Jennifer L. Keel is admitted to practice in Maryland, Minnesota (inactive), the District of Columbia, California (inactive), Colorado, and handles catastrophic injury cases across the country.
Her practice focuses on complex medical malpractice cases involving birth trauma, kernicterus, cerebral palsy, brain and spinal cord injuries, and many other medical and surgical errors that have resulted in catastrophic injuries and/or death.
Jennifer is one of the industry’s thought leaders on electronic medical records evidence and audit trail use in medical negligence litigation, and teaches lawyers across the country how to obtain and make use of this important evidence. She also consults for lawyers and law firms on an hourly basis to assist with these issues in their cases.
Jennifer has a unique and varied medical background not typical of medical negligence lawyers. In addition to her undergraduate education in biology and biochemistry, she also completed the rigorous didactic and clinical education program for New York State’s highest level of prehospital care providers, and became a paramedic in 1995.
She worked as a full-time paramedic for six years in the city of Rochester, New York, during which time she treated thousands of patients in need of emergent medical and surgical intervention in the prehospital setting.
Jennifer also spent two years as a Tissue Procurement Specialist and Procurement Team Leader for the Rochester Eye and Human Parts Bank, where she performed sterile, surgical tissue procurement procedures on tissue donors to recover transplantable joints and tissues for recipients across the country.
While completing her undergraduate education, Jennifer worked in the operating room as an anesthesia technician and scrub-assist technician, in a secured skilled nursing facility attending to Alzheimer’s patients, and gained experience in various areas of veterinary medicine and surgery—each of which contributes to her understanding of broad medical and physiological concepts.
Jennifer’s background and specialized medical training and experience makes her uniquely well-suited to medical negligence litigation, which is the primary focus in her practice.
Jennifer’s cumulative experiences in patient care provide a distinct advantage to her clients: her broad base of knowledge of medicine and medical and surgical standards and techniques offers context within which to analyze and prosecute cases.
Jennifer has taught a course in medical malpractice litigation with the Sturm College of Law in Denver, has published articles on various topics in medical negligence, and has lectured in various continuing legal education programs and private seminars across the country.
