About Me

Kellam comes from a long line of Tidewater natives and is fortunate to continue to reside in this area practicing law.  Kellam has been actively litigating cases in the various Courts around Hampton Roads for well over a decade.


 


His practice is paperless with cloud-based systems to enable immediate and remote access for himself and his clients.  He is able to utilize digital technologies for legal research and litigation in the courtroom, such as the use of a tablet for case presentations. Kellam is also able to harness the power of social media to inform the public on his practice areas and keep in touch with his clients.


 


As his profile details more fully, Kellam regularly writes and speaks on his practice areas, keeping up to date on changes in the law and educating the public and other attorneys.


 


Away from the office, Kellam enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter.  He also keeps up with technology as a hobby and to integrate into his practice.

  • Radlyn Christine Mendoza

    Kellam is the only lawyer that I know who handles the complex laws dealing with identity theft - how to protect you and how to correct mistakes on a credit report. Kellam not only advocates for his clients affected by identity theft, but he also educates the public so we can protect ourselves against it. His seminars and accompanying materials he gives out is well worth attending. I highly recommend Kellam.
