Criminal Defense Attorneys in Abilene

Defending the Rights of the Accused Throughout West Texas

Your choice of an attorney to represent you in your criminal defense case is a very critical one. The experience, insight, skills, and work ethic that your attorney has can make the difference in how your case is resolved. It can impact whether you land up in jail or prison or go free. This basic rule holds true in all professions, but is crucial when your freedom, future, reputation, livelihood, and more is on the line. At Keith & Lorfing, we understand that. It is why we never hold back from putting in the time, attention to detail, and the use of all our skills on behalf of our clients.

At Keith & Lorfing, we serve clients with genuine care and zealous representation. At our firm, you are not just another “case” but an individual with a very relevant past, present, and future that we take into consideration. Our Abilene criminal defense lawyers have over 60 years of experience in the courtroom that we are ready to put to work for you.

Welcome to the Lorfing Law Firm

Put a Former Federal Prosecutor on Your Side

At Keith and Lorfing, we are the only firm in West Texas that employs three former federal prosecutors. Attorney Russell Lorfing’s outstanding qualifications for taking on your criminal defense case include vast experience as a former state and federal prosecutor. He has handled dozens of trials and hundreds of cases involving both violent and non-violent crimes of the most complex nature including federal cases, fraud, Medicare/Medicaid crimes, political corruption, white collar crimes, and more. Additionally, partner Trey Keith has obtained more “Not Guilty” verdicts than any other attorney in the Big Country. Our clients rest easy knowing that our criminal defense lawyers in Abilene have over six decades of cumulative trial experience. And because so many of our attorneys were former federal prosecutors, we can think like a prosecutor. That ability gives us deep insight into how your state or federal prosecutor will work to convict you and how that can best be countered.

Personalized Representation

Our attorneys believe strongly in building personal relationships with clients. After all, how can you give 100% to a case if you don’t truly know the person you’re representing? It’s not uncommon to find Russell hanging out with clients after work or BBQing at a client’s house on the weekend. The firm even offers a leadership course specifically designed and tailored to the needs of each client. This relational approach to cases is meant to help you overcome not only your legal obstacles but your life obstacles as well. We aim to not only help you fight for the results you need in court, but to help you fight for a better life for yourself and your family afterwards.

  • Russell Lorfing Russell Lorfing

    Russell grew up poor and saw his biological father struggle with addiction and a criminal record. His mother worked two jobs and the graveyard shift to make ends meet. He witnessed first hand the devastating impact drugs and the criminal justice system have on family life. As a young man, he knew he wanted a different life. Through hard work and determination, he became the first person in his family to ever attend and graduate college. Russell is married to Jessica Lorfing, his beautiful wife, and he is the proud father of three amazing boys. He enjoys camping, hiking, and Longhorn football. One of his greatest passions in life is exploring exotic places and adventure travel. He has traveled to over 70 countries, visited all seven wonders of the world, ran a marathon on the Great Wall of China, hiked to the base camp of Mt. Everest, survived the Amazon jungle, swam with sharks in the Pacific Ocean, explored the mountains of Patagonia, and tried walking on water at the Sea of Galilee.
