At Keith & Lorfing, we serve clients in both criminal defense and personal injury 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 attorney is also not just another ordinary attorney but a special one. Attorney Russell Lorfing believes in taking an informal approach with every criminal defense client that is intended to build a strong personal relationship. That relationship is meant to help you overcome not only your legal obstacles but your life obstacles as well. We aim to not only to 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.

Representing Clients in Personal Injury Matters

At Keith & Lorfing, our pursuit of justice doesn’t end with criminal defense. We also advocate for plaintiffs in personal injury matters. If you suffered an injury that someone else caused and are now facing financial repercussions, we can help you fight for fair and just compensation.

No one should be burdened by overwhelming medical debt, lost wages, or losing their ability to work. Unfortunately, this can happen when an accident caused by another person’s negligence or wrongful acts results in severe injury. Our attorneys at Keith & Lorfing want you to know that we can help you fight for what you need to move forward.

We can represent clients in personal injury matters that include the following:

Trucking Accidents

Workplace Accidents (especially those on oil rigs)

We can also represent the families in wrongful death actions after a beloved member of their family was taken from them by another person or entity’s negligence or recklessness.

Should you have another kind of personal injury claim and you’re looking for help from dedicated advocates, don’t hesitate to reach out to Keith & Lorfing. By learning more about our firm’s complete capabilities and how we fight for our clients, you can have all the information you need to understand how we can help.

  • 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.

Why Choose Us for Your Criminal Defense?

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.

This includes handling 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.

He is the only former federal prosecutor practicing criminal defense in the Abilene, Lubbock, San Angelo, and Amarillo areas and only one of three such prosecutors practicing in all of West Texas.
