NYC Criminal Lawyers That Win

WORK WITH TRUSTED, AND WELL KNOWN, NYC CRIMINAL ATTORNEYS WHO TRULY CARE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. WE ARE A FAMILY ORIENTED LAW FIRM, WITH PASSION, AND A DESIRE, TO HELP YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES.You can be charged for a crime any time, any place – even if it’s not true. That’s just how the criminal justice system works. Sometimes, innocent people get accused of crimes with no evidence. Prosecutors – who want to look good – will then try to make you admit doing something wrong – even if it’s not true. They’ll use trumped up charges, in order to get you to plea to a nonsense charge. We understand, and we will fight tooth and nail to get you vindicated. We offer a risk free consultation, and in that consultation – over the phone, or in person, we’ll discuss what we think is going to happen. At the end of the day, we’re dedicated to you – and we’ll give you a realistic expectation of what to expect. The prosecutor will try to bully you into taking a plea deal. We’re there to prevent the prosecutor from taking advantage of you. We focus on getting every single case dismissed, or on getting the charges significantly plead down. We focus on client satisfaction and results. We’ve got over 40 years of experience, and know how to win cases. We take you, and your family, into account – when doing anything. We use the law to help you get the result you need, and want.

Frequently Asked Questions

1What happens after i’m arrested, and what should I do

An arrest can be a confusing and perplexing experience. If you have done nothing wrong, being taken into custody and charged with a crime will make you feel indignant and unfairly treated. The temptation will then be to lash out at police. You may even dismiss the charges against you with scorn and contempt. This is the worst possible attitude to take. It will do you no good. Your priority after your arrest must be the establishment of your legal defense.

The criminal defense attorneys at the Spodek Law Group can help you get through this difficult process. If you have done nothing wrong, they will see to it that you are exonerated and released, and they will press to have the charges against you dropped.

Your arrest may have been completely unexpected, and you may have no idea who has made accusations against you. However, you cannot make this your first concern. Ensuring that your statements and behavior do not harm your chances of being cleared of all charges must be your immediate priority.

In fact, you should say nothing until your lawyer arrives. The police may say that it will help your situation if you cooperate with them. But that is not how it works. Law enforcement and prosecutors have every incentive to convict someone they think has broken the law. You must be strong and invoke your Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate yourself. Once your lawyer arrives, they will ascertain the facts and circumstances of the case and speak for you.

Drug possession, sexual assault, white collar crime—these are serious crimes. If you have been charged with one of them or some other form of malfeasance, you are in serious trouble. Depending on the nature and severity of the crime, you can spend anywhere from 15 days in jail to a lifetime in prison. That is why you cannot give anything to the authorities. Even a seemingly harmless comment or statement can be used by them to secure a conviction.

The Spodek Law Group has offices throughout the city of New York. No matter the jurisdiction you’ve been arrested in, the firm can dispatch a lawyer to sit with you through the interrogation and arraignment, and help you post bail. You do not want to sit through a police interrogation without an attorney present. Such procedures are systematic, thorough, and unrelenting. You will be set up to fall into all kinds of legal snares and traps, which is why you must have an attorney there to point them out to you.

The authorities must prove their case against you. It is the job of your lawyer to scrutinize each piece of evidence. If what the authorities have against you is weak and circumstantial, your lawyer will be able to compel them to set you free. You will then be able to clear your good name and reputation.

If you are guilty of the crime you have been charged with, you still need a lawyer. You may have made a mistake; you may have put yourself in a bad situation that led to your arrest. Your lawyer can help you get the best possible outcome in the given circumstances. The attorneys of the Spodek Law Group know people in the prosecutor’s office. They can negotiate on your behalf so that the severity of the sentence you receive is significantly reduced. You might be in a position of helping the police investigate and arrest a major crime figure. If that is the case, your lawyer will be able to arrange a much lighter sentence in exchange for your cooperation.

2Why do I need a criminal attorney in NYC

Being arrested can be a confusing and harrowing experience. If you have done nothing wrong, the entire course of events will frustrate you. It may even prompt you to become indignant and to dismiss the charges against you as mere folly. That is exactly the wrong attitude. You must take seriously the fact that you have been arrested and charged with a crime.

Your first move must be to retain the services of a lawyer. Whether you have been charged with domestic violence, DWI, rape, or a white collar crime, the lawyers at the Spodek Law Group can help. No matter the jurisdiction in the city of New York, you will be able to avail yourself of the firm’s services.

All you know about the charges against you is that they are unjust. When you are cuffed, taken to jail, and charged, the person who brought accusations is not named. At that moment, all you can do is establish your legal defense. It is important to keep a cool head. Letting your emotions run riot will do nothing to help your case, and may indeed make things worse for you. The authorities may have nothing on you. But that can change if you lose control.

Indeed, it is best to say nothing until your lawyer arrives. Once you are taken in, the authorities may tell you that things will go a lot better for you if you cooperate. But this is just a ploy to get you to incriminate yourself. You must be strong and exercise your Fifth Amendment right until you are able to speak to legal counsel.

Depending on the nature and severity of your crime, you could spend decades in prison and be assessed thousands of dollars in fines. Even if you are given a relatively light sentence, you will have a criminal record. Such records are public. Anyone can get a hold of them. Living with a conviction, especially why you have done nothing wrong, can be maddeningly perplexing. It will certainly make life hard. You will find it difficult to find a job and a place to live. In the instances of child sexual violence and abuse, your name will go into a child sex offender registry which will follow you no matter where you go. Some states have passed laws so strict that it is impossible for convicted child sex offenders to make a living or rent or buy a home; they are not allowed to see their children or those of relatives.

Apart from the material deprivations of a conviction, there is the shame and dishonor it will forever bring on your name. If you are in a profession in which character and integrity mean everything –law and education for example—you might find it impossible to work in those fields again.

The bottom line is that an arrest can lead to conviction, which will definitely lead to the ruin of your life. You must get out in front of the situation immediately. The only way to do that is to hire a lawyer.

If you are guilty of the crime you have been charged with, you will still need legal counsel. The lawyers at the Spodek Law Group can act quickly. The firm has offices all over the boroughs and communities of New York City and can get to whichever lock-up you happen to be at. Your lawyer can get your through your arraignment and help you post bail. They can also negotiate with the prosecutor’s office on your behalf. This could lead to a much reduced sentence and the chance for you to begin life anew once you have been released.

3What is a criminal court

New York’s criminal court is the court which deals with any and all criminal offenses, regardless of whether they are resultant from a desk appearance ticket or from an arrest. Criminal court only handles felony cases up to the indictment phase. After this, felony cases are tried before the New York Supreme Court. When you are charged with a felony, you will be judged by a grand jury rather than a judge. Traffic tickets and traffic violations are handled in traffic court rather than criminal court. Federal cases are handled in the federal court system. To have a federal case, you need to be charged with breaking federal law.

If you or a loved one has had a criminal charge leveled against you, then it’s important to get in contact with a New York attorney. Spodek Law Group is an experienced group of criminal attorneys who have been navigating the criminal justice system for more than forty years. They can assist in all manner of criminal charges: federal and state level charges, felonies and misdemeanors, first degree and other degrees of charges. An attorney will help you understand the charges against you, your options moving forward, and what the best defense for your case is.

The criminal justice process is fairly straightforward. After you are arrested for a crime, you will be processed. This is the point at which your arresting officer will file paperwork. You’ll also have your photo and fingerprints taken. The next step in the process is your arraignment, which is your first court appearance. Arraignment is the point at which you will hear the official charge or charges that have been leveled against you. This is also the point at which the judge will determine whether you should be released on recognizance, have a bail posted, or be held without bail until your trial.

You should contact an attorney as soon as you are arrested. Exercise your right to silence. Law enforcement officials are trained to get statements from suspects before they have had adequate legal representation. The prosecution and the law enforcement officials are not your friends; they are trying to charge you as heavily and concretely as possible.

Your attorney should be present at your arraignment. If they have any contest to the charges, this is the point at which they can argue your case. If you have a felony or multiple felonies leveled against you, a grand jury will be required to indict you. This means that the prosecution must provide enough evidence to create a reasonable suspicion that you might have committed a crime. Indictment evidence is different from conviction evidence; for a conviction, the prosecutor must prove that you were the perpetrator of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt.

After you are charged, there will be a series of hearings and motions. You will be required to appear in court at the specified dates. This process is the time during which you will have the ability to reach a plea agreement with the prosecution. Plea agreements usually involve a negotiation and compromise between the prosecution and the defense, and result in you pleading guilty to lesser charges.

If you choose not to reach a plea agreement or cannot reach a plea agreement, the case will proceed to trial. Felony cases will be tried at the Supreme Court before a grand jury. Misdemeanors will be tried before a judge. You must appear in court for every day of the trial. If you have been charged with a drug-related offense, you might also have the option of using an alternative sentencing program called New York Drug Court
