I was in a tough spot after a unspeakable hardship and needed help. He was very professional, thorough, comforting, and kind. He did not give up and fought for me and my case until we got the outcome we deserved and wanted. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer or experience. I highly recommend and suggest Mr. Gunsberg for a overall spectacular experience. I am so very grateful.

Jerod Gusnberg is an exceptional attorney and a credit to his profession. I was very, VERY lucky to find him and recommend him to ANYONE who needs a first-rate criminal defense lawyer. He is skilled, moral, sharp and I wish I had found him sooner. He was my third lawyer for a driving under a suspended license case. It lasted 4 years with a $20K warrant. It was ruining my life and there was no end in sight. My first lawyer charged me $2700 ,and assured me the case should be easily reduced. Instead, he sent an inexperienced clerk to court who said NOTHING to the judge and was utterly useless. My second lawyer used scare tactics to hire him for $3000. His staff kept reminding me he was doing me such a "favor" , yet he did nothing but waste my time and money.
I could not find work without a license and I was lost and desperate. I sought a 3rd lawyer and Jerod's ad stood out. Unlike the others, it was clean, straightforward and to the point, just like him as it turns out. Jerod didn't rely on frightening you. He just claimed to provide an excellent defense and that's EXACTLY what he did. Jerod treated my case with the gravity it deserved, but did not overblow his work. He assigned me a decent rate. He was positive, but was careful not to make promises. My other attorneys made me feel small and low on their list of things to do, and were hard to reach. Jerod answered his calls personally and whenever he said he would call, or email -- HE DID!!
Jerod was amazing throughout. From beginning to end, Jerod was trustworthy, reliable, direct, and expeditious. As soon as I provided the retainer, Jerod went straight to court. He recalled the warrant and got my case dismissed. After years without a license, Jerod got it back within three days! Moreover, 2 years later, I needed a disposition in order to begin a new job in Chicago. True to form, Jerod not only called me back immediately, he provided it free of charge the next day, in time to start my new position.
Jerod Gunsberg has distinguished himself as a superb attorney. He does easily what most attorneys cannot do at all. He is bright, honest, reliable and makes no promises he cannot keep. He fights tenaciously for his clients and is an expert with the law. I was very fortunate to have found Jerod Gunsberg for myself and I recommend him highly above all others.

I needed a good lawyer, but found a great one in Jerod Gunsberg. My life was difficult with the huge cloud of uncertainty hanging over me, but that all changed after my 1st sit down with Jerod. His knowledge and confidence eased my fear of the unknown and allowed me to get back to leading a normal life. He was accessible through the process and did everything possible to help me succeed. I'm thankful to Jerod for his guidance and support through this trying time and, I could never fully express my gratitude. If you need help, PLEASE, contact him.

Jerod is one of those few attorneys that gets it. He consistently puts his clients' interests first and is truly the type of advocate folks need during tough times. Jerod is someone I turn to when I need a fresh, trusted perspective. For all these reasons and more, I endorse and recommend Jerod's services 100%. If you happen to live in the LA area, be happy someone like Jerod has your back should you ever need it.

I strongly endorse this lawyer. Mr. Gunsberg is my go to lawyer for all criminal matters in Los Angeles. I have found him to be intelligent, knowledgeable, and responsive. I believe he is committed to getting the best possible results for his clients. He has a broad understanding of criminal law issues, and has sound judgement. He also cares about what happens to his clients, which is perhaps the most important thing to look for in a criminal lawyer when you are facing the loss of your freedom.
