I first met Tim after I was cited for OWI-2nd in early 2017. A friend of mine referred me to his office the following week, where we met for my free consultation. From our initial meeting through the conclusion of my case, Tim was thorough in explaining not only the court process, but what he was doing on my behalf. I appreciated his prompt responses, thorough explanation of legal jargon, and his timely billing statements. Tim ultimately prevented me from receiving an administrative suspension with the DMV, and his stellar advocacy on my behalf resulted in, what I found to be, a very desirable outcome in my case. I would highly recommend Tim to anybody who might be going through a similar situation.

Tim has helped me on numerous occasions. He is well versed in all things legal. Most recently he helped my son who has ADHD and requested additional time from the GMAT testing agency.
He was only given half the time requested. He went to Tim and together they planned out a strategy. Tim researched the issue and wrote an in depth letter justifiying the need. The reply came back with an extensive list of additional information, evaluations, and letters from multiple additional psychologists. This was a bit overwhelming, but Tim stuck with my son and together they accumulated the required documents . My son collected them from the various places/people and Tim compiled the information with another skillfully crafted letter and submitted this to the testing agency. The extra requested time was finally granted, but only after extensive, and persistent determination. Tim let my son do his part, but then supported him with legally documented precedent and an orderly compilation of their data within a carefully constructed letter.. Tim kept the process on track. As mother of a grown son, i did not participate in the actual appeal, but with my son's permission Tim respectfully kept me informed of their progress.
Tim also has helped me with multiple landlord/tenant issues. He advised me how to proceed with a necessary eviction and what to do about the massive number of belongings left behind. He carried out all the communication for me and answered multiple questions. Tim was always patient and kind even in my frazzled state.
These are the two instances that I needed an attorney. and hired Tim. There are many other instances when Tim has explained the law and the fact that I really didn't need his help . Tim can take a very complicated issue and break it down, explaining in layman's terms the situation and what the possible outcomes maybe. He is approachable and listens well to clients. Tim is honest and straight forward. He discusses fees and anticipated costs.
Tim is calm and very thoughtful. He is obviously very bright and well informed about many aspects of the law. On the rare occasion when Tim doesn't know an answer he will tell you, and
then research it and get back to you.
In addition I appreciate Tim's dedication to solving my legal problems in a timely fashion. He keeps clients updated and keeps processes moving forward.

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 had 2 separate cases with Family Law. Tim Kiefer looked at what I was facing and decided to take both cases with no hesitation.
Tim Kiefer showed compassion and was very dedicated to each case individually.
I had mixed feelings about being able to win either case, and Tim was nothing but positive and confident that we will be okay.
Each case took a couple of months, but I am glad to say that I won both cases.
I will with no doubt recommend him to anyone.

I can't say enough about Tim's services. Professional , thorough and accurate. My case involved the safety of my daughter so trust was paramount. Tim was not only reliable and honest , but in our case , equally as important ; was that he was careful to make the process as comfortable as possible and was thoughtful at every step. I highly recommend Tim and feel he is perfectly suited for the complexities of family law.

I received my first OWI and wanted to speak with a well respected attorney with plenty of experience to inquire whether or not I needed legal council. Tim was very generous with his time and gave me all the help I needed. I will absolutely be calling him again in the future when needed.

I hired Tim Kiefer to help settle my divorce during a difficult time. I don't think I would have had anything close to resolution without Tim's help. His grasp of the law, effective follow-through and care in sensitively handling my case were all first-rate. Tim was always available when I needed to reach him. I'm very happy with the work Tim Kiefer did for me and would highly recommend him for anybody needing a lawyer with his specialties.

I was to be an expert witness in a case that avoided trial because of Tim's persistence and skill in negotiating a settlement.
