Can a Criminal Defense Lawyer Help with Federal Cases in New York?

Can a Criminal Defense Lawyer Help with Federal Cases in New York?

Introduction

If you or a loved one is facing federal criminal charges in New York, you may be feeling overwhelmed and unsure of where to turn. Federal crimes are prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and carry potentially severe penalties, including lengthy prison sentences. When the stakes are this high, having an experienced federal criminal defense attorney on your side can make all the difference.At Spodek Law Group, our team of skilled New York federal criminal lawyers has a proven track record of success handling complex cases in federal court. We understand what you’re up against and are here to provide the aggressive legal representation you need during this difficult time. With our help, you can fight back against the charges and work towards the best possible outcome.

What Makes Federal Cases Different?

Federal criminal cases are very different from cases prosecuted at the state level. Some key differences include:

  • Federal crimes are investigated by agencies like the FBI, DEA, and IRS and prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office
  • Federal sentencing guidelines tend to be much harsher, with mandatory minimums and less flexibility
  • Federal cases often involve complex issues related to constitutional rights, search and seizure, wiretapping, etc.
  • Federal prosecutors have vast resources at their disposal to build cases
  • Federal cases can involve charges that span multiple states

Given the high stakes and complexity involved, it’s critical to have a defense lawyer on your side who has specific experience handling federal criminal cases. Our attorneys at Spodek Law Group have decades of experience navigating the federal system. We know how to protect your rights and build the strongest possible defense.

Types of Federal Cases We Handle

Our federal criminal defense lawyers represent clients across New York who are facing a wide range of charges, including:

  • Drug crimes – trafficking, manufacturing, distribution, etc.
  • White collar crimes – fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, etc.
  • Cybercrime – hacking, identity theft, credit card fraud, etc.
  • Violent crimes – kidnapping, armed robbery, murder, etc.
  • Sex crimes – child pornography, human trafficking, etc.
  • Weapons charges – illegal possession, trafficking, etc.

No matter how serious the accusations against you may be, we have the knowledge and experience to help. We will carefully review the details of your case to identify any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and develop a customized defense strategy.

Protecting Your Rights During a Federal Investigation

Many of our clients come to us during the early stages of a federal investigation, before any formal charges have been filed. If you believe you may be under investigation, it’s important to seek legal counsel right away. Anything you say to federal agents can potentially be used against you.Our attorneys can intervene early in the process to ensure your rights are protected. We can communicate with investigators on your behalf to gather information about the nature of the investigation and advise you on how to proceed. In some cases, we may be able to prevent charges from being filed at all.If you’ve been served with a federal grand jury subpoena, it’s especially important to consult with an attorney. A grand jury subpoena means the U.S. Attorney’s Office is actively building a case against you or someone close to you. While you may be called as a witness, anything you say to the grand jury could implicate you in a crime.We can help you understand your rights and obligations under a grand jury subpoena. We’ll work to limit the scope of the subpoena and ensure you don’t provide any unnecessary information that could be used against you. If you are considered a target of the investigation, we’ll advise you on whether you should assert your Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

Building a Strong Federal Criminal Defense

Being charged with a federal crime does not mean you will automatically be convicted. Prosecutors are required to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, which is a very high standard. There may be opportunities to have evidence suppressed, charges reduced, or the case dismissed entirely due to violations of your constitutional rights or weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.At Spodek Law Group, we take a proactive approach to building the strongest possible defense on your behalf. This includes:

Just had my Divorce case settled 2 months ago after having a horrible experience with another firm. I couldn’t be happier with Claire Banks and Elizabeth Garvey with their outstanding professionalism in doing so with Spodek Law Group. Any time I needed questions answered they were always prompt in doing so with all my uncertainties after 30 yrs of marriage.I feel from the bottom of my heart you will NOT be disappointed with either one. Thanks a million.

Alex Zhik contacted me almost immediately when I reached out to Spodek for a consultation and was able to effectively communicate the path forward/consequences of my legal issue. I immediately agreed to hire Alex for his services and did not regret my choice. He was able to cover my case in court (with 1 day notice) and not only was he able to push my case down, he carefully negotiated a dismissal of the charge altogether. I highly recommend Spodek, and more specifically, Alex Zhik for all of your legal issues. Thanks guys!

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 can't recommend Alex Zhik and Spodek Law Firm highly enough for their exceptional legal representation and personal mentorship. From the moment I engaged their services in October 2022, Alex took the time to understand my case thoroughly and provided guidance every step of the way. Alex's dedication to my case went above and beyond my expectations. His expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome were evident throughout the entire process. He took the time to mentor me, ensuring I understood the legal complexities involved to make informed decisions. Alex is the kind of guy you would want to have a beer with and has made a meaningful impact on me. I also want to acknowledge Todd Spodek, the leader of the firm, who played a crucial role in my case. His leadership and support bolstered the efforts of Alex, and his involvement highlighted the firm's commitment to excellence. Thanks to Alex Zhik and Todd Spodek, I achieved the outcome I desired, and I am incredibly grateful for their professionalism, expertise, and genuine care. If you're in need of legal representation, look no further than this outstanding team.
