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.

Choosing the Right New York Dental License Defense Lawyer

Not all lawyers are created equal, and it’s extremely important to choose a dental license defense lawyer who has the experience and expertise to handle your case. It’s important to hire someone who has a track record of handling cases like this.

Here are some things to look for when choosing a dental license defense lawyer:

  • Experience with dental license defense cases
  • Knowledge of New York dental regulations and laws
  • A track record of success in similar cases
  • Good communication skills and responsiveness
  • A commitment to protecting your interests

At Spodek Law Group, our law firm has a team of experienced dental license defense lawyers. We are dedicated to helping dental professionals protect their careers and reputations. Our attorneys understand the stakes involved, and as a result we fight tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients. Our goal is to get the charges against you dismissed.

The Disciplinary Process for Dentists in New York

If you’re facing disciplinary action as a dentist in New York, it’s important to understand the process and what to expect. The disciplinary process typically begins with a complaint filed against you with the New York State Education Department’s Office of Professional Discipline (OPD). The OPD will investigate the complaint and determine whether there is enough evidence to proceed with disciplinary action.If the OPD decides to pursue disciplinary action, you will receive a notice of hearing that outlines the allegations against you and the date and time of the hearing. At the hearing, you will have the opportunity to present evidence and testimony in your defense. The hearing panel will then make a recommendation to the Board of Regents, which has the final say on any disciplinary action.The disciplinary process can be lengthy and stressful, but a skilled dental license defense lawyer can help you navigate it with confidence. They can represent you at hearings, challenge evidence against you, and work to achieve the best possible outcome.

Common Disciplinary Actions Against Dentists in New York

If the Board of Regents determines disciplinary action is needed, there are several possible legal and criminal outcomes. Some of the most common disciplinary actions against dentists include:

  • Reprimand: A reprimand is a public record of the disciplinary action taken against you. This will haunt you.
  • Probation: You could be placed on probation for a period of time, during which you must comply with conditions.
  • Suspension: Your dental license could be suspended for a specified period of time, during which you cannot practice dentistry.
  • Revocation: In more serious cases, your license could be revoked permanently.

The exact disciplinary actions taken against you will depend on the nature, and severity of the allegations. Your New York dental license defense lawyer can work to minimize the impact of disciplinary action on your career, and help you take steps to rehabilitate your reputation.

Protecting Your Reputation

In addition to legal consequences of disciplinary action, there can also be significant reputational damages. Even if you are ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing, the mere existence of the investigation can harm your standing in the dental community and with patients.

The Importance of Being Proactive

If you think that you may be facing disciplinary action, or accusations of misconduct, it’s important to be proactive. Don’t wait until you receive a formal complaint, or notice of hearing to seek legal help. The sooner you contact a dental license defense lawyer, the better your chances of a favorable outcome.

If you’re a dentist facing disciplinary action in New York State, it’s crucial to have a skilled dental license defense lawyer on your side. At Spodek Law Group, we have the experience and expertise to help you protect your license and your reputation. We understand the stakes involved and we’re committed to achieving the best possible outcome for our clients.
