Posted by A. Richard
I was facing very serious felony and misdemeanor charges against me by an over aggressive county attorney. I was looking at financial ruin and having my life and reputation destroyed. Chuck took on my case. He was very thorough, constantly kept me in the loop as to what was transpiring and made me feel at complete ease. He knew the law like the back of his hand and fought tooth and nail for me. After filing a well documented motion, the charges against me were dismissed by the Court. I have my life back because of Chuck. If you are facing criminal charges in New Hampshire, you MUST hire Chuck Keefe. Do not screw around. He is THE LEADING criminal defense attorney in New Hampshire and will give nothing less than 150% effort on your matter!

I was arrested for a felony. I am a professional and a felony conviction would have ruined my life and my family. Attorney Keefe came highly recommended from several people I talked to and then I saw his reviews here. When I met with him he demonstrated his skill and professionalism. He put almost all of my fears to rest and we came up with a game plan to fight the case. He worked so much for me. I can't thank him enough. In the end we got rid of the felony and I saved my job and my life. I never thought I would need a criminal lawyer, but I'm so grateful I found him.

I was falsely accused of taking part in a major theft. I am retired and had never been arrested in my entire life. I was terrified. Mr. Keefe out me at ease the first time I met him. He explained the process to me, he listed to me and he began to form a plan of defense right away. Over the next 6 months he worked a lot to put together a large amount of material to use in my trial. He kept me informed and he made me feel like we were in control. He prepared the case for trial and I was actually looking forward to how we were going to prove my innocence. At the last hearing before the trial, Mr. Keefe got the prosecutor to dismiss the case. I was so thankful that he saved me from an injustice. I feel lucky I found him.

Being from MA I was accused of some serious crimes in NH (felony and misdemeanor) which threatened my job and reputation in the community I live in. I contacted two other attorneys which didn't leave me feeling positive about the possible outcomes. I read a few reviews on Chuck Keefe and figured I'd give him a call thinking he was going to be just like the other two. He called me back timely and conducted a phone interview. I immediately felt as if I had a chance of getting all charges dropped. I went with Chuck, he was in constant contact with me updating me on findings and date changes and if he wasn't available, his assistantist was just as helpful.
I had missed one of my court dates, which was my fault, Chuck smoothed everything out at the courts and even discussed a plea deaI. I would have to plead guilty to the misdemeanor but the felony would be dismissed. It was the best outcome so I took the deal. The day I appeared to finalize with courts Chuck had some discussions with the proper people and was able to get the misdemeanor charges dropped as well. The whole process was about seven months a little community service and good behavior for one year and it all goes away. All the lawyers I contacted were roughly the same fee so don't hesitate and waste your time, Chuck Keefe is your guy his reputation and relationships within the courts are stout.

I have had to use a lot of criminal defense lawyers during my life. I have never found one who really fought for me. From the moment I met Chuck I thought he was different. He showed me that in court. I was charged with a felony and looking at going to prison for something I didn't do. The cop had a personal grudge against me. At the probable cause hearing Chuck ate the cop alive. He embarrassed him so that people in the courtroom laughed at the cops absurd testimony. Chuck got the charge dismissed and saved my life. He fought more than any other attorney I have ever seen. He was worth every dime. Hire him if you need a criminal defense lawyer.

If you by happenstance find yourself in a situation like me that you never expected to find yourself in and require the services of one of the top criminal attorneys in New Hampshire, if not all of New England, one could do no better than to select Charles (Chuck) Keefe to represent you. In addition to having incredible persuasive powers and a sharp intellect, Chuck is also very personable, a genuinely nice, friendly guy. He will immediately make you feel at ease and if he decides to take on your case, you will feel confident that things are now under control. One reason Chuck is so well respected and feared in the court rooms around New Hampshire is because as a former prosecutor, he can think like the opposition and knows how strong or weak a case from a legal perspective the DA’s office may have. As a former prosecutor he’s also very well-known and still has strong relationships, not only with sitting Judges in the District and Superior courts of N.H. but also with various DA’s around the state. Chuck knows the weaknesses as well as the strengths in preparing for trial against many DA’s. When sitting Judges in the state hire Chuck to represent their own family members in need of legal assistance, you know he’s the kind of defense attorney you want on your side. The combination of Chuck’s sharp legal mind, his incredible persuasive powers combined with his likability, makes him a formidable opponent you want on your side in the court room if you’re facing trail or a serious charge.
You should of course interview multiple defense attorney’s before settling on a choice. In my experience, I ran into two basic types of defense attorney’s when I needed help on my felony charge. There are some attorney’s that will pressure you into immediately giving them a quick $5,000.00 as a retainer, but who will never tell you upfront that they have no real expectations of ever taking your case to trail (please deal only) and other’s like Chuck, that are honest and level with you, explaining that preparing for trail is sometimes a very costly process and could run into several thousand dollars before all is said and done. That being said, you don’t want cheap, you want the best and if you want the best, smart people choose Chuck. On the plus side, Chuck will most certainly if needed, work out an agreeable fee schedule with you over a period of several months, as he did with me, to retain his legal services.
Now if you’re facing a serious charge or a number of multiple charges as I was, you must also do yourself a big favor and help Chuck understand the details and nuances of your case that might not be readily apparent to him. Spend some serious time going over the discovery or evidence against you in detail, line by line, paragraph by paragraph. Do you own research on the discovery and provide Chuck with details he might otherwise overlook. I was facing a serious Class A felony charge and two Class A misdemeanor charges. Thanks to Chuck, the prosecutor dropped the felony charge, dismissed one of the misdemeanor charges and I was found innocent in a bench trial on the remaining misdemeanor charge.
Chuck is indispensable if you find yourself in a serious legal matter as I was. Please run, don’t walk to hire him as your criminal defense attorney.

I was going through a very tough divorce and my ex had various family members make false accusations against me and so did she. It was complicated and I was scared. Chuck was amazing right off the bat. He got my bail lowered, and he was always calling me back, and most importantly he beat all of the charges. There were a lot of charges and a few different cases. It was great to watch him make a police expert look silly in one of my cases. It is without hesitation I recommend him as a criminal lawyer. I owe him big time.

When my parents hired Mr. Keefe for my case I thought my life was over. I was facing four felony drug charges and had crashed my truck because I was high. He got me out on bail and into a great program. He understood what I was going through and he made sure to fight so my life wasn't ruined by my charges. He got the prosecutor to drop all the Charles except for one misdemeanor. I am now 10 months sober. And got a great job. I owe a lot of people for where I am now but I especially need to thank Mr. Keefe. I have dealt with other lawyers but nobody cared like him.

Charles defended me in a trial where I was facing really serious charges. I was scared about jail and my job and my family. He fought like crazy for me during my case. He was incredibly prepared for my case and could remember every detail from every statement. He showed how the witnesses were lying and he made the police witnesses for me. I am not in jail because of him. He saved everything for me. Great lawyer and great guy.

I violated my probation and they wanted to put me in jail for a year. I begged Mr. Keefe to do whatever he could to help. he worked so hard me. When we went to court he convinced the judge not to violate me or send me to jail. I owe him so much. I'm so glad he was my attorney. I don know where I would be without Mr. Keefe.
