John J. Sheehan


I was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. The son of an Irish immigrant from County Kerry, Ireland and raised in a working class family, I know and understand the pressures and struggles of people who work hard to support their family.  As a Boston Personal Injury Attorney, I strive to uphold those values every day.

I am fluent in Spanish and am privileged to represent many clients from the Latin American community in the Greater Boston area.

I focus my law practice on helping working people who have been hurt on the job and accident victims who have been injured due to someone else’s negligence. I have had success as a Boston Personal Injury Attorney, securing workers compensation benefits and settlements for my clients.  My specialties include Boston Workers Compensation cases and Car Accidents. I strive to provide my clients with caring and responsive legal representation. I pride myself on serving as a counselor to my clients and a strong advocate on their behalf in Court and at the Department of Industrial Accidents.Photo of Boston Personal Injury Attorney John Sheehan - Boston, MA

I graduated from Suffolk University Law School in 1993 and was admitted to the Massachusetts state bar in December 1993. After graduation, I worked as an associate attorney at the Law Offices of Sherwin L. Kantrovitz, Rainer & Rainer and Shapiro & Associates. From 1999 through 2006, I represented injured workers and accident victims as a founding partner of Georgiou & Sheehan. In 2007, I founded the Law Office of John J. Sheehan where I continue to fight for just and fair compensation for injured workers and accident victims.

I am admitted to the Massachusetts state bar, U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts and the U.S. Court of Appeals, 1st Circuit. I am a member of the American Bar Association (ABA), The American Association for Justice (formerly known as Association of Trial Lawyers of America or ATLA), the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys (MATA), and the Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA).
