personal injury attorney Spencer Fielding

SPENCER FIELDING

Attorney

After graduating from Duke Law School, Spencer was employed with Thompson & Knight, one of the largest law firms in Dallas, Texas. He worked in their Corporate & Securities Department. Thriving but not enamored with the narrow strictures of corporate firm life, he later accepted a job with a Dallas attorney that specialized in Personal Injury.

Upon gaining invaluable insight into Personal Injury law, Spencer returned to Eastern Washington and opened up his own Personal Injury practice. In addition to the Tri-Cities office which opened in May 2010, Spencer has also opened offices in Yakima, Moses Lake, Seattle, Tacoma and Boise. Spencer was born and raised on a farm in Pasco, Washington. As a young boy, he spent several summers picking apples in the orchard. One of Spencer’s proudest achievements was becoming the fastest apple picker in the orchard, once picking 15 bins of apples in one day.

Growing up on a farm taught him the value of hard work and gave him the opportunity to learn Spanish. He also enjoyed playing basketball in his youth and would practice several hours a day. In fact, due to his relentless pursuit of shooting prowess, he once made 226 free throws in a row. Spencer is married to Andrea Allred Fielding, who is also from Eastern Washington, and they have five children.
