About the Firm

After practicing law for over 12 years in and around New York City, Dr. Spencer wanted to move back to the Adirondack Park and realized her hometown community was without transactional legal representation.  The mission of Schroon Law PLLC is to provide the Schroon Lake region as well as Essex and Warren counties with preeminent, transactional legal services and guidance for the local community, second homeowners and local businesses. Our practice focuses on estate planning, including wills and trusts; real estate; elder law; business law; and other transactional legal services.
