New Jersey Public Corruption Lawyers

One of the things always given a lot of priority by the investigative agencies in New Jersey and the USA is public corruption. Top agencies such as the FBI always drive all the effort towards getting hold of those accused of misconduct.


In any country that moral uprightness and integrity are the order, engaging in any form of soliciting or bribe may land the participants in severe consequences. Similarly, in the US, federal law dictates that those involved in public corruption should be rough to book and made to answer questions.


The government has always put adequate resources that may be required to enhance any investigation processes. Public corruption is a broad topic. However, this article recaps it to enable you to understand. It also focuses on how a public corruption lawyer can help you should you get involved. Read on for more information.


What is Public Corruption?


Public corruption is when a federal professional breaches public trust by accepting to get solicited or receive anything inform of a bribe to influence an action. Precisely, it’s an abuse of federal office by a local official or public servant through engaging in unscrupulous ways of conduct, such as asking for an offer in exchange for the favor.


Types of public corruption


Public corruption is the general name; however, you need to avoid specific types in all circumstances. They may land you on the harsh side of the law. Below are some of them.


1. Fraud


Fraud is mostly considered a white-collar crime. In past incidences, most participants are always members of a particular social class of the community. It also fits those who are knowledgeable about it hence the justification for the name. However, in reality, it’s the deception of another for personal gain and other personal interests done through lies, false promises, or other unlawful actions intended at defrauding someone. Example of fraud include;


Bank fraud


Of all the forms of fraud, it’s the most dangerous form of fraud in a bank insured by the federal. Those who are engaging in it risks facing a sentence of more than 30 years. Others include government fraud, internet fraud, and insurance fraud. You should avoid getting involved in any of them.


2. Misuse of government funds


it’s a common form of public corruption. The majority of those involved in it are government officials and other officials doing business with the government. The main interest here is always to loot public funds.


3. Bribery


Bribery includes acceptance of any valuable offer from a different party to influence the recipient’s actions. Those who give bribes always expect a favor in return. Bribery cases are heard at the federal level, and the consequences are dire. However, that depends on the state and intensity of the bribery crime committed. Here is an instance of bribery.


A defendant accused of engaging in crime may realize that the ruling may not be in their favor. As a result, they may decide to present an offer to the judge secretly to influence the judge’s decisions. If the judge accepts the bribe, the decision is likely to be in the defendant’s favor hence setting him/her free.


4. Blackmail/Extortion


It involves threats to destroy someone’s reputation or reveal information for personal gain. Mostly, the person doing that always has the intention of gaining from it monetarily.


What you need to know about Public Corruption lawyers


Public lawyers play a vital role in representing accused public individuals involved in common bribery cases across the United States. That is how crucial they are when it comes to defense.

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.
