I contacted and retained Sam Spital to handle a State investigation against me. Sam was successful in having the investigation closed and the case dismissed. All attorneys are not equal. 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 ANY INVESTIGATION OR CHARGES BROUGHT AGAINST YOU. Sam gets it right the first time and without spending your life savings or having to deal with it for years on end. When you call Sam you will discover he is a warrior, but treats you as a friend and not only a client.

I was in a devastating situation about a year ago. My RN license was in serious jeopardy. I had to find a solution and a good lawyer within two weeks. With god's help and prayers, I found Samuel Spital. He was open with me from the beginning; he explained the whole process, hiring the top experts available to testify on my behalf, completing an excellent mitigation package with the goal to get my case resolved before going to trial. Sam did not give me any unrealistic expectations, but he promised to do the best to help me out. He treated me with respect, and was available 24/7 to answer any questions I had. He saved me from losing my license but most of all he saved me from losing hope in the process. It was a very difficult year, but it was also a great experience to see honesty, integrity and superb ethics and learn from the best.

Sam Spital and his associate obtained an outcome for my case that is better than I ever thought possible. I know that it was their hard work, experience, and guidance toward the use of highly distinguished expert opinions that made this possible. Sam, I am just grateful for what you did and highly endorse you to other licensed professionals,whether nurse, physician, pharmacist, hysical therapist, psychologist, counselor, optometrist, occupational or rehabilitation therapist. Again, I can't even find words to express how thankful I am for Sam Spital and his associate did for me.

How lucky I was to have found Sam over the internet. The first time I talked to him I was filled with hope concerning our situation. Trying to solve issues from another state and not personally knowing your attorney is difficult but Sam's professionalism and caring (strong word for a lawyer) made all the difference. He made a stressful situation much easier and the result was sucessful. Thank you again Sam, Patti Morris

Title: EXPERT CRIMINAL ATTORNEY & BEST LICENSE DEFENSE: I contacted Mr. Spital regarding my case which turned out to be much more serious than I originally thought. He took the time to go over all my options and was able to help me in reaching an appropriate course of action. I really appreciated his honesty and integrity. Although he prioritized my case and performed over five hours of legal analysis and strategy, Sam did not charge me a dime. I will forever be indebted to Sam and without any reservation I recommend you call him if you have any criminal or professional license issue.

Sam, I will forever be grateful for your help on my criminal case and your concern regarding the Board of Behavioral Science and my license with the BBS. Once I retained your services, my worries were over. You are a man or your word, say what you mean and mean what you say. Thank you for your tireless efforts, being available 24/7 and doing outstanding work for me.

I have known and worked with Sam Spital for several years. He has counseled me, helped me, laughed at my jokes, and helped ease the pain of disappointment. He is an excellent attorney and is knowledgeable in many different aspects of law. He is personally humble and respectful to his clients, doing whatever it takes to get the most satisfactory result in each matter. I am pleased to call Sam Spital my friend, and proud to acknowledge his excellence as an attorney.

THE GREATEST CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER. When I spoke with Sam Spital, he took the time to evaluate my situation, gave me legal advice on a criminal case that my former attorney did not do in the entire time he handled my case. I did not know Sam, but he treated me as if I was his client and even more akin to being a friend. He did not charge any fee for his advice. Sam's superior legal knowledge is unmatched by the lawyer I previously worked. If you have a criminal case or any legal problem in the areas of law Sam practices, you should call SAM. You will be impressed - - . - - - .

MOST KNOWLEDGABLE and uniquely experienced attorney. No one knows the practical implementation of the law like Sam Spital. 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!

Sam Spital returned my call himself within 30 minutes of my email. He gave me his time patiently, while listening well. He reminds me of the old time doctors (although he doesn't look like that from his photo) who are patient, warm, knows the answers and doesn't waist your time or money! Although I only met him on the phone, he gave me advice that helped calm me and give me the courage to move on. I offered to pay him for his time on the phone and he would not accept compensation. If I find that I need a lawyer, he will be the ONE and only I call! His level of service and the way that he connects with people is extremely uncommon these days...and so needed! Thank you Sam!!

I am a senior citizen and have called Sam Spital for legal advice for about ten years, both while my husband was alive and since he passed on. Sam always cared enough to spend the time to answer my questions on countless occasions and also give me options, all at no charge. Trust me, I always offered to pay Sam, but he would not accept any compensation. I fully endorse Sam if you want a dedicated and competent lawyer on your side.

I contacted Mr. Spital via email with a question about a license reinstatement for a friend. He did not know me nor did he know I was an attorney. I received a telephone call within 45 minutes of sending that email, with a voice mail message and a follow up email. When I returned his call he immediately answered my call, and spoke with me for about 20 minutes. He was extremely knowlegeable, professional and honest. Most attorneys would not spend that amount of time on the phone and would charge for the information he gave me. I am very impressed by his sincerity, and his desire to assist his clients. I will not hesitate to refer any client to him.

When I received a complaint from the CSLB regarding a licensing issue I was shocked and began looking for a competent experienced no BS attorney who could help me. After interviewing 2 other attorneys, I called Sam Spital. Based on Sams positive attitude and years of experience being a DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL for the California Department of Justice. I knew he was the right man for the job. I would highly recommend Sam Spital to anyone with a legal problem. Thanks Sam!

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 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. 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.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has worked with lawyers over the past 10 years on forensic evaluations. Sam was amazing. He is the best lawyer I have worked with, from professionalism, to attention to detail, to being personable and very reachable by phone and email. He clearly cares about his clients and does a superb job. He is very knowledgeable, and was very team oriented in his approach with working with another professional. I don't know anyone who works harder than this guy. 7 days a week, he was available for questions and consultations, and gets back to you extremely quickly so you are not left hanging. He is really great at what he does and I highly recommend him
