ASTONISHINGLY EXPERIENCED ATTORNEY; BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME!

When I called Sam regarding an RN issue with the Board, he immediately contacted me and informed me of what may be ahead of me, what to expect and how it should handled. His confidence gave light into his experience and allowed me to rest assured that I had contacted the right Attorney. We then hired Sam and his Senior Associate Attorney Elizabeth. Sam and Elizabeth then developed a detailed action plan, worked tirelessly in an effort to strategize as a team, and guided me regarding the Investigation Case, developing a compelling argument on my behalf gathering forensic expert evidence and gave the best counsel regarding how to proceed with the case which was essential as well as invaluable. Elizabeth and Sam were with me every step of the way and were understanding of my situation as well as compassionate, gave the best counsel and were generous with their time. Sam’s Senior Associate Attorney Elizabeth even assisted me with another issue for which she hadn’t been retained. These Attorneys, Sam and Elizabeth are truly the “BEST” and I am very grateful for ALL their help and hard work! Resulted in the best possible Outcome: -BRN investigation was closed as a final disposition; -Early Termination of Probation granted. ***THANK GOD!!!

Passionate and enthusiastic to help.

I am a LVN and I was seeking a really good attorney who could help me with an issue that I had with the BVNPT. I called Sam and I was incredibly impressed. He was informative and very helpful. This was actually my first call to an attorney in regards to my case and I never looked back. Sam was so eager to help. He offered information and assistance without anything in return. Because my case was a little more complicated, he referred me to the appropriate attorney that could be of great assistance to my case. If you are looking for someone who is eager to help and who is passionate about their work, then I highly recommend Sam. I had a great experience with Sam and I am so thankful for his help. Thank you Sam!

Issues with the California BRN? You MUST contact Sam Spital, Criminal Defense and Administrative Law Attorney

After an internet search for RN Licensure Defense Attorneys, I was fortunate enough to contact Mr.Sam Spital. He immediately contacted me by phone, asked several pertinent questions, and began discussing a defense strategy. After numerous phone and email conversations with Sam Spital, he then gave my case to one of his principal attorneys. They collaborated on my case, communicated with me and built an effective strategy to address the California BRN. Because of their strong defense, my case was dropped by the BRN. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mr. Spital to any RN who has a complaint filed against them with the California BRN.

Clinical Pharmacist

Mr. Spital spent more time with me over the phone compared to the total time spent talking to numerous attorneys in my home state. He graciously & politely explained the legal process along with the pros & cons of hiring an attorney not in my home state. I felt great ease and comfort speaking with this “kindred spirit”…and I have never said that (or felt that) about any lawyer. That speaks volumes!

The most humble genuine and caring man you will ever meet!

I just want everyone to know that Sam is truly a wonderful person, an amazing attorney and the most smartest and kindest individual you will have the pleasure of meeting shall you seek his expertise. His passion to help and at the same time educate the people who seek his help is remarkable!
Sometimes when an individual has been in a specialty/profession for a long time, it becomes part of them, like second nature and they stop practicing from their heart because it becomes a mechanical approach.

This is why Samuel Spital is one of the few “GREATS”!
Although I KNOW that practicing law is second nature for you, Sam you haven’t lost the drive to really and truly help, embrace and support the people who are vulnerable and are in need of advice, guidance and councel! Your passion pours out of your heart Sam, don’t ever stop touching peoples lives!

I’m thankful that our paths crossed, you forever left an imprint in our hearts!

Highly recommended

I called Mr. Spital’s office this morning and he found time to speak to me on the same day. His advice was extremely valuable.

He really is excellent!

I have used Sam for several situations now and he has not let me down. In fact, I moved out of San Diego, but after frustration dealing with other lawyers, I called him to see if he could help again! He couldn’t- it wasn’t his area of expertise, which tells you that he knows his niche and he is very very very good at it. I highly recommend you at least talk to him; his heart is really in trying to help you.

He delivered

Mr. Spital delivered what he said he would. That sums up my review… A big thanks, too!

Winning Attorney for BRN cases

I was accused of false allegations by the Board of Nursing. To make matters worse I was finishing up more graduate school and potential probation would prevent me from gaining licensure as a nurse practitioner. I also carry multiple state licenses which could all be subjected to discipline and at the time I was planning on moving out of state. It was in my best interest to obtain the best possible outcome for my case. I wholeheartedly felt I did not deserve an unduly harsh sentence of probation. I consulted many attorneys and was conflicted as this was my first time needing one. After a careful discussion with both, I ultimately choice Sam and Elizabeth. Sam blatantly told me he could never predict what the outcome would be, but I should never accept defeat without trying…. He also was the only attorney who told me step by step what I should do…even if I chose NOT to hire his team. I believe I received a winning result because he gave me crucial advice early on….something no other lawyer did. Conversing with him felt like I was speaking with my father and not a lawyer. He always had MY best interest at heart and I greatly appreciated that!! He listened to all my personal concerns and even provided great career advice! After consulting with Elizabeth over the phone, I felt confident she was best for me. I wanted someone with years of experience dealing with the BON and she had plenty. I found her to be intelligent, meticulous, and responsive. She formulated a perfect mitigation package and with her help we obtained the best possible outcome for my case! Their team worked tirelessly to obtain an unprecedented result on charges filed by the State Board. I live out of state, and I believe his team was worth every penny because: they got the job done. Thank you Sam and Elizabeth!

Sam got me my Respiratory Care Practitioners license

I contacted Mr. Spital when faced with a denial to practice health care. Throughout the gruesome process of this denial, Mr. Spital offered not only his legal expertise but also encouragement. He didn’t treat me like a client, but rather as a beloved son.
His experience as former deputy attorney [general] makes him a wealth of knowledge in the area of administrative proceedings. Mr. Spital helped me get favorable outcome and has earned a life-time of trust from me. Thanks be to God for Mr. Spital!

Great Attorney Great Advice and Consult

Mr Sam Spital gave me great advice that helped me navigate my way through a legal issue involving a misdemeanor that I received.

Too late for me

I was very desperate as I couldn’t find a job as NP or RN after receiving probation from the BRN 2016. Case was started in 2011 as RN, accusation filed 2015. I wanted to know what I can do about probation. Essentially what had been done was done. But Mr. Spital advised me of what is needed during this time of probation. How to look for jobs, what to do during the interim of probation, and how to make me look productive and actually getting things done to better myself. I can’t believe he spent at least 30 min with me! There was more advice and positive comments to help self esteem. I only wished I had retained his counsel when this whole thing started. I may have gotten a letter of reprimand instead of probation or even dismissed…. I like to say next time, BUT, there is NO next time!!!! If you know what I mean. Once is enough. But certainly, if I need to shorten probation, I will ask for Mr. Spital’s help. Thank you for the strategies and cheer.

Excellent Defense of CSLB Accusation

I contacted Mr. Spital regarding an accusation filed against me by the CSLB. The accusation sought to revoke my license for a felony conviction. Mr. Spital took extra time on a Saturday afternoon to give me a thorough consultation by phone. His approach was direct and honest when describing the process and possible out comes. I decided to retain his firm to represent me. The possible outcomes where revocation, suspension, or other disciplinary actions including large fines/bonds. I expected some sort of punishment, but the out come blew my mind! After his firm submitted a detailed mitigation package to the Attorney General the CSLB withdrew the accusation in its entirety! I highly recommend Mr. Spital and his associate Elizabeth.

Awesome Attorney

Here I am on a Sunday afternoon fretting about a complaint filed with the BRN, I call Mr. Spital and he answers the phone and helps me to sort through the jargon in the BRN letters. After the phone call I feel so much better and that I have the best Attorney in my corner.
I love my job, I love to help my community and worked hard to get my RN licenses and I want only the best to help me resolve this complaint. Mr. Spital is the man for the job. Thanks bunches Mr. Spital.

Awesome

Spoke with Sam for about 40 minutes yesterday in regard to a potential work issue. He advised me on how to handle this and any possible problems that arise. Even though I did not need to retain him immediately, he assured me our conversation still was safe under attorney client privilege. If I do need to retain a lawyer in the future, he will be the one I call. Genuine caring man who set my mind at ease. Knowing his experience and having him.on my side has really been a blessing. Happy 50 years to you and your wife Sam,

Extremely helpful, knowlegable, right guy at the right time

I’m grateful for being referred to Mr. Spital last week after receiving a letter regarding a notification from a licensing board about a client complaint issue. I didn’t have to provide a lot of backstory, or explanation about my profession; psychotherapist/social worker, as Mr. Spital had a comforting familiarity and expertise with the topics/concerns I mentioned. Although this was an unofficial consultation in my state of confusion about how to move forward, I was impressed and relieved by the clarification and description of different options provided to pursue in resolving the matter at hand, such as ideas about what to include in a written response to the licensing board. Mr. Spital got right to the point, offered straight forward feedback, as if he’d worked on hundreds of cases like mine. He has a refreshingly off-the-cuff personality which set me at ease after the stress of confronting a problem I’d never experienced and thought it would be difficult, if not impossible to find an attorney with his experience and specialization/s, i.e., licensing boards and administrative law. Thankfully, sometimes different circumstances come together and you get exactly what you need at the right time. Mr. Spital arrived at my time of need and look forward to proceeding, hiring him as my lawyer to suit the situation at hand.
Can’t thank you enough.
Sincerely,

Excellent Attorney

Mr. Spital saved my career as a RN. After retaining Mr. Spital and telling him all the details regarding my situation with family court and a bogus domestic violence restraining order, he gave me excellent advice. He inspired me to collect all the important facts that made me chose and continue in my career as a nurse. I felt he truly supported me like he would his own family member. I was accused of Domestic Violence and knew there would be a negative impact on my career. Together we put together a tough defense and I felt very liberated. This attorney won’t let you lose and will do anything to lift your integreity. I feel very fortunate that I have someone like Mr. Spital to turn to with any type of legal problem. He is full of excellent advice and will take you through the process. I was able to settle my case but was ready to protect my RN license, my career which means the most to me. I felt respected and cared for by Mr. Spital. He was very generous with his time over the phone. It wasn’t about money for Mr. Spital, it was a deep concern that showed me there are people that truly care.
I definitely would use this attorney again if I need to.

Honest and Passionate

I wished I would have contacted Samuel Spital earlier in regarding possible disciplinary about my professional license because he truly cares about people and is honest.

Above and Beyond Consultation

I called Sam for legal counsel regarding a situation in which I feared my license may be at risk. He was nonjudgmental and readily available to answer my questions. His response time to questions was fast, which was incredibly important because my need for legal counsel was urgent due to short timelines. He helped me walk through complicated details of the case to determine my next course of action and was honest with me when that turned out to be consulting with another attorney with a specific area of expertise that he does not have. He took well over the 60 minutes of free consultation time advertised in order to help me make truly informed decisions, and I am grateful for his services. I highly recommend his services if needed.

Best lawyer

I have never encountered a lawyer with such expertise who is at the same time kind and very caring. I was in a panic mode after receiving a letter from the BRN over the weekend saying something happened during my renewal process. This is the first time I ever got anything like this in my almost 40 years of nursing career. I called several lawyers and they were, of course, closed . I came across this law firm and was so blessed . Sam answered just like the reviews said. He is simply phenomenal and guided me through the process. I couldn’t thank him enough for giving me some peace of mind. Thanks again Sam from the bottom of my heart.

Best in the west

I have contacted Sam’s office and left a massage, Sam called me within 20 min. he listened to my case, gave me detailed answers to all my questions and advised me on getting a local lawyer in my neck of the woods (we are 6 hours away from each other) WOW is all i can say, i would recommend you contact Sam and listen, take notes, and follow his advice, its the best thing you can do for yourself. when he told me “if we are here and are not helping the public, then we are just doing for our-self, and that is not kosher” i knew i wanted him on my side.

He is a great guy, a good listener and full of good advice.
thanks Sam.

The day you need someone on your side…

Dealing with attorneys can sometimes feel like a trip to the dentist for a root canal without anesthesia! I spent a couple weeks reviewing attorney profiles, filtering through the masses hoping to find that perfect one. I needed direction on how to defeat a retaliation complaint (and fine) to the Board. I had almost lost hope, I prayed that God would lead me to the one person who could help. Then, late one evening I happened upon Sam Spital’s website. My heart began to race as I read his profile, testimonials and experience. I think I found my gem! I sent him an email, and within an hour I received a response!!! He moved fast, gave me a list of things to provide, and I hustled to get him the info. He called me and we had almost a 2 hours phone consult where he answered ALL my questions, concerns and helped me put things into prospective. He weighed all the pros and cons, explained how the process works, what I’d be up against vs what I should accept. I took everything Sam told me into careful consideration,and I asked a ton of questions. We covered extensive details specific to my situation, including some basics; attorney fees, personal cost, time, experience, allegations, fine vs court costs… he explained justice vs legal systems, HIPPA laws and subpoenas for my type of case. His dedication to people is extraordinary! I can’t thank Sam enough for the gems he handed me! I truly appreciated all his time and information he gave me! Literally…. FREE. He’s one of the most extraordinary attorneys I’ve met in my lifetime, and not that I’ve had that many, however, his honesty and straightforwardness, not only gave me food for thought, but helped really see things in a different prospective. I ended up not hiring Sam Spital, not for any other reason, but this fact; after his detailed information, and under his wisdom, moving forward wouldn’t be in my best interest, given my circumstances. He was more concerned for my outcome, than his own. This man truly loves his profession, and is devoted to helping those of us who are dedicated to our professions! If you’re in need of an Administrative Law Attorney, Sam Spital is the first and last call you need to make! “Thank you” doesn’t seem like enough, but just know, he made a huge difference for me!

Omg! Very knowledgeable and Caring

I called attorney Spital at 9pm a Saturday night to Ieave a voicemail for him to retrieve on Monday. However he answered the phone! I spoke with him for over an hour listening to the very informative information regarding my situation. After talking with him I feel empowered to continue my litigation with a WIN attitude. He gave me information on how to find a good lawyer and to utilize search engines to find the right attorney. In reviewing the attorney backgrounds I found no attorney that came close to Mr Spitals star rating, review rating, % of cases won or the time he commits to each case. Whoever hires him you are truly blessed as my case is not in his area of practice.

Time well spent

My case was not specific enough to Mr Spital’s law practice. But instead of politely dismissing himself and advise seaking another attorney, Mr. Spital spent a considerable amount of time with me, listening to my problem, asking questions, giving advice on how to locate an attorney specific to any case you may have, preventing me from making many more dead end calls. Mr Spital educated me on legal aspects of my problem making it much easier to discuss the problem with the next attorney. When finished with the call I felt I had made a friend. Mr. Spital provided advise, showed concern, knowing there was no monetary gain. If I have a legal problem more specific to Mr. Spidal, he will be my first call.

Nursing Board Accusation

Attorney Samuel Spital took time to review my case and let me know what I should expect from my current lawyer who was not as aggressive as I had hoped. He gave me direction, and validated my concerns. Its too late for me to change lawyers this late in the case, but thanks to Attorney Spital I now know what my current lawyer should be doing! I wish I had hired Attorney Spital in the beginning. It would have prevented so much misery with the other lawyers who are Trucks, taking as much of your money as possible, and not preparing for the administrative hearing.

Amazing Human Being

I called Samuel Spital late on a Friday night, as I was obsessing over my clinical supervisor’s abuse of power and his threats to “report me to the board” – for no apparent reason. Attorney Spital answered his phone and proceeded to answer my questions unhurriedly – with legal expertise and with the wisdom only a long & introspective life will bequeath. He was able to answer some key questions for me, as well as give me a condensed bird’s eye view of my situation, enabling me to address events now and a the next level. This person is a gentleman – but has a knowledge set and way about him that I feel he can seriously kick some arse when the need arises.

Sam Spital Actually Cares

I was presently surprised when Sam called me himself as a result of an internet inquiry and phone call. I was calling about an Administrative Action dealing with The California Department of Insurance. He actually reviewed all my documents and gave me more options than hire me before you lose all your rights. He was very friendly and seemed to actually care about my plight. I am a Combat Disabled Veteran (80%) and was in the Desert Storm Era and was awarded a combat action ribbon for my service in Mogadishu, Somalia. Sam actually thanked me for my service before I even told him who I was. This is why I knew he read all my documents because it was mentioned in the official responses from the DOI. I am going to explore the options which he recommended, which he spent about 30-40 minutes discussing with me on the phone. Sam showed ethical, moral and professionalism in the highest regard. I really appreciate what Sam has done for me and really appreciate the fact that he appreciates Veterans! I salute you Sam!

This Man is a Saint

Forget all the bad things you’ve heard about lawyers and check this out. This man took a blind call from me at 7:00 AM to discuss my options in dealing with the California Board of Registered Nursing, but even more than that, he provided a plan for me to resolve my legal issue whether I secured him as my lawyer or not. Additionally, he was supportive and injected hope into a situation that appeared bleak, to say the least. This man’s passion for what he does is never in doubt. He is a bulldog and I’m thankful I had the chance to speak with him. I cannot overstate my gratitude. Since I live in another state, it’s too early to know whether or not I will need his legal assistance in this matter, but he put me on a path to success no matter where I seek counsel. One thing is certain, if I ever needed counsel in California, I know to whom I would turn. Grateful in St. Louis.

Successful Resolution

After a single night of poor judgment I placed my professional license and reputation at peril and subject to the scrutiny of a licensing board. I retained the counsel of Attorney Spital and after a year of investigations and legal proceedings, he represented me before the licensing board. To this end he prepared an extraordinary mitigation package outlining my career and credentials and presented a cogent argument on my behalf. Within less than a week, the board dismissed the matter without consequence. I believe that his strategy to provide the board with thorough documentation on myself, my career, my accomplishments as well as on the mitigating circumstances related to the issue at hand facilitated the board’s decision to look no further into the case. I am grateful for his services and highly recommend him.

Honorable man

I called Mr. Spital’s office and left a message about my case in Virginia. I figured that I would just talk to a paralegal but no. Mr. Spital called me back personally out of his busy schedule and spoke with me free of charge and give me great advise. Even though he could not help fight my case. He helped me to know when I am wasting my time and money with a lawyer and showed me how to find a great lawyer. He also gave me the invitation to call him anytime if I had anymore concerns. Mr. Spital also called me back later on that evening to check on me and see how things were going. None of this was over a dollar amount. Mr. Spital’s words to me were “Its not about money here this is about one human being helping out another human being , that is what we are put on this earth for.”

Thanks Sam!

Sam is an incredibly helpful lawyer, who knowledge of dealing with complaints against your license. In the 10 years I have had my Landscaping Contractors License, we have never had a complaint filed against us. We are now dealing with a hostile client who is threatening and unreasonable. Sam has given me valuable advice, on his own time, to help me work through the situation to avoid going to the Attorney General. His advice is so valuable, and I appreciate that he took the time to help me avoid a legal battle. If we do indeed go into legal battle territory, I will call on Sam again to help me out of it, as I know he can do the job right.

Thank you Sam!

Thankful to have the best Lawyer

Anyone facing potential administrative discipline against their professional license faces stress and uncertainly like no other. From the moment I spoke to Sam, he assured me he was on my side and would do all he can to help my situation. I am very grateful to be working with Sam and Elizabeth. They are always available and respond to my many questions promptly. Since day one, he has proven he will do all he can to help my case and to go above and beyond. Thank you Sam and Elizabeth, I can’t tell you enough how much it mean to have you on my side. You truly are the best.

Exceptional Service!

Attorney Sam Spital and Attorney Elizabeth Brady were exceptional with handling my case. I currently possess a professional license; however, a poor lapse in judgment on my part late last year placed my license in jeopardy with the regulating Board. I was facing criminal charges for driving under the influence of alcohol; any conviction would require to be reported to the Board thereafter, which may result in the Board suspending or revoking my professional license. Losing my license could ultimately result in the loss of my employment, which would have been a financial hardship for my family and me, as well as created a more challenging position for me to seek employment elsewhere.

After conducting extensive research online, I sought the assistance and services of Spital and Associates, and was immediately confident that they would be able to provide the legal assistance needed in my case, based on numerous positive reviews that have been provided by their previous clients. Attorney Sam contacted me soon after I had submitted my inquiries online, and provided me with information regarding the legal process, as well as their past experience with defending a client who also possessed a license with the same regulating Board. Attorney Sam indicated that winning the case was not guaranteed, but he and his firm promised to strive in order to provide superior and dedicated service to obtain favorable results. After working with Attorney Elizabeth and Attorney Sam for a few months on my case, and upon submission of the documentation regarding my incident, the regulating Board informed me that they have decided not to pursue a Disciplinary Action on me, and that my license would not be affected by my previous actions.

I am extremely grateful for the assistance that Spital and Associates provided, and would highly recommend this legal firm to any professional who may be faced with the possibility of losing one’s professional license. Without the help of Spital and Associates, I would not have been able to retain my professional license, my employment, and my livelihood. Thank you again, Attorney Sam and Attorney Elizabeth.

Hire THE BEST!!

I highly recommend Mr. Spital for any nurse seeking expert counsel and legal representation, regardless of how big or small you think the accusations made against you are. As a registered nurse (RN) for the past 16 years, I received an accusation from the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) for the first time in my career. Under misguided advice from other RN colleagues, I did not seek legal representation immediately. Additionally, the documents provided by the BRN led me to believe the hearing did not require legal representation, as stipulated in their clause “may or may not need legal representation.”. Therefore, I thought at the hearing, I could share my side of the story with the judge and he/she would see why I believe there was a standing order to perform a Foley catheter on an immobile hospice patient for comfort and prevention of skin breakdown for end of life comfort, as initially oriented by hospice RN. This was the biggest MISTAKE I could have ever made. No matter how big or small you believe your accusations are, please seek legal counsel immediately. If you receive any documents from the BRN, I suggest that you giving Mr. Spital a call STAT. You will need the time for him to properly represent you. I called Mr. Spital on a Saturday morning and received a call back within 30 minutes. He even took time out of his Sunday schedule to provide additional advice. In addition, he provided pro-bono counsel all weekend and helped me navigate my discussions with the BRN deputy attorney. Because of Mr. Spital, I was able to understand my rights as a RN and my options. He provided countless hours of advice to help me with questions after questions as I was extremely uneducated in the ways of law. Without Mr. Spital’s advice and the help of God, I could not get through this difficult time in my life. Unfortunately, since my hearing was three weeks away from my initial contact with Mr. Spital, he could not represent me. However, his patience, responsiveness and expertise in this field leads me to believe that he is the best lawyer for this type of case against nurses from the BRN. I’ve interviewed at least three other attorneys, none of which come close to the valuable of service that Mr. Spital has provided. As the saying goes, “you get for what you pay for “. Do not hesitate to get legal representation from the best since your license deserves nothing but the best!!!

Good advice

Within a few seconds of our initial phone interview, Mr Spital made all the difference in my feeling about my upcoming hearing and offered other great alternatives to the probation terms that the RCP board was offering me. Very smart, quick witted,and proactive in his advice and assistance. Nuff said!

Advice when I didn’t know where to turn

I called Mr. Spital after researching and finding his name online. Our case? A contractor taking a sizeable deposit for parts, then failing to do any work or produce parts. I wanted to know if I had a suit and how to efficiently handle my problem. He answered the phone himself. After a brief conversation he recommended I file in Small Claims Court and also file charges with the District Attorney. He could easily have had me come to his office and charged me $$$ to tell me just that, but he saved my time and his, and my money. I will definitely call him again if need be.

a real mench

Sam spent more than an hour on the phone with me. This was a cold call on a case that he knew he was not going to be able to take. His genuine concern and helpful information were so appreciated at the time because he not only freely imparted his knowledge(he does talk fast) but his encouragement as well. This was as important to me as anything else when most people can barely hear half the nightmare I’ve endured for nearly 3 years before cutting me off and dispassionately wishing good luck (and farewell). Thank You SAM!

BRN

Back in February I had a positive drug test. Sam gave me some helpful information over the phone. We talked almost everyday for about 2 weeks. I was fortunate enough that my test was mislabeled and did not have to take this to trial. Sam talks fast but is very knowledgable with the BRN. Sam would be the only person I would recommend for taking on the Board of Registered Nursing.

One of a kind !

It is not everyday that one finds themselves fighting for their livelihood. It is a very unnerving process to say the least. When I found Sam, I was very skeptical. I felt he was most likely going to be “the typical attorney.” I found out very quickly I was wrong! Sam is anything but typical! There are truly not enough adjectives to describe him! I could verbalize all day long how intelligent, hardworking, dedicated, and empathetic he is, yet still this would not do him justice! Every claim made prior to mine about this man is very accurate. Sam Spital is truly a remarkable man, and spectacular attorney. It was such a blessing to find him. You will get the very best representation from Sam because he will settle for nothing less! Equally important is his impressive background. If you want peace of mind and the satisfaction of knowing that you have the very best; stop here, because you have found your man…without a doubt.

Medical Board Representation

Dear Colleagues,

I must say that I wish there was an option for more than five stars….

I am an Orange County medical doctor and in situations that most doctors, fortunately, are unfamiliar, we need a man who makes it his mission to set the record straight, identify holes in the accusation(s), and identify strengths in our armor. Sam Spital has the grit, knowledge, and comprehensive understanding of the law that is needed.

I would surmise that regardless of the profession, there is not a person more on top of his or her game when it comes to the representation of professionals before licensing board than Sam Spital. The unfortunate reality is that the boards that govern our practice have at their disposal virtually unlimited ammunition and financial backing to seek remedies for issues that come before them. The medical board presumes that an accusation before them demands a punishment, or, at best, a compromise. In other words, we are at risk of being condemned, or our good names muddied, even without fair process. Sam Spital is a man who levels the playing field and gives a voice to those of us who want only to do well and serve.

Recently, I experienced a scare working with a county agency. I called Mr. Spital, who was snap to respond to my email inquiry, get me on the phone, and bring about calm and reassurance. For the next 8 hours I walked with more confidence. At the end of the day, I had learned that my fear about a medical board inquiry was unnecessary and that indeed I had nothing to answer to. Those 8 hours were far more comfortable because of this man.

Had I to face a medical board inquiry, I would want to do it with no one other than this man in my corner. I would, if given the opportunity to recommend anyone to a colleague, look no further than this gentleman, Sam Spital. I wish you nothing but the best Sir…I am in your debt. Dr. C.

The best legal team for nursing cases

Sam is the Best Criminal and License Attorney in California.
The State Board opened a case against me. But, after retaining Sam Spital, who prepared a comprehensive and superb legal compilation, the investigation was closed without merit. I am thrilled with the superior knowledge and huge success of Sam and his legal team in representing clients, and particularly the outstanding and unequalled result he got for me. Sam’s advice was priceless. I highly recommend him to anyone with a criminal case and/or California professional license. I would not use any other attorney and know I can always rely on Sam being there 150%.

Consultation, very much appreciated

I cannot state how much I appreciated Mr. Spital spending his time in my consultation. He was absolutely wonderful. He assessed my issue, and was attentive, honest, and most importantly in my case, extremely reassuring. This reassurance was probably what I needed the most, and I can’t tell him how much it really meant to me. I have kept all his information, and will be more than willing to refer my other physician colleagues. All the great reviews that you have seen are clearly justified. Thank you again Mr. Spital!

Sam Spital is the Best Attorney in California, period.

Although Attorney Spital has an office in San Diego, he has handled my Los Angeles criminal case in the most admirable and positive ways imaginable. I retained Sam Spital, Lawyer and he was very helpful at all hours of the day (even at the wee hours of night) and weekend over many months on the process and options I had available. I highly recommend Attorney Spital to anyone with a criminal, professional or occupational license case because of his in-depth knowledge, years of experience, and numerous huge successes in representing his clients. I can certainly attest to his superior legal expertise, as he has represented my case and defended me in my case.

My case was handled admirably and resulted in a judgment that is very favorable for my end. This kind of success is all due to the prudent legal advice of Attorney Spital, his wise counsel, hard-working diligence, thoroughness to every detail, as well as his wealth of knowledge and experience in handling cases such as mine. Moreover, the attorney fees were more than reasonable given the volume of work he and his forensic experts produced and ultimately the incomparable results.

I sincerely want to thank you Sam and the hard work, diligence, and thoroughness of your office. It is with my great honor to write a very favorable testimonial. I am very confident in attesting that no one could have obtained the remarkable outcome as Attorney Sam Spital did on my behalf; he did not promise more than he could achieve, and more importantly he delivered far greater than I could have hoped and dreamed. Sam is truly the greatest lawyer you could ever have and I will forever be grateful for what he did on my behalf. Bless your office, Sam, and may you long serve your fellow man.

I highly recommend Sam Spital and Elizabeth Brady to anyone who is dealing with administrative law issues. Both Sam and Elizabeth are exceptionally knowledgeable about all of the complicated and often frustrating issues one deals with when faced with problems in medical board licensing.

INCOMPARABLE ATTORNEY. I contacted and retained Sam Spital to handle a State investigation against me.

If you want a lawyer you can rely upon and is always available, you should hire Sam, who is always working, no matter what time or what day I called or emailed him, Sam personally returned every single call and email immediately. I highly recommend SAM if you are involved in ANYINVESTIGATION OR CHARGES BROUGHT AGAUINST YOU.

Hire Sam Spital

I made a mistake. I knew what I had done was wrong and I was sorry for it. I also knew I had to accept the BRN’s choice to investigate the incident, but I was not ready to simply accept punishment without my day in court. I admitted to the mistake but I work hard at what I do, help a lot of people and I wanted them to know I’m a good person who deserves to remain in practice.

I feel that it would have been crazy to attempt this on my own. I was ignorant to my rights and the legal system and I needed a specialist. I wouldn’t hired a general medical practitioner to perform my heart surgery and I was not going to hire a general practitioner of law to defend my livelihood. Sam Spital had the kind of experience I needed. He helped me put together a strong legal declaration, and although I did not deny the offense, I showed remorse and was able to offer the kind of mitigating facts that Sam knew would be important.

The results speak for them self “after due consideration we have closed the complaint, finding that there is not reasonable cause to warrant further action…” I truly believe that if I had not gotten representation I would not have my license today. Hire Sam Spital!

I found Mr. Spital via Google. I explained to him that we do not live in CA but MIGHT need representation there.

I found him to be knowledgeable, confident, patient, and perhaps most of all, respectful. He answered my questions and gave me great legal advice. If he treats “call-in’s” who owe him nothing that well, I suspect he does a fantastic job for his “paying” clients!

Fantastic lawyer and person!

Sam is an amazing lawyer and person! Sam answered my calls 24/7 with a compassion that was amazing. Don’t hesitate due to any geographic challenges, as I always felt as if Sam was right there for me at any time.

While holding a position as an RN Case Manager and nationally certified wound care nurse I made one error that nearly cost me my 33 year career. I had been fighting the Accusation without legal counsel for one year and was quickly losing ground with the BRN. I saw the writing on the wall and initially called Sam to help me surrender my RN license to the BRN.

Sam immediately gave me hope to continue to fight for my license. Even though I had been emotionally beaten down by the BRN, he helped me to continue to fight when I no longer had the energy.

Sam and his Associate Elizabeth Brady saved my license and I am working without probation or restrictions of any kind in a position of higher responsibility than before the Accusation. Sam focused on offense while also presenting a powerful legal defense. He put in place the right team of distinguished specialists, highly regarded forensic experts, and key witnesses in order to make a powerful presentation. The results were spectacular and there was no actual trial or hearing. He clearly is an experienced, energetic and highly talented lawyer.

An Advocate for the Cause

As a new nursing graduate with an unfortunate, disputable incident in my past, I was grossly unprepared for the obstacles the BRN hurdeled my way once the official application for licensure process began.

Mr. Spital was able to step in and provide efficient, professional, and reliable legal assistance in navigating through the licensure process obstacles while maintaining open, clear communication and striving for an acceptable outcome.

In my line of business there are a lot of sharks and you have protect yourself. When I went on the search for an attorney It was really difficult..who could I trust? Not knowing the quality of his reputation in the greater San Diego Area, I called 5-6 attorneys who were referred to me and I didn’t feel comfortable with any. The moment I called Sam , I knew I was in the right hands. Have been with him for a year now and have full confidence in him. Sam has pulled me out of some pretty unsettling situations UNSCATHED. He knows those little life and death details that are so often missed by even the most accredited of “professionals”. Sam always presents my options, his recommendation and then all of the remote but important circumstances that may arise in NO-BS fashion. When Im feeling uncertain about the future, I call Sam Spital. Truly one of americas finest. Sam YOU ARE THE MAN!

Potential Client review

Spital & Associates were my choice when I needed assistance on a real estate transaction. Unfortunately, I did not call them until the transaction was final. In hindsight I should have called prior to putting ink on any documents used to purchase a residential property with a partner. The firm’s responsiveness was incredible and coupled with the quality of service I received, I highly recommend Spital & Associates. They provided very compelling advice and assistance during a time that I found myself unable to objectively view the problem let alone come up with any solutions. Even Stan himself is very down to earth and takes a “hands on” approach providing high quality fast responses.

Losing was not an option for Sam! He worked tirelessly, even at night and on weekends. Sam developed a winning offense as well as defense strategy. I received frequent updates and I was always aware of every step in his presentation. I recommend you call Sam if you cannot afford to lose. harmit

Superior Work Superb Ethics

*****SUPERIOR WORK SUPERB ETHICS I know now what is it to be accused of negligence. I’ve been a nurse for many years and considered myself a very good professional. One day everything changed. If you are in the same situation I was, you need to find a good lawyer. Guilt, shame, uncertainly about future, tons of thoughts were racing through my head. Don’t let yourself down more than you already are. Even if you are a very good nurse, you need to show it to the BRN. Samuel Spital and Elizabeth Brady are the people you can trust. They are great professionals with superb work ethics.

You will have all your questions answered. They outline the whole process for you right from the start: what you have to do, how much it will cost you, what you can expect in the future. They are available 24/7. I searched a lot of websites before I found Samuel Spital. I am writing this review because I want good RNs to stay in practice. Good luck.

SUPERB CALIFORNIA MEDICAL BOARD (MBC) DEFENSE ATTORNEYS

I reside in Canada and practice as a licensed physician. A short time ago, I sought legal advice from SAM SPITAL & ASSOCIATES to obtain a medical doctor license in California in which I had a pending offer for a Fellowship at a renowned California University Medical Center.

Sam and his team demonstrated their vast knowledge of the MBC, were available 24/7 to respond and answer my questions, and they were extremely helpful as well as supportive. If you are a physician or know one that either wants to obtain or has a California license, you should retain Sam Spital if you want your case to be done right the first time. Do not gamble on the outcome &/or the delay from another lawyer. I will always call Sam for any legal questions I have as a physician. Nina S, M.D. Canada

An Excellent, Honest and Sincere Attorney.

I contacted Sam via email for help with a licensing matter for a friend. He called me within 45 minutes of me sending that email, and left a voicemail message with a follow up email. I called him back and he immediately took my call. After just a few minutes of speaking with him there was no doubt in my mind that this attorney is very knowledgeable, but even more importantly, very sincere in his desire to help people in need of assistance in these matters, even if they are not a client. The amount of time he spent on the phone with me, a non-client I would have never expected. Most attorneys would charge for that amount of time, but not Sam. This truely shows his desire to help people because it is the right thing to do, regardless of whether they become a client or not. He is truely a sincere advocate for his clients. If you need assistance in an Administrative Law issue, look no further, Sam is the attorney for you.

Great lawyer!

AN EXPERT ATTORNEY WHO GETS IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
Sam Spital is devoted to the legal profession and you can be sure he will treat you fairly and provide objective advice with passion. He puts his clients first, and even when you are not a client he is there to help. In my case, I called him for legal advice, he spent a great deal of time, but I chose another lawyer to save money.
> Later, when there was a problem with the advice I received from the Other lawyer, Sam still spent time talking to me and offering many alternatives, none of which meant he would receive an attorney’s fee. Can you imagine talking to a lawyer after you did not hire him and he still provided free advice?

An amazing outcome!

While holding a position as an RN Case Manager and nationally certified wound care nurse I made one error that nearly cost me my 33 year career. I had been fighting the Accusation without legal counsel for one year and was quickly losing ground with the BRN. I saw the writing on the wall and called Sam to help me surrender my license.

Sam immediately gave me hope and energy to continue the fight. He and his Associate Elizabeth Brady saved my license and I am working without restrictions of any kind in a position of higher responsibility than before the Accusation. Sam focused on offense while also presenting a powerful legal defense. He put in place the right team of distinguished specialists, highly regarded forensic experts, and key witnesses in order to make a powerful presentation. The results were spectacular and there was no actual trial or hearing. He clearly is an experienced, energetic and highly talented lawyer.

Living hundreds of miles was not a concern and I had the sense that Sam was right here in town. He answered my calls 24/7 and with a compassion that was amazing. He truly cared about me personally and is an amazing lawyer and person.

THANK U SAM !!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I got received an investigation letter from the State Board, I was really worried. I browsed the internet for the best lawyer /counsel to help me deal with the State, and found Mr. Sam Spital… I remember it was Sunday early morning 8am that I called him. I was amazed he personally picked up my call. From then on Sam was always there to help me deal with my biggest fear and stressor (professional State license investigation ).

Sam is very reliable, genuine, trustworthy and a perfectionist in his work. He treated me like a friend. I feel so blessed that I had the chance to work with him. All I can say is to “trust Sam with all your heart, follow all of his instructions and for sure you will have the optimum best results.”

Thank you Sam. Words cannot express how I feel so fortunate to have had you on my side during those days when I initially felt I should just give up. You are the best and truly remarkable man. “ 2 thumbs up Sam.” Thank you for everything! Now I can sleep better and know my license is not in jeopardy because finally my case was closed with no further action from the State licensing Board. You are truly heaven sent, SAM . 🙂

Atty Samuel Spital , a Lawyer that can make a difference in your life, someone you can trust

With my previous bad representation I had with another Lawyer, I find it hard for me to decide which of the Lawyers that I had called and talked to, is the right one, but with Atty Samuel Spital, I had a gut feeling that “HE” is the right Lawyer for my case. He is very professional, honest, caring , considerate and a lot more qualities that any clients would like their Lawyer to possess. He always find time from his busy schedule to answer your calls and talk to you. He makes you feel comfortable, secured and a part of the team while trying to work and plan for the best legal representation for your case. He does not waste any time.

Atty Samuel Spital went beyond his call of duty for my case and had given me the “BEST LEGAL REPRESENTATION SERVICE” that no money can buy. He made a difference in my life and with the experience I had with him as my Lawyer , I honestly believe that he will make a difference on the life of any clients he will have!

A friend in need…

My wife called Sam Spital during a time of great legal stress. She couldn’t speak, asking that I explain our need to Sam. He spoke with us by phone for a very long time, first with me, then with kindness and genuine concern with my wife.

Sam determined that our case would best be served by another attorney, because of legal details, and recommended several for us. Nonetheless, he continued to help us in many ways. Even after my wife did select another attorney, as Sam recommended, he called several times to ask about our welfare. He has encouraged us to keep him up on the progress of our case.

Sam’s caring and knowledgeable help to my wife and I has been absolutely beyond belief. Thank you, Sam.

Sam Spital…Simply THE BEST!

Spital and Associates handled my case in which I was being threatened for breach of contract, negligence and collusion to cause harm to a business from a prior employer. Sam Spital and his Associate, Elizabeth literally dissected the plaintiffs case and proved, point by point, how their pending lawsuit would have been frivolous, held no merit and could possibly have been grounds for the plaintiff’s attorney to be reprimanded and possibly disbarred. Needless to say, nothing ever transpired from my prior employer and I never heard from their so called “lawyer” again. Sam is easy to speak to and always available and I recommend his service

Kudos to Sam Spital

We are a national low voltage electrical contractor licensed in California, with our corporate office in Washington State. We found ourselves before the CSLB in violation of certain Professional Codes. After comprehensive research we hired Sam Spital to represent our company.

Sam brought to the table extensive knowledge and skills in criminal law as well as administrative law. He obtained an unprecedented result “withdrawal of all accusations” filed by the CSLB.

We never had the pleasure of meeting Sam in person. Our entire case was handled by telephone and e-mail correspondence from Washington. We had to develop a trust relationship from the beginning. This trust was well placed.

Sam provided across the board legal consultation timely and effectively. Due to Sam’s efforts our business in California was never disrupted.

I was very fortunate to have found Sam Spital and Associates.

Client Review

It is important to emphasize how poor the quality of our life would be if my husband and I had not retained Samuel Spital and Associates. In this case, which was a litigation matter, Sam was successful in presenting a compelling and powerful defense. Due to the strategy used by Sam, the case resulted in a pay out of 30 cents on the dollar. He was persistent and knew that we were in a strapped financial position, which meant that literally, every penny counted. Essentially, the fees we paid to Sam came directly from the dollars he saved us (and then some.) There is no doubt that we would have paid double or triple the cost had we retained any other attorney(s). This was also a very stressful matter for us and Sam handled it with the compassion and true understanding that we needed. To say that we are very, very pleased with the outcome of our case is an understatement. This goes hand-in-hand with the fact that we would hire Sam again and refer him to our friends and colleagues.

Attorney for state licensing issue

I was desperate to find an excellent attorney to assist me with a CA Board licensing issue. I was contacted by an investigator and did not know which way to turn, what do do, or how to do it. I contacted several attorneys, but when I contacted Sam, I knew I had the right person to help me.

Sam was always available, as was Elizabeth who worked on my case personally. They gave me sound advice that I never would have known on my own. Sam and Elizabeth stayed in touch with me almost daily, helping me to stay focused and positive.

To make the long story short, the board has dropped the investigation, and my license is no longer in jeopardy, due to the advice and direction I was given by Sam and Elizabeth. I would recommend Sam to anyone that has a professional license issue. He knows his stuff!

For those who are serious about getting a second chance, Sam is your answer!

I am one of many, many people who have survived a licensure issue with one of the boards of California because of Sam Spital & Associates’ amazing ability to provide a defense beyond what you expect. In fact, I am one of the very fortunate clients to have my case completely withdrawn (mine was with the Board of Pharmacy) due to Sam’s incredible work! The experience behind his firm is unmatched. As everyone else has mentioned, you can contact him almost any time of the day, any day of the week and you will get your response right away. The litigation brief that was prepared on my behalf was so unbelievable that I felt like I had a second chance already. Seriously, for those considering hiring a cheaper lawyer should reconsider because hiring Sam Spital is like getting insurance for your future and essentially your life. I would guarantee that Sam Spital would give you the very best outcome out of any possible situation. I am just one of many examples of his awesome work! The investment is worth every penny, hands down!

Sam sets the bar. Sam’s nothing short of a miracle!

Sam Spital’s acumen with the administrative court system in California is priceless. Before ever meeting with Sam, I was impressed with his background as a former Attorney General and now defense council in an area specific to my needs. His extraordinary experience and exceptional skills separate him from virtually any other lawyer in his specialty. Sam lives and breaths the protocols involved with professional licensure boards as well as the California Courts. I can’t convey enough gratitude to Sam for accelerating my licensure and keeping my case from having to go through the arduous, formal hearing process. At the same time, I knew that if I did require a hearing, I had the most assertive and knowledgeable lawyer as my ally. Sam saved me many months of headache, lost wages, and other fees. Without Sam, I would not have been able to create the mitigation package that compelled the board to issue my license. In fact, Sam helped me achieve more than I had originally expected. This is Sam’s specialty: nipping it at the bud by directly addressing the board’s issues and keeping things out of court for a fast settlement.

Sam, made a stressful process more relaxed, giving me a tremendous amount of confidence that we would achieve our outcome. He knew exactly how to address the board’s concerns with maximum efficiency. Together, he and I mapped out a plan of action. He executed flawlessly on his end while keeping me in good spirits and on task on mine. We were a true team. Through it all, Sam communicated thoroughly and compassionately. Truly caring about his clients, he made himself available according to my busy schedule. Sam always returned my calls and emails with surprisingly fast turn-around, including late evenings. I always dealt with Sam directly, no messing around with secretaries and assistants. As personal as his support and services are, Sam is a 21st Century professional who effectively uses technology to operate remotely; we were at opposite ends of the State.

In sum, Sam’s nothing short of a miracle worker who more than earns his fee. I couldn’t be happier with our results. He’s my go-to-guy for all things legal from here on out. Sam Spital receives my highest recommendation. Thank you, Sam!

Sam’s Administrative Law Advice and Representation Was Priceless!

I found Sam Spital on the internet. I phone interviewed three attorneys, their fees were comprable and they all seemed qualified to handle my case. After speaking with Sam, I felt he would be the strongest fighter for me and really cared about the outcome I wanted. Sam handled my Real Estate Broker license administrative complaint amazingly well.

We had some trust account issues and operational issues during an audit and the DRE wanted to revoke my Broker license forever. Sam took the case, worked with me to prepare my case and then presented it to the DRE attorney. Sam saved my license and minimized the disiplinary fines and actions that DRE placed on me. In two years I am back to full Broker status again and my company continues to operate.

Sam was quick to respond, personally answered almost every call I made to him. Kept me informed through each step of the process. Cared about my results and became a good friend over the phone, through email and fax. He is in San Diego and my case was in Los Angeles, but the distance made no difference for the case. We did it all by email, fed ex, fax, and phone.

His Administrative Law advice and representation was priceless!! I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with a State Board License issue or administrative hearing.

Thanks Sam!!

From the moment he opens his mouth…..

You can tell that Sam is truly in it for the love of helping people. At 10 PM one night, after many frustrating days of my own research on my legal matter and just feeling a little overwhelmed, I ran a search for a 24 hour real estate attorney helpline. Sam’s site was the first one I saw. I dialed the number, not exactly sure what to expect on the other end of the line. After a few minutes of confusing the poor guy rambling on about my problem, he almost intuitively began telling me exactly what I needed to do. As corny as it sounds, it was like he knew exactly what I was going through at the time and I hung up the phone with not only a sense of relief but also a feeling of excitement and renewed vigor for pursuing my legal matter. I now have his number saved in my phone and fully intend on passing it along to everyone I know. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Sam.

A most excellent attorney!

Samuel E. Spital is the most competent and honorable attorney to ever make my acquaintance. He loves the law and is extremely generous with his legal knowledge. Most importantly, he has a genuine concern for the overall well being of his clients and will not participate in a legal action that he believes is not in their best interest. I have consulted with him three times now and each time he has talked me out of filing a lawsuit and then refused any compensation for his time. Considering legal action is a frightening thing and picking an attorney out of the phone book is a daunting task. Do yourself a favor and give Samuel E. Spital a call. Respectfully, William M. Rich

helpful

Four years ago I ran into some trouble with the law and received a DUI. Not sure what to do, I found a lawyer to help me. I selected SAM SPITAL since I remembered his name from living in San Diego before. I called his number on a Sunday afternoon and got a call back that same day. I didn’t think lawyers worked on the weekend, but lucky for me Sam did. He took the time to listen and give advice on my case. He also wanted to help me “help myself,” so not to repeat the same thing over! Sam connected me with the right people and I got back on the right path. He guided me though the criminal process and answered all my questions. I am doing much better today and making better choices. Thanks for your help Sam.” T. Towey.

You Need This Lawyer! Without Sam Spital, you may not do as well with your case! You have a chance to turn your case around!

1. Sam Spital was easy to find on the internet and was also easy to contact.
2. Sam Spital’s return call was almost immediate and it was handled by him personally, not a law clerk or associate!
3. Sam Spital listened to what I had to say. He offered his support and assured me that he could help me with my case.4. Sam Spital sent the necessary paperwork for me to retain his law firm, immediately; I did not have to wait. My case was not reviewed by a law clerk before being turned over to the lawyer. At this law firm, I got to speak to the head lawyer right from the start! Sam Spital began working on my case from the very first time I called him. I received daily emails and updates and was always kept in the loop. I never felt like I had to chase anyone down to find out about my case. 5.If I needed something explained to me, it was done to my understanding and satisfaction. All deadlines were met on time for papers to be filed. 6. I was given a discount after Sam won!

our outcome without him.

Be prepared for Sam to tell it to you like it is. If you like that (and we certainly
did), and if you want someone who knows what he is talking about, this is the lawyer for
you. Joan Pastor Thompson, PhD, Licensed Psychologist PSY 21808, and John Thompson, MBA.”

San Diego’s Authentic Numero Uno Attorney !

I was rear-ended by a delivery van driver while sitting at a stop light and hurt my right knee on the gearshift column. I knew it was bad, but not how bad at the time. I knew I needed some professional legal advice to see what my options were.
For some reason my memory took me back to the late 70’s/early 80’s of a commercial that use to play on TV about the Law Offices of Sam Spital. I did a quick “Yahoo” search on the Internet and found he had a nice web page. Without hesitation I gave his office a call that night. He returned my call promptly, and right away I felt I was in good hands.
His first and foremost concern was my injuries. Everyone he referred me to from the excellent orthopedic surgeon who performed two surgeries, on down to the rehab therapists who helped strengthen the knee back up, were GREAT people to get to know.
Sam Spital was able to take a negative occurrence and turned it into a positive experience for me. Through it all, Sam Spital became a friend of mine and family. He even went WAY above and beyond by helping me land a good job when I was recovered and ready to return to work. Now that’s a unique attorney! If you need an experience qualified attorney, I totally recommend Mr. Sam Spital. He’s been doing this for a long time, and it’s very apparent in the end result.
Respectfully,

Best Lawyer in Town

I can not put into words how comfortable I was, while working with Sam. He was very knowledgeable in all aspects of law. He was able to
answer all my questions with a very fast turn around time. Sam always made himself available to me anytime I had questions and made sure I was informed of all issues during the entire process. Simply put, Sam is an excellent Lawyer.
If you are looking for a caring, honest, or professional lawyer, I would
recommend SAMUEL SPITAL to anybody.

Fabulous!!!

Sam sat down with me in an initial consultation and worked through and solved a number of technical issues that I couldn’t have done without him. Also, he helped me think about the legal aspects of what I needed to do and consider before filing a lawsuit against a very large company for stalking and harrassment.
Because of how close I was to the situation, without his guidance through the information and without his thoughts on what to expect from a legal perspective, I wouldn’t have been able to effectively do this kind of assessment on my own.
From my experience, he is trustworthy and honest. But above all, he provided insight and experience where most lawyers would not have been as up front.

Trustworthy Lawyer

From the first day that I contacted Sam, I found a professional and articulate communicator who delivered exceptional results. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and made himself available anytime for my phone calls. His expertise and negotiating ability delivered the desired result without the need for lengthy litigation. He is a true expert and assisted me through some very difficult career issues. I plan on using Sam’s services in the future should the need arise. I highly recommend him to all prospectice clients. Simply put, I found a SAMUEL SPITAL to be a man at the zenith of his professional skills and pinnacle of personal achievement sharing it all with others.

Bring a BIG GUN to the game…

Spital & Associates has performed flawlessly. Sam and his entire team put forth the type of effort I wanted but never expected to get.
I am on the opposite coast and to have this quality of representation
with only phone and e-mail communication is a grace filled surprise.
Whenever I require legal assistance in this region I will always go to
Sam and his team. They have worked tirelessly, not only on my primary
goal, but on an ancillary issue that arose as part of discovery.
I will not hesitate to recommend Spital & Associates and let prospective clients know that their issue will receive the highest priority and will not be left until they request action, as has happened in so many other business dealings.
Sam has always kept me informed and I continue to be impressed with
his professionalism and knowledge.

Outstanding Lawyer

Sam is an excellent lawyer. He has the ability to listen and be diplomatic, and he has the ability to be aggressive and really go to bat for you, and both are critical. My husband and I also found Sam to be very responsive, to be extremely knowledgeable, to be honest when he was not sure about certain information (equally important- we find a lot of lawyers give wrong and bad advice), and to be very caring. You also have to be willing to have a straightshooter- he will tell you like it is. My husband and I only wish that we had found Sam much much sooner.

Highly recommended

I can’t say enough good things about Sam. He was very knowledgeable in terms of the legal aspects of my case. In addition, and very important for me, he was so supportive and I truly felt I had a very talented lawyer “in my corner”. Any questions I had seemed to be answered immediately and fully. I had never had to work with a lawyer before, and was quite intimidated. Sam was the one who personally answered my first email and I felt a huge sigh of relief after the first phone conversation. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone who is in need of a caring lawyer.
