Seattle Criminal Lawyers

From the moment a police officer informs you that you are under arrest, your world will be turned upside down. From what may be an ongoing investigation into your alleged activities to spending some time behind bars before a court hearing, these and other situations are sure to leave you feeling as if there is little hope for your future. However, the days and weeks ahead may not be as dire as you anticipate, especially if you make the smart decision to hire a seasoned criminal lawyer to represent you from the very beginning. By doing so, you will reap a number of important benefits.

Giving You a Reality Check
When you initially get charged with a crime, your mind may start thinking about all the police dramas you have seen on television. As a result, you probably have a skewed impression as to how your case may play out. Contrary to what you may have seen on TV and in the movies, most criminal cases do not turn on a dime at the 11th-hour. Instead, investigations are often long and complex, which can leave you very frustrated. By having an experienced criminal attorney handling your case, they can give you a reality check as to what you can expect with your case by explaining various scenarios and possible outcomes.

From Prison to Probation
After your arrest, you will be informed as to whether the charges against you are felonies or misdemeanors. If they are felonies, the possible legal consequences if you are convicted will no doubt be life-altering in numerous ways. For starters, you will probably be sentenced to prison for what may be decades. Also, the court may order you to pay huge fines that will essentially mean financial ruin for you and even your family. However, all of this may be able to be avoided if you have a lawyer on your side who knows how to negotiate with prosecutors to get serious charges reduced to a more manageable level. Should your attorney be successful in getting a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor, you may go from spending time in prison to facing only a limited amount of time on probation.

Clear Communications
Since your case will likely involve more than a few court hearings and other meetings, having a well-respected criminal lawyer on your side can mean you will always have clear channels of communication at all times regarding all aspects of your case. From being constantly updated about negotiations with prosecutors to knowing you and your family are always being told the truth about what is happening and what to expect, you can gain tremendous peace of mind during what is of course a difficult ordeal.

Keeping Police in Check
When police arrest you, the one thing they want to do is immediately capitalize on your stress and fear. To do so, they often hurry suspects into an interrogation room and begin intense questioning, often well before the person has even hired an attorney. If you let this happen to you, the consequences can be long-lasting and put your case in great peril from the start. When you are placed under arrest, listen closely when you are being read your Miranda rights. If you do, you’ll realize you are allowed to have an attorney present before you ever answer the first question from police. By using this constitutional right to your advantage, you can avoid self-incrimination and make it far more difficult for police to build a case that can result in a conviction. Thus, always insist your attorney be present during questioning to guide you step-by-step through a process that police try to make as stressful as possible.

Helping with Appeals
If despite the best efforts of you and your attorney a court does convict you of committing a crime, your criminal lawyer can assist in helping you appeal the decision. Remember, your conviction is simply the opinion of one court, meaning it is quite possible an appeals court may view your case in an entirely different light. By working with your criminal lawyer, you may be able to bring new facts to light about what happened, help your lawyer uncover new evidence, and cooperate with your attorney while they are consulting with expert witnesses who may be able to prove you are indeed innocent. But because appeals are not decided overnight, you will need to listen to your attorney and be very patient while the process plays out over several weeks.

Free on Bail
While police may initially place you in a jail cell after your arrest, the last thing you want to do is remain there indefinitely. Therefore, you need to focus on being able to make bail as fast as possible. To accomplish this, you will need your attorney working hard to not only make the judge grant bail, but to also make sure it is set at a reasonable amount based on your charges. Since you probably won’t know the first thing about getting bailed out of jail, you should rely on an attorney you trust to take care of the details. Once you are free on bail, you can then focus your efforts on helping your attorney develop a legal strategy that will keep you out of jail permanently.

While you certainly never want to face a situation where you have been arrested, knowing what needs to be done in these circumstances may mean the difference between staying free or going to prison. While you may think you can handle many of the details yourself, trying to do so only leads to disaster. To give yourself an excellent chance of emerging victorious, hire a criminal lawyer at once.

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.
