NYC Cyber-Harassment Lawyers

Cyber-harassment, or cyber-bullying as many people understand it to be, is one of the most common crimes among those who don’t want to show their face among others and for those who want to commit a crime against several people at one time. There are various types of cyber-harassment crimes that include sending unwanted emails or making derogatory comments on social media pages. These are crimes and can be punished in various ways depending on how long the crime has been committed and how it affects the victim. At times, the harassment can be so severe that it causes the person to commit suicide or commit some other type of harm to the body. This is common among older children and teenagers who don’t have anyone to talk to about the bullying issue.

Flaming is a common bullying tactic that is seen online. It’s when people spark fights by sending emails or by instant messaging people online or on social media pages. You might not intend to spark a large fight, but if more people are added to the conversation, then it can easily become a heated argument that hurts many people at one time. Denigration is a similar tactic. You put mean messages online through emails and instant messaging. You could also display messages on social media sites and websites. The messages are posted to make fun of someone else. Sometimes, the messages might have a picture attached with them.

Just as in real life, exclusion is an issue. This is when you intentionally leave someone out of a group online or out of a conversation just because you don’t like a trait about that person. It could also happen because you simply don’t like who the person is or feel that the person doesn’t deserve to be included in the group. Outing is easy to do online. You share secrets about someone else in a private setting or share pictures of the person without their knowledge. At times, you might take it a step farther and display personal information and pictures where others can see them. This is a type of cyber-bullying that can have a severe effect on the mind for some people. There are many times when the pictures that are posted are inappropriate, such as nude pictures that might have been taken by the person and have then got into the wrong hands. It’s sometimes the worst kind of cyber-harassment crime and can often be punished in the most severe way.

Trickery is a way to get personal information from others. You would request that you want to know specifics about the person or pose as a company to get information sent via email. Once you have this information, it’s sent to other companies or people who can then use it to get money from a credit card or to harass the person in numerous ways. Impersonation is similar. You would pretend to be someone else that the person really knows in order to get details about a situation. It’s also a way for people to trick family members out of money as they will impersonate someone in the family who needs help.

Sending numerous messages after being told to stop is harassment. It might seem like everyone is doing it in today’s society, but if you take it too far, then the person can press charges against you. While you might not see jail time with cyber-harassment, you could see fines or probation. An attorney can help you get a reduced sentence depending on how severe the harassment is and how long it’s been taking place.

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.
