We used Kelly in what turned out to be a three year battle to terminated the rights of my ex-husband and have my current husband adopt my girls. My previous lawyer was less than satisfactory which led me to a search online for Kelly. Kelly's office was in a different county than where we appeared in court but he was always there in a timely manner ready to fight for my girls.
We were very impressed with the integrity of Kelly and his tenacity to our case.
Even when extra work had to be done to allow the termination ( a problem with the laws in Michigan not his representation), Kelly and his team seemed genuinely interested in having our case resolved for the benefit of our girls.
Emails and phone calls were always responded to whenever I had questions with no extra fees, and in the end as the judge stated " Mr. Lambert I commend you on your evidence in this case".
I gladly recommend Kelly to anyone looking for a family law lawyer.

Seemed very knowledgeable and nice at first but, failed to keep me informed about court proceedings. Showed up minutes before court proceedings sometimes late. Charged me a flat rate and allowed me to make a payment arrangement so I guess I got what I paid for. Wouldn't recommend if your case is complex or requires real leg work by an attorney.

I came to attorney Kelly G. Lambert III, because my son was set up by some co-workers at his job. One of them being an ex girlfriend of his. Police was called to investigate and upon talking to each lady, each one giving a different story to the police, the police told my son that he had nothing to worry about that he was closing the case. My son later found out that the police turned the case over to the prosecutor. Mr. Lambert had told us up front what all my son might have to go through. Mr. Lambert went through the the police report and noted all the inconsistencies and lies and was able to get the prosecutor to drop the case. Mr. Lambert did a great job. My son is in his early 20's and did not need a criminal record just cause he broke up with a woman.

I hired Kelly to represent me in a custody/child support case. He showed up late for every proceeding when he did show up. On two occasions he didn't show up at all. He refused to keep me updated about my case. Each time I called to find out the status of my pending case, he told his staff person to tell me he was in a meeting. At one point I physically went to his office to get updated and he told me that he's busy and that if I keep bothering him he threatened to withdraw from my case.
He held a conference call with the judge on my case without my consent. I asked to at least be present on the phone for the call. He refused. He held the phone conference with the judge and my ex-husband's lawyer. When I asked what the conversation was about he said the judge wants him to withdraw from my case and that the judge hates me. Then he withdrew from my case.
After he withdrew from my case, I demanded my paperwork from my case. He refused to give it to me. He even accepted more paperwork after he withdrew from my case, and of course he did not forward it to me or my new attorney. Then Kelly sent me threatening emails.
I still do not have my paperwork many months later and am strongly considering going to the state bar for help.

Had a very difficult bankruptcy, was in dange of loosing home to foreclosure. Mr. Lambert was able to stop the sheriff sale with the bankruptcy, which allowed me additional time to work out a modification and save my home. In addition, he was able to stop garnishments from my taxes and paychecks and get a significant amount of debt discharged. Highly recommend.

Kelly represented me in a couple of child custody cases & he represented me quite well. Before the actual court date, he went over some valuable information that was very helpful, & walked me through what will happen if it ever went to trial. When time to appear in court, he was on time, & the end result was quite fair. I would hire Kelly Lambert again if ever needed him in a similar case, & would have the honor & priviledge to refer him to another person.

I hired Kelly Lambert to represent me in a child custody/child support case and it was the worse decision that I could have made. He was very hard to get in contact with and he does not return calls. After I paid him in full to get started almost nothing happened. I had to camp out at his office just to see him and nothing was ever ready. I was told one lie after another. At court hearings there would always be someone different and when he did finally show up he wasn’t prepared.
There was an one attorney that showed up at one of the hearings, he seemed to have everything under control and had a handle on the situation however when our next court date came around Kelly showed up instead and derailed all the progress that was made by telling the Judge that he wasn’t familiar with what was going on because he had not been in court during the previous hearing and that he had to filed orders that was entered in month prior months. Old orders had not been filed so any new order was not able to be entered. He told me that orders had been filed and they were not and this happened on many occasions (He created a bigger mess than before he took the case). You would think since he was my lawyer he would have conferred with the last 2 representatives that he sent in his place.
I got blindsided by him more than once and nothing was ever handled. After I had enough I fired him and asked for all the documents that I had given him. He tried to stall a few times by saying give him another chance however nothing changed. He tried to get me to sign papers when I released him that stated he had done a good job and everything was settled and that I was happy with his services. I refused to sign anything to that effect...he finally gave me my paperwork. His staff is nice and covers his ass well. Beware before you hire this guy...

I had a somewhat complicated Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This presented no problem for Mr. Lambert, who walked me through the entire process, protected all of my assets and ensured my debts were discharged. Great office to work with for any legal matter.

Kelly Lambert worked very hard for me and my case was completely dismissed! He did not stop working to get me out of the trouble I placed myself in. I was shocked and elated when I found out the case was being dropped. I had already confessed, video tape evidence and I paid restitution at the scene of the incident--then he got me off free and clear!!! Totally amazing
