    21 years

I began working in the personal injury area of the law over fourteen years ago as a law clerk for the law firm of Lopatin, Miller, Freedman, Bluestone, Herskovic & Domol during my first year of law school at Wayne State University School of Law. After graduating and passing the Bar, I was asked to leave the Lopatin, Miller firm by Stuart Freedman and Maurice Herskovic, who were leaving to start their own firm. I became a partner with Stuart and Morey in 2009 and remained at Freedman, Herskovic & Spagnuolo until March 2014. In March of 2014, I was asked to join Bone, Bourbeau, Bourbeau & Lizza, PLLC as a partner and on March 24, 2104 the new firm Bone, Bourbeau, Lizza & Spagnuolo, PLLC was formed.  On September 1, 2017 I left Bone, Bourbeau, Lizza & Spagnuolo, PLLC and opened my own firm, the Macomb Law Group.

 

My main focus is on automobile cases, both first party, which is a case against your own insurance company for medical benefits, wage loss benefits, and other benefits you may be entitled to under the Michigan No-Fault Law, and third party cases, which is an action against the person who caused the automobile accident. I have also successfully handled medical malpractice, products liability, general negligence, and premises liability claims.

 

I am or have been a member of the State Bar, Oakland County Bar Association, Macomb County Bar Association, American Association for Justice, Michigan Association of Justice - Sustaining Member, Italian American Bar Association of Michigan, Delta Theta Phi Law Fraternity, Families Exploring Down Syndrome, ARC Services of Macomb, Brain Injury Association of Michigan and has been a life member of the Disabled American Veterans since being Honorably Discharged from the United States Marine. I also am a member of the board for the Chippewa Valley Education Foundation, a non-profit that raises money to help further education in the Chippewa Valley School District.

Best Lawyer!!
James Spagnuolo treated me like family! Since the beginning of my accident, he stepped in and made sure I was taken care of. Today, my family and I can live comfortably because Jame Spagnuolo worked his butt off for us.

Getting The Best!
After an accident that took my husbands life, I was introduced to Mr. James Spagnuolo. He is hard working, personable, understanding, and keeps you informed of what is happening with your case. He won my case, represented me with the Magistrate and told me I could call him anytime. He is true to his word. James has since represented me and again won my case. If you want a Lawyer that listens, is heartfelt, works very hard and treats you with concern and understanding, Hire James. I continue to recommend James and know that when I need help I can turn to him, trust him and know the firm is there for me.
