Tulsa Federal Criminal Lawyers

Tulsa Federal Criminal Lawyers

If you are convicted of a federal crime in the Tulsa area, your life will dramatically change. While the range of federal crimes and their penalties is significant, a conviction of many types of charges could result in you spending years behind bars and paying huge fines. With so much riding on your case, you understandably need as much professional assistance as you can get. Your defense deserves your full attention, so your next step should be to find a federal criminal defense lawyer who you can count on for quality representation throughout the case. With more than 50 years of combined experience in federal criminal cases, our legal team at Spodek Law Group is the Tulsa firm that you can turn to today.

What to Expect from Your Criminal Defense Lawyer

The unfortunate reality is that the level of attention that your case receives and the quality of the defense could vary depending on the lawyer you hire. Understanding what you should expect from your federal criminal defense attorney can help you to make a smart hiring decision upfront. To understand the true value that the right lawyer adds to your case, you must understand the lengthy federal criminal process.

Well before charges are filed against you, the process begins with an investigation. This investigation may include several rounds of questioning, searches and even the seizure of property that may be used as evidence against you. Because these activities can play a significant role in your case, your criminal defense attorney should be involved in the case as soon as possible. At this stage of the case, the attorney will ensure that all of your rights are preserved. You may also receive substantial legal advice from your attorney so that you can avoid making incriminating statements or actions.

Once charges have been filed, you may work more closely with your federal criminal defense attorney. The attorney will represent you at the initial court hearing and can work to ensure that the bail amount is reasonable. If your attorney has not already done so, he or she will begin building your defense at this early stage in the legal process. This ensures that the attorney has ample time to strategically create a defense that is in your best interest.

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.

The initial hearing is followed by steps like discovery and sometimes plea bargaining. Various pre-trial motions may also be filed. While your attorney is working on your defense, he or she will represent you in these areas. Depending on the situation, your attorney could work to reduce the charges against you or even to get the charges dropped entirely.

The trial for a federal criminal case can last for weeks in some cases. During this time, your attorney will need to carefully and clearly present your defense. Because of this, your attorney must be organized, focused and a skilled orator. If you are convicted, the case will move to sentencing. Your criminal defense attorney will continue working on the case by arguing for a lighter sentence. The case may even proceed beyond this stage. If you choose to appeal, you may work with the same attorney who originally represented you because that professional is familiar with all aspects of your case.

Your criminal case may extend for years, so you need to hire the right professional for the job as early in the process as possible. Now that you know what to expect from your defense attorney, you need to know what to look for as you make a hiring decision.

Essential Legal Experience and Skills

There are dozens of types of federal crimes. In addition, there are approximately 20 federal law enforcement regulatory agencies that may investigate specific crimes. For each type of specific crime, there may be a dozen or more different types of charges that you could face. For example, health care fraud may include insurance fraud, medical billing fraud, falsification of records, Medicaid fraud and more. White-collar crimes include embezzlement, political corruption, lending fraud, bribery and others. No lawyer can be an expert in all types of federal crimes. As you research lawyers initially, it is important to pay attention to the types of criminal cases that each lawyer represents. If you are arrested for bankruptcy fraud, a criminal defense lawyer who specializes in drug cases may not be in your best interest.

However, you should look beyond finding a white-collar crimes lawyer, a drug lawyer or some other broad specialty. Because so many different types of charges can fall under one category, you should find an attorney whose experiences are aligned with your case. During your initial consultation, ask the lawyer about specific cases he or she has worked on that have been similar to yours. In addition, get details about the lawyer’s track record. Busy lawyers may not keep a tally of convictions, plea bargains and more. However, the lawyer should be able to indicate in some way that he or she is effective in defending clients.
