One of the hallmarks of an effective law firm is how past clients and one's peers grade your performance. For more than 3 decades, attorneys at our firm, Gounaris Abboud, LPA have provided high quality, professional defense counsel to those facing all types of offenses, including federal crimes. Not all criminal defense attorneys are admitted to practice in federal court. Our firm has an impressive record of success in federal court, and we offer our services to those who are under investigation by federal authorities, or have been charged in federal court.
As a result of past cases and results, we have been given a "Superb" 10/10 ranking on the attorney rating website Avvo.com. One of our founding partners was given the distinction of being included in the Ohio Super Lawyers® list for the years 2011 and 2012. In order to be chosen for this list, an attorney must undergo an extensive peer evaluation and nomination process. Less than 5% of attorneys in Ohio have this distinction. Several others of our founding lawyers were also chosen for inclusion in the list of Super Lawyers® Rising Stars ℠, an achievement accomplished by only 2.5% of attorneys in our state.
