I had reached out to a few Attorneys when trying to decide who I wanted to hire to represent me in my criminal case (one was even a referral from a friend). I believe it was Chris' knowledge and general care about the outcome of the case which is why I hired Chris. I was originally charged with 5th Degree Assault, the State added, Destruction of Property and Disorderly Conduct. During the process, Chris kept me well informed on what was going on. We were offered two separate settlements from the state, after discussing each option with Chris, we decided to proceed to trial. During trial, Chris showed a great deal of experience, knowledge, and preparation which ultimately lead to 3 not guilty verdicts. I would HIGHLY recommend Chris to anyone that is looking for an experienced attorney that has your best interest in mind. He's not looking to make a quick buck, he will do whatever he can to help clear you of your charges.

Chris was patient and gave me the facts straight. He is knowledgeable and set realistic expectations of what to expect throughout the whole process. Always easily reached when I had a question and was always well prepared when we met with prosecutors etc. Highly recommend Chris!

Lawyer Christopher Keyser was a pleasure to work with; if that is possible with an attorney in any case. He always gave me the best and worse possible out comes and gave his professional opinion on what was most likely to be the outcome. He interpreted all the legal documents so it was easy for me to understand. He did not talk down to me or over my head. He was very strait forward and eliminated any surprises.
Christopher Keyser always returned my calls, texts or e-mails quickly. If he was ever running a little late for a court room appearance he always contacted me in plenty of time so I did not need to worry.
When I contacted Mr. Keyser even during the months between court appearances he was always willing to answer my questions.
I hope I never have to use his professional services again but, in a situation that I do need legal representation I won't look for another attorney. I will go directly to Attorney Christopher Keyser.
