NYC Federal Criminal Lawyers

Need a Top NYC Federal Criminal Defense Attorney? Call the Spodek Law Group

Getting charged with a federal crime is no joke. The full force of the United States government is coming after you, guns blazing. Even small federal charges carry outrageously high sentences compared to similar state crimes. Like 20 years for relatively minor drug charges. Yikes!

Luckily, the Constitution guarantees every American the right to a fair trial and competent legal representation. But you can’t just grab any old lawyer off the street for a federal case. You need someone who knows the system inside-out. An experienced federal criminal defense attorney who can protect your rights and beat the charges.

That’s where the Spodek Law Group comes in. Their team of elite NYC federal criminal lawyers have decades of experience fighting federal indictments. From white collar fraud to drug trafficking and beyond, they’ve seen it all in federal court. And they know every trick in the book to get charges reduced or dismissed.

With Todd Spodek leading the charge, these legal eagles aren’t afraid to take on the Feds in trial. Spodek once faced down a 20 year mandatory minimum sentence and got the case tossed out before it ever saw trial. Another client was hit with securities fraud charges that could have led to 25 years in prison. But Spodek’s mastery of financial records won him a full acquittal.

Why You Need a Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer

Let’s face it. The deck is stacked against you in federal court. Federal prosecutors boast a mind-blowing 99% conviction rate. They only bring cases they’re almost certain to win.

The FBI has vast resources to investigate and build federal cases. Expect them to dig deep into your personal, financial, even mental health records. They’ll interview your friends, family members and colleagues while threatening charges if they don’t cooperate.

Prosecutors use this mountain of “discovery” material to turn defendants against each other. They’ll pile on excessive charges without mercy, then drop some in exchange for a guilty plea. Even innocent people crack under the immense pressure.

You need an experienced federal criminal lawyer to protect you from these coercive tactics. The Spodek Law Group will file motions to suppress illegally obtained evidence and block unconstitutional searches. Their intimate knowledge of federal sentencing guidelines allows them to negotiate firmly and call out bogus claims.

Having an aggressive litigator like Todd Spodek sends a message to prosecutors. They know he’s not afraid to take them to trial and demolish their case before a jury. Many times charges get dropped or reduced simply because the prosecution doesn’t want to embarrass themselves against Spodek in court.

Types of Federal Charges the Spodek Law Group Handles

From Wall Street to the streets, the Spodek Law Group defends clients against the whole spectrum of federal crimes in New York City and beyond:

White Collar/Fraud Charges

The FBI and IRS love targeting executives and professionals for financial and corporate crimes. Some common allegations include:

  • Securities and commodities fraud
  • Accounting fraud
  • Tax fraud/tax evasion
  • Embezzlement
  • Money laundering
  • Racketeering (RICO)
  • Mail/wire fraud
  • Stock manipulation/insider trading

The government aims to “make examples” out of white collar defendants with harsh sentences. But attorney Todd Spodek is a CPA himself before becoming a lawyer. He can dig into convoluted financial records and filings to find reasonable doubt.

In one securities fraud case, he discovered a key document supposedly proving criminal intent was actually misdated by federal agents. This smoking gun got the entire case dismissed before trial.

Drug Crimes

From distribution and trafficking to possession and intent to sell, federal drug crimes call for mandatory minimum sentences even for first time offenders. Common narcotics charges include:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Oxycodone and other pharmaceuticals

Spodek Law Group attorneys expose illegal search and seizure tactics used in drug arrests. They also challenge DEA chemical testing procedures that often provide false positives.

Sex Crimes

Federal jurisdiction applies to certain sex offenses crossing state or national borders. These include sex trafficking, child pornography, traveling to engage in illegal sexual activity with a minor, and transport of individuals for prostitution.

Being smeared as a sex offender can ruin lives even if charges get dismissed. Spodek Law Group lawyers fight to protect the privacy of those accused. They’ve defended clients against salacious federal sex crime indictments and left their reputations intact.

Violent Crimes

Murder, assault, robbery, and gun charges become federal cases when they occur on government property, across state lines, on the high seas, or involve terrorism.

Gang violence and RICO statutes also bring violence under federal jurisdiction. The Spodek Law Group does not shy away from even the most serious violent federal indictments. Their tough negotiators have successfully defended federal murder cases by discrediting witnesses and physical evidence.

Appeals and Post-Conviction Relief

The criminal justice system gets it wrong sometimes. That’s where the appellate attorneys at Spodek Law Group come in. They dig for procedural flaws, prosecutorial misconduct, ineffective counsel, and civil rights violations.

In one federal appeal, they uncovered judicial bias leading to a stunning reversal of conviction. For post-conviction relief, they’ll even bring constitutional challenges under habeas corpus petitions.

Releasing wrongfully convicted inmates is incredibly difficult. But Spodek Law Group appellate lawyers live for the thrill of righting justice.
