Tim handled a TRO injunction hearing on very short notice for me. He handled himself brilliantly while up against a pretty irrational person. He took away my stress and gave me the outcome I had hoped for.

I can't say enough about how well this man conducts himself. The man exudes credibility by his manner and his thoughtful nature. He actually tried to give my mom her money back. He spent little time on the case, but the Dane County DA office decided to drop the case rather than deal with this remarkable man as an adversary. I was not as concerned with having all the charges dropped as much as I was simply concerned with being released from jail after 5 days and not being formally charged. I may cut some corners, and have had problems in my past, but I am not nor have ever been a criminal. He recognized that about my character and chastised me for my short comings, which was well deserved however he is a just man and fought for my case because it was the right thing to do. Everybody succumbs to temptation and runs afoul of doing the right thing from time to time. However, the criminal justice system can make a mountain out of a molehill. Sometimes you deserve to pay a fine. Fine. However, you are not a criminal for a moment of weakness or for misunderstanding the consequences of your actions. You are just human. That is why the world needs guys like Timothy D. Kiefer, to grab us out of the pit we put ourselves in, so we can brush ourselves off and go on and not make the same mistakes or be stubborn in the face of our own destruction.

I retained Tim for my divorce and child custody issue. He has been a great support to get things rolling for my case. We did get quite a bit accomplished. He was available after hours via cell phone which was sooooo grateful to help ease my stress that my spouse was brought onto me. This helped me from making any hasty decisions. A super value. We got a good win on child custody which was as good as it could get considering the complexity of my situation at that time.
Thank you Tim for helping me as far as we got with my case! Your services were much welcomed.

I endorse Tim. I have referred several clients to him who were outside of my practice area and they were very pleased with his advice and work. I also have worked with him as the opposing lawyer on family cases, and know him to be a strong and fair advocate for his clients.
