A Professor
Mr. Gibson SAVED my life through his incredibly meticulous, understanding, and nonjudgmental approach. He is THE MOST WONDERFUL CRIMINAL ATTORNEY in the world! I especially appreciated his sincere sympathy while he displayed the utmost professional conduct while I was going through a horrid time: the time of my most embarrassing mistake of my life. For this and for Mr. Gibson, always having approached me with a stellar empathy and kindness, I will respect, admire, appreciate him (Mr. Gibson), and will always be sincerely thankful for having his representation and support in my darkest hours for the rest of my life. If Mr. Gibson had not helped me during my arrest and charge, I would not have a career, nor a family; perhaps...not even a life right now. FOREVER GRATEFUL....

Very Pleased
Mr. Gibson and his staff were knowledgeable, concerned and compassionate in handling my son's case. They offered sound advice, were upfront in our discussions and willing to meet with us at any time. They worked hard on our behalf and that resulted in a favorable decision for my son.

Great experience with Gibson Law Office!
We have a niece who was arrested for minor consumption while attending a concert at Klipsch Music Center (Noblesville). Complicating matters was the fact that she lived on the west coast and needed to return to college. Thankfully, Brett and team were able to work out a diversion agreement so that my niece would not be convicted nor have to return to court (back in Indiana) for an appearance. Brett was very respectful and honest during our discussions. He was very approachable and kept us routinely updated throughout the process. We are very pleased with the representation that Brett provided and we would definitely hire him again!

Most knowledgeable and hard working attorney in the midwest region of the united states
I had asked for Mr. Gibson's help on a charge that could have kept me from ever finding another job again. He discussed the outcomes and his strategies to get the best outcome. He was so honest with what to expect, I could tell he knew what he was doing and was the best attorney for the job. I had called different attornies and none of them could give me a direct answer. They just best around the Bush so to speak. Not Mr. Gibson. He is VERY good at his job and is the expert in the court room. I'll never go anywhere else if I land myself in a predicament again. Thanks to him I can still find work in this country.

Great Attorney
Brett was great to deal with. Took care of all legal proceedings, keeping me from having to appear in person as much as possible. Very clear and articulate with legal jargon, etc. Highly recommend.

Look Elsewhere for an Attorney
The attorney failed to come prepared. He didn't research the facts or present the required documents. I felt as though I wasn't even represented.
