I have been practicing law since 2004, and take pride in making sure my clients are not only well represented, but also well informed of what actions I am taking on their behalf.  Over the years, I've developed a specialty in automobile accidents, and also with speeding and other traffic citations, misdemeanor and felony criminal defense.  I can assist clients with probate matters, and I have represented and continue to represent businesses, cities and counties in liability matters.  I sit as a municipal court judge on a part time basis.  I enjoy presiding over court, and utilizing the knowledge I've gained over the last several years on the bench.  I am certified as both a mediator and arbitrator, and enjoy the ability to help people resolve their disputes.  I am unapologetically a Christian.  That does not mean I am perfect, but means that I believe that one should treat others the way he or she wants to be treated.

Very Pleased
I hired J. Keith Pollette to look into a SuperSpeeder ticket (the ticket that adds $200) I got on I-95 in McIntosh GA. 85 in 70 reduced to minimum infraction 1-5mph over. Overall very pleased, Christy was very friendly and informative throughout the process. My fees without representation would've been $180 for ticket and $200 for super speeder so $380 total. With Representation I paid $550 which is high but really I think of it like paying an extra $170 to make the ticket not raise my insurance rates, which to me was worth it. They also let me split my payments. P.S. Get your website up and running, I questioned the legitimacy when it was down, thankfully Christy allayed my doubts. Overall very satisfied.

speeding
My son was caught speeding in GA in Jan 2012 doing 97mph in a 70mph zone and Keith and his firm got it reduced to 87mph, no points on his FL license and no court visit. All court fees and fines were paid, happy times!! Jump ahead to 2017 when my son moved to CA, took the CA DMV driving test, passed and obtained his license a few days later, result! Then the state of CA notified my son 3 weeks later saying that because his driving license privileges had been suspended in GA he had 30 days to get clearance from the Georgia DMV. He received the letter 3 weeks after passing his CA driving test, meaning he only had 4 working days to respond. After many exhausting hours onto the GA, FL and CA DMW's( who by the way said everything was OK, go figure) it was sorted. Its amazing how this things can come up and bite you at the worst possible time!! I hope we don't have to deal with these inefficient government departments again! A huge thank you to J. Keith and his team.

I-95 Speed trap ticket!
Around Oct 2016 I was caught in that speed trap in McIntosh County GA, seeing as the fine was only $212 dollars I just went ahead and paid it and forgot about it. Then the state of NC notified me that because of the ticket in GA they would be suspending my lisence for 30 days. Thanks to J. Keith he was able to have the ticket reopened and amended down to 64 in a 60 and have it quickly sent to the North Carolina DMV which made the suspension completely go away, all within 24 hours of me hiring him. I just wish that I had contacted him sooner to avoid the headache of dealing with NC DMV. J. Keith and his staff were very professional, helpful and went above and beyond to assure that I was taken care of every step of the way.

Great experience!
Fantastic experience with Kieth. First, he extended my court date on an outstanding ticket, and then he actually got the entire ticket thrown out! No fine. No penalty. Excellent attorney. Would HIGHLY recommend.

Denise Collins' review of J. Keith Pollette
Mr. Pollette handled my divorce case with the utmost dignity and professionalism. He was careful to research and thoroughly review all information pertaining to my case. He kept me informed and up to date on all aspects of my case. He attended all court proceedings and conducted himself in a very professional manner even under some very difficult circumstances. His meekness should not be mistaken for weakness. He is a very capable attorney who was able to handle any situation he was faced with. I respect his opinions and recommendations and he never led me wrong. He has advised me on other issues and I have been very pleased with the results received. I would most definitely retain his services again because he is a man of high moral standards and strives to do the best he can for his clients.

Child Support / Child Custody Review
Mr. Pollette is an outstanding attorney who has worked very hard and deligently on my case. I have known Mr. Pollette for many years as a classmate and as a positive citizen in our community. Mr. Pollette was the second attorney that has worked on my case and he has done everything we set out to do and more. He has really been a blessing to me as he has reunited me and my son. I feel good knowing that there is a honest attorney here in Soperton Ga. Mr. Pollette started my cases over a year ago and he has yet to fail on being trustworthy, keeping me informed on my cases and he has yet to go back on his word. I have the up most respect for him as an attorney and I will continue to recommend him to my friends and collegues. If I had to describe Mr. Pollette in one word I would say PROFESSIONAL. At the end of the day I chose Mr. Pollette because he was honest. And If I ever need an Attorney for any other reason Mr. Pollette is my choice.

Creation of Will
I approached the law office of Mr. J. Keith Pollette in regards to drafting a will. His office staff was prompt in scheduling an appointment at the earliest convenience, at which time I met with Mr. J. Keith Pollette. I had many concerns about drafting a will, with respect to my family, assets, and properties, etc., and Mr. J. Keith Pollette was thorough in explaining what needed to be done to protect my family and property in the event something were to happen to me. I left his consultation feeling very confident in the action we had taken, and have full confidence in Mr. J. Keith Pollette in any future legal matters.

State Trooper on Me Like White on Rice While Driving from Atlanta to Columbus
I live in California and had to be in Columbus, GA, due to the death of my mother-in-law. I picked up my car on June 30, 2012 - at the Atlanta Airport, upon my arrival and proceeded to drive to Columbus - it was approximately 8 P.M. and an hour into a two hour trip, I was moving with the traffic and a state trooper came up behind me, stopped me and gave me a ticket for speeding - 90 in a 70. I really did not think I was driving that fast, but the trooper was not interested in even having a conversation with me about it. I am convinced I got the ticket because my Hertz car had Tennessee plates and he figured I would NOT contest the ticket because I was out of state. Needless to say, after talking to a few folks, they suggested I talk to an attorney. I went on line and chatted with a ticket advocate who suggested a couple of attorney's and I picked Keith Pollette. Stefany Hodges, from Keith's office was assigned to me and she was great and very helpful. I am very happy I chose to contact the office and settle this as it would cost me major headaches with the DMV here in California adding points to my driving record and the extra State of Georgia "Super Speeder" fee of $200 that would have been added to what I would have to pay for my ticket. I was able to take care of my ticket from my home in Southern California with the help of the office and I must add, it was well worth the fee. Thank you again - Stefany (you're a real Georgia Peach, by the way) and the office of J. Keith Pollette.

Wrong info and didn't call back
When I called here I asked specific questions about procedure and was told that it was unavoidable that I would have to appear in court and/or sit some jail time. They gave me an exorbitant fee quote and then did not return my call the next day to clarify some issues. I called a DIFFERENT attorney's office and that assistant asked me where I got that info that I would have to come in and do jail time. She said that's what you hire an attorney for - so you don't have to appear in court or do jail time. She said the info given to me by THIS law firm was just plain WRONG. The other firm's fee was also HALF what they tried to charge me here. I decided to go with the other attorney. The info they give you here is wrong and they don't call you back.
