Chris Keegan, Attorney

Keegan & Co. Attorneys has been in the Eastgate Cincinnati area for over 30 years and in Middletown for over 15 years and our attorneys have over 50 years of combined legal bankruptcy experience.

We have filed over 8,000 bankruptcies for satisfied clients during this time. I received my under undergraduate degree from the University of the Cumberlands and Law degree from the University of Cincinnati.

I began my career in 1988 as an Assistant Clermont County Prosecutor. From there I went into private practice opening the current firm in 1992.

I find bankruptcy practice very rewarding because of the tremendous good we do for people. The Bankruptcy Code is very powerful. It is very satisfying to use it to help clients, for example: stop a foreclosure, wipe out oppressive debt, end a wage garnishment, get relief from abusive collection practices, lower car and credit card payments, among others benefits.

It is rewarding to see our clients enjoy peace of mind as they receive their fresh financial start. It is our focus to fully implement the Bankruptcy Code to the benefit of our clients.

Steve Malkiewicz, Associate Attorney

Steve Malkiewicz earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and his law degree from University of Dayton School of Law.

Devoting his entire practice to bankruptcy, Steve has successfully helped thousands of clients obtain discharges throughout his almost 20 years as an attorney.

Representing various Chapter 7 Trustees for a number of years, Steve obtained a unique perspective within the bankruptcy system by representing clients from each side of the “table.”

Steve also helped navigate numerous Debtors-in-Possession through complex Chapter 11 cases, successfully obtaining confirmed plans to reorganize. Steve is currently licensed to practice law by the State of Ohio and admitted to the U.S. District Court for the Northern and Southern Districts of Ohio.

When not practicing, Steve enjoys spending time with his two sons and their dog Franz, as well as cheering on his Michigan Wolverines.
