Car accident attorney
I would highly recommend using Mr. O’Keefe. My case was a very complicated one that required an attorney with not only a strong knowledge base, but the conviction to keep fighting even when there was adversity or opposition. My case ended up being dragged out and the defendants insurance company fought us tooth and nail, but at the end of the day we won the full amount and I couldn’t have asked for more. I am extremely thankful for how hard this firm worked for me and would send any of my friends or family this way.

Highly Recommended
If you are looking for an attorney who pounds the table and promises you the world this is not that guy! Steve O’Keefe is tenacious, steadfast and constantly moves forward with a firm but cool temperament. Those same traits are the reason he reached a settlement on my behalf against other litigators who “never settle”. If you are looking for results, I HIGHLY recommend the O’Keefe law firm. Thanks Steve for a job well done

Steve O'Keefe Did a Fantastic Job!
Upon hiring Steve I wrote on the Contract - "Go Win". He did not know me, but from that moment on I felt like I was working with one of my good friends who just happened to be a fantastic lawyer. I won't get into the particulars of my case, but just know that whatever needed to be done, Steve did it. In a very difficult time of my family's life, Steve made us feel like his top priority and not just another case. Steve O'Keefe - Skiiled, Knowledgeable, Compassionate and Caring. Nice work Steve O'Keefe - you brought some comfort in a terrible situation. And by the way - We won.

Does Steven handle shoulder distocia cases
My almost 2 yr old was born with torticollis plageacephaly after I was rushed around and treated poorly I begged to be induced documenting all my experience she was measuring 38wks at 34 wks born severely bruised and crooked head and neck due to her weird amount of strength her pt has been postponed until October so that my BABY can take better instructions on neck stretches for her own safety and the therapist's comfortability im currently pregnant considered high risk due to the damage of a 10pd 8.4oz baby born vaginally the Dr during birth me weighing 240pds was lifting my body off the table using up and down pulling trying to get the baby out she was in sheer panic after walking in rude and cocky about seeing me again because I had just begged her to help me two days prior baby had to wear a helmet for cranial molding my bathroom habits have changed my bladder is weak so much pain and pressure before this pregnancy that I am petrified of the delivery that's coming I just found out that shoulder distocia was the reason trihealth wouldn't take me during this pregnancy about 2 weeks ago I picked up all records and going over it alot of stuff they jotted down is not true like pt wishes to be induced at 42weeks but are inconsistent with other Dr notes that I went to for second opinions.

Best lawyer in the world! Big hearted/hard fighter!!!
Mr O'Keefe has been more than a blessing to my family and especially to me over the last 8+ years since my son's wrongful death. He helped me win a settlement but more sincerely he helped me gain closure to know that I did not cause the death if my son... the Dr did. It gave my family closure to know this over with and my son can finally rest in peace. Mr. O'Keefe will always be part of our family and my close friend. Very professional, very helpful in and out of the court room, and most of all very caring! Thanks so much, Steve, from the bottom of my heart! We love u so much!

Thank you Stephen P. O'Keefe
Steve is a down to earth Lawyer. He walks this complex painful journey with you and explains in detail the risks and the law with compassion. As a mom who lost her daughter, Steve left no stone unturned to investigate her death. We are grateful for his untiring work on her behalf.

Vaccine injury
Mr. O'Keefe helped us with our daughter's vaccine injury claim. At the time, he had never experienced the vaccine court system that handles these cases. He still took on our case and helped guide us through the process. When we needed a specialist, he searched hard to find us the right one in Kentucky. He obviously cares about his clients and will work tirelessly to help them.
