I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.
I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.

Thank you Alex and Todd!


We understand that hiring a criminal defense law firm is not an easy decision. If you’re accused of committing a crime, or breaking the law, you need an attorney who is available 24/7 to help you. The law firm you hire is crucial. The firm is responsible for defending you, but more importantly – is your advocate and is here to help you plan out your life – in case the worst happens. Unlike other criminal defense law firms – we offer flexible payment plans, and charge reasonable fees – with exception white glove service. Our firm has been highly rated by top lawyer ranking websites like Avvo, Yelp, Google Places, and others. We understand how complicated it is to hire a criminal defense attorney. We have over 50 years of combined experience handling major crimes. Your future is important – and if you hire the wrong law firm – it can be over.

No two cases are alike

Most law firms will try to implement a cookie cutter strategy to your case in order to save time. The issue is its hard to anticipate the prosecutors strategy – they have virtually unlimited resources. What you can anticipate is that the prosecutor will preserve his reputation – and do everything absolutely possible to win. It means sometimes – they’ll resort to underhanded tactics. At the Spodek Law Group – we’ve handled many types of criminal defense cases. Everything we do is focused on getting you amazing results. We understand the difficult of what you’re going through – and we’re here to help you. If you’re accused of a crime, please schedule a consultation today with one of our NYC criminal lawyers.

Our NYC criminal lawyers will defend you

When you hire a private criminal defense attorney, he, or she, can question the authorities on all aspects of your case. The defense attorney will conduct an investigation on your behalf, and look into how evidence was collected – and move to prevent the case from going to trial. Having an attorney who is willing to go to bat for you is important when your future is on the line. It’s important you never plead guilty when you’re innocent – without first hiring a criminal defense lawyer. Criminal records can have a huge impact on your life. It can result in denial of government benefits, housing, employment, and more. Going to court can be very frustrating – but when you’re facing serious criminal charges – with prosecutors trying very hard to convict you – there is no alternative to hiring a criminal defense attorney.

We treat everyone like family. It’s that simple. We give you the same advice, and work just as hard for you, as if you were family. Our team of NYC criminal lawyers are all united by this belief. Our team consists of some of the brightest minds in the country. The government is often overzealous when prosecuting people – and because of this, you want a criminal attorney who understands how to be aggressive. Our law firm is your shield. We protect you from the prosecutors. We do this by looking for evidence, analyzing allegations, and diffusing potential political pressure that prosecutors are facing internally. Sometimes, the truth is irrelevant. Prosecutors simply want to win. With this in mind, our NYC criminal defense attorney focus on creating a unique strategy for you. It means we work to strike down evidence whenever – and wherever, it’s possible. Our goal is to ensure no case is brought against you. If needed, this could also mean filing an appeal if we feel the judge is being unfair. Bottom line, our NYC criminal lawyers provide the highest level of defense for every single client.

What should I expect from a criminal attorney representing me?

Most of the job – when it comes to practicing law – involves planning scenarios, evaluating outcomes, and assessing your risk. Your criminal attorney needs to understand and comprehend your situation, and convey the probability of the scenarios manifesting to you. He, or she, needs to evaluate all the pros and cons of the situation – and properly assess the risks involved – and communicate them with you. It’s expected that your NYC criminal lawyer maintain confidentiality, and that all information with him/her be kept confidential. When you hire the Spodek Law Group – you should expect a criminal attorney who understands the law – and has experience handling the type of charges you’re facing – as well as experience in the court where the charges were filed. Most importantly, you should expect a criminal defense attorney who is both a negotiator and litigator. You want a criminal lawyer who can defend you and fight for you. Not all criminal defense lawyers in NYC are skilled in both state and federal courts. It’s important you hire the right firm for your case. At Spodek Law Group, our criminal attorneys have experience practicing law nationwide, and have experience handling federal cases nationwide.

Our Philosophy / Who We Are

It’s simple. Every single client deserves honesty and white glove service.

Our lawyers have experience handling criminal defense cases nationwide, ranging from Los Angeles to NYC.

We are selective about the number of clients we work with, and only work with clients who we can truly help. This is different from other law firms, who take on every single client – irrespective of the outcome.

When you reach out to our law firm – the process begins with a risk free consultation in person, or over the phone. During this consultation – you can ask us anything – regardless of how long it takes. We encourage you to take this opportunity to ask the tough questions – which allow us to show you our understanding of the issue you’re facing. We are available to help you 24/7.

NYC Criminal Defense Lawyers FAQ

Do I need a criminal defense attorney?

In NY – if you’re charged with a felony or misdemeanor, it is your constitutional right to have an attorney present with you at all stages of your case after the arrest. If you’re charged with a non-criminal violation, like disorderly conduct/harassment, or a traffic offense, you don’t necessarily need an NYC criminal attorney. Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney – however, is in your best interests. You want an attorney present to represent you in order to ensure your legal rights are not violated – and that you proceed in the best way possible. If you hire an appropriate attorney, it is possible to avoid going to trial and resolving your case. Many people assume that just because they’re guilty – they should plead guilty, and this simply isn’t the case. Without an attorney by your side advising you – you might accidentally plead guilty when you could – in reality – win the case. An experienced criminal defense attorney could help you negotiate a plea to a lesser charge, which could eliminate your criminal exposure. At Spodek Law Group, we pride ourselves on a teamwork oriented approach. Every case is assigned to one of our partners, and we have a team of top associates who are here to help you. Our firm has excellent work ethics, and we constantly hold firm meetings in order to discuss and address all of our cases. In the event of an emergency – we have a full team of lawyers available to help you.

There is no set formula on how often you should hear from your attorney. The key to a successful relationship is communication with your law firm. Whenever there is an important update in your case, you will be notified and contacted through our case management system. It means even if there’s a call to discuss discovery on your case, or results of other investigations we are doing – bottom line, we are always here to help you and check in with you.

How can I get the best outcome in my NYC criminal defense case?

In order for your criminal defense attorney to help you get the best possible outcome, you need to be honest with your NYC criminal defense lawyer. You have to be available when your lawyer needs you, and you should work with your attorney to understand the evidence against you – and possible defenses to your case so you can make informed decisions on how to proceed. You should follow your attorneys advice when it comes to things like drug treatment, mental health, and other things. The best NYC criminal lawyers will take your case seriously and will work very hard to achieve the best possible outcome. If there is a problem you have, such as a drug/alcohol problem, you should speak to your attorney immediately so he/she can get you into a treatment program. You should be available when your criminal defense lawyer needs you. Your attorney can also help you obtain character reference letters in order to help you get the best outcome in your criminal defense case. Other things you should can do, is appear in court whenever you’re required to be there, you should go to school or be employed so you are a productive member of society.

What should I bring to my initial meeting with my criminal lawyer?

You should bring any, and all, documents that you have regarding the arrest or investigation – including copies of things like the charges filed against you, subpoenas, appearance tickets, info about the items sized, names of witnesses, and any other information that might be factually relevant and helpful to your NYC criminal lawyer. At your initial meeting, your criminal attorney will begin to formalize a strategy regarding your case – and potential defenses available to you.  How long the case takes will vary depending on the nature of the charges, the number of people charged, where you’re charged, and the complexity of the case.

What should I do if the police or law enforcement agents want to speak to me?
