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.

NYC Child Neglect Lawyers

New York Child Neglect Lawyers

When facing legal challenges connected to child abuse or neglect, your chances of mounting a strong defense heavily depend on the competence and experience of the law firm you work with. The stakes in such cases are high both emotionally and financially. Only by selecting an New York child neglect lawyer who aggressively represents your interests do you raise the chances of coming out victorious against the other party.

Preventing Child Abuse

The most critical child abuse prevention strategy is open communication with your children. Encourage your kids to share their concerns and problems they may have, even problems they may have with you. For kids who go to daycare providers or babysitters, question your child’s caretaker or day care provider, and also question your children. Also, make certain that you have the right to come visit the provider’s facility at appropriate times.

New York’s Leading Abuse and Divorce Attorneys

The Spodek Law Group is a skilled team of attorneys with more than 50-years of experience assisting families in abuse and neglect matters.   We are reliable, with a proven track record.  We are advocates with hundreds of abuse and neglect cases successfully concluded to our credit.  Our New York legal team can employ tested legal techniques to defend your case.

We begin by seeking to understand your legal issues before making any decisions on the best strategy to secure victory for child neglect clients, whether you are the victim or the acused. Evaluating every case, which gives the best chance for providing individualized advice to our clients, is the hallmark of our legal practice.

Have You Been Accused of Neglect in New York?

Parental Child Neglect

In scenarios where a parent struggles with child neglect accusations and the child remains in a children’s home for protection, the accused parent already feels guilty and helpless. The New York Department of Human Services might begin the legal process to make you pay for dependency and commence action against you for neglect.

Social workers may get in touch with you concerning the neglect or abuse of your child. These assertions are often made in the heat of an emotional legal battle, and are sometimes groundless. Regardless of whether these allegations have any validity, you should get in touch with a New York Abuse and Neglect Lawyer right away. Those kinds of accusations can create considerable legal problems if they are not addressed right away.

Other Neglect Accusations

According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, more than  40% of residents in nursing homes report outright abuse.  An alarming 95% of residents report neglect.

As a nurse or nursing home caretaker accused of neglect, do not risk attempting a defense plan without a lawyer’s input.

Some common allegations of child neglect:

Physical Abuse, including hitting, biting and shaking

Emotional or psychological abuse, including excessive yelling or shaming,

Sexual Abuse, which includes inappropriate touching, and 

General Neglect, including failure to provide for childrens physical needs.

Any of these sorts of allegations can do irreparable harm to your parent-child connection.  They could also potentially jeopardize your parenting rights. For instance, a child abuse allegation can escalate into criminal charges of endangerment. If you are in a situation like this one, you should reach out to a Criminal Lawyer as well as to a New York Family Law Attorney.

Even while the case examining allegations is pending, a New York Family Law judge may be reticent about awarding you any child custody or visitation. Having a New York abuse and neglect lawyer from our office will help make sure that your parental rights are not infringed upon. 

Some common allegations of elder neglect in nursing homes:

According to the National Association of Nursing Home Attorneys, the three most common neglect complaints in nursing homes are slow response to calls, lack of social interaction between the resident in question and other residents or their family members, and subpar food quality.  You or your loved one has a right to their dignity at any age.  These complaints may seem minor to the outside observer, but they can cause irreparable damage to the physical and mental health of an elderly person.

These are easy allegations to make, and they can be made by the resident or by their family. As  a nurse or  nursing home caretaker accused of neglect, do not risk launching your defense plan without a lawyer’s input.

What is Neglect Allegation?

Neglect can involve abandonment, failure to provide food, water, medication, heat, eyeglasses, cleanliness, dentures, and health services.

For New York’s Department of Health and Human Services, allegations of child maltreatment are a serious issue. Once a child neglect case is filed against a parent, the department could authorize the removal of your child for a temporary stay in a relatives’ house or foster home.

As much as possible, you need to avoid talking to investigators. As the case could possibly have both criminal and civil consequences, let our lawyers handle the issue on your behalf.

It is never a simple feat to regain your parental rights after the action by the Social Services. Also, our attorneys will work closely with you to prevent your name being entered into the New York registry of child abusers.

How You Can Report Child Abuse or Neglect

In New York, reports of abuse or maltreatment are taken by a State Central Register.  The State Central Register is in Albany. The register’s special phone hotline can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The number to call and make a report is (800) 342-3720. Calls are accepted from the general public.  Reporters are allwoed to keep themselves anonymous when reporting.  Calls are also accepted from certain professionals who by law are designated as mandated reporters, such as teachers and nurses. Abuse or neglect reports can be made for children from birth up to their 18th birthday. Each county has its own Child Protective Services Department. For authorities in New York to launch an investigation, a report must first be made to and accepted by the New York State Central Registry.
