"I am incredibly grateful for everything.  Martin Spieker is a brilliant lawyer, and at the beginning while I may have gotten the sentiment from Martin that my case as a waste of time and money, he didn’t let that stop him.  His knowledge, expertise, and willingness to GRIND for me eventually did work by focussing on a different approach of the case; and it worked by much more than I could have ever hoped for.  Martin’s assistant was the most amazing assistant.  She helped bring clarity to times of confusion and was fast and efficient with everything that had to be done.  She also showed compassion and patient when needed, as there were plenty of times where I was wiping my tears either on the phone with her or in person.  I thank the firm for allowing my case to be taken, and for fronting all the monetary expenses prior to the settlement, even though it took time."
