About Us

Kenney & Sams, P.C. is a boutique litigation law firm representing individuals, businesses, and public authorities in disputes and risk management. We are based in Boston, and our clients are located throughout New England and across the U.S. The Firm distinguishes itself from other law firms by the experience, accomplishment, and leadership of its attorneys. Our reputation is based on delivering positive results while maintaining respectful, collaborative and professional relationships at all times.

Winning Attitude

We’re a team of experienced trial lawyers who approach what we do for clients as if we’re building and presenting a case for the courtroom. We call that mindset “Trial-think” because the experience, preparation and strategy we bring to optimizing leverage and outcome at trial can be equally powerful in preventing disputes from occurring in the first place.


The core value and foundation of the success we’ve achieved for our clients is without question…passion. We understand that disputes are disruptive. That’s why we’re constantly laser-focused on helping you manage and reduce your risks and protect your interests. When litigation can’t be avoided, we respond immediately and activate the right resources to evaluate your case and outline a strategy to resolve it efficiently and effectively.


Part of what makes us unique is our team approach to planning and executing case strategy. Every Monday morning our attorneys meet to review all of the Firm’s new cases. Although specific attorneys are assigned to each case, these case review meetings leverage our collective knowledge, experience and relationships to ensure that we leave no stone unturned. We focus on effective, quality representation leading to positive results. Our reputation is based on delivering that promise while maintaining respectful, collaborative and professional relationships at all times.

Professional Excellence

To help implement these core values, Kenney & Sams places a high priority on providing continuing education to its attorneys on the civil process, trial practice and on the latest legal developments. To that end, directors conduct quarterly seminars on discovery, motion and trial practice or on substantive areas of the law to ensure that all lawyers possess the necessary skills to advance a case through its stages to a successful conclusion. This also ensures that each client’s case receives the attention to detail the firm expects. In addition, attorneys may be asked to present on a recent legal development at one of the firm’s weekly meetings. These presentations provide oral advocacy opportunities while the firm’s lawyers receive information to guide them in their practice.
