Paralegal: Jennifer Martin


Keith Stroud is a 25+ year veteran of the practice of law. Keith supports businesses in the Triad, spouses going through a separation and divorce, individuals and couples through estate planning, executors and administrators handling the estate of a loved one, and seniors and their family members in long-term care and asset protection matters. He provides a straightforward and comprehensive approach to legal representation, and offers unique solutions designed to meet the goals of his clients.

While Keith’s practice is structured to help his clients avoid litigation, he is first and foremost a trial lawyer. His civil and past criminal courtroom experience has uniquely qualified him to consider most every angle, contract loophole, and legal protection available to help his clients avoid the pitfalls that lead to disputes.

Keith understands the concern and discomfort his clients have when considering the types of law he practices. Planning for long term illness and death, going through a separation and divorce, avoiding business disputes that lead to loss of revenue, and the trepidation that surrounds costly and time-consuming litigation, can all cause unnatural states of stress. Keith and his partner, Eleanor Panetti, have created a professional and secure environment, with caring, personal service at its foundation.
