I'm a licensed attorney with over 11 years of experience in everything ranging from commercial litigation, to estate planning, to real estate matters. From 2008-2011, I took a wonderful break to have a family - but found that I missed the challenges that come with the practice of law, as well as the interaction with clients and peers.
Today my focus is on real estate transactions - handling everything from the $35,000 REO purchase, to the sale of million dollar homes, to the purchase and sale of commercial properties well in excess of a million dollars. I always take my clients needs and expectations into consideration and strive to respond quickly to them and get them the answers they want. A real estate transaction, at any level, is ridden with potential pitfalls. I am committed to educating my clients on these pitfalls and the protections they need in place, and to making the transaction as smooth as possible.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
Kelly is an experienced, quick and smart attorney. Real estate transactions can be tricky, but Kelly always keeps her cool and finds a solution to problems that clients encounter. Kelly accomplishes the task that many lawyers can't -- driving a hard bargain, always with a smile on her face. With her, buying a home is something to celebrate, not something to stress about. I highly recommend her.
