Becoming a doctor is a dream come true for many people. Doctors on the front lines of medical care. A doctor can diagnose medical issues, provide a treatment plan and engage in a long term recovery effort. Doctors also work in the field of medical research. They help advance scientific efforts to treat and cure disease. In order to become a doctor, potential applicants must undergo rigorous screening just to apply to medical school. Once in medical school, doctors are charged with mastering vast amounts of material. The final completion of a doctor’s education is demonstrating that the doctor has mastered the basics of patient care in the field. In New York City, all those who want to become doctors need to earn a license from the state of New York. This license is intended to provide proof to patients and their fellow staffers that they have met all necessary qualifications to practice medicine.

Once Earned

Once a medical license is earned, the doctor must agree to abide by the requirements to keep that license. When on the job, all doctors are expected to operate under a certain code of conduct at all times. A doctor must agree to treat patients without regard for sex or race. The doctor must also agree to refrain from ingesting substances such as alcohol or drugs that might impair their ability to engage in professional conduct when seeing patients. Doctors are also required to avoid other actions that may cast aspersions on their fellow members of the medical community. A doctor should not commit a crime of any kind. The doctor is expected to treat their colleagues with great respect and act as a role model. If the doctor does not adhere to these requirements, they may face professional censure that may include the possible loss of their medical license.

The loss of a medical license has enormous consequences for any doctor. Doctors cannot practice medicine in New York if they do have a license. A doctor is not allowed to perform any medical duties if they must surrender their license. They can’t teach others or supervise interns. A doctor without a license may also not accept certain forms of payment for any services such as Medicare or Medicaid. In short, losing a license means that the doctor is unable to earn a living in the medical field. Given the very real problems that such a loss can cause and the enormous costs of earning a medical degree, it is crucial for all doctors who are facing this issue to find the ideal way to muster a defense in their own favor. A doctor has many rights enshrined into law when it comes to the possible loss of a license. Doctors are allowed to appeal this decision. They also have the right to have legal counsel on their side during all parts of the proceedings.

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.

A Serious Matter

Revoking a doctor’s license is a serious matter that is not undertaken lightly. By law, all doctors in New York are allowed to have a lawyer with them as they hear any charges against them and any effort by the state to remove their license. A lawyer can help the doctor figure out how best to respond to any evidence the state might have against them. In addition to revoking a license, the state of New York may also impose other penalties on a doctor. A doctor may be fined or even sent to serve out a prison term. All doctors who are facing such serious charges benefit by speaking with legal counsel to help them make sense of the legal issues in their case.

The lawyer can be with them during all parts of any investigatory hearing. The state will begin by letting the doctor know they are under investigation. During this phase, the lawyer can present evidence indicating the case should be dismissed. They can continue to provide support as any case unfolds. A lawyer can also help the doctor ensure they put up the best possible fight and have all legal options at their reach. Doing so will help all doctors make sure all necessary legal rules are applied.
