TESTIMONIALS


Couldn’t Have Done it Without You

There are not enough words to thank Neal Bridges and this firm for getting a settlement from my previous employer. I know had I not hired Neal and this firm I wouldn’t have had a positive result.
Thank you so very much Neal.
Sincerely,

I am so impressed with James Hunnicutt from The Spencer Scott Law Firm!

I am so impressed with James Hunnicutt from The Spencer Scott Law Firm! He is an excellent attorney! Having practiced employment law for two years when I was first licensed as an attorney in Texas, I was impressed with how quickly and effectively he produced better results than I was able to get. He was on my side and got me fast results that I wasn’t expecting. I highly recommend him and expect that he has many more successes in his future for you!

Went above and beyond to guide me through my case every step of the way

I was looking for a lawyer to take my case against my former employer when I found Neal Bridges at Spencer Scott. Neal walked me through everything and was always there to answer any questions I had in a timely manner. He went above and beyond to guide me through my case every step of the way. Neal got me a fair settlement in a timely manner. I would recommend Neal he is a great attorney to work with.

Compensated for the time and stress

I was referred to Spencer Scott by a friend and gave them a call with regards to an issue regarding employment and non compete laws. I was terminated in September by a my employer. Although I felt the termination was unfounded, my main concern was my non compete I had signed at the beginning of my employment. I knew I could find another position within my industry but my non compete would prevent me for gaining employment for a period of time. I spoke with attorney Neal Bridges and together we went over the details of my employment, termination, and he reviewed my non compete thoroughly.
Not only was Mr. Bridges able to get me released from my non compete early, he was also able to get me a severance package due to unlawful termination issues as I am a female and over 50! I was very pleased to not only be able to get back to work in a timely manner but also be compensated for the time and stress out in me by my unforeseen termination.
Mr, Bridges carefully explained to me the process and kept me updated as to the status of my case and was able to resolve this without a trial and a long drawn out mediation, trial, etc…
I would recommend Spencer Scott law firm and specifically Neal Bridges.

No Need to Look Any Further!

It is on extremely rare occasion that I affix my name to the worth, value, or quality of people, products and services. So when I do, one can rest assured that my signature was preceded by in-depth observation and analysis. During the spring of 2016, I found myself in need of a civil attorney to represent me in a wrongful termination/breach of contract matter. I ultimately settled upon Spencer Scott PLLC. I completed the online request for information form, and I received a call from Jennifer Scott within less than three business hours! Once we agreed that she would represent my case, I stood in absolute awe of how she handles business. Attorney Spencer committed to my case as though I were the only client she was representing. She was expedient and passionate in her dealings with my former employer’s attorney. Never for a moment did I have to wonder about the status of my case, because Attorney Spencer consistently kept me updated and in the communication loop. She asked for and valued my opinions, and she never assumed a patronizing or condescending posture with me. Because of Attorney Spencer’s commitment to my case, satisfactory resolution of my case came very quickly. I will (and have) recommend Attorney Spencer to anyone in need of an attorney who functions with excellence, integrity, total commitment, and a “don’t quit until you win” work ethic. Attorney Jennifer Spencer represents. No Need to Look Any Further!

Significant Increase in Severance

Jennifer and her crew at Spencer Scott Law, pllc recently provided me with excellent legal representation in my transition away from my former employer.  Her counsel was both sympathetic towards me, and yet firm and assertive with the opposition.  She was able to significantly increase the value of the severance package that was offered by my former employer, while avoiding the need for an invasive, lengthy, and expensive jury trial.  She has my highest recommendation.  MJA

Within two weeks of engaging Jennifer Spencer and her able staff, the employer doubled their offering.

I’m recommending Spencer Scott for legal representation in negotiating a successful outcome for your separation agreement upon layoffs and workforce reductions.  The oil and gas industry has experienced dramatic reductions in staff across all sectors—operations, management, and service companies.  In such economic context, proving age discrimination for the middle age manager becomes a challenge.

My employer offered the minimum in severance and COBRA, and when I attempted to represent myself in negotiation, they stood firm on their original offer.  Within two weeks of engaging Jennifer Spencer and her able staff, the employer doubled their offering.  This settlement with extended COBRA brought much relief while the industry recovers and begins to rehire as commodity prices stabilize over the next year.

The decision to retain Jennifer proved the best possible outcome.  With Spencer Scott’s Law timely communications during critical deadlines, I experienced peace of mind and confidence in my counsel.

Employment discrimination assistance

I was referred to Jennifer by a couple of people who recommended her for help with my Employment Law issue. I had been recently laid off from a company who told me they were eliminating my position but I found out quite by accident that my position truly wasn’t eliminated, but renamed, and had been back-filled but someone who was younger and of a different race than me (I am over the age of 40). I originally went to the EEOC and they refused to help me so I called Jennifer to see if I had a potential case against my ex-employer. She agreed that I had a case and worked with me to write up a demand letter to my ex-employer. It took a couple of weeks to get a resolution made with my former employer and we were able to settle the matter out of court.
Jennifer and her associate attorney, James Hunnicutt, were very responsive to my phone calls and questions and I would highly recommend their services if you’re in need to assistance with an Employment Law issue.

I would be pleased to recommend Spencer Scott pllc

Recently I was shocked by a decision the company I worked for made when they “realigned” and my job of 19 years was eliminated. Mine as well as several others. It seemed as if many above a certain age had become victims of “ageism”. I was not ready for a battle, but I felt I deserved better better coming to me under the circumstances. I was advised to contact Jennifer Spencer by a very good friend. I was so pleased Jennifer could help me because I live in Atlanta, GA and did not know where to turn for legal advice.

She understood my concerns, offered me excellent advice and proceeded to work with my old company’s lawyer (and then another lawyer when we were re-assigned) to accomplish an agreeable severance package which allows for more breathing room for me and easily pay the very reasonable fees for Spencer Scott pllc. This all took place with in a perfect time frame and I did not have to fly back and forth to Dallas. She stayed in close contact during the entire process.

This was a painful event, the bonus for me was that Jennifer was able to work with a few of us together. Between Jennifer and my co-workers, I never felt alone.

I am so thankful and am ready to move on. I would be pleased to recommend Spencer Scott pllc.

Sincerely,

Cindy R

What a pleasure it was working with Mary Scott

What a pleasure it was working with Mary Scott. She is the definition of a true professional. I was recently needing help with an employment issue and reached out to Mary. Her knowledge and expertise on the matter was superb. She and I discussed the situation and issues, developed a plan of action and she executed the strategy flawlessly. Made several recommendations along the way, held firm with our needs, kept me informed and we were able to get the best possible results. It was a pleasure having you on my side. Thanks, Mary

Annonymous AVVO Review – (see it here)

Above and beyond expectations

Jennifer and her associate James Hunnicutt went above and beyond expectations for me. They developed multiple strategies and pursued avenues I hadn’t considered. They know the law and were amazing at the hearing, outshining the opposition. They had the opposition scrambling to gain a foothold the entire hearing.

I’m a single mother and had been wrongfully terminated and denied unemployment benefits based on an unsubstantiated allegation that was untrue.

I was online all night one night looking for an attorney to help me and had sent out email requests to multiple attorneys. The first call I received was from Jennifer herself, bright and early the very next morning. She asked numerous questions to clarify facts about my case, then told me she thought I had a case and she would be happy to assist me. I received calls from two other attorneys later that day but they didn’t seem interested. One referred me to someone else who never called back. I hired Jennifer.

Jennifer and her team really cared about me, not just about winning the case. I would recommend Jennifer Jackson Spencer and her team to anyone who needs an employment attorney.

I was referred to Spencer Scott by a mutual acquaintance and have been very pleased with every step of the legal assistance Ms. Spencer has provided. I received warm, respectful, and professional attention from everyone I encountered at the firm. Ms. Spencer’s knowledge and prompt application of the law to my circumstance produced the ideal and desired outcome in a succinct, effective, and financially appropriate way. I have retained other firms for various reasons and have had charges pile up needlessly and I can say honestly that this was definitely not the case with Spencer Scott. I highly recommend them for outstanding service.
