Attorney Keith N. Evra
Associate at Stoddard Firm
Keith was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He attended the University of Georgia where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice in 2006. After college, Keith returned home and continued his education at Georgia State University College of Law where he obtained his law degree in 2010. During school in both Athens and Atlanta, he gained valuable experience with several prestigious internships, including the Athens-Clarke County Public Defender Office, Office of the Georgia Capital Defender, and DeKalb County Public Defender Office.
Once he became a member of the State Bar of Georgia in 2010, Keith devoted his first five years of practice at a boutique firm representing clients often charged with very serious criminal offenses. Some of those cases eventually evolved into major civil cases recovering large settlements on behalf of those who were innocently accused of crimes they did not commit. With this same passion, Keith joined The Stoddard Firm in order to continue that battle exclusively by recovering damages on behalf of those that are wronged by others.
Keith is admitted to practice in all state of Georgia Courts, including the Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court. In addition, he is admitted to practice in the federal jurisdictions of the Northern District and Middle District of Georgia. Keith has been a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association since 2016.
Keith is trained in personal injury and criminal litigation with years of trial experience in both areas. He has proudly represented veterans, doctors, best-selling authors, students, police officers, and judges.
Keith is a firm believer in this philosophy instilled in him by his parents: “Some succeed because they are destined to, but most succeed because they are determined to.” Keith is determined and has a vested interest in making sure bad people and companies are held accountable to the citizens of Georgia when they knowingly make bad choices. In his pursuit of justice for those who have been wronged, Keith has helped recover millions of dollars for his clients.
Like all attorneys at The Stoddard Firm, Keith specializes in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. Frequently, these claims include representing family members of those killed when commercial property owners fail to provide reasonable and appropriate security for their tenants and guests in face of past crime. Keith also devotes a large portion of his practice to individuals who suffer unnecessary injury as a result of defective products, negligently maintained property, and careless drivers.
Outside of his legal practice, Keith is happily married to Christina Homer Evra, and he is the proud father of Ansley Catherine Evra (born 2021). Keith enjoys playing ALTA Tennis, hiking, traveling, attending Braves, Atlanta United, Falcons, and UGA sporting events – especially UGA football games. He proudly and regularly donates to local hospitals like Grady and Piedmont, and charities such as the American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, and (at his wife’s urging) Rescue Cats, Inc.
