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 services cover a range of federal criminal investigations and prosecutions throughout California. This includes (but certainly isn’t limited to) healthcare fraud, federal drug charges, tax violations, bank fraud, insurance fraud and securities fraud, mail fraud and wire fraud, thefts, counterfeiting, embezzlement, money laundering, public corruption, and bribery, internet and computer offenses, conspiracy and attempt, and more of those dark shady shenanigans.

Whatever your narrative, when it comes to crossing swords with the FBI, OIG, IRS, or DEA, you can count on us. Our job is to ensure you don’t end up three sheets to the federal prison wind, and we take it very seriously.

Still here? Great! Drop us a note, will you? Let’s figure this out together – you, us, and that daunting list of federal allegations.

Introducing the FBI: Your Friend in Difficult Situations

Picture this: Todd Spodek and his trusty Spodek Law Group are facing megalomaniac villains indulging in white-collar crimes, public corruption, even plotting terror attacks, what you name and they are fighting many more. And, who comes to their rescue? Yep, you got it – the legendary FBI, the Federal Bureau of Investigation!

Swarming with more than 13,600 Special Agents and operating from 56 field offices, 380 resident locales, and 60-odd foreign liaison offices, evil doers had better watch out! The formidable James Comey (Yep, you guessed it right – President Obama’s tryst with excellence again!) holds the reins of this organization.

Wire Fraud (Title 18, United States Code, Section 1343) or Health Care Fraud (Title 18, United States Code, Section 1347) – They deal with all.

Mailman gone Rogue: Postal Inspection Service to the Rescue

Now imagine a rowdy mailman misusing the sacred terrain of federal postal service. Fret not, here comes the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the knights in shining armor, keeping the postal integrity sacrosanct. The army, approximately 1,500 Postal Inspectors strong and working out of 18 field divisions, two service centers, the crème de la crème National Forensic Laboratory, and the prestigious National Headquarters, owes its allegiance to none other than President Obama’s nominee, Guy Cottrell!

Secret Agent Man: Exploring the Secret Service

Remember that mysterious Secret Service agent in your favorite action thriller, protecting the President or some foreign dignitary? Well, in reality, it’s not all that secret. Established as a law enforcement agency back in 1865, the Secret Service, apart from being the protective shield, also investigates crimes linked to the nation’s monetary and financial system – counterfeit money, credit card fraud, money laundering, the works! With more than 1,300 agents in 136 field offices nationwide, they are the silent heroes working behind the scenes.

The Tax-man: Inside the IRS

Lo and behold, agents from the Internal Revenue Service are not just about hefty tax returns, but they also ensure justice in case of federal tax offenses. Whether it’s tax evasion, money laundering, or any crime in disguise with a sprinkle of taxes on top, the IRS and its 2,600 strong Criminal Investigation Special Agents have got it covered.

An Ode to Health Enforcement Heroes

A special shout-out goes to the Agents of the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General. They tirelessly investigate criminal matters tied to the federal healthcare system. Emphasis is laid on healthcare frauds committed against governmental programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, and CHIPS. So, if you sniff a fraudulent rat, you know who to call!

ICE – Guardians of the Homeland

Born out of the chaos post 9/11, emerged the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the main investigative branch of the Department of Homeland Security. Tasked with enforcing federal laws related to immigration, border control, customs violations, and other white-collar offenses like identity fraud and narcotics distribution, ICE is the invisible barrier safeguarding our country. Visit their official website if you’re curious: www.ice.gov.

Managing Governmental Affairs: The GSA-OIG

Imagine an office space filled with paperwork and property documents…that’s the General Services Administration, Office of Inspector General for you! Their heroic efforts in battling crimes related to procurement fraud, identity theft, credit card fraud keeps the government machine churning smoothly.

Messing with Medicines: DEA

Acting as a stronghold against the abuse of controlled substance laws is the DEA or the Drug Enforcement Administration. These Special Agents discerningly scrutinize anything that jeopardizes our country’s drug laws.

Guardians of Alcohol, Tobacco & Fireworks: ATF

Say hello to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. As the name implies, they cover a wide spectrum of investigations related to the illegal trade and use of firearms, explosives and even the diversion of alcohol and tobacco.

Stock Market Mavericks: SEC

Lending credibility to the financial markets, the Securities Exchange Commission monitors the main participants involved in securities including the exchanges, brokers, dealers, and mutual funds. Keep an eye (or two) on those fund books huh!

Futures & Swaps Custodians: CFTC

Weaving safety nets to protect trading participants from fraud and risks related to derivatives are the Commodities Futures Trading Commission. Make sure the future and swaps markets are a smooth sailing trip for all.

Social Security Sleuths: SSA-OIG

Finally, for our friends at the Social Security Administration, Office of Inspector General, unearthing frauds, misuse and abuse related to Social Security is their prime objective. They nail federal offenses involving identity theft and false claims against the government like no other.

Remember, whether it’s the FBI, IRS, SSA, or any of the other agencies, when you need a trusted legal bulldog in your corner, call on Todd Spodek and the Spodek Law Group. They battle it out together, ensuring justice prevails every time!
