"Dear Mike,

Many thanks for the very professional and gentlemanly way that you conducted yourself at the trial of my son. Of course, I along with all of my family were thrilled beyond words with the outcome. We all wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year. Thanks for everything.



"Mr. Spano,

Thanks for taking my case and getting me a not guilty verdict. You are a great lawyer. I could not asked for anything more. Please know that you now hold a special place in my family's heart.

Thanks again.



I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your quality and professional representation of my father. You have a truly sharp legal mind and your courtroom presence is among the best. (Your closing was the best I have seen in 18 years of practice.) I am forever grateful for your two years of hard work, dedication and service to my father's case.

Thank you.


"I give Mr. Spano the highest possible recommendation. Mr. Spano was extremely professional, courteous, responsive and possessed a mastery of the legal system. Mr. Spano helped me navigate somewhat unorthodox legal matter, he did so quickly and always kept me informed. He resolved my case with the best possible outcome. I recommend Mr. Spano for any legal issue ranging from the simplest to the most complex. You won't find a better lawyer.

Thanks Mike for all your help!"

"Hi Michael,

Thank you so much for taking my case and fighting for me! Thank you for assuring me that just because a good honest person makes a mistake does not mean they have to be treated like a criminal!! I feel so much more confident than I did, since I consulted with you. Thank you for your compassion and understanding. Sincerely,
