about Lori Keeton

For over two decades, Lori Keeton has advocated for police officers and other municipal employees both in and out of the courtroom.  She also assists entrepreneurs with their business needs, including the development and implementation of risk management strategies so they can focus on running their businesses.

While her legal career may have started twenty-five years ago, her passion for justice was evident much earlier.  After 12-year-old Keeton was dissatisfied with the lack of results she obtained from the Get Him System, she wrote a passionate “demand letter” detailing the company’s “negligence” and her request for a refund.  It is not the typical method most pre-teens would choose to handle dissatisfaction with a product, and it made it starkly clear to those who witnessed it that Keeton was destined for a legal career.  (By the way, she got a full refund, including the rush postage!)

Thirty-plus years later, Lori brings that same determination to her work as she honors her mission:  to be a trusted resource, partner and ally throughout the litigation process.

During her career, Keeton has received numerous awards and honors.   She has been selected for inclusion in the 2017-2024 editions of Business North Carolina’s “Legal Elite,” a listing of the state’s top lawyers, in the field of Litigation., She was named to the North Carolina Super Lawyers list in the field of Litigation (2017-2024) and was selected by her peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© in the areas of Municipal Law and Municipal Litigation in 2018-2024. 

Keeton was also named one of the 50 Most Influential Women by the Mecklenburg Times and has been recognized as a Leader in the Law by North Carolina Lawyer’s WeeklyMs. Keeton was also named a Top 50: Women North Carolina Super Lawyers in 2022-2024.

Keeton is also active in the community.  She is currently serving as a member of the Novant Health Cancer Institute Advisory Council and is an active member of the Rotary Club of Charlotte serving on its Social and Photography committees.

She considers her faith in God to be the cornerstone of her success in every aspect of her life.

She formed Law Offices of Lori Keeton in 2017.  The firm is certified as a North Carolina Historically Underutilized Business, a City of Charlotte Small Business Enterprise and a City of Charlotte Women Business Enterprise.
