Keith was an outstanding advisor and lawyer during a two and a half year ordeal that ultimately led to a Board of Inquiry. Throughout the whole entire process Keith provided me with amazing service and most importantly put my mind at ease. Once at the BOI, Keith provided an amazing defense and was ultimately successful as I was retained in the Naval service. My only regret is not calling Keith sooner in the process. Thank you Keith for preserving my career and protecting what I have worked so very hard for. You have been a blessing to me and my family!!! Again my many thanks!!!

Keith successfully represented my son in a case oversees that had both career and life implications. He was facing very serious charges, which Keith was able to disprove. He told us after reviewing the case and evidence that he felt it was a false case, and he worked hard to prove that. It was an incredibly stressful time for our family, but especially my son. Keith was very direct and encouraging about what he wanted to do, but also brutally honest about the potential negative possibilities of the case. He took charge of the situation, and worked well with my son's military defense team. There was never a time when we had questions or concerns where we couldn't simply text or email him to get answers or updates on the case. After over a year of stress for our family and hard work by Keith, my son's charges were formally dismissed, and he is able to continue with his military career, but more importantly his freedom. I would not wish this type of situation on anyone, but I cannot encourage people enough to seek Keith's counsel in the worst of cases for a solid plan, focus and professionalism. Thank you Keith for everything you have done for our family!!

Both Keith Scherer and Greg Gagne have changed my life completely. Long story short I was accused of some pretty horrible things from my previous marriage that followed me through my separation, deployment phase and divorce that stemmed from spousal support and deployment pay eventually putting me in an extension passing my ETS date by one year. Pretty much Family Advocacy Program, XVIII Corps Inspector General, Criminal Investigative Detectives and my whole chain of command were involved not to mention a couple of officers from Fayetteville Police Department. Being that this was a SHARP/ SARC incident I felt as though I wouldn't stand a chance at proving my innocence. Here in Fort Bragg, each defendant is allowed 2 military lawyers from Trial Defense Services at no expense and being how these specific cases (Rape, assault, etc.) are sometimes biased, the needed effort to ensure my innocence could be proven needed to be doubled. My father had been researching a good lawyer who is oriented in Court Martial cases and had plenty of positive reviews from those who were once in my shoes. After 4 long days in the court room deciding my fate by a selected jury panel, I was acquitted on all charges and I'm now a free man who will be out processing soon with my hard earned benefits and DD-214 in hand. My current wife and I can continue to live our lives without the burden or stress of my ex wife and I will be able to sleep comfortably knowing that I won't be a registered sex offender or be thrown into Leavenworth. I would suggest hiring Keith Scherer and Greg Gagne for every reason known to man, most importantly for freedom in which we as military service members had served for.
