Can a Criminal Defense Lawyer Help with Violent Crime Charges in New York?

Can a Criminal Defense Lawyer Help with Violent Crime Charges in New York?

When you’re facing violent crime charges in New York, the stakes couldn’t be higher. Your freedom, future, and reputation are all on the line. At Spodek Law Group, we understand just how terrifying and overwhelming this situation can be. But you don’t have to face it alone. Our experienced New York criminal defense attorneys are here to fight for you every step of the way.

How We Can Help Defend Against Violent Crime Charges

As one of New York’s premier criminal defense firms, we have extensive experience handling even the most serious violent crime cases. Our attorneys know the ins and outs of New York’s complex legal system and have a proven track record of achieving favorable outcomes for our clients.Here are some of the key ways we can help defend you against violent crime charges:

Thorough Case Investigation

The prosecution’s case may seem strong at first glance, but there are often weaknesses and inconsistencies that can be uncovered through a meticulous investigation. Our team will leave no stone unturned as we examine all the evidence, interview witnesses, and look for any procedural errors or constitutional violations that could get evidence thrown out.We’ll scrutinize things like:

  • Police reports and witness statements
  • Surveillance footage
  • Physical evidence and forensics
  • Arrest procedures and search warrants
  • Witness credibility and potential biases

By building a comprehensive understanding of your case, we can identify the best strategies for your defense.

Negotiating with Prosecutors

In many cases, we’re able to negotiate with prosecutors to get charges reduced or even dismissed before trial. Our respected reputation and relationships with local prosecutors allow us to advocate effectively on your behalf. We may be able to:

  • Get charges dropped due to lack of evidence
  • Negotiate a plea deal for lesser charges
  • Arrange for alternative sentencing options like rehabilitation programs

Aggressive Trial Defense

If your case does go to trial, you can count on us to mount an aggressive defense and fight for your rights in court. We have extensive trial experience and know how to effectively challenge the prosecution’s case, cross-examine witnesses, and present compelling arguments to the jury.Some of our trial defense strategies may include:

  • Challenging witness credibility and testimony
  • Presenting alibi evidence
  • Arguing self-defense or other justifications
  • Highlighting procedural errors or constitutional violations
  • Introducing expert testimony to support your case

Sentencing Advocacy

Even if you are convicted, we’ll fight hard to minimize the consequences. We’ll present mitigating factors and arguments for leniency to help you receive the most favorable sentence possible under the circumstances.

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!

From our initial consultation, it was evident that Alex possessed a profound understanding of criminal law and a fierce dedication to his clients rights. Throughout the entirety of my case, Alex exhibited unparalleled professionalism and unwavering commitment. What sets Alex apart is not only his legal expertise but also his genuine compassion for his clients. He took the time to thoroughly explain my case, alleviating any concerns I had along the way. His exact words were “I’m not worried about it”. His unwavering support and guidance were invaluable throughout the entire process. I am immensely grateful for Alex's exceptional legal representation and wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone in need of a skilled criminal defense attorney. Alex Z is not just a lawyer; he is a beacon of hope for those navigating the complexities of the legal system.

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.
