Biography

George N. Keches, a senior and founding partner of Keches Law Group , manages the firm's very active law practice consisting of the Workers' Compensation, Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Departments.

Mr. Keches concentrates his practice in Workers' Compensation and other related areas of the law and is considered to be an authority in the field. He has a reputation for being one of the most aggressive and knowledgeable attorneys practicing law at the Department of Industrial Accidents and the Social Security Administration. Regardless of the case's complexity, Mr. Keches enjoys a near unprecedented success rate. He routinely handles supplemental benefits claims that injured employees may be entitled to under federal Social Security and state Accidental Disability Retirement laws. Mr. Keches says that "representing injured workers when so much is at stake in supporting themselves and their families is the most satisfying career I could have chosen."

He has served as Chair of the Workers' Compensation Committee of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys. He has lectured extensively to attorneys in various legal education forums including the Massachusetts Bar Association and Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys. He has been a television and radio guest addressing issues concerning the rights of injured workers and has been invited to participate in the Trade Association debates concerning changes in the Workers' Compensation laws.

Mr. Keches was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 1975. He is a magna cum laude graduate of Northeastern University and Suffolk University Law School.
