After speaking candidly with Mr. Spencer all my doubts of making the right decision disappeared. I knew what choices I had, made my decision, and can go forward in life with confidence and clarity. Mr. Spencer was prompt, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Thank you, Mr. Spencer!

Kevin stepped in very quickly and effectively to help me in a time of great need. We talked on Thursday and he ended up working extensively over the weekend to get something filed with the court the following Monday. He communicated effectively use phone, email and texts to keep me current on the case. He was very professional and very effective. He got a default judgment reversed and the entire matter concluded quickly. It was great having Kevin on my side and looking out for my interests.

My sister was put to the test and hired these AWESOME ATTORNEYS. The were a blessing from God during our whole long and drawn out ordeal they never once gave us any doubt of their ability to fight. Kevin Spencer is the “” He put our concerns to the forefront and accomplished all. Highly recommendable.

Customer Review

It was a very daunting task to hire an attorney in another state to represent 14 beneficiaries without ever meeting in person, yet, from our first conversation I felt at ease about my selection. Upon finally meeting him and his wonderful staff, it was a solid confirmation that I had made the right choice for our family. Not only is Kevin extremely knowledgable and focused, he genuinely cares. He embraced our family and fought for us as if we were his own. I couldn’t have hired a better firm.
