A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE IN PERSONAL
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.
INJURY SETTLEMENT AND VERDICTS
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 30+ 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.
Since 1982, the firm has been located in its own building, The Keenan
Building, located adjacent to Centennial Olympic Park and across the
street from CNN Center on Nassau Street in downtown Atlanta. The Keenan
Building has become home to some of the finest trial and personal
injury claim lawyers in Georgia.
For over 30 years the firm has had the opportunity to litigate cases
in 41 states and five foreign countries, with the assistance of local
counsel in those areas. Our trial lawyers in Atlanta are well able
to respond to cases beyond the state borders.
