These comments were made by fellow attorneys during the annual nomination process.

“Jerod does what every great lawyer must do - understand his clients and their individual needs. Jerod does this very well and for that reason, he has developed an excellent reputation in the community.”

“From the Juvenile Justice system through the Federal criminal system, few have the reputation of achieving the results that Gunsberg has. He is stealth, thorough, and able to have cases with outcomes that seemed devastating and set-in-stone become cases where everyone understands why wrong conclusions were initially made, resulting in dismissals or other resolutions that are far more fair than anyone would have imagined possible. He is the new generation of criminal defense lawyer.”

“Jerod is an exceptionally knowledgable and diligent attorney. His knowledge of the law and procedure place him at the top of his field. I am proud to call him a colleague.”

“Jerod's fervor for the law is what makes him the ideal candidate for Super Lawyer. He is extremely well versed in the law and his continuing belief to fight for what is right is what makes him a gem.”

“Be it in Federal, State, and even Juvie court, no one is more qualified to represent those accused by the Government than Jerod Gunsberg. He is both brilliant and tenacious. Should you retain Mr. Gunsberg, you will realize you are being protected by one of the finest attorneys in the profession.”

“Jerod has quickly gone from a 'rising star' to a real force in the criminal defense community. He is a perfect blend of pragmatist, trial lawyer, and empathetic advocate. While his skills are superior in every arena, he is a juvenile delinquency attorney almost without peer, especially in the private bar.”

“A die-hard fighter and amazing attorney. Anyone is lucky to have Jerod as their lawyer.”

“Jerod Gunsberg is a zealous and knowledgable protector of those who've come into contact with the forces of government, and has obtained the most lenient sentences, consistently, in the harshest of conditions. You could not be in more competent hands.”
