Our Story

Keane & Beane, P.C. is a premier law firm serving Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Dutchess and Orange Counties in the Hudson Valley, as well as New York City and Long Island. For over 40 years, our team of outstanding attorneys has provided the highest quality legal advice to businesses, individuals, families, school districts, municipalities and non-profit organizations.

Across the board, our clients benefit from the best of two worlds: the breadth and depth of professionals and practice areas usually found only at large law firms, plus the accessibility, personalized service, and loyalty associated with smaller ones. With offices in White Plains, Fishkill, Long Island and New York City, we offer cost-effective representation with the sophistication of a New York City firm.

With this focus, we keep our clients’ objectives foremost, and provide well-managed, cost effective and timely service. At Keane & Beane, you too will benefit from:

  • Attorney Depth and Breadth:  Our professionals span 15 practice areas; many are recognized authorities in their field.
  • Collaborative Culture:  Sharing expertise and perspectives across practice areas, our attorneys offer a multi-dimensional point of view rarely found in regional law firms.
  • Results-Driven:  Keane & Beane litigators win cases that set precedent.
  • Balanced Approach:  The desire to “win” is always tempered by good judgment. If settling out of court is in a client’s best interest, we do not hesitate to advise restraint in moving forward with litigation.

Keane & Beane, P.C. was founded by Edward F. Beane and Thomas Keane in May 1980, with offices in White Plains and Rye NY. The firm was originally part of Keane & Butler, which was founded in 1969 with offices in New York City, White Plains, and Rye. Its founding members, Tom Keane and Tom Butler, were both Rye residents. In 1980, the Westchester offices headed by Tom Keane and Ed Beane decided to go out on their own.

Since then, the four-attorney practice has grown to be one of the largest law firms in Westchester County, with over 30 attorneys whose average tenure is 18 years, providing unparalleled continuity for our clients. To better serve a growing client base, Keane & Beane opened additional offices in Fishkill (2008), New York City (2017) and Long Island (2024).

Founder Edward F. Beane retired from the firm in 2022, after a 42 year tenure. His commitment to quality legal services, dedicated client relationships, and positive outcomes was a main driver in Keane & Beane’s successful growth and continued longevity. Ed was also a firm believer in good corporate citizenship. While a member Keane & Beane, he co-founded “The Exchange Club Child Abuse Prevention Center of New York” (later renamed “April’s Child”) and strongly encouraged our attorneys and staff to seek out ways to better our community, a commitment our firm still prioritizes today.
