  • Spencer has provided employment law counsel and group training for one of my major clients. His advice is accurate and pertinent to the issues faced. He not only answers the questions asked, but also the unasked questions that should have been asked. In the group training environment, his presentations are clear and understandable, even to those new to the concepts being taught. He adapts content for the group, making the topics discussed applicable and not just theoretical. I highly recommend Spencer as an expert resource in any area of employment law.

  • I would highly recommend using Spencer for any employment questions or legal advice. He is very personable, honest, knowledgable, and dedicated to solving your issues. He has given the Dyslexia Center of Utah great legal advice every time we have retained him. Spencer's analytical ability and years of experience enable him to provide thoughtful, thorough, and, most importantly, practical legal advice regarding a wide variety of employee law issues. He listens carefully to client questions and comments and he responds quickly and clearly with advice aimed directly at the issue. Spencer is at the top of his game and offers a vast wealth of substantive knowledge and experience, I have found him to be extremely efficient and cost-effective. He offers the best result for the client and avoids the parochial behavior that can interfere with achieving the simplest and best solution for a business issue. His expertise was greatly manifested as Spencer put together an Employee Contract and an Employee Handbook for the Dyslexia Center of Utah.
