Mr. Keefer and his assistant Beth told us exactly what we needed to do the reduce the reckless driving charge my son received while a student at JMU. My son was relieved he would not even have to go to court. Mr. Keefer was able to have the charge reduced to improper speeding (a traffic violation rather than a criminal one). It was a very pleasant experience and I think, reasonably priced.
I hired Mr. Keefer about four months ago for a speeding ticket that I received. Mr. Keefer answered all of the questions that I had about the charge and what I needed to do. Keefer Law Firm's secretary Beth was more than helpful. Mr. Keefer got my traffic charged dismissed! I was more than happy and thankful!
I would recommend Mr. Keefer to anyone!
I was charged with drunk in public, open container, false identification, and underage possession of alcohol while visiting friends at JMU. I went to court with Mr. Keefer representing me and somehow he had all of the charges dismissed with 50 hours of community service and ASAP. I can not thank Mr. Keefer and Beth enough for their wonderful service in saving my record!!!!!! They are the best!!!
I cannot begin to describe how I feel right now. It's the polar opposite of how I felt when I was arrested. Multiplied by a hundred. I was recently arrested for a DWI in Harrisonburg. I felt as if my life had taken a turn for the worst. When I contacted Keefer Law Firm, I was planning on representing myself and taking whatever the court decided to give me. I am so glad I chose to go with Bob Keefer. Mr. Keefer and his office kept me updated on what was happening with my case He went over my case and found details of my arrest that were so substantial, my case was dismissed! I cannot thank Mr. Keefer and his offices enough for what they did for me! They have changed my life and have given me a second chance! THANK YOU KEEFER LAW FIRM!
I recently received a ticket for a traffic violation in Harrisonburg, VA outside of James Madison University Campus. Not being from the area, I contacted at least 15 attorneys. Their representation cost varied from $150 below Keefer Law Firm to $400 above Mr. Keefer’s law firm. I looked up these various attorneys on the internet and contacted them by phone. On the phone they all sounded polished but I can honestly say that among all the attorneys that I called and spoke to, Mr. Keefer was the only one that I felt confident pressing forward with. He told me that he has practiced law in the area for around 30 years. I found him to be a very knowledgeable man with a great deal of experience. I most of all liked his honesty and straight forwardness. He said that he can help me and delivered on that promise! I recommend Robert Keefer and the Keefer Law Firm.
I found myself facing serious charges, after what I thought was a routine license check. I was so taken aback, I realized later that while I should not have agreed to roadside tests, I was so flustered that I didn't clearly understand the instructions for the tests. Mr. Keefer was the perfect person to speak with. He listened to what I had to say and explained the process to me and steps that could be taken to mitigate my circumstances.
He and his staff were professional and I always felt attentive to my case. Their services went beyond what I normally expect from an attorney and their staff. The charge was reduced from reckless driving to improper driving. Hiring Mr. Keefer was money well spent.
Mr. Keefer "pulled" for our son. While we discussed our son having erred, Mr. Keefer informed him of what he needed to do regarding community service, character reference letters, etc. Mr. Keefer seemed genuinely interested in our son, and helped him work through "the process". I would recommend Bob Keefer to other parents and students at JMU who need to hire an attorney to represent their student. Mr. Keefer encouraged our son and gave him some direction, and I am happy to say that his down to earth and warm approach was helpful.
I was charged with a Reckless Driving offense in Virginia. I recieved communications from several law firms but decided to go with Keefer Law Firm because of their professional methods of communication. Also, their fee was less than some of the other people I talked to. They were able to help me out with the charge and I am very satisfied with both him and Beth. I would recommend them hight.
Mr. Keefer went the extra mile to get the result I desired for my case. He is very professional, thorough and easy to work with. His open minded prospective resulted in a dismissal of my case.
My JMU daughter was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident that resulted in her being charged with DUI after having a breath test reading of .20. After finding out the penalties included a mandatory minimum 5 day jail sentence, I started searching for attorneys who specialized in handling DUI cases. Bob Keefer's name came up immediately. I wanted two opinions so we interviewed another attorney who after hearing the details of our case stated he did not think there was any way he could help us and stated we should contact Bob Keefer, whom we were meeting later that day. Upon meeting Mr. Keefer, he told us straight out that it was a very difficult case and advised us of the penalties she was facing and that there is next to no plea bargaining. But he did find that the balance tests and HGN results did not correspond to a reading that high and gave us hope that we could at least get the reading lowered and not get the 5 days in jail, which is all we were hoping for at the time. He suggested that to prove our case, we needed to hire an expert witness trained in balance test results and their effect after being involved in a serious motor vehicle accident. On the day of our court case, Mr. Keefer was attempting to get the charge reduced to a refusal, which was still very serious but did not carry jail time or put an actual DUI on her driving record. He felt it was a very long shot that this could happen. After a long afternoon sitting in the courtroom and being told by Mr. Keefer that he was trying to work with the Prosecutor to get a deal done, the last case of the day was ours and Mr. Keefer was able to do even better than a refusal and got the charged reduced to RECKLESS DRIVING!!! I know this is still a criminal charge but no DUI, no jail time, no loss of license, no ignition interlock, and no DUI insurance surcharges. We could not believe when we heard the Prosecutor state that the charge was being reduced to this and could not have been happier with the result, knowing that a young person’s mistake could have had major implications for many years to come. This result would not have occurred if not for Mr. Keefer's tireless pursuit of a fair and just rendering of our case. He worked long and hard that afternoon to get the state to reduce the charge and not punish a young college graduate any more than she already had been. If not for his efforts, the ending would have been much worse than could be imagined. I did not think he was going to be able to get the original deal but he somehow got a miracle done. When we had our first meeting with Mr. Keefer, he was friendly and pleasant and explained everything to us and already had the case file which he went over in detail with us. He returned phone calls and emails promptly. Beth Todd was an absolute dream to work with either over the phone or via email. She handled everything proficiently, quickly, and professionally. I only wish I had the opportunity to meet her personally to thank her for all her time. There were many phone calls and emails and all were answered or returned promptly. I hope I never have the opportunity to use Bob Keefer again but if for some reason I did, there would not be a hesitation. He is a great person and an outstanding attorney whose knowledge in DUI is insurmountable. It was terrific watching him work and getting a final result that I never in my wildest dreams would have thought possible. Thank you so very much. You saved a good young girl who made one college mistake.
