Spenser Reese Housewright is amazing!
When I was faced with the most traumatic time in my life , I reached out to a friend who is a well respected family counselor in the Frisco/Plano area in originally seeking counseling for my young daughter. In sharing with her what was happening to my family she asked if I needed legal counsel as well. I did and she recommended Spenser. I reached out to Spenser and immediately felt comforted. I knew she was going to guide me through one of the hardest processes I have ever been through. Spenser listened, comforted, and explained every step of the process and was a constant confidant standing right by my side. She fought and fought hard to get my daughter and I what we deserved. I cannot thank Spenser enough. I would absolutely recommend Spenser Reese Housewright for legal counsel time and time again.

Compassionate
From day one Spenser made my case a priority and stayed in constant contact updating and advising me on everything happening. She has handled everything efficiently and in a timely manner and has never left me waiting or guessing. It is difficult to work outside on heavy machinery and answer calls and she has been flexible and understanding. Definitely recommend her.

Essential for Divorce
When I needed an attorney when I filed for divorce I asked trusted friends and was given Spencer's contact information. I needed someone to guide me and hold my hand and she was kind and intelligent and along the way never failed to answer the smallest question about the process. She was patient when I was emotional and such an essential part of my support team during such a difficult time in my life. Spenser advocated for me and did such a fantastic job. The outcome was ideal. I could not have had such a positive experience or outcome if not for Spenser and her team. I highly recommend.

Divorce
Immediately when I spoke with Spenser she was efficient and professional, which put me at ease knowing she would represent me in my divorce. Spenser fought for what I needed and truly put in the time and effort to ensure that I would have a good outcome. She is professional with great customer service. She made herself available to me and worked with my schedule. She handled my divorce quickly and efficiently. Divorce is horrible and Spenser stood by my side and made sure my needs were expressed and writtent in my divorce Decree. She explained everything in detail and made the process smooth. Overall I am very happy with the outcome I got. I asked for what is best for myself and my kids and that is what Spenser fought to get me. If I ever need another family law lawyer I will call Spenser and her team.

The Divorce Maestro
As I start this new chapter of my life, I wanted to extend my deepest thanks for Spenser's exceptional support and guidance. I felt overwhelmed with stress and uncertainty when I sought legal counsel for my divorce. However, Spenser’s professionalism, empathy, and dedication to my case have been a source of immense relief and comfort throughout the entire process. Her expertise in family law and divorce matters has been evident at every step of the journey. From providing clear explanations of complex legal terms to ensuring I understood my rights and options, she has been a steadfast advocate and a trusted advisor. The way she listens attentively to my concerns and fears while offering practical solutions and calming assurances sets her apart. Not only has she been a skilled attorney, but also a compassionate ally who truly cares about her clients' well-being. As a result of her prompt response to my queries and regular updates on the progress of my case, I have been relieved of a great deal of stress. Having such a capable and caring professional representing me has given me the strength to deal with this difficult situation. I truly believe that her dedication to achieving the best possible outcome for me has contributed significantly to the resolution of my divorce. The peace of mind she brought to me during this difficult time cannot be adequately expressed. It is with sincere gratitude that I extend my appreciation for her outstanding work. The services of Spenser are highly recommended to anyone who needs a trustworthy and compassionate attorney.

Divorce sucks, but I had great representation
Divorce sucks... especially when you don't want it. A mutual friend introduced me to Spenser and she took the time to connect and hear me out. She was also able to help me navigate the treacherous waters when I didn't have the headspace to do so myself. I highly recommend her services.

Spencer did an amazing job navigating me through the legal issues relating to my divorce. I would highly recommend her and the team at Fee, Smith, Sharp & Vitullo!

Prenup client
Spenser did a great job of legally articulating exactly what I was trying to accomplish with some premarital planning. She seemed to be not only focused on the task at hand, but she also offered great advice as to how each and every component would relate to the future. I will say that while a prenup can be a very stressful time for a soon to be married couple, Spenser provided prompt and clearly caring advice along the way. She seemed to grasp the high emotions at play, and seamlessly navigated me back to task and through the process. I'm very thankful for the advice and the documents Spenser produced, but I'm more thankful for the professionalism and promptness displayed at all times. My phone calls and emails were always returned promptly. I would highly recommend Spenser.
