The best
I got a speeding ticket on Rte 24 for doing 102 mph. It was late at night and driving home from work. I was trying to get home quick because I was very tired. I got a $255 ticket. Attorney broadbent got it dismissed so quick I couldn’t believe it. She gets 5 stars from me.

Incredibly helpful
Needed help with a speeding ticket and attorney Broadbent went above and beyond, from miscommunication with the court, to delays, to appeals. I can't recommend her enough.

Absolutely the Best!!!
I am so grateful to have found Attorney Broadbent and have been using her for many years. She has saved my driving record and ability to have a license multiple times!! She is very reliable and has traveled the state to represent me. She is so personable and truly cares about the outcome for her clients. I've contacted her at the very last minute and she still manages to come through. I wish I didn't have to use her as often as I do, but it's so assuring to know I have her on my side.

Attorney Broadbent Was Wonderful
Attorney Broadbent was wonderful. All of my questions were answered, she was personable before, during, and after the trial. I am thankful to have worked with her via the Ticket Clinic. My citation was dismissed, thank you Ticket Clinic and Attorney Broadbent!

Thank you Kelly for the help
I want to thank Kelly for helping me out with tough citation that I got a while back. The process throughout the situation was easy and smooth with Kelly's help and guidance. During the hearing it went fast and simple and I was found not responsible for the citation thanks to Kelly. I would highly recommend Kelly as your representation for traffic court and anyone who needs help maintaining a clean driving record.

Highly Recommend
I could not be happier with Ms. Broadbent’s representation. The result could not have been better, complete dismissal of two non-trivial traffic violations. But the perfect result is only part of my recommendation. Ms. Broadbent is a consummate professional as well as a pleasure to interact with. She kept me updated throughout the process, informed on what to expect and provided helpful guidance on navigating the Massachusetts motor vehicle system above and beyond the handling of the traffic violations themselves. I am an attorney myself and am confident that Ms. Broadbent will provide the highest quality representation on a broad range of matters.

Amazing Attorney
Last Year I was targeted by some very determined and corrupt Police Officers who issued me 3 citations in a matter of days a part. I appealed the citations and Kelly handled my Judges hearing in Northampton District Court. She was professional and also not afraid to challenge the officers which after 3 months of the case being under advisement, Kelly was able to get all 3 citations dismissed entirely which were false from the start. I Would and will recommend to Kelly to anyone with A traffic citation, She was also very attentive and helpful with my whole case.

Dismissed Traffic Violation
I got a ticket in August 2019 and because of the pandemic the case got in front of the magistrate in July 2021. Kelly kept the record for 2 years and was successfully able to dismiss the ticket. This was great caring about the client despite of the time lapse and ultimately dismiss the charge.

“Hands down the best traffic court attorney out there. Miss Broadbent represented me through a very difficult time in my life with COVID-19 and other political issues going on in my life. I highly recommend anyone to Attorney Broadbent to solve traffic related offenses. Her professionalism got all 3 of my traffic offenses dismissed on our first court date. She looks out for your best interests and has your back the entire time. Thank you again Miss Broadbent for absolutely everything!” ~Jeremiah Shivers 1st Ranger Battalion (Vet.)

Highly Recommended
Hired Kelly to fight a "speeding" ticket that didn't seem fair. She didn't overload me with small talk and details... instead, she told me what to do, and more importantly, what not to do. During the initial hearing I was found not responsible, but the crabby prosecutor appealed the magistrate's decision, to our surprise. During the final hearing the court had technical issues, but Kelly stayed on point throughout. She was punctual and confident, while keeping it real, and easing my anxiety. It was impressive to watch Kelly drop all the right questions one after another during the examination. Once it was time to shine, Kelly went full boss mode, spouted some type of lawyer jargon, and just like that I was found not responsible. I still don't know what she did, but it worked. Hire her. You want her working for you, not against you. Trust me!

Teen Mom
Kelly represented my teen driver with his first ticket and was able to resolve for us out of state. We had a lot of concerns but she didn’t rush my questions and we were pleased with the outcome. She was very understanding and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again.

Knows the law
I consulted with Kelly on a criminal matter and she gave me practical and sound legal advice. She immediately understood my situation which is a complicated matter, and broke the matter down to its simplest component, helping me understand it more clearly. She has skills. Put her to work for you.

Outstanding Attorney
Kelly helped me get 2 tickets dismissed. She is punctual and effective. Whenever we spoke, she kept me up to date and answered all my questions, literally all of them. To top things off, her delivery on court day was nothing short of impressive. Don't think twice about hiring her, she is the best out there.

Would highly recommend
I retained Kelly to fight a speeding ticket in Clinton District Court. Kelly got it dismissed in the first magistrate hearing. I highly recommend Kelly for contesting any traffic tickets.

Dedicated and thorough
I hired Kelly to defend me in a traffic citation, and she had the ticket dismissed. She spent time understanding my situation and my needs, and crafted a workable defense which resulted in a good outcome. I thought the fee was fair, and she handled all the details. While I am hoping NOT to need her again, I would absolutely call on her if needed.

I have used Kelly for traffic tickets as well as a business litigation issue. She is excellent and very fair. Always on time which is my #1 complaint of prior attorneys. She is straightforward, honest and will tell you what to expect.

Speeding ticket
Kelly's office was terrific. I got my first speeding ticket a few months ago and wanted to appeal it. Kelly prepared me before the hearing and told me what to expect. My ticket was dismissed after about a 5 minute hearing with the magistrate. I am very happy with Kelly's professionalism and her ability and would not hesitate to hire her again!
