Launching Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers

Kelly attended New England Law. He knew that after receiving his law degree that he wanted to launch a firm with a singular focus: Client service.

Kelly concentrates his own practice primarily on his plaintiff’s personal injury cases. He has helped to guide resolutions that have reached six-figure outcomes for his clients. In all, he has achieved settlements for his clients totaling more than $1 million.

While providing zealous advocacy for clients, Kelly is also committed to the firm’s credo of client service, which includes a unique offer: a 30-day, risk-free, guarantee. In the unlikely event that a client is dissatisfied within the first 30 days, they may have their file returned to them by the firm free of charge.

Finding Success in Client Service

Kelly has always stressed the emphasis Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers places on client service. “Almost every decision we make is geared toward providing an elevated experience for our clients. Many of our clients are in pain and in need of prompt, aggressive legal support. Our clients are our number one. They always will be.”

According to Kelly, this attention to client service is proving to be a successful one.

While their primary focus is on the firm and its clients, Kelly says the firm is also committed to the North End neighborhood where they are located. He volunteers as youth baseball coach in the area and is also active in Neon Fest, a fundraiser organized in honor of a classmate of Kelly’s from New England Law in Boston. All proceeds from the event are used to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital.

Mike Kelly was included as being one of the top 10 personal injury attorneys in Massachusetts by NAOPIA in 2019 and 2021. Michael Kelly was also featured as being one of the top 16 car accident lawyers in Boston by Expertise. He was included in the top 40 trial attorneys under 40 by The National Trial Lawyers, and he is listed as a Rising Star on Super Lawyers.

In his limited spare time, Kelly enjoys golf and exercise.
