Outstanding representaion. Made my dificult case easier on for me to endure.
Jim Spievak broke down both legal and my personal participation in a way I could understand and put my best efforts forward. Jim worked and won a large personal injury case for my several years ago. It was a very difficult time for me. Jim took on my case and in a very skilled manor approached this case with sensitivity and resolve. He had all my interests covered. I was so please with his skills and the award granted because of him. I have since used him for all my legal needs. He has set up business partnerships, reviews all my contracts, advises my on my estate plan and will look after all my affairs in the future. My experience with Jim Spievak is of the highest merit, as he set the bar very high for me. I without hesitation give him the highest of marks.

My counsel
I have had the pleasure of being a client of Mr. Spievak for over 20 years. He has handled both my personal affairs as well as being corporate counsel to my investment banking business. Jim has exceptional abilities to understand quickly and add clarity to complex issues. He is extremely diligent and free from bias in his judgment. I have referred Jim to several of my business clients who were very satisfied with his representation in the sale of their companies. Highly recommend. Mark Lubash Paragon & Company, Inc.

At last
In the beginning of our working relationship I found his attention to detail and complete review of our case frustrating as I wanted quick answers and action. As time went on I became very thank for those two traits. I found his work to be complete and I was never surprised as a situation wore on. Often in the past I would be in the middle of a situation only to find out new things and new possible outcomes, I had no surprises with Jim. he brought something extra to each case, which was honesty and keeping me honest even, when in the heat of a situation I wanted to be impulsive. He would make clear the proper course to take and gently moved me in that direction. His loyalty to me as a client was far beyond what I have experienced in the past I have a lot of trust in Jim and recommend him to any one needing competent representation , especially with difficult situations
