Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy There are plenty of lawyers who represent insurance companies, big corporations, and the government. At KJC Law Firm, we pride ourselves in representing people. We became lawyers to help find justice in our society, and we think that means helping individual people in their struggles with big, powerful, impersonal interests. We are here to help individuals in need, people who are facing the worst days of their lives, people who need help.

We understand what it is like to struggle against the odds. When she was in her 30’s, the firm’s founder and Managing Attorney Kathy Jo Cook found herself divorced with four children, working as a hairdresser, with only a high school education. She worked her way through college and law school in 6 years and became such a successful lawyer that her peers elected her President of the Women’s Bar Association in 2008 and this year, President of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys. All of our lawyers are people before they are lawyers; they can identify with what you are going through.

The people who are opposing your right to recover damages are experienced lawyers, highly paid and with limitless resources. You need a lawyer who can meet that challenge. At KJC Law Firm, we have the credentials, the resources, and the dedication to even up that power imbalance and to win the fight.

KJC Law Firm was founded and is led by Kathy Jo Cook, an experienced and successful trial and appellate attorney, and one of the most well known and well respected attorneys in Massachusetts. She was recognized by the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and by Boston Magazine as one of the best attorneys in Massachusetts, and she has been elected by her peers as a “SuperLawyer” every year since 2008. The Firm gets regular advice and assistance from Professor Timothy Wilton, a highly regarded law professor with nearly 50 years of experience practicing, teaching, and training other lawyers in trial and appellate practice. Professor Wilton has three degrees from Harvard, including his law degree and an advanced law degree. He is the Director of the Trial and Appellate Advocacy Concentration at Suffolk University Law School, which has produced more trial lawyers and judges in Massachusetts and throughout New England than any other law school.

We know that each case is unique. That’s why we don’t take an assembly line approach like some law firms. We will talk to you. We will come visit your home and see what your life is like. We will help you identify all the ways your life has been impacted, and we will help you find the best words to tell the jury about it.

Our team looks for creative and imaginative legal strategies to get you the best result. We also recognize that each case is extremely important to the person who has been injured, cheated or discriminated against. We take a limited number of cases so that we can give your case the attention you deserve. We will answer your phone calls and respond to your concerns.

Call us for a free consultation. You will be glad you did.
