Great Consultation!
I consulted with Ehud, an associate attorney at Spencer Young's office, to help us determine whether outstanding wages were owed from a previous employer. Ehud was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and took the time to really understand our concerns and point of view. We were ultimately able to formalize our plan of action thanks to Ehud's guidance. I highly recommend this law firm to anyone who is looking for a great employment law attorney and wouldn't hesitate for a second to hire them if needed.

Great experience!
Great response time! Very thorough! Knows his stuff! My experience was first rate and would recommend Mr. Young because he took the time to address my concerns, provide clear examples, and most importantly, he listened.

He is an advocate!
I found Spencer through a mutual contact after I was terminated while on disability and lost my medical coverage, including the ability to pay for treatment for the injury. That first phone call with Mr. Young mostly consisted of me crying and trying to explain the timeline of events, but by the time we hung up, I knew I had made the right decision to call him. Throughout the entire process, he was nothing but professional. He listened when I voiced my fears, he explained everything in detail so that I stayed informed, and he helped me recover my lost wages and medical fees. I honestly don’t know how I would have survived without Spencer in my corner fighting for me. He became my advocate when I was too emotionally, physically, and mentally exhausted to advocate for myself.

A lawyer that actually cares
I am currently embroiled in a bad situation at work and frantically messaged attorneys this morning for consultations. Most responded with hourly rates. But Spencer called me and gave me an hour of his day at no cost to really listen, probe deeper, ask questions, and ultimately provide me with the courage and framework to move forward. My situation is evolving, so it is possible I might need the services of an attorney. Right now I don't. But when I do, it will be Spencer that I call. He comes off as very bright and a total fighter, which is what you'd want if you were taking on an employer. Thank you Spencer!

Excellent employment attorney
Spencer Young is a excellent Oakland employment attorney. I hired him in 2014 because an employer failed to pay my wages and several paychecks bounced. He accepted my case when other attorneys had turned me down. Spencer obtained a very good settlement that recouped my wages, penalties, and then some. He kept me informed about the case and promptly returned my phone calls. If you are looking for a trustworthy Oakland employment attorney, call Spencer Young.

Immediate, Thorough, and Helpful Consultation
I was connected to Mr. Young almost immediately and he spent a half hour of his own time to assist me greatly. If I need further assistance I will be sure to hire Mr. Young.

Great business attorney!
Spencer Young helped me get my standard contract in order. He straightened out areas where there were inconsistencies and conflicting statements. He spent a lot of time talking to me about my business so he could make sure the contract covered everything it should. He also got me thinking about adding an arbitration clause and worked with me to clean up vague statements that could be interpreted in more than one way. He also helped me with a collections problem I had and drafted a letter for me to send out. I highly recommend Spencer Young to anyone who needs a good business attorney.

Fantastic advocate
Spencer is my go-to for business litigation issues. Mr. Young knows the intricacies of each step in the litigation process and is able to articulate them to me in rudimentary terms that I understand. From our meetings via Skype to our face-to-face interactions Spencer has always been on time and did what it took to protect his client.

Representation
I was a client of Spencer Young in 2011.My experience then was very professional; Mr Young gave me honest legal opinion of my case, expectations and possible challenges. Above all, Mr Young was always there when I needed him, we had a very healthy communication (email/phone).He gave me timely updates, kept me in the know and he was very respectful and sensitive to me as a person and as a client, I never doubted Mr. Young professional services, he created room and environment conducive for client/attorney relationship. I have nothing else to say about Mr. Young except that he goes over and beyond call of duty to serve his clients. I will engage his services again if I may need a lawyer; he has my honest support and recommendation.

Great, expedient, effective work
I *would* recommend this lawyer to friends, and indeed *have* recommended him to several people. I have only had cause to use Spencer Young's services once, but he delivered phenomenally. Very expedient and professional. Fortunately, he is good enough at what he does that we were able to avoid court simply by a letter or two that he wrote. The company threatening to sue me never contacted me again. I would hire Mr. Young again in a heartbeat.

Michael V. Smith vs. C VS Pharmacy
Mr. Young gives new meaning to the word advocate. He accepted my case when other firms turned me down based on the amount that could reasonably be expected. He was always straight forward and kept me fully informed at every point for the duration of the case. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Young to anyone in need of legal services.

S. C, Young
I engaged Spencer for what was by most anyone's measure, a minor offense. He treated it seriously, researched it carefully and surprised both me and the presiding judge with his reasoning ability. There wasn't a doubt in my mind that he was 100% in my court; Moreover he is in possession of a great sense of humor, in place of the patronizing sense of entitlement present in so many others in his field. I look foreward to working with Spencer again.

Spencer C. Young: Professional, Caring, Highly Recommended
Spencer was exceptionally helpful during my case. I was entering uncharted territory, and really didn't know how I should proceed, but Spencer handled everything and took me through the entire process - start to finish - successfully. I'm so thankful for his help. I highly recommend him to my friends, and see him as a life-long reference and aid.

Finally an attorney who listens...
Mr. Young made an awful situation something more bearable for my family and me. He broke down an overwhelming set of facts and circumstance into something we could manage and understand. He also listened to my family and me and asked questions that indicated he actually cared about our interests rather than simply his billables. While I hope to avoid requiring legal representation in the near future, Mr. Young will be our representative moving forward, regardless of the issue. He is actually an attorney you can trust...he provides counsel when so many others simply wish to execute on their own agenda.

Excellent Personal Injury Lawyer
Spencer got me a great settlement on my personal injury case. I was hit by another driver in 2011. My medical costs were not high but I had tremendous pain. Spencer obtained a settlement fast at no cost to me. He returned my phone calls within 24 hours. I highly recommend him.

Unprofessional
Just got off the phone with a man from the firm. He asked me a few questions in regards to what I was inquiring about. Before I could even finish, he tells me: He is busy with other cases and he doesn’t have time! Maybe I should reach out to someone else. I already had another attorney on hold on my other line anyway. He was RUDE AND SUPER UNPROFESSIONAL. Don’t call this firm. The website states: Since 2006 our formula has always been simple: we listen, etc. Unfortunately that formula is outdated! He never even listened to my case for over 1 min.

Response from Spencer Young June 20, 2022
Sorry you had this experience. I find it curious that you felt the need to lie about that conversation on this page though. I listened to what you had to say and right away realized I could not help you with your case. I was honest with you that I am too busy to take on a case that I did not think I could help you with. I try to give people honest feed back as quickly as possible, and that's what I did. You responded with something to the effect of, "No problem" or "That's ok, I have another attorney on the other line." Your reaction earlier today is completely different from what you say above. I suspect your various other troll reviews don't match reality either.

Warning, do not hire!
Took my money and quit. Unprofessional and unethical. Did not inform me he had no expertise in my area of law. Lost many of my causes of action, then quit my case.
Response from Spencer Young June 28, 2018
I have compassion for this former client. He has been in and out of legal battles for decades. Nothing seems to go his way. He’s sadly become toxic in body, speech and mind due to viscious government employers. I don’t blame him for being angry and venting. Having a bad life, case and being bitter about it, does NOT, however, excuse down right false statements and complete mischaracterization of facts. This person has intentionally omitted key information that our (mostly) friendly Avvo readers and Yelpers deserve to know. First, this office took a financial loss on this case. We worked our tails off for over a year. This client still owes us money. Second, this was a classic retaliation and discrimination case. We’ve been doing these cases for over a decade with great results. Please check out our other reviews. Third, the causes of action he says we “lost” were dismissed by the judge for lack of evidence. Not all cases and claims are winners. We saved the parts of the case that had merit. Fourth, we didn’t “quit”. We withdrew for cause because the working relationship became intolerable. The judge granted our request to withdraw for cause. This client was impossible to work with. Nothing we ever did was good enough. It’s miserable working for people like that. Fifth, the part about asking for money from co-workers is outrageous and false. We fund our cases from clients and past cases. We covered the loss on this client’s case by digging into savings from past cases. Finally, please note the extreme language: “Worst attorney ever”. This person has no basis to make such a sweeping accusation. It’s hurtful and rude. We could go on, point by point, but it’s fruitless to banter with madness. Lawsuits are not pleasant endeavors. They are challenging and stressful. We are not perfect. The brave people that come to us are often ticked off, and for good reason – they’ve been harmed. They come to us for justice. Others, like this client, for vengeance. When things don’t go their way, they stay on the attack, because that’s all they know. The have become the struggle. They can’t stop fighting and blaming. This person, god bless him, has no quit in him. But he sees everything through the lens of victim mind. He made representation completely ineffective and showed no trust or respect. Who in their Right Mind would work for someone like that? Not us. This client is not concerned about us victimizing others. He’s expressing pain, suffering and victimization that needs an outlet. Yelp is great place to say whatever you want, even cry “Wolf!” We are very proud of our “People Love Us on Yelp” sticker. ad our 10 rating on Avvo. Readers, please consider that there are multiple sides of every story. We ask that you come to our office, meet us, read our other reviews, call our past clients, talk to our referral partners and colleagues, do your own due diligence, vet us yourself, and take this review with a huge Costco economy container of salt. We think you’ll be glad you did. We stand by our decisions on how we handled this case. We are relieved to be rid of the most unpleasant client in our firm’s proud 13- year history serving employees, the injured, and other folks with the courage to exercise their rights.

misleading
When I first contacted Mr Young, he seemed enthusiastic about my potential case and asked me to send him more information. I also told him that I had an appointment with the ombudsman. He told me not to take that meeting and gave me a date when he was available to go with me to that meeting. I changed the date to the one he wanted, and sent him the information he requested. I hadn't heard from him for about 4 days, and when I contacted him, he said that he was busy with another case right now. I told him that the meeting date was coming up. He told me to change it again. A day or two later, he said that he reviewed the material and that I have a case. I told him the new date of the meeting, a date he chose, and he said that he couldn't make it at the time that it was twice rescheduled per his request. I then sent him more material and after a few more email exchanges, he said that he researched the entity that I have a dispute with, was not a public entity, so I had a year to file. I told him that it was a public entity, so I only had 6 months to file. I checked with a person who would know exactly if it was or was not a public entity and I found out it was. I forwarded that information to Mr. Young. I got an email from him saying now he can not represent me and basically waste my time. I jumped through hoops, changed two meetings to accommodate his schedule, and after all that, he declines my case. Bad form.

Response from Spencer Young April 17, 2018
I am sorry you had a bad experience, but your statement above in inaccurate. You wanted me to attend that meeting with you from the beginning, before we ever met, or signed an attorney-client agreement. That is highly irregular and gave me serious pause. You changed the dates to accommodate your need to be represented because you wanted help, I did not ask you to. In fact, I didn't want you to because we had no attorney-client relationship and I thought the meeting was a sham PR stunt. You started steering the ship in ways I did not want from the start. I don't work well with rogue clients. I did not research the entity you have a dispute with. I read case law that says that the entity may not be a public entity for tort claims act presentation purposes. You then called a non-lawyer to answer the wrong question which confirmed your incorrect position. You did not bother to ask me what law or case I read. Now you write a post based on your false information from a non-lawyer and post it here to make yourself feel right? I stand by my decision to not represent this rogue client. It's impossible to lead a case when the client takes matters into their own hands, sets unplanned meetings, claims to know the law but doesn't read it, and uses uninformed sources to get direction. Here is the case that appears to stand for the proposition that a charter school need not be treated like a public entity for tort claims act purposes. There may be other cases after it that limit it's holding or disapprove of it's rational, but at least this shows what I was talking about so you are less disillusioned about what happened. https://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=7340554010707127564&q=knapp+vs+palisades&hl=en&as_sdt=4,5
