Since the inception of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in 1988, Kevin Conway’s firm has focused its entire practice to representing persons in the Vaccine Program. During this time, the firm’s efforts have resulted in millions of dollars in awards for its clients.
Kevin is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame for his undergraduate degree, and Georgetown University Law Center for his law degree. Prior to establishing the firm, Kevin’s past legal experience includes serving as counsel for the New York/New Jersey Waterfront Crime Commission, CBS News, and the CBS Television and Radio Networks. Kevin was also a partner at Schlichtmann, Conway & Crowley during the noted “Woburn Trial,” when the firm represented eight (8) children with leukemia, allegedly caused by drinking wells contaminated by WR Grace and Beatrice Foods. The suit formed the basis of Jonathan Harr’s book, “A Civil Action,” required reading in many law schools, and the movie “A Civil Action,” starring John Travolta (actor Tony Shalhoub played Kevin in the movie).
Kevin is a member of the Vaccine Program’s Process Committee, former member of the Mediation Committee and the past president of the Vaccine Injured Petitioners Bar Association. He assisted in the preparation of the Program’s Guidelines. In addition, he served as a member on Vaccine Program Panels for the American Bar Association and the Court of Federal Claims. Kevin is currently a member of the Court of Federal Claims Bar Association, the Vaccine Injured Petitioners Bar Association and the American Association of Justice. As the firm’s senior partner, he has practiced extensively before the Vaccine Program, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. He is an adjunct professor at Boston College.
