The Keenan Law Firm opened in 1975 in Atlanta, Georgia. Before taking personal injury settlement claims, the firm served primarily as a criminal defense firm. While Mr. Keenan built a successful criminal defense firm as a trial lawyer in Atlanta, he experienced a moral dilemma representing guilty persons. In early 1980, as Atlanta labored under the crisis of an epidemic of murdered and missing children, Mr. Keenan began a pro bono representation of the mothers of these children. He advised them in civil disobedience activities in order to bring public attention to the crisis and support for their belief that a single predator was responsible for killing all the children.
Mr. Keenan’s prominent role in this crisis led to an invitation to appear on the Phil Donahue Show, during which Mr. Donahue erroneously introduced Mr. Keenan as “one of the country’s leading child advocates.” The title stuck and Mr. Keenan embarked on a 40+ years career representing children in catastrophic personal injury settlements and wrongful death cases. He continues to invest significant time and energy and to donate his expertise as a personal injury claim lawyer in pro bono activities for children.
Many things have changed over the three decade history of The Keenan Law Firm, but one thing has not changed: the commitment to excellence and justice on behalf of its clients. We engage only the top trial lawyers in Atlanta and whether we represent you in a personal injury settlement case or another legal matter, Keenan attorneys will provide you with careful, attentive, and thorough professional service.
