In addition, Dan is a member of the Bucks County Orphan’s Court Attorney Appointment List in which he receives court appointments to represent parties in guardianship and termination of parental rights litigation matters.


 


Dan’s family law practice includes representing clients in all domestic matters such as divorce, child and spousal support and child custody. He regularly drafts and negotiates important domestic contracts such as property settlement agreements and pre- and post-nuptial agreements.

    On several criminal matters, Daniel Keane and I were opposing counsel. In each case, I was impressed by Mr. Keane's case preparation and thorough understanding of the legal matters involved. Moreover, Mr. Keane was a zealous advocate who displayed excellent trial skills at all times.
