After graduating from Harvard College and Boston College Law School, I have practiced law since 1974 - over 40 years. Since 1994 I have focused on Social Security Disability law. We have handled over 10,000 Social Security Disability cases in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
When my father developed severe rheumatoid arthritis he was forced to discontinue his career as a civil engineer, even while still trying to pay for college tuitions. That illness and its affect on my Dad's life and our family opened a window for me - showing clearly the day to day hardships of loss of income, the daily pain from the illness itself, and loss of prestige and satisfaction that goes along with no longer being able to work at the profession or job that you are trained to do. When we are able to get a client the Social Security benefits they deserve, we know it does not put them back to where they were, but it provides monthly income, usually with back pay, and health insurance. Our attorneys and paralegals know what to do, and it is the way that we can help. And we are happy to help!
My wife Patti (in pink sweater below) and I have been raising a large family - we have eleven children. Ten of the children have graduated from college, and the remaining one is still attending college. We have one child in Houston, two children in San Francisco, one in Minnesotta, one in London, England, two in Rome, Italy. So far, we have 22 grandchildren. Patti and I are involved with Family Enrichment of Massachusetts, offering case study method courses to married couples who wish to improve their skills as parents or as spouses, with an acheivable goal to improve and enrich family life.

I learned everything I know about Social Security Disability and the practice of law from John Keefe in the six years I worked for him. Not only does he have a keen legal mind but his sense of duty to his clients is second to none. He and his staff are always on the ball and prepared. In addition, he is the ultimate family man and his leadership skills are evident in the way he treats all of his clients. I endorse this lawyer!
