I have had the pleasure of knowing Attorney Kelsey for a few years now and know that he is practical, knowledgeable, and a demonstrated leader in family law mediation and litigation. There are a number of family law practitioners who owe Attorney Kelsey a debt of gratitude for the family law related tools & calculators he has generously provided on his website and through his application released on Apple's iOS. It is my pleasure to endorse attorney Kelsey without any reservation.
