Jeff Sperline was a good choice.
Jeff was very good at staying on track with giving legal advice during a very difficult time. His strength was being able to tell you what you need to know and hear instead of what you want to hear. As a mediator he was on top of his game. Mediation can be very challenging when balancing legal advice with the client along with the stresses of the personalities and emotions of the different parties involved.

One lawyer with great character!
Mr. Sperline came highly recommended after dissatisfaction with a previous attorney. How refreshing it was to find an attorney that had more concern for the case than for his wallet! I'm certain that his concern for his clients is genuine, and that the investment of his time in each case is out of a sincere desire to do the right thing. He returned calls and emails promptly, gave us the details that we needed to make informed decisions, and gave us his best recommendations. He is an ethical, moral attorney, one to treasure!

Terrible experience
I begged for money back after learning that this firm did absolutely nothing for my case. They kept the majority of my retainer and sent me back a box full of the personal matters of another person's case, duplicate copies of my case and letters from opposing counsel begging for Mr. Sperline to stop missing deadlines and comply. Tried contacting Mr. Sperline numerous times to no avail. After I dropped services, the things that I was unfairly billed for months in advance were suddenly filed with the court. NOTE--- AFTER services were cancelled and with no effort on his firms part. I would not recommend in ANY way. Overbilled and under-serviced is an understatement.

Response from Jeffrey Sperline November 15, 2019
I am sorry you feel this way, but I am confused by your comments. On October 22, after we agreed I would no longer be representing you, you posted a 5 star review on Google (that you have since removed) stating the following: "I would absolutely recommend Mr. Sperline. He is honest and cares about his clients. That's a rare trait among attorneys. If you are looking for honesty, reliability, and trust, please consider him." I don't understand the 180 degree change. Again, I am truly sorry you feel I did not meet your expectations. Good luck going forward. -Jeff Sperline
