    Keith has been a very important part of my custody negotiations. He is practical and communicates honestly. He works very hard to make sure my best interests are maintained. He has always been on-top of things and well-prepared with suggestions, legal options and all court hearings. I would recommend him to anyone for this type of legal need.

    Keith was excellent to communicate with, listen to concerns and provide counsel. He kept me informed every step of the legal process and was well prepared for trial. He presented detailed argument in court and he executed a well prepared plan for witness examination. He also presented relevant and recent case law that led to a quick and decisive ruling. I could not have asked for anything more form this true professional.
