Founder, William C. Spence

Message From Our Founder

We established our Firm so that individuals and forward-thinking businesses can affordably obtain access to experienced attorneys trained by some of the largest law firms in the country.
We are committed to being the best. All law firms are bound by high professional and ethical standards. SpencePC commits itself to one additional standard: Be outstanding in everything we do.
Being outstanding means both providing outstanding legal services and doing so in a way that provides outstanding value to our clients. To demonstrate our commitment to these goals, we encourage alternative-fee arrangements that reward success and efficiency, not the time we bill.
Thank you for allowing us to demonstrate a better way to obtain legal services.

Clients choose SpencePC because we do outstanding work for fair compensation. Unlike our competitors, we encourage the use of alternative-fee agreements that more closely align our clients’ interests with the Firm’s interests. As a result, our clients pay only for the value they receive.

Our philosophy is simple: be outstanding and offer a unique value proposition.

Hourly billing creates the wrong incentive for attorneys to work longer, not smarter. Instead, we encourage alternative-fee arrangements that reward success and efficiency. By doing so, our attorneys remain focused on obtaining the best results for our clients in the most cost-efficient manner.

We are attorneys who specialize in intellectual property and complex litigation. We hold science, engineering, and law degrees from the nation’s top schools. Following our education, each of us received years of additional training from prestigious, top-tier law firms. Our billing model ensures we remain focused on obtaining the best results in the most cost-efficient manner.
