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 Lead 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 prominent Boston law firm 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, value, defend, and ultimately settle 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 their 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.
