Our NYC criminal lawyers will defend you

When you retain a private NYC criminal lawyer, he/she can question the officers who collected evidence, and conduct a thorough investigation. If the evidence is tainted, the attorney can have it thrown out of court. Having an attorney who is WILLING to go far for you, is important when your future is on the line. It’s important you never plead guilty to a criminal charge when you’re innocent. Criminal records can have a huge impact on your life. It could be grounds for denial of government benefits, employment, housing, credit, and more.

Going to court can be frustrating, especially when you’re facing serious criminal charges. NYC prosecutors are trying VERY HARD to reduce crime, and one of the ways they do this is by enforcing heavy punishments. When you have an aggressive criminal defense attorney, you have a better chance of fighting your felony and misdemeanor.

Our Philosophy

We treat each and every single person like family. It’s that simple. It’s why we succeed. Our team of attorneys are all united by this common belief. We’ve brought together some of the brightest minds in the country, who work for you on your case. The government is often overzealous in its prosecution of people accused of a crime – at times like this, you need a criminal attorney who understands how to be aggressive. Our law firm is the shield that protects you from the prosecutors. Often, most cases come down to evidence, allegations, and potential political pressure that prosecutors face internally. Sometimes, the truth is irrelevant. With this in mind, our NYC criminal defense lawyers focus on crafting a unique strategy for every case. It means striking down evidence where necessary, so no case is successfully brought against you. If needed, at times, it might mean filing an appeal if we feel the judge is being unfair and harsh. Bottom line, we provide the highest level of defense to each and every client.

We handle a variety of cases, ranging from misdemeanors to white collar crimes

Our white collar lawyers focus on criminal investigations and cases all across the country. Our attorneys have experience helping clients deal with major felonies, ranging from wire/mail fraud to complex financial crimes. If you’re facing criminal charges, you’re at risk of losing your freedom, and liberties. The stakes are VERY high. You need a criminal defense attorney who has skills, judgement, and can help you. Our goal is to get you the best possible disposition.

The Spodek Law Group has several locations throughout NYC, and we offer virtual consultations as well. We’re here to help 24/7. Regardless of the complexity of your alleged crime, our NYC criminal attorneys are here to help you and advise you. Our firm has been interviewed by major organizations like FOX News, NYPOST, and other publications.

The Spodek Law Group has over 50 years of combined experience helping clients nationwide. Many attorneys refer us clients because they trust us to help their clients and friends. We treat each and every client with respect. We don’t take a cookie-cutter approach to handling legal issues. We work with our clients to help them understand all the potential ramifications they face. Our #1 objective is getting the charges against you dismissed. Regardless of how complex your case is, we’re here to help you. Get a risk free consultation today.

Why shouldn’t I settle for a public defender?

Public defenders are necessary to the legal system, but they don’t always provide the possible defense. Public defenders work for the state, and you have to wonder what their level of willingness is to fight and protect you. Often, the crime is without a victim, and in some cases might be “overstated.” Public defenders work in just one court, and sometimes become an ally of the local court officials. We recommend you never accept a public defender when being accused of a criminal charge, if it’s possible for you to hire a private NYC criminal attorney.

Anyone in the state of New York who is facing criminal charges should contact our New York criminal defense attorneys and get a professional consultation about their case. We’re familiar with how the federal and state courts work, and will always provide unbiased advice on your case. More importantly, we’ll explain how our track record – aligns with your case, and how we can help you avoid criminal charges, and a permanent criminal record. Let us help you – by allowing us to offer our professional expertise and knowledge, and to ensure your rights are protected.

The private criminal defense lawyer you hire should be someone who is knowledgable and has experience defending clients in similar situations. Not all criminal defense lawyers are experienced in both state and federal courts. Because of this, you want to make sure the NYC criminal attorney you hire is best suited for your case.

What should I expect from a criminal attorney representing me?

So much of legal practice involves planning for numerous scenarios, evaluating options and risk assessment. This means that your attorney needs to listen to your situation, and understand the probability of all the scenarios manifesting. He, or she, needs to evaluate the pros and cons with you, and properly assess risks involved and communicate with you clearly. It’s expected that your attorney maintain confidentiality, and that all communications with him, or her, should be kept confidential. When you hire the Spodek Law Group, you should expect a criminal defense attorney that is knowledgable of the law, and has experience handling the type of charges you are facing, as well as experience in the court where the charges are filed. Most importantly, you should expect a criminal defense lawyer who is a skilled negotiator and litigator – who can defend you, and fight for you. Not all criminal defense lawyers in NYC are skilled in both state and federal courts, so it’s important you hire the right firm – for your case. At Spodek Law Group, our NYC criminal attorneys have experience practicing law in all 5 boroughs, and have immense experience handling federal cases nationwide. We are seasoned litigators. We take a pro-active role in helping clients, which means helping you plan alternative scenarios, evaluating your options, and providing adequate risk assessment. It means our NYC criminal lawyer will listen to your situation, and he/she will help you understand the possible scenarios and risks you face, in addition to helping you find a path forward.

What should you do when facing criminal accusations?

Every single client deserves honesty. Every single client should know what he/she potentially faces, before hiring a private criminal defense attorney in NYC/Los Angeles. This seems fair and simple, but isn’t always the case. Most criminal defense lawyers will take on ANY client, regardless of whether they can actually help. That’s not us. We only take on clients who we think, we can help. We are selective about the number of clients we work with, and only work with clients we can truly help.

We offer a risk free consultation, in person, or over the phone. During the consultation, you can ask us anything you’d like – regardless of how long it takes. We encourage you to ask us the tough questions which allow us to demonstrate our understanding of the type of legal situation you’re in.

Frequently Asked Questions

If i’m accused of a federal crime, should I go with a government appointed defenders?

Government appointed defense lawyers are generally acceptable, but not necessarily the answer. You have the right to legal counsel, as enshrined in our constitution. The obvious caveat is, that government appointed lawyers are often overworked, and underpaid relative to the difficult workload they’re dealing with. As a result, it’s recommended that you hire a private criminal defense attorney who can provide the highest levels of service.

What’s the difference between the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the state prosecutor’s office?

The U.S. Attorney’s office represents the federal government in cases. These cases arise from federal laws created by Congress. These cases are held in federal courthouses throughout the country. State, and local, prosecutors, represent the state for cases that arise under state law. Occasionally, federal and state laws may overlap – creating simultaneous federal and state criminal defense cases.
