Gregory A. Gentile
Mr. Gentile graduated from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in 2008 and
has practiced in the area of criminal defense for his entire career. He
has worked with the attorneys at Friedman & Nemecek, L.L.C. for several
years and currently assists the firm in an
Of-Counsel capacity, representing clients in felony and misdemeanor criminal cases
throughout the State of Ohio.
Although he has handled a wide range of criminal offenses, Mr. Gentile
devotes a significant portion of his practice to defending clients who
are charged with traffic-related offenses, including individuals who are
cited for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence (“OVI”).
Mr. Gentile understands the substantial consequences for those charged
with OVI and traffic-related offenses, including the loss of driving privileges,
negative effects on employment, as well as the possibility of incarceration
and the imposition of fines. He devotes ample time and resources to reviewing
each case and identifying issues to attack the investigation and evidence
produced by the State. He has successfully litigated numerous OVI cases
throughout his career, often obtaining a reduction or outright dismissal
of the criminal charges.
Mr. Gentile’s professional career has also included involvement in
State Bar Associations. He is a life-member of the Cleveland-Marshall
College of Law Alumni Association and has been named a Rising Star by
the Ohio Super Lawyers Magazine, which is an honor limited to the top
2.5% of Ohio lawyers under the age of 40. He is a frequent lecturer at
legal seminars hosted by local Bar Associations and Universities, including
the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association, the Cleveland-Marshall College
of Law, the Parma Bar Association, the University of Akron School of Law,
Kent State University and Ursuline College. He also routinely teaches
at the court-ordered 3-day Alternative to Jail Program, which is mandated
by individuals who are charged with and/or convicted of OVI offenses.
