    Thanks Judge Keefe!

    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!

    Extremely disappointing mediator

    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.

    John E Keefe Sr’s response: “I have devoted a great deal of my professional life to earn the reputation that apparently motivated the reviewer to engage me on that basis. I assume that the reviewer is an attorney since I enter into mediation retainers only with attorneys. I regret that the reviewer perceived that I was disinterested because that is certainly not the case in any matter that I mediate. I note, parenthetically, that there was no complaint that I was unprepared for the mediation. I have no idea what case is the subject matter of the post since I mediate an average of 12 cases a month. Even if I was aware of the matter involved, however, both State and Federal confidentiality rules pertaining to the mediation would prevent a discussion of the details of the mediation in an open forum such as this. Even the arbitration remedy afforded by Avvo would result in breach of the confidentiality rules of mediation, as the reviewer must know. However, as one professional to another, I am willing to discuss the matter further with the reviewer if he/she so desires, since I would be interested to understand whatever I either said or did that led this reviewer to the perception of disinterest.”

    Very very poor service, lost evidence, etc.

    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!

    Judge Keefe is the very best

    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.
