Client Testimonials and Success Stories

Attorney Spivak helped me out of a devastating situation with the highest level of professionalism. I was served with a bogus PFA. I’m a police officer, and a PFA could destroy my career. I also have two small children. The stress I experienced from the PFA was unbelievable. I emailed Attorney Spivak late Friday night and he called me back early Saturday morning. I met with him at his office and went over the entire PFA. Attorney Spivak was calm, knowledgeable, and detailed about everything. He gave me hope and relieved a lot of my stress. On the hearing date, Attorney Spivak got the PFA withdrawn without even going before a judge or having a hearing. He worked diligently to negotiate terms on a private agreement with my ex-wife. He caught several cruel demands that my ex-wife tried to sneak into the agreement that would have given her legal custody over our children. I left the courthouse knowing we got the best possible outcome. Attorney Spivak even called my police chief to assure him that my ex-wife had abused the PFA system and I was not found guilty of any misconduct. I recommend Attorney Spivak to anyone needing someone to trust when it seems your whole world is falling apart.

If you’re looking for the best family law and criminal defense attorney in Pittsburgh, look no further than Attorney Todd Spivak. He has successfully defended me at PFA and criminal hearings. I have recommended several friends to him for child custody and he has helped them all.

– Jonathan D.

Hiring Attorney Todd Spivak was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. As an out-of-state defendant, I recently faced a PFA in Pennsylvania. Working as a law enforcement official and in the military reserves, a Final PFA Order would have ended my career. Attorney Spivak spent weeks preparing my defense and was always available by phone and email. On the day of the hearing, Attorney Spivak spent hours negotiating an agreement that dismissed the PFA with no ill-effects on my career and spared me the stress of a formal hearing. I walked into the courthouse facing termination from my employer and dishonorable discharge from the military due to false accusations. I walked out of the courthouse vindicated and extremely grateful. Thank you again, Attorney Spivak.

– John P.

I was falsely accused of harassment and physical abuse. My long-time girlfriend filed a bogus PFA against me, and I was evicted from my home feeling like I had no rights. I didn’t know who to call or who to trust. I’m a big guy, and that was being used against me even though I had no prior arrests. I called Attorney Todd Spivak and was immediately impressed by his level of competence. Attorney Spivak fought for me at the hearing, and he got the PFA dismissed. He also got the criminal charges against me dismissed. Attorney Spivak was solid. He communicated in a clear professional manner. He always listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I feel extremely comfortable recommending Attorney Spivak to anybody accused of domestic abuse.

Attorney Todd Spivak helped me through an extremely complicated case involving two PFAs and a criminal harassment charge. In the criminal trial, Attorney Spivak completely discredited both the officer and plaintiff, resulting in a dismissal of all charges. Attorney Spivak is an absolute godsend in court. If you’re under attack and going to war, Attorney Spivak isn’t just a shield – he’s a one-man army. After six months of having to prove my innocence, I walked out of court without any further concerns. Attorney Spivak returns calls and emails lightning-fast, and he explains each step of the process. There is absolutely no way I could thank Attorney Spivak enough. He helped me during a time in my life when I seemingly was losing everything, including my previously untarnished reputation. Without hesitation I would recommend Attorney Spivak over any other lawyer, period. Trust me, Todd Spivak is the attorney you need in your corner.

– Matt L.

Hiring Attorney Todd Spivak is the best move we’ve made in months, and it’s the first time our very difficult child custody case has started to move in the right direction. Attorney Spivak is fighting hard for the best outcome, and I’m truly grateful to have him in our corner. After months of frustration and numerous missteps on our part and the part of our former attorney, I can’t even put into words what a relief it has been to receive knowledgeable, accurate and timely advice. The contrast between Attorney Spivak’s practice and that of our former high-priced downtown attorney is phenomenal. If you want to speak with your attorney rather than be insulated from them and play the telephone game with underlings more than happy to miscommunicate your messages and ignore your questions, give Attorney Spivak a call – he’ll actually answer.

– Robyn Z.

Attorney Todd Spivak preserved my rights as a father and maintained my good name in the community. He successfully represented me at a PFA hearing, an emergency motion, and two custody conciliations. He defended my rights as a father and protected me from fiercely egregious allegations of abuse. From day one, I knew Attorney Spivak was the counsel I needed on my side. Never did I speak to a law clerk. Never did I wait for a return call. His patience, confidence, and sheer professionalism in practice are evident from the first moment. He answered every question I asked. There was no sugar coating or making light of any aspect of my case. Attorney Spivak has a commanding presence that is founded in a calm and calculated approach to the very serious matters for which he is trained to handle. I owe Attorney Spivak a debt of gratitude for his outstanding work as my attorney. If you need a lawyer with family law expertise, choose Spivak Law Firm.

Facing unfounded PFA accusations can be scary, especially when someone abuses the court system to damage your reputation, intimidate, and attempt to control you. Attorney Todd Spivak was my saving grace. He is a true professional who sincerely cares about the individuals and cases he handles. He protected my reputation twice, effectively defending me before the judge, exposing the truth, and getting the PFA dismissed with prejudice to prevent further abuse of the system. As a professional myself, it was such a relief that Todd was willing to speak with me after office hours and even on weekends when it wouldn’t interrupt my job. He is also fair on cost and kept me informed every step of the way. I highly recommend his services.

I hired Attorney Todd Spivak for a Summary Offense case in which I did something wrong that I was looking to keep off my record.
