I met Michael Spano during the darkest time in my life. Michael recently represented me in a serious criminal case. From our initial meeting, I knew I had chosen the best legal representation. He listened to me, he followed up on every detail and most importantly he believed in me. My life was in Mike's hands and I trusted him. He never made false promises. Mr. Spano worked tiredlessly and diligently in trial preparation. I was scared and afraid, Mike was there day/night to speak with me with any questions I had. He always demonstrated a kind and compassionate manner while understanding my uncertainty in the unknown. In the courtroom, Mr. Spano was brilliant! He presented my case in a professional and thoroughly prepared manner. He fought for me. Mr. Spano is a well-respected attorney. A true, soft spoken gentleman without a trace of arrogance. Michael Spano is the only board-certificated lawyer in Criminal Trial & Advocacy in NYS for a reason. Words can not express my deep gratitude and appreciation for the outstanding representation provided by Michael Spano. Thank you Mike for all your efforts on my behalf.

I am very pleased with the outcome that Mike Spano had with my son's case. Going into the stressful situation at every turn, Mike was there and let us know upfront what the costs would be and what the outcome would be provided my son complied with everything that was asked of him, which he did, now my son doesn't have a criminal record and he can grow into a fine young man that he is. I would recommend Michael Spano to anyone. He is very efficient and informs you with every move. I thank you for all that you did for me and my family.

Michael Spano did an outstanding job helping me out with my troubling situation. He was upfront, clearly explained the situation and what I needed to do, and always promptly returned my calls. He made sure I understood what was going on at all times with my case and most important, got me out of trouble and kept me out of jail! I would highly recommend him to anyone in the Syracuse area, and I couldn't be more happy with what he did to help me out.

When I was 19 years old I made a foolish mistake to steal from my employer Wal-Mart. Over a span of time, myself and another associate would occasionally take food and other small items with out paying for them. This happened on 9 occasions. I was caught by loss prevention and charged with 9 counts of petit larceny. I went to court a couple times but eventually moved to buffalo. I ended up losing contact with my previous lawyer and ended up not going to court. Several months later I found out that I had a warrant for my arrest, but I never turned myself in. I lived in Buffalo for a couple years and then moved to Middletown for a couple more years where I married and had two children. Within this 4-5 years span I had been pulled over by state police and turned away from the Canadian border and each and every-time they informed me about my warrant and let me know that Cicero police will let me turn myself in. I am now 25 and it wasn't until I found a new job that I realized that these petit larceny charges are serious and I needed to take care of them. On September 19th, 2014 I started looking for a lawyer so that I could eventually turn myself in. I searched the internet for criminal lawyers in Syracuse and Michael Spano's name appeared at the top. After researching Michael Spano I hired him immediately to represent me. A week later after hiring Michael Spano, he was able to get me a court date for October 2, 2014. On October 2nd I turned myself in and had my warrants released and was told to come back to Cicero for another court date because Michael Spano needed one more week to obtain a disposition. On October 9th, several hours before court, I was informed by Michael Spano that all 9 counts of petit larceny were significantly reduced to 2 counts of disorderly conduct which are not crimes. I am greatful to have Michael Spano represent me who made it so that I can move on with my life without a criminal record. My aspiration is to become a CPA and Michael Spano has made it so that I can continue with that dream.

Mr. Spano meets with his clients, attends court proceedings and returns phone calls and e-mails promptly. He's straightforward and yet a good listener.
Mr. Spano is one of the best attorneys in Syracuse.

Mike always returned my calls and always made sure everything was clear to me. He was straight forward in what can be done. He took care of my issue quickly. I was very satisfied by the outcome. I got even extra help with some other questions that had not been related to my case.
