Being charged with resisting arrest... Humiliating being advised to take a deal or be found guilty by my Court Appointed Counsel... Devastating. Hiring Tom...Priceless. Mr Keehan is a brilliant man . He chiseled the putrid park bench that I lugged into his office into the statue david. What he accomplished with my case was truly amazing. Case dismissed with prejudice. My case had some complicated issues and he took it upon himself to find all relevant precedent, and present it to the prosecutor and the prosecutor dropped the case within 5 minutes of seeing what Mr Keehan had crafted. I can't say enough

At a time when I was a parent who was scared and paralyzed with fear, Mr Keehan was a source of strength and peace providing guidance and possibilities. I can't imagine how we would have got through all of the ups and downs that come with the justice system without him. From the day he first took my call to our final day in court, I cannot stress enough the value he had to our family. He spent so much time with us and worked so hard on our case. He is gifted not only As an attorney but in being able to relay care and compassion to his clients. He is a star in his field.

Thank you so much Mr. Keehan! I had been found guilty DUI charges about 5 years ago so I was facing a second charge of a DUI. I was so nervous and scared. As you might know, a second conviction has a mandatory sentence. 30 days in jail, lose licence for a year, and $5,000 to $6,000 fine. Mr Keehan saved me from all that. I have very bad anxiety and depression. I've been on all kinds of prescrptions bot the only thing that has ever helped is oxycontin. I had taken 1 pill the day of my arrest. I failed my sobriety test due to mental and physical limitations. Mr. Keehan had done his homework for our day in court. I was very impressed! I'm not going to lie, I wept when I heard the "not guilty" verdict read. I have not had a lot of experience with attorneys but Mr. Keehan set very high expectations for me. I will not hesitate in the future to call Mr. Keehan with any legal issues I might have. He was perfect!

I am the mother of a 16 year old and just completed the stressful and emotionally challenging experience of having my son charged with a serious offense such as Assault 2 –DV and then threatened with adult prosecution if he didn’t plead to Assault 4 DV. We felt we needed a lawyer and by the grace of God we were led to Thomas Keehan. He really did his homework and put his time and effort into the investigation finding very useful information we needed, going out to the scene, interviewing others and urging us to be patience while he fought for a much better offer through negotiations with the prosecutor. I have already mentioned his ability to calm this nervous mother in multiply ways. If i needed any question answered I just called him and he responded very quickly and had answers to my many questions and was very reassuring and never made me feel stupid or that the charges against my son may be true. He always questioned what was said and actually found it to be untrue. He was a blessing to my sleepless nights. Another blessing was his availability to come to court with us that was very comforting. I could go on and on but will end with saying we were able to plead all the way down to disturbing the peace. no DV. I hope I never need him again but will keep his card just the same. God Bless you Thomas! a million Thank Yous!

We feel exceedingly blessed and forever grateful to have had Mr. Keehan represent and stand by our son’s side through his legal process. We are the parents of a young son charged with one of the most serious crimes a person can face. Through the most difficult time in our lives, Mr. Keehan was a source of strength, comfort, and compassion.
The first time we entered Mr. Keehan’s office we were in shock, terrified, and our world was completely upside-down. While never giving us false hope or underestimating the seriousness of the charges against our son, we came away with peace of mind and confidence that he and our family were going to be ok. Throughout the process it was apparent that our child was not just another number on someone’s busy caseload. Mr. Keehan’s care for him was evident in the time he took in getting to know him, in the conversations they had, and in the genuine concern Mr. Keehan expressed for our son as a person as well as his future. He was able to talk to our son about things that in our state of mind at the time would not have occurred to us. No detail was too small or insignificant and he took the time explaining everything until each of us had a clear understanding. When many people would have become impatient, Mr. Keehan was thoughtful, good-natured, and understanding and while the people closest to us looked down on our child with contempt, Mr. Keehan treated him with respect and was truly a person our son felt comfortable confiding in and reaching out to.
We cannot say enough about Tom Keehan’s character and we believe this is the aspect that sets him far above the rest. He honored our wishes about going forward with our case with honesty and transparency. Mr. Keehan has a strong and respectable sense of morality, integrity, and ethics. We never felt pressured to deviate from our wishes for the future of our son and our desire to hold him accountable for his actions. With these hopes at the forefront of the case Mr. Keehan succeeded in giving our son the best opportunity possible for a positive future. We could not have hoped for a better outcome and we would not have trusted the future of our child in any other hands.

I endorse this lawyer. Tom provides outstanding representation to his clients. He is an aggressive and thorough advocate with a depth of experience. I have consistently referred employment law cases to Tom and the feedback from my clients has been overwhelmingly positive. He does a great job.

Tom and I were co-counsel on a very difficult case, and I could not have asked for better in a partnership. He was very focused in a case where complexity could have thrown many lawyers into disarray. We dealt with a case of the highest seriousness, and that fact might have caused egos to flare and case preparation to be made secondary, but it did not. Tom's demeanor and professionalism impressed me. I also watched Tom in court on and off for a couple of years in Grays Harbor County, and can say that he cares about his clients and attends to the small details that criminal defense work abounds in. I'd recommend him without hesitation.
