Biography

The Hon. George V. Spanos (Ret.) was a judge for the Contra Costa County Superior Court. He was appointed to the bench by former Governor Gray Davis in 2000. At the time of his appointment, he filled the vacancy created by the death of the Hon. Robert McGrath (deceased). Spanos retired from the bench in 2017 and his vacancy was filled by the Hon. Leonard E. Marquez.

Spanos received his B.A. from the University of Maryland in 1970. He went on to earn his J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 1975.

Prior to his appointment to the bench, Spanos spent his entire legal career in private practice, where he specialized in business, real estate, employment law and breach of contract matters.
