About me

Practingn law for 26 years.

I am attorney C. Michael Kelly, and I have 26 years of experience helping clients use the legal system to address their family matters.

When clients contact me, I work aggressively to protect their rights at every step of the process. However, unlike attorneys who agree to anything their clients request, I always set realistic expectations for my clients.

I make sure my clients understand what is and is not feasible in family law and dependency matters, and then I work with them to create a plan to achieve those goals.

  • Debra M. Salisbury

    It gives me great pleasure to endorse C. Michael Kelly. I have worked with Attorney Kelly in dependency court and family court for over 15 years, and I have found him to be consistently prepared, knowledgeable in the law, well organized, and a tough advocate in the Court room. He excels in his ability to make concise and persuasive legal arguments and demonstrates excellent trial advocacy skills. I highly recommend Attorney Kelly.
