Keith Evra is a personal injury and criminal defense attorney in Atlanta, Georgia. He specializes in civil litigation.
Keith was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He attended the University of Georgia where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice. After college, Keith returned home and continued his education at Georgia State University College of Law where he obtained his J.D. During school in both Athens and Atlanta, he gained valuable experience with several prestigious internships, including the Athens-Clarke County Public Defender Office; Office of the Georgia Capital Defender and DeKalb County Public Defender Office.
Once he became a member of the State Bar of Georgia, Keith devoted his first five years of practice at a boutique firm representing clients often charged with very serious offenses. Some of those cases eventually evolved into major civil cases recovering large settlements on behalf of those who were innocently accused of crimes they did not commit. With this same passion, Keith then joined a small personal injury firm in order to continue that battle exclusively by recovering damages on behalf of those that are wronged by others. At that practice, he learned all aspects of personal injury litigation.
Keith currently operates his practice individually. He is trained in criminal and personal injury litigation. Keith has experience in entertainment law, such as drafting and reviewing contracts. He has proudly represented veterans, doctors, best-selling authors, students, police officers, and judges in many aspects of the law.
He is a member of the American Association for Justice, Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and admitted to practice in all State of Georgia trial courts, the Georgia Court of Appeals, Georgia Supreme Court, and the Middle and Northern District of Georgia Federal courts.
