Boston MA Personal Injury and Criminal Defense Attorney
Law Offices Of William D. Kickham
I specialize in two fields of Massachusetts law: Plaintiffs' personal injury law, and criminal defense. I've been an attorney since 1988, My first job after law school was Public Affairs Counsel for the Massachusetts academy of Trial Attorneys, where I advocated for plaintiffs' civil justice rights, and against tort reform. I later briefly worked for the insurance industry. I am considered a specialist on the subject of tort reform, and I frequently appear in the media (regional and national) on the subjects of tort law and criminal law. This talent stems from my serving as a media spokesperson for several years on legal issues, and from my Executive Producing and hosting my own cable TV show, called "At The Bar", in the south suburban Boston cable market in the 1990's and mid-2000's.

On the civil side of my practice, I represent clients who have suffered serious and often catastrophic injuries, as well as fatalities, due to the negligence of another party(ies). This is a very rewarding dedication, as when a client has been seriously injured, whether in a Massachusetts car accident, a Massachusetts construction site accident, an event involving Massachusetts medical negligence, a traumatic brain injury, a Massachusetts fire, a Massachusetts chemical explosion, or a job site injury (workers' compensation), the reality is that insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying an injury victim. Without an experienced and dedicated Massachusetts injury attorney, they'd be left to fend for themselves. I consider being hired by my injury clients to be both a compliment and a serious professional responsibility.

On the criminal defense side of my practice, I know from many years experience, that people can find themselves arrested or accused of a crime very suddenly. Most of my clients are normal, law-abiding people who found themselves in a situation they never imagined, such as domestic violence or a sex offense. I can assure anyone that just because a person is accused of a crime, does not mean that they are legally or factually guilty of it. As a Massachusetts criminal defense attorney, I take great pride in fighting "tooth and nail" for my criminal defense clients.

I welcome anyone reading this page who may have been injured due to someone else's negligence in Massachusetts, or who may be charged with a Massachusetts criminal offense

Born in Boston, raised in Brookline, Massachusetts. I'm a graduate of Brookline High School, and went on to study Economics and Politics at Boston College, where I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Economics. I studied law at Suffolk University Law School in Boston, where I went to school full-time days, and worked part-time nights. I know what it's like to work hard. I'm a member of "Who's Who In America," and at age 22 was a recipient of Outstanding Young Men In America , and was a Trustee Scholarship Recipient at Suffolk University Law School.

I'm the fifth out of ten children of Irish-Catholic parents. I ran for and won elected office in Brookline when I was 20 years old, as Town Meeting Member. I've accomplished a lot in my life, but none of it means much without someone to love and who loves you back, and that is my wife, Debbi K. Kickham. I'm grateful for all that I have, and try my best to give back to the world around me, and to all my clients. One of the several reasons that I fight so hard for my clients, is that I am grateful for all that I have been given in life.
