At the age of 22, Attorney Michael Mahoney broke his neck in a diving accident. He didn’t know how his medical bills would get paid, or if he would ever work again. Because of dedicated professionals at Boston hospitals, he regained his independence. He learned to drive, had kids, and graduated from law school. Because of his unique history, Mahoney, Mike to friends and clients, offers his clients a unique understanding of their situation. His goal is and always has been to maximize financial recoveries for the injured.
In 26 years of practice, Mahoney has amassed an extraordinary record of success, recovering tens of millions of dollars for his clients. Successes include a $10 million dollar settlement in a motor vehicle accident and recently a $7.5 million dollar settlement for a slip and fall.
