Jerod Gunsberg represents clients in all California state and federal criminal matters, from first time misdemeanors – including DUI – to violent offenses to complex white collar matters. He is also deeply involved in emerging areas of criminal law such as medical marijuana defense, financial elder abuse, computer crime, and juvenile delinquency law.
Mr. Gunsberg graduated from New York University where he was a University Honors Scholar. He received his law degree from Loyola Law School where he received First Honors in Trial Advocacy. After law school, Mr. Gunsberg was awarded a fellowship with Public Counsel where he advised staff attorneys about criminal justice issues. Mr. Gunsberg was then recruited by some of Los Angeles County’s top criminal defense trial lawyers to represent clients on serious felony matters including murders, sex offenses, major narcotics cases, and complex fraud cases at both the state and federal level.
Mr. Gunsberg also regularly handles misdemeanors, including DUI cases, and brings the same sense of purpose as he does to felony cases. “I’ve seen the consequences of what happens when misdemeanor cases are not handled properly. I’ve seen people sit in jail and lose their jobs when they didn’t need to, when there were other alternatives. I don’t let that happen to my clients.”
Additionally, Mr. Gunsberg defends children and teenagers in the criminal justice system. He received a national award for his work in defending minors in Los Angeles County’s juvenile courts and was featured in the Los Angeles Times for his work towards juvenile justice reform. Mr. Gunsberg has represented juvenile clients on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Public Counsel, and is frequently retained by other criminal defense attorneys as an expert consultant on juvenile delinquency matters.
