03/20/2014 (press release: KGWhistleblower) // Jeffery Keller
The Keller Grover law firm is pleased to announce the selection of Jeffrey F. Keller as a 2014 “Super Lawyer” — a rating awarded to just five percent of the nation’s attorneys. This marks the fourth consecutive year in which Keller, a founding partner of the firm, has received the prestigious designation.
A veteran trial lawyer, Keller specializes in consumer protection, antitrust, and whistleblower litigation. He has been instrumental in building Keller Grover — which has locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Jose, and Oakland — into a nationally recognized law firm in the areas of consumer, business, whistleblower and employment law. A graduate of Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and the L.L.M. program at New York University, Keller has played a key role in several landmark antitrust and consumer protection cases, including the three billion dollar settlement in the Visa/MasterCard Debit Card Antitrust litigation and a RICO class action suit on behalf of consumers that resulted in the largest settlement in California in 2010.
Within the legal profession, a Super Lawyers ranking recognizes those attorneys who have both professional achievements and a high degree of peer recognition. Nominees — who can be nominated by peers or identified via independent research by the Super Lawyers rating service — are evaluated on 12 key indicators. Among these are verdicts and settlements; transactions; representative clients; experience; honors and awards; pro bono and community service; and scholarly lectures and writings.
“As lawyers, our job is to win cases, recoveries, and justice for the individuals who come to us for help,” says Keller. “There is no better affirmation that you’re doing that job well than when you win the respect of your clients, and your peers. That’s what makes the Super Lawyers ranking so meaningful and such an honor to receive. It’s the lawyers who see you in court, or at the negotiating table, saying you’re doing things right. And more importantly, that you’re doing right by the people who rely on you.”
