I have practiced almost exclusively criminal la for over 30 years and tried hundreds of cases from South Florida to New York and Los Angeles. There is no case that I will not face head on and have expanded my practice to include Federal litigation, going after Law Enforcement for illegal arrests as well as excessive force. I have great experience challenging search warrants, consent searches as well as warrantless home entries that have resulted in illegally obtained evidence. My website is Fortlauderdalecriminaldefense.us and I can be seen on Face Book at Gary Ostrow P.A. with many published blog articles relating to my trial experiences as well as my relentless advocacy for those who cannot speak for themselves and the opporessed.
I offer free consultations 24/7 and adopt an open door policy where I am always available to my clients as well as responding to client calls, both new and existing. If you need legal representation, and you desire an aggressive advocate with vast experience, please contact me at 954-566-4033. My practice is focused on South Florida however I have traveled the country in representing clients everywhere in the domestic U.S.
Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Gary ostrow over the past 17 years . I first met him when I was a prosecutor when he was a defense attorney. I had a trial against him and quickly realized that he was the best defense attorney I had ever gone against. Since that time I've had the privilege to work alongside him on other cases. He truly cares about every client and is passionate about his work. After knowing him for so many years and getting to see how he prepares for each case, he would be the first person I would call if I was ever to be in trouble because I know he would fight hard for me and he is still one of the best trial lawyers I have ever known.

There are only a handful of attorneys that I would hire to represent me or a family member and Gary is one of them. If your objective is to hire an attorney with a "10 out of 10" AVVO ranking, by all means go ahead. Be sure to send me your inmate # and DOC facility so we can be pen pals. Alternatively, if your objective is to stay out of prison, disregard the AVVO rank and hire Gary.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Gary’s comment: “Sadly, this website red flags my practice without having ANY details of a public reprimand I consented to in a Bar Disciplinary matter. I am a member of the Florida Bar in good standing and I stand on my career of over 30 years of busting my back for my clients and RESENT this site for it's inappropriate, disproportionate and absurd red flag that completely ignores the many client and attorney reviews that reflect my true character and passion as a defense lawyer with a history of over 500 trial”
Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Gary’s comment: “This profile is under protest based on the unfair treatment I received from AVVO in light of their outrageous red flag, that appears to be a sign of a dangerous lawyer who should be avoided. Everything about my trial stats and history suggests everything but!!! Its a travesty”
