I went to Carlo Spiga for a consultation. I must say that he was fairly helpful, just average. The thing the bothered me the most is the fact that he was very condescending and patronizing. At any given opportunity he would make sure to point out how god gifted and smart he his without loosing the chance to belittle me. Once we started to talk about his rate I asked him if was possible to split the bill in a couple of installments he response was "I don't want to chase you around" .Mind you, I never met the guy before, first time.Perhaps I looked like a low life or a con-artist. At the point I just got up and walked away. I was offended about his response but again I should have got the hint that he was a self center idiot by the way he was talking all along. But I like to give people the benefit of the doubt to the end. If you want an advice never hire this guy. I can tell that his business is not doing good. His office was a mess. When I first walked in his office his paralegal was sleeping on a couch. After she saw me she got up right away and compose herself. Not much to do I guess. That is why he tried to charge me an unreasonable amount of money. DO NOT GO THERE. Save yourself time and money hire someone else not him! This is my experience.

I came to Spiga & Associates after a fight with my ex-wife led to bogus criminal charges, and I could not have found better attorneys. Carlo Spiga handled my case in court with ease - I ended up with one year of probation and then had my record expunged, so it's as if it never happened! He also helped me keep my insurance license and handled everything with the California Department of Insurance. The rate was reasonable, and I truly felt like the attorneys at Spiga & Associates cared about me and my case. Of course, I hope to never have to call on them again - but there's no doubt that if I or anyone I know is ever arrested, I will be in contact with Spiga & Associates right away.

I'm from out of state and was looking for a California Lawyer to represent my son who was charged with Burglary at the Van Nuys Courthouse. By luck I got Van Nuys criminal defense lawyer Carlo Spiga who has to be one of the top criminal defense lawyers in Los Angeles. He visited my son right away and was very accessible to my whole family. He got my son released with no bail and eventually got my son's case dismissed.
