I respect this man for his actions in his personal life.

Many people have the ability to turn things around and let the ego go. That's what this man is about. No ego just the facts.

Certain police detectives use trickery to convict innocent people. Leaving them with a life in despair broken
jobless or on jail for a while. Just ask some of those men in Brookhaven what it is like

Keahon sounds like a low life bum himself. The fact that he himself caused a terrible car accident many years ago because he was drunk which seriously injured a doctor says it all. He had a very light sentence which was quite unfair. That to me is a criminal. That is why he understands criminals and relates to them.

Oh please - no ego? All ego. Watch him in court sometime, so full of himself I am surprised there is room for a brain!

I have great admiration for criminal defense attorneys. Everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, but the accused rarely receive that presumption. Through his work, Bill Keahon protects our rights and for that I thank him.

Good for you, Keahon--but stay humble. Arrogance and ego is poisonous. We need good defense attorneys, everyone deserves a defense, but be careful with the ego and omnipotence.

I'm a typical newsday reader. I hate defense attorneys. Why are the accused entitled to a fair trial? This is America after all. Why don't they just go straight to the gas chamber after they're caught shoplifting? Rights? If a police officer says something, it must be true- they where blue uniforms after all. Blah blah blah...

How about interviewing the doctor he nearly killed? Did that guy ever get his life back?

Mr. Keahon has an incredible repuation due to his prior positions as D.A. and Prosecutor. He came highly recommended and of course, charged a hefty fee. We expected so much from him, not just because of his fees but also his repuation. Well, I think we may have made a mistake. At this point, we could have used a legal aide attorney for no money and gotten the same results, as Mr. Keahon has fallen quite short of our expectations. He NEVER, EVER returns a phone call and when he does, he seems to have no idea what the conversation about and often seems annoyed to be bothered. I think he has a HUGE EGO and that is part of the problem plus I think he enjoys the glory of being in the newspaper and once the initial attention fades, so does Mr. Keahon's interest in the case. I have to say we are very disapointed with his professional conduct and would not recommend him to anyone at this point.

I have seen Mr. Keahon at trial defend his client charged with a felony. The result - he won! You hire Mr. Keahon because he know hows to successfully defend a case. When you are in your hour of darkness, he is the man you want by your side. He is an excellent criminal defense attorney, I think his long list of victories dealing with heavy cases allows him to hold his head up with pride, not arrogance, there is a distinct difference.

i actually worked for billy. He is very big headed but he is also a very nice kind man. Obviously the people who talk crap about lawyers havent dealt with one. They all think their gods gift to the world all arrogant and complete a**holes when they need to be. Would you want a pitbull or a kitten in court. He is a pitbull and heis a very good lawyer and a very good man. While working for him i talked to many people who were in jail and Evan Marshall was one of them. He is the sickest creepiest person. I had nightmares about him. His voice alone sent chills down my spine. And as far as linda goes im sure he gave her money with out the bj and the sex just bc that was bill if you needed help hes got you.
