Hiring a Lawyer? Here Are Some Guidelines to Use in Making Your Decision.
If you are in the market for an attorney, here are some good questions to ask your potential attorney:
1) How much experience do they have in this area of law?
2) What are my chances of success?
3) How many cases have you tried?
Lastly, do not be afraid to discuss the price with your attorney. Next to medicine, the practice of law is one area where you cannot afford to hire the cheapest lawyer on the market.

WHAT SAY MY CLIENTS:
Client Brad Kihn talks about his acquittal in sexual assault accusations and the role Patrick O’Keefe played in his defense.
Patrick O’Keefe is nothing short of Brilliant. His knowledge and commitment to the law is incredible. Our son found himself falsely accused of CSC and was arrested. As our lives were falling apart, Patrick stepped in and worked tirelessly to defend our son. I didn’t think I could be any further impressed, but the case ultimately went to trial, and Patrick was truly amazing. We felt his dedication throughout the process. His investigation of the facts and evidence was intensely thorough. He was one step ahead of prosecution at every turn. When the not guilty verdict came in, I knew I owed my life and the life of my son to Patrick O’Keefe. There is no one else I would want to be in the courtroom with me. Our family will NEVER forget what you have done for us. Thanks Patrick, you gave us the best Christmas present ever!!A Client from Lansing, December 2017
Our son recently got in some misdemeanor legal trouble. Mr. O’Keefe successfully negotiated a plea, which allowed him to continue with school and not affect his driving or student loans. We are grateful to Mr. O’Keefe for all of his hard work. Our son had not ever been in trouble before and this was out of character for him. A second chance and a lesson learned. Thank you!A Client from Ingham County, August 2014
Patrick, not only did you set my mind at ease, but you followed through and got the results I needed. Thank you for your hard work.A Client from Mason, April 2014
I found Mr. O’Keefe to be confident, professional and efficient in settling the charges I faced without trial. I felt confident he would have handled the trial efficiently.A Client from Lansing, November 2014.
