I had to change my review, because of the fact the these attorneys are the best attorneys a person could ask for they keep you informed step be step they make sure they do their job to the fullest of their abilities and their defense is amazing . . I wouldn’t use any other attorney ever if your in Pittsburgh or some where they represent and you need legal counsel I highly recommend that you call their office and no one else.

Thomas M. McKinley is a defense attorney that is a force to which I’ve never seen before and have nothing but love and respect for him and everyone else in the office of Ketchel Law office.

I thank all of you and appreciate everything you do.

This is the globe trotter team of the attorney world.

Anyone in Pittsburgh that needs a criminal defense attorney I stand by this office and their ability to provide the best quality support you could ask for and will never let you down.

My husband and I just left the courthouse. We had all of our evidence Presented to the attorney. From the very first day he has been on our side. Everything we stated to him and all the questions we didn’t have the answers to regarding our case. He got us our answers and helped proved the other party was lying.

I recommend Thomas M. McKinley, for anyone who is not only seeking the truth but to also get your life back. Mr. McKinley we thank you very much! Your service was above and beyond!

I was blessed to have an attorney who got the results I was aspiring to.. Thank you Thomas McKinley and your team at the law firm of Justin Ketchel. I was referred to Justin Ketchel legal services via my original attorney from Blair county.. He put me into a transition due to his worries that he may not be as familiar with the Allegheny County court DAs and prosecutors, thus he pointed me and my court case into the capable hands of one of Justin Ketchel’s attorneys, Thomas M. McKinley. Initially, I had skepticism regarding whether this was a wise decision, however I now look back onto this decision as a blessing.

Thomas McKinley had, essentially, guided me through the entire process with confidence and reassurance for my anxieties. Thomas was well within his comfort zone at the Allegheny Courthouse and was adept at navigating my case into the appropriate Judges domain, all while adapting to the changes that accompanied the processes during the COVID pandemic. The legal fees for the services I required were very reasonable and I would recommend Thomas McKinley and the Law Firm of Justin Ketchel to anybody who is in need of an attorney who can handle their legal matters with confidence and skill.

Thanks again Thomas McKinley and the team at Justin Ketchel legal services.

Attorney Anthony Jackson was fantastic. These guys are the real deal – they walked me through everything, made me feel comfortable and really did a fantastic job overall. I hope to never need to use them again but highly recommend them to anyone in need of a defense attorney.

Very reasonable pricing, no nickel and diming and you’ll get phenomenal representation from these guys!

My name is Flo; I am a reality tv star! I hired Anthony Jackson to handle my case, he is incredible! Him and Justin treated me with respect and dignity! We all make mistakes! And they got that mistake handled with no issue!

They are incredible! I love humble lawyers, and the pricing was great, they constantly kept in touch assuring me everything would be ok, and my case went from one big mess with another firm to all handled once I turned it over to them! They are incredible I posted for everyone to call on them, they treat people like a person not a case! I’m grateful!

Was in a tough legal situation and Justin Ketchel and his team helped me get the case outcome I was hoping for and i would recommend them for any case regardless of the charge.

Highly Recommend. I did extensive research before choosing my attorney. I chose Justin Ketchel LLC after seeing the positive testimonials and reviews. They were all extremely professional throughout the process, very prepared and we got the best possible outcome for my situation.

The specific attorney who represented me was Thomas McKinley, couldn’t be happier with him and the work he did for me. I also want to note that they reached back out to me after a recent Supreme Court ruling and are actively fighting to get my charges reduced.

*Also shout out to Barb who is the receptionist she’s really cool.

Thanks guys!

The Law Office of Justin Ketchel is a professional, knowledgeable and understanding law practice. They were very helpful and understanding to my plight.

Anthony Jackson was assigned to my case and I could not be more pleased with his knowledge and tenacity to fight for me. His professional demeanor was bar none in the court room but he was personable and understanding while we talked. If you find yourself in need of a lawyer I highly recommend Anthony Jackson.
