Our Staff

Michael Keogh

When choosing a Solicitor for your legal needs, you want an experienced practitioner who will understand your situation and be able to work with you.

With decades of working in private practice as a Principal Solicitor, Michael knows that wisdom as well as legal knowledge is required to provide clients with cost effective legal solutions.
Michael has practised Law for over 30 years, having been admitted as a Solicitor in 1985. He obtained his Bachelor of Law in 1983 and his Bachelor of Economics in 1980.
Keogh & Co Lawyers opened its doors in December 1989 and has successfully developed as a practice offering a wide range of professional legal services. Keogh & Co Lawyers’ client base has grown over the years as a consequence of providing cost effective and excellent advice and guidance. The majority of the firm's work is sourced from referrals from satisfied clients and other legal practitioners in the District.
In Michael’s early years of practice, he engaged as a general practitioner. However, for the last 20 years his focus and expertise has been in the areas of Wills and Estates, Commercial and Business Law and Property and Conveyancing. Michael has represented clients in complex Estate matters, Commercial negotiations and Business Contracts with great success.
Michael’s desire for further knowledge and drive to improve himself caused him to study further and he has obtained a Graduate Diploma in Philosophy.
Experience and knowledge of the Law is not always enough to resolve a problem. Legal solutions emerge when experience and knowledge are combined with the ability to apply these to the problem with prudence and common sense.
