Testimonials from clients of Keating Law Offices, P.C.
“Mike and his team really came through for me. I was hit by a car that ran a stop sign while on my bike. It put me in ICU for a week, and then several months of rehab to feel normal again.
On the day we appeared in court, the driver plead not guilty to the offense. The officer who was on the scene at the accident, ticketed the driver and filed the accident report was present in court, and testified on my behalf. I stated the facts to the judge about being hit on my bike by the driver who ignored the stop sign. Open and shut, right? Nope. The judge ruled in the driver’s favor, stating that I could have stopped my bicycle in time. Everyone in court was stunned.
But despite this, Mike doubled-down with the driver’s insurance agency, hammered home my case, and won a settlement that exceeded my expectations. I can’t thank him enough for all that he did for me. It’s good to have a seasoned pro like Mike in my corner.”
-K.M., Bicycle Commuter
“I did get the final settlement in the mail today and just wanted to thank you again. As you are aware, I originally thought that this incident would work itself out, and was something that I’d be able to handle on my own, but after an insurance company tried to blame me for the accident, and the back and forth over so many seemingly minor details, I’m confident in saying that I couldn’t have gotten through this without you. You were thorough, responsive and most importantly, became someone that I trust. With any luck, there won’t be a need for me to work with you again but wanted to wish you all the best in the future. Thanks again.”
-M.V., Bicycle Commuter and Recreational Rider
“Mike and his team are a big reason why I am alive today. After a very serious accident that left me uninsured and clinging to life in the ICU, Keating Law worked ceaselessly, without pay to bring those responsible to justice. Mike himself spent hours at my bedside, talking with my wary parents, keeping us up to date with what was happening, and proving beyond doubt that he was only motivated by the desire to see justice served. I had never had a lawyer before, and I feel lucky that Mike was my first. He and his associates did literally everything they could to help my case, and, in the process, I gained a friend I’ll cherish for life. Thank you, Mike. And thank you Keating Law!”
-D.V. , Chicago Bicycle Commuter
“I can’t say enough good things about the Bicycle Lawyers at Keating Law Offices, P.C. They saw me through a rather lengthy litigation, and left no stone unturned. They constantly kept me apprised of everything that was taking place, were so thorough with every detail, and fought constantly to get the most for me. Their level of professionalism is unmatched, always willing to answer any question or concern, constantly making themselves available to ensure that I understood everything that was going on. Hard working, dedicated, and tenacious. It was an honor to be represented by them.”
-G.P., Professional Duathlete
“Michael and his team made getting hit by a car a lot less painful. I'm a bike commuter. Every day I leave the house, I hope for a good one. I can only be so careful...the rest is up to everyone else. Unfortunately, you can't always count on others to do what's right. I was involved in a bike/car accident, fully the fault of the driver, and fortunately, got away relatively unscathed. In this case, I could have taken the $500 cash the driver offered me, but I'm smarter than that. I went to Keating Law Office, and spoke with Michael who confirmed my choice to reach out to a professional on this one. He set me up with Joe, who clearly communicated any information or documents I needed to obtain, and even went with me to my court date to make sure I knew what I was doing. In the end, I got my bike paid for, all the bills paid for, and even ‘pain and suffering.’ Let's just say, it was more than a measly $500.
If you get hit by a car, you NEED a lawyer, even if you're relatively okay. You're entitled to be reimbursed for the incident, and too many people assume they aren't. While Keating deals with all kinds of personal injury cases, these guys will educate you on bike law, take the time to work with you, and treat you like a friend. They also happen to be very supportive of the Chicago cycling community. Hands down, my #1 recommendation.”

“I had a great experience working with KLO- I was hit by a car on my bike and I didn't think anyone would take my case. But they did and it was a great success! I got a very fair settlement in a reasonable amount of time. Plus they were all incredibly helpful! I send all my friends who need help to KLO.”
-S.J., Bicycle Commuter and Bike Messenger
“The Illinois Bike Lawyers have left an amazing lasting impression on me. They have worked tirelessly to represent me and have always fought to get me what they feel I deserve. Extremely professional and courteous and willing to answer any questions about my case. I know that sometimes court decisions are out of their hands but they continue to strive to get justice. I would recommend them to anyone who is in a bicycle related accident and needs representation. A++++”
-S.M., Bicycle Commuter and Elite Bicycle Racer
“They said they didn’t want to leave a cyclist behind and were trying to get justice. I’m thankful to everyone in the bike community and the attorneys for supporting me.”
-A.B., Bicycle Commuter
“Catelyn you are an amazing lawyer! I can’t believe this amount. Thank you so much for everything you did in the past year and a half and for not ever giving up on my case. I’ve never interacted with a lawyer before but now you’ve set the bar really high if I ever have to see one again.”
-A.Z., Bicycle Commuter
“The insurance company tried to claim I was 50% at fault – the attorneys at KLO continued to fight until the insurance company finally acknowledged the driver lied about what happened and accepted full responsibility for my injuries and damages. I was glad to have KLO on my side!”
-J.M., Chicago Bicyclist
“I can't say enough about Keating Law Office and the work that Michael and Catelyn did for my family. After my oldest daughter, who was 7 at the time, was hit by a car when she was on her bike and legally crossing, I was extremely emotional and the idea of legal representation did not seem like a priority. However, it was necessary, am I'm so glad I connected with them. I've never, in my life, hired a lawyer for any reason, but I'm so glad we did. Thank you.”
-M.M.H., Chicago Bicyclist
“Best ever! Mike Keating and his team made the Personal Injury settlement process very easy. I never had to worry about anything and felt taken care of every step of the way.”
