Can a Criminal Defense Lawyer Help with Grand Theft Charges in New York?

Facing grand theft charges in New York can be a daunting and overwhelming experience. The complexities of the legal system, combined with the severe penalties associated with grand larceny, necessitate the expertise of a seasoned criminal defense lawyer. At Spodek Law Group, we understand the gravity of such charges and are committed to providing robust legal representation to protect your rights and secure the best possible outcome for your case.

Understanding Grand Theft Charges in New York

Grand theft, or grand larceny, in New York is defined under Article 155 of the New York Penal Law. The severity of the charge depends on the value of the stolen property and the circumstances surrounding the theft. Here’s a breakdown of the different degrees of grand larceny:

  • Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree (PL 155.30): Involves the theft of property valued between $1,000 and $3,000. It is classified as a Class E felony, carrying a potential prison sentence of up to four years.
  • Grand Larceny in the Third Degree (PL 155.35): Involves the theft of property valued between $3,000 and $50,000. This is a Class D felony, with penalties ranging from two to seven years in prison.
  • Grand Larceny in the Second Degree (PL 155.40): Involves the theft of property valued between $50,000 and $1 million. This is a Class C felony, punishable by five to 15 years in prison.
  • Grand Larceny in the First Degree (PL 155.42): Involves the theft of property valued over $1 million. This is a Class B felony, carrying a potential prison sentence of eight to 25 years.

Why You Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer

Navigating the legal system without professional help can be risky. Here’s how a criminal defense lawyer from Spodek Law Group can assist you:

Expert Legal Representation

Our attorneys have extensive experience handling grand theft cases in New York. We understand the nuances of the law and can craft a defense strategy tailored to the specifics of your case. Whether it involves challenging the valuation of the stolen property or questioning the legality of the evidence gathered, we leave no stone unturned.

Protecting Your Rights

From the moment you are charged, our primary goal is to protect your rights. We ensure that law enforcement and prosecutors adhere to legal protocols and that your constitutional rights are not violated during the investigation and trial process.

Negotiating Plea Deals

In some cases, negotiating a plea deal may be in your best interest. Our lawyers are skilled negotiators who can work with prosecutors to reduce the charges or secure a more lenient sentence, potentially avoiding the harshest penalties associated with grand larceny.

Courtroom Defense

If your case goes to trial, you need a lawyer who is not only knowledgeable but also confident in the courtroom. Our attorneys have a proven track record of successfully defending clients in court, using compelling arguments and evidence to cast doubt on the prosecution’s case.

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.

Hypothetical Scenarios and Client Stories

Imagine being accused of embezzling funds from your employer. The prosecution claims you stole over $50,000, charging you with grand larceny in the second degree. Without a skilled lawyer, you could face up to 15 years in prison. However, with Spodek Law Group by your side, we would thoroughly investigate the case, potentially uncovering evidence that the funds were misallocated due to accounting errors rather than intentional theft. This could lead to a dismissal of charges or a significant reduction in penalties.
