Dave Flanagan


Dave Flanagan of Flanagan & Associates has established himself as a multi-talented litigator who is capable of taking on any type of case and handling it with the utmost profenciency and expertise. Born and raised in Quincy, Massachusetts, he desires to give back to the town that helped him become who he is today. He has a strong concentration in criminal law but also handles clients with OUI charges, family and estate planning as well as personal injury claims. He graduated from the New England School of Law in 2003 and went on to pass the Massachusetts Bar Exam. While in law school, he was on the staff of the New England School of Law Journal on Criminal and Civil Confinement that helped him better understand the realistic aspects of law and how the courtroom truly affects individual's lives.

Mr. Flanagan did not immediately become a lawyer, but eventually realized it was where he belonged in the year 2003. Initially, he was a licensed private investigator where he was in charge of investigating insurance fraud claims for different insurance companies. In the year 1994, Mr. Flanagan began working as a private investigator for the Claims Bureau. He directed investigatory techniques, such as surveillance, to help insurance companies discover insurance fraud. In the year 1999, he began working for Liberty Mutual Insurance as an insurance adjuster and went on to open his own insurance claims investigation company.

Mr. Flanagan soon realized this was not his true passion and immediately after being admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 2003, he founded Keegan & Flanagan, LLP. Today, Mr. Flanagan prides himself on offering the highest level of personalized attention and dedication to all of his clients. He is willing to go all the way for his clientele, even if that means going to trial in order to give them the greatest opportunity for freedom. His sole reason for pursuing law was to help people and he takes that dedication very seriously.
