Spodek Law Group Is Your Defense Against Serious Federal Criminal Charges

Federal criminal charges can be serious, but Spodek Law Group will provide the legal defense you need to have the best outcome possible. At Spodek Law Group, our Atlanta Federal Criminal Lawyers offer our clients premium service and superior results. Our mission is to ensure that our clients preserve their liberty while minimizing future legal exposure. Our firm will defend you against even the most serious federal criminal charges.

Your Defense Against Federal Theft Charges

According to Cornell Law School, the law defines theft as taking another person’s property with the intent to permanently deprive them of it. Federal authorities become involved in theft cases when allegedly stolen property crosses state lines or they uncover records of text messages or email used in an alleged theft. At Spodek Law Group, we’ll rigorously defend you against federal theft charges by discovering evidence through a variety of means, including witness interviews, video analysis and digital investigation. We’ll determine the best defense for your case by examining the law as it applies to your situation.

Defending You Against Federal Weapons Charges

Federal authorities may bring weapons charges to cases of alleged illegal firearms possession, distribution or trafficking across state lines. The serious charge of federal firearms trafficking may apply when weapons cross national borders or a previous offender uses a weapon in the alleged commission of a crime. While federal weapons charges can be serious, resulting in extended prison sentences, our law firm will mount a vigorous defense on your behalf. If you’re facing charges of federal firearms trafficking, we’ll gather the evidence needed to defend your reputation and preserve your liberty.

Clearing Your Name of Federal Armed Robbery Charges

Federal authorities may upgrade charges of theft to the more serious charges of robbery when an alleged crime involves violence or the threat of violence. When firearms are involved, a federal charge of robbery can become armed robbery with a potential prison sentence of up to 20 years, according to Syracuse University. With help from Spodek Law Group, you could face reduced charges or avoid legal jeopardy altogether. Our firm will provide the legal counsel you need to understand your rights, defend your name in court and potentially stay out of prison.

Your Atlanta Federal Criminal Lawyers for Federal Drug Possession Charges

Possession of a controlled substance is one of the most common federal crimes in the U.S. legal system, and it can carry severe penalties. Drug possession charges may become federal when the alleged crime involves crossing state lines or other federal offenses. Even if you buy drugs in a state where they’re legal, you could face federal drug possession charges for carrying them in a state where they’re illegal. At Spodek Law Group, we’ll provide a robust defense in your federal trial for drug possession. With our representation, you’ll have a good shot at beating your charges and keeping your criminal record clear.

A Practiced Federal Drug Trafficking Attorney

Federal agencies may become involved in a drug trafficking case when controlled substances allegedly cross state lines or authorities discover email or SMS records of an alleged drug sale. Penalties for federal drug offenses depend on the amount of the drugs involved and the state where the crime has allegedly taken place. According to Seattle Pacific University, penalties can range from five to 20 years in federal prison, depending on the legal scheduling of the controlled substances and the prior criminal record of the accused. If you’re facing federal drug trafficking charges, we at Spodek Law Group will work diligently to defend your rights and keep you out of jail. Our firm is committed to providing exceptional legal representation to anyone caught in this unfortunate situation.

Reducing or Clearing Federal Cybercrime Charges

The FBI severely prosecutes internet crimes, which are crimes involving online identity theft, computer viruses, phishing scams and similar offenses. Federal cybercrime charges can carry penalties of 20 years or more in federal prison. The FBI may charge individuals under federal cybercrime laws even if the alleged crime were unintentional or a consequence of a less serious act such as online harassment. If the FBI has charged you with cybercrime, you can turn to Spodek Law Group for counsel from an experienced attorney.

The term “white-collar crime” is a catchall phrase that refers to most acts of financial fraud, including the defrauding of banks, mortgage companies, credit card companies and insurance agencies. From healthcare fraud to money laundering, federal white-collar crimes carry severe penalties and may result in lengthy prison sentences. Any financial crime that doesn’t involve violence or the threat of violence falls under the category of white-collar crime, according to Georgetown Law School. While penalties for these offenses can be severe, prison sentences usually take place in minimum-security federal facilities. Whether you’re facing charges from the FBI or the IRS, we at Spodek Law Group will ensure that you receive excellent legal representation.

When federal authorities charge you with a crime, your first reaction may be to panic. We want to assure you that help is available and that you need not worry. Call us today to schedule a consultation with a criminal defense attorney.

If you are charged with a federal crime in Atlanta, the clock is ticking. Very few cases make it to trial these days. In the same manner that a civil case can be settled before trial, criminal cases are now being resolved in 97 percent of federal cases with a plea bargain. Because a trial is no longer the main event, the need for the highest quality of representation during the early phases of the federal criminal process is of paramount importance.

How Can a Federal Defense Attorney Help Me Win?

In the criminal justice system, it is not always about winning or losing. There is a gray area where defendants may have been overcharged or may be guilty to a limited degree. It can be hard to prove all the surrounding circumstances and situations that led up to something. In these cases, negotiating the best plea bargain falls chiefly on the shoulders of competent counsel.
A skilled Atlanta defense attorney is able to whittle down the strength of the criminal case against you by defending against common federal prosecutor tactics. The federal prosecutor’s office works on such a high volume of cases that they are often without resources to build an honest prosecution. In these cases, they will substitute legitimate evidence and police work with tricks.
They may use inflammatory evidence to rile up jurors, make-weight hearsay evidence to pad up a weak case, or may even negate elements of a crime to make you look guilty by overlooking critical flaws in the theory. Only a skilled federal defense attorney can file the proper pre-trial motions and request the specific evidence from the prosecutor to weaken them. If the case is weak enough, it can even be dismissed for lack of evidence or probable cause.
A skilled defense attorney can even find technical errors that make a case invalid. If a search warrant listed the wrong time or date, this can be grounds to have any of this evidence suppressed. Knowing what nuances of the law are sticking in the courts to create defenses for you is the chief benefit of a skilled attorney.
There are plenty of attorneys who go through the motions and are only good at filling out forms. A talented federal criminal defense attorney has the creative skills, education, experience, and confidence to mitigate or eliminate any charges.

How Does the Federal Justice System Work?

The Feds are chiefly interested in large cases that justify the expenditures of their time. Whether your case is one of an entire class of cases that they picked off or involved a large scale of something, the federal authorities are always trying to make big news.
The FBI, DEA, ATF, CIA, IRS, and ICE, all work together to make large drug seizures, investigate illegal funds, crack down on fraud, and to create commercials out of large busts to sell their services to the public. They use this propaganda and arrest statistics to seek more funding for their work, which ultimately leads to promotions, raises, extra benefits, etc.
Like any corporate slave, they want their work to be as easy as possible. Therefore, they go after the lowest-hanging fruit or harder cases if there is a big bounty. They have many nefarious tools to investigate people as exposed by Wikileaks. They can secretly tap your phone, computers, and other devices to record everything you do.
They can even enter your property based on mere suspicion and search the premises using a sneak-and-peak warrant. These post-9/11 tactics completely subvert the protections of the 4th Amendment right against unlawful search and seizure.
The Feds infiltrate motorcycle gangs, analyze the revenue of large companies, mass incarcerate immigrants, and carry out elaborate drug sting operations. One thing that the Feds are known for is going over the top to create Hollywoodesque setups to bust the bad guys. If you are being charged in such a setup, you may see financial motives behind it and overzealous tactics already coming to light.
Only an extremely wise and skilled federal criminal defense attorney can save you from the lifelong socio-economic consequences of a federal conviction. If you are being prosecuted in the Atlanta area, you need to find an attorney who spots all the errors and is instantly able to come up with multiple strategies to weaken or defeat the case.
