  • Matthew R. Gebhardt

    I have known Melissa since 1999 when I began my career as a prosecutor. At the time, Melissa was a public defender. We tried many cases against each other. She was always well prepared and ready for trial. I have always held her work in the highest regard and can highly endorse her.
