Sadly, I was pulled over one Saturday night for a DUI and did not have the good sense to refuse the roadside tests. I spent the night in jail (1st time ever at age 66!) wondering how in the world I had gotten into this mess. Initially I thought "you got into this mess, you get yourself out," but the advice of two friends eventually convinced me that if I did not retain legal counsel, the legal system would lower boon, and even if I avoided jail time, I would lose my license for an extended period. Thankfully, I contacted Robert F. Keefer. His expertise and experience in navigating the legal shoals and mastering scientific evidence in DUI cases resulted in a reduction of charges from DUI to reckless driving, and he did so with dispatch. Perhaps some foklks would not be quite as worried about an impending DUI conviction as I was, but having the matter resolved was certainly a great relief to me!

Mr. Keefer is an Awesome lawyer who will go above and beyond the call of duty for his clients.If it was not for Mr. Keefer and his staff I would have lost everything I worked for in my military career. He fought hard in my case and won. The best, A-1. Thanks again to Mr.Keefer and his friendly staff.

I was absolutely blown away with the knowledge level and representation that Robert F Keefer provided in my recent DUI trial. I had interviewed other attorneys that had told me, "I would be doing good to get my BAC lessoned," however Mr. Keefer never doubted the situation. He pursued the case to the best of his ability and actually explored every possible defense in the case. The outcome speaks for itself. I came from a .16 BAC to a Reckless Driving, with the potential consequences shortened beyond belief. I would whole-heartedly reccomend Robert Keefer.

Mr. Keefer represented me in a Harrisonburg, VA DUI case. Mr. Keefer is very knowledgeable about all aspects of DUI cases, including police procedures, testing equipment, evidence analysis, and charges/penalties. He is also trained and certified in standardized field sobriety testing, and has a firm understanding of its limits under the law. Furthermore, Mr. Keefer has a vast amount of experience working specifically with the Harrisonburg/Rockingham County courts and is familiar with their conventions and tendencies. The entire team at Keefer Law Firm is professional and courteous. Mr. Keefer obviously has a passion for his work, and it shows through the energy and attention to detail he exhibits with each case.

Had a accident going north on I-81 and was cited for reckless driving.Read up on what that meant in Va and decided to get a lawyer.Bob keefer has some real good videos out so you can understand what could possibly happen if convicted. Never had to deal with a attorney before this. Did every thing that was asked of me and he went to bat for me and was successful in getting reduced to improper driving.Highly reccomend Bob Keefer

Bob helped out our son who received a reckless driving charge in Shenandoah county. We found out that this is more than just a traffic ticket. The charges were more serious. Bob knows the people in the system (police, judges, etc...) and that was to our son's benefit. He used his relationship and knowledge of the system to negotiate the charge to a traffic ticket. He did a wonderful job.
I must mention here that his staff was courteous, patient and helpful. All of our questions were answered. Thank you Bob

"Bob" Keefer is nationally known as the "go to" criminal defense and DUI lawyer in Virginia. He has been the pioneer and champion of DUI defense in Virginia and is relied upon for his insight by attorneys nationwide. If I ever had a friend or family member accused of a DUI or other criminal charge in Virginia, my first and last recommendation would be Bob Keefer without reservation.
