  • J L Carpenter

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Mr. Kelly and I first met when I was a prosecutor in Galveston County. Mr. Kelly has always stayed current with the changes in the law and while pleasant, Mr. Kelly moves forward zealously for his clients. Having once been opponents, I would say "Don't mistake kindness for weakness." Mr. Kelly places his clients first and is loyal in his representation. Excellent attorney. Honored to have learned from him as opponents and to presently work with him in our defense bar.
