Practice Areas & Expertise

At Jeff Keel PA, we specialize in DUI, BUI, traffic offenses, probation violations, and criminal defense.  A DUI and traffic specialist, I have successfully handled over 5,500 cases, and has extensive knowledge of all aspects of Florida DUI and traffic law.  I will fight for your rights whether you are a Florida resident or an out-of-state visitor to make sure you get the best possible result in your case.

DUI Law

A DUI expert with 20 years experience, I understand every aspect of a DUI case, and I know how to get you the best possible result.  I will build a solid DUI defense by evaluating the legality of your traffic stop, the accuracy of the breathalyer, and the admissibility of road-side sobriety tests, the results of which are often skewed.  I know how to successfully challenge the state's evidence, and keep you from a conviction.  In the event of a conviction, I will fight to minimize your penalties and give you the best chance to avoid hefty fines, license suspension, vehicle impoundment, and jail time.

If you have been arrested for DUI, you must act within 10 days to preserve your driving privileges. I represent clients at administrative Formal Review Hearings before the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles.

 

Traffic Violations

I represent Florida residents, commercial drivers, and out-of-state drivers who have received traffic tickets in Florida for violations ranging from speeding, reckless driving, failure to stop, racing, hit and run, "move over" law violations, and driving with a suspended license. Paying a traffic ticket is an admission of guilt that can actually result in points on, or suspension of your driver's license and increased auto insurance rates in addition to the fines assessed for the violation itself.

 

Probation Violations

My firm provides experienced defense in probation violation hearings for people who have been rearrested for failure to meet conditions of their probation including payment of fines, failure to attend community service, failure to complete substance abuse or anger management counseling and other noncompliance with probation terms.
