This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Brains, morals, whole package.
Keith Jones has been the most ethical, realistic, and smartest attorney I've ever met. He lets me know what to expect, breaks down processes in detail, and works hard to do his job right. I don't like going tp court with all the strangers, MY EX HUSBAND, and the emotional charge that's generally accompanied with custody battles, but Keith Jones makes me feel comfident and secure in my decisions and most of all the decision to ask for his help. I believe he's a man that can lay his head on his pillow at night with a clear conscience and peace of mind because he has morals. I haven't known him long and my custody case isn't over, but I have a strong feeling that I don't have to worry. I wish there were more attorneys like him so justice can be served the right way for good people out there than need help and don't have the right words to say. Thanks mr. Jones. With all my heart.

It was the calming, patient voice of reason I needed.
Keith for me has been my legal go-to for many years. His Knowledge of family law in my divorce and even years after has helped me to weather the often frustrating and helpless feelings that come with a divorce. He has more than once shown me that a quick reaction is often the wrong way to handle conflicts and that a soft touch in some cases helps to reflect some positive light towards me as a person in a tough situation. I would recommend Keith jones for his deeply rooted beliefs in justice and also in the integral concept of family. Because at some point with kids there will be plenty of opportunities to be the bigger person and not have to wish that things had been handled differently.
