Gary S. Bernstein is a former prosecutor who has been working in private practice for 40 years. His primary focus is criminal defense but he also handles personal injury matters.
Operating his practice from Launch Workplaces in Towson, Maryland, Gary is professionally known for trying cases to secure the best possible outcomes for his clients—leading him to embrace the mantra, “No Plea.”
We wanted to learn a bit more about Gary. So, we asked him a few questions about his business, his greatest learnings as an entrepreneur, and the wisdom he’d share with other professionals.
Here’s what he told us.
What is the best lesson you’ve learned as a professional or as an entrepreneur?
As a lawyer, your reputation as a skilled litigator and an honest opponent is paramount. I have a friendly relationship with all the prosecutors and judges, so there is nothing better than being in court.
What’s the best bit of wisdom to offer to up-and-coming entrepreneurs and professionals?
Whatever you do make sure you know everything about your case or your business. There are no shortcuts! You have to put the time and effort in, no matter how small the case.
What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Don’t cut corners. Treat your clients like they are family. I do.
What piece of advice would you give out to people chasing their dreams?
You will face obstacles and setbacks, but you don’t give up on your plans.
How did you come to Launch Workplaces and what has your experience been?
My former suite mate retired so I didn’t need a large suite. I came over and met with Shawntaye and she found the perfect suite for my needs. I can think of no reason to move to another location—this is the last move for my law office!
