I was represented by attorney O’Keefe better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Attorney O’Keefe fought hard for me. He went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure the best outcome on my DWI case. I was enrolled in the Rockingham county adult diversion program. Alyson the adult diversion coordinator was more than accommodating to me and fantastic to work with. I highly recommend this Firm

– D.F.

James Reis was generous with his time, professional in his manner, and obsessive in finding a solution to my problem. His willingness to help me with my situation impacted my ability to move my life in a positive direction. I can’t adequately convey just how much he helped me.

Both Attorneys 10 out of 10 stars!

August 26, 2021-Hampton District Court.

I was pulled over for something that was overlooked 10 years ago. I was cited with a class A misdemeanor, despite the troopers insistence that if I just paid the reinstatement fee it would go away. I received a letter in the mail the Saturday before my case conference stating that I was facing jail time for something that I believed was taken care of 10 years ago. I had 4 days to find a lawyer. Kevin was the second lawyer I called as another firm couldn’t help on such short notice. He was quick listen and jump into action. He was able to get the misdemeanor dropped to a traffic level violation. Which meant zero jail time for me! He was quick to answer my emails and phone calls and did a good job preparing for my court date. I’m happy that I’m finally able to close those chapter of my life. Thank you Kevin for your patience and professionalism. I would recommend you to anyone who needed a criminal defense lawyer in NH.

DWI reduced to reckless operation (2021): Professional, Prompt, and willing to get to know the client and circumstances as much as the case he is asked to tackle. Utilizing his negotiation skills and leveraging his professional network, Kevin O'Keefe provided an outcome that exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for representation.

Kevin O'Keefe is hands down one of the best lawyers I've ever had! He is very caring, helpful and does a lot to satisfy his clients. He went above and beyond to help me even after my case was closed I am very grateful for him and his services that he provided to me. He helped in so many ways that no lawyer would ever do. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Kevin O'Keefe was amazing. He really went to bat for me. I called him way too much and he always answered my calls and never complained. He stayed in touch with my mother and kept her updated. He did his best to stay in touch with community corrections and keep me informed.

2021: They are excellent lawyers. I talked to Jim about a case I had & the guy knows everything. He goes the extra measure to see what your case is all about something the other lawyers I call didn’t even bother to do. These are the attorneys you want on your side guarantee.

2021: Professional, Prompt, and willing to get to know the client and circumstances as much as the case he is asked to tackle.

2021: Jim was incredibly helpful an knowledgeable about a legal matter for me. He went above and beyond in terms of effort.

Jim Reis exceeded all expectations I had for legal counsel and provided me the best representation I could hope for. He's always been very communicative and kept me informed every step of the way during a harrowing legal process while continually asking for my input. Jim got me exactly the outcomes I had requested both times he represented me. I strongly recommend his services to anyone in need of litigative assistance.

Attorney Jim Reis was more than willing to take up on my case against false allegations and I was extremely satisfied with both the level of quality of service and professionalism I was accorded. He immediately took time to listen and offered guidance on the lengthy process before discussing his legal fees. He charged a flat fee for the case and took time to answer all my questions and prepare the case to get the desired successful outcome. He never seemed concerned at all taking more time on the case as long as it delivered the desired outcome and he didn’t charge more for the extra time. Without the help of Attorney Reis, I wouldn’t have had the successful outcome on the case. Jim protected my rights and presented defense against false allegations and ensured evidence was properly presented exposing inconsistencies in false allegations. We created great rapport and I was treated as a friend than just another client. I would highly recommend Jim to any client seeking quality representation.

Kevin O'Keefe is one of the best attorneys I know. Kevin and I started our careers together at the Public Defender's office in Broward County, Florida - it was there that I got to know Kevin really well. I've seen Kevin in trial many times, and he's as good as it gets. Kevin is highly intelligent, but he has a "down-to-earth" personality about him that makes him likeable to juries, judges, clients, and opposing counsel alike. Most importantly, Kevin is a really good person - and will always look out for his client's best interest. I honestly cannot give a higher recommendation than I am giving for Kevin O'Keefe. I would strongly encourage anybody considering hiring Kevin to do so. You can't go wrong with this lawyer.

Great competent lawyer!

I was very pleased with Kevin's representation, I would definitely use his services again if needed. My felony drug charge was dropped and I received a misdemeanor with community service due to a motion to suppress we filed.

– D.C.

I was facing jail time for drug charges. After meeting Kevin, the State offered to drop the jail time for probation. Then, he was able to get both of those dropped completely and I could perform community service and enter a drug program which I just completed, even taking 5 extra classes to better myself. Kevin was able to get me out of the system more quickly and I reformed myself through opportunity and hard work.

– R.C.

I hope you're not in trouble like I was, but I would recommend [Kevin] to anyone.

– T.S.

I have been fortunate enough to have been represented by Attorney James Reis on more than one occasion and both times I was treated as if I was the only client on his docket. It’s no exaggeration to say that Attorney Reis helped me turn my life around. If not for his hard work and dedication, I may very well have ended up in jail or worse. If I am ever asked to recommend a lawyer, my recommendation will, without a doubt, be Attorney Reis.

– F.S.

Attorney Reis represented me in court regarding an Aggravated DWI. He was extremely helpful and mindful of my case as this was certainly not his first. He is very strategic and knows his cases well, and is also a very nice guy. Attorney Reis is extremely easy to talk to and is very good at picking out important details that can make a huge difference. Very recommended to anyone who is in need of help even when it looks like there isn’t much in your favor!

– C.E.

James Reis has represented me several times in the past decade on various felony level charges. I was more than satisfied with his representation from arraignment and bail hearing to the conclusion of the case. I was always kept up-to-date on everything. I highly recommend him.

– B.M.

I was assisted by attorney James Reis during a tumultuous and scary time in my life. His shining professionalism and due diligence put my nerves to ease and left me feeling well taken care of. Attorney Reis navigated the complexities and obstacles that arose with precision and persistence and I couldn't have been happier with who was representing me and the eventual outcome of my case.
