Need more lawyers like Ryan!!
I know Ryan from growing up in the same community. Ryan fights for the results you as the client want and he will work very hard to get the desired results. He is a very approachable and honest guy. I hired Ryan for a Criminal case that seemed complicated to me but Ryan stepped in took over and made it a very simple open and shut case. He followed through with the case from start to finish.

Couldn't of asked for a better lawyer!
I hired Mr. Keif to represent me in a landlord tenant case against a very nasty landlord. Mr. Keif was diligent and very determined to get me results, and he did just that. I would highly recommend him for representation. He is awesome!!

Need more lawyers like Mr. Kief!
My boyfriend and I were looking for lawyers in Worcester County about a warrant my bf received in the mail. There was no information about what the warrant was about. We had an idea though. We also live in Montgomery County. We called and spoke with Mr. Kief and explained the situation. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. We spent about 40 minutes on the phone even after we decided we didn't need to hire him for the warrant. He even offered to call the detective listed on the warrant in Montgomery County and he did! He called us right back and informed us of what was going on and even offered to call the detective again after my bf gets out after turning himself in to let him know its taken care of. He took his time explaining things and was extremely helpful when he didn't have to do any of it. We didn't need to hire him for the warrant but we will hire him for the case in Worcester County if we need to. We hung up with Mr. Kief knowing much more than we did before we called and felt a whole lot better. Thank you Mr. Kief for being so helpful and going out of your way when you didn't have to, we are very thankful!

I contacted Mr. Kief for consultatIon regarding a breach of contract case. Mr. Kief was quick to organize background research and presented to me a sound and detailed proposal to pursue this case. I greatly appreciated his intelligent, caring services and would certainly contact Mr. Kief again in the future for legal services.
