Attorney Patrick William O’Keefe Cares
It can be difficult and downright overwhelming sifting through the scores of internet ads, trying to find the right criminal defense attorney for you. If you have already hired an attorney, are they representing you in their full exploding capacity? Are they a specialist in their chosen field, or do they seem like a jack-of-all-trades, master of none? Attorney O’Keefe has earned a reputation as one of the most powerful and influential trial lawyers in Michigan. Where does this power and influence come from? It comes from caring; caring for his clients, and caring for their families. You can rest assured that if Patrick William O’Keefe is chosen as your lawyer, he will stop at nothing to ensure you get the best result possible for you. He will explain ALL your options, including the pros and cons of pleading guilty or going to trial. If you consult Mr. O’Keefe early enough, he will even work tirelessly to see that you are never charged with a crime in the first place.
After handling hundreds of trials, motions, and appeals, Attorney O’Keefe has seen far too many people who gave up important constitutional rights because of bad advice from their attorneys or because they were told not to fight. He has seen far too many people who were pressured by judges, prosecutors, and even their own defense attorney to plead guilty because the stakes were too high, the judge wanted to go on vacation, or the docket was overflowing with cases and their case needed to be disposed of quickly. The constitutional rights to a trial by jury, to remain silent, and to force the prosecution to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, are the biggest and most powerful weapons in your arsenal. Mr. O’Keefe is a lawyer who understands how to use those weapons to your advantage.
Far too often, persons accused of a crime have suffered at the hands of timid, lazy, or ignorant attorneys who are too afraid to fight for their clients in the face of a judge or prosecutor who is being unfair. It is true that most judges care deeply about the constitution and the protections it affords us. However, many judges have lost sight of these protections. Mr. O’Keefe believes strongly that every person accused of a crime, no matter how serious the offense, deserves to be treated with dignity and respect by the criminal justice system. Attorney O’Keefe is committed to giving his clients the respect and fair treatment they deserve, both in and out of court.
Attorney O’Keefe is not just a master trial lawyer. In addition to his professional interests, Mr. O’Keefe is a devout family man and an active member of the greater Lansing community. He possesses immeasurable skills and a charisma that is unmatched both in and out of the courtroom. Simply stated, he cannot be outworked.
