Understanding Your Situation
Being targeted by federal authorities can be a daunting experience, and you need to figure out what is happening as soon as possible. When you work with our team at Spodek Law Group, P.C., our experienced federal criminal defense lawyers will work quickly to investigate the nature and scope of these allegations against you. By doing so, we will build and execute a custom-tailored defense strategy that is designed to protect you as thoroughly as possible.

To achieve this goal, we focus exclusively on federal defense cases. This approach means that we have stayed up-to-date with different legal issues affecting our clients such as DOJ initiatives and precedential case decisions. We anticipate a prosecutor’s strategies during investigations and prosecutions through insights gained from former prosecutors and trial lawyers with the DOJ and the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Their expertise enables us to proactively assert statutory defenses, constitutional protections, safe harbors and all other available means to prevent the possibility of a conviction at trial for our clients.

Our Experience
At Spodek Law Group, P.C. our experienced team has handled thousands of federal investigations and numerous federal trials throughout their lengthy careers. We represent senior attorneys who will work collaboratively to build a defense that is methodical, strategic and aggressive, thereby effectively protecting you and minimizing unnecessary consequences.

Why Choose Us?
When you choose Spodek Law Group, P.C., you can rest assured that you are receiving the legal representation possible. There are several compelling reasons to hire us to defend your case, including:

Prompt Intervention – Our federal criminal defense lawyers start working on it as soon as we receive the case from the client. The timely response in most cases could make a big difference.

Extensive Prior DOJ Experience – More than 70 years of former Department of Justice experience enables us to use our knowledge of the government’s investigative tactics and prosecutorial strategies to further your advantage.

Custom-Tailored Defense Strategy – After assessing your potential exposure we will devise and execute a unique defense strategy to overcome the government’s allegations in light of the specific factual and legal circumstances surrounding your situation.

Strategically Prepared for all Stages of Prosecution – Investigations through trial, sentencing, and appeal require different strategic approaches. No matter where you are in the process, our top-level criminal attorneys know what it takes to defend you effectively.

Cases We Handle
Our cases typically involve healthcare fraud, drug crimes, financial crimes, public corruption, and other serious white-collar offenses. We represent individual and corporate clients ranging from small businesses to multi-national corporations, board members, politicians, healthcare providers and licensed professionals. Our federal criminal defense lawyers handle cases involving all federal agencies and task forces. Some of the common charges we deal with include bank fraud, healthcare fraud, insurance fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, mortgage fraud, securities fraud, intellectual property theft, money laundering, tax evasion, public corruption, bribery, theft of government property, and drug crimes.

Potential Issues in Federal Criminal Cases
When it comes to federal criminal defense cases, various issues can arise, including:

1. Illegally-Obtained Evidence
When the federal government conducts an investigation, their actions must abide by limitations set out by the US Constitution. If they violate your constitutional rights, any evidence obtained as a result of their violation may be deemed illegally-obtained. To keep this evidence out of court, it is up to you to make sure you retain experienced defense attorneys. By not having legal representation, this could lead to being convicted with evidence that should have been deemed inadmissible in court.

2. Conspiracy Allegations
Under the federal conspiracy statute, 18 U.S.C. § 371, formal or informal agreements to commit a crime can still lead to substantial fines and potential long-term imprisonment. Various other federal statutes contain conspiracy provisions as well, making these the most powerful prosecution tools in investigations and prosecutions. A prosecutor needn’t prove that you committed an offense necessarily; only that there was movement toward committing the offense.

3. Attempt Allegations
Individuals and organizations being targeted for federal prosecution under federal law can also face charges of attempt in the absence of evidence of a completed criminal offense. Charges for attempted offenses carry similar penalties to charges for completed offenses. For that reason, entities facing potential federal investigations must take extreme care to avoid relying on defense strategies that could expose them to prosecution for an “unsuccessful” crime.

4. Multiple Charges, Related or Unrelated
While certain federal statutes target specific substantive offenses, many other statutes impose severe penalties for acts taken in furtherance of – or in conjunction with – specific criminal conduct. In some instances, it is common for defendants to face multiple charges for related as well as unrelated crimes. The allegations connected to mail fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering are among the most common accusations in federal cases. We have also seen healthcare professionals face multiple allegations related to healthcare-fraud cases and companies charged with corporate crimes.

5. Confidential Informant or “Co-Conspirator” Testimony
In federal criminal cases, prosecutors may obtain testimony from a confidential informant or an alleged co-conspirator. This testimony can profoundly impact your case’s outcome if someone with vested interests in the case testifies against you.

6. Sentencing Guidelines
The Federal Sentencing Guidelines outlines the potential sentences for most federal crimes. While these guidelines are not binding, prosecutors and judges rely on them when deciding what penalties to seek and impose in the event of a trial conviction. An experienced Spodek Law Group, P.C. legal practitioner helps protect clients against the prescriptions given by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. A skilled attorney often negotiates below-guideline plea deals and sentences (assuming it is not an effort in futility).

Potential Penalties in Federal Criminal Cases
The potential penalties for a federal criminal case include severe fines, prison sentences that can last several years, probation, restitution for victims, recoupments, and other financial penalties. Convicted defendants can lose DEA or SEC registration (for prescription and securities-related offenses), and, in some cases, be excluded from Medicare and Medicaid or face a loss of eligibility for various public benefits.
