When my x stopped paying child support, I knew I needed help. I spoke with several attorneys, several of which were highly rated and in very large practices. Most charged their clients by the hour. It was clear that I could end up being $20k or more if the case went to court. When I interviewed/met with Mr. Spetalnick, he provided the initial consultation at no charge as did the other attorneys, but he took more time with me. At the end of our meeting, I knew I had found the right attorney who would work hard for me and would not nickel and dime me to death. Rather than charge me by the hour, he provided a flat fee for his work up until the court date and a 2nd fee if we went to court. Ultimately, we did not end up in court and everything was in my favor due to Mr. Spetalnick's expertise in handling my case. It was clear that Mr. Spetalnick spent a great deal of time on my case and thought through the best way to document and present the facts to my x's attorney and to a judge if we ended up in court. I definitely made the right decision when I hired Mr. Spetalnick and I know the overall cost was much less than it would have been had I hired an attorney who had charged me an hourly rate. Mr Spetalnick can be very direct, blunt and somewhat harsh at times, but don't let that scare you away. He's passionate about his work and works tirelessly for his clients.

I have recommended Jon Spetalnick to others. The efficient and thorough way that he handled my divorce and custody issues were swift and neat. He is not the kind of attorney that you should go to if you want him to be nice and play at being a lawyer. He will give you the choice "Do you want him to be gentle with you? Or Do you want him to rip the band aid off?" I choose rip the band aid off, he was still nice to me and my children.

Jon Spetalnick served as my wife's attorney during a troubled time in our marriage, whereas I had not "lawyered up." He was rude, insulting, and clearly did not want for us to resolve our differences amicably or outside of court. Much to his chagrin, we did. Did I mention we have kids? Do not use this lowlife bottom-feeder.
