Why You Need an Experienced Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer in Detroit

Facing federal criminal charges is very different from state-level cases. The federal justice system has its own complex rules, procedures, and sentencing guidelines. Federal prosecutors have virtually unlimited resources at their disposal and conviction rates over 90%. Without a knowledgeable federal defense attorney in your corner, you’re at a severe disadvantage.Here’s why having an experienced Detroit federal criminal lawyer is critical:

  • Federal cases move quickly. You need someone who can hit the ground running and start building your defense immediately.
  • The stakes are much higher. Federal charges often carry mandatory minimum sentences and steep fines.
  • Federal prosecutors are highly skilled. You need an equally skilled attorney to match their experience and tactics.
  • Federal investigations are extensive. Your lawyer must know how to navigate complex evidence and challenge the government’s case.
  • Sentencing is different. Federal sentencing guidelines are notoriously harsh. An experienced attorney can argue for reduced sentences.

At Spodek Law Group, we have decades of experience specifically handling federal criminal defense cases in Detroit and throughout Michigan. We know the federal court system inside and out. When you work with us, you benefit from our deep knowledge of federal law, close relationships with court personnel, and strategic approach to federal cases.

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.

What to Do If You’re Under Federal Investigation in Detroit

If you suspect you’re under federal investigation in Detroit, time is of the essence. Here are the critical steps you need to take:

  1. Don’t speak to federal agents without an attorney present. Anything you say can and will be used against you.
  2. Don’t destroy any potential evidence. This could lead to additional charges of obstruction of justice.
  3. Contact an experienced federal criminal defense attorney immediately. The sooner we can get involved, the better we can protect your rights.
  4. Gather any relevant documents or records, but don’t hand them over to investigators without consulting your lawyer first.
  5. Be discreet. Don’t discuss the investigation with anyone other than your attorney.

Remember, the actions you take in the early stages of a federal investigation can have a huge impact on the outcome of your case. Don’t try to handle this on your own – get experienced legal counsel right away.
