My husband knew Michael Sprano from their time served together in the USMC. When we needed a trustworthy, experienced defense attorney to help with a misdemeanor case for our family member, we confidently chose to employ the Sprano firm. The plaintiff in this case was overzealous and extremely difficult, bordering on stalking and slandering our family member whom she was seeking to fine and/or imprison. Sprano was able to negotiate a reduced charge with minimal penalty that didn't include jail time or any large fees and have the judge rule against a proposed protection order that was without merit. Because this was our first involvement with the criminal court system, Sprano patiently educated us along the way and ensured our family member was fully prepped for trial. We would utilize Sprano's services without any hesitation in the future should the need arise. If you're looking for the best defense attorney to trust with your future, you're lucky to have found the Sprano firm.
Mr. Sprano came highly recommended to me, and I was more than pleased with his services. He knows exactly what he's doing and makes sure to negotiate the best outcome for his client. I highly recommend him - great to work with. Thank you!
Mr. Sprano was hired because he said my case would be easily handled. Low price and that is exactly right for the service recweived - he did nothing and was am embarrasment in the court room. He is horrible and I would not recommend to my worst enemy. Do not trust or hire this person. My small case became a large issue due hiring him and I will regret using him for th rest of my life.
I called Michael Sprano for a consultation regarding a DWI case. He asked pertinent questions and offered excellent advice. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone and would hire him again if ever needed. I am grateful to him for all he has done for me.
I really enjoyed working with Mr. Sprano.
He showed up to court three times for my case, and I was able to walk away with all charges dismissed!
Mr. Sprano is an excellent lawyer. He handled our case with great dedication and knowledge. He kept us informed and we are confident that he obtained the best possible outcome. His representation was spotless, we highly recommend him.
Mike is a wondurful lawyer! He helped get my larceny charge reduced by working closely with the prosecutor. He kept me posted on everything I needed to do and anything he was doing. He very understanding and down to earth. He is a family man and a very intelligent attorney. If you're in the northern virginia area mike would be a very good investment for your future.
Mr Sprano listens to you unlike most, attempts to contact potential witnesses, provides the legal basis for the defense, and provides his prognosis. He is professional and proficient. He cares about his clients and give them the best defense possible. I highly recommend him.
Michael Sprano told me there would be no issues on my minor case and so did little to no preparation. I was suprised at his low price and took him at his word, but the reason the rprice was so low was because he did nothing to prepare. He did not even recognize me the morning of the trial, he was late and we had to then reschedule for later in the day. He does not seem to know what he is doing , clearly is not respceted by the prosecutors not the judge we had. He is a low-end traffic ticket lawyer who thinks he is something he is not. Just look at his office which we hires from another firm - you have to look closely to find his small name tag on the door. DO NOT hire this man or you will regret it.
Honest, very knowledgeable, and a great lawyer. Explained all my options and provided information and advice, but let me make the decision to go to trial our plead guilty without any pressure. Told me the plea was the safest option but when I decided to go to trial anyway he did a great job in the trial. Convinced the judge to dismiss the charges, saving me from a criminal record or worse. Couldn't have asked for better.
