  • Leonard L Spada

    As a civil litigator who does not handle criminal matters, I refer all of my criminal defense matters to Attorney Christopher. I have done so for over 10 years. Attorney Christopher's success rate with my referrals has been phenomenal due to his meticulous preparation, courtroom skills and insider knowledge of our criminal justice system. Attorney Christopher is an aggressive, skilled and creative advocate who finds a way to win. I will continue to send him my criminal defense work and take comfort in knowing that my clients are in very capable hands.
