Keith Fitzgerald is the associate lawyer for Hogue & Hogue. Keith is a 2010 graduate of Mercer University's Walter F. George School of Law, where he also received the Certificate in Advanced Legal Writing, Research, and Drafting. While a law student, he clerked with a solo attorney in Macon, where he discovered his passion for helping people during difficult and trying times in their lives. This led him directly to the field of criminal defense, as there are no more difficult and trying times for people than when facing the full weight of the criminal justice system. Keith is proud to call himself a criminal defense lawyer.

Law is a second career for Keith. Before becoming a lawyer, Keith was a professional trombonist in the United States Air Force for nine years. During his musical career, Keith traveled the world–including Japan, Korea, Australia, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Singapore, and Thailand as well as the eastern United States–performing jazz and classical concerts as a musical ambassador of the United States. His experience on stage as a performer led him to his law career. In effect, he traded the audience at a concert hall for twelve citizens in a jury box; musical notes in a symphony instead became words in a closing argument.

Keith is a member of the Georgia Association Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Georgia and Macon Bar Associations. He practices in Federal and State courts in the central Georgia region, and handles every type of criminal case. Currently, one of Keith's main focuses in the firm is DUI defense. Keith is also a graduate of the William “Bill” Daniel Trial Advocacy program.

Keith is married to Betsy Fitzgerald, who is the Executive Director of the Grand Opera House in Macon.
