  • John S. Schiro

    I recently had the pleasure of working with Attorney Keller in a felony matter in Racine County Circuit Court. Attorney Keller and I had co-defendants and Attorney Keller’s work was outstanding. We were able to get the prosecutor to dismiss all charges prior to trial. Bob’s attention to detail and his commitment to his client were of great assistance to both his and my client. I recommend him highly. I endorse this lawyer.
