Matthew Keenan was highly recommended so my fiance and I hired him for a criminal defense attorney in Skokie, Illinois. Matthew showed great concern about the charges and had a positive outlook over the whole case. Matthew never seemed unsure or nervous about winning the case for us. His intelligent analogies and friendly personality gave us a peace of mind from the time we hired him until the very end. We'd definitely hire again and/or recommend Matt Keenan to anyone that is in need of a defense attorney.
Paid $200 for consultation. He gave me some good advice. Was sympathetic and upfront about my situation. Seemed sincere and would hire again.
Matt Keenan took my case the next day, in August, 2014 after I was arrested for a DUI---the first arrest in my life. Some "concerned citizen" in Winnetka, reported that I was driving "erratically." He was rich and powerful. He had a multi-million dollar mansion with steps leading down to the beach.
Matt and his wife, also highly recommended for Wills, Trusts, etc. watched the video of my arrest several times and were shocked that I was arrested and maltreated. They agreed I was a little snippety with the officer, but perfectly sober.
Matt and I appeared in Skokie Court eleven, yes 11 times between October and last July! Why? Because the other individual was so powerful, and the officer was so determined that they persisted.
But so did Matt. After the 10th time, Matt put his foot down (cliché) and demanded a Trial by Jury. It scared the Prosecution so much, that they wisely did not show up for the 11th court date, and I was declared "innocent without prejudice."
My case will be expunged in November.
By that time my retainer was gone, but Matt never said a word about it, never asked me for more money. Instead, he was kind, warm, supportive, and deeply empathetic,
He gave me a new comb (!), when I forgot mine, he bought me coffee at the Courthouse. His capability, his probity, and kindness are unique in my experience.
I recommend him highly without reservations.

I retained Mr. Matt Keenan for a case in 2013. It was a misfortune that I had once again fallen into yet another DUI. Life was tough due to my actions and the only light at the end of the tunnel was Mr. Keenan. After many court dates and sleepless nights, Mr. Keenan was able to get me a plea bargain which would unknowingly turn my life around for the better within the following months. Mr. Keenan had a wonderful outlook and was always compassionate. These are traits I will never forget and now use in my daily life. Long story short, I find Mr. Keenan to be an exceptional attorney in his field and highly recommend him to anyone looking for legal support. Thanks for everything Matt!

Attorney Matt Keenan was the lead attorney in my criminal defense. I had my career and family life at risk as a result of the criminal charge and he put me in touch with a therapist so I can handle the mental stress while Matt and my other attorney handled the legal side. He also sent me constant reminders telling me not to get in touch with the complainant as that can be damaging to our case. He skillfully strategized and was able to get me the best settlement possible. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone who needs a great attorney who will fight for you.

Matt Keenan is a fantastic lawyer. He worked with me 2 1/2 years ago with a DUI that I thought would virtually be unbeatable. I was proved wrong. He fought with me for an entire year and never gave up. He gave me a second chance at a normal life, being only 19 years old I didn't want this incident to slow me down. Matt continues to be very helpful to me in everything I do. I don't know what I would him and am truly grateful I have my life back.

Matt got me probation on a 3rd DWI and beat the fourth, knocked out two sumery suspentions. On my 7th conviction for possession narcotic's I didn't do any time in the pen ,I was on probation for my 6th conviction of Herion - did just under 3 months county time for V.O.P Matt had my probation reinstated. All at a very fair price, I might add. He is a good laywer and a nice guy. He worked well on my behalf, spent alot of time in court. Most importantly keept me out of prison. He does what he says he will do and does a darn good job of doing it. I have been clean and out of the court systems for almost 3 years - So yes, he is a good lawyer.

Matt Keenan is an extraordinary lawyer. He deals with his clients in a professional manner, and to the highest integrity. He is quite knowledgeable in his field and will share it all with you. Most importantly he deals with his cases very patiently and with a sense of wisdom not found in many lawyers today. I have dealt with many lawyers and i can say Matt is unique and one of a kind. I would have been charged with a class A misdemeanor but he managed to get the case dropped!! I strongly recommended hiring him as your attorney for your case.
