Since appearing in the 2011 New York Metro Super Lawyers Magazine article “The Don of Criminal Defense Attorneys”, Shargel has moved from small law to big law. In June 2013, Shargel left his own practice of four decades, Law Offices of Gerald L. Shargel, and joined Winston & Strawn in New York City as a partner: “It’s a big change to go from a four-person practice to a firm with 900 lawyers,” he says. “It’s relieved me of all the responsibilities of ownership, so it’s very positive.”

 
Shargel continues to work in criminal law. He handled a “love-triangle murder trial” in Kingston, New York this past summer, in which his client, a dentist, was acquitted. “A friend of mine who lives up in that area said, ‘We don’t get many dentists charged with murders up here.’”
