Christopher's knowledge of the appeal process and the appellate court system is state of the art. He has a passion for this type of law like no other attorney in downtown Chicago. So much so, that he has been published in prominent law journals all over the Midwest. He takes time with clients and treats them with respect and dignity, no matter what their case involves. His appeals have resulted in shorter jail sentences and successful judgments in civil rights and employment cases in which Plaintiffs have been wronged.

I totally agreed with the below reviews. Chris is an exceptional attorney.
1. Very Practical: Before I hired him he spent the time with me – he sat down and laid out the situation for me, including possible risks and outcomes. He took the time to review the case and told me that I had a very good chance to win the case based on similar cases he has fought. Although he made it clear to me that the appellate court, on average, only reverses 10% of all of cases. He was fair and did not pressure me to hire him. I am so glad I took that chance because my case was reversed last week and I was in the small percentage of winners!
2. Chris always kept me updated through e-mails, or phone messages. He was professional – prompt and easy to work with.
3. He captures all details in the brief with enormous accuracy – and made compelling arguments that the appellate court reversed every single one.
4. His price was reasonable compared to other attorneys. He set a price after he reviews the case and gave me a few days to think about it.
Chris is absolutely 100% above the board and very professional! I would recommend Chris to any of my friends that would need legal help. I do not trust easily, since I worked before with more than dozen of attorneys that I was not happy with, but Chris definitely has my trust, he is straight forward and honest which is very rare these days – he is wonderful!!!!

My case was so terribly handled within the court system that I had lost all hope. Mr. Keleher's team captured this absurdity within their written appeal, with amazing accuracy. They were able to see and articulate what no other party associated with my case acknowledged. Regardless of the outcome of my appeal, this law firm did its job well.

I would recommend Mr. Keleher. Based on my past experiences in business and accounting law, as well as with general law questions, he always he multiple options and informed, experienced solutions that helped me make a more informed decision. Please feel free to ask him anything that pertains to his specialty or general questions, Im sure his education and experience can provide a specific number of choices.
