Upon graduation from law school, I served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Marina Corodemus, J.S.C. in the Superior Court, Middlesex County.  During my  clerkship, I assisted Judge Corodemus in the centralized management of mass tort and toxic tort litigation, including tobacco, diet drugs, and breast implants. Since joining the Keefe Law Firm, I have worked within the Firm’s core practice areas, including personal injury, wrongful death, consumer fraud, toxic tort, mass tort and class action litigation.

Very Pleased and Satisfied
I contacted Keefe Bartels after my accident and was assigned to Mr. Sullivan. He went to work for me right away and kept me informed of the process. He is very knowledgeable, competent and overall a great communicator. Always answered my questions and called back when I left a msge or emailed him. I feel he really cared about the situation and was very interested in how I was feeling and doing. I recommend Mr. Sullivans services without hesitation.

Curto vs. Briarwood Care and Rehabilitaton Facility
Mr. Sullivan was very competent and thorough in pursuing a case of Wrongful Death in the case of my brother, Frank Curto who was a patient at the Briarwood Care Facility when he passed away on January 24, 2010 after being neglected by the staff while he cried out repeatedly for help. He was 62 and mentally and physically disabled, totally dependent on the staff.
