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.

Strategies for Defending Sex Crimes

Some criminal or sexual crime defense lawyers always wait until the formal charges have been opened to commence their representation or defense. This is not the case with us. We believe the allegations of sexual misconduct always demand an early intervention as well as an independent investigation. This proactive, aggressive approach has awarded us with a proven record in the defense for our highly-esteemed clients. The strategies that we often employ to defend our clients include (but not always limited to):

1. Negotiation with Law Enforcement

Long Island law enforcement department always takes the sexual crimes seriously. In most cases, they always arrest the people to question them later. However, the only thing that you need to do to have the charges dropped is to have our experienced attorneys say the other side of the story.

2. Private Investigation

Most accusers always misinterpret many sexual situations. In most cases, they identify the wrong person by mistake. In rare occasions, they often engage in lying. We always work with the best private investigators based in Long Island. We always investigate the accuser, the crime scene, as well as the witnesses. If a witness or an accuser has a bias or is not credible, we will often uncover it to change the direction of the case. The investigations conducted by our experts often turn up certain conditions such as the lighting or distance from the crime scene that often makes it difficult for the eye witness unreliable.

3. Private Polygraph Testing (lie detector)

Polygraph tests are one of the most common tools used by law enforcement agents to lure you to apologize for the crime. These tests are often used in trials to prove that the accused is guilty. However, the private polygraph tests are often one of the most useful tools to fight sex crime cases in Long Island. The prosecutor has shoed the result if the client shows that they are telling the truth. We will keep them private if the results are unfavorable for the customer case. The prosecutor will be prevented from knowing if the test was conducted.

4. Pre-trial Motions and Advocacy

Most Long Island sex crimes cases never proceed to trial sessions. On rare occasions, the accused will plead guilty to beg for a less lenient sentence. However, you can always work to get the evidence suppressed with the most proactive defense attorney. On the other hand, our law firm will convince the prosecutor that the case is too weak or the client is innocent.
