In cases involving criminal charges, it is crucial to secure legal representation from an attorney who has experience defending clients in the Libertyville area. At The Law Offices of Matthew R. Gebhardt, P.C., we understand the difficulties that people face during criminal cases, and we are dedicated to providing the guidance and support needed to resolve these matters while minimizing the ways their lives are affected. We can provid representation in multiple types of cases, including: 

Drug Crimes

The Law Offices of Matthew R. Gebhardt, P.C. offers experienced defense for a range of drug crimes, ensuring our clients' rights are protected while helping them take steps to safeguard their futures. We can help defend against charges of:

  • Drug possession: A person who is found in possession of illegal controlled substances such as methamphetamines or heroin or who uses prescription drugs without authorization may face serious criminal charges. Our attorneys can help clients take steps to reduce or dismiss charges related to the possession of controlled substance, and we can explore options such as drug treatment or diversion programs when appropriate.
  • Drug manufacturing and delivery: Offenses related to the production and distribution of controlled substances are more serious than those involving simple drug possession. These offenses carry severe penalties, including lengthy prison terms. The Law Offices of Matthew R. Gebhardt, P.C. can help defend against these charges by examining the evidence, questioning the reliability of informants, and challenging any procedural errors made by law enforcement officials.
  • Drug trafficking: Charges related to the large-scale distribution of controlled substances are usually treated as serious felonies. The Law Offices of Matthew R. Gebhardt, P.C. can help develop comprehensive defense strategies against these types of charges. We will work tirelessly to identify weaknesses in the prosecution's case and advocate for reduced charges or alternative sentencing options.

Sex Offenses

Sex crime allegations will not only carry serious criminal penalties, but they can destroy a person's reputation, damage their relationships with friends and family members, and harm their career. The Law Offices of Matthew R. Gebhardt, P.C. can provide effective legal representation in these sensitive cases, providing clients with discretion and working to defend their names. We can provide legal help for people accused of offenses such as:

  • Sexual assault: Accusations of non-consensual sexual contact or activity can be very serious. We can help respond to false accusations and take steps to demonstrate our clients' innocence.
  • Indecency with a child: Allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct involving minors may cause someone to be labeled as a sexual predator, regardless of the validity of these claims. We can work to address these accusations and protect our clients' reputations.
  • Internet sex crimes: Sexual offenses that involving computers or the internet, such as the possession or distribution of child pornography, may involve complex digital evidence and other factors. We can help clients determine the best defense strategies to use in these cases, such as focusing on the legality of evidence collection and the reliability of digital data. We will work diligently to challenge accusations and criminal charges while protecting our clients' rights.

DUI Charges

Criminal charges of driving under the influence (DUI) can affect people's lives in many ways. The Law Offices of Matthew R. Gebhardt, P.C. works to ensure that our clients receive the best possible representation as they defend against accusations of drunk or intoxicated driving. We can assist with charges such as:

  • First-time DUI: A person who has never been convicted of DUI in the past may still face serious penalties. In these situations, we can help defend against convictions and determine what options may be available to prevent long-term consequences. We can also help a person regain their driving privileges and ensure they meet all requirements related to breath alcohol ignition interlock devices (BAIIDs).
  • Multiple DUI: If a person has previous DUI convictions, they will be less likely to receive lenient treatment. Penalties will increase with each DUI offense, and a person may face longer jail sentences, higher fines, and more time before they can regain their driving privileges. The Law Offices of Matthew R. Gebhardt, P.C. can provide a strong defense for people who are charged with repeat DUI offenses. If necessary, we can help apply for a restricted driving permit after a license suspension or revocation.
  • Drug-related DUI: A person who is accused of operating a vehicle under the influence of controlled substances may face DUI charges with the same penalties as if they had been drinking alcohol. The Law Offices of Matthew R. Gebhardt, P.C. works to protect our clients' rights in these situations and help them achieve the best possible outcomes to their cases.
  • Felony DUI: Intoxicated driving offenses involving severe injuries, fatalities, or multiple prior convictions may lead to felony charges. Because of the seriousness of these cases, legal representation is crucial. Our attorney can help defend against felony convictions while working to minimize our clients' potential penalties.

Other Felony and Misdemeanor Charges

The Law Offices of Matthew R. Gebhardt, P.C. provides defense in a wide range of felony and misdemeanor cases. Whether our clients are facing accusations of domestic battery, assault, murder, manslaughter, retail theft, credit card fraud, other criminal offenses, we can provide effective legal representation that addresses the specific issues involved in these cases.
