Chris SpringA Former Prosecutor Fighting For You

Attorney Chris Spring owns and operates Spring & Spring, which provides aggressive and sophisticated representation to criminal defendants and individuals who are the targets of criminal investigations in Eastern Massachusetts. He represents clients charged with every type of crime in superior court and district court. As an assistant district attorney earlier in his career, Attorney Spring led investigations that resulted in the prosecution of hundreds of criminal cases. As a defense attorney, he now uses that experience and knowledge to attack the government’s case from the beginning of the investigation until the end of the trial.

Attorney Spring grew up in Billerica, Massachusetts, and graduated from Billerica Memorial High School. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of New Hampshire and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Notre Dame Law School.

After graduating from Notre Dame Law School, Attorney Spring was hired by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office. He worked as an assistant district attorney for more than three years. He began by prosecuting cases in Middlesex County’s 11 district courts, focusing on street-level drug dealing cases, drunk driving (also known as operating under the influence of alcohol or OUI) cases, domestic violence cases, and sexual assault cases. After a successful district court career, Attorney Spring was promoted to superior court where he prosecuted cases in Lowell Superior Court and Cambridge Superior Court (which is now Woburn Superior Court). As a superior court prosecutor, Attorney Spring’s caseload consisted of drug trafficking cases, robbery and home invasion cases, and cases involving violent street crime, including sex offenses, which often resulted in catastrophic injuries to the victims.

After leaving the District Attorney’s Office, Attorney Spring worked for a large Boston law firm specializing in civil defense work. One year later, Attorney Spring left the Boston law firm and founded Spring & Spring and has represented criminal defendants ever since. He has convinced juries to find his clients not guilty of nearly every type of crime, including child rape, indecent assault and battery, stalking, criminal harassment, larceny, operating under the influence (of both alcohol and drugs), motor vehicle homicide, aggravated assault and battery (causing serious bodily injury), assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, restraining order violations, drug dealing and drug possession offenses, gun offenses, and domestic violence offenses.

Attorney Spring has argued more than 150 cases in front of Massachusetts juries. He has argued before the Supreme Judicial Court and the Massachusetts Appeals Court.

If you hire Attorney Spring, he will personally defend you at every stage of your case. You will not be handled by an associate, a paralegal, or a secretary. You will have Attorney Spring’s cell phone number and you will have access to him nights, weekends, and holidays. At the outset of the case, Attorney Spring will travel to your home for a free consultation to review the charges against you and discuss your possible defenses. During this initial consultation, Attorney Spring will tell you exactly how much he will charge to represent you from the beginning of your case through the trial, and there will never be additional fees. Attorney Spring accepts personal checks.

Attorney Spring takes cases from every city and town in Middlesex, Essex, Worcester, Norfolk, and Suffolk Counties.
