Michael Kelly represented me in pivotal “bet the company” damage claim against a major wall street firm. The defendants and their lawyers were less than “honorable” in defending the despicable acts approved at the highest levels of the corporation. After nearly two and one-half years of international discovery, dozens of depositions, court delays, frivolous appeals and challenge to a trial court judge, the matter came to trial. Defendants hired private investigators, jury consultants, dozens of mock jurors, media consultants, trial testimony preparation consultants and conducted mock trials. Mr. Kelly and his legal team accepted every deceitful and devious tactic of the defendants with respect for legal tenets, principles and ethics. After nearly two months of trial, Mr. Kelly prevailed on my behalf. I was thrilled with Mr. Kelly’s legal expertise and calm demeanor. He was always prepared and several steps ahead of the deceptive acts of defendants and their lawyers. The defendants did not fare well and filed for bankruptcy within less than a year after trial. Michael Kelly is a very fine and honorable advocate for his clients.
Michael Kelly represented my class in a high-profile class action suit vs. Verizon Wireless. The cell company promoted Bluetooth functionality that was, in fact, intentionally crippled in its product. Kelly's firm acted quickly and decisively to bring the case against Verizon and forge a settlement that I am sure will be effective in moderating future claims. Kelly's team kept the big picture in sight, throughout a highly technical case. And, they proved highly effective against a deep-pocketed adversary. I highly recommend for others who find themselves similarly situated and in search of justice.
