What distinguishes one criminal defense attorney from another?
Years in practice? Depth and range of experience? An understanding of the legal system at every level of the judicial process? A background that includes distinguished service as a state and federal prosecutor? Personalized attention that’s straightforward, honest, and practical as well as effective? Independent, objective third-party evaluations of the attorney’s qualifications, personal integrity, and professional excellence?
Those are the questions facing everyone and anyone facing criminal prosecution or investigation – a demanding but crucial set of criteria and standards.
By all of those measures, the criminal defense team of Gerald S. Gold and John S. Pyle is exceptional.
Year after year, both have been recognized and acclaimed as “Super Lawyers” who have met the rigorous selection criteria that include high regard among their peers, high ethical standards, and significant achievement in their areas of practice. Gold, a nationally distinguished career criminal defense attorney, and Pyle, a former assistant county prosecutor and assistant U.S. Attorney later honored as one of the top criminal defense lawyers in Ohio, consistently meet those standards.
Likewise, one of the most respected, authoritative legal resources in the world, Martindale-Hubbell, a 140-year-old organization with a database of more than one million lawyers and law firms in more than 160 countries, has assigned its highest “Preeminent” rating to Gold and to Pyle.
Since 1981, these two attorneys have worked closely together to provide the kind of comprehensive, effective legal representation and professional counsel that meets the challenging needs of their clients – while also winning the hard-earned respect of the courts, prosecutors, their peers in the legal community, and law enforcement agencies.
