Criminal Defense Case Results

In the simplest of terms, Todd saved my life. I was given a laundry list of bogus criminal charges out of nowhere when a jealous girl I used to date called the police on me. From the second I called Todd, he was there for me from arraignment through prosecution to dismissal with sealing of the case. Todd took me out of a dark hole during the darkest time of my life and restored my life to the status I had prior to this nightmare. In a world where innocence doesn’t always prevail, Todd was able to support such innocence in my case with evidence and facts and, in turn, resolve the case favorably with not only every criminal charge, but every violation charge dismissed and sealed. The only downside is that I have no idea how to repay someone for literally saving my life. -J

I can’t thank Todd Spodek enough for his hard work and dedication in helping my son and me during a very stressful time. My son was in college in New York and I was in Florida when he was pulled over and caught with possession of marijuana. He was in Queens county jail, and I was in my house in Florida. I had no idea what to do. We were scared.

I searched the internet and called Todd Spodek because it was rated A+ in his reviews. I had none communication with my son. Mr. Spodek gave me a piece of mind he said he was going to take care of everything, He communicated with my son and explain everything to him as well. By the end of the day we both felt that we had made the right choice to hire him. Mr. Spodek was always keeping us up to date and always accessible. I would recommend him to anyone. We couldn’t have asked for a better Attorney or a better outcome, and he was with us every step of the way. We never felt lost. Thank you, thank you, thank you! May God bless you.

Mr Spodek represented me in a criminal case in brooklyn in 2011. The case went to trial and I was really impressed with the way mr Spodek conducted business. He was sharp, on point, energetic, and very knowledgeable. The trial ended up being a mistrial, but we had a favorable result in the end of it all. Mr Spodek have my highest mark and I recommend him to anyone who’s looking for an attorney. He is dedicated to his work and will show it by working hard to represent his clients and put them in the best position to succeed.
