South River Criminal Defense Lawyer

Were you recently arrested for a crime, or are you currently under investigation for a criminal offense? If your answer is yes, then you need to take immediate action to protect yourself from the harsh criminal justice system. Even if you are entirely innocent of the allegations against you, sometimes being innocent simply isn't enough. If the truth could set you free, then there wouldn't be such thing as wrongful convictions and the miscarriage of justice. As a criminal defense attorney and the founder of the Law Offices of Ryan E. Gilbert, LLC, I am here to defend you every step of the way.

Whether you are innocent, or if you made a mistake, you deserve to have your side of the story told loud and clear. Good people make mistakes every day and that doesn't mean they deserve to be locked away for years to come. I strongly urge you to contact me right away so I can review the specifics of your case; I take every case very personally and make it my personal vow to do everything I can to help make your situation better. I am admitted to the bars in both New York and New Jersey, and I have been practicing law in the greater Middlesex and Monmouth Counties for nearly two decades.

Legal Defense Practice Areas

I am proud to represent clients in a broad range of practice areas including municipal court offenses, traffic offenses and DUI & DWI cases. I can also help parents whose children have been arrested for a juvenile offense, and I can help those that have been charged with assault or domestic violence. I represent clients in their drug crime cases including drug possession and drug distribution.

If you have been accused of a theft crime such as shoplifting, a weapons offense, any type of white collar crime, or if you have been charged with harassment, terrorist threats, eluding, fraud or a serious violent crime, I will do everything possible to find holes in the prosecution's case and errors made by law enforcement. Anything that can be done to improve your final case outcome will be pursued.

Enlist in Experienced Defense

If you or someone you love is caught up in the criminal justice system, please take a moment to contact my office today. I offer a free consultation to my prospective clients where we can review the details of their case. The sooner you take action in retaining a legal representative, the better your chances of reaching a favorable case result. I care deeply about my clients and their future and I will stop at nothing to do what I can to make your outcome better.

    "My case had a successful outcome."
    Ryan was compassionate, intelligent, efficient and thorough; he gave good advice, represented me in court, and was successful in winning a reduction in my property taxes. I wholeheartedly recommend him. I know he handles other types of cases as well.

    "Great job protecting my future"
    Ryan was a trusted adviser throughout the course of my legal issues. I was unfamiliar with legal proceedings and Ryan was able to explain to me my legal situation, and risks associated with various defenses and decisions I had to make. He took the time to explain all the scenarios to my satisfaction which gave me piece of mind and comfort. Ryan was also very responsive through various forms of communications (phone, email, text) which made keeping in contact convenient throughout the process. Ryan showed up on time (early in fact) to various appointments and appeared to handle relationship building effectively with opposing attorneys and the prosecutor. At the end of the day, I was very satisfied with the work done by Ryan as the outcome of my legal matter was better than I had expected and kept my reputation in tact, which undoubtedly will help me pursue my future career/professional ambitions.

    "Professionalism at its best"
    Mr. Gilbert has made my case easy and clear to understand without all the legal jargon. He took time to help me clearly understand my case and kept me updated with all occurrences. Also, the case had been postponed and he waited alongside and had a friendly chat at the nearby Starbucks and besides giving me a great case result, he made me feel as if I had someone by my side. Patient, honest, and soft spoken, Ryan is not someone else whom just told me what to do and I just say yes too, like previous attorneys I had. I will always suggest and use Ryan Gilbert as my attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Attentive, fast responding, professional, expert"
    Attentive, fast responding, professional and expert is how I would describe the attention and service that I received from Mr. Gilbert. He solved my matter quickly and explained in very clear terms each step and set expectation for action on all sides. I was very pleased with how my matter was resolved and would recommend Mr. Gilbert to those requiring legal services. If needed I would absolutely seek Mr. Gilbert's council again.
    - Former Client
    "An invaluable asset to anyone"
    Mr. Gilbert is an excellent attorney. His knowledge and experience make him an invaluable asset to anyone looking for an attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Ryan could not have been more helpful"
    I found myself in quite a situation and Ryan could not have been more helpful in my time of need. Ryan worked tirelessly and did whatever he could to secure for me the best possible outcome. Even when I first called, I never could have imagined having my case resolve as positively as it did. Thank you so much Ryan!
