I have been thoroughly impressed by the service but even more so because the burden of worry was lifted. I was working with the best and of course winning our case has kept us all smiles!

Spencer exemplifies the true meaning of "You get what you pay for".
His expertise and knowledge and overall careful thought process led to a victorious and momentous win in our appeal to the State !
95% of cases like mine lose! We won!
In other words, this should tell you that Spencer is in the top 5% of Lawyers going against cases with little to no chance of winning.
Job well done!
David Speckman, Chapter 11 bankruptcy Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Spencer is a talented litigator who exhibits a consistent level of professionalism. Spencer has mastered the skill of aggressively advocating his client’s interests while building positive relationships with his peers, even those on the opposite side of the negotiating table. If I was in need of a top level litigator, Spencer would certainly be on the short list of prospective attorneys.
