Stephen Keathley, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have known Joe for about ten years and am familar with his work as an attorney, first as a prosecutor and then working for citizens accused of crime. I endorse him due to the high level of professionalism and throughness he brings to bear in representing clients. As a former Distirct Attorney, I am aware that having the perspective from both sides of the criminal justice system is an advantage for any practicing lawyer in this field. Joe has this experience and utilizes it well. He is a respected leader in his community, a loving father and husband. He is a credit to the legal profession and I am proud to call him a friend and colleague. Steve A. Keathley Attorney at Law Corsicana, Texas
