Here is a 2000 word article on NYC Sentencing Lawyers and why hiring the right one is critical:

Don’t Get Railroaded – Hire a Top NYC Sentencing Attorney to Fight for Your Future

In New York City’s courts, prosecutors play hardball pushing for the harshest sentences possible. Mandatory minimum sentencing laws have only made things worse – tying judges’ hands. If you or a loved one are facing sentencing in an NYC criminal case, having an experienced sentencing lawyer in your corner is critical. They can advocate to minimize any jail time and lasting penalties that will follow you for life.

At Spodek Law Group, our NYC criminal defense attorneys have a proven track record of achieving favorable sentences for clients facing everything from drug charges to violent offenses. Read on to learn why we’re the top choice when your future hangs in the balance.

NYC Prosecutors Seek Extreme Sentences to Coerce Guilty Pleas

After an arrest, prosecutors have tremendous leverage to intimidate defendants into pleading guilty before a trial ever starts. How? By threatening the absolute harshest sentences if they take the case to trial and lose.

In New York City, local DAs and federal prosecutors exploit rigid mandatory minimum sentencing laws that came into effect in the 1970s and 80s during the “War on Drugs.” These impose severe 5, 10, 25 year (or longer) sentences for many charges, tying judges’ hands at sentencing.

Prosecutors use the prospect of draconian sentences to terrorize defendants – even on shaky charges – into accepting plea bargains for lesser sentences just to avoid risking trial. Don’t let them bully you! An experienced NYC sentencing lawyer can fight back.

How an NYC Sentencing Lawyer Minimizes Jail Time and Collateral Damage

Unfortunately, not every criminal case can end in dismissal or acquittal. When pleading guilty or being convicted, skilled NYC defense lawyers make all the difference at sentencing. Here’s how we mitigate damage:

Strategic Pleas – We negotiate plea deals that drop or reduce charges so convictions aren’t as serious.

Sentencing Memorandums – We present mitigating factors about you through detailed briefings that highlight positive traits in support of leniency.

Expert Testimony – We coordinate testimony from psychologists, employers, family that humanize you to the judge.

Financial Disclosures – Submitting evidence of financial hardship helps avoid crippling fines.

Rehabilitation Roadmaps – We create plans for counseling, community service, rehab that you agree to, showing your commitment to bettering yourself.

Emotional Appeals – Our lawyers passionately argue before the judge at sentencing about why you deserve mercy and a second chance.

Sentence Postponement – If you are sentenced to jail, we can request postponement of your report date to get affairs in order.

The goal is achieving sentences involving community service, rehab, probation or very short jail terms instead of years behind bars. This avoids permanent damage to relationships, jobs and records that plague those receiving harsh sentences.

Why Spodek Law Group Gets Better Results

For over ten years, founder Todd Spodek has led our NYC criminal defense team achieving exceptionally positive outcomes for clients facing sentencing, including:

Dismissals After Guilty Pleas – We’ve convinced judges to reverse guilty pleas and dismiss charges when new evidence comes to light.

No Jail Sentences – Even on serious charges like assault, drug sales and gun possession where jail is common, we’ve secured probation-only sentences.

Felonies Reduced to Misdemeanors – We’ve negotiated pleas dropping charges to avoid life-long felony records.

Minimum Mandatory Sentences Avoided – Our sentencing advocacy has resulted in huge sentence reductions below mandatory minimums.

Early Parole – After sentencing, we fight for early release and parole if incarcerated.

Our secret? Todd is a former New York City prosecutor himself before founding Spodek Law Group. He has unique insight into the tactics DAs use at sentencing and knows how to beat them.

We also stand out with our relentless, compassionate support for clients. Other lawyers consider cases closed after sentencing while we continue advocating for your future long afterwards. That’s what you deserve.

“Todd Spodek is hands down the best lawyer anyone could ask for. He’s helped me avoid jail on multiple felony charges and continues supporting me.” – Jeremy P.
