We were very pleased with the attention and excellent customer service that Jay provided to us. Our case was small but he was extremely attentive and always quick to respond. We quickly developed a good rapport and felt we could trust his advice. If we were to need representation in the future we would call Jay. I have also recommended the firm to friends.

I had the good fortune to work with Mr. O'Keeffe closely over the last several years in a very complex real estate matter involving the location of a high-voltage power line across a residential subdivision. The dispute involved state laws and regulations, local subdivision ordinances and entitlements, and the determination of business damages to future development. The case was highly unique in that the subdivision property across which the power line was to be located was entitled to development while not yet developed.
Mr. O'Keeffe combined and synthesized these details into a world-class briefing that laid out the case as clearly as one could hope for. The facts were presented, arguments based on governmental actions and entitlements made, and ultimately a conclusion reached that was easily understood and provided the strongest arguments to our benefit in a well-written and well-thought out way. I was amazed at how clearly the law was laid out and the intelligent work before us.
Suffice to say, one week before trial the power company agreed to a settlement that far exceed my expectations. Mr. O'Keeffe's work speaks for itself in that sense, and I could not have been more pleased with the results. Mr. O'Keeffe is an incredibly intelligent, thoughtful and well-spoken attorney and the great success we had in our case was a direct result of his skill and ability to take complex matters and lay them out in a powerful and easily-understandable format.
I would encourage anyone looking for an outstanding appellate or business litigation lawyer to consult with Mr. O'Keeffe. His intelligence, strong communications skills, ethical and friendly approach put me at ease during our case and ultimately resulted in a settlement greater than hoped for.
