What people are saying:

Meet Ruby Jo. She is eight years old. She loves swimming, swinging, music, roller coasters, long walks, shopping, and a chocolate messy face. Her eyes light up the room, her smile is infectious. She has a bubbly, loving personality. As cliché as it sounds, she profoundly impacts everyone that she meets. We are all better people from having her in our lives. She loves being with her family and friends. She brings us all so much joy. She love hugs, cuddles, and affections. More than anything, she loves to laugh at her little sister. She has taken a great interest in watching her grow. But she's not all play, she's a serious kid too. She loves both her schools, yes she has two, and she is very eager to learn new things and grow as a person. She's smart, clever, and often plays the trickster displaying sneaky intelligence. She is becoming a real person with real personality and real relationships and connections. From this description, one would never know that she suffered a tragic birth trauma that resulted in her diagnosis of cerebral palsy with accompanying physical disabilities. She does not have one independent life skill. She cannot sit, stand, walk, talk, crawl or use a fork or utensil to feed herself. My pregnancy with her was typical and healthy. She was born at 40 weeks, but under tragic conditions. And while we cannot change the medical decisions that were made on that day, we strive every always to give her the best life possible. We are dedicated to helping her reach the fullest potential in every way - emotionally, physically, socially, educationally, and academically. Thanks to Brian McKeen, Terry Dawes, and all of McKeen and associates, we have the resources to do just that. We have the means to do all we can to help Ruby have a life she otherwise would not have. Again, we cannot take back what has already been done, but the settlement received through McKeen and associates, has made life happier, brighter, and easier in every way for her and for those who love and care for her. Without the settlement, we would be struggling financially and logistically. Without the resources, her development would suffer, as would her basic medical needs. It is obvious that Ruby would not have the advantages that she has now without McKeen's help. She would not be as healthy, happy and developed. All of the money in the world will never be able to remove the brain injury that Ruby suffered, but the settlement has helped bring stability and peace into our lives, which makes for a peaceful and happy Ruby. We are so grateful and appreciative of our relationship with the legal staff at McKeen and Associates and we would not be in the place we are without them.

Before we began our Leading Lawyers research of all layers in Michigan, I surveyed 25 of the most reputable and respected personal injury trial lawyers in Illinois. They made it very clear to me that Brian McKeen is THE personal injury plaintiffs trial lawyer in Michigan. The fact that he is an experienced and respected TRIAL LAWYER is very significant. He does not run a factory plaintiffs' firm. Brian and his staff prepare to represent every one of their clients in a courtroom - which is why they have received record setting out of court settlements. Brian is the real deal in Michigan and I strongly recommend him and his team for Medical Malpractice, Product Liability, Wrongful Death, Transportation and other personal injury accidents involving negligence on the part of others.

On behalf of Diana's entire family and myself, I would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to you and the firm for the long sought after successful outcome of our case. Specifically for the outstanding representation we received from Joel Sanfield and Brian Molde. Undoubtedly you are confident in their legal and technical abilities in the courtroom- they clearly had mastered both the legal and medical aspects of our claim. The way they handled each objection and effectively exposed the weak defense was impressive. The judge was very complimentary of their professionalism and case presentation.

However, the manner in which they handled our case went beyond the competence of very good attorneys. Early on they elicited our trust, which of course is vital to the attorney/client relationship. They were caring and inquiring and encouraging- they wanted to know us as people so that they could present the best possible case. You should know that even before the reading of the verdict, we as a family expressed our sincere appreciation for their obvious efforts, commitment and belief in our case. We knew that no matter the verdict, we had been completely and fully represented and would forever sing high praises for Joel and Brian. We have spent a great deal of time talking about the events of the trial and continue to recall our "favorite" and most impactful Joel and Brian moments. They even managed to infuse humor which was a great stress reliever for us all. They treated our family, the judge, jury and the defendants with the respect the situation warranted. We feel we were blessed that these two gentlemen were part of what was one of the most emotionally charged and difficult experiences of our lives. ln the end, we wanted the win for Joel and Brian as we did for ourselves and Diana!

Sincerely, D.C.


Thank you for all your help and professionalism throughout this crazy process. We appreciate your updates and explanations. We would have been lost without. McKeen in a whole has been wonderful. Thank you for getting my life back on track.

- Jeffrey



I was impressed with the thoroughness and professionalism in pursuing this case. The fact that McKeen & Associates accepted my case is most admirable. I am doubly grateful for this. You should be proud of the work you do. Your staff was courteous and responsive to my inquiries and requests. I would be glad to recommend McKeen & Associates at any time with all sincerity. Thank you so much.

- Paul


When my client contacted me over three years ago to discuss litigation possibilities, my office retained her and promised we would do our due diligence to find and select an attorney to refer the case to who could get her the best possible outcome and do so in such a way that she would be proud of. After speaking with a number of defense attorneys, your firm was recommended as meeting this dual mandate. In the end, you garnered a very large settlement value that will take care of her for the rest of her life, a necessary step once the primary bread winner in the family passed away. Again, thank you.

In the field of medical malpractice law, there is no one better - anywhere!


I want to thank Devin Berry for speaking with me this afternoon. She really heard and understood what I was telling her about my gastric bypass case. Even though the client does not have to do the foot work when a case is being handled, I feel like there is still a load on my shoulders until there is a resolution in this matter. A chapter is left open that you want to close. Speaking with Devin Berry gave me peace of mind knowing my case was in the hands of a very intelligent lady who knows what she is doing every step of the way. She is a true asset to a very impressive firm. I only wish I would have found them a lot earlier. I found this firm just by luck. I have read their website. I have spoke with Brian McKeen and Devin Berry. I feel now that I could not have had better luck finding their firm. Thank you very much for your interest in helping me.

Barbara


Mr. McKeen

I am writing you this letter to say thank you to you and your staff in getting the appropriate settlement for my mother's illness from breast implants. I have a very special thank you to one staff members! Winifred is wonderful. She worked very hard and close with me to accomplish the settlement through the claim dept. Winifred is hardworking, sweet, kind, and caring. She also knows her law and what exactly we needed. Above all, she was always upfront, honest, and always told me what to expect. She was very well informed of my case and any updates with the claims dept. I will miss Winifred, but I will never forget her devotion to my case and my settlement. Winifred is truly an asset to your law firm.

Shelley


Mr. McKeen,

This is a sincere thank you for the huge effort you put into getting me a fair settlement. I hope the outcome was satisfactory for your firm also, and wish you much future success. I appreciate everything that was done for me and your compassionate treatment. Thank you for the extra push.

My most sincere regards,

Joyce


Brian,

Cass III, Jeff Czerwinski and I would like to thank you and your associates. It would not of been possible for the doctors in error to be held accountable for our loss without the help and dedication of you and your firm. The resolution will never bring my husband back or my son's father. Our concern is that the doctors involved will be cautious of their future decisions with their patients so that other families will not feel the loss and pain we are still enduring.

Brian, I am so glad that my son Jeff did his research when we were seeking help with our situation. My son Cass felt confident after our initial meeting and with future phone conversations with you and those involved in our case. I appreciate all the help from your associates.

Sincerely,

Debbie Czerwinski


"McKeen Associates was literally a God sent for me. I was rendered quadriplegic following spine fusion surgery. I received 16 rejections from the most prestigious malpractice attorneys in the Lansing and Detroit area. With less than six weeks remaining before the expiration of the statue of limitations, an attorney from Mc Keen Associates, my seventeenth contact, returned my call. He asked that I forward my records and information and said he would call me back. He did call me back (much to my surprise) and Mc Keen Associates took my case and delivered a very satisfactory outcome." - Bernice


"Brian

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for what you have done for me. Your expertise and professionalism has relieved me from a tremendous burden.

Brian you have a truly exceptional law firm and I will be forever grateful to you and your staff for your efforts in this case.

My very best regards to you Brian and all your associates.

Sincerely,

Sally C. Lemus"
