The BEST LAWYER ANYONE COULD ASK FOR!!! Todd changed our lives! He’s not JUST a lawyer representing us for a case. Todd and his office have become Family. When we entered his office in August of 2022, we entered with such anxiety, uncertainty, and so much stress. Honestly we were very lost. My husband and I felt alone. How could a lawyer who didn’t know us, know our family, know our background represents us, When this could change our lives for the next 5-7years that my husband was facing in Federal jail. By the time our free consultation was over with Todd, we left his office at ease. All our questions were answered and we had a sense of relief.

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.

The effects of even a short term suspension of your medical license can be devastating. In one stroke, you lose credibility with your existing patients, as well as the ability to attract new ones. Who wants to put their life in the hands of a physician whose license has been suspended? Even if you are ultimately cleared of the charges against you, the fact that your suspension was made public (as it inevitably will be) is enough to make people leery of you, and reluctant to deal with you.

And if your license is revoked, it’s all over for you in a flash. Years of training and hard work are washed down the drain by the stroke of a pen. It was hard enough for you to survive through years of rigorous schooling. Imagine how hard it will be to have to pick up the pieces and find a new profession now that you’ve been discredited from your life’s calling. It’s critical that you give yourself the best possible defense against the mere possibility of charges, of whatever sort, being filed against you.

Never Deal With The Licensing Authority Directly

When you receive notice of possible disciplinary charges being filed against you, your first impulse might be to go to the Licensing Authority and attempt to deal with them face to face in order to prove that all suspicions are unfounded. This is the worst thing you can do in such a situation, for a number of reasons.

First, you might not even be aware of all of the specific details related to the charges against you. This means that you might be wasting the Licensing Authority’s time with a protest over details that may be completely irrelevant to the case. By simply irritating them, you may be prejudicing them against you when it comes to considering the actual details of the case.

Also, by opening your mouth before you know all of the facts, you may without realizing it be giving away vital details that will be used against you at a later date. You may even be furnishing them with material for fresh charges that could be added on as an unpleasant afterthought.

A Medical License Lawyer Is The Perfect Mediator

You should never have any personal contact with the Licensing Authority until they summon you directly for a hearing. The risk of saying something that could possibly incriminate you is simply too real to be trifled with. If your practice is based in New York, your best bet is to hire our professional medical malpractice lawyers to represent you in all of your dealings with the Authority.

The attorney you retain will serve as a valuable mediator between you and the Authority. This will reduce the possibility of accidentally incriminating yourself either directly through a verbal misstep, or by offering evidence that turns out to be eminently suited to being used against you in the course of the hearing. A trained legal professional will know how to protect you from committing these fatal errors.

Let Your New York Medical Malpractice Lawyer Get The Facts Of The Case

A medical license defense attorney will be able to obtain all of the facts concerning the charges that are being filed, or under consideration for being filed, against you. If you don’t know every last detail of the possible charges, don’t open your mouth. Let your New York medical malpractice lawyer sift through the paperwork and devise an effective defense strategy against all of the charges. Your professional career is in the balance, so every barrier you have against a fatal misstep is a valuable one.

For Peace Of Mind And A Successful Resolution Of Your Case

The sooner you have a professional qualified attorney by your side, the sooner you will have adequate representation during these four vital stages of the hearing:

initial hearing, during which it is decided whether to proceed with formal charges;
formal hearing itself;
negotiation stage, during which the Authority decides which (if any) penalties will be applied, and how severe they will be;
settlement stage, during which the Authority decides the amount of the fines (if any) which may be imposed on you.

For peace of mind, as well as a successful resolution of your case, contact a New York medical license defense lawyer today.
