Tom Kiley founded his personal injury law firm in Massachusetts on the premise that “as a personal injury trial lawyer, it is your obligation to provide clients and their families with aggressive representation and compassionate guidance through the legal process.”
Not many personal injury lawyers identify with accident victims the way Tom Kiley does. As a third generation Irish American, Tom recalls his grandfather telling stories of how his Irish immigrant great-grandfather sustained fatal injuries working in the textile mills, leaving his grandfather, Daniel Kiley, his mother, brothers and sisters to fend for themselves in a day with no public assistance. “It helped me identify with people needlessly injured by the rich and powerful in a way that has driven me to succeed on behalf of my clients.”
“My dad is one of the greats when it comes to trying cases. I learned my craft and developed my ability to cross-examine witnesses as a college student carrying my dad’s briefcase to court. The judges in those days allowed me to sit at counsel table with my dad and watch as he won victories for his clients. He has always been my role model. Seeing the difference he made in people’s lives inspired me to be the best lawyer I could be.”
Tom realizes to be successful as a trial lawyer, you have to understand that it is all about the people, the victims and the families who suffer due to the carelessness or recklessness of others.
With the founding of Kiley Law Group, Tom Jr., his son and a third generation trial lawyer, has entered the fold. “It is gratifying to have Tom Jr. follow the family tradition and join me as a partner in our law firm.” Tom Kiley, Jr. already has his own record of obtaining six- and seven-figure results for his clients and possesses the same passion and dedication as Tom Kiley, Sr. and his grandfather, Daniel P.
