Leonard Spada is the founder of Spada Law Group LLC. Upon graduating from Boston College Law School in 1991, Len accepted a prestigious one year appointment as a Judicial Law Clerk for the justices of the Massachusetts Superior Court. It was during this time that Len worked closely with the Judges of the Superior Court assisting them in deciding matters that came before the court in both civil and criminal trials. The clerkship was a valuable opportunity for Len to learn the practice of law from some of the finest legal minds in Massachusetts.


Upon completing his judicial clerkship, Len accepted a position as an Assistant District Attorney for Suffolk County, Massachusetts. During his tenure as an Assistant District Attorney, Len was Trial Counsel in over 100 jury trials as he prosecuted a wide range of misdemeanor and felony criminal cases.


In 1995, Len entered private practice, joining the large Boston law firm of Peabody & Arnold, where his practice focused exclusively on representing large insurance companies. During this time Len handled all aspects of defending personal injury lawsuits from the pre-trial discovery phase up to and including trial. It was here that Len gained valuable insight into the inner workings of how insurance companies investigate, valued, defended and ultimately settled lawsuits brought by injured individuals.


In August of 1998 Len, along with his partner, Vincent Zullo, formed Spada & Zullo in order to use his skills and insider insurance industry knowledge to begin representing injured individuals. Over the next 18 years, Spada & Zullo successfully represented thousands of individuals who had been injured due to other’s negligence, collecting tens of millions of dollars in settlement for its clients along the way. Len was responsible for all aspects of litigation and trial work at Spada & Zullo. Tragically, in June 2016, Len’s partner and dear friend, Vincent Zullo, passed away unexpectedly and Len reorganized Spada & Zullo, into Spada Law Group LLC.


Len has been named a Massachusetts Super Lawyer as published in Boston Magazine for four consecutive years (2013-2016) in the area of Personal Injury Law. Super Lawyers rates lawyers across the country and recognizes no more than the top 5 percent of lawyers in each state. Attorneys are selected using a patented rigorous, multiphase process that includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Len also has a “Superb” rating of “10” on , which rates attorney based in part on public data collected on each attorney. Len is also a proud member of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys.

Auto Accident
Not even sure where to begin.. I can’t say enough about Attorney Spada and his team. From the very first meeting I knew I was hiring Len to represent me. My auto accident case was one of the worst experiences I’ve had thus far yet Len and his assistant Joan eased any worries I had going into the process, and it was a lengthy one. Anytime I reached out to them I got immediate responses, if not from Attorney Spada himself his assistant Joan. They left no question or concern unanswered and always made me feel confident in their endless attention to my case. They truly went above and beyond an expectations my husband and I had. Not only did they give me the best representation I could have imagined they also became like family. Toward the later end of my case is when COVID arrived yet the communication never skipped a beat. They have a wonderful social distancing system which utilizes ZOOM meetings. Let me tell you it was awesome. I can remember when my case was wrapping up I told Attorney Spada and Joan how much I was going to miss them and our constant communication and it still rings true now. I could continue with just how amazing my experience was but I’m pretty sure whomever reads this review will understand. Attorney Spada, Joan and the entire team are top notch and highly recommended . Thank you Len and Joan

Car Accident Representation
Spade Law Group is simply the best. From Len to the intake consultant, everyone is involved and everyone cares! Attorney Spada and his team got me the settlement that I deserved after consulting several lawyers, Len was the one. They knew EVERYTHING about my claim and they knew who I was. Robyn even asked about my kids when I would call. I recommend them to EVERYONE. It’s what a law firm should be.

Very happy client
I am 48 yes old and never hired an attorney before a good friend of mine referred me to Spada law firm after I was involved in a bad car accident. This accident caused serious bodily injury and Len Spada walked me through this process with the help of his amazing team . It was a long road to recovery but this firm stayed with me all the way and made sure I got the best medical team and bills were payed and the fought for me in court . We won our case I am fully healed and well compensated . If you want a lawyer the works for you and that will hold those responsible that have harmed you well then go with Spada law they are the real deal...

Amazing, professional, tough... all you want in an attorney!
We cannot say enough good things about Leonard, Joan Johnson and the entire staff at Spada Law Group. They truly know what they're doing, were tremendously helpful, very professional and did not take "No" for an answer. I highly recommend calling them should you ever be in the need for an attorney. Personally, we will only call them from now on.

Great Customer Service
My family was having an issue related to Education law, not an area of specialty for Spada Law Group, but I took a chance and reached out. The response and advice I received was more than I could have anticipated. From the initial phone call with the office staff, Leonor, to the personal contacts Attorney Spada leveraged to provide me with a list of several reputable special education attorneys that would be able to help my family, the response was incredible. I felt that the staff took a sincere interest in my issue and went above and beyond to try to provide me with appropriate resources who may be able to resolve the issues my family was dealing with. People turn to attorney’s during difficult times in their lives and Spada Law Group provided incredible and compassionate service during a difficult time for my family.

When I called Len Spada's office I was greeted by Mykala who not only took all my information about my injury but also was very compassionate and caring. She took time to listen and allowed me to vent at times. My phone calls were with either Makayla or Robin. They kept me informed but also checked on me regularly to see how I was progressing. I looked forward to hearing from them as they were always very caring. I also look forward to receiving Len Spada's newsletter each month. It has a personal message and information regarding various life issues. I sit & read it from cover to cover. I have not met Len Spada or his staff but I would love to meet them & thank them personally. I was able to heal without worry while they advocated for me. I am so very grateful.

Shoulder injury
They were very helpful and caring throughout the process. Even when my doctors office did not bill the correct insurance company they were there to fix that. I would highly recommend attorney Spada to anyone with a personal injury.

Great guy with a great team!
Len is a great attorney and a great person. My mother (70) had a fall accident in a coffee shop and I need someone who knew what they were dealing with. I did a search on the internet for an attorney that dealt with this kind of thing, and I came across Spada Law Group. I gave them a call and spoke with a very friendly and knowledgeable woman named Robyn. She took my information and passed it along to Len Spada. He immediately gave me a call back and made a special trip out to meet us at my mother's house at a time that was convenient for me (after I got out of work). He sat down and took all of her details about the incident. He was very patient and honest with her (she is getting forgetful in her older age). Right up front he told us, "he will look into it and do his best to help her in anyway he could, and that he would not charge her any fees unless the case evolved into something. If this was a case that went somewhere and was worth his while, he would get a percentage", (and I would expect nothing less. why wouldn't he, this is how he makes his living just like you and I have to make a living). I found him to be a great guy very up front personable and honest, which I appreciated. Long story short, he and is team did a good amount of work on this. They were extremely responsive and helpful anytime I had a question during the process. After a lot of discussion with the insurance companies in question (of which Spada Law Group handled all of this) they reached out to my mother and I, to let us know that they were able to recover some insurance money that would cover my mother's medical bills, and gave her a little something in the end, but this particular case wasn't worth a long drawn out battle, and I agreed and totally understood. They did not charge her any fees for any of the work that they did do, they paid the medical bills that was owed to my mother's medical expenses that were covered by her insurance company, and then gave her a check for the balance that was left over. I can't say enough great things about these people. Len is one of the good guys, and his staff are great friendly people as well. I would recommend him to anyone I know that need an attorney when they are in a situation like my mother was in.

Manufacturing Technology Leader
I was rear ended while stopped in traffic, and sustained a severe case of whiplash and headaches as a result. I was treated at a facility for 6 months, but the problem was not resolved. My focus shifted, due to having cancer at the time, requiring surgery and follow up procedures during the next year. My neck problems were still quite seroius, so I sought additional treatment from another medical provider, as soon as I was able. The insurance company would not take into consideration, that my temporary lapse in treatment for whiplash, was due to another important health issue. They would not cooperate at any level. Mr. Spada and his team were terrific! His staff is knowledgeable, friendly and courteous, and their timely progress updates on my case were very comforting, during a difficult time in my life. Through extensive research, Mr. Spada cited a similar case, and presented it to the court. As a result, Mr. Spada proved that the insurance company's interpretation of the law was wrong, and the case was resolved in my favor. Many thanks to The Spada Law Group, for their outstanding service and attention to detail, on a very difficult case.
