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.

How is a Federal Case Different From a Criminal Case?

Many factors distinguish a state criminal case from a federal criminal case, although some charges may be filed under either category. Any federally-charged case must include a violation of the U.S. Constitution and are usually considered to be more serious crimes than a typical state criminal charge. As result, the cases are prosecuted very differently and a federal criminal case conviction results in harsher consequences than a state criminal case. There are federal mandatory minimums set in many of the crimes prosecuted under federal law. Federal crimes usually involve long investigations by various federal agencies. The federal government has the funds and the resources to carry out very in-depth investigations when criminal activity is suspected.

You see, when you go to court without an attorney, you are playing a game that you simply aren’t skilled enough to play.

Types of Criminal Charges

When you are charged with a crime, it is labeled as a misdemeanor or a felony crime. Misdemeanor crimes are less serious in nature than a felony. As such, the consequences for a conviction aren’t as stiff as those for a felony conviction. Nonetheless, a misdemeanor criminal conviction is very serious and can land you in jail for up to 11 months, 29-days. Plus, you may be ordered to take special classes, pay fines, or even put on probation as a condition of the conviction. Felony charges will leave you in prison for no less than one year if convicted. Because of the seriousness of a felony, some charges may lead to life imprisonment if convicted. After a felony conviction lands on your criminal record, it is hard to acquire employment or housing, you cannot own a gun, and face a tarnished reputation of judgment and ridicule for a long time to come. Rest assured a criminal attorney will get the best possible outcome in your case, whether you face a misdemeanor or a felony criminal charge.

Examples of Misdemeanor Crimes:

Domestic Violence
– Theft

Examples of Felony Crimes:

– Manslaughter
Sex Crimes

What to do After an Arrest

Whether you are arrested and charged with a misdemeanor or a felony crime, it is important to keep a few things in mind to keep yourself safe during this time. Emotions are high and you’re probably afraid and scared and wonder what to do. Remember, you have the right to remain silent and this right is one that you should use at this time. If you talk to anyone in the patrol car or even in the jail, the things that you say may only make the case worse, or you may inadvertently provide information that is used against you in court. Do not give law enforcement a hard time, however. If you feel that you are being unjustly arrested, resisting only makes matters worse. You’ll have your day in court and when an attorney is retained, rest assured you’ll get what you deserve after such an incident. Find a bail bonding agent and get out of jail quickly and then make sure the next thing you do is reach out to our Troy criminal lawyers. Bail bondsman charge only 10% of the original bond amount so it is easier to come up with the money to get out of jail. Once you’re free, our lawyer will help you better understand your case and the charges that you are facing, as well as what it means for your future.
