About Me

     I attempt to obtain results which exceed expectations for every client.  I approach each case with an eye towards resolution, but I am always prepared to litigate if necessary.  I have been involved in many high conflict custody cases and have dealt with many complex financial issues during my 27 years as a lawyer.  I am very aggressive in pursuing and protecting my client's rights.

    I highly recommend James J. Keil, Jr. as a family law attorney. He is a lawyer of the highest integrity. He has a strong work ethic, great legal acumen and significant trial skills. He is a reasonable and fair lawyer who will make every effort to settle a case. I have litigated cases with him as opposing counsel, had the opportunity to co-counsel cases with him on occasion and serve as a mediator for him and his clients on several occasions. In each instance, I have observed his considerable legal skills. I endorse JIm to anyone seeking a high caliber divorce lawyer.
