    Deanna is a talented and hard working trial attorney. I have been privileged to work with her on several cases, and have been very impressed with her skills in and out of the court room. Her keen intellect, exceptional insight, work ethic, and background as a prosecutor make her a fantastic criminal defense attorney. I highly recommend and endorse this lawyer.

  • Loren M. Dickstein

    Deanna Kelley is an outstanding criminal defense lawyer and a well respected litigator. When she was a prosecutor, many defense lawyers dreaded her courtroom prowess and ability to communicate and persuade a jury. Deanna's ability to achieve amazing results for her clients is well known and many defense lawyers seek out her advice when an issue they are facing is unusually complex or difficult. Judges and prosecutors know that when Deanna Kelley appears in court, she will do everything possible to win! I highly endorse and respect Attorney Deanna Kelley.
