Matt has excellent knowledge of the law and all the possible outcomes. He was extremely competent in court. He argued my side with a successful dismissal of all charges. I would definitely recommend Matt and I am beyond thankful I hired him to represent me.

Matt helped me through a tough time. I went to him in distress after getting a DUI, and he sat down and talked with me for over an hour and helped calm me down. I loved the fact that he was straight forward and never promised anything he knew he couldn't control. Anytime I called he was very quick to return my calls, and his staff is top of the line as well!

In a legal system full of "check the box" mentality, Matt Eichelberger cares about the truth. When our family came under attack, Matt stepped in and heard our side of the story, balanced against the facts of the case, and he walked fearlessly along with us until the court system's error was revealed. We shudder to think of what would have happened to us without his counsel and expertise.
Our case was unique in many aspects and involved a family court component in which he liaised with our family law attorney. He was invaluable in both sets of proceedings. We pray you never find yourself in the dire situation of needing a criminal defense attorney, but if you do, we strongly recommend you speak with Matt Eichelberger - immediately.
Jason Gilbert, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Matt is an exceptional advocate for his clients. When I was a prosecutor, I always knew I could rely on everything Matt told me. His integrity and reputation worked to the benefit of his clients in every case we were opposed on.
Matthew Easterling, Divorce and separation Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
Early in my career, I represented a couple in a Family Law case which had an unfortunate criminal element, and my clients made the wise decision to hire Matt to mount their defense. I could not have been more impressed. So, in the years since, I have directed all in need of Matt's talents in his direction. Anyone in the unfortunate position of needing a criminal defense attorney should contact him immediately and consider it a blessing if they are able to retain his firm's services. He is a master at his craft.
