Retained Rob in 2009 to take on my parenting plan. Im not going to write an essay here i'll make it somewhat short and to the point. From the beginning i could tell that he was afraid of my Ex's Lawyer, i never really expressed my concern as a parenting plan modification was done through mediation. So the interaction with the opposing party was limited.
When i did have valid issues with the Ex and called him to express the issues he would downplay them, this was of course after it took him sometimes 2 weeks to respond to a phone call or email.
Bottom Line- Very Very slow response time to emails or phone calls and fears other attorneys in the area.
If your just looking for a mediator then he is good with this. Shop around if your looking for a Lawyer who needs to be aggressive when the situation calls for it.

I worked with Rob Kelly for 18 months during a traumatic child custody dispute where my ex-wife was trying to move our son away to a different school district and drastically reduce my custodial time. Rob Kelly came highly recommended by other Family Lawyers and from the moment I met with Rob, I knew he was not only an exceptional lawyer but a good man too. He was honest from the outset regarding my chances of prevailing (not good) and didn't pull any punches during our work together. He was knowledgeable, determined, patient, caring, sympathetic, charming, honest and ultimately very successful as we won every single installment of a protracted case that dragged on for months due to my ex-wife's selfish behaviour. Rob and his excellent Paralegals are a formidable team and I'm glad I hired them and had them on my side. Whilst Rob works to the highest ethical standards, he is also more than ready and capable to stand his ground and fight his clients' corner toe-to-toe when required and because he keeps this part of his arsenal in reserve, it can have a devastating effect on the opposing client and counsel. I'm delighted with the work that Rob and his team did for me, ecstatic at the results they got for me and I recommend Rob Kelly wholeheartedly and unreservedly. I'm a very good father. Rob Kelly is an exceptional lawyer.

Genuine, reliable,honest, and knowledgable should I say more? I started out my search for an attorney from the Seattle area. I was needing to find a quality attorney to represent me for a case that was approaching quickly. I placed several phone calls to attorneys in Whatcom County discouraged as none of them seemed to take a few minutes to learn about my case or show any interest what so ever. When I called the Law Offices of Robert Kelly in my first conversation with Rob I knew he was the one. Rob not only took time to ask questions and learn about my case he cared and best of all followed up. Before I hired him he learned the times of my court hearing and reserved them on his online schedule to ensure he would be available to represent me. Robert and his legal assistant Sara worked right along side me throughout the entire process. Remember I was two hours away and not able to travel back and forth. They communicated via email and phone as I was long distance making the situation the least stressful as possible. Being in a service related industry I have high expectations of service. Rob and Sara went above and beyond throughout my entire family law case. I am VERY SATISFIED with the results. I highly recommend Robert Kelly for legal services you will not be disappointed!
