I am so pleased with the services of Attorney Keil that I would highly recommend him to others. He is very professional, yet personable. His attention to his client and their issues is exceptional and always positive and keeps his client well informed of progress. When the unexpected occurs, he's there to handle it and truly has his client's best interest in mind. Attorney Keil has met and exceeded my expectations in this matter and I would select him again in a heartbeat. My choice to use his services was based on other lawyers opinions of him and they were all high and the attorney's ratings were accurate. You will not be disappointed if you choose Mr. Keil to represent you.

I chose Mr. Keil to represent me based on his high ratings received from other lawyers. He did not disappoint me. The case is ended and I am extremely satisfied with the results. Mr. Keil is professional yet personable. He reviewed my documents, created a plan, executed the plan, submitted paperwork on my behalf to receive benefits, and was tolerant in his dealings with an unresponsive attorney. His office staff was helpful and polite. Mr. Keil, thank you for all the hard work and effort on my behalf. If you choose Mr. Keil, you will not be disappointed, he will do all he can to see that you receive favorable results.

I went to Mr.Kiel with a specific mission. When I explained how I wanted to approach the issues he was supportive and responsive. At no time did he pressure me or give me advice against my original request. When the time came to change our approach he supported that decision and advised me accordingly. I would highly recommend his services.
As a side note, Mr. Kiel's office staffers are kind and smart and motivated. I've had numerous encounters with Ashley. She handles my calls professionally, efficiently and effectively, with kindness in her voice.
