A knowledgeable, confident and compassionate advocate
I was referred to Sean Flaherty by my attorney. My medical situation and outlook had me feeling anxious and a bit overwhelmed before I sat down for my initial consultation with Sean. However, he clearly and concisely explained to me how the process worked and what I should expect in the coming weeks and months. I left Sean's office that day knowing that I was in good hands. I was equally impressed by Sean's legal assistant, Jennifer Medeiros. Of course, I realize that I was not Sean's only client, but she certainly made me feel as though I was. Jennifer was very knowledgeable, responsive and kept me well-informed. She proved to be well-versed with the myriad forms and paperwork as she patiently fielded my questions. Looking back over the last several months, I realize that I could not have hired a more knowledgeable, confident and compassionate advocate to help me navigate through the difficult worker's comp and disability processes. Sean, Jennifer and the folks at the Keches Law Group worked hard to get me everything to which I was entitled. I recommend Sean Flaherty and his legal team without reservation.

Sean made me feel welcome and confident that he would help me through a workplace injury. Sean or his associates were always available to take my calls with any questions and successfully settled my claim. I would recommend Sean to anyone looking for an injury lawyer. I’m very satisfied with all the work he did for me.

Sean Flaherty
In June of 2018, I contacted Sean as a family member recommended him. I called Sean and told him of my situation in which I injured my back at work and having trouble getting physical therapy and MRI scheduled, as well as, encountering difficulties dealing with my own Primary Care physician and workman's compensation adjuster. Sean did not skip a beat. He immediately told me that he was going to be able to help me and facilitated a meeting with a doctor who could help by dealing with workman's compensation and getting the necessary things scheduled that I needed in order to promote recovery. Many times I have called Sean at his office, emailed or even texted him and he has gotten back to me and always put my mind at ease. I'm not a person that is able to easily take a position of not being control and at times I would contact Sean wondering what I needed to to do and he would always tell me that he was taking care of it and I didn't need to worry about anything. And when it came time for me to do things , Sean would be very clear in the specifications of what I needed to do. The people with whom I have encountered who work with Sean are also very helpful and professional as well. Throughout this whole experience, I have had a gamut of emotions and Sean was receptive to each of them. Included in these emotions was feeling that I was being a 'bother' by complaining about my injury and situation, or calling him with another question or guidance. I was aware that there are people out there who are far worse off than I was. Whenever I found myself saying, "I'm sorry Sean", he would immediately say to me, "Your case is just as important as anybody else's and don't ever think that I think differently because you're not as physically hurt as some people." And I truly believe that. Sean remained flexible and patient with me throughout this process. As I reflect back on this experience I am aware of how thankful I am to have had Sean advocate for me. I believe he went above and beyond with his time, patience and flexibility and I will be forever grateful for him.

Fantastic Lawyer
I had Sean Flaherty as my lawyer. He was such a kind man and he made it very easy to talk to him. He guided me in all of the right directions. I had many questions, and he responded immediately at any time of day. He got my case resolved way faster than I anticipated. He is such a great lawyer and person. I would recommend him to anyone.

Workmans Comp injury
I was injured at work, and felt confused and helpless while trying to navigate the system to get help. Through this stressful time, Sean and Jen have been an immense help to me. Every time I have reached out to Jen with a question she is so helpful and always emails me back right away. This has been a very trying time for me, and all the things Sean has told me to expect have happened, and I really feel as though I can count on him advocating for me. I can't imagine how I would have done this on my own and I would absolutely recommend Sean to anybody.

Focused and Responsive Attorney
My husband was injured at work and one of his Union brothers referred us to Sean. From the very beginning he has been an amazing help. Given the nature of my husband’s injury, we thought it would be a simple case and were hesitant to hire counsel. We just didn’t want to complicate things anymore when we thought that everyone involved just wanted to get my husband back to work as fast as possible. Thankfully, we did hire Sean. Aside from the initial surgery for my husband’s injury, the insurance company has fought us the entire way. Sean has always been there. My husband and Sean have had to go before a judge over five times about follow-up care during the last three and a half years. Every time, the judge has ruled in their favor. Sean has stayed on top of the surgeries and the compensation for lost wages. He has worked to ensure that we received all reimbursements for travel expenses and over the counter medications. There have been times that we have had issues with missing payments from the insurance. All we had to do was reach out to Sean and Jenn Medeiros, his legal assistant, and they were always quick to respond and follow-up with the insurance. In addition, Sean pursued, and ultimately obtained, Social Security compensation for my husband. Throughout the entire process, Sean has made us feel that our understanding and opinion matter. He has been dogged in his pursuit of the claim, thorough, knowledgeable and caring. Jenn has been responsive and warm. When you are injured you shouldn’t be worried about money and medical bills, you should just focus on getting better. Sean and Jenn make a great team and they are definitely the ones you want on your side during the Workman’s Compensation process. We recommend them without reservation.

Confidence inspiring
From the moment I first spoke to Sean I knew he was the right Attourney for me. He was clear and concise on what he could do for me. He was very confident and honest. I was unhappy with the firm I had initially hired. After speaking with Sean, it was clear what needed to be done. He did not speak ill of the losing firm, and I had to explain to him why I wanted to change to Keches Law group. He is an asset and sets the bar high. I feel Sean and his team have my back.

Extremely Satisfied
My husband and I highly reccommend Sean Flaherty. He has been extremely helpful from the minute we contacted him. Sean and his assistant Jen have navigated us through my husband's workmen's comensation claim for an injury he sustained at work. Our phone calls are returned promptly and our endless questions are answered thoroughly. Sean makes you feel at ease and takes the anxiety out of a very stressful time in our lives. We feel so fortunate to be working with such a dedicated team of professionals.

Highly Recommended!!!
My work is extremely physical and I get paid by the hour. If I don’t work, I don’t get paid. When I was seriously injured on the job, I had no money coming in and my medical expenses were mounting. It was an incredibly stressful time. Then a friend suggested that I call Sean Flaherty. I am so glad that I did. Sean is extremely knowledgeable about the law and the worker’s compensation process. He is thorough, organized, and always quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Sean’s assistant, Jennifer Medeiros, is an invaluable resource. Jennifer worked tirelessly on my behalf – sorting through my poorly kept records to make sure that I was reimbursed for my travel expenses to and from scores of appointments. She is warm, caring, and never too busy to return a phone a call or an e-mail. Bottom line, if you are looking for tenacious advocates who will make sure your family gets every penny it deserves - look no further.

Workers Compensation Case
Sean Flaherty is incrediable at his job! He is a true professional and a class act. He truly puts his heart and soul into each an every case. He worked very hard for us and won the case. He fights for his clients and gets what they deserve.

Feeling Protected
I was referred to Sean Flaherty after I was injured on the job. I am..was..an ICU nurse who was kicked several times by a patient requiring 2 surgeries with a third pending. When I first walked into the office it was a very professional setting yet not one that made you feel intimidated. When you talk to Sean you can tell he cares about what's going on with you. He may be a little difficult to actually speak to but that's because he's working his butt off for me. That's where his legal aide Jen Medeiros comes in. When I first met her she immediately put me at ease and told me everything would be okay, and for some reason, I believed her....there was something about her kindness and more importantly her professionalism that just set me at ease. Every email I sent her was immediately answered and when I told her I needed to speak with Sean I would get a call from him while traveling between court houses....the man is in court a lot which tells me something about this company....when Sean says he will do everything to get you everything you need to continue a meaningful life after your work related injury, that's what he's doing. Initially I thought my employer would be all I needed... I couldn't have been more wrong or naive. My case isn't over yet but I KNOW Sean and Jen have my back....certainly more than my employer. So if you find yourself in a situation like mine do yourself a favor , give Sean Flaherty a call and I guarantee for the first time since your injury you WILL feel protected.

Amazing support through the entire process!
Sean Flaherty and staff are AMAZING at what they do. After a work accident left my husband with a brain injury (as well as other physical injuries), my husband and I walked into Sean's office apprehensive about what we thought would be a tough and long process. The first day we met, Sean listen attentively to us and then told us...... "Things will never be as bad for you as they have already been". With that in our mind during the process Sean proved that to be true. Sean Flaherty led us to a succesful and fast resolution of a Social Security claim, as well as a VERY succesful workers comp claim. Sean and his staff always took the time to keep us informed of what was happening during the process all while handling everything for us. We got a pleasant and knowledgeable response to every question we had by phone or by email from Sean's assistant within minutes of asking. Sean and his staff were also very accommodating and patient to my husbands special needs by taking extra time to be sure he understood what was happening and that he was comfortable. Trusting Sean Flaherty was easy as he proved that he always had our families best interest at heart. Very early on in our case, Sean was able to win a wage discrepency issue after figuring out that the workers comp insurance company inaccurately paid my husband for quite some time. This was of no benefit to Mr. Flaherty but he worked hard to see it through and our family got the correct wages awarded retroactively. Sean Flaherty and his team are spectacular at what they do. They made us feel comfortable during a time of great uncertainty and we will forever be grateful for the positive change they have made to our lives.
