  • “Keith is a skilled trial lawyer who has obtained excellent results for his clients based upon his hard work and concern for the people he represents.”
  • “I worked on a case with Keith last year and consider to be one of Oregon's finest trial attorneys. His professionalism and attention to detail make him stand out amongst his peers. He communicates with his clients and makes them feel great that they chose him as their attorney. Beyond his ability as a trial attorney, Keith is simply a great person and any organization would be lucky to have him as a member.”
