Bradley Keffer received his undergraduate degree from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. After graduating with honors, Bradley attended Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis. While in law school, Bradley served as an intern for two years at the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Indiana (Civil and Criminal Divisions). He also completed externships with the Marion County Superior Courts, the Indiana Court of Appeals, the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office (Death Penalty Division), the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Office of the Governor of the State of Indiana.

Bradley began his legal career serving as a deputy prosecuting attorney in both Marion County (Indianapolis) and Tippecanoe County (Lafayette). As a deputy prosecutor in Tippecanoe County, Bradley led the Fatal Alcohol Crash Team (FACT), served as the lead prosecutor assigned to the Tippecanoe County’s Title 9 (BMV Court), and conducted major felony prosecutions for offenses ranging from Forgery to Homicide to Narcotics Manufacturing and Dealing.

As a deputy prosecutor in Marion County, Bradley led its Fatal Alcohol Crash Team (FACT) where he was responsible for investigating and prosecuting DUI and OVWI cases involving death or serious bodily injury. In addition to prosecuting all types of misdemeanor and felony offenses, Bradley focused on fatality and serious bodily injury Hit & Run cases, and complex White Collar crimes.

Bradley was also responsible for reviewing and monitoring sobriety checkpoints and training law enforcement officers in DUI investigations, traffic stops, DUI law, administering sobriety checkpoints, and search and seizure. In his time as a prosecutor, Bradley has tried over twenty-five jury trial and countless bench trials, and provided training to other prosecutors on DUI law, DUI prosecution, and jury selection. He has also received specific training in accident investigation/reconstruction by the Indianapolis Police Department as well as training by the United States Secret Service on the presentation of computer forensic evidence in the courtroom.

Now, Bradley represents clients in a wide array of legal matters ranging from administrative license matters to select family law matters. While Bradley’s primary focus is criminal law and criminal-related litigation, he oversees a 100% litigation-focused practice. As a result, Bradley has represented clients in both complex litigation and high profile matters in both State and Federal courts. Moreover, Bradley has represented clients who have been targets of investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), state and local law enforcement, the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office Grand Jury Division, the Office of the Indiana Secretary of State, the Office of the Indiana Attorney General, the Department of Child Services, as well as other state and federal administrative agencies.
