SNAP Judicial Appeals Lawyers and Attorneys

As more people rely on SNAP benefits to buy groceries, numerous businesses have come to rely on these customers to provide them with a large portion of their business. Thus, when the state decides to come along and accuse your business of violating SNAP rules and regulations, it can be a serious matter. Along with the possible legal implications, losing the ability to accept SNAP payments could put your entire business in jeopardy. When this occurs, you will need the expertise of an attorney who specializes in handling snap appeals, and who is not afraid to take on the federal government on your behalf.

Judicial Reviews
Based on federal law, you will have the right to a judicial review regarding the allegations made against you. In fact, when the government decides to suspend the ability of your business to participate in the snap program, it is imperative you waste little time in hiring the services of a skilled attorney who understands these cases and how they can impact you and your business.

Do Not Hesitate
Once these allegations are made against you and your business is suspended from participating in snap, act as fast as possible. To begin with, the judicial review itself can begin only after an administrative review is completed. As the business owner, it will be up to you to decide if you wish to pursue a judicial review. Should you decide to do so, you will only have 30 days to file this after a decision is given by the administrative reviewer. If you fail to meet this deadline, you immediately lose all legal rights granted you to bring this case. Since you will undoubtedly have many questions, contact a SNAP judicial appeals lawyer at once.

Filing Your Judicial Review
When filing your judicial review, certain steps must be taken. To begin with, your attorney will file the case in U.S. District Court, and the opponent will be the United States. While this may sound intimidating, do not let this stop you. By having a skilled attorney on your side, you can trust their judgment and ability to get your case resolved in a satisfactory manner.

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.

De Novo Hearing
Once your appeal makes it to the courtroom, the process will be known as a de novo hearing. This means the judge presiding over your case will render a decision without taking anything that happened in the administrative review into consideration. Since this can be either good or bad depending upon your individual circumstances, it will be very important for your attorney to prepare a case that includes as much evidence as possible to back up your claims. In addition, your attorney will also be able to take advantage of the discovery process, file motions against certain evidence being introduced into court, and conduct depositions of witnesses prior to the trial.

Settlement Negotiations
Before your snap trial gets underway, your attorney will have the opportunity to conduct settlement negotiations with government counsel. During this time, it may be possible for your attorney to convince the government enough evidence exists to turn the case in your favor. If they are successful, you may find the charges against you being suddenly dismissed and you be given the authority yet again to return to business as usual. However, since this is not a common occurrence, never assume the charges against you will be dropped.

No Jury
If an out-of-court settlement is not reached, your case will proceed to trial. In these situations, you do not have the right to a trial by jury. Instead, the judge alone will render the decision. In addition, you may be called upon to testify in court. Since this is a possibility, work closely with your attorney to better understand the questions that will be asked of you and how you should respond. The more prepared you are entering the trial, the better chance you will have of seeing the case resolved in your favor.

Asking for a Stay
If you do not want the decision of the administrative reviewer to go into effect prior to your trial, your attorney will need to request a stay be granted by the judge. For this to be granted, your attorney must be able to demonstrate to the court that based on the merits of your case, you are likely to come out a winner in court. Along with this, they must also show the court that failing to grant a stay could do irreparable harm to your business.

Likely Outcomes
In these situations, the court may choose to uphold the administrative reviewer’s decision, vacate it altogether, or do something entirely different. Whatever the case may be, you and your attorney must clearly spell out to the court what you are asking of them when arguing your case.

Can I Appeal this Verdict?
If you do not like the judge’s decision in your case, you have the right to appeal to the U.S. Circuit Court. If you do, these judges will review the ruling of the district court before making a decision. In some circumstances, you could even appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. But before making this move, it is best to listen to the advice of your experienced and knowledgeable snap appeals lawyer.

If you find yourself facing allegations of snap violations, contact a snap appeals lawyers at once to discuss your situation in greater detail.
