Review Kelly Scanlan

About Me

After graduating from Indiana University School of Nursing—Indianapolis in 1997, Kelly began her professional career working as a registered nurse for Wishard Health Services. Kelly has nursing experience in several areas including pediatrics, obstetrics, gynecology and home health care. Kelly worked as a registered nurse for more than seven years before going back to school and earning her J.D. from Indiana University - Indianapolis in 2005.

Kelly’s experience as a registered nurse and previous legal experience representing doctors, nurses, hospitals and other health care providers has given her a unique perspective on how law relates to the practice of medicine and the lives of seriously injured people.

  • Aaron James Myers

    I often refer personal injury and medical malpractice clients to Kelly and her office. I also have experience working with her on a co-counsel basis. Mr. Scanlan is a thorough and tough litigator, and I would recommend her to anyone seeking help with a PI or med mal issue.
