Attorney Patrick O’Keefe also handles a select number of appeals. Recently, Attorney O’Keefe was retained by a client who was told that she would only be facing 12-24 months incarceration-and possibly even probation-if she pled guilty. She took the plea for that reason, and ended up being sentenced to 4 years in prison. She was swiftly rushed off to a state prison and left behind a husband and two young children.
