Criminal Defense Attorney in Woodbridge

If you are presently caught up in the criminal justice system, then the sooner you enlist the services of a Woodbridge criminal lawyer, the better. You have the legal right to defend yourself, regardless of the severity of the charges you presently face and regardless of your guilt or innocence. The legal system can come down hard on people and when you are potentially facing years behind bars, you deserve nothing less than a top-notch legal defense. At my firm, the Law Offices of Ryan E. Gilbert, LLC, I have been defending clients for nearly two decades. I understand how frightening it is to face criminal charges and I will therefore fight tooth and nail on your behalf.

A criminal conviction is something that should be avoided at all costs since a criminal record would affect your family, your job, and your finances permanently. If you were sent to prison, what would happen to your family or your career, would they buckle under the pressure? I understand exactly what you have to lose and for that reason, I am prepared to carefully question every aspect of your case. I am admitted to the bars of both New York and New Jersey and I can assist you in virtually any type of municipal or criminal offense.

Aggressive Defense

As your local criminal attorney, I can provide comprehensive criminal defense representation all throughout Woodbridge and the greater Middlesex and Monmouth County areas. Whether you are facing charges for DUI & DWI, or a traffic offense, or municipal court offense, I can help. If you are a parent whose son or daughter has been arrested for a juvenile offense, I can seek out lighter sentencing and penalties on their behalf, if not a dismissal.

I can also assist those who are facing charges of domestic violence, assault, battery, and theft crimes including shoplifting. My firm also represents clients in various types of drug cases such as drug possession and drug distribution. For more serious charges including: sex crimes, weapons offenses, terrorists threats, harassment, white collar crimes, fraud and serious violent felonies, I can provide an aggressive defense for those charges as well.

Skilled and Meticulous Legal Representation

No matter how serious the criminal case, a strong and detailed oriented attorney can make a huge impact on the direction the case takes. I care about you, your family and your future. From the moment I take on your case, I will closely review the details while searching for any errors made by law enforcement or any violations of your constitutional rights. Even the smallest detail, can be the one to exonerate you. If you are facing criminal charges, I urge you to contact my firm to schedule your free consultation. Once I examine the details of your case, I can start tailoring an effective defense strategy on your behalf.

    "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!
