About Me

I have been practicing law for over 25 years and I am a co-managing partner at Keefe Bartels Clark. I understand the difficult task of selecting the right attorney to fight for you or your loved one's legal rights.  We take great pride in providing personalized, compassionate, and aggressive legal representation to our clients. Our attorneys are designated Certified Civil Trial Attorneys by the New Jersey Supreme Court based on our knowledge and experience in handling civil matters.  For your convenience, we maintain offices throughout New Jersey in Red Bank, New Brunswick, Newark, and Edison.

If you have suffered a personal injury due to any type of accident or asbestos exposure, you have a legal right to compensation for the injuries, losses, and expenses you have incurred.
