Virginia Beach Federal Criminal Lawyers

Your life in Virginia Beach can take a dramatic turn as soon as you become aware that you are the subject of a federal criminal investigation. Regardless of the nature of the federal charges against you, the penalties that you may face if you are convicted can be harsh. Depending on the crime, you could potentially spend decades in prison, be forced to pay huge fines and be exposed to other punishments. You understandably need to do what you can to avoid a conviction. One of the most important steps that you can take to defend yourself against the charges is to hire a seasoned criminal defense lawyer who has experience working on federal cases. Spodek Law Group proudly serves our valued clients in the Virginia Beach area. Our federal criminal defense lawyers bring more than five decades of proven experience to the table, and we want to learn more about your case.

How Your Lawyer Serves You Throughout the Legal Process
As you prepare to hire a federal criminal defense lawyer, it is important to know that the quality and the effectiveness of the defense can vary dramatically from one lawyer to another. In addition, the attorney’s oral communication skills and even his or her desire to work in your best interest can vary. After all, some attorneys may be inclined to push for a plea bargain because they want to avoid a trial. The best attorney for your case is one who will always place your best interests in the driver’s seat and who has the experience and skills to deliver the most favorable outcome under the law.

The federal criminal process may be lengthier than you realize, and your criminal defense attorney has a role in each stage of that process. Consider that the process starts when the investigation begins. An investigation could include search and seizure processes, questioning and other steps where your rights could potentially be violated. Your defense attorney’s primary goals at this stage in the process are to ensure that your rights are upheld and to prevent you from unintentionally incriminating yourself.

Ideally, the matter will be dropped before federal charges are filed. If charges are filed, your federal criminal defense attorney’s efforts will shift. You will initially have a court hearing to determine bail, and your attorney will argue for reduced bail. This will be followed by discovery and possibly plea bargaining. Before you accept a plea bargain, your attorney should explain how strong your case is so that you can make a decision that is best for you. Throughout these steps, the attorney will be working closely with you and the full legal team to build a strategic, effective defense.

Before the case goes to court, your criminal defense attorney will stand beside you through pre-trial motions. If the case reaches the trial stage, your attorney’s communication skills will take center stage. This is the time when he or she will present all arguments in your favor. At the same time, the attorney will continue ensuring that the prosecutor does not overstep and that your rights are preserved. In some cases, a conviction may be inevitable. Even in these situations, your attorney’s efforts during the trial and during the sentencing phase could affect how harsh or lenient the sentence is. Your attorney will also actively advise you about your right to an appeal and your likelihood of winning an appeal. If you choose to appeal, your attorney may get started soon after the ruling has been read.

From the investigation stage and through an appeal, a federal criminal matter may progress across several years in some cases. Your attorney should be involved at each stage to ensure the best outcome available to you under the law.

What to Look for in a Criminal Defense Lawyer
While legal representation during a federal criminal case is crucial, the quality of representation that you benefit from will depend on the professional you select. The lawyer’s professional experience requires ample attention. Consider that approximately 20 law enforcement and regulatory agencies can investigate various types of federal crimes. There are many broad categories of federal crimes, such as fraud, sex crimes, drug crimes and more. Select agencies will cover specific types of crimes, so your attorney should have working knowledge of their investigative efforts. For each broad category, there may be many actual charges that you could face. These charges can vary dramatically. For example, white-collar crime spans from embezzlement to wire fraud, bribery, corruption and more.

As you research lawyers online, you will find that criminal defense attorneys generally specialize in one or a few broad categories. However, this does not mean that they have experience with all aspects of these categories. For example, a lawyer who specializes in sex crimes may focus primarily on pornography-related cases and may not have experience with rape charges. Generally, you may not find such refined information on a website. To get specific details about a lawyer’s expertise, you may need to make an inquiry in person during your initial consultation.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.
I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
