I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.

New Jersey Criminal Attorneys | 24/7

As you research options for legal help, you will likely come across criminal/municipal court defense lawyers. Don’t get sucked in by attorneys who claim they have a “preferential,” treatment or expertise in a specific court. It’s important you do your due diligence, and find the right fit for your legal case. For example, if you have a complex white collar crime, you shouldn’t hire a DWI attorney. If you’ve been arrested, or charged, with a crime or offense, or if you’re under investigation, we will do everything humanly possible to get the best possible outcome. Sometimes, this means going to trial. In many situations, negotiations can lead to a plea bargain if we start EARLY enough. By working early enough, we can make sure we make the best possible defense.

If you’ve been charged with a crime, and are convicted, you could face life-changing consequences. You could incur fines, probation, or jail time. Even after you serve your sentence, you will now have a criminal record that will make it virtually impossible to secure employment. It could even harm your chances of getting an education. This is why you should consider seeking representation from a criminal defense attorney ASAP. Hiring a criminal defense lawyer in NJ can can help you ensure your rights are aggressively defended. The first step to take is scheduling a risk free consultation on how we can help you. When you contact our law firm, we will review your situation in a free, risk free, consultation. If we take on your case, we will begin an investigation to collect evidence, and then build your case. We will not rely ONLY on the investigation done by law enforcement individuals.

Our goal is to eliminate, or reduce, the charges filed against you. Our goal is to get you the most favorable outcome possible. We will review how law enforcement got evidence against you. If any of the evidence against you was illegally obtained, our lawyers will work on having it thrown out. In some cases, it might not be possible to eliminate the charges against you. If that happens, then work towards getting the lightest sentence. In some situations, a plea bargain where you decide to plead guilty for a lighter sentence is the best option. If your case actually goes to trial, we will prepare the most aggressive defense.

After being charged with a crime, you want to seek proper counsel as soon as possible so that you can retain as many of your freedoms as possible. Even simple crimes like theft of diamonds or gemstones can become worse, if you don’t take it seriously. When you meet with an attorney, you’ll discuss the rights that you have and what to expect when you go to trial. Consider a consultation with an attorney in NJ so that you can discuss the evidence against you and a basic plan of action before making the decision to hire someone to represent you in court. During the trial consultation, you’ll usually have just enough time to ask a few of your most important questions so that you can get a general idea of how the attorney will handle your case. Some of the questions that you might have include whether you could go to jail or not and whether you should plead guilty if there is enough evidence against you.

A trial consultation is beneficial if you’ve been charged with a crime or if you’ve been going through an investigation and you want to seek legal help. You can also reach out to an attorney if you’re entering the sentencing phase of your trial in order to minimize the time that you might have to spend in jail. When meeting with an attorney, you can talk about the expertise that the attorney has as you don’t need someone who is new to the game or who doesn’t have experience representing clients in your situation.

If you violate federal law, then you’ll have federal charges against you. This is a time when you need legal assistance as soon as possible because a conviction could result in spending several years in prison and paying thousands of dollars in fines. Agents who investigate federal crimes are usually from the FBI or CIA. Before meeting with an investigator, you can consult with an attorney who can sit with you during the interview so that you know how to answer the questions that are asked and whether or not you should answer a question.

Punishments that you could receive that relate to federal charges are usually more severe than a misdemeanor or a felony. You likely won’t be eligible for parole, but you should keep in mind that some states will release you early if you demonstrate good behavior while in prison. The minimum sentence that is usually attached to federal convictions is 10 years in prison. If you’ve been convicted of murder, then life in prison or the death penalty are usually the only two options available. You could also be sentenced to life in prison for some drug convictions or abuse cases depending on your background and the nature of the crime.

You don’t have to contact an attorney as soon as you’re charged with a crime or receive information about being investigated. You can take all the time that you need to think about your options before contacting an attorney for a consultation. However, you want to contact someone as soon as you can so that a plan can be put in place before you go to court. Your attorney will know how to approach the court system so that your case is handled swiftly and in a professional manner. Keep in mind that delaying contact with an attorney could result in not having someone represent you in court because calendars tend to quickly fill over time. If you are under investigation for federal charges, you want to speak with an attorney who has experience in this field instead of one who handles family situations or general criminal charges due to the possible outcomes of your case.
