    Kelso at first seemed like an honest hard working attorney, however, as the time went by he proved to be the opposite! He was more interested in increasing the bill than genuinely helping me as his client. By the time I realized his true agenda, it was too late because my bill was already WAY over my budget or what we had agreed to! Very shady would not recommend him to anyone!

    The hospitality and warmth provided by Kelso and all the paralegals was top notch. I was overwhelmed with the support and patience from everyone. My ex-husband was a bully, I was afraid and was unsure what to do. Kelso stood by me and provided advice which helped me get out of my situation. My wish is that, if you feel stuck in a marriage the Advocacy Law Center is patient and professional, make sure you contact them. They will get you through your circumstance. It is because of the Advocacy Law Center, that I now have a new lease on life. I am not stuck in an unhealthy environment. Whilst I do not wish for people to go through divorces, if you do need a divorce lawyer, make sure you see Kelso at the Advocacy Law Center.

    This attorney was far more interested in running up a large attorney fee bill than in settling my case. He left me hanging for months on end, forcing me to make calls and write letters to him to try to get him to do something on my behalf before it was too late and the real estate market dropped. The settlement agreement that he drafted and encouraged me to sign left me in a far worse position, forcing me to use a realtor not of my own choosing and forcing the case into arbitration and taking it out of probate court where it could have been handled in a far less costly manner. I also felt that he was being untruthful to me on numerous occasions. The case is still unsettled, and I finally had to hire a new attorney because I felt that he was not handling the case well and was not acting in my best interests, only his own.
