ATTORNEY PATRICK WILLIAM O’KEEFE ACHIEVES RECERTIFICATION IN CRIMINAL TRIAL LAW WITH THE NATIONAL BOARD OF TRIAL ADVOCACY

LANSING, MI -The National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) is pleased to announce that Patrick William O’Keefe of the law firm O’Keefe Law, PLLC, has successfully achieved recertification as a criminal trial advocate.  The NBTA was formed out of a strong conviction that both the law profession and its clients would benefit from an organization designed specifically to create an objective set of standards illustrating an attorney's experience and expertise in the practice of trial law.

Patrick William O’Keefe is part of a growing number of trial attorneys that have illustrated their commitment to bettering the legal profession by successfully completing a rigorous application process and providing the consumer of legal services with an objective measure by which to choose qualified and experienced legal counsel.

The elaborate screening of credentials that all NBTA board certified attorneys must successfully complete includes: demonstration of substantial trial experience, submission of judicial and peer references to attest to their competency, attendance of continuing legal education courses and proof of good standing.

Board Certification is the highest, most stringent, and most reliable honor an attorney can achieve.  Board certifications are the only distinctions awarded by non-profit organizations.  The NBTA as well as all board certifying organizations are committed to safeguarding the public’s ability to choose a good attorney.

Patrick William O’Keefe earned his undergraduate degree in Liberal Studies from the University of Notre Dame.  He is a graduate of Michigan State University College of Law. Mr. O’Keefe is licensed to practice in Michigan.  He has been involved in well over 250 jury trials in the past 16 years, including several high-profile state and federal cases. He is a member of the Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham County Bar associations, National College for DUI Defense (NCDD), and the Michigan Mental Health Diversion Council.  He has published commentary on criminal jury instructions through the Institute for Continuing Legal Education and written op-eds for the Ingham County Legal News.  He is currently working on his non-fiction book, Anatomy of a Persecution, which is set to be published by December of 2020.

Approximately three percent of American lawyers are board certified, and Mr. O’Keefe is a member of a very select group who has taken the time to prove competence in their specialty area and earn board certification.
