Client Comments

"John Spinrad has advised and represented our company since its inception, and I have had dealings with John prior to that as well. He has guided us in our growth from one location in 1997 to our current status as a national company with 23 locations -- including several restored brownfields. While we have worked with many other attorneys at other firms throughout the country, none are better that John Spinrad at AGG."

-Steven Levetan
Senior Vice President
Pull-a-Part LLC

"John has worked with us on the acquisition of 23 industrial sites, and the review of many others that we did not acquire. Many of these sites were brownfields, requiring significant input from John. Additionally, he has assisted in the negotiation of several insurance policies related to these sites. He has been an invaluable member of our team."

"I have worked with Mr. Spinrad on several land acquisitions and ground leases where the property being acquired was subject to moderate to severe environmental contamination. Mr. Spinrad has assisted me in analyzing environmental risk, obtaining environmental insurance, and participating in various brownfields programs. He is my "go-to" lawyer for environmental issues, even if outside of his primary jurisdiction. He is very responsive and I have never had to chase him for work product or responses. His calm demeanor makes him easy to work with and makes him effective in persuading people to his point of view. He has the ability and will take the time to make complex environmental matters (including environmental insurance) understandable. Mr. Spinrad is a very experienced environmental attorney and I trust his judgment implicitly on environmental matters. I would highly recommend him to businesses in need of environmental counsel, and have done so."

"
