Mr. O’Keeffe was raised and completed his schooling in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He is a partner at Liberty Law. He is a member of the Alberta and Northwest Territories law societies and handles cases throughout western Canada. He articled to the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal in 1995 before joining Liberty Law in 1996.
Mr. O’Keeffe focuses the majority of his practice on defending individuals accused of serious sexual offences, including sexual assault, sexual interference, sexual exploitation, child pornography offenses and internet luring. There are a surprising number of false allegations leading to charges of this nature. Experience and careful preparation are essential to an effective defence against such allegations.
He has extensive experience in conducting jury trials. The right to a trial by jury is a valuable protection for the individual and one that Mr. O’Keeffe believes is too often given up by people facing serious charges without adequate consideration.
Mr. O’Keeffe is an experienced Charter of Rights litigator and lectures annually at the University of Alberta law school on how to prepare and present Charter of Rights defences to the court.
He is affiliated with Pro Bono Law Alberta and represents those without the financial means to retain a lawyer on a pro bono basis in select cases.
