Best Brooklyn Criminal Lawyers

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 it’s 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 prosecutors 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 prosecutions 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.

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 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 100’s 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.

Can I talk to the police if I am careful not to reveal anything incriminating?

We don’t recommend you talk to the police. You should only say that you want to speak to your attorney.
Many people think they are obligated to speak to the police. The fact is, you don’t have to. If you are being charged with a crime, and are being interrogated, you have the right to protect yourself from self incrimination. We don’t recommend you try and outsmart the police. Many people think the police questions are harmless, and decide to talk to them. This is a bad idea, and any Brooklyn criminal attorney will tell you the same. Police tactics are designed to get you to reveal things that may incriminate you. There are many ways things you say can be used against you. When the police want to talk to you, remain silent and ask for your criminal defense attorney.

Do I need a Brooklyn criminal attorney if I am charged with a minor crime?

To be frank, regardless of whether it’s a felony or misdemeanor, you need an attorney. While some misdemeanors can be handled on your own, or with a public defender, it’s recommended you hire a private attorney. No one wants to spend any time in jail, and hiring your own private attorney can make the difference. In addition to the punishment attached to offenses, an arrest/conviction for a misdemeanor can have a permanent impact on your life.
Some people assume that certain offenses are minor and will have no impact on your life. As a result, they think they don’t need to hire a Brooklyn criminal attorney. In reality, any time you’re dealing with a criminal accusation – the impact can be permanent, and you want an attorney who gets it. Bottom line, it’s important to have an attorney at your side the whole time – when dealing with any criminal defense accusations.

Do I need an attorney if I plan to plead guilty?

You should never plea guilty, without an attorney advising you. At the very least, you should hire a public defender and get his/her advice before entering a guilty plea. You should contact an attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney can help you stay out of jail if you are arrested, and may be able to get some, or all, of the charges against you dismissed.

The police have contacted you, our Brooklyn criminal lawyers can help

It’s ALWAYS a good idea to have an attorney present any time you speak with the police. Even if you haven’t committed the crime they’re accusing you of, it’s wise to have your own private Brooklyn criminal attorney to help and represent you. Even if you’ve been arrested, it’s even MORE important to have an attorney at your side. If you’re arrested, you should not say a word to the police except to ask for a criminal lawyer to represent you.
