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.
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.
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.
Back in June of 2018, I visited this law office to help me with a restraining order. That’s when I met Mr. Sperling, Lauren McAllister and Steve Shore who are tough professionals and very observant lawyers that take the time to help and assist you as well as come up with the best possible plan and strategy for your particular legal troubles.
McAllister has a comforting presence and impresses with her quick organizational skills and legal knowledge in meetings; Mr. Sperling makes sure you leave their offices with more hope and fewer worries. I highly recommend for everyone to check this law firm out. Everyone employed at this firm is very capable and kind from top to bottom.
Even the delightful paralegal Carolyn Shahverdians is absolutely committed to giving you the best and most comfortable experience possible, either when you’re visiting their offices, or during her quick email correspondence. Big thumbs up. I would definitely come back to them.
Lauren can WRITE. She is knowledgeable and able to explain complicated things in simple ways so that anyone can understand. She speaks, acts, and dresses professionally. She’s honest enough to tell you when it’s worth it to go to court–and when it’s NOT. And did I mention she can write letters that will make your head spin?
Lauren wrote a letter on our behalf (on her day off, I might add) and had it to us within a few hours. The letter sounded both professional and serious. She spelled out exactly what the recipient needed to do to cooperate. And after he did it, Lauren walked us through our options, whether we wanted to actually pursue him or not, and the pros and cons of each. If you want someone to communicate on your behalf in a way that will make you sound professional but also deadly serious, Lauren is your lawyer. She cares about you and your case, and she puts her best effort into everything she does–and it shows.
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.
