Basch & Keegan Awards and Achievements for 2015

Collage of the attorneys of Basch & Keegan and their awards and honors in 2015.

The start of a New Year is a great time to look back and reflect the previous year’s accomplishments. Our four attorneys are proud of what we did in 2015, and we all look forward to doing even more in 2016. Awards are nice to receive – but what really makes us feel great is knowing that we successfully settled hundreds of personal injury and medical malpractice cases for residents of Kingston and the Hudson Valley.
