I became a lawyer after serving in the Air Force. That background has given me a unique perspective on working with people and resolving their problems. In addition to achieving a successful outcome, my goal is also to alleviate the anxiety that comes with disputes and ensure that my clients are confident in my ability to protect their interests. Clients need that reassurance from their lawyer.

Mr. Kealy’s practice is focused on the litigation of complex commercial matters. His diverse experience includes the resolution of business disputes involving contracts, real estate, real estate brokerage, landlords/tenants, partnerships, professional malpractice, franchises, construction, insurance, intellectual property and environmental law issues. He has represented clients in proceedings before various federal and state regulatory agencies, has tried cases in the Superior Court of New Jersey, argued appeals before the Appellate Division, and represented clients in arbitration hearings and mediations throughout New Jersey.
