Chris is the best Criminal Defence lawyer I have ever met. Before I hired him, I had another lawyer who was not so good and I have spoken to few others who were untrustworthy. In my opinion most lawyers over promise and under deliver because they want hype themselves up in order to charge you a lot of money. Then they turn around and pressure you to negotiate your innocence with the prosecutor because they are either afraid of losing or they were lying to you in the first place because they are not a trial lawyer. I had a lawyer tell me that she would charge $3000 if I want to go to trial or $2000 to negotiate my case. Really? Negotiate? If I wanted to negotiate, why not do it myself?
I am sure you're reading my post because you are looking for an honest, trustworthy, and capable lawyer for a bargain. If that is the case, look no further. I can honestly say this guy is the real deal. He is like Mohamed Ali in the courtroom without boasting about it and most prosecutors have no chance in convicting you if he is in you corner. He will not promise you that you will win your case if you hire him, because no one can predict the outcome of a case in the US legal system, but he will will do exactly what you hire him for without pressuring you to take any deals. I was offered to pay $300 and my case would be dismissed in a year if I didn't commit any crime before the trial started and I turn it down because I am one of those idiots who believes in justice at all cost. I would not suggest you gamble like I did because innocent men and women are constantly found guilty in the US legal system. Lucky for me, both of the charges (disorderly conduct and resisting arrest) were found to be bogus by the jury. I believed I was innocent and the jury agreed with me and I could not have done it without the help of Christopher Wesley Keyser. If you are feeling angry I like did when I was assaulted by a bully with a badge and his security guard friends, then taken to jail and charged with a crime; I suggest you take deep breath, calm yourself down and call Chris. The road to "Not Guilty" will be a lot easier when Chris is in your corner. Trust me. You don't believe me? Go to Chris' website and see the smiling black/Somali guy holding two not "Not Guilty" verdict forms as the proof.
Thank you Mr Keyser. To Mrs Keyser, thank you for allowing him to work on my case and prepare me for trial late into the night.
When this first happened I was not only terrified but also super embarrassed and had not even the slightest idea of what to do. Chris kept me well informed from the very beginning and gave great suggestions on what to do prior to court and was always there whenever I had a question. I had complete trust in Chris and would highly recommend him to anyone! Chris turned this horrible experience into the best outcome we could have hoped for and I can't thank him enough!
After doing a great deal of research, I hired Chris for my domestic violence case. He did an excellent job with my case.Everything he told me in our preliminary meeting came to be as he stated. He was very honest throughout the legal process and always informed me of what the next possible steps could be. This allowed me to prepare myself and take the best steps to move forward. He fought and he continued to fight until he got what I wanted-my case dismissed. Without any hesitation, I absolutely recommend him.
We had a legal issue this past May and I contacted a lot of lawyers I liked his web page! When we hired Chris is new his stuff and quick knowledgeable down to earth kept us in the loop i like that very cool! Chris kicked but in court I hope me or my husband ever need a lawyer but if we do I would hired Chris again!!! the amount of money was a lot but it was worth it!! Thanks Chris
You will NOT be disappointed with Chris!
With copious amounts of anxiety after getting a disorderly conduct charge, Chris calmly explained the options available to me and the likelihood of each outcome. Even though there was no guarantee on a positive result, Chris was able to get the charge downgraded to unnecessary noise with a stipulation of a year’s probation and only a day of community service through participation in a restorative justice program. He even negotiated the continuance for dismissal deal on the first court date. Chris was readily available for communication and answered all of my questions via email, although he did invite me into the office if I would’ve preferred. If needed, I would hire Chris again without hesitation.
Chris is the BEST lawyer ever! I hired him for my domestic violence case which had 3 charges. He was very helpful and knowledgeable and kept me in the loop throughout the whole process so I know what's going. He was well prepared for trial and his performance was outstanding! I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't hired Chris as my lawyer through this difficult time. He was able to set realistic expectations and was prepared for any outcomes (either bad or good). With his professional expertise and dedication to this case, we won the trial on all 3 counts. Overall, he's an amazing person to work with, and I will definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a good lawyer.
First let me say I did something real Stupid and decided out of the blue that it would be a good idea to walk out of a store without paying for my good's. And as you can guess I got caught. After the shock wore off the panic set in. I started researching all I could on line and found that it would be in my best interest to hire a lawyer. After talking to a number of lawyers (On a Holliday) a couple of then put on the real scare tactics. One even went as far as to tell me that without them I was going to jail for this misdemeanor. Then finally I found Chris and talked to him on this same Holiday. He put my mind at ease and let me know that some lawyers out there like to use these types of tactics to get clients. Chris never made any guarantees but laid out how things would more than likely go. Chris is a very easy person to talk to and never once did I feel that he judged me for my Screw up.
We went to court last week and Chris was professional and we got the best possible outcome in this case. I doubt that I could have gotten the same without him in my corner.
I would recommend his services if you should find yourself in need of a good lawyer.
I had reached out to a few Attorneys when trying to decide who I wanted to hire to represent me in my criminal case (one was even a referral from a friend). I believe it was Chris' knowledge and general care about the outcome of the case which is why I hired Chris. I was originally charged with 5th Degree Assault, the State added, Destruction of Property and Disorderly Conduct. During the process, Chris kept me well informed on what was going on. We were offered two separate settlements from the state, after discussing each option with Chris, we decided to proceed to trial. During trial, Chris showed a great deal of experience, knowledge, and preparation which ultimately lead to 3 not guilty verdicts. I would HIGHLY recommend Chris to anyone that is looking for an experienced attorney that has your best interest in mind. He's not looking to make a quick buck, he will do whatever he can to help clear you of your charges.
Christopher's knowledge and confidence eased my anxiety significantly!
Navigating the criminal and licensing issues that result from a DUI are a challenge to say the least. Add in the emotional repercussions and it becomes very difficult to know what the right decisions are. Christopher made very clear what my options were, where I didn't have options, and what I could expect the outcome to be.
I recommend him 100%!
Outstanding attorney. he kept me well informed and in the "loop" throughout my entire case. He is an amazing attorney and person in general. He knows how to explain the legal procedures and processes in a way anyone could understand. He is the first person I would go to if I ever needed an attorney again. Don't hesitate to hire him, you will be satisfied, I guarantee it.
