Nashville Federal Criminal Lawyers

Hiring a Federal Criminal Lawyer in Nashville, TN

If you have been charged with a federal crime or are under a federal investigation, your choice of attorney could impact the rest of your life. A conviction in federal court carries harsh penalties that could include prison time, fines and the loss of many privileges even after serving your time, including your voting rights and the ability to obtain certain professional licenses. You want to do everything possible to avoid being convicted of a federal crime. If the evidence against you is overwhelming, making a conviction inevitable, you want a Nashville Federal Criminal Lawyers who knows how to work the federal court system to minimize your punishment.

Successfully defending yourself against federal charges requires having a Nashville Federal Criminal Lawyers on your side who knows how to fight federal cases. The attorney who got your speeding ticket thrown out or reduced your cousin’s DUI to reckless driving probably won’t cut it in a federal case, just as your family doctor likely isn’t capable of carrying out brain surgery.

Types of Federal Crimes Spodek Law Group Defends

Before hiring a lawyer to defend you in federal court, you should make sure your attorney is skilled at fighting the charge you are facing. Again, you wouldn’t go to a dermatologist to fix your knee problem, so you shouldn’t choose a Nashville federal criminal defense lawyer who doesn’t specialize in your specific charge.

At Spodek Law Group, our criminal attorneys have extensive track records defending clients against the following federal charges and more:

Federal Drug Crimes

The difference between a federal and a state-level drug charge is that a federal drug charge typically involves the transport or sale of drugs across state lines. Federal drug crimes carry stiff sentences, often including mandatory minimums. In extreme cases, a conviction can result in life in prison.

Federal drug charges are often based on somewhat arbitrary drug quantity thresholds. For instance, if you’re caught carrying one or two marijuana joints across state lines, you probably won’t face federal charges. But if you have even one gram above the threshold, you can be hit with a federal drug trafficking charge — even if there is zero evidence you were planning to sell or distribute the drug.

For these reasons and more, you need a lawyer who knows how to fight and win federal drug cases. At Spodek Law Group, our attorneys have fought and won many cases in federal drug court.

Federal Sex Crimes

Getting convicted of a federal sex crime can ruin your life long after you’ve served your prison time and paid your fine. It can restrict where you live, what jobs you’re able to get and even your ability to see your kids or other underage family members.

A federal sex crime differs from a state-level state crime in that it typically involves the transport of minors across state lines for sexual reasons. Federal sex crimes often involve the use of social media or other technology.

If you are being investigated for or have been charged with such a crime, a federal criminal lawyer from Spodek Law Group can fight to preserve your freedom and reputation.

Tax Evasion

There are few faster ways to end up in the crosshairs of federal authorities than willfully evading federal taxes. If you believe you are being investigated for tax evasion, it is never too early to consult with a Nashville Federal Criminal Lawyers about your case, even if you haven’t been formally charged. An attorney from Spodek Law Group can fight your tax evasion charge and get you on the road to settling peacefully with the IRS.

Identity Theft

Congress in 1998 passed the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act, making identity theft a federal crime. While most people think of identity theft as a fairly straightforward crime in which a person illegally assumes someone else’s identity for financial gain, the federal courts define it much more broadly than that.

No matter the circumstances of your identity theft charge, you need a lawyer who specializes in this type of case and can steer it to the best outcome. Spodek Law Group knows how to defend against identity theft charges in federal court and can fight for you.

White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes that can be classified as federal offenses include racketeering, money laundering, insider trading and more. Getting convicted of a white collar crime can ruin your career and your life. The Spodek Law Group team has the skills and experience to protect you.

Advice on Hiring a Federal Criminal Lawyer in Nashville

Your choice of a Nashville Federal Criminal Lawyer to fight your federal case is a critical one. It can impact the rest of your life. Here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting an attorney.

Screen Them Thoroughly

Don’t be afraid to ask an attorney tough questions during the vetting process. If a lawyer gets flustered answering questions about your case in a consultation, it doesn’t bode well for how they’ll perform in a federal courtroom. Your lawyer should give clear, confident answers on how they will defend you.

Don’t Delay

Federal investigations are long, drawn-out processes. If you wait to hire a lawyer until you have been formally charged, your attorney might have years of evidence to sort through, forcing them to play catch-up while the prosecution forges ahead with your case. It is better to engage a lawyer as soon as you suspect you might be under a federal investigation.

Once You Have Selected a Lawyer, Let Them Handle Your Case

It can be tempting to try to direct the process or give your input. After all, it’s your life and freedom that are at stake. But you chose your lawyer for a reason — because you screened them and determined they were the best at what they do. Once you have hired an attorney, trust them to do their job, and let them lead the way.

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.
