Best Brooklyn Criminal Defense Lawyers and Brooklyn Criminal Attorneys

If you’re accused of a crime, it’s important to hire a Brooklyn criminal defense attorney. When your day in court finally arrives, you’ll be glad you hired a criminal lawyer at the Spodek Law Group to represent you. Any criminal case is complex. Throwing yourself at the mercy of the court isn’t the best idea. When you hire a Brooklyn criminal attorney, you’re hiring someone who understands what’s at stake, and how it will negatively impact you for the rest of your life.

We Have Experience Winning Challenging Cases

The Spodek Law Group has differentiated itself as a top-rated Brooklyn criminal defense law firm. We understand the prosecution will do EVERYTHING in its power to get the judge and jury to hand down the harshest sentence possible. Without a Brooklyn criminal lawyer on your side, the prosecution will take advantage of your lack of knowledge of the criminal penal code, and work to convict you. The Spodek Law Group has handled some of the toughest cases nationwide, and can help you with yours as well.

Hire a Private Brooklyn Criminal Attorney, Not a Public Defender

Before you enter a plea in court, it’s important you recognize that a public defender isn’t the best option. Most public defenders are appointed by the court, and as a result, are looking to retain their relationship with the court and the prosecutor’s office.

Often, public defenders will recommend you enter a plea bargain in order to end the case so they can keep moving. In some instances, if the prosecution’s case isn’t solid – a plea bargain may be offered, and perhaps should be taken. The prosecution prefers a plea bargain because taking a case to trial costs the state more money, and that’s not something they always want to spend. In this scenario, either your public defender or Brooklyn criminal attorney can negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecution.

If you are looking for a lawyer that listens, is aggressive where needed, and holds his word above all else, Todd is the best pick. I had hired multiple attorneys prior to hiring the Spodek Group for a white collar case. The first thing that stood out to me was the cost, as anyone going through the process and dealing with the system, money was tight at that time - especially after hiring and firing multiple lawyers. The cost was not as high as others which was definitely a plus. Todd's intake process was also unlike other attorneys. He took the time to actually listen. He cared. He was trying to put himself in my shoes while I was explaining the situation to him and he really took the time to understand the whole situation. Other lawyers will give you 15 mins and send you a retainer agreement. Not Todd, I think he spent almost two hours with me as I was explaining everything.Not only was he great during the onboarding process, he was supportive and very informative through the entire plea process and eventually sentencing. After hiring him, I asked if I should hire a prison consultant, he told me to save my money as he would do everything they would. He was right and held up to his word. Later on I would hear from others that went with the prison consultants that they were a waste of money - I am glad I listened to Todd!When it came time for sentencing, two days prior to sentencing, the prosecutor tried increasing my proposed prison time by almost double - apparently a normal move. Todd and his team worked with me non-stop through the weekend prior to sentencing to ensure that I was not given additional prison time. Again, he took the time to listen and came up with a strategy to explain the case with great detail.Unfortunately, I did plead guilty as that was my best option. Todd and his whole team wrote up nearly 300 pages of a summary of what happened and why I should not be given prison time. If I breakdown the amount I spent with Todd versus the amount of work that I saw being done, I am shocked I was not charged four times as much. The other benefit was, a lot of criminal defense lawyers were just a single attorney with a paralegal or two. Todd had a team of people that I dealt with (5-7 people that I interacted with), but he was ALWAYS accessible. It would never take him more than an hour to reply unless he was in court.I was sentenced to prison and I was emotionally distraught. Todd and his team did whatever they could even after sentencing to make sure I was alright. He personally stayed in touch with my family to ensure I was doing alright and offered support to them. Most lawyers would consider the job complete at sentencing, not Todd.After prison, Todd still spent time with me to make sure I was on the right track and avoiding any potential risks in the future. He has also been giving advice on how to navigate probation etc and has not been looking at the clock for billing.Although I wish I had never been arrested in the first place, I am glad I had Todd and his team in my corner. Without them I likely would have had to spend a lot more time in prison than I did.Thank you, Todd, and the entire Spodek Law team, for helping turn what was a nightmare into a manageable situation!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence.Thank you team!

I recently had Spodek Law Group represent me for a legal matter in NYC and I am thoroughly impressed with their services.Alex Zhik secured the best possible outcome for my case.It was a seamless journey from the initial consultation to the resolution of my legal matter. From the moment I spoke to Todd about my case, his enthusiasm to help was evident, setting a positive tone for the entire experience. The efficiency and professionalism displayed by the team is commendable.A particularly noteworthy aspect of their service is their user-friendly portal to upload your documents/evidence. This not only simplified the process, but showcases their commitment to streamline the client experience.Lastly, in an industry where legal fees can often be a concern, I found their pricing to be very reasonable, making needing legal assistance feel accessible and stress-free.I am grateful for their support and wouldn't hesitate to turn to them again in the future.

Hiring a public defender should be a last resort. Nationwide studies have shown that 85% of all defendants charged in criminal cases rely on public defenders. As a result, public defenders often have an overwhelming amount of cases. They may only have minutes to spend on each case. In contrast, your private criminal attorney will only be handling a few cases at a time. Private criminal attorneys have research witnesses, access to expert witnesses, and other professionals who they can call on to help with your case. Often, this can translate into dozens, or hundreds, of hours spent on your case. Often, the mere perception that you have a well-staffed team of attorneys helping you is enough to convince the prosecutor to back off – and be more lenient.
