I hired Mr. Sprano last December to represent my wife in a grand larceny case in Virginia. From the start he was very clear on what needed to be done and explained our options fully to help us prepare for the case. He managed to reduce the charge to petite larceny and no additional charges or penalty against my wife. His rate for handling our case was very reasonable and I would strongly recommend him to anyone who needs a competent attorney.

I hired Mike (and Kaveh Noorishad) last April shortly after being arrested for counterfeiting. I was originally looking at a worst case scenario of 5 years in a minimum security Federal prison. However, between the two of them, they negotiated a plea deal with an 18-month sentence cap and I was able to avoid Federal prosecution. Given the details of my case, I couldn't have hoped for a better result.

I had a felony case del with last year by Mr. Sprano. His firm was very responsive and helpful with all of my worries throughout my case. Mike told me what would happen and that's what did happen. He made all of the stress I built up in my mind much easier.

Mike Sprano is well known in Northern Virginia for his brilliant legal mind. He is highly respected by the Criminal Defense Bar, the Judges and the Prosecutors of Northern Virginia. He is my law partner and my husband but as his fellow colleagues have pointed out, he is well known for his integrity, his work ethic and his ability to produce outstanding results.

I endorse Michael Sprano without hesitation. He is an excellent criminal defense attorney, well-respected by the legal community and takes all of his cases seriously. Over the past few years, I witnessed his work ethic and commitment to getting the best results for his clients. Great lawyer.
