Our background in law enforcement allows us to quickly identify the flaws and holes in the case against you. The earlier we get involved in your defense, the better.
Former Police Officers & Soldiers on Your Side
Founding attorneys Joseph Keegan and Stephen Novick are both former police officers, and know the criminal justice system from both sides. This is a great advantage if you are facing criminal accusations. Our background in law enforcement allows us to quickly identify any flaws and holes that might be in your case. For years, we saw criminal cases from the perspective of a badge. Now, our goal is to protect and serve those that have been arrested and accused.
We also have the advantage of having former military members on our team of Boston criminal defense attorneys.

This heavily translates into the kind of service that Keegan & Novick provides its clients. We don't compromise when it comes to our clients. Part of not compromising is our willingness and ability to go to court for our clients.
