The History of Kevin Keenan, Attorney in Grand Rapids, MI

Kevin Keenan grew up in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri. He came to Michigan in 1988 to attend Grand Valley State University for his undergraduate education, and while there was also fortunate enough to find the woman who would become his best friend and wife. After graduating from GVSU, Kevin had a successful career in manufacturing management for three Fortune 500 companies in West Michigan. For over 13 years, he honed his skills involving problem solving, communication, and leadership.

At the age of 35, Kevin took on the challenge of law school, graduated with his Juris Doctor degree, and earned his license to practice law in Michigan in 2008. From 2009 to 2018, Kevin was an attorney in Grand Rapids, MI, with a highly respected general practice law firm downtown. During this time, he built a successful practice by advocating effectively for the rights of his clients and through personal service to their individual legal needs. In the summer of 2018, Kevin launched the Keenan Legal Group, with a focus on providing his clients with the legal services they need for their businesses and their family.

Professional Information

Kevin M. Keenan practices in the areas of business law, estate planning, and real estate matters. He is experienced in civil litigation and criminal defense, while also serving on behalf of individuals and businesses in arbitration, mediation, and case evaluation in state court, federal court, and administrative agencies.

In the area of business law, Mr. Keenan assists individuals and employers with establishing their company as a Limited Liability Company or a corporation. He provides legal services for these entrepreneurs by preparing effective, concise support documents that fit the needs of the business while matching the tone of their brand. This includes preparing client contracts, employment agreements, independent and subcontractor agreements, employee handbooks, operating agreements, and a variety of other contracts to clearly establish the rights and responsibilities of the parties involved. He works with businesses and individuals to resolve conflicts using every available option up to and including litigation when absolutely necessary. Mr. Keenan's 13 years of manufacturing management experience in West Michigan, combined with his litigation experience, has given him a unique perspective to help find solutions for his clients' problems.

As an estate planner, Mr. Keenan meets with his clients to determine the proper plan to cover their needs. This includes preparing wills, trusts, powers of attorney documents, patient advocate designations, the appointment of agents, and petitioning the courts on behalf of caretakers that wish to be granted guardianship status for developmentally disabled individuals. As no two clients are the same, Mr. Keenan works with his clients to plan for their individual family needs and concerns— as opposed to taking a cookie-cutter approach to estate planning.

Finally, part of Mr. Keenan's practice involves advocating for the rights of those clients accused of misdemeanor criminal offenses, including Michigan license and driving violations, simple assault, retail fraud, and driving under the influence. Mr. Keenan has successfully worked with clients to expunge criminal records in several West Michigan counties. In addition, he successfully advocates restoring driving privileges for his clients who have had them revoked or denied for any number of reasons through the administrative hearing process with the Driver's License Appeal Division of the Michigan Secretary of State.
