I was on vacation with my family from out of state. Not even an hour into our 10+ hour drive home, I was issued a speeding ticket for driving 53 in a 35 mph zone. If I were local to the area, I would normally appear in court on my own but as I live out of state, my options were limited. I was impressed by Mr. Keefer's reviews so I figured it was worth a try. Mr. Keefer and his staff (Lisa and Beth) were polite, courteous and efficiently communicated with me through the entire process. They walked me through every step of the way and quickly answered any questions I had. Mr. Keefer mentioned there was a chance he could get my ticket dismissed during our initial call but I was very pleasantly surprised to have the official court record dismissing my case with Mr. Keefer's representation. I hope I won't need an attorney again anytime soon but in the event I do, Mr. Keefer would be the first lawyer I would recommend in the area.

My son was pulled over for speeding while we were on vacation. What we thought was a speeding ticket turned out to be a driving to endanger charge. No fine to pay, he got a court date.
We contacted Bob Keefer's Office to help us through this ordeal. Let me start by saying that our initial contact with his office was with Beth. She is extremely pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. Also, we knew instantly after the consultation with Bob that we hired the right attorney. He put our minds at ease that he should be able to reduce the charge to improper control/driving and minimize the fine. WHICH HE DID! Being from a different state, as well as never having gone through anything like this before was daunting. I recommend hiring Bob for the peace of mind you'll receive and the expertise he offers.

Bob and I conferred after I received a reckless driving citation in Virginia. He was very pleasant to speak with, amiable even. He expressed great confidence in the ability to handle the case and get the desired result, not going to jail....
He did exactly what he stated he would and I couldn't be happier.
Thank You Bob, you saved me.

On September 2014, I hired Mr. Bob (Robert) Keefer to represent me for a reckless driving charge, excessive speeding over 80mph, in Page County General District Court. He made some promises such as hiring someone to do the math regarding my speed and keeping me out of jail, and he failed on both.
On the day of my trial he told me not to come to the court otherwise I will be put in jail immediately. The outcome was that I was found guilty in my absence. He did not put up a fight in the court; he did not do any legal action; not only did he not hire somebody to do the math but also he failed to request the necessary documents related to the radar or to challenge the accuracy of the radar. The only thing he did was trying to alleviate the consequences (damage control) by sending me a to-do-list including community service, defensive driving course, character reference letters, etc., all of which I fulfilled.
The day after my trial, he call me and said the state trooper showed a video of me flying by him, and the prosecutor and the judge want me back for sentencing. He said do not come back to Virginia or they will put me in jail for a year and then I will get deported. This is in contrary to our three-way telephone conversation between me, Mr. Keefer (my criminal attorney at the time), and my immigration lawyer, that I am not going to get deported due to this incidence. So it was clear that I will not get deported although I might face difficulties for renewing my visa or applying for green card in the future.
Mr. Keefer not only kept warning me about appearing in the court, he also misrepresented me. There were several issues with my arrest and my charge that he failed to recognize and address. For example, I was not mirandized immediately after my arrest and, while in custody, the trooper interrogated me for 15 minutes until he remembered to read my rights.
When I finally decided to appear in Page County General District Court to settle the case, I asked Mr. Keefer to arrange a meeting between me and the prosecutor and he agreed. But after showing up empty-handed in the court with half an hour delay, he talked me out of meeting with the prosecutor to make deal bargain. He did not bring to the court any documents related to my case. He started by making arguments, which I did not approve of, about me getting deported as a result of this reckless driving misdemeanor charge. His arguments were nonsense and his concluding statement that I will be deported was wrong and in contrary to what he was told by my immigration attorney.
Right before the sentencing, the prosecutor and the judge were complaining for not having my DMV driving records (which I had already given them to Mr. Keefer). Fortunately, I had copies of all the documents I had given to Mr. Keefer, and just before things got worse I provided the court with a copy of my driving records. In the court I also found out that Mr. Keefer did not provide the prosecutor the letter from my immigration attorney regarding the negative outcomes of a criminal charge on my student visa status and my future stay in the US. This is in contrary to what he implied in his conversations with me regarding the refusal of the prosecutor for offering me a different disposition.
In conclusion, I found Mr. Keefer to be highly UNRELIABLE, not trustworthy at all, and very little knowledge of the law. He said I will go to jail immediately after the sentencing (which is not true for general district court) and the judge might refuse to allow me release from jail on a bond, which is not true either (just to scare me off from coming back to Virginia to learn that he had done nothing for me). He said I will get deported after serving my time in jail, which is obviously not correct. He did not know that the video of me admitting to speeding about 100mph cannot be used against me because I was not read my Miranda rights after getting arrested (I told him this later).

Mr. Keefer is an amazing lawyer and I was truly blessed to have found him. I was pulled over at three in the morning going 65 in a 35mph zone and was looking at a reckless driving charge, a huge fine, and even potential jail time. After doing some research my mom and I contacted the Keefer law firm to help us with my case. From the very beginning Mr. Keefer and his office did everything in their power to make us feel comfortable and that we were being taken care of. He was very professional throughout the entire process, and did a great job collecting all the necessary information to help with my defense. On the day of my trial I could not have asked for a better lawyer in my corner, as soon as he walked in the room he engaged me and my mom and made sure we understood the process and what his plan of action was going to be. After talking to the officer and the prosecutor, Mr. Keefer was able to get my charge reduced to improper driving, saving my family thousands of dollars in fines and future insurance costs, and sparing me the burden of a class one misdemeanor on my record. He truly saved the day. I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Keefer and his law firm. I would highly recommend his services for anyone finding themselves in a similar situation.

I was recently charged with a serious offense that was going to cost me my commercial driver’s license. I contacted Keefer Law Firm right away to help me. Beth and Lisa, who work in Bob’s office, were great about keeping me informed. Bob worked very hard to gather the information necessary to show I was not guilty. We ended up having a hearing where my charges were dismissed. Bob spent the entire day in court for my case. I cannot say enough good things about Keefer Law Firm.

I work for a company that has strict driving policies. When I got a speeding ticket a few weeks ago, the best decision I could make was to call Bob. He is specific, straightforward and knowledgeable. He walked me through everything that I needed to do on my part and kept me informed on the process up through when the charges were dismissed. I would recommend him to anyone in need of legal advice.

Unfortunately I got pulled over for having my tags expired, they were already paid for but never get them in the mail. After the officer said they were not paid for ... He then proceeded to acuse of me of drinking and driving... Ended up giving me a reckless driving ticket and towing my car for no reason. Called Bob, who imedietly jumped on my case and got it reduced to improper driving. Thanks Bob!!
