Phenomenal Lawyer
Greg is no exception to an excellent lawyer. The service and client care that I received is top notch. Greg is professional, always available for questions, and most importantly gets your case done with ease. I couldn't recommend him enough to anyone seeking a lawyer that goes above and beyond all expectations.

EXCELLENT attorney
Greg is an amazing attorney. I was lucky to have him represent me. He is extremely knowledgeable of OVI laws and multiple Courts. He is very clear about what you are up against and explaining what your next step is going to be. He does not sugar coat anything, but is compassionate at the same time. I could not be any happier with my experience with him and the outcome of my case. You would be doing yourself a disservice by not having him represent you.

BEST OVI Attorney
First off, Greg is an amazing person and incredibly intelligent guy. He did not sugar coat my case. Greg was clear and concise about the strength and weakness of my OVI. The first day in court I knew that he was going to do everything he could to make sure I received the best possible outcome. He warned me it would be a lengthy process, it went 5 1/2 months, multiple court appearances, with small victories every time. If you have an OVI, hire him...do not go to someone else. This was my second OVI, due to Annie's law of a ten year look back I was facing multiple charges. The outcome was better than I ever expected and I am able to move on with my life. The dedication he has to his job is definitely a step above so many successful people I've met in my life. Thank you Greg

AMAZING OVI LAWYER!!!
Greg is an amazing lawyer for an OVI case. He is familiar with how different courts handle cases, pays attention to detail, files things on time, and explains exactly what the strengths and weaknesses are in your case. If you have an OVI hire Greg Gentile.

One of the best OVI attorneys in my book!
Greg has represented me twice now, once in Cleveland for a probation violation and in Lakewood for driving with an OVI suspension. Honestly, I don't know how he does it because, in Cleveland I went in court for a probation violation but ended up getting off probation. In Lakewood, I was shocked when the judge gave me a $100 fine plus court feees and released my car the same day from impound. I call him the miracle worker. Greg didn't give me any gaurantees, like he put "I don't have a crystal ball" but he did promise me one thing, that he will do his best to make sure we get the best outcome. Which is exactly what he did. He is an awesome attorney and just a stand up guy in general. I would hire him again any day!

Great OVI Attorney
Gregory is very knowledgeable about Ohio's OVI laws. I really wish I knew the night of my OVI that I know now from working with Mr. Gentile. Things may have turned out differently. I wish I could've gotten off with a non-OVI. With that being said, Gregory was able to reduce my high-tier OVI to a standard OVI with the absolute minimum penalties. I was still hit, but it was a victory in an uphill battle nonetheless. Me. Gentile is a very professional OVI attorney. In my moments of anxiety, he calmed me. This man knows what he is doing. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anybody caught up in an OVI situation.

Fantastic Criminal Defense Attorney
I have had the opportunity to discuss a myriad of legal matters on multiple occasions with Mr. Gentile. He always exhibits a comprehensive understanding of the matters involved and never fails to provide insightful advice. I have also had the pleasure of witnessing Mr. Gentile operate in the courtroom and find him to be one of the finest trail attorneys I have seen. Though I have never needed his services personally, I would have no trouble entrusting him to defend a friend or loved one charged with a serious crime. I could not recommend him more highly.

Extremely Knowledgeable DUI/OVI Attorney
I met Mr. Gentile at a 3-day driver-intervention program. Mr. Gentile made a 2-hour presentation to our group of drivers (all of whom were facing OVI or related charges). I was EXTREMELY impressed with both Mr. Gentile's knowledge and presentation skills. Mr. Gentile is an excellent speaker and explains legal issues in a very thorough and understandable manner. Although I had my own excellent attorney (not Mr. Gentile), two of Mr. Gentile's clients were in the room. Both of them had already expressed to me their complete satisfaction with his services. Mr. Gentile had been successful in significantly reducing and dismissing traffic charges. During his presentation, Mr. Gentile demonstrated mastery of both DUI/OVI law and proper police procedures. It is through analyzing and critiquing these arrest procedures that evidence can be suppressed and charges dropped or reduced. Although I didn't use his services, I observed ample evidence that Mr. Gentile is an expert in OVI cases. He carries himself as a strong professional. He would make an excellent defense attorney in your OVI case. I was VERY impressed with his skill set.

Mr. Gentile is a phenomenal attorney.
Due to a poor lapse in judgment, I found myself in a really sticky situation with serious consequences. After finding Mr. Gentile online I went I for a free consultation and knew he was my guy. Mr. Gentile is friendly, dedicated, hard working and returns phone calls promptly. With my case, Mr. Gentile got me a few community service hours, andthats it. Not even probation. To anyone seeking legal counsel I seriously recommend seeking Greg for his services. He is worth every penny. If I ever find myself facing legal issues again down the road I know where to go. Attorney Greg Gentile is my guy.....

DUI Defense
I had the Liberty of Using Greg , a year ago on an unfortunate event that had a negative effect on my family and work. The case was a DUI to which I was falsely accused of, while working in a bar and after having someone hit my car , while leaving the parking lot. I was heading to hotel, when my car malfuntioned. I was pulled over and told I smelled of alcohol, and subsequently charged. Greg was referred to me as the best , by another Lawyer friend and absolutely proved it. From the first time we spoke, he actually listened to my case, took into account all the little things that led up to the charge, then followed through on working very hard to fight for me and what was right. He was able to get me driving again within a week , allowing me to provide for my family . From there he researched the officer in question and his approach to this encounter. After numerous court appearances , the Judge was able to see that I should not have been charged and the case was dismissed, and my life was able to move forward. I feel most lawyer would have taken my money and the easy way , and just took a plea . Greg promised to fight hard, but never promised an Outcome, to which I respected and thought was a very professional answer. Greg was definitely worth the money and I would , and have recommended him to a number of friends, who all agree. He is a very , good , affordable, Real lawyer who will work for you. Mark A.

Excellent attorney
I had an unfortunate night out on the town and found myself being charged with an OVI. After coming highly recommended from a friend, I hired Greg Gentile. Greg kept me well informed on all the procedures. He did an excellent job with my case and was even able to get my charges reduced. If anyone is in need of a trustworthy attorney, hire Greg Gentile!
