Attorney Spencer and her team are wonderful! An attorney that isn’t all about the money but truly concerned about what is right. She knows the law and will work hard to get you what you deserve! The team is respectful and thorough and from day one Attorney Spencer to the time to hear and understand my concerns. My daughter is a minor and she took this case on without hesitation and in the end was more concerned about getting what my daughter was owed more that getting paid herself. I can not thank Attorney Spencer and her team enough!

My case was solved within two weeks. The Spencer firm negotiated my severance package, double the timeline originally offered and I was able to keep my benefits for 9 months. Not originally offered by my previous employer. I can’t thank them enough for the professionalism and great communication during the process.

The experience was NOTHING short of amazing! The Spencer firm was responsive, sympathetic and determined to get a speedy and fair resolution! At the time that I came to them, I was going through what I was the most difficult period in my life. The level of care and competence is unmatched and I will surely refer them to anyone who may need their services in the future. Many that’s to Deyka and the team!
