Our Philosophy and

Who We Are

The Spodek Law group was founded on the principle that we should evaluate every single clients situation – and only accept them if we truly believe we can help them. We are selective about the the number of clients we work with, and only work with clients we think we can help. This is different from other firms, who take on every single client – regardless of whether or not they can help them. Our goal is to provide the best possible service, and that’s why many clients refer us to their friends and family members.

Risk Free Consultation

Unlike other firms, we offer a risk free consultation in person, or over the phone. During this consultation you can ask us anything, regardless of how much time you need. Typically, during this process we encourage you to ask us everything you need to know about your case and what will happen. We’ll evaluate your case, and explain the law to you – and explain what we think could happen. We believe this risk free consultation is a good place to start. We have numerous locations, and we can even chat on the phone after normal business hours, or meet at our location.

Todd Spodek handles each case personally, and is here to answer any, and all, questions you have about your case.

Do I need a federal lawyer if I have been falsely accused?

If you’ve been accused of a crime, having an attorney is super helpful. You need to have legal representation during the prosecution process, otherwise you are at risk of ruining your future. Often, defendants will take the pro bono attorney public defender. The problem is the public defender works for the court, and it means they will value their relationship with the court/prosecutor/judge and do things that are against your best interests. As a result, it’s better to hire a private attorney who will do what it takes to win the case.

What your federal attorney can do

Criminal cases depend heavily on the evidence of the case. Your defense attorney will evaluate the evidence, and make sure the evidence was properly collected. If the evidence is tainted our federal lawyers can have it stricken from the record which makes it so that the strength of your case is weaker. Our federal attorneys can contest all of the evidence, and make the prosecutions case weak. Our goal is to make sure as much of the evidence is inadmissible as possible, which increases your chances of winning the case.

How criminal defense works

When you hire a federal lawyer, you are hiring someone whose on your team and will make sure that you win your case. When you have an attorney on your side, you have someone who is going to evaluate the case, and then go to trial if needed. Court appointed attorneys avoid going to trial at all costs because they know that it’s a long process and they would rather not jeopardize their relationship with the prosecutor. It’s important you never plead guilty to a criminal charge because it can ruin your entire life. It’s important to hire a federal defense attorney who can protect your future.

Federal Criminal Assistance 

If you’re the target of a federal investigation, or if you’ve been charged with a federal crime, you must be aware of the ramifications of having federal charges. It’s important you work with a federal attorney who can work with you through EVERY step of the process, advise you of your rights, and more importantly: defend your rights. It’s critical you should not be fooled into believing a federal investigation is the SAME as a state investigation. The federal government has unlimited resources, and its investigators/prosecutors are VERY well trained.

Examples of Federal Crimes

There is a wide array of federal crimes for which you could be charged with. Below are common examples of federal crimes our federal lawyers can help with, including federal appeals.

  • Drug crimes. This can range from misdemeanor possession to manufacturing and drug trafficking charges.
  • Conspiracy. This is a broad category, and generally covers any agreement two or more people make to engage in a criminal endeavor.
  • RICO. This is a broad federal law. It targets criminal organizations or syndicates.
  • Mail/Wire Fraud. This usually covers crimes which deprive someone of their property through communications via mail, or wire, communication.
  • Credit Card Fraud. This can include identity theft, hacking, or other crimes, related to an individual credit card.
  • Health Care fraud. This is a very common form of fraud healthcare providers are accused of committing relating to benefits and insurance fraud. Our federal attorneys can help with this.
  • Bank/Securities Fraud. This includes crimes against financial institutions, stock market fraud, bank fraud, or other securities related fraud.
  • Tax Fraud. This is a common type of fraud our federal lawyers see. It can come from under-reporting your income, or making false statements on your tax returns.
  • Identity Theft. This is usually from an internet crime, where a defendant is accused of identity theft to take on the persona of a victim.
  • Counterfeiting. This is a crime involving the US currency at the federal level.
  • Perjury. This involves lying while under oath.
  • Internet Crimes. This covers a broad array of things, relating from hacking, to identity theft, child pornography, and more.

How to hire a Federal Criminal Lawyer

If you’re being investigated in federal court, you knew you need a federal lawyer. More importantly, you need the RIGHT federal lawyer. You’re probably nervous about how to hire a lawyer. Some people hire the first federal lawyer who returns their call. It’s more important to do your research and hire a federal lawyer who properly understands the charges – and has a track record of BEATING them. First things first – you must hire the right type of lawyer. If you have a federal criminal issue – and are speaking to your divorce lawyer, then that’s the WRONG type of lawyer. You don’t want a lawyer who handles DUIs representing you in a health care fraud case. There 1000’s of federal criminal statutes. You want a lawyer who has handled the specific statute that applies to your case, and knows how to navigate around federal prosecutors/federal agents.

It’s critical you hire a proper federal lawyer who is good. That means check out his/her background – look into what school he/she went to, and what professional accomplishments he/she has. None of this can guarantee that the lawyer is right for you. Most importantly, look for a lawyer who is available to speak to you and will communicate with you. Lawyers are expensive, and on average a good federal attorney can cost 6 figures. If you’re under investigation, and don’t qualify for the public defender, be upfront with whichever federal lawyer you’re talking to about money. Learn how they charge you. Most federal lawyers charge by the hour. It’s very hard to see at the start of a case how much time the case will require.

My company, CloudChasers, and I were victims of a long course of online harassment and trolling that needed to be addressed and stopped. No one likes having to enter litigation or related processes, but when there is no other choice, you can do no better than to have a firm like Spodek Law Group have your back. Their method of research, ease of doing business, and responsiveness in helping me with this problem were of the highest caliber.

- Norma Miller

Immediate response to any question; but there was also a personal touch. They provided great representation for my liquor store. I was always in contact with the same person, never handed off. Also, the results were quick; and they were careful not to up-sell me on other services I didn’t need. Overall, a great experience. Highly recommended.
