Attorney Kelly Brown was very helpful and went above and beyond with follow up and ensuring she had details prior to our consultation.


We recently worked with attorney Kelly Brown on a loan closing and found her to be very personable and professional. The transaction was highly organized and the follow up documents were bound and organized. This was first class Professional Legal service exceeding my expectations. Nice to work with people that enjoy their work, care about the quality of the product and service and care about their clients.

Clay Elder

I appreciated the clarity in discussing my circumstances and advice given. Mr. McGrath took the time to listen and ask questions to insure understanding.


Kelly Brown and McGrath & Spielberger helped us though a difficult situation. Though time was not on our side in the situation, Kelly and her team absolutely did not let that affect their performance in getting us closed. I had three attorneys tell us it could not be done. Well, Kelly did it!

DS Barron

Came to our rescue on short notice. I believe we have found our “go to” real estate Attorney!

I sensed that Mr McGrath actually cared about my situation which ultimately led us to deciding to use the firm to represent us.


Worked with Kelly Brown. Very thorough and overall positive experience. Just recommended to friends and thought I’d leave a review.

I needed Jasons Help with a business licensing agreement and a merchandising agreement I was asked to sign. I am so glad I asked him to look at them because he found several things that needed to be changed in my favor and the best interest of both parties. If I didn’t have Jasons help, I could have signed these agreements that would have been a big problem if I ever needed to dispute something court with the agreements. Jason was great at explaining to me, and the other parties involved what and why the changes are necessary.

Dealing with a foreclosure is a very scary thing. I was about to lose my home of 17 years to a mortgage company, that did not follow the laws. The mortgage company lied to me flat out. I tried to deal with them on my own but could not get anywhere with them. After trying to talk to both the Mortgage company and their Lawyer I finally gave up and started to research online information. I saw nothing can be done to stop a foreclosure once it has started. When I finally obtained legal council my house had actually already been sold at the court house. I thought I would never get my home back. I was making arrangements for my 3 kids and myself to start moving. The mortgage company held off answering my calls or returning my calls to be able to obtain ownership of my almost paid off home. I am telling you all this so you understand just how bad it was. My house was foreclosed and sold before Kelly Brown came into the picture. It took 3 months and a lot of years on my part, but my home is now my home again! Even though the Mortgage company had bought my house back at the foreclosure sale ( I knew nothing about and was never advertised) Kelly Brown fought and reversed everything. This law firm comes VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by me. KELLY BROWN comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by me.

Marnie Naylor

As a businesswoman, I highly recommend Jim as he has helped me with complicated matters in real estate, landlord/tenant laws, as well as numerous personal legal matters. I feel so lucky to have him as my attorney and I trust him 100%.

So helpful and just a pleasure to talk to, she gave me so much help with my problem

Fred Koehn

Thank you so much for your help with our situation with the Internal Revenue Service. I had prepared and paid my taxes correctly each year, but the tax service I used for 4 years did not file them properly. Instead of penalizing my tax service, the IRS penalized me, even though I filed and paid my taxes every year. Originally, I considered hiring a Tax Resolution Service to represent me. But, after reading reviews for those companies, it appeared to me that many of their clients were simply trying to reduce their tax debt. In my case, I had done everything right, and I did not want to be labeled or looked at as someone who was just wanting to have their taxes reduced. I wanted the fines eliminated!!! At first, I tried to explain my situation on my own to the IRS. They denied my request the first time to eliminate my fines, as they said that even though I used a tax service to prepare my taxes, the results were still my responsibility. Finally, I hired this law firm to represent me in an appeal. I have no idea how you explained the situation better than I did, but I just received letters from the Internal Revenue Service stating that my account for those years was settled and paid in full. Thank you!!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!! I was facing around $15,000.00 in fines, and those fines were settled with the work you did representing me. I hope many people read my review and see what you could possibly do for them Sincerely: Danny Smith Statesville, NC

Danny Smith

My family and I would like to say thank you to McGrath and Spielberger. We greatly appreciate all the hard work, time and energy Mr. Jason McGrath and your agency spent towards assisting us with rectifying our legal matter. We found Mr. McGrath to be very professional. Mr. McGrath was very knowledgeable and experienced in the area of our legal issue. We also thank the McGrath and Spielberger firm for reasonable fee charged for the services provided which could have been much higher with other firms.


I used the firm for the seller side of residential property transaction. The buyer’s attorney was wiling to do both sides of closing, however I opted for my own representation. Even with slightly higher fees of this firm, I saved about $1000 due to M & S successful advocacy about taxes due in the closing. The firm did fine job for me.

Jan Sisk

Attorney Kelly was very helpful. She was very knowledgeable and patient too be sure I understood everything

John Morrill

I had a great experience working with Jason McGrath and ultimately got more returned to me from a shady business than I expected. They are not cheap and yes they bill for every transaction including reading your emails. However, I felt that the costs were billed correctly for the professionalism and knowledge that I received. I’d use them again if the need were to arise.

Justin King

I had a great and easy experience with this Firm. I would recommend them

John Geary

Jim was prompt, thorough and professional in his consultation, legal advice and feedback to me related to my legal matter! I wouldn’t hesitate to seek Jim’s advice and counsel in the future.

Ross Melinchuk

His frankness in letting me know the positive and or negative of the situation I was consulting him about. This helped me make a decision which I felt comfortable with. I would be more than happy to refer anyone to Mr. McGrath. I was also impressed with his office staff Amy for getting me an appointment with Mr. McGrath�s tight schedule on such a short notice.

Lorraine Summerville

Jim Spielberger and his team helped me navigate a complicated transfer and assumption of assets from one corporation to another. He also helped negotiate with a parent company and made sure our best interests were kept at heart. He was very responsive and kept me informed and up to date with the progress he was making. Jim and his firm are very professional and and you would be doing yourself a favor by having them represent you!


I made my initial inquiry to Jim based on his excellent reviews. From the beginning, I was extremely impressed with his legal expertise, timeliness of response and thorough analysis of my situation. He did exhaustive research and patiently addressed all my questions and concerns. I was very pleased with the results, and will definitely use his services again. I am certain that the desired results would never have been realized without his assistance.


Jim Spielberger provided me outstanding guidance during a very frustrating and difficult landlord/tenant situation. Prior to connecting with Jim, I spoke with other lawyers and they told me nothing could be done to help my situation. Jim on the other hand, he wanted to find a solution. He’s a skilled and determined problem solver. He came up with a reasonable solution for both parties and got the job done. I’m extremely impressed with his confidence, initiative and client-focus. I’m very grateful. Highly recommend.


Jim helped my wife and I re-write our wills. We have 2 small children and his attention to detail was tremendous. We were very impressed with the level of thought and professionalism he put into these documents. We are completely satisfied that we have every angle covered in the event either or both of our wills need to be executed.


Jim Spielberger has help my business on many occasions with Legal Assistance. Everytime he has done an excellent job with good communications giving me all details on what to expect and how to proceed. I will use him for all my legal issues and recommend him to all my business associates in need of legal assistance.

Thomas Lee

Kelly helped me with some advice for my small business start up and also with drafting terms and conditions and a privacy policy for my website. She was very friendly, professional, asked great questions and gave helpful advice based on my unique small business. The documents I needed drafted were done in a timely manner and exactly what I was looking for. Overall, I had a great experience with her and would recommend her.


This team is fantastic. Very informative and very helpful. You don’t feel like they are looking at you as dollar signs! They both were very interested and involved with their full attention! Thank you guys so much, I will be using your firm for everything starting my new business! I have called 10 different attorneys and these guys are by far the best to deal with! THANK YOU AGAIN!!

Mike T.

I was referred to McGrath & Spielberger after I decided to purchase my first investment property in the Charlotte, NC area. After experiencing the stress of trying to finance a full rehab project along with filtering through contractors, I’m happy I decided to go with M&S. The process was very professional with no issues or surprises. Kelly explained all forms and answered any questions/concerns to provide a very efficient closing. I will definitely hire Kelly for my next project!


My wife and I engaged Jason’s firm to represent us in a mortgage dispute. He is knowledgeable, committed to success, and a great communicator. He offered sound, practical guidance that resulted in a very satisfactory outcome. I strongly recommend him.


Struggling in the Construction business I found myself behind on my Mortgage payment. Had I listened to Bank Of America and followed their instructions I would not have my home today. They insisted that I did not qualify for any type of modification to my Mortgage and it was to late. How could I tell my Wife and 2 children that we had no where to live ? A Friend told me to call Jason McGrath. Mr. McGrath, sent me a simple form to fill out. He called back the next day and told me that I qualified for a Modification and by Law The Bank had to help me ! He took care of the court dates and all communications with the Bank and Saved My Home ! Hire Jason McGrath you will be glad you did.


Jason and his staff kept me informed every step of the way. The got results after my Wife and I had hit a brick wall with our lender. I would utilize his services again


We were an out of state client for Mr. McGrath, and were recommended to him by another attorney in Asheville. To this day, after successful resolution of our matter involving debt settlement with a bank out of Asheville, we have not met Jason in person. However, Jason successfully overcame this hurdle, keeping us up to date on our matter, and tactfully dealing/negotiating on our behalf. Jason is obviously a bright individual who is methodical and pays attention to detail. Ultimately, we were able to reach an agreement with the bank due to the representation by Jason. We would have to say that all this was accomplished at a very reasonable fee, with a detailed accounting by Jason’s firm as well. We would wholeheartedly recommend Jason to anyone finding themselves in a difficult debt settlement or contract agreement situation. It is a great relief to have this issue behind us. Great work, Jason.


We were in the middle of a foreclosure, and originally found one of those “fly by night” firms. After doing some research, we learned that we were in a scam. Then we found Jason McGrath with McGrath & Spielberger. Not only did they walk the walk, they talked the talk! Everything was done quickly, our home was saved and we received the loan modification that we needed. I recommend this company for anyone who is in home foreclosure.


Jason McGrath and his staff, did an outstanding job in negotiating an extremely favorable settlement for us with BB&T bank, for mortgages that were held on two lots that were purchased in North Carolina. The lots were fraudulently sold to perspective home owners by the developer.
Without Jason’s expertise and diligence, I know we would not have been able get out of the nightmare. I would highly recommend Jason and his staff for your legal issues, and I will definitely call McGrathSpielberger again, in the future in the need arises.

Jim & Deanna

Jason is an outstanding attorney and an outstanding person. After I tried unsucessfully to deal with a mortgage servicer, Jason relieved the stress and headache from me and successfully handled our case. He was very well prepared. At our first meeting he established his expectations for our case and has exceeded them. I highly recommend Jason.


After attempting to negociate the muddy waters of loan modification, etc, re HAMP, for more than a year, failing repeatedly, we hired Jason and Associates. They worked with us over time, essentially taught BoA the HAMP and Fannie Mae programs, and succeeded in accomplishing more than I had hoped for! I have and do highly recommend the services of McGrath & Spielberger, PLLC. They are a pleasure to work with, and fairly priced as well!
