THE BEST LAWYER ANYONE COULD ASK FOR.

The BEST LAWYER ANYONE COULD ASK FOR!!! Todd changed our lives! He’s not JUST a lawyer representing us for a case. Todd and his office have become Family. When we entered his office in August of 2022, we entered with such anxiety, uncertainty, and so much stress. Honestly we were very lost. My husband and I felt alone. How could a lawyer who didn’t know us, know our family, know our background represents us, When this could change our lives for the next 5-7years that my husband was facing in Federal jail. By the time our free consultation was over with Todd, we left his office at ease. All our questions were answered and we had a sense of relief.

NYC Methamphetamine Lawyers

March 21, 2024 Uncategorized

To be arrested and charged with a drug crime is embarrassing and frustrating, especially if you have committed no crime. In such circumstances, you may be tempted to dismiss the authorities with scorn and contempt. You may not think much of the charges against you and decide it will all go away as soon as they realize they have made a mistake.

This is the worst possible attitude to take. If you have been taken into custody for methamphetamines, you are in serious trouble. Even if you know you did nothing wrong, such a grave matter must be responded to with force and vigor. Your first call should be to an attorney who has extensive experience in the handling of such cases. You should call the law offices of Spodek Law Group. An attorney with the insight, skill, and expertise to get you released and the charges dropped will come to your aid immediately.

The house you were in may have been targeted by law enforcement as a center of methamphetamine production and distribution. Methamphetamine is a controlled substance that can be taken orally, intravenously, or by inhaling. Regular use can lead to brain damage. Excessive use in one sitting can lead to dizziness, an increase in body temperature, and even death. Meth, as it is known on the street, is a highly addictive drug. Its danger also lies in the fact that highly toxic and explosive chemicals are used to produce it. Meth labs have been known to explode, causing sever casualties.

The targeting of meth labs, producers, dealers, and users is a priority of law enforcement and prosecutors. If you have been arrested for sale or possession, you can expect to be rigorously prosecuted. That is why despite your anger and resentment at being wrongfully arrested you must focus on your legal defense.

You may have been in a house in which meth was being made and sold. That in itself doesn’t make you a criminal. The state must prove its case against you, and if you have done nothing wrong your lawyer will ensure that you are exonerated and allowed to go home.

Sentencing is quite harsh for anyone convicted of selling or possessing methamphetamines. Penalties range from a year to life in prison. It is because meth use has led to some of the most grotesquely violent crimes ever seen that the sentencing guidelines are so severe. You should not have your life taken away from you just because you happened to be in the vicinity of methamphetamines. Your lawyer will question and scrutinize every piece of evidence the police have on you. They will ensure that you do no go down on the basis of weak and circumstantial evidence.

If you are guilty of the sale or possession of methamphetamines, if you did what you have been charged with and know the police can prove it, you still need a lawyer. In many cases, the police are after a larger figure in the drug world. If you know something or have witnessed something, you may be able to make an arrangement that significantly reduces your sentence in exchange for such information.

However, you should say nothing and make no deal without the presence of your lawyer. The criminal defense attorneys at Spodek Law Group know people in the prosecutor’s office. They will be much more effective at negotiating a deal on your behalf than you can hope to all on your own. The aim would be to get you a lighter sentence, one which might include no fines or jail time, in exchange for your cooperation.

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.
