Firm Overview

Our firm has been devoted to representing those injured by medical negligence or through personal injury. Our focus on obtaining just compensation for our clients has allowed us to achieve many multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements, including one of the largest medical malpractice verdicts in Montgomery County history. We know and understand how difficult it is when an individual or family member suffers a horrible tragedy or death through the fault of medical professionals. When an individual or family member is injured as a result of medical care, the medical system does not provide answers to their questions. We will get your questions answered.

Personal Injury
Our focus on obtaining just compensation for our clients has allowed us to achieve many multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements, including one of the largest medical malpractice verdicts in Montgomery County history.
We represent individuals and families who have been seriously injured or who have lost their lives as a result of negligence. We are dedicated to serving our clients and representing them in accordance with the highest professional standards. Our attorneys have over 45 years of combined experience in representing individuals and families dealing with the emotional and financial consequences of serious injuries. Please contact us today for a free consultation. We never charge a fee unless we get you a recovery.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

We represent individuals who have been injured as a result of medical negligence or personal injury. It is very rewarding to assist people who have had a terrible physical, emotional, and financial tragedy.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I'm always willing to provide potential clients with direction and pointers on how to potentially resolve their case directly with the negligent party. It has been our experience that negligent medical providers rarely are willing to accept responsibility without extensive litigation. The law for medical negligence cases is extremely complex. As a result, we do recommend that most clients retain counsel to assist them through this difficult legal and emotional process.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

We are willing to coach clients who wish to represent themselves as long as we have a written contract specifically outlining the nature of our role.

Stephen O'Keefe

I was formerly a partner in the firm of Reminger & Reminger, where I led their medical malpractice section from 1997 to 2003. Prior to that, I had worked exclusively in the area of medical malpractice with the law firm of Jacobson, Maynard, Tuschman & Kalur.

My entire career has been devoted to the issue of medical negligence and personal injury. For the first half of my career I represented doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes. This is given me a unique perspective on what it takes to win these types of cases. My entire practice is now devoted to representing individuals and families who have been injured by doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes.

Our experience and focus in the area of medical negligence and personal injuries has led us to be considered to be one of the preeminent medical negligence and personal injury firms in the state. We carefully screen all of our cases through medical literature and leading physician experts in the country. We know that our clients and their families are simply seeking answers to unanswered questions. We pride ourselves on getting answers to those questions.

Personal interests:

When I am not representing the rights of injury victims, I devote my time to being an active husband and father of five children.

I enjoy running marathons and coaching my childrens' soccer teams.
