The Skateboarding Punk Rock Lawyer
Stuck in Vermont 302
12/14/12: Spencer P. Crispe is a seventh-generation Vermonter and the fourth generation in his family to practice law at the Crispe & Crispe Law Firm in Brattleboro. Unlike most attorneys, Crispe is as comfortable in the mosh pit and at the skatepark as he is in the courtroom. He uses his knowledge of the law to promote the ideals of hardcore punk such as civil rights, social justice and equality.
In November, Crispe celebrated 20 years of being straight-edge (a completely drug, alcohol and smoke-free lifestyle) with a show at 242 Main in Burlington and a performance by his hardcore punk band My Revenge!. In December, Eva caught up with Crispe at Talent Skatepark in South Burlington for "Old Guy Skate Night".
