Posted by David, a Domestic Violence client,
I hired Ms. Keys to help with my domestic violence charge. She informed me of each step I needed to take to have the no contact order removed so that I could reunite with my family. When we were in court she was prepared and advised the court on the steps I had taken. She also resolved my case and it will be dismissed in a few months. Ms. Keys knew how important it was to address this no contact order as soon as possible since I was deploying to Afghanistan and my children have special needs which require both my wife and I to care for them.
The result did not affect my military career and I was able to reunite with my family before my deployment. She was responsive and very caring through the duration of my case. Do not hesitate to hire Ms. Keys if you are ever faced with a criminal charge.

I retained Laura K. Keys.
I was dissatisfied with her performance because:
1. She did not review the discovery documents with me before the court date.
2. On our court date she did not have a written statement that I provided for her to present in court.
3. She did not have appropriately annotated documents, illustrated by telling the judge that she had not highlighted or tabbed a report that was being referenced during the hearing.
4. The terms of the settlement that she relayed in her office were different from the finalized settlement terms that were read by the prosecutor. I was not aware of this until court was in session and the prosecutor was reading them to the judge.
I do not recommend Laura Keys.

A couple of months ago, I was arrested for a DUI, it was definitely a stressful situation. I was actually thinking about going through with everything on my own, I'm very glad I didn't. Laura's firm, Beckwith Law was actually the first firm I contacted based on the reviews and comments I read online. I was really nervous, because I was afraid to hear what they charged and any kind of legal terms they would throw at me, that I wouldn't understand. But Laura was very informative and understanding, I really felt like she was on my side, she made me feel very comfortable and assured me she would represent to the fullest. When it came to affording her services, she was very very flexible and allowed me to pay in installments which was also convenient. And because I had just started a new job, I didn't want to have to ask for days off to meet up with her. So I was pleasantly surprised that we were able to do the majority of our communicating through phone calls and e-mails. She kept me well informed of how my case was going and steps I needed to take to help get a positive outcome. In the end my DUI charge was dropped to Reckless Driving. In the state of Washington, with quite possibly the toughest laws on drunk drivers, this was the best result I could have received based on the evidence against me. Thanks again to Laura and her staff, for all they're hard work!

I hired Laura to represent me on my DUI case in November. She really made sure that I understood the charge against me and gave me a worst case/best case scenario. She kept me informed of what to expect in my case and always responded promptly to me when I had any questions. I ended up getting a reduction of my charge, avoided any license suspension, and avoided all jail time. I highly recommend hiring Laura!!!

My experience with Laura Keys was excellent. In my unique situation, we were very close to a dismissal. Laura was on the ball to achieve every avenue to get my case thrown out. Unfortunately for me, the prosecution was successful (which in no way was Laura's fault). The case was reduced to a very lesser charge due to her hard work and communication with the prosecutor. The judge for my case was well known to be very harsh with cases like mine. The judge was impressed with her presentation and was after all nice to my case. Laura was great at giving advise, showing she cared about my situation, and led me to the right path of taking care of things on my end. I will recommend Laura Keys to any one in need of representation of a case similar to mine.

Couldnt of picked a better lawyer. Not only were my charges reduced but also had two of them dismissed. Laura did a great job communicating with me as well as keeping me updated on what was going on, the whole time my case was going on i knew exactly what was happening and that is a huge stress reliever. Laura knew what she was doing and i am highly satisfied with the outcome.
