Mr. Gounaris was very professional and took the time to get to know me and my case. I was extremely nervous when I went to see him but left feeling confident and cared for. The day of my case he took care of everything again putting me at ease. I would definitely recommend Mr. Gounaris to anyone who wants to feel like a person instead of a paycheck. A big thank you to him and his staff.

The day after my incident, I spent hours calling all of the Lawyers I could find in Dayton. Nick was not only the first to respond, but he actually called me personally, setting him apart from the vast majority of all the others I called. On that initial phone call, he took the time to make sure he understood every possible detail of my incident and gave me his honest opinion of the possible outcomes.
I met with Nick in person the following day and immediately felt at ease. He remembered everything we had talked about, was engaging, pragmatic, and honest while taking the time to fully understand my desired outcome. His office staff was also extremely cordial and helpful and even called to give me appointment and court appearance reminders.
After my first court appearance, he took the time to meet with me again in person to discuss all of my options, the implications of each, and how they would affect me, making sure I fully understood everything.
We met in court for a second time and when it was all said and done, Nick not only got my charge reduced further than my initial plea bargain, but he was able to get the mandatory license suspension for my charge reduced by half.
He not only met, but far exceeded my goals that we had initially discussed leaving me with the best imaginable outcome for my case. After my charge, Nick continued to answer any questions I had in a respectful, informative and timely manner.
I would 100% recommend Nick to anybody!!!!!!!

I've known Nick for several years and I can honestly say he is one of the hardest working, most competent attorney's I know. He cares deeply for his clients and will fight for them in and out of the courtroom. I fully endorse Nick. You will not be disappointed.
