About me

I was born and raised here in Goldsboro. I spent many non-school days as a child and as a young man going to court with my dad in the Wayne County Court House. I thank God I had the opportunity to see some brilliant passionate lawyers at such a young age. Deep down, I always knew that I would be here later in life defending people accused of crimes.


When I’m not working, I try to spend as much time as possible making contacts in amateur radio. I am a proficient Morse Code operator and I like to go out in desolate places where I run a very low powered radio and talk to other people thousands of miles away. I try to participate in several contests every year. Electronics and radio communication have always been obsessions. I had to be a lawyer because I was not intelligent enough to be an electrical engineer and all the jobs at sea as a ship’s radioman were phased out by the time I grew up! My call sign is KB4IRR, and that has been my call sign since my very first license at the age of 14.


I’m also a frustrated historian. It was on that career path where I figured out I belonged in law school. I still spend huge amounts of time trying to learn and understand where we’ve been and where we’re heading as a people. Truth is not cheap at all but we pay more for it in time than we do in money.


My first love is Jesus Christ, who made me acceptable before God Almighty by His death, burial, resurrection, and continued advocacy in heaven. Even though I work in an adversarial system, I want Him honored by what I do and how I do it. It was He who put the love for justice and mercy in me and it is He who will be the ultimate Judge in that court of no appeal.

Customer Reviews

Mr. Rouse did an excellent job for my son, representing him on a speeding ticket. He took care of every detail and kept in touch with us. I had every confidence in him and he was kind, knew the law and followed up with us with good news! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone in the Goldsboro area.

We called Mr. Rouse about a speeding ticket in Duplin county. He called back right away and consulted with me about the ticket. He was extremely honest and informative. He then put everything we talked about in an email. His price was fair and he got us a great deal. No points on driving record or insurance and no driving school. He is professional and it was a pleasure working with him.

Keith Rouse gave me a free consultation regarding my case and was very honest about the outcome and what to expect (better than the kind you pay for). I was put at ease and understood the possible results of my case. He was very honest about what he could do regarding my case (moving/traffic related) and was very fair. I have to say that I was EXTREMELY pleased with the results of my case and would highly recommend.

Mr. Rouse did an excellent job on my case. He interviewed me several times and told me what I could likely expect. We were in court twice; the first time he had the case continued because he thought I would not get a fair shake. The second time he made a plea agreement and I came out a real happy client. He did a lot of research work on my case; so I would recommend him to anyone!

Keith was great right from the first call. He handled an out of state speeding ticket for me with success. He knew exactly how to handle the situation and I felt confident in his abilities right from the get-go.

I contacted Keith after receiving a citation for speeding, being out of state, I was not familiar with local laws. Keith sat down with me in person after a walk in no appointment. We chatted till about 6pm about the case and options including the competition in town. I chose Keith based on his attention to detail and thorough review of my case. This was not typical of the Attorneys I visited under the same citation for advice. In fact Keith was the only one that sat down face to face with me in his office. He explained his plan concurrent with my requests and was prepared to continue if necessary to get desired results. Keith also promptly returned my calls and was always available pre-hearing. He also advised me on what I should expect the day of the hearing should I chose to show. I elected to accompanied Keith to court and he arrived on time and prepared. He got my Citation reduced to a non moving violation with ease. If you have a traffic case in Wayne County this Lawyer is an excellent choice, you will not second guess your decision. For anyone out of state, you do not have to worry about Keith not showing for a hearing date.

Recently a traffic matter was handled for me by Keith Rouse… Keith was efficient, understanding and very easy to work with…I would certainly ask Keith for assistance again should the occasion arise. And, I would certainly recommend him to anyone else who might need legal assistance…Thank you for your attention… Eleanor

This gentleman seems like such a mild mannered fellow, VERY polite, very soft spoken. When he cross examined the person that had me in court, he turned into a lion and had the man running in circles. I am so impressed. I would use Mr. Rouse for anything pertaining to legal matters. Famile members have used his father for a matter and were also very happy with the results. Mr. Keith is absolutely wonderful, and I would recommend him with NO reservations!
