Brooklyn Federal Criminal Lawyers

You’re here for one reason – you need an elite federal criminal defense lawyer. Maybe you’re under investigation, or perhaps charges have already been filed against you. Either way, you know this is serious, and you can’t afford to take any chances.So, what do you do? How do you find the best federal criminal attorney to handle your case? It’s simple – you need lawyers with a proven track record of winning the toughest federal cases nationwide. Lawyers who will fight tooth and nail to protect your rights and freedom.At Spodek Law Group, that’s exactly what you get. Our federal criminal defense team has over 50 years of combined experience taking on – and beating – the federal government’s unlimited resources. We‘re not intimidated by complex cases or powerful prosecutors. In fact, we relish the challenge.

Why Hire a Dedicated Federal Criminal Lawyer?

You might be thinking, “Can’t any criminal defense attorney handle a federal case?” The answer is no – federal criminal law is a completely different beast. State crimes and federal offenses follow vastly different rules, procedures, and sentencing guidelines. You need lawyers who specialize in this nuanced area of law.Federal cases are investigated by elite agencies like the FBI, DEA, and IRS. The evidence is gathered meticulously over months or years. And the prosecutors have endless funding to build an airtight case against you.That’s why you can’t trust your future to an inexperienced attorney or a general practice firm. You need federal criminal defense specialists who understand how the system works and know how to dismantle the government’s case piece by piece.

At Spodek Law Group, we’ve handled virtually every type of federal criminal matter. Our core practice areas include:

Drug Crimes

Whether you‘re charged with drug trafficking, distribution, manufacturing, or simple possession, we can help. Our lawyers are well-versed in the intricacies of federal drug laws and mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines.

Cyber Crimes

Computer hacking, identity theft, internet fraud – these are just some of the cyber crimes our firm handles. We understand how to navigate the technical aspects of these cases and challenge digital evidence.1

Public Corruption

If you‘re a public official accused of bribery, extortion, racketeering or other corruption charges, our team will vigorously defend your rights and reputation. We‘ve represented elected leaders, law enforcement officers, and government employees at all levels.2This is just a small sample – our federal criminal defense experience runs the gamut from RICO violations and tax evasion to child pornography and human trafficking. No matter how complex your charges, we have the skills to protect you.

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.

Our Proven Federal Criminal Defense Strategies

Over the years, we’ve developed a wide range of proven defense strategies for federal cases. Some of the most common include:

Challenging the Evidence

In federal cases, the burden of proof is entirely on the prosecution. We meticulously analyze all evidence, looking for gaps, inconsistencies or constitutional violations in how it was gathered. If there are issues, we fight to get evidence suppressed or dismissed.3

Negotiating Favorable Plea Deals

While we always prepare for trial, the reality is that the vast majority of federal cases are resolved through plea bargains. Our lawyers are skilled negotiators who can often get charges reduced or dismissed entirely through strategic plea negotiations.4

Attacking the Charges Themselves

There are many ways to attack the underlying charges in a federal case. We look at issues like jurisdictional overreach, prosecutorial misconduct, and lack of criminal intent. If the charges are flawed from the start, we can get them thrown out.5

Sentencing Advocacy

Even when convictions can’t be avoided, our work is far from over. We advocate fiercely for our clients at sentencing, presenting mitigating factors and arguments for reduced penalties under the complex federal guidelines.6No matter what charges you’re facing, our federal criminal defense team explores every possible avenue for your defense. We leave no stone unturned in pursuit of the best possible outcome.

Why Clients Coast-to-Coast Trust Spodek Law Group

When your future is on the line, you can’t afford to make the wrong choice in legal representation. Here are just a few reasons why clients nationwide put their trust in Spodek Law Group:

Our Reputation for Excellence

Our firm‘s success speaks for itself. We‘ve secured victories in some of the nation’s most high-profile federal cases, from corporate fraud to political corruption. Our work has earned us a reputation as one of the nation’s premier federal criminal defense firms.7

Our Tenacious Advocacy

We are true client advocates who will fight tirelessly to protect your rights. We’re not afraid to go toe-to-toe with federal prosecutors – in fact, we relish the challenge of taking on the government‘s unlimited resources with our skill and determination.8

Our White Glove Service

From your first consultation until your case is resolved, you‘ll receive the highest level of personal service and attention. Your dedicated legal team will keep you informed every step of the way as we craft a customized defense strategy.9

Our Nationwide Presence

With offices in New York City and Los Angeles, we are well-positioned to handle federal cases across the country. No matter where charges are filed, our federal criminal lawyers can appear in any U.S. District Court.10When you hire Spodek Law Group, you get legal representation from a firm that has secured victories in over 1,000 complex federal cases nationwide. We have the experience, skill and tenacity to go head-to-head with the federal government‘s unlimited resources.

What to Do If You’re Under Federal Investigation

So what should you do if federal agents come knocking with a subpoena or search warrant? The most important step is to invoke your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney. Do not answer any questions or make any statements until you have legal representation.11From there, contact our federal criminal defense lawyers immediately. We can get involved right away to protect your rights and begin building a strategic defense. The earlier we get involved, the better chance we have of controlling the narrative and potentially avoiding charges altogether.12Even if it’s just an investigation at this point with no formal charges, the stakes are extremely high. One misstep could cost you your job, your assets, your reputation – even your freedom. Don’t take any chances – get an elite federal criminal lawyer on your side from day one.
