Excellent Attorney!
Mr. Keegan represented me in a disability discrimination case. He is very professional, knowledgeable, strategic, and he truly cares about his clients. Mr. Keegan was precise when it came to creating a strategy for my case and he kept me informed about every step of the process. I highly recommend Mr. Keegan!

phenomenal attorney--can't recommend enough
I only found Marcus somewhat late in a wrongful termination case, after the previous attorney dropped the ball on several issues. I'm certain if Marcus had been the attorney from the beginning, it would have resulted in a different outcome. He was a tremendous advocate and a consummate professional. Marcus truly cares for his clients and about justice being served.

Knowledgeable and Provides Great Advise
We worked with Marcus to combat a former employee claiming exaggerated wage allegations related to a former manager. Working with Marcus was great and definitely had a positive impact on our ability to fend off these claims.

Thorough and responsive
I found Mr. Keegan to be extremely responsive whenever I sent him a request for information or a random question. His review of my paperwork was thorough and he took the time I needed to understand the details and to ensure there were no issues that could impact me in the future. Once we completed our work, he remained very responsive when I had follow-up questions and he even went above and beyond to help a former colleague. This was very impressive and much appreciated.

Excellent attorney who knows employment law inside out!
Mr. Keegan was extremely helpful when I retained him for a matter with my former employer. Mr. Keegan was forthcoming, and provided excellent advice and assistance on how to navigate this. Because of his efforts, I was able to receive a severance from my former employer, and was able to ensure that they could not adversely impact future employment endeavors. After moving on to a new role with another company, Mr. Keegan even followed up with me to see how I was doing, and to see if I was enjoying my new role. He was extremely personable, which made my unpleasant experience with my former employer more tolerable. I am very happy with the outcome, and would recommend his services to anyone in need of an employment attorney!

Extremely Satisfied
Marcus was very knowledgeable of the laws in place. He was able to read the opposition, which led us to receiving a victorious settlement. At first, I was nervous because the company is one of the largest in the world. He never waivered. He stuck with the law and the facts of my case. We Won!! I highly recommend Marcus Keegan!

Extremely Knowledgeable and Consultative in Employment Law
In the world we live it seems to have become commonplace for anyone to easily make assertions that bring about frivolous lawsuits. Of course legal recourse in some instances is necessary but when you are uncertain of what to do as an employer it is great to have a team like that of Marcus Keegan and the Keegan Law Firm readily available to handle any situation. Marcus has represented me in several employment related claims brought against my corporation and I have been more than pleased with the outcomes. He is extremely knowledgeable of employment related law and practices which makes it easy for a business owner like me to rest well at night knowing that his expertise will safeguard my company by minimizing my exposure to risk through his consultative approach. I highly recommend Marcus Keegan of the Keegan Law Firm, LLC.

Caring & Honest
As the title states, Marcus is an extremely caring and dedicated attorney who puts the needs and best interests of his clients first, while not hesitating to be honest about the possible results. He was highly professional, accessible, and flexible with regard to scheduling (or rescheduling) teleconferences and in-person meetings. Most importantly, Marcus was able to break down legal jargon into laymen's terms, allowing me to better understand my options and potential outcomes. Furthermore, when I was in need of an attorney to assist a family member with a type of law that Marcus does not practice, he provided great referrals for colleagues that he felt would offer the same professionalism and concern for my family's case. Essentially, Marcus is an attorney who truly cares about the well-being and overall satisfaction of his clients, and through his warm personality and integrity you feel that he will not lead you astray and is providing the best legal advise to help resolve the matter thus restoring your peace of mind during what is likely a very difficult time for you and your loved ones.

Great experience

Great Legal Representation that doesn't break the bank
Marcus, Saved us a great deal of money and long term problems with our property issues. We stood to loose 4 properties to fraud if he didn't step in and take control of the situation. He knows how to work with the court and he knows the law. If you are looking for a great lawyer look no further. You don't want to be on the team that looses.

FDCPA
Marcus handled an FDCPA case for me about a year ago. I wasn't familiar with this type of law at all and he explained what the creditors were doing was against the law. I knew that I paid these people and they kept on harassing me....who knew that you can actually get paid for creditors harassing you! Marcus kept me informed at all times. He is a great attorney and I will always recommend him to anyone that needs an attorney.

Employment
Although there are no guarantees when it comes to employment related cases, Mr. Keegan will provide services that will make you feel as if you are a human being and nothing less. My former employer had gone to the distance fabricating a case against me; however, Marcus, took my case because he took the time to not only study the case but I believe he also respected my honesty. In other words, I believe Mr. Keegan will do well in years to come for the people, firm will do very well continuing to appreciate the human aspects of the case. Through his excellent interview and listening skills, he also made good use of the facts and documents that I had collected against my former employer relative to my case. These, coupled with his excellent knowledge of the employment law,. Although, we were unable to move forward with my case. Marcus will provide the ultimate professional services and I would recommend to anyone that may be in need of an excellent attorney.

Endorsement for Marcus Keegan
Marcus Keegan was extremely well versed in the subject matter that pertained to my case. He was also very responsive to questions, easy to talk to, and overall made what was a difficult experience much more tolerant than expected.

Unhelpful in time of need
The initial response via email was quick. After I explained my situation one time I had to explain 2x after. Seemed like this attorney was too busy or just uninterested. Contacted attorney 2 days before a hearing being that I had not heard from him and was told that due to a conflict he was unable to represent. The attorney had no information concerning the exact time of the hearing.

Response from Marcus Keegan February 20, 2015
Thank you for expressing your opinion. We strive to provide exceptional service and by not responding to each of your e-mails I agree that we did not provide you the best service we could have. I apologized to you twice privately and do so again here. However, it should be noted that you never scheduled a consultation with my office (as I suggested that you do after your first e-mail) and you were never a client of the firm.
