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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

I was surprised by a shocking legal issue that arose from an incident in my life 40 years ago....it was exceedingly embarrassing and impacted dramatically my capacity to proceed with current plans...thus...i had to find someone i could trust to be competent, resourceful, diligent, and discreet....Spencer Young was all of this and more...He took on my legal issue as a Gallant Advocate and brought me through to a successful conclusion that left me satisfied, relieved, and ever so happy!
I highly recommend Spencer to faithfully tend your legal needs with committed integrity AND Compassion
He has restored my appreciation of lawyers because Spencer Cares AND gets the job done!!

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.

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.

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.
