Cleveland Federal Criminal Lawyers

Are you trying to decide if you need to hire a federal criminal defense lawyer in Cleveland? Do you need to learn how to find the right lawyer for your unique case? Some accused individuals may not know when the best time is to hire a lawyer. Others may think that they can save money by hiring a lawyer at the last minute. The unfortunate reality is that the penalties associated with a conviction of your charges could place you behind bars for decades and may empty your bank account of tens of thousands of dollars or more in fines. Your criminal defense attorney will work to help you achieve the most favorable outcome that the law affords, and his or her expertise and skills are invaluable to you at this time.

Your Criminal Defense Through the Federal Criminal
Your attorney will be invaluable to you in the courtroom, but his or her expertise is essential throughout all other stages in the federal criminal process as well. This is a lengthy process that spans from the investigation through all appeals. In fact, some federal criminal cases are live for years before they come to a final conclusion. Your attorney will play a role in every step of the process, so he or she should be involved as soon as possible.

Are you trying to decide if you should wait until charges have been filed before hiring a lawyer? By involving your lawyer in the investigatory stage of the process, you are giving your attorney as much time as possible to become a true expert in the case. More than that, your attorney will observe the process so that your rights are preserved. Legal advice may also be offered so that you do not incriminate yourself during searches, seizures and interrogations. In some cases, getting an attorney involved at this stage may prevent the matter from progressing further.

However, in the event that charges are brought against you, your attorney to stand by you during the initial hearing. The best time to interview lawyers and to make the most educated hiring decision is not while you are sitting behind bars immediately after an arrest. During the initial hearing, your attorney will argue on your behalf for lighter bail and to prevent other significant restrictions from being imposed by the court.

The next few stages in the federal criminal process are discovery and plea bargaining. During these stages, your federal criminal defense attorney’s efforts may be instrumental in getting some or all charges reduced or dropped. Efforts may also be focused on arranging a plea bargain so that you avoid spending as much time in jail as you otherwise may if you are convicted.

If the case proceeds, the next steps are pre-trial motions and trial. Your attorney has spent the preceding months or years up until this point building your defense, and this is the time when that the defense is presented to the court. The legal team’s overall defense strategy, prep work and presentation skills will be tested at this time. Keep in mind that a lawyer’s efforts at this stage in the process are crucial even if a conviction seems unavoidable. This is because those efforts may play a role in securing a more lenient sentence. If you are convicted, the appeals process can be initiated by your lawyer immediately after sentencing.

What to Look for When Hiring a Criminal Defense Attorney
As you search for a federal criminal defense lawyer in the Cleveland area, understand that not all defense lawyers will deliver the same level of service to you. For example, some criminal defense lawyers only have experience trying cases at the local and state level, and they have no experience with federal crimes.

Most defense lawyers specialize in one or a few specific areas of the law. Be aware that there are more than a dozen broad categories of federal crimes, and there may be a dozen more charges under each category that you could face. Examples of broad categories may include sex crimes, white-collar crimes, violent crimes, environmental crimes, drug crimes and more.

Drilling down into these categories, you will find an extensive range of crimes that may be significantly different. For example, white-collar crimes cover everything from wire fraud and political corruption to lending fraud, bribery and more. Sex crimes cover child pornography, rape, internet sex crimes and more. Unless a lawyer has many years of experience working in a specific niche of criminal defense law, he or she may not have experience trying your specific type of case. With this in mind, not every white-collar lawyer, for example, is right for an insurance fraud case. Through thorough online research and a consultation, you can learn about a lawyer’s specific experience with similar casework and the outcomes of those cases.

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.
