Thomas Q. Keefe, III

No lawyer can guarantee a result. But every lawyer can, and should, promise his clients two things: That he will always tell them the truth, and that they will always receive his best effort. These two principles form the foundation of Tom Keefe III’s practice.

That practice is successful because Mr. Keefe is not afraid to go to trial. In the courtroom, he has earned a reputation for both fierce and creative advocacy, underscored by thorough preparation. A graduate of Boston College and St. Louis University School of Law, he has spoken at various schools, including SWIC and Webster University, been published by the Illinois State Bar Association, and serves as a chapter author for the ILTLA Medical Malpractice Notebook. But his passion lies in criminal defense.

The January 2014 Illinois Super Lawyers magazine has named Tom, III one of the top 50 “Rising Stars” for Criminal Defense in Illinois.

Tom Keefe does not just represent the accused — he fights for them, and he plays to win.
