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.

Can I change Long Island criminal lawyers if I’m unhappy with the one representing me?

If you aren’t satisfied with your lawyer, then you may be able to get a new one, although it will depend on a couple key factors.

The first is whether you hired the lawyer yourself or you have a court-appointed attorney. If you hired your lawyer, then you’re in luck. If you are accused of a serious crime, like stealing diamonds or stealing gemstones like Paraiba tourmaline, you need a real attorney helping you. You can fire your lawyer whenever you want and get a new one. That’s your right, although you do need to pay your lawyer for services provided up to that point, according to your fee schedule with them. Note that depending on your state, a lawyer you fire may be able to hang on to your file until you’ve paid their fee in full.

The opposite is true if you have a public defender. In this case, you must ask the judge for a new lawyer, and judges typically don’t grant these requests. The reality is that defendants and public defenders disagree about case strategies all the time, which means that this isn’t grounds for removing the public defender. When you’re not paying for a lawyer, you have far less control and you essentially end up with whoever the court gives you.

There are a select few situations where a judge will grant a request to change lawyers. If a public defender demonstrates incompetence, then a judge will likely allow for a replacement. However, this situation rarely occurs. Even if a public defender isn’t as skilled as another lawyer would be, it’s very uncommon for one to demonstrate incompetence.

A more common situation in which a judge may grant a replacement lawyer request is if there’s a severe clash between the defendant and the public defender. If the defendant and the public defender don’t get along to the point that a professional relationship is out of the question, then that means that the lawyer can’t provide the defense possible for the client, and a judge will assign a new public defender to the case.

Although you have the right to get rid of a lawyer you hired, the prosecutor has the right to keep cases going on a reasonable schedule. Prosecutors try to avoid delays, which can lead to witnesses who are no longer available and other issues. For serious cases, which are felonies, such as diamond theft, or gemstone theft, prosecutors might take the case very seriously. If the lawsuit has been filed, you will most likely need to get the permission of the court before you can change lawyers, because a change in lawyers usually delays the trial. You’re unlikely to find a lawyer who agrees to represent you at the last minute without proper time to prepare.

The closer your request is to your trial, the more scrutiny there will be from the court. In these situations, you’ll need to demonstrate good cause regarding why you want to change lawyers. If you can do that, the court should grant your request. If there isn’t a valid reason for you to change lawyers, then the court will likely require that you stick with your original lawyer to keep the trial on track.

Should I represent myself in a criminal case

It is never a good decision to represent yourself in a criminal case unless the state has a very solid case that is practically defenseless. A charge for driving under the influence is good example of how prosecutors can be very restricted in their authority to offer a charge reduction or a diversion. Legislators in all states have set mandatory jail terms and increased minimum fines to the point that the charges are difficult to defend. However, charges that are filed on borderline evidence are regularly applied as though the state has a right to a conviction merely because of the charge. These are the cases when the defendant should always retain an experienced criminal defense attorney because prosecutors rarely deal reasonably with a defendant when making a plea bargain. An attorney can fare much better and may be effective in casting considerable doubt on the validity of the charge. For example, in a DUI case in Long Island, your attorney can help you get back your car lease. In addition, technicalities can matter greatly even when the state appears to have a strong case if there have been any violations of arrest protocol or illegal search seizure. The 4th and 5th Amendments still matter, but it often takes an attorney to invoke your rights successfully.

What a criminal attorney in Long Island can do

Once you have retained an attorney to handle your case, the attorney can then conduct an investigation into the articles of evidence, such as possession of liquor from a liquor store and evaluate them for legal acquisition and accuracy, including officer testimony. Your attorney can question the officer during the investigation and still conduct cross-examination when the prosecution calls them to the stand to testify. Officer statements can get embellished in the court proceeding, and your criminal defense attorney can pinpoint any discrepancies. All physical evidence must be seized according constitutional requirements and a criminal defense attorney can motion to suppress certain evidence that has been illegally confiscated. In addition, your attorney can also opt to take a case to trial, which is no undertaking for a novice defendant. It is important in defending a borderline evidence case to have an experienced trial attorney who understands how to communicate with the jury, including the during the selection process.

Sometimes you cannot represent yourself

All defendants should understand that charges potentially carrying a jail sentence will always require professional legal representation as required by the Supreme Court. Even in a DUI case, the state may decide to appoint a public defender to serve as the defendant’s legal counsel. Having a public defender rarely bodes well for the defendant, as many times the public defender is working for the same state that is doing the prosecuting. Their priorities may be with their own employment. Having a personal attorney who provides diligent representation and is focused on defending your rights can make a major difference in the final outcome.

Defending against criminal charges is a very serious situation for anyone because a conviction has a way changing a life for years to come, and attempting to represent yourself can make things worse. Retaining an aggressive criminal defense lawyer is easily as much an investment in your future as it is an investment in your freedom.
