Interview with Nick Gounaris – Dayton OVI Defense Attorney
What inspired you to become a lawyer?
My father was a lawyer and then a Judge. I always looked up to him and at a young age was always around the legal system.
Why did you decide on criminal defense?
I’ve served as an Acting Judge, an Acting Magistrate, and as a Prosecutor. However, I’ve always rooted for the underdog and fought for those who face great adversity. Being a criminal defense attorney is the ultimate job for someone who wants to help others that are in dire need.
Are you known for a particular skill or specialty?
Being a criminal defense attorney, you need to know how to try cases. Growing up, I was always competing in school and in sports. Going to trial provides that same level of competition and in order to be a trial attorney, you need to know how to compete and to be an advocate. My particular skill or specialty is being the best advocate I can be for my clients.
Is there a past case that you handled that you are particularly proud of?
Every time we can properly represent our client provides a sense of pride. Every case has a relative importance to all our clients. Whether big or small, it is so satisfying to provide the best care that I can for each of my clients.
What sets your firm apart from the rest?
We care. The people at Gounaris Abboud care. We don’t take every case because we want to make sure we can have time for all our clients. We believe that taking care of our clients, spending time with them, and understanding the things that they need is what sets us apart.
