What a great Lawyer
I had a different attorney working on my case, Colm meet me at the court house one day because my lawyer had gone to a game or something and he asked Colm to represent me which was supposed to be just a appearance. Colm got more done for me in the 45 min he spent on my case then my attorney who had been working on it for months this man knows his law and has great ethics. You don't remember me sir but Thank you

Excellent lawyer
The best lawyer took my case and did the best job and I am very happy with the result. He was very interested in the smallest details. His personality is very respectful and gives enough time to talk on the phone or in the personal interview. Big thanks I encourage everyone to hired him.

Great results from a true professional
Colm went over and above with regards to my expectations and resolution of matters in my situation. His knowledge, experience and integrity were on full display in our frequent and thorough communications throughout the process. I walked away extremely pleased with his results from a matter I believed to be unjust. I would undoubtedly hire him again and would suggest to anyone to do the same.

Excellent support!
Colm was responsive, aggressive and prompt! My guns were stolen out of locked compartments in my rv. They were found three days later on the side of the road untouched! The issues on their return to me developed with the local PD and the aggravations thereunto. Colm made the right calls, followed up in a timely manner, kept me informed of what he was doing and greatly aided in the guns being returned sooner than expected…and ALL the guns/accessories, etc! Good job, Colm!

Weapon Issue
Attorney, Colm Keane agreed to take my case which really made me happy. He explained to me how this case would be handled by the court and what he wanted me to do prior to the court date. I did as Attorney Keane suggested and the court dropped the case as he indicated would probably happen. Attorney Keane was professional from the moment we talked until this issue was resolved. I can not thank him enough for the great job he did for me. I would definitely recommend Attorney Colm Keane. Great job Sir!

Owe him my life
Colm took the time to listen to me and the evidence rather than just settle for some plea deal. He’s an awesome lawyer who saved my life!

Cleared my record
Colm was an amazing asset towards clearing my name. I was wrongfully accused of DWI and he managed to find evidence in my favor and not only get charges dismissed but help me through the confusing trials of getting it totally expunged. Colm actually took the time to listen to me and cared about what was best for me and even took the time to contact me after the dismissal. He’s a top-notch attorney and has become a friend, too.

Colm The Keane, man of legend
I was unlawfully detained and then unlawfully arrested for what the officer called unlawful possession of a weapon. The firearm was well hidden and in no way in plain sight. I called the TX law shield and explained my situation. I was promptly called shortly after to hear my side. Colm Keane picked up the case running. He was able to get it dismissed within a few months and my firearm was returned. Thank you for your hard work and time.

Top Professional Lawyer
When I was in need of legal advice and assistance, Colm was not only willing to help me, but also so amazingly useful and expeditious with sound judgment. Without his support, I would have had to give up meeting my need. With it, I now have what I was seeking and am so grateful.

Colm got my case dismissed!
I would highly recommend Colm's services to anyone in need of criminal defense representation. He is very knowledgeable of all aspects of criminal law and his past experience as a District Attorney will tremendously help in your defense. In the unlikely event I am need of representation in the future, I am confident I would utilize Colm to help again with my case.

Great attitude with a honest opinion
I consulted with Colm about my case before I hired him for representation he listened to me and we talked about my case in detail. I had heard about his staff from a friend and was skeptical, I mean a honest attorney?? Colm always shot straight with me, before and during my case. He never made any promises that he couldn't back up. I like how he carried himself at court along with the way he spoke to everyone. Colm never made me feel as I wasn't as important as his other clients. Phone calls & emails were returned in a timely manner when ever I had a question. I can't say enough good things about him while he took care of my case. Hiring a lawyer can be a very difficult thing to do, I truly believe that Colm and his staff looked out for my best interest through out my ordeal. Colm went over with me many scenarios about my case and a few "if's" after each court visit, gave me the update on everything after each visit to court. The only negative thing I can say is that I was told to be at court at a certain time by my lawyers staff and the time was an hour after court started, lucky I was at court but in the hallway.

Did not listen to anything I said
I worked with Colm on my divorce after my previous attorney, Erin Groce, abruptly closed her practice and relocated to Austin. I was recommended to Kreiger & Ongert by Ms. Groce's, it was my mistake for following through. Colm and Mrs. Ongert did little to assist me through my divorce proceedings. I explained to them what the situation was, what I wanted, and how volatile and argumentative my then spouse would be. 90% of my communication was with with their staff online via a website/app called MyCase, with the exception of random phone calls asking for more funds. They missed deadlines set on the Court Docket, even AFTER I asked them about the dates. They weren't firm with opposing counsel to get Discovery Documents back to aid my case. They ignored numerous requests for Mediation, stating "nothing happens immediately." Only to FINALLY Schedule mediation after they missed a huge deadline with the court and needed to file for an extension, which ultimately cost me more. Once mediation happened, 2 months , I explained to Colm what my former spouse would do, yet we sat there over the allotted time, while opposing counsel and my former spouse nitpicked over what mugs she wanted, among other knickknacks. To which Colm stated he couldn't believe this was happening. I stated that is what I had been dealing with for years. If you want an attorney/firm that is going to be there for you, steer clear of Krieger & Ongert, as well as Colm. While they have experience on paper, they hardly showed their expertise. They simply collected a paycheck.
