I would highly recommend Michael Spano. I deal with attorneys quit often in my line of work and 99% of them fall into 1 of 2 categories. They take your money then you can never get them on the phone and get little communication or they communicate but they don't do a good job. Michael Spano both did a great job and took all my phone calls and kept me informed. Finally an attorney that I can feel like is working for me rather than paying someone then having to constantly chase after them for information (as if I work for them instead of them working for me).

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.

Mr Spano handled my felony weapons and traffic violation charge/case without ever meeting me. I was from out of State of New york. The rapport and trust exceeded my expectation. He kept me out of jail and felony conviction, He is treated me with honesty and respect without seeing my face. He kept me well informed and i had a good resolution of my case. I trusted him with my future and my life and he delivered. His experience as a one time district attorney and knowledge base i believe was the key. He was upfront with me as to my expectations , agreed to a payment plan and never harrassed me about payments. a little expensive but his services are worth every nickle and dime.

I strongly endorse Michael Spano. Michael is among the elite defense and trial attorneys in Central New York. I have witnessed him in trial on several occasions and always came away extremely impressed with his skill, knowledge, preparedness and advocacy. You can not find a better or more well-respected attorney than Michael.
