IRVINE, CA, MARCH 7, 2016 — Keller/Anderle LLP partner Jennifer L. Keller has become a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in America. Ms. Keller was inducted into the college at the organization’s 2016 recent Spring meeting in Maui, Hawaii.

Ms. Keller specializes in bet-the-company trials across varied practice areas that include commercial litigation, white collar criminal defense, intellectual property and class actions, among others. She has won hundreds of millions of dollars for her clients in jury trials, settled other cases in the tens of millions, and successfully defended many more.

Ms. Keller is the former President of the Orange County Bar Association. She was named by California Lawyer Magazine an “Attorney of the Year” in Litigation for outstanding achievement, and was featured in The National Law Journal’s “Winning” report, which recognizes 10 of the country’s top trial lawyers.  The Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journals routinely name her to their annual Top 100 Lawyers in California list, and she appears annually in the Lawdragon Leading 500 Lawyers in America. She also appears yearly in The Best Lawyers in America, for commercial litigation and white collar criminal defense. Los Angeles Magazine’s Southern California Super Lawyers lists her in its “Top 100 Southern California Super Lawyers,” “Top 50 Orange County Super Lawyers,” and “Top 50 Southern California Women Super Lawyers.”  Ms. Keller is also a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America trial lawyers’ honorary society.  She earned her A.B. at the University of California, Berkeley, and her law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.

Her firm, Keller/Anderle LLP, is among the premier boutique litigation forms in California. Ms. Keller and Managing Partner Kay Anderle have over 250 jury trials between them.  Unique among law firms handling high profile, bet-the-company cases of such a caliber is that both name partners are women, and the firm is women-owned.  Among its clients are MGA Entertainment and its CEO Isaac Larian; Michael Ovitz, the  Creative Artists Agency founder and former Chairman of the Walt Disney Company; Henry Nicholas, the co-founder of Broadcom; American International Group (AIG); MassMutual Insurance Company; and the McGraw Hill Companies (in The United States v. The McGraw-Hill Companies, the government’s civil suit alleging that the rating agency Standard & Poor’s improperly rated certain mortgage-backed securities).

Founded in 1950, the American College of Trial Lawyers is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.

Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5860 members in the United States and Canada, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows. The College strives to improve and elevate the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession. Qualified lawyers are called to Fellowship in the College from all branches of trial practice. They are carefully selected from among those who customarily represent plaintiffs in civil cases and those who customarily represent defendants, those who prosecute individuals accused of crime and those who defend them. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.
