What Our Clients Say About Us

Never having worked with a lawyer before, Mr. Gebhardt made sure that I understood all steps of the process and kept me informed every step of the way. He made me feel very comfortable with the decisions I was making and fought to make sure that I had the smoothest trial possible. I recommend Matthew to anyone looking for a reliable, trustworthy, hardworking attorney.

Matthew R. Gebhardt

I first met Matt several months ago when I needed help with a criminal defense case. This was a very difficult time for me and I consider myself fortunate to have found an Attorney that is not only extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the law but very professional and honest. Matt is very straight forward and does not tell his clients “what they want to hear” he tells it like it is and “goes above and beyond” to make sure his clients are given the best representation possible. Matt is able to interpret the law and then explain my options in a manner that I could understand. If you are reading this because you are in need of an Attorney I would strongly suggest that you contact Matthew Gebhardt immediately.

Recommendation for Matt Gebhardt

I first met Matt a few years ago when I had a traffic court case. He handled the case in a stellar, professional manner. He is very knowledgeable in his field and is extremely trustworthy. Having worked with a couple of attorneys on various issues through the years, I had come to distrust attorneys. Matt turned all of that around completely. While he must be and should be paid for his services, Matt does not put money first. He is a different kind of attorney because…he cares. I was so confident and will remain that way, that I recommended him when my daughter had a traffic court case. I also recommended him for a criminal misdemeanor court case. Both my daughter and the other client were completely satisfied with the results. He lived up to his hard and well-earned reputation. If one should hire Matt, and I strongly recommend that you do for any case, please be honest with him because he operates on an honest principle. Good or bad, right or wrong he will fight for you to get the best possible end result. He does not sugar coat anything, but is straightforward. He is also non-judgmental while being very personable. I could go on and on about Matt but I think the point has been made very clear. Now I not only view him as a professional, I view him as my family attorney and yes, even a friend.
