  • Marilynn Mika Spencer

    I have known Jim Guziak for at least 10 years and possibly as many as 15. I first met him through our mutual membership in the California Employment Lawyers Association (CELA). Over the years, I've come to know Jim as a talented, hard-working, and ethical attorney. He's had some impressive wins in extremely difficult cases; I attribute this to his knowledge, experience, and dedication to his clients. Jim is a good colleague with a great reputation in CELA and the legal community, and I'm glad to endorse him.
