Aside from representing clients and helping them to resolve their legal problems in the quickest and easiest fashion I can, one thing I enjoy doing is explaining law and legal issues to media and large audiences.  For some reason, I’ve never had a fear of speaking before large groups of people, and I found out two things very early in my legal career:  1)  Most people don’t understand how law comes to be formed, where it comes from, or how the legal system works, and 2)  Most people are fascinated with the working of the legal system – more particularly, that is, the court system.  Add the criminal legal system into the mix, and people become even more interested.  That almost certainly explains the popularity of John Grisham’s legal thrillers, and the seemingly endless popularity of legal entertainment in the media.  Television has always been a leading barometer:  Whether it was “Perry Mason” a half century ago, “Judd For The Defense” 30 years ago, “LA Law” twenty years ago, “The Practice” ten years ago, or “Boston Legal” and “Damages” today, the viewing public never ceases to be amazed and intrigued by the workings of the American legal system.

 

I always had a natural talent in articulating complex ideas and topics, so that whoever was listening could understand and connect to those topics.  In both high school and college, almost whenever people would listen to me “argue” or advocate a given position, they would almost invariably react with “You know, he’s got a certain way about him; I see his point.”  So it was a given, I guess, that some form of advocacy was going to be in my professional future.  When I’m not in court or representing clients, I really enjoy commenting on legal and legislative issues in the media:  Radio and television are favorites of mine, but I also provide commentary to print news outlets.  My first job after I graduated law school, was as media spokesperson and Editor-In-Chief of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys (MATA), www.massacademy.com, which is the state chapter of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA, which is now called the American Association for Justice, www.justice.org.)  One of my principal jobs there was to be the organization’s voice and face to the media on the subjects of tort law, tort reform and the liability insurance system, and in that capacity I commented almost daily to the general print and broadcast media, as well as to specialty legal news media such as Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, the National Law Journal and Lawyers Weekly USA.  I performed the same spokesperson functions later for the liability insurance industry, when I covered New England for the Insurance Information Institute, www.iii.org.  

 

These talents led me to develop the idea to create my own legal talk show on cable television, and I took that idea to the cable TV system that then covered south suburban Boston, Cablevision Systems.  They liked the idea, and “At The Bar” was first broadcast in May 1995. For the next nine years, through various cable license transfers to AT&T BroadBand, then to Comcast Cable, At The Bar was broadcast weekly to several towns in south suburban Boston.  I was the Executive Producer and Host of this weekly legal talk show, which showcased various cases being covered in the local and national media, and each show featured a guest attorney who was a specialist in a given area.  Among my guests were the Attorney General of Massachusetts, District Attorneys, state legislators, and legal reporters.  More than anything else, At The Bar  was fun.  I was never paid a dime – my work was entirely civic volunteerism, but I enjoyed it immensely.  When Comcast cable took over the broadcast license for this geographic area in 2004, it terminated local access broadcast programming, and At The Bar, along with other programming, ended.  For approximately eight years, I served as a Director of the Westwood Community Access Television Corp. (WestCAT), a non-profit organization that was charged with the responsibility of overseeing the creation and development of a new, independent production company broadcasting quality local access television in Westwood, Massachusetts.  This local broadcast organization is now known as Westwood Media Center, and is a thriving source of local television programming, local government affairs access, and local news. 

 

I’ve also taught legal courses at three local colleges:  Fisher College in Boston, Newbury College in Brookline, and Massachusetts Bay Community College, in Wellesley.  Teaching is a part of my public education skills, and it’s something I enjoy immensely.  The courses I’ve taught include Criminal Law, Civil Litigation, Introduction to Law and the American Legal System, Business Law, Real Estate Law and Family Law.  To bring new knowledge to students who want to learn is a very fulfilling experience.  I’d enjoy teaching at a law school someday.

 

I’m also a blogger, and have two separate blogs that I post regulalrly to:  www.bostoncriminalattorneyblog.com, where I regularly write on the subject of criminal law in Massachusetts, and www.bostonaccidentlawyerblog.com, where I write on a variety of injury law and liability issues in Massachusetts.  When I’m not writing or commenting about the law, I enjoy working out at the gym and reading history.  Staying physically fit is important to me, and I also study a form of Russian military self-defense, called “Combat Sambo.”  It helps to balance mind and body, and I study (and practice) this martial art with my beautiful wife, Debbi K. Kickham. Another thing clients or readers may not know about me, is that, with my wife Debbi, I’m also a Travel Editor and Writer.  Debbi’s background before we met was as a travel writer and reporter, and through our courtship and marriage, we found ourselves traveling very frequently, to the point where we would both regularly write and edit our stories.  Our stories have appeared in several different newspapers, magazines and websites, and if you Google either of our names, you will find various travel stories we’ve written.  We’ve been everywhere from Boston to Bora-Bora, all over Europe and the Caribbean.   Hawaii and luxury cruises are our specialty areas.

 

By the way, of all the gifts or all the things I’ve been given, my wife Debbi is by far the most important and valuable of these.  I try to live my life and outlook based on (of all things) a magnet we have on our refrigerator.   It reads:  “Rich Is Not How Much Money You Have.  Rich is Who You Have Beside You.”

Me and the greatest gift I've ever been given, my beautiful wife Debbi.

Kind and Professional
I sent an email to Mr. Kickham about a case related to my elderly parents. I suspected this was something out of his area of concern but unlike the 95% of lawyers I contacted, he was one of the few who called me back. He wasn’t able to take the case and yet not only did he offer detailed professional advice at no cost but he was kind and empathetic. Mr. Kickham is one of a kind. Without sounding hyperbolic, the legal community is lucky to have him.

Great at his job!!!
I found myself in a terrible situation by accident and I was facing a felony. I knew I had to retain a lawyer that knew the law inside and out. I did my research and concluded that Mr. Kickham was my best choice to defend me in my case. I called and left a voicemail and within a few short hours I received a call back from Mr. Kickham himself. I thought for sure I would be talking to a paralegal before ever talking to an attorney. I dealt with Mr. Kickham directly throughout my entire case. He worked with the office of the DA before I even appeared for my arraignment and got them to agree to drop the felony down to a misdemeanor. Mr. Kickham explained every step of the process for me and answered any and all questions that I had of him or the process itself. I told him that I just wanted this all to go away as fast as possible with the least amount of damage possible. He explained to me that he would ask the judge for my case to be continued without finding and that I would agree to pay the fine in front of me. Mr. Kickham further explained that his recommendation would mean there wouldn’t be a conviction in my name. The day of my arraignment he did exactly what was talked about and the DA recommended to the judge that it be dropped from a felony to a misdemeanor plus the fine and Mr. Kickham recommended the No conviction disposition. He told the judge just who I am and what I have done with my life. The judge agreed and accepted Mr. Kickham’s disposition recommendation. Right after the judge made it official he looked at me and said that my attorney did a great job in defending me. I couldn’t agree more! Mr. Kickham took a terrible situation and got it to be cleared up for me with ease. I have been to court before for my previous career but have never been on the wrong side of the law before. In all of the times that I have been to court for work, I have NEVER heard a judge state that someone’s attorney did a great job. I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Kickham. If you find yourself in need of an attorney, I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. William D. Kickham.

Great Result
William Kickham worked very hard to get me the best outcome. I could not have asked to come across a better person, let alone lawyer. Bill helped me through one of the toughest times in my life proactively, patiently, and efficiently. Thank you so much, Bill - in more ways than you know, you saved me. He took time to collect all the necessary details and came up with the best option to get out of this matter smoothly. As a lawyer he is also very caring, empathetic and respects his client. He also has good sense of humor (which we all need during this tough times). The result was much better than I hoped for. I would recommend William Kickham as an excellent, personable attorney with reasonable rates. If you are looking for a good Lawyer to represent you, look no further! I really appreciate your hard work and everything you have done for me!

The Dynamic Duo to the Rescue!
I was involved in a motor vehicle accident in the Boston metropolitan area. The other driver was employed by a business, and due to the negligence of the other driver I sustained multiple serious injuries. Soon after the accident I talked to a number of Law firms about this accident, but as soon as those other lawyers heard that my case involved a business vehicle, and knowing that my case would be an extremely difficult task to win, all the other lawyers ran for the hills. On the other hand; the Law Offices of William D. Kickham and Associates took the time to listen to the details of my accident, then William Kickham explained the difficult road ahead for us and brought in his colleague Atty. Frank Prokos. I call this team the Dynamic Duo, together they have what it takes to take on the toughest of injury related cases, together they form a formidable One Two Punch. Together they have the insurance industry expertise to negotiate settlements, and if necessary they will fight through the bloodiest of drag out Court battles... without going into any further detail regarding my case, I'll just say that my case has come to it's conclusion... and I'm very happy that I called the Law Offices of William D. Kickham and Associates.

Professional and efficient - would recommend!
Mr. Kickham was incredibly kind and professional. I was thoroughly pleased with his work and diligence, and my August 2020 court outcome (traffic violation) was favorable to me. Our virtual interactions were also quite seamless, and there were no in-person meetings required. I would recommend him to anyone else without hesitation!

WE WON!
I am grateful and pat myself on the back for hiring Attorney Kickham. He was attentive, always kept his word and achieved great (and deserved) results for me. You can protect yourself from a thief but not a liar. That is what we were up against and Mr. Kickham protected me. It was enjoyable watching this pro take down that prosecution, exposing the situation for what it was with finesse. I highly recommend Attorney Kickham, that is, if you want a proven champion to fight the battle before you. I did, he won and the prosecutor was bummed. Mr. Kickham turned an overwhelming situation for me into an awesome experience!

Highly recommended
Not many of us are experts when it comes to picking out an attorney in times of sudden need. I relied on recommendations to find Bill, and we could not have been more pleased. Bill came to our aid with a fairly serious issue that arose for our minor son. He was highly engaged, attentive, logical, thorough and an excellent advisor. He made it clear that he was representing our son and therefore, made sure that our son understood all options, possibilities and consequences. Our boy asked many questions and Bill was patient and spoke with him respectfully. He always made sure that actions taken were in his young client's best interests. He thoroughly explained the options and recommended best approaches. Bill clearly was the difference in affecting a positive outcome for our boy. If you have a similar need, do not hesitate to call Bill.

Incredible lawyer
I am 19 years old and was facing a felony aggravated assault and battery charge. I contacted William Kickham about my case, I immediately felt protected and comfortable with him by my side. This is the first time I had ever been in trouble and I was facing jail time so I was very scared and was not messing around when it came to finding a strong attorney for myself. I spent hours looking for an attorney to represent me when I came across attorney Kickham I felt very confident in him. Then I after consulting with him I was sure by the time I hung up the phone I wanted attorney Kickham by my side. Attorney Kickham got right down to business, I wanted to get this case over with as fast as possible and as least damaging to me as possible. It took two court appearances to resolve the case in my favor. The case resulted in amending the original charge of a felony a&b to misdemeanor a&b which resulted in a C.W.A.F (Continued Without a Finding) Attorney Kickhams professionalism in this matter was incredible. He was extremely intelligent and knowledgeable in and out of the courthouse. He worked very fast and aggressive when it came to negotiating with the prosecutors. It was very easy to find time to contact attorney Kickham, he was able to make house calls late at night, I was able to contact him after work. He work as if he was not just defending another client, but as if he was preserving my future and I am very thankful for him. I highly recommend attorney Kickham.

A result driven attorney!
Attorney Kickham represented a very close relative of mine in a very sensitive case to whom I will be grateful for the rest of my life. Being overwhelmed, desperate and stressed, we found Mr. Kickham by a simple google search and phoned him right away at 11:30PM on a January night. To my surprise he picked up the phone right away and gave us very specific instructions where he walked us in lengths of the possible outcomes and assured us that his expertise would make possible for the best results. From the moment we met him, you could tell his professionalism, and vast experience in complicated cases made all of us feel comfort. Eventually, in a very short period of time he delivered a great outcome we were all seeking. Very Grateful and I would, without a doubt, recommend Attorney Kickham to anyone because his experience, professionalism and his ways of communicating will always put you in advantage!

Outstanding Attorney
Several months ago, I found myself in the very unfortunate circumstance of facing several serious criminal charges. It was the kind of case where I had been caught in the act and there seemed very little that could be done to get me out of this devastating situation. The charges, had they gone forward, would have certainly resulted in the loss of my employment, not to mention the alienation and embarrassment of my family and friends. I was extremely depressed, alone and was considering ending it all because I saw no way out without humiliation and disgrace. I was at my wits end when I happened to search the internet to seek help. I was very fortunate to come across the name of Attorney William Kickham who had previously handled a case similar to the one I was now facing. It is no exaggeration to say that not only was Attorney Kickham able to help me legally, but also assisted me personally in seeking the help I needed to deal with the issues that got me into trouble in the first place. He was literally available the entire time from our first consultation to our last day in court, day or night to answer my questions and concerns. He explained the ramification of my legal situation, my realistic options, and most importantly that he would do everything in his power to see that I was given the best chance to try and resolve this case in the most favorable way. Over the six month process, Attorney Kickham not only did what he said he would do, but did so with professionalism, understanding and skill, working towards an outcome I can only describe as nothing less than a miracle. He used every legal skill and option he possessed to have the criminal charges withdrawn and replaced with a minor civil fine, and did so while maintaining both my privacy and dignity! If you want an attorney who will be with you the whole way, fight with everything he has on your behalf, and be there for you as you face perhaps the worse chapter of your life, Attorney Kickham is that man. Please, if you find yourself in need of legal assistance and have nowhere to turn, Attorney Kickham is the one you want to call.

Thanks so much, J.T. Such situations call for not only a surgical understanding of the law, but an ability to deftly produce a specific outcome that protects the client's present future interests. I am glad that you entrusted this critical matter to me. You have a bright future ahead of you!

Successfully argued my defense on 2 moving violations
Attorney Kickham was responsive and excellent in representing me in defense against two bogus moving violations in the city of Boston. He understood my position, asked for details, researched the incident, and I felt very comfortable that he would help me be found not responsible. The result was as hoped. I would recommend him without reservation and would use him again should the need arise. Other attorneys were unresponsive or seemed willing, but disinterested in taking my case. I found not-responsible on both infractions.

Thank you, Mark. I appreciate your comments. Things can happen to people that may seem "minor," but if they aren't handled correctly, can bring on more financial costs and headaches than most people realize. Glad that I could get you the outcome that you needed.
