About me

James T. Keleher is a graduate of the John Marshall Law School, where he was awarded the CALI Award for scholastic excellence, named to the Dean’s list, and was nominated as a Who’s Who Among Students In American Universities and Colleges. James was also a member of the International Legal Fraternity of Phi Delta Phi.


James T. Keleher started his career at Conniff Law Offices as a Law Clerk in May 2005. He worked at Conniff Law Offices throughout his years at the John Marshall Law School and joined the firm as an associate upon his graduation.


Because James was interested in family law prior to entering law school, he was able to focus exclusively on family law during his time at the John Marshall Law School. He also studied negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and other methods of alternative dispute resolution which have given him a well-rounded understanding of the divorce process both in and out of the court room. James has a unique combination of knowledge and interpersonal skills that make him an exceptional family law attorney.
