Tom was able to successfully guide me through an unexpected bankruptcy. It was a particularly difficult time in my life, and Tom was professional and encouraging. He thoroughly explained all matters at hand, and patiently answered any questions, (or worries) that I had. My time in the courtroom was very brief and he backed me up every step of the way. The whole experience itself was a lot smoother and quicker than I thought it would be. I have no complaints. Going through bankruptcy with a lawyer like Tom on my side was about as good as that scenario could've went for me. Ultimately, he dealt with every issue of my case, and I would recommend him to anyone in need of a trustworthy, sensible lawyer.

It isn't often that you find an attorney who returns your phone calls, responds to your emails and does a wonderful job at representing you. Mr. Kelly did exactly that as we had to navigate our bankruptcy. During one of our most difficult times, Mr. Kelly was able to walk us through each step of the process and we always felt as if we had someone in our court. Thank you Tom Kelly, III.

After being hunted down by creditors and feeling hopeless, you finally feel like someone has your back when you work with Tom. I hope I never have to go through Bankruptcy again, but if I did I would use Tom again in a heartbeat. My case was ridden with more problems than most, and Tom was always right on top of things, assertive and pushing things through to completion.

Tom helped us through a very difficult time for us financially. We declared bankruptcy after some life-altering events. He was clear and straightforward in his communication, both concerning what was required of us and what we could expect going forward. At the same time, he was compassionate and kept our joint sense of humor. There was even laughter at our hearing with the bankruptcy trustee.
Additionally, Tom went out of his way to set us up with other resources that could help us organize our life going forward.
I recommend Tom without hesitancy or qualification.

In retrospect, I could not have been more pleased with Tom's legal work.
It was the year 2010. Like many Californians I found myself in personal and financial ruin.
I could not have navigated the myriad of legal options, strategies and implications without his assistance.
You will find Tom's legal mindedness is solid, above board and easy to follow. At no point did I feel like I was just another client. Tom welcomes questions and was an engaged listener while keeping client expectations clear and realistic. His person and demeanor is professional and personable.
It is without hesitation I would recommend seeking his expertise if you should require legal representation.

Mr. Kelly was very nice made me feel comfortable in a situation that was very uncomfortable. He is easy to talk to and works hard to get the results you need.

In 2008, my wife and I, like millions of other people, needed help remodifying our mortgage. My income had been cut in half, and our son had HUGE medical bills due to a rare disease that he was diagnosed with. Our bank received "billions" of dollars specifically to help couples like us. The bank had us sign a "trial agreement" where we made 3 lower payments that we could afford, and the agreement promised us a loan remodification IF we fulfilled our part of the agreement. After months of stalling, the bank finally approved our loan remodification, and they even sent us a letter congratulating us on our loan remodification. In the next few months, while waiting for our "Remod" package, the bank sold our note, and this new bank refused to honor our "remod" agreement that we had with our previous bank. This new bank foreclosed on our house. We ended up losing our house. I wish we had found Tom Kelly prior to losing our house.
Tom Kelly came in, really listened to what had happened to us, and agreed to take on our case. There is not enough room here to express how complicated our case was, but I can say that Tom Kelly put up a major fight against every trick and obstacle that the opposition threw at him. At one point, he was fighting against at least 9 other attorneys. This lawsuit was against a multi-billion dollar bank who thought they could squash a "little" guy like Tom Kelly. I believe most attorneys would have given up or given in, but Tom Kelly is a fighter. He fights for what is right. All along he kept telling us that our bank had wronged us, and he was going to make it right! After a 2 year battle, and with our case appearing like it would go to trial in May of 2015, the mean, old, huge conglomerate bank caved in. Goliath had been taken down by Tom Kelly. The bank settled out of court, and my wife and I will be receiving a sizeable settlement check, ALL because of Tom Kelly. He is an amazing attorney who has a wealth of legal knowledge surrounding him. His Father is an attorney. His brother is an attorney. His uncle, cousins, brother-in-law, aunts, and just about every family member is an attorney!! Prior to finding Tom Kelly, I tried to meet with at least 5 other attorneys who would not even listen to ALL the facts surrounding my case. Tom Kelly did. And my wife and I are so grateful. You will be also!

Mr. Kelly helped be get through my bankruptcy with excellent advice and guidance. He took the "Worry Weight" (paperwork and such) and with with his expertize, counseled me through my bankruptcy start to finish. I would recommend Tom to anyone needing a bankruptcy lawyer.

Thomas helped me and my mother with bankruptcy after my mother suffering with Alzheimer lost our family estate and me and my husband had to close our business of 20 years and we all had to move out of the property since we where facing foreclosure. It was a result of the economic down fall in 2008 and there was no other way out. Thomas looked with us at all our options and we chose the best one at that time.
Thomas was so helpful leading us through such difficult times with heart, knowledge and support.
I highly recommend him and wish him the very best.

Tom made me feel protected as much as possible. He was patient and made sure I understood everything. Quick responses to my calls or emails. Was fair in his billing. Was knowledgable and experienced. I feel I can count on him.
