After law school, Ben joined one of Missouri’s top Plaintiff firms, and he began representing seriously injured individuals.  He honed his skills as a trial attorney, while witnessing the nickel dime tactics practiced by insurance companies to avoid paying claims.  Drawing on his experience and passion, Ben founded The Keathley Law Office in 2015 to provide legal help to those injured individuals who need it the most.
Ben’s commitment to fighting for others’ legal rights is present in all of his work.  He is a passionate member of the Himalayan Family Healthcare Project and has been appointed by the Mayor of Chesterfield to the Citizens for the Environment Committee.  Ben is also heavily involved in teaching the trial attorneys of tomorrow and proudly coaches the Lafayette High School Mock Trial team.

Best lawyer that I could have ever asked for!!!!
My wife and I and daughter were in a car accident and broke my wrist. He handled my case with another lawyer then opened up his own law firm. He respects and understands your situation and is always willing to help you and much as he can. He has been my lawyer for 4 years I will always use him. I call him if I have a question or worried bout what is happening with the case or just questions. He also was going to help me adopt my wife’s oldest cause I have been in his life since one and his real dad is not in the picture really and was all for me adopting him and he backed out. But I made sure he wasn’t mad. He knows his job and always tries to keep up with his cases. I wanted to say thanks Ben for everything your an awesome lawyer
