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.

Which lawyer wins most cases?

Which Lawyer Wins the Most Cases?

Which Lawyer Wins the Most Cases?

Clients hiring a lawyer for representation in legal matters often want to know which attorneys have the best track records of winning cases. However, determining the lawyer with the absolute highest case win rate is difficult.

Win rates depend on many factors like practice area, case complexity, jurisdiction, judicial tendencies, strength of evidence, and quality of opposition. Still, some broad characteristics and skills generally distinguish the top courtroom performers.

Focusing on Specific Practice Areas

Lawyers who specialize and excel in one field tend to rack up more wins than generalists dabbling in many areas. For example, an attorney who has tried 100 personal injury cases likely has greater expertise than a lawyer handling their first med mal case.[1]

Veterans with extensive experience in their practice area know the law, science, strategies, and players inside and out.

Trying More Cases

The quantity of trials a lawyer has under their belt also impacts win rates. Attorneys who rarely see the inside of a courtroom naturally won’t win as often as litigation specialists trying multiple cases every month.[2]

Simply put, the more you do something the better you become. The best trial lawyers try cases constantly, honing their skills with each one.

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.

Reputation with Judges and Opponents

Over time, lawyers who display excellence in the courtroom develop reputations with judges and opposing counsel. Their track record commands greater respect.[3]

Judges give seasoned, successful trial attorneys more leeway. And opponents may be more likely to settle than face them in trial.

Resources of Big Firms

Lawyers with the backing of prominent firms’ extensive resources may have an advantage over solo practitioners or small practices.[4]

Access to top experts, investigators, research staff, graphics departments, and trial consultants improves the odds of prevailing.

Charisma, Confidence and Composure

The intangible “X factors” of charisma, confidence, and composure under pressure also separate winning lawyers from the pack.[5]

Jurors and judges gravitate toward attorneys who command the room but connect with sincerity and authenticity.

Storytelling and Communication Skills

Lawyers don’t rely on the facts alone – they must weave facts into persuasive narratives that resonate emotionally.[6]

The best connect with juries and win over judges through masterful storytelling and communication skills.

Preparation and Attention to Detail

Meticulous preparation and exhaustive attention to every minor case detail also give lawyers an edge.

Winners leave no stone unturned in evidence discovery, investigation, motions, and witness prep.

The Will to Win

Finally, the greatest lawyers have an insatiable drive to win and competitive fire in their belly.

To them, defeat is unacceptable. They will do whatever it takes to secure victory for their clients.

The Best Lawyers Avoid Trials

Ironically, while the top litigators win big at trial, they also avoid trials whenever possible through settlement.

They know even strong cases carry unpredictability, so reasonable settlements are smarter than unnecessary risks.

Every Case is Unique

Ultimately, determining outright who wins the most cases is impossible given the infinite complexities and variables affecting outcomes.

The best lawyers bring all their skills to bear in each unique case to optimize clients’ chances while managing risks wisely.

Focus on Finding the Right Lawyer for You

Rather than seeking some mythical lawyer who never loses, focus your search on finding the right attorney for your specific case.

Vet lawyers thoroughly, review their record and experience in cases like yours, and go with someone who instills confidence and trust.

Importance of a Lawyer’s Reputation and Experience

More than win rates, a lawyer’s overall reputation and experience handling similar cases indicates likely success. Look for attorneys with[1]:

  • Years of practice in your specific legal area
  • Strong relationships with local judges and prosecutors
  • A track record of favorable verdicts and settlements
  • Respect of peers for skills and professionalism
  • Satisfied former clients willing to give references

These factors demonstrate the ability to get positive case outcomes consistently over time.

Client Reviews as a Performance Indicator

Online client reviews on sites like Google and Avvo offer useful insight into a lawyer’s capabilities and results. Look for[2]:

  • High overall rating (4.5 stars+)
  • Numerous reviews signaling broad experience
  • Clients describing favorable case results
  • Praise for communication, responsiveness, and caring

While not a guarantee, positive online reviews suggest an attorney satisfies clients.

A Lawyer’s Resources Impact Performance

The quality of support resources a lawyer has access to influences their ability to win cases. Consider whether they have[3]:

  • Top expert witnesses in your case type
  • Investigators to gather evidence
  • Research capabilities to find precedents
  • Other associates who can collaborate
  • Necessary technology and software

Well-resourced lawyers are generally better equipped for success.
