About David

I'M HERE TO FIGHT FOR YOU.

From their offices in Century City and Downtown Los Angeles, the attorneys of the Spivak Law Firm fight for the rights of people who have been wrongfully discharged from employment that they depended on. Employee rights attorney David Spivak and his associates understand that many terminations are unfair, retaliatory, discriminatory or otherwise illegal and that monetary compensation is owed to victims of such wrongdoing. They can take legal action on your behalf in a court of law to get you the damages and unpaid wages you deserve for being wrongfully terminated from employment. 

David Spivak and his team have achieved phenomenal results inside and outside of the courtroom. They have obtained millions of dollars in judgments and settlements for their clients throughout the State of California.

Unfair wages
I was very pleased with the Spivac firm. The staff was amazing and David Spivac took care of my case and went above and beyond. I've never been in this situation before and was not sure at first because I work full time and have a family and didn't have time to spare but this firm took charge and handled everything. Im so glad I went through with the case and what a great feeling it is to be working with such a confident firm .

Highly Recommended
I feel so fortunate to have been put in touch with David Spivak and his team a little over 3 years ago. He and his firm ended up representing myself and the rest of the class members in a class action case against my former employers regarding labor code violations / illegal payroll practices, and though it's been a journey, the case was finally settled, and I am very satisfied with the outcome. During the process, David provided excellent advice to me as my counsel, and after working with him in person, I realized that he really does look out for your best interests and will go above and beyond to fight for you. I am so grateful for all of the hard work that David and his team put into the case. He and his staff are all very professional and knowledgeable in employment law, and I would definitely recommend him and his firm for any related cases.

David is the attorney you are looking for.
David is a great advocate and listener, is always prepared and is knowledgeable and very experienced. He gives excellent advise and understands how to work with his clients and other attorneys. He returns calls, includes you in the planning stages, is fair and level headed - yet fierce. He has integrity, will tell you the truth and help you make the right choices.

Right man for the job
When I was first looking for a lawyer to take on my case, I was told that I had no case. David Spivak was the only lawyer who was interested in taking on my case. Very informative every step of the way and David always made sure I understood what legal process was going on. David id also great at keeping in contact with you via email.

Extremely poor organization/ overworked employees
If you want to hire a firm with 8 unprofessional and impatient employees, pick this one. Good luck with getting your questions answered and with your calls returned. Found out that there are 3 support staff with 130 cases! Btw neither of them have received one on one professional training. Complete internal disorganization and poor communication..Should not be allowed to practice..Serious disappointment in the legal field.
