  • Peter Blake Allen

    Keith is bright, extremely knowledgeable and effective. He really does live and breathe education law and it shows in the results of his work. His clients are happy not just because of his keen understanding of education law, but because he understands the interplay between education law and the realities of the education business. Keith helps clients map out where they want to be, and then he gets them there.
