Kathy Jo began her legal career at Lubin & Meyer, P.C. during law school. She joined Keches & Mallen, P.C. thereafter, where she handled complex claims on behalf of injured plaintiffs for 13 years. Kathy Jo litigated the first successful claim in Massachusetts to hold that an insurance company’s meritless appeal of an injured worker’s verdict was a bad faith insurance practice and violated the Consumer Protection Statute, securing the original judgment of more than 3 million dollars and an additional 4.2 million dollar punitive judgment against the insurance company for that practice. In 2010, she prevailed in Law v. Griffith, 457 Mass. 349 (2010),a case which was deemed to be one of the most important decisions of the year and one which continues to aid plaintiffs seeking damages at trial for medical expenses.
