Operation Sideswipe: New Orleans Lawyer Danny Keating Jr. Pleads Guilty

In what’s been considered Insurance Journal’s Most Noteworthy Topics of 2020, and now aptly dubbed as “Operation Sideswipe,” an attorney has finally pled guilty to a wire and mail fraud conspiracy, admitting that he helped orchestrate numerous vehicle crashes into big rigs to score bogus insurance payouts.

Galloway was featured for our defense work on this case and is proud to have assisted in uncovering significant evidence establishing that the accident was part of an elaborate scheme involving the plaintiffs, their attorney, and other witnesses, preventing our client and others from being defrauded.
