This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Terry’s comment: “This is not correct and is false. Terry R. Spencer has never been reprimanded by the Idaho State Bar. This Reprimand should be removed as it is misleading.”

Terry Spencer has been in my corner for five years now through a very messy divorce. The other party refused to cooperate and yet Terry made it happen! TERRY WON IN COURT EVERY SINGLE TIME! That is a record that speaks for itself. He has gone out of his way for me multiple times to meet when and where I can and has answered every question that I ever asked. Terry will not mince words, he is very concise and will tell it how it is, in and out of the courtroom but that is what you want in an attorney. I have referred multiple people to Terry over the years and they were all so thankful that I did because he is amazing.

Terry has been handling my divorce now for a few years and is doing an amazing job!, he has also handled my bankruptcy and did so flawlessly, he is an amazing attorney that knows his job very well, he has earned my eternal respect which is not an easy feat. Do not be fooled by those that would post negative reviews, he and those in his employ know what they're doing. I would not trust any other attorney with matters that impact the lives of my children and I.

I retained Terry Oct. 25, 2013 with $2,500 and paid him another $2,500 Jan. 2, 2014. Terry severely underrepresented me for over a year. I'm told by another attorney that his objection to my temporary order is badly written. He didn't even attempt to have my exorbitant CS and alimony judgment--$8,000 per month--modified after we discussed it and I delivered one or more paystubs from my new employer to him. Once, in order to obtain clarification on something, when I used the mobile number he'd told me to use any time, he yelled at me, telling me, "GOOGLE IT, STEVE!" He was almost always either condescending, rude, interruptive, and even contemptuous, or any combination of the aforementioned. He did almost nothing through all of 2014 then jumped into reactive mode over a year after I retained him and only when the Petitioner had to act or her case would be thrown out. When I obtained sufficient funds in Spring of 2015, I retained someone else who informed Terry his "services" would no longer be needed. Then, over a negative yelp.com review, he threatened to sue me for defamation. I chose to defend my legally recognized, Constitutionally protected, statutorily enforceable liberty to inform others of my negative experiences with Terry, so he filed suit for $100k for for "defamation", "intentional infliction of emotional distress", "intentional interference of economic relations”, “declaratory relief”, and “breach of contract”. He attached our correspondence from the divorce case to the defamation suit and the judge was forced by his recklessness to have to seal it. In an attempt to manufacture embarrassing situations for me, he subpoenaed the Petitioner (yes, my soon-to-be ex-wife), my new divorce attorney, and, strangely, not someone in Human Resources, but someone in Finance from my employer to whom I'd made a negative comment about him. He continued to bill me throughout his suit against me, but BEGAN TO BILL ME FOR LINE ITEMS ASSOCIATED WITH SUING ME! And his demands for an out of court settlement bordered on the insane. So as not to leave any doubt about the meritlessness of his claims, the judge dismissed his defamation suit with prejudice. If you insist on retaining him, I strongly suggest you keep yourself in the right, take copious notes, get everything in writing, write memoranda of understanding to him, and keep funds on hand to file suit against him and/or defend yourself against his ridiculous attacks and preserve your First Amendment protected freedom of speech. He's not helpful. He's not honest. He's not ethical.
