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

If you are looking for a lawyer that listens, is aggressive where needed, and holds his word above all else, Todd is the best pick. I had hired multiple attorneys prior to hiring the Spodek Group for a white collar case. The first thing that stood out to me was the cost, as anyone going through the process and dealing with the system, money was tight at that time - especially after hiring and firing multiple lawyers. The cost was not as high as others which was definitely a plus. Todd's intake process was also unlike other attorneys. He took the time to actually listen. He cared. He was trying to put himself in my shoes while I was explaining the situation to him and he really took the time to understand the whole situation. Other lawyers will give you 15 mins and send you a retainer agreement. Not Todd, I think he spent almost two hours with me as I was explaining everything.Not only was he great during the onboarding process, he was supportive and very informative through the entire plea process and eventually sentencing. After hiring him, I asked if I should hire a prison consultant, he told me to save my money as he would do everything they would. He was right and held up to his word. Later on I would hear from others that went with the prison consultants that they were a waste of money - I am glad I listened to Todd!When it came time for sentencing, two days prior to sentencing, the prosecutor tried increasing my proposed prison time by almost double - apparently a normal move. Todd and his team worked with me non-stop through the weekend prior to sentencing to ensure that I was not given additional prison time. Again, he took the time to listen and came up with a strategy to explain the case with great detail.Unfortunately, I did plead guilty as that was my best option. Todd and his whole team wrote up nearly 300 pages of a summary of what happened and why I should not be given prison time. If I breakdown the amount I spent with Todd versus the amount of work that I saw being done, I am shocked I was not charged four times as much. The other benefit was, a lot of criminal defense lawyers were just a single attorney with a paralegal or two. Todd had a team of people that I dealt with (5-7 people that I interacted with), but he was ALWAYS accessible. It would never take him more than an hour to reply unless he was in court.I was sentenced to prison and I was emotionally distraught. Todd and his team did whatever they could even after sentencing to make sure I was alright. He personally stayed in touch with my family to ensure I was doing alright and offered support to them. Most lawyers would consider the job complete at sentencing, not Todd.After prison, Todd still spent time with me to make sure I was on the right track and avoiding any potential risks in the future. He has also been giving advice on how to navigate probation etc and has not been looking at the clock for billing.Although I wish I had never been arrested in the first place, I am glad I had Todd and his team in my corner. Without them I likely would have had to spend a lot more time in prison than I did.Thank you, Todd, and the entire Spodek Law team, for helping turn what was a nightmare into a manageable situation!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence.Thank you team!

I recently had Spodek Law Group represent me for a legal matter in NYC and I am thoroughly impressed with their services.Alex Zhik secured the best possible outcome for my case.It was a seamless journey from the initial consultation to the resolution of my legal matter. From the moment I spoke to Todd about my case, his enthusiasm to help was evident, setting a positive tone for the entire experience. The efficiency and professionalism displayed by the team is commendable.A particularly noteworthy aspect of their service is their user-friendly portal to upload your documents/evidence. This not only simplified the process, but showcases their commitment to streamline the client experience.Lastly, in an industry where legal fees can often be a concern, I found their pricing to be very reasonable, making needing legal assistance feel accessible and stress-free.I am grateful for their support and wouldn't hesitate to turn to them again in the future.

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.
