I’ve had a positive experience with Sperling Law Firm. I felt supported by everyone on the team during my move-away case, especially Lauren.
They not only got me the outcome I hoped for they were conscious of my budget and were able to help me avoid going to trial as Lauren negotiated a deal with my co-parent and we came to a mutual agreed upon resolution! Also, Caroline was patient with me and didn’t mind me calling regularly for update. Our family will be forever grateful.
The team at Sperling did a tremendous job explaining everything related to my case and making sure I was informed and understood everything, from start to finish. They were well prepared and knowledgeable + very generous with their time, going above & beyond what was necessary – better than anything I have previously experienced with a lawyer/law firm. Would highly recommend.
I do not write reviews, but I would be doing The Sperling Law Firm, and myself a true discredit if I didn’t express my appreciation for their entire dedication and patience when it came to my case. It was difficult for me to fully entrust another person who would be affecting the rest of my life.
I almost lost hope in my custody and visitation battle for my 10yr old. Then, a good old friend, recommended Aree Diarian. From the moment I met with Aree, Lauren, and Mitch, confidence replaced lost hope. I was never steered in the wrong direction. They achieved immediate results on most issues, and were kind enough to remain in my budget while still treating my case with utmost importance, a luxury most legal representatives do not provide. Not only did Aree and Lauren, take the time to explain every step of the process in great detail, Caroline always kept me updated on EVERYTHING. It felt like friends who had a personal stake in my outcome and were on my side! My son and I, are forever grateful.
I hired Lauren McAllister and Aree Diarian of Sperling Law Firm to represent me in my divorce. They have been exceptional. I never felt I was nickel and dimed. I felt as though I was their only client (though I knew they had others.) Most importantly to me they were compassionate to my situation. They are very kind but also tough when they need to be. They are supported by the rest of the legal team at Sperling Law who were always up to speed with my case. I could not recommend Lauren McAllister, Aree Diarian and Sperling Law Firm enough.
Okay, so I’ve been through a bunch of lawyers, for different reasons, over the past 25 years. Hopefully, my review will help you gain some insight to the process, and understand why this law firm is different from others out there. First, these lawyers and their staff truly care about how you feel. That’s very unique in a single lawyer, much less in a firm. They are the most philanthropic firm I’ve seen, and I’ve seen them do volunteer work and pro-bono/reduced rate work. They were very available to me, and I never felt brushed-off or uncared for. The firm has grown since I’ve been involved, and the entire staff has been amazing… They don’t take an unnecessary number of cases, leaving them time to personally take care of your case. I always had (reasonably) quick access to these attorneys and staff…
This firm has a long history (and reputation, according to my friends that are lawyers) of being big-dogs in the courtroom (and out). They are powerhouses, and they are respected by the judges. This is a BIG deal when you’re in the seat in front of the judge.
