Anybody considering retaining using JUDGE JOHN E. KEEFE SR. should first read the following. He and his firm charged me $19, 000 to vacate a $7, 500 judgment, and to initiate a counterclaim. Their counterclaim was invalid. He and his son, and others refused to communicate with me after I paid them their exorbitant fees. To overcharge someone is the same as stealing. People who steal are thieves. Keefe is dishonest, arrogant, and unethical. I was offered an apology by Keefe for the way I was treated only after I began posting reviews. He said he would refund my wasted fees paid to him, That was a year ago. Once again he misled me and lied. This firm cares only about money, not about their clients.

An overview is as follows:

I was a victim of consumer fraud. The company/person refused to return my property to me, and they sued me for $7, 500. I hired Keefe/Bartels to vacate the judgment, and to counterclaim for the value of my property. I had a witness who was deposed for 9 hours. The firm switched lawyers on me 3 times, and in the transition lost important evidence, both from my witness, and also important prices realized related to the valuation of my property.
Keefe switched lawyers on me 3 times. He lost important evidence from my witness, and also regarding my valuations. The day of trial I was refused a jury trial as promised. The day of trial I was told they would not use my witness "because you know your witness and the judge will look unfavorable on it." I could not win my case without any witness. The judge said I should have had a witness. He said the Court could not award damages since my claim did not include bailment. His counterclaim was worthless. I lost $126, 000 in property and I was charged $19, 000 to get a $7, 500 judgment vacated, in addition to thousands of dollars in other legal expenses.

I feel Keefe Bartels either never cared about winning my case, or intentionally lost it rather than returning my fees to me, and subjecting themselves to immediate malpractice claims.
.
His counterclaim was worthless. According to the Judge, the Court could not award any damages since my counterclaim neglected to include bailment, and I should have presented a witness, which of course I had.
