My wife and I sought out Spencer Ball’s assistance when our home burnt down and our insurance company refused to pay fair value for our property. Within a short period of time, Spencer had obtained a sizeable cheque from the insurance company so that we had the money to rebuild our home and move on with our lives. We would highly recommend Spencer as a lawyer.

I would just like to recommend Jordan Duplessis of Northern Law to anyone regarding matters of Family Law. On the morning of the very first day I spoke with Jordan on the phone to discuss my issue he looked into it that very same day and before the end of the day he was able to provide me with the reassurance I was looking for and also suggested a final step that he would take on my behave to make my intentions clear to another lawyer with no extra cost to me. In the future if there comes a time that I require legal services Northern Law will be my first call. In the future should someone ask me if I could recommend a law firm that I know takes care of its’ clients and provides excellent service I will highly recommend the Services of Northern Law.

I highly recommend Spencer Ball. He made what can be a very difficult and stressful time easy. He was very thorough, honest, and easy to deal with. He kept me informed throughout the entire process and got excellent results. Spencer is an excellent lawyer and I would not hesitate to recommend or use him again.

Dan P., Espanola

Thank you so much to Jordan and staff at Northern Law. I will use your service when required in the future.

In 2016, I retained Mr. Spencer Ball in an estate litigation matter regarding an estate trustee. Mr. Ball acted quickly and obtained a favourable result for me both on a Motion and Application. I am pleased with the result and his fees. I highly recommend Mr. Ball as a lawyer.

Kiet V., London

A great and eager Team at Northern Law. Had been to other law offices and here you actually get to speak to a lawyer. No more relying messages through an assistant then having to wait for an answer back. This Team is down to earth, they have patience, are understanding and I know it sounds funny but they are honest! A beautiful and modern office with free parking. I was very happy with my experience there, can only recommend them!

Zena C., Sudbury

Great service, very helpful

Kim H., Sudbury

I hired Spencer Ball as my second lawyer 2 weeks before my hearing…3 years into the case. Spencer took me on and got straight to work (he had 40lbs of files to go through and a huge mess to sort out). Spencer Ball cares about you, he is empathetic, very straight forward and tells you the truth. Spencer is also very prompt in returning e-mails and phone calls.

Situations that arise in our life that force us to have to hire lawyers are very stressful on ourselves and our families , it is utmost important that your lawyer does their job, and cares about you while working for you. I am very thankful for Spencer Ball, I wish I would have had hired him first. In my case a settlement was reached. Thank you Spencer.

We will recommend Northern Law LLP to anyone we know in need of legal services. We recently had the pleasure of dealing with Jordan, and cannot comment enough on his knowledge, professionalism and how quickly he took us in to evaluate our needs and provide his services. The office is clean, inviting, and the staff working there are very friendly. We only wish we had known of this firm sooner!

Gabrielle D.

I have nothing but praise for Jordan. He was knowledgeable, understanding and patient when dealing with frustrating circumstances. He looked after my interests and responded personally and promptly to all calls and emails. He is honest, sincere, and has a good sense of humor as well. I highly recommend Jordan and the friendly capable staff at Northern Law.

In July of 2015 after unsuccessfully attending court on my own behalf to obtain a Guardianship Order for my father’s finances, Spencer Ball was recommended to me. Once I retained Mr. Ball he quickly dealt with all of the demands of the Public Guardian and Trustee and also persuaded the Judge to Order that I did not have to pay the extremely large security bond that the Public Guardian and Trustee was insisting upon. Not only would I highly recommend Mr. Spencer Ball to anyone in need of legal representation, but I have acquired his services for myself once again in another legal matter.

Carol S., Espanola

Spencer was very personable and listened to our needs. Always responded to our questions in an efficient manner. Surpassed expectations on our settlement with great negotiation skills. He was very upfront and honest. We would highly recommend his services in the future.
Thanks so much.

Alice & John B., Sudbury

My husband and I found Mr. Ball to be very professional and sympathetic to our situation. He took immediate action and swiftly resolved our legal matter. We are very thankful to Mr. Ball and pleased with the outcome of our case.

Janet N., Sudbury

Working with Spencer was an exceptional experience. I appreciate the level of transparency, professionalism and courtesy displayed throughout the duration our business. I highly recommend Spencer to anyone considering hiring him. Results were beyond my expectations and truly appreciate all the hard work that went into my case!

Chris V., Sudbury/Quinte West

Northern Law has really helped me. Jordan Duplessis has been patient and understand and taken the time to explain the legal process and what I needed to do with regards to custody of my children. I wish I had called him sooner. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal advice pertaining to Family Law. I might add that out of the 4 legal firms I contacted his professionalism, responsiveness and attitude was the best. Thank you Jordan.

Benjamin, Sudbury

I had met Jordan in person a year ago regarding another issue (housing/landlord), excellent customer service, took time to listen to me and give me information and I was pleased.

Lisa W.

This message is long overdue, yet I still would like to thank you for the professional legal representation you provided in order to resolve my legal matter. Your involvement has created a positive outcome for me which has improved the quality of my life. I really appreciate what you did for me and cannot thank you enough. With much gratitude,

If you are looking for timely, smart representation, tempered with a conscience, then you are looking in the right place. Jordan and his support staff provided me with outstanding legal service. I am very satisfied with what they did. Highly recommended.

Susan

I retained Spencer Ball’s services for a personal injury matter and was very pleased with the outcome. Spencer is very thorough in explaining the law and procedures involved and carries out his duties with utmost professionalism, care and affection while seeking the best outcome for his clients. Spencer was very approachable and was readily available to answer any questions and concerns I had, and was always prompt to reply the same day. He’s frank and sincere with his clients and will advise of the best course of action regarding the prospects of the case, ensuring the best interest of the client is met. I highly recommend representation from Spencer Ball for litigation services.
