Client Testimonials

Fighting for Every Inch. If There is a Will, There is a Way.

Keeley’s legal philosophy is simple: She puts herself in her clients’ shoes. She often asks herself: ‘How far would I want my attorney to take my case?’ And her answer is always as far as possible. She is driven to get results and is unwavering when it comes to negotiating or litigating her clients’ cases in or out of court.

She will be your legal advocate and will stand by you from the beginning until the end. She won’t judge you or think less of you. She understands that mistakes happen and that sometimes it’s just a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. That’s why she is extremely aggressive in her approach.

Whether you are accused of committing crimes related to drugs, a sex crime, theft or domestic abuse or are seeking help for a probation violation, she will be the strong ally you need on your side. If you or a loved one has been severely injured in a personal injury accident involving a car crash or wrongful death, she will be a fierce advocate who will empower you, help you get your voice heard, and seek the compensation you need to recover and start anew. And, if you were arrested and are facing DUI or boating under the influence (BUI) charges, as a skilled trial attorney, she will leverage her extensive knowledge and experience in defending you.
