    When facing serious criminal allegations, you need someone who is serious about criminal defense. I'm proud to be Keeley's partner because of the passion and skill she brings to criminal defense. She is constantly working to improve her trial advocacy skills so that she can better serve her clients. Keeley is a graduate of the prestigious CDAM Trial Lawyers College where she learned trial techniques that are practiced by the nation's best trial lawyers. Even when the odds aren't in her favor, Keeley is never afraid to take a case to trial. In my opinion, Keeley's reputation in the community as a skilled trial attorney lead to better resolutions for her clients because prosecutors realize that she isn't afraid to try the case in front of a jury.
