Very grateful that we hired Joel for our home purchase! He was extremely professional and made the process smooth sailing. He always responded to our questions same-day and was happy to explain the process to us several times (which we definitely needed.)
We weren’t sure we needed an attorney for purchasing a home, but we saved money and stress during the negotiation process, so certainly worth it. Thank you for your help Joel!
If you’re considering filing bankruptcy I highly recommend you use Joel Spivack. He is knowledgeable, courteous and professional. He guided me through the process and went through smoothly without any surprises.
Joel has had our back on more than one occasion. He's professional and personable. I called him on a Friday after hours and he called right back. Talk about peace of mind. I didn't have to sit on a problem over the weekend. He's helped us sort out some pretty sizable problems for a very reasonable fee. Hiring him was one of the best decisions we ever made.

I found Mr Spivack to be an extremely intelligent and compassionate attorney who helped us through a very difficult financial time. He handled our bankruptcy efficiently and made us very comfortable with our choice to file. I also felt that his fees were EXTREMELY reasonable compared to most bankruptcy attorneys. He even offered us follow up advice after the bankruptcy, if I were to need any. I would highly recommend Mr Spivack if searching for an attorney.
Highly Recommend, Mr Spivak helped me with a very difficult situation that I was in. From the very first meeting with him, he explained everything to me clearly. He was always available to me and always return my calls or texts promptly. He always sent me any information that he received from the courts with an explanation.

Mr. Spivak was experienced, knowledgeable, and understanding in representing us in a closing resulting in a successful transaction. I highly recommend him.
Joel has been a life saver. He has gone above and beyond our expectations. We made the mistake of not hiring a lawyer during attorney review and once we started having issues we hired Mr. Spivack. After speaking to him we knew he would help us through the rest of the real estate transaction. Joel did not disappoint he went above and beyond and gave us piece of mind.
