My philosophy is simple. I treat my clients the way I would want to be treated if accused of a crime. I listen. I care. I communicate. And I work tirelessly to provide the best possible representation. This is not a one size fits all law practice. I work with every individual to develop a strategy that is most likely to achieve the desired outcome for the specific case and situation.
At the Law Offices of Robert Keating, PLLC, I believe that every person accused of a crime deserves to be treated fairly and with respect. I understand that facing criminal charges can be one of the most difficult, disruptive, and traumatic experiences of your life. With that in mind, I am committed to not only vigorously protecting your rights but also guiding you through the process and ensuring that you understand the system and all of your options. Whether it is holding the State to its burden of proving the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, negotiating a plea bargain, or exploring pre-trial diversion options, I work diligently to obtain the most favorable outcome possible for each of my clients.
All I do at the Law Offices of Robert Keating, PLLC is criminal defense. I don't divide my time and resources between criminal defense and other areas of law. Defending citizens accused of criminal offenses is my passion and sole focus. I have represented individuals accused of crimes ranging from minor class C misdemeanor public intoxication charges to serious felony offenses such as murder and aggravated assault of a public servant. From arraignment through jury trial, I fight to protect my clients' rights at every stage of the journey through the criminal justice system.
Hiring the right lawyer is critical when you have been accused of a serious crime. I hope that I can help you with your legal issues, but the most important thing is for you to hire an attorney that you can trust with this critical matter. That's one of the reasons I offer free initial consultations. Not only will I be able to evaluate your case and give you some initial thoughts and information about how to best move forward, but you will also have an opportunity to evaluate me. You won't be dealing with an intake attorney who gives a slick presentation, promises you the moon, and then hands the case off to someone else… your consultation will be with me, the attorney who will be leading your case and fighting for you all the way through a jury trial if necessary.
