A Word from Attorney Gebhardt:

I understand that looking for an attorney can be quite overwhelming no matter what the reason is for your search. I hope you find the information provided on this site informative and useful for your current situation.

Although the information provided on this site is quite detailed, it does not delve into one of the most important issues you need to investigate when hiring an attorney. Undoubtedly, the most important aspect of a successful attorney client/relationship is communication. Without good communication between the client and attorney important facts can get overlooked and the ultimate goal you are trying to achieve can be lost forever.

At my firm, I pride myself on having direct communication with all of my clients. I am available to my clients at any time via phone, email or texting. Your question or concern will always be addressed by me. I will never defer your matter to an assistant or paralegal. I handle all aspects of your legal matter personally. I believe it is this commitment to personal communication that has enabled my practice to thrive for nearly twenty years. I offer no fee consultations so you can decide without risk whether or not I can meet, and hopefully, exceed your expectations. I look forward to hearing from you.
