Mr. Lappas has been the worst attorney I've ever retained for the following reasons:
Poor communication - Rarely contacted me to discuss the case and the time we did talk was brief. He seemed to have little to no interest in the case.
Did not argue the facts - There were facts of the case he didn't argue despite my wishes. He seemed to have little experience relating to criminal law and the powers of different law enforcement agencies in Pennsylvania.
Inability to properly vet expert witnesses - He put an expert witness on the stand during trial that he only talked with for 10 mins in the hallways before putting him on the stand.
If at the time I was able to fire him and get my money back I would have hired another attorney. Hiring this attorney was one of the bigger mistakes in my life. I should have trusted my feelings more at the time.

Spero is a tireless advocate for the downtrodden and people without a voice. His hard work and dedication are an inspiration to lawyers who have had the pleasure of knowing him and/or seeing him in action in our community. He is brilliant, accomplished, and a leader in his field.

Spero Lappas is a legend. When I was a young public defender in 1990 he was representing individuals who had suffered serious civil rights violations and was winning cases no one else had the guts to take. He has seen everything. Nothing will shake him. He is an excellent attorney who deserves an excellent rating on this site.
