A++ Attorney
I was in a terrible situation when Keith came to my rescue and helped me win my case. He knows the law, has superior litigation skills, and helped me understand the legal process. He communicated with me throughout the case. I could have never handled my case alone and in fact, other attorneys said my case would be difficult to win, but he was confident and prepared and won my case. For the first time in a long while, I can relax knowing justice was served.

Keith is an excellent lawyer
Keith has a lot of experience, is a hard worker, understands the big picture, is able to simplify complex ideas into simple words and has repeatedly gotten outstanding results for his clients. He’s also a great person. I strongly recommend him.

Ethical and Uninfluenced
Has been several years since I first consulted Keith for a particular (and peculiar) situation. Because of a nondisclosure agreement I can't go into details. Keith was practically the only attorney in Knoxville who would handle my case because of the oddity of the situation and settled at 100% to my satisfaction. I would recommended Keith in a second.

Keith Stewart
Keith is the person to hire, for Knox County Traffic defense. Keith answers his phone calls, follows-up with e-mail, takes the time to discuss the case, then handles it. His follow-up protocol and patience is exceptional.

Letter of recommendation, Keith Stewart
It is a privilege to recommend Keith Stewart, an excellent lawyer. Keith has superior research skills, which have benefitted Breezy Media LLC immensely, as well as excellent analytical skills. He is able to process large volumes of information quickly and formulate an effective strategy for each case (situation) we have given him. Keith is very personable and easily gains the trust of our business partners and clients with whom he works. Keith’s exceptional writing skills have served him while working with Breezy Media LLC. He is one of the best legal writers we have worked with and he has produced many well-researched and compelling letters, briefs, motions and arguments. Additionally, Keith is a gifted public speaker. He has not only represented Breezy Media LLC in court with skill and professionalism, but has represented us at speaking engagements ranging from our local Chamber of Commerce to presentations to North America’s largest media and distribution corporations. I am pleased to recommend Keith Stewart. I believe his work would, not only meet, but, exceed your expectations. Breezy

Keith gets it done
Outstanding lawyer. He was polite and understanding from the beginning. He is very knowledgeable and will work for you for the best possible outcome. I will definitely use him again.

Keith has been my attorney for 18 years but more important is in those 18 years he has been my friend. I was Keith's second client and probably 75 percent of his clients now I have recommended to Keith. Keith is the best attorney I've ever seen and I wouldn't even think of using someone else. I have been asked by at least 5 high profile attorneys to let them represent me always making the deal sweeter than what Keith gives me. I have been in ALOT OF TROUBLE over the years and if there is one thing I have always lived by and that is ' NEVER WALK INTO COURT WITHOUT GOOD LEGAL REPRESENTATION AND THERE IS NO ONE BETTER THAN KEITH STEWART.

| Consulted Attorney
Absolutely Unprofessional
Originally had a consult scheduled that had to be rescheduled to work around a doctor apt for my wife's heart condition. This typically wouldn't be a big deal but I was met with a short/hateful behavior from his assistant. The consultation was rescheduled for a couple days after the deadline for a time sensitive matter that had a deadline of 6/25. I called his assistant about the matter and she instructed me to email him, I sent an email on 6/23, 6/24, and the 6/26 with no response. I contacted the office that referred him to me (who also emailed him) and they told me that they received a reply from him stating that he called me and settled the matter (he did not call me). Finally after leaving another voice mail on 6/26 I received a call back. When he called back I was asked in an extremely rude manor "what do I owe you", "I don't have to reply", and "I received you emails, what do you want" just to name a few. If he received my emails but didn't want to answer all he had to do was say so and I would have taken my business elsewhere. I would not recommend this attorney unless you like the person WORKING FOR YOU to talk down to you, ignore you, and treat you like you're beneath them.
