What Constitutes a SNAP Violation?

The SNAP program is designed to provide food assistance to low-income individuals and families. However, the program has strict rules and regulations that must be followed. A SNAP violation occurs when an individual or business fails to comply with these rules. Common violations include:

  • Trafficking SNAP benefits (selling them for cash)
  • Lying on a SNAP application
  • Allowing SNAP recipients to purchase ineligible items
  • Continuing to accept SNAP benefits after being disqualified from the program

These violations are taken seriously by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), which oversees the SNAP program. Penalties can range from temporary disqualification to hefty fines and even criminal charges.

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.

Proving Fraud

For a SNAP violation charge to result in a conviction, the evidence must demonstrate that you intentionally deceived the agency to benefit from the program. While the government takes these cases seriously, they understand that mistakes can happen.If you received an overpayment and accidentally failed to report it, you may not face fraud charges. However, if the evidence shows a pattern of deception or intentional misrepresentation, you could be facing serious consequences.

The Investigation Process

SNAP fraud investigations can be lengthy and complex. In some cases, they can take up to two years, as investigators work to gather evidence and build their case.During this time, it’s crucial to have a SNAP violation lawyer on your side. Your attorney can help you navigate the process and ensure that your rights are protected. They’ll communicate with investigators on your behalf and ensure that you don’t inadvertently say or do anything that could jeopardize your case.
