Irvine Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers
Experience the A-Team of White-Collar Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys
Have you ever thought that your success is a curse? You have invested significant time and effort building your business, contributing to the community, and uplifting the lives of both employees and customers. Unfortunately, even without criminal intent, the federal government may threaten the hard-won progress you have achieved. It seems as though the authorities want to punish you for being more prosperous than others. Fortunately, our team at Spodek Law Group P.C. recognizes this harsh reality and has assembled an elite team of white-collar federal defense attorneys who can help you navigate such troubled waters.
If you are facing investigation or subpoena from federal authorities, it is critical to address these concerns as soon as possible. Even if you think you know the allegations against you, you cannot afford any mistakes that may jeopardize your legal rights. Our experienced lawyers will quickly determine the nature and scope of charges and build a custom-tailored defense strategy focused solely on shielding you.
Federal cases can be incredibly complex, requiring distinct knowledge and skills different from that needed for state litigation. At Spodek Law Group P.C., our focus is only on federal law so that our clients receive comprehensive and sophisticated defense representation. Our federal criminal defense attorneys ensure that they remain up-to-date with the latest initiatives and rulings from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and other federal agencies. We want to anticipate our opponents’ strategies during investigations and prosecutions proactively, relying on every opportunity we have to reduce the risk of conviction and sentencing at trial.
Our practice includes former prosecutors and trial lawyers with years of experience with the DOJ and the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Several of them have previously prosecuted criminal cases before joining private practice. By shifting between prosecutor and federal criminal defense attorney roles in different cases, we have used insights gleaned from our previous experiences to gain familiarity with prosecutors’ tactics and predict strategies during investigations and prosecutions better. This enables us to tailor an approach that helps reduce the risk of a negative outcome for our clients.
Over time, our federal criminal attorneys have dealt with thousands of cases involving both investigations and trials in several jurisdictions nationwide. When you hire a federal criminal lawyer from Spodek Law Group P.C., you can expect senior counsel representative of the entire firm who will work together to develop your defense strategy. We craft and pursue that strategy strategically, methodically, and aggressively to minimize any harm experienced by our clients.

Potential Issues in Federal Criminal Cases
During a federal criminal defense case with Spodek Law Group P.C., there are numerous potential challenges that we can help address, including;
– Illegally-Obtained Evidence: The evidence obtained as a result of the violation may be deemed illegally-obtained and inadmissible in federal court; experts from our firm work strategically to keep such evidence out of your case.
– Conspiracy Allegations: You do not have to commit a substantive offense in order to face substantial fines and long-term imprisonment.
– Attempt Allegations: The targets of investigations can also face charges for attempt, making it hard to leverage feasible defense strategies.
– Multiple Related and Unrelated Charges: In federal cases, it is not unusual for defendants to face multiple charges both related and unrelated crimes demanded by the prosecutors.
– Confidential Informant or Co-Conspirator Testimony: Testimonies from people with vested interest in your case that go against you can hurt your defense argument.
– Sentencing Guidelines: The federal sentencing guidelines are not binding but having the right legal help can enable a possible below-guideline plea deal or sentence.

– Federal Imprisonment: Depending on the charge, there is usually a minimum several years of incarceration, and sentences could last even decades behind bars.
