About Matthew

Learn Matthew’s areas of practice.

Mr. Gerber has a broad range and vast experience litigating complex issues throughout the State of New Jersey surrounding family and matrimonial cases, including child custody, parenting time, relocation, child support, alimony, asset distribution, domestic violence and more. Mr. Gerber has appeared at countless matrimonial and domestic violence trials. He is skilled in matters of high net worth where business valuations or other significant assets require forensic accountants and where witness testimony may be a necessity. He is equally proficient handling trials concerning child custody and relocation. He has also handled numerous fact finding hearings involving the Department of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP), and successfully had false claims of abuse and neglect dismissed by the trial court.

Naturally, not every matter is heavily contested with an expectation of trial, and as such, Mr. Gerber is a seasoned negotiator, dedicated to reaching fair settlements whenever cases can be resolved without the need for litigation. In this regard, Mr. Gerber has also served as a volunteer for the court’s Early Settlement Panel (ESP) program, helping litigants resolve their divorce cases.

Through his years of practice, Mr. Gerber has assisted clients in municipal court matters all throughout New Jersey and participated in a wide variety of civil litigation including personal injury and business disputes, all of which compliment his ability to help clients successfully navigate the complexities of family law litigation. During his time as a Law Clerk in the Superior Court, Mr. Gerber served as a mediator in small claims and landlord – tenant court. Mr. Gerber uses his knowledge of other areas of law to assist clients to reach a rightful resolution to their family law related cases.

Mr. Gerber is a member of the New Jersey State Bar Association and the Somerset County Bar Association.

I'm still dealing with and it won't probably end soon to make things right for my daughter. I went through many lawyers and it was an emotional nightmare. Just when I was about to give up somehow I found Mr Gerber. We just started together but he cares, works hard, loaded with easing information and an amazing person. He has made my horrible experience feel like there's hope. I hope and wish everyone going through this tough time finds him faster than I did. I highly recommend Mr Gerber. Good luck.

Efficient and supportive
Matt handled my divorce proceedings simply and efficiently. He thoroughly and promptly answered my many questions, made all requested modifications to the agreements, and communicated with my ex and all officials so that I didn't have to. The filing and court procedures changed significantly during the pandemic, but Matt took care of everything without issue. From start to finish my divorce took about three months and I was very happy with my financial outcome.

TRO trial
If you need any help with your TRO trial. You need to contact Mr.Gerber. As a defendant attorney, He is straight like an arrow and tell you how everything is with his experience. His preparation, and his work amazed me. He gave me great confidence and the results I wanted. I did my homework on searching for attorney over the web. And he was my #1 candidate.

Grandparent custody
Matthew helped us get and maintain custody of our grandson. It is not easy to fight your own child for custody but sometime you must. Matthew was very professional, ethical and patient. We had many questions and issues and he was responsive and available through the process to answer questions and provide options.

Battle for my son
I initially retained WLG for the fight against the TRO with my sons mother. We won that fight and I was so impressed with the performance and results that I asked to have my existing retainers transferred over to him. This second half of the legal fight is just about to begin but I have confidence in Matt and WLG to get me the results I want.
