Chris Keating joined Malamut & Associates in 2021, bringing with him expertise in a wide-range of plaintiff-side litigation and government investigations. Chris has spent his career fighting for the underdogs in our legal system in matters of employment law, consumer fraud, and personal injury matters. At the Firm, Chris focuses on plaintiff-side litigation in the areas of employment law, civil rights, False Claims Act and qui tam, and catastrophic injuries and wrongful death matters.

An experienced advocate, Chris has argued before New Jersey’s Appellate Division and Supreme Court and has tried bench and jury trials to verdict. A former Deputy Attorney General with the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, Chris has prosecuted and secured convictions against unscrupulous employers who steal wages from their employees and knowingly expose their employees to dangerous working conditions in violation of state and federal laws. For his outstanding work combating government fraud and abuse, Chris received awards and recognition from the United States Department of Labor and the United States Postal Service.

While at Seton Hall Law, Chris won the law school’s moot court competition after arguing the final round before United States Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor. After law school, Chris served as the law clerk for the Honorable Lisa M. Vignuolo, in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Middlesex Vicinage.
