Ms. Sprissler believes that her success comes from her honesty with each client about the strengths and weaknesses of each case. Ms. Sprissler's clients all know that she will never tell them something that they want to hear, just to "land the case" and get their money. Ms. Sprissler also believes that her success in court comes in part from her presentation of each client as a human being before a judge or jury.

Ms. Sprissler joined Hamilton, Petrocelli & Sprissler, LLP in October of 2007. She is delighted to be practicing law with two close friends who understand her intense dedication to her family and her profession.
