  • Ian Nathan Friedman

    Jeff Gamso is by far one of the most dedicated lawyers to the profession of criminal defense law that I have worked with. In 2008, he was the recipient of the President's Award from the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers for his professionalism, tireless efforts, and contributions to the legal field. He has an amazing ability to spot important legal issues that have widespread ramifications and to recall pertinent cases from virtually any jurisdiction. I know that I can always count on Jeff for quality assistance and therefore have no reservations about highly recommending him as a criminal defense lawyer.
