    Attorney Profile

    Madison S. Spach, Jr., is a founding member of Spach, Capaldi & Waggaman, LLP, which is located in Newport Beach, California. Representing a variety of clients in business transaction matters, including lenders, guarantors, general contractors and borrowers, Mr. Spach has gained 28 years of experience in litigation. The primary focus of his practice is on real estate, construction and complex business litigation, and he serves clients throughout the Southern California area.

    In 1974, Mr. Spach received an undergraduate degree from Duke University. Able to speak English, French and Russian, he later received a Master of Arts in Slavic languages and literatures from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1977. Mr. Spach then went on to attend Duke University School of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 1980. He is admitted to practice in California.

    In addition to litigation, Mr. Spach also has experience in dealing with disputes through arbitration. He has represented a number of matters at both the trial and appeals levels in state and federal courts. Working with lenders, many of his cases involve competing creditors' claims, receiverships and lender-liability filings, and throughout his career, he has become knowledgeable of bankruptcy proceedings, representing and assisting both creditors and borrowers throughout the process.

    Mr. Spach has been involved in a number of forums and panels involving various legal matters. For a number of years, he served as a director for the Orange County Bankruptcy Forum. He was also a panel member for programs that discussed electronic discovery and digital evidence, and he has used that experience to enhance his practice, counseling clients who are involved in cases that concern electronic discovery under federal and California laws. As a testament to the regard in which he is held by fellow professionals, Mr. Spach has also received an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell.
