Outstanding Attorney
Keith is amazing. If your divorce involves a child with special needs, there simply is no attorney more knowledgable than Keith. He seeks what is fair, just and reasonable. He is accessible , supportive and as nice as can be!

Great Decision to Hire this Lawyer
Keith's knowledge, confidence, and sense of humor got me through a very difficult time. He was efficient and clear in his communications during the legal proceeding, and I felt confident and very happy to have him by my side. His para legal, Spring Liberty was incredibly helpful as well. Great team, great experience they bring to tough situations!

Highly Recommend
Keith came highly recommended from a friend whose husband serves as a Judge and who spoke highly of Keith's reputation for doing what is fair and just for the children of divorce. He served as the lead attorney on my divorce case and did the initial consultation with me. Keith managed to put me at ease despite the obvious emotional distress I was under, and although I ended up working with an associate at his firm, he remained involved in my case, offering his nearly encyclopedic knowledge of family law as needed. I am so grateful to have had him in my corner during this difficult time in my life, and can't say enough about him and his entire firm.

The best ever.
I contacted Keith Maples to ask him a question about my former foster son who was having a REALLY hard time with his child's mother. Keith understood that my foster son had NO money to hire an attorney and volunteered to take his case, pro bono. My foster son was beyond proud -- for the first time, perhaps in his life, he felt heard, understood and respected by Keith. This was not an easy case and Keith didn't make a dime off of it, but the way he represented my foster son was as if he was the most important paying client Keith Maples ever had. Being represented by such a respectable, talented attorney made my foster son feel as if he mattered. It changed him and he tries every single day to prove that this decision was the right one for his little girl. I am eternally grateful for Keith's capable expertise, his commitment and his calm demeanor. Child custody cases are always hard, and this one was a mess, but he got the job done. My foster son now has primary custody of his daughter. He would have NEVER been able to do this on his own. Keith Maples is a brilliant, compassionate attorney. I given him a 38 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Great Lawyer
Keith is one of the best prepared and thorough attorneys I have worked with in any category of law. He always acted as my advocate and even a friend when I needed him in that role. He was honest with me at all times and never took his eye off the ball. He was able to assess the situation from all angles and had the vision to anticipate the possible outcomes. In his approach to my case he always sought the best solution that could preserve the integrity of my family. While he looked for a favorable result, he did it with full regard and respect for the ethical elements of the process. He was a consummate professional who held me as his client accountable and never hesitated to push back in order to do the right think. In my judgment, Keith's demeanor inspires confidence and trust. Both critical when dealing with what is typically a highly stressful life event. He is a very wise Attorney, compassionate and understanding. And he helps provide balance and perspective to his clients when the emotional side tends to blind them. I felt fortunate to have had him on my side and grateful to have been sent to him.
