About Keith Family Law

Heather C. Keith, Esq.

“ I like the way Heather works.She was very professional and caring.I would recommend her to anyone who needs help.I didn’t have to worry about anything.”
Going through a divorce is possibly the most difficult thing that I had to go through in my life thus far. Family court is inefficient and unjust. Without the right attorney besides you, it can be a difficult journey that can have lifetime consequences . Heather Keith was god sent direct and to... the point, with no nonsense assessment of my situation. Gave me good advice that helped me avoid useless and expensive litigation. Don't let your emotions get the best of you. I highly recommend her.read more
Lawyers often get a bad rap for being heartless and cold. In my experience with Heather Keith she is direct opposite of that. Yes you pay her to take care of your legal issues, which by the way she does with a great deal of skill, but you don't pay her to care about you as a human. This is where... Heather sets herself apart. Divorce is hard and emotional. Heather helps guide you through the process with strength and support. Even when she is telling you unpleasant truths about your situation it always feels as if she understands all of your concerns. I cannot state more strongly how talented and human this woman is. In two words: hire her.read more
My ex-his band and I were trying to ger divorced at the end of 2018 because of the changing tax laws and because the of changes being made in the alimony formula as well. Heather and her team took my case in early December and got the job done before the end of the year. Heather was very... professional and personable and an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Keith Family Law to anyone who needs legal counsel and doesn’t know where to start.read more
I have worked with Heather on and off for years and couldn't have asked for someone better to be in my corner. Heather and the entire staff at Keith Family Law Group made what I was going through much easier. Heather has always answered any questions I had, she is honest and doesn't beat around the... bush. She's fantastic and I'm very grateful I found her!read more
Ms. Velazquez was assigned to our family visitation case in mid January 2019. She swiftly reviewed our case file, set up a settlement conference, and finalized our demands with the New Jersey court by the end of February. Ms. Velazquez is a professional who is committed and competent in her... responsibilities. We are eternally grateful for her urgency with our family matter.read more

“Heather was on top of every single detail about my case and my situation. She answered all of my questions no matter how many of them I asked or whatever time it was during the day, and she was also sure to follow up and check in to see if I had any other questions or concerns. I couldn’t have asked for someone better to get me through a hard time.”
K. P.

“Not only did Ms. Keith help me resolve my case (in my favor) but she also helped me understand what I needed to do for myself and for my child to keep our lives moving forward in a positive direction. I would highly recommend Ms. Keith to anyone!”
