FACULTY IN THE NEWS

Re: Gregory Keating

Gregory Keating was quoted about the potential of legal fraud in wake of the wildfires devastating California. “They might fork over fees they’ll never see again to shady parties who may or may not actually be members of the bar. They might agree to exclusive representation with some lawyer,” Keating said. “Offhand, one would guess that predatory behavior in connection with insurance proceeds or obtaining the full panoply of government benefits is what a lawyer would promise.”
