I first met Matt a few years ago when I had a traffic court case. He handled the case in a stellar, professional manner. He is very knowledgeable in his field and is extremely trustworthy. Having worked with a couple of attorneys on various issues through the years, I had come to distrust attorneys. Matt turned all of that around completely. While he must be and should be paid for his services, Matt does not put money first. He is a different kind of attorney because...he cares. I was so confident and will remain that way, that I recommended him when my daughter had a traffic court case. I also recommended him for a criminal misdeameanor court case. Both my daughter and the other client were completely satisfied with the results. He lived up to his hard and well earned reputation. If one should hire Matt, and I strongly recommend that you do for any case, please be honest with him because he operates on an honest principle. Good or bad, right or wrong he will fight for you to get the best possible end result. He does not sugar coat anything, but is straightforward. He is also non-judgmental while being very personable. I could go on and on about Matt but I think the point has been made very clear. Now I not only view him as a professional, I view him as my family attorney and yes, even a friend.

He made the process of buying and closing on the short sale condo that we bought very easy and kept us updated throughout the process. For the service he provided it was a very good price.

Never having worked with a lawyer before, Mr. Gebhardt made sure that I understood all steps of the process and kept me informed every step of the way. He made me feel very comfortable with the decisions I was making and fought to make sure that I had the smoothest trial possible. I recommend Matthew to anyone looking for a reliable, trustworthy, hardworking attorney.
