About Me

Kelly A. Broadbent has been practicing law in the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts since 2004. She focuses in the areas of Plaintiff
Personal Injury (including motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents,
premises liability, and products liability), Workers Compensation,
Criminal Law (including OUI, Drug Charges, Assault and Battery), Family
Law (including Divorce, Custody and Child Support Matters), and General
Practice Litigation.
Attorney Broadbent is a lifelong resident of
Grafton, Massachusetts. She attended the Grafton School System and
graduated from Grafton High School in 1997. Attorney Broadbent
continued her education at Boston University, where she obtained a
Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and Sociology. While at Boston
University, Attorney Broadbent was a founding member of Theater for
Engineers, an atypical theater group dedicated to bringing the
performing arts to students with more rigourous class schedules. In
addition, she performed regularly in Worcester, Massachusetts and
Ogunquit, Maine with Booth Productions, a local theater troupe.
Attorney Broadbent was employed at the Tsai Performance Center, where
she worked with clients such as Julia Child, Warren Miller Films, and
HBO to bring performing arts and culture to students at Boston
University.

Attorney Broadbent attended Rutgers University
School of Law in Camden, New Jersey, earning her law degree in 2004. At
Rutgers, Attorney Broadbent was active in the Sports and Entertainment
Law Society. She served as both Vice President of Entertainment and
Treasurer during her time in Law School. Attorney Broadbent was
employed during law school at the Law Office of John A. Klamo, P.C. as
a law clerk, where she actively participated in all aspects of pretrial
preparation.

Following law school, Attorney Broadbent
practiced law in Cambridge, Massachusetts as a Litigation Associate. In
that position, she focused on Personal Injury, Civil Litigation, Family
Law (including Divorce, Child Support and Child Custody), Criminal
Defense, and Traffic Defense. In 2008, Attorney Broadbent started Nelson & Broadbent, where she practiced until 2012. In 2013, Attorney Broadbent formed the partnership Broadbent & Taylor, where she is currently a managing partner. Attorney Broadbent values her
life experiences and uses them to her client's benefit when practicing
law. Dedication, teamwork and persistence are some of the attributes
she developed from her education and litigation experience.

Outside of practicing law, she is actively involved in the performing arts community for Worcester County.
