Mike Keating has been the Chair of the Bicycle Litigation Group since 2013. The group is comprised of attorneys throughout the nation who focus all or part of their practice on representing victims of bicycle crashes and their families. The group’s meetings regularly are focused on changes in bicycle laws and the members’ shared focus of advocating for their clients in claims against insurance companies and corporations. Meetings are held every February during the Winter Meeting and again every summer at the AAJ Annual Convention held each year in a different city throughout the country.

This year’s event was held in Denver, the “Mile High City.” Denver is a very bicycle friendly city which was evident by the number of protected bike lanes and excellent signage. Given its location to the Rocky Mountains, the area also boasts some of the best mountain biking in the world. In addition to working as an attorney on behalf of the victims of bicycle crashes, Mike Keating is an avid bicyclist. While in Colorado Mike Keating had the opportunity to join other bicycle law attorneys and bicycle experts to the Trestle Bike Park at Winter Park Resort for a day of lift-accessed mountain biking at elevations over 12,000 feet.
