Incredible Attorney + Firm - You Won't Regret Hiring KLS!!!
Jeff and his associates are incredible! I can't say enough about how they stay focused on the CHILD and what's best for them vs anything else. Jeff is extremely knowledgeable about the law and how it should be applied to ensure everyone involved in the case comes out with reasonable outcomes. He's relentless for his clients, even making himself accessible after hours and on weekends if necessary to protect the rights of his client and their children. He's willing to go to the mat time and time again for his clients and their children, even putting himself on the line to make his point to the courts. He doesn't play games and isn't afraid to challenge the status quo regardless of who's pushing it. During tough times in the case, he was a great encourager that things would get better and they did. He sees through the lies and manipulations to get to the truth and the core of the issues. I've not only used him for family law, but also business law. His firm covers so many areas and have such great counsel that I would HIGHLY recommend him for any client and any issue. If he's not an expert in the area, he knows who to send you to. Don't hesitate when considering and hiring Jeff and KLS...you won't regret it!

Very professional, knowledgeable and empathetic
Mr. Keller and his KLS associates are very professional, knowledgeable and empathetic. They represented me for child assistance legal challenges and real estate paperwork. I recommend KLS for Legal services.

A lawyer who solves problems
I came to Jeff Keller out of desperation with a problem involving my business-partner. Jeff took my situation very personally, found a solution, enabling me to be able to sleep at night.

Positive Outcomes
Jeff is very professional, and maintains a powerful posture with other attorneys. Jeff demonstrates his skill with the knowledge needed to represent his clients positively.

The attorney you want on your side
Jeff is an excellent lawyer that you want fighting for you. He has worked for me on my divorce and custody issues and provided top-notch legal consul and representation during the court proceedings. The thing I appreciate the most is how he can take such an emotional and stressful event and deal with it in a very strong but yet fair manner which has helped me be calmer than expected.

Highly Recommended!!!
I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone involved in an unfortunate divorce and/or child custody case. Jeff has taken the time to validate, comprehend, and appreciate the facts of the case. While it has been discouraging that other lawyers involved in the case have not taken a similar approach, I am encouraged by Jeff’s ethical and reasonable practice and handling of my case. Jeff is always available, responsive, and there to provide guidance when it is needed. I am confident that his legal and professional guidance will provide for the best possible outcome on behalf of all parties involved. Jeff has been great to work with and I would recommend him for any legal matter.

Keller always gets the job done!
Jeff Keller is the best attorney I have ever worked with. He has helped me with several legal matters and always gets the job done to my satisfaction. It gives me piece of mind to know that I can count on him to take care of most anything that may pop up in my business and personal life.

Excellent resource for divorced dads
Jeff really helped me out, when I felt defeated, seemingly out of options, Jeff quickly helped not only overcome longstanding obstacles with respect to my ex and child, but he helped me gain some much needed perspective and I am in a far better place for it. I'd recommend him highly.

Go Elsewhere
Really I wish 0 stars were available. I originally found Keller legal through google and I went there because they advertised that they specialized in "Father's Rights." Don't let this false advertising fool you. Needed to get a divorce from my cheating ex wife. Did they help me? Sure, only after blowing through my $3,500 deductible quicker than I could think and failing to give me month to month invoices as we previously agreed (and signed an agreement saying that he would). I was only given an invoice about half way through my divorce (3-4 months) that I owed him about another $1,000. The bill breakdown only had numbers listed, I told Mr. Keller that I needed and HOURLY breakdown, not just numbers pulled out of his ass. Said he would get them to me in a week. Nothing. Another month goes by and he send me yet another invoice. I repeat the same thing, I need HOURLY BREAKDOWNS. He'll get it to me first thing next week. Nothing. When am I given what is needed? The day before we are going to court to finalize the divorce. Now I owe them an additional $4,500+ and he says if I don't pay them $1,000 on that day they will not represent me in court the next day. What choice do I have? He was 'nice' enough to let me make monthly payments but between the child support (they couldn't even get me 50/50 custody mind you), Alimony (or maintenance, whatever you want to call it), on top of everything else, I have no money. Nothing. Also mind you, my divorce was an easy one. Married just 3 years so we had a house and a kid. That's it. Do not be fooled by these guys. They do a horrible job, lead you around in circles for months, and then send a huge bill at the end.

Response from Jeffrey Keller September 10, 2019
We are sorry to hear that you were not fully satisfied with our services. We explain to all of our clients from the onset that the decision to fight over child custody or assets is the sole decision of the client. We advise the client as to what we believe he or she should do, but in the end it comes down to the wishes of the client. We always follow the directions provided by the client; just as we did in this case. Also, we also would never tell a client that they have to make a payment the day before a hearing or we will not appear. In order for us to withdraw, we must file certain protocol and provide written notice and allow the client at least 21 days to secure new counsel. Divorce is oftentimes very difficult and painful for the parties, and quite often the anger and bitterness from a failed marriage can be misdirected towards third parties. Our job, which we take very seriously, is to help and guide our clients through the legal system and secure the best outcome possible in the divorce proceeding. We do not, and can not, guarantee that a judge will grant the relief our client would like to obtain. We simply do our best to secure the best outcome possible for each client based upon his or her situation.

"I began my legal career working as an associate attorney for Jeff Keller at his law firm, Keller Legal Services, P.C. I obtained invaluable training and exposure to effective legal representation. Jeff has cultivated a law practice grounded in diligent representation and successful resolution of disputes for individuals and business clients. I witnessed Jeff navigate through complex and highly contested litigation in a variety of fields, including divorce, child support, child custody, commercial, and construction matters. His ability to render favorable results has led to continuous referrals by clients and other attorneys for over twenty years. What separates Jeff from other attorneys is his willingness and ability to develop thoughtful and effective legal strategies to win for his clients under any set of circumstances. I endorse Jeff to all individuals and businesses in need of legal representation, and to all attorneys in search of a reliable professional to refer cases to."
