Gerald Shargel (born 1944) is a high-profile defense attorney based in New York City who has been a member of the New York Bar since 1969. He has garnered attention as both a trial and appellate lawyer, representing white-collar clients and ordinary criminal defendants, but is most famous for, along with Bruce Cutler, securing the acquittal of John Gotti Sr. in 1991 on charges that he had ordered the assault of a labor union official.

One of his most recent high-profile clients was Daniel Pelosi, who had been charged and convicted of the second-degree murder of East Hampton millionaire Ted Ammon.

Shargel serves as a Practitioner-In-Residence at Brooklyn Law School, where he is a professor of Evidence and Criminal Procedure. He also serves as a frequent writer and commentator on legal issues that arise during high profile criminal cases, which generate sustained national and regional media focus.
