My family has roots in Sherman Oaks and San Fernando Valley going back to 1948. Back then Model T’s were still racing up and down Ventura Boulevard. You could have also seen starlets dining at Du-Par’s restaurant into the wee hours of the morning.

Well a lot has changed since then.

My law practice provides the personal touch that seems to be lacking with so many larger impersonal law firms. The days of relentlessly over-charging clients are over. Big firms, with even bigger bills,* are unsustainable in this economic climate. Especially for so-so results! (see what judges have to say about big bills below*).

I promise to provide a high level of expertise at an affordable cost. My family owns the building where the firm is located. As a result we can pass the cost savings onto our clients.

Unlike other establishments, our firm’s policy is not to over-charge for telephone calls, faxes or copies. In many instances, our firm will charge a flat fee for services.

Thank you for your trust, Mitchell Sperling, Esq.

* “Big firms, with even bigger bills” is not an exaggeration.”

Consider this quote from Los Superior Court, then-presiding family law judge, Aviva Bobb, from a bar association meeting in September 2002. “By the time we see [divorce] cases in court, most people have spent all their community assets on the divorce itself.”

Also according to Presiding California Family Law Judge Marjorie Steinberg in the Los Angeles Times Magazine, May 4, 2008, if a couple can get a divorce for $100,000 in Los Angeles, Judge Steinberg considers that “pretty cheap.”
