About Me

California native Carlo Spiga completed his undergraduate studies at UCLA, where he graduated in 1987 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. Carlo Spiga then attended Pepperdine University School of Law and received his Juris Doctorate from Pepperdine in 1992. Carlo Spiga is licensed to practice law in the State of California, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal, and the Central and Eastern (Federal) District Courts.

Through his success with Spiga & Associates, Carlo Spiga has also developed an expertise on police corruption. He was one of the first attorneys to have his client released from prison based on allegations in the “Rampart” LAPD corruption scandal. He has also worked closely with the former inspector general of the LAPD in an effort to bring other wayward officers to justice. Spiga has been a sought after lecturer at law schools and has been featured on Radio and Television speaking on criminal defense and police corruption issues.
