The Keates Law Firm has over 10+ Years Experience handling criminal defense cases. Experience is important when hiring an Attorney, but there are many aspects to consider: Areas of practice, track record, and price are among the top three. Often, past client reviews or testimonials help you sort the good attorneys from the bad. But there are many more considerations.
Our focus is to try and have the case dismissed against you. We don't even discuss pleas until all legal and negotiation options have been explored in detail. This includes Motions to Suppress, Motions to Exclude Evidence based on Invalid Searches or Miranda Right Violations, and Probable Cause determinations.
Our Results Speak for Themselves. Keates Law Firm has a record of dismissals and acquittals in a variety of criminal cases. We are dismissal focused, and we get results.
