Thank you Judge Keefe for mediating a dispute with a former employer of mine. This was a difficult time for me and the result was more than I expected. I highly recommend!
We recently used Judge Keefe for a mediation in a complex case in which parties came from around the country. It was an exercise in futility. Judge Keefe could not have shown less interest. He came nowhere near living up to his reputation. I would never use him again or recommend him to anyone.
I hired this firm, Keefe Bartels. This firm switched lawyers on me 3 times. They refused to communicate, and did not contact me as promised. The day of trial I was refused a jury trial I was promised. The day of trial he told me he would not use my witness and said "You know your witness and the judge will look unfavorably on him." This of course makes no sense. Without a witness I could not win my case. Evidence was not presented since Sullivan lost my witness evidence and evidence relating to my valuations. The judge said the Court could not award damages since Sullivan did not include bailment. I lost over $100,000 in property. They charged me $57,000 for a $7,500 judgment vacated. Now they are suing me!
Nowhere will you find the level of professionalism and excellence practiced by Judge John Keefe. He is outstanding. He put my family at ease in dealing with our mediation and exceeded our expectations with the outcome. I would recommend him to anyone seeking mediation or council.
