I personally handle all of the offices indictable (felony) matters that arise out of Monmouth and Mercer County. Some of the more common cases I handle are aggravated assault, armed robbery, burglary, drug distribution, drug possession, driving while intoxicated, shoplifting, eluding and carjacking.

Where can I begin Keith Oliver when I first got in trouble I reached out to a few offices he was the first one to call me back in my time of immediate need. Keith was patient listen to my problems my concerns and addressed every single one of them anytime I needed him never got a busy signal every call was directly to him never to a paralegal or receptionist he handled my case as if I was one of his own family membersthere's a lot of great things I could tell you about Keith I just don't think there's enough room to say it in just a review but if you're ever in trouble I would not hesitate for one second to call his office and speak to him. Thank you Keith sincerely Chris corella

A True Professional
Keith is highly skilled as an attorney and he is absolutely the person who you want on your side when facing charges. I hired Keith to represent me in a complex case and he dug in 100% and delivered expertly. Keith’s analytical approach enabled him to fully understand my case’s unique set of facts and circumstances. He was able to navigate the entire process like a seasoned professional. I would recommend Keith to anyone who is seeking peace of mind with top-level legal counsel.

"The Force is Strong with this One"
I was wrongly being accused of fraud and anguishing over the consequences. A family member referred me to Keith. Once involved my accusor and all accusations have since been extinguished. I'm so grateful and relieved! He knows the law and has empathy for his client. I highly recommend Keith Oliver!

Keith Oliver = GOLD
From the moment that Mr. Oliver interrupted my frantic online search...for a NJ Attorney....to he argued my sons in person appearance with him...and successfully got him “time served” as his sentence....Keith stood by my side. My case...was a bit “different” because my son and I...are not NJ residents!! Briefly...our case was a little different!! As I surfed the web...as any mother would to defend her child.....Mr. Oliver intervened...while I was online checking out his reviews...and he was “talking that talk!!” Never made me any promises....in our live chat... but based on his energy...I felt connected!! Early the next morning (we connected via chat well after midnight)....he called me directly....and the rest...is history!! This is the 1st review...that I’ve ever written...but I feel compelled to advise...even when its a difficult situation...OLIVER GOT YOU!! Please excuse any typos in this review...or if I’ve used the wrong tense of a word!! I’m enjoying my son’s freedom...and he advised me to also include in this review...that while in custody...in court...he was questioned as to his Attorney’s name. As opposed to saying his name....he referred to Mr. Oliver....as.... “THE BEST DRESSED ATTORNEY IN THE COURT ROOM!!” Immediately.... they KNEW...who his attorney was!! Still trying to keep this brief......Attorney Oliver brought both professionalism and knowledge (with SWAG) coupled with intelligence of laws...to his case!! Through it all...I’m still able to celebrate....with GIFTS...the up coming Holiday Season...with my Son!! Always communicated with me (even though I was out of town) I honestly feel like...Keith Oliver....was sent to me....#SpecialDelivery!!

Excellent attorney
From the moment I spoke to Keith on the telephone until the moment our case was finally decided, I had complete confidence that Keith would do the best he possibly could for our matter. I was impressed by the fact that Keith returned phone calls very quickly, would communicate by text and by email and was never rushed in answering the most silly question we had regarding our matter. In the end or matter was decided very favorably, as Keith had predicted, but he kept us prepared for a less favorable outcome, yet he was always optimistic and confident. I would definitely recommend Keith to anyone who has any legal trouble. Above all he’s a very nice person and cares for his clients and does not see them as just another dollar sign.

I chose wisely thank God when I hired Keith . He was always available to answer my neurotic questions and put me at ease . I knew that Keith would fight hard to protect me ,my family and my career . This man has a unbelievable work ethic covering all bases. Honestly couldn’t have gone through such a traumatic experience without him. Keith is not only a great lawyer he is a truly wonderful human being.

The lawyer you want.
In all honesty, I can tell you I was hesitant about hiring a lawyer at all. Keith was detailed and professional. He kept me updated and dealt with my issues as quickly as he could. I couldn't have expected anything more.

Absolutely Excellent!!
I was the plaintiff in a domestic violence/restraining order case. Keith spent many hours preparing and much time talking to me to understand my case. He was Extremely knowledgeable, and I believe his experience as a criminal defense attorney helped him represent me on the other side. He made me feel safe and protected. He believed in my case. And I know that I would not have my final restraining order if I didn’t have him by side. I highly recommend him and will definitely consult with him in the future if needed.

Gives you the time for your case--Excellent
Keith wasn't the cheapest available option, but he was well worth he money. He returns calls at all all hours and actually cares. I'm a pessimistic kind of guy, but he made me a believer. Keith will listen but be blunt. Excellent overall.

Attorney you need!
Keith took interest in understanding my case and provided me individualized attention. He showed care and was always available whenever I called him. Keith was well prepared and made sure the case ends in my way. His legal skills are topnotch and goes without saying. It's his ability to connect with you makes him the attorney you want to hire. Lastly he did not bring money in the mix every time I talk to him.

Keith Oliver - Magician /Attorney at Law
Mr. Keith Oliver doesn't pull rabbits from a hat, but he pulled me from my 2018 New Year troubles. Many reviewers use word "magic, magician". What other words I can use when my case ended the most optimistic way?! Charges has been dismissed even before my appearance in Court! Stay away from troubles, but when staff happens Keith is the best remedy. Highest recommendation. Thanks Keith.

Pretty sure he's a magician
Keith is truly a magican, and a great person who cares about you. He was able to get my marijuana possesion charges dropped right away at court despite the low odds of that happening. I was facing a marijuana possession charge , a driving in the left lane too long charge, and obstructed view charge by an air freshener. I was facing up to 6 months In jail(according to new jersey law) I contacted him the day after it happened and he was able to calm me and my mom down (who was severely freaking out) He truly goes above and beyond with his services. The difference between him and most lawyers is that he genually cares about you, and actually loves what he does. When I went to court, he was able to talk to the prosecuter to take my side. (You know the prosecuter, the guy who is supposed to put you in jail who represents the state.) As if it were magic, he talks to me and told me the charges are dismissed, and that they will be expunged off of my record. If I didn't hire him, I would still be facing these charges which would cost double of what I payed for . Truly the best lawyer I have ever met. Thank you so much Keith!
