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.

“I hired this lawyer to defend me on my case but instead he made a deal with the prosecutor and tried to force me to agree with the deal he made. Mr Scherer never listened to my side of the story I think he assumed that I am already guilty as charged because he even told me that there is no way I can win this case on a slam. He later pressured me to agree with the deal he made with the prosecutor thru his emails telling me that I will never win the case.”
The above is 100% true of this lawyer, he will sabotage your case. Stay away.

Me and My family are so greatful, My son is back home and free, no more troubles with The Army. Thank you so so much! This is My best Christmas present!

Mr. Scherer is by far the best lawyer I could've asked for, I was facing charges for being awol, and was detained by the police after getting caught. He talked to the people back on base about me and got all the paper work done while I was in jail, so all I had to was sign a paper and be on my way.. His knowledge and professionalism really gave me a peace of mind and helped me not freak out.. I was out of the army after two days of going back on post. Definently recommend him for anyone whose having legal troubles while in the army

Mr Scherer provided excellent counsel in a very sensitive case. I am a physician in the military and was accused of inappropriate behavior by a patient. I retained Mr. Scherer and he was extremely professional and agressive from the get go. He proved fabrication by the accuser and fought until the case was dismissed. He saved my career by protecting me from an erroneous complaint that could have derailed my career. I would recommend Mr. Scherer to anyone needing stellar representation.

Keith Scherer was transparent with me from the beginning as to what I could expect from a case that could have gone either way. Fortunately, due to Keith's experience and proficient skill as a trial attorney, we were able to obtain a much better outcome than I expected. He works hard and gets results.

Keith is an outstanding lawyer that I trust and respect. He represented my 15 y/o son in a police investigation concerning an assault. I found Keith to be highly professional, articulate, accessible, responsive and extremely competent. I was most impressed with how Keith interacted with my son……direct, calming, honest and sincere. Keith has the ability to communicate with a teenager in manner that is highly effective without being intimating. Most importantly, Keith was able to work with the police and ultimately get the investigation closed without charges being filed. My wife and I are very pleased we engaged Keith to represent our son.
To the extent we need a legal representation in the future, Keith will be the go to guy.

Mr. Keith Scherer absolutely saved the day for our family and I will forever be grateful to him for his legal expertise and his guidance. From the very beginning to the very end, Mr. Scherer was supportive, responsive and appropriately aggressive with my husband's case. It was a difficult situation, as my husband was already in the brig when I made the decision to seek assistance from a civilian attorney specializing in military law. Mr. Scherer had to pick up this case after it had already begun and had to aggressively repair some of the damage that had been done. Right from the start, he was solution oriented and positive, yet reasonable about the potential for worst case scenario. When Mr. Scherer agreed to take our case, I was already feeling as though it was indeed the worst case scenario that was occurring and I was at the point where I had lost all hope for a good result. Mr. Scherer was extremely sensitive to my situation and was very detailed regarding what information he would need from my husband, when I was able to speak with him during visitation at the brig. I am a civilian, so all of the military acronyms and processes became quite overwhelming at times. Day by day, due to Mr. Scherer's diligence and effective communication, I began to have hope that he would be able to turn the tide and that my husband would not be destroyed by this. What I appreciated most from Mr. Scherer throughout the entire process, was that he was willing to remind me to calm down and try to find peace, when I became overwhelmed by the stress of the situation. Which I did, quite a few times. I was a stress case and he was kind enough to lead me in the direction of positive thinking. That meant so much to me. He is strong minded and confident in his decisions, yet when offering his legal expertise, he was patient with me and put in the time to ensure that I was clear regarding next steps and what to expect. My daughter and I were alone in this state, my husband was in the brig and my resources were limited. During this case, Mr. Scherer was appropriately aggressive when needed and equally supportive. When difficult decisions needed to be made, he gave me details that I asked for and then allowed me to ask as many questions as I needed to feel comfortable. All of our communication was by email or phone, as he was in a different state, and I was impressed with his ability to build my trust so quickly by his outstanding performance and solid responses. When it came time for the court martial, I was even more impressed and so relieved to meet Mr. Scherer. He was prepared, focused, supportive and on the day of court, when I walked into the court room filled with anxiety and so afraid, I looked at Mr. Scherer and his partner and was filled with a sense of peace. I knew I had the very best representing the interests of my family and I was not disappointed. I have never seen such confidence and expertise in a court room. Mr. Scherer and his partner were respectful and appropriate, however; their presence was hard to miss. I know without a doubt, that if Mr. Scherer would not have represented my husband, that we would not have had the same result. After a long day of court, it was so rewarding to hear the final verdict from the jury, which was the best case scenario. After so many months of fear, to be able to hear that my husband was safe and this situation was over, well, there are no words to describe. Mr. Scherer had a huge smile on his face when it was all said and done, not because he had a "win", but because I believe he was sincere in his desire to help our family and he shared in our joy. As I stated at the beginning of this review, I will forever be grateful. I don't think Mr. Scherer truly understands what he did for our family, but the positive results of his intervention in this case will trickle throughout our lives as a reminder that life is precious. He will always be remembered as "the very best".
