I defend people accused of domestic assault in Austin, Texas.  My clients are the type of people who plan for their futures and generally make good choices in life. Being accused of a crime is one of the most stressful situations that many of my clients have ever faced.  My clients also understand that a conviction on their criminal records will do permanent damage to their reputations and their careers.

 

I do not represent common criminals.  My clients are good people that cannot afford to NOT to be represented by an exceptional attorney that focuses on defending people accused of domestic assault in Travis County.  Protecting my clients from a system that treats all defendants like common criminals is my foremost concern.

Excellent legal team. Will get promising results.
Kiele Pace and her legal team at her firm are very thorough and knowledgeable in their defense and managed to get both of my domestic violence cases dismissed with out me making any type of plea. They went above and beyond to dismiss my cases, and are willing to take on stubborn prosecutors who don't like to lose.

Wish she lived closer
Consulted with the attorney, who went out of her way to help me. She explained where I was in the criminal process, what was likely to happen and the best steps I could take. Unfortunately, she didn't live in my district so I couldn't hire her, but that didn't stop her from researching and providing advice on a myriad of concerns I had. If she worked that hard on someone who couldn't hire her, just think what a tremendous resource she would be to her clients! This is the type of lawyer people pray they retain when one is needed!

Top tier Law Firm
Kiele and her team really went to bat for me. From start to finish, they were confident, knowledgeable, and willing to spend time explaining things so that I knew what to expect and understood all of the possibilities. When I hired Kiele, she was a solo attorney, but she built a team and a great system while she was representing me and always put the right people in place to handle each stage of my case. My trial team was Linda and Jackie. Both of them are phenomenal lawyers and they did a damn good job.  I am an African American man and was falsely accused by a white woman in Lakeway, but they were still able to get it all thrown out. I can’t even explain how phenomenal that is and what a positive impact it made on my life. Hopefully I will never need their services again, but if I do, I will use The Pace Law Firm for the rest of my life. Kiele and her team have earned my loyalty. Charles

Great team!
Kiele has assembled an amazing team of highly trained professional lawyers. Her team of all stars made this unfortunate circumstance as painless as possible, from pretrial thru jury trial. If I ever need representation in the future, I will not hesitate to call upon Kiele Pace and her team.

Pace Law Firm was the best choice for my case!
The moment I needed to contact someone, I called 3 places around 2am. Kiele and her assistant picked while they were out of town and offered to fly in the next day to handle my case. I decided that they were going to be the best fit because of their response time and willingness to assist. We have reviewed my initial case and supported argument and they decided to take on the challenge. We have back and forth communication via phone, email, text messaging through their companies communication service. They have helped every step of the way. I didn’t even step foot inside a court room and at the end of the day through process and defending my case, the Pace team was able to find reasons to support a dismissal. I am very happy with their over all process and fees. Upfront communication on cost and even had a payment plan. I highly recommend Kiele and the Pace Firm team without a doubt. High professionals who will go the distance for their clients.

Client
Kiele and her team did an awesome job helping me get my case dismissed. She has a great team of individuals and went above and beyond. I was not familiar with the process and she explained all the details to me in my initial visit before I agreed to let her represent me. After her and her team reviewed, she helped me get my case dismissed. It only took 11 months while most cases can take well over 18 months. I am completely satisfied with the outcome and glad I chose Pace Law.

Kiele and her team worked for 2 years to get our case dismissed on false accusations from the police department. They did a fabulous job proving the DA had no case.

Professional and Prompt
During a difficult time, The Pace Firm came to my rescue. The day that I called for a phone consult, I spoke with Alex, who was extremely knowledgable, and knew the answer to every question I had. Kiele went right to work on my case, which resulted in my case being resolved favorably and in a very timely manner. I have never felt rushed or hurried off the phone at anytime I had a question. They really take their time and truly care about what you may be dealing with. I also worked with Melissa de la Garza, who also exceeded every expectation I had. These folks are amazing and really helped me during a strenuous time. I highly recommended this professional Firm.

Kiele and her team helped me a great deal. Dealing with a family violence arrest was very troubling for me but Kiele and her team were very helpful. They always stay in contact with you and they always have answers for any and all concerns you have. I recommend them.

Excellent lawyer! Her services are top notch and she will leave no stones unturned until she gets you the desired results.
In 2012 I was accused of assault family violence and interference of 911 call by my ex-wife, which was a lie on all angles. Kiele took up my case in 2016 after having previously having a public defender who almost messed the whole thing for me.She is the only person who even bothered calling me back and we had an in-depth discussion about the case. She has been following up the case for me in an expeditious manner. Her knowledge of the criminal justice system in the Travis County is top notch. Her costs are very reasonable considering she is the very best in Travis County when it comes to lawyers specializing in domestic violence issues. And because of her great work, my case is getting dismissed as i write this. Her feedback has been valuable in terms of what the possible outcomes of the case could be, and advise on what to do in each scenario. Kiele is a lawyer am forever indebted to and i recommend her services to whoever is looking for a lawyer specialized in domestic violence cases.

Professional, Effective and Highly Recommended!
Kiele and her team were there for me every step of the way after I was falsely accused of domestic violence towards a child and other domestic related charges. From beginning to end, Kiele and her team were easy to reach and very quick to respond to any and all of my inquiries, questions and concerns. In particular, Alex Pace was of great assistance during this extremely stressful and anxiety filled time in my life. Kiele and her team were successful in getting all of the charges dismissed and I can't thank them enough for their time and effort during the entire ordeal.

Helpful and Professional
It is a stressful time when you find yourself looking for a criminal defense lawyer, but the Pace Firm could be a perfect fit for your circumstances and needs. I was confident in my decision thanks to the level of professional excellence displayed by Kiele and all staff with whom I worked. At the time that my case was scheduled, I was represented by a new member of the team, Melissa de la Garza, who displayed a genuine care about getting me the best possible outcome and was open and communicative at each step along the way. Any time I had a question, needed clarification, or requested an update, the Pace team was quick to respond with helpful information. Finding a legal team who can provide you with this level of experience, professionalism, and desire to help can make difficult circumstances like this much less stressful to go through.
