After receiving his Juris Doctor degree, Attorney Spaccaferro served in a number of legal capacities including Chief of Staff, Acting General Counsel and Principal Consultant for a variety of companies.

He has also served as an Assistant Public Defender not only in Illinois, but in Arizona as well, where he represented clients charged with serious offenses in Felony Specialty Courts including Mental Health Court, Veteran’s Court, and Drug Court and where he focused on helping clients living with substance use and mental health disorders navigate the justice system in order to achieve recovery and stability, while avoiding jail.

In order to stay current on the law and provide the best possible legal representation to his clients, Attorney Spaccaferro has attended numerous trainings and seminars provided by the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP), National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NADCL), Illinois Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (IACDL), and the Arizona Public Defender Association (APDA).
