Excellent lawyers.
I found Keith on google search for a consultation and he picked up the phone himself, not a clerk, listened to my story, and referred me to his associate, Nikki Price right away. She was amazing with excellent communication, negotiation skill, and handled my case very well. I'm very thankful to find them. They are amazing lawyers that wil truly listens and cares for their client.

workers comp case.
Mr Alley has been incredible in helping my husband thru a very complicated workers comp claim and settlement. His knowledge of the laws and what the client is entitled to makes him the perfect selection for these type of cases. He was always very prompt and transparent on what was required and expected. If his services are ever required again for any type of law he practices, we would not hesitate to contact him immediately.

An excellent strategic partner for contractors, developers and property owners.
There are (3) angles to an effort: Cheap, Good or Fast. In construction we say pick 2 of the 3 In legal work, it seems we only get to choose 1 of the 3. I had a messy contract dispute that Keith unravelled and prevailed. Keith delivered great work and was certainly cost effective in the end. Mr. Alley is an arrow in my quiver and I have increased business confidence knowing that.

Classy Lawyer
If only more lawyers were like Keith. Mr. Alley was a great help in sorting our our failed real estate options. He is realistic, kind, honest, and legally spot on. I got way more than I paid for. Thanks Keith

Highly recommend
In our case, Mr. Alley helped us resolve an issue regarding a former tenant who left an office space with abandoned equipment, damaged surfaces, etc. He conducted himself in a friendly and highly professional manner at all times. His command of his profession and high competency came through immediately in consultation and was evident in his correspondence. His humanity shows. He is tough when it's warranted, yet is able to understand the value in compromise in order to minimize losses. We are grateful for his thorough approach and are happy with the outcome he got for us.

Excellent service, excellent attorney!
Keith Alley resolved our construction issue with one letter. He listened to our problem and the letter to our builder reflected our issues and complaints exactly. He took charge of our problem right away and drove our issue to a resolution we could accept. Keith is professional, great communication and an excellent attorney. A+ for Keith! Highly recommend!
