Best Experience to Date with a Lawyer
Keith was introduced to me by a friend when I was having serious licensing issues with the City of Chicago. Three other lawyers had failed to resolve my problem. Keith not only fixed the problem on the first try, but the experience was my best to date with communicating and dealing with attorneys. He is very upfront and available for personal service, took the time to explain all the details and has become a friend as well as my lawyer. Keith is very approachable, honest, genuine, reliable and very fairly priced for proven results time after time.

Mr. Keith Keogh is the best litigator in Chicagoland. I've hired may before him and now no one can take his place.
Keith is the knowledgeable and aggressive attorney you have been looking for. I am absolutely happy to recommend to everyone the Law Firm of Mr. Keith J. Keogh. For over 30 years I've hired different attorney's for different projects and more than a few lawsuits. Mr. Keogh's office contacted me and asked if I would leave a comment about his Law Firm here on this page for you and I am happy to do so for him. Mr. Keogh is certainly a fortune 500 type of attorney, meaning that his professionalism, knowledge, trustworthiness and ability surpass most attorneys you will find and any attorney I have ever meet. I meet Mr. Keogh when I needed to file a lawsuit against a larger well known Chicago based company in about 2004. This company would be hard to beat in court as it has almost limitless finical resources at it's disposal. I needed attorney that had a proven record of winning. I read the journals and then followed up on what I read for about a month. In my first meeting with Mr. Keogh he grasped the various aspects and many details of my case easily. He outlined for me the merits of my case. I was also interviewing Mr. Keogh. His professionalism was apparent, he told me of extensive background in various types of litigation. I asked him to take my case, he did, he kept me informed and he negotiated hard with the other side. I am a very very satisfied client. My personal recommendation to you is If you have the opportunity to choose a attorney, a litigator, you'll find none better than Mr. Keith J. Keogh. Mr. James Iverson Chicago, Il.
