Stephen Kelly
I found Mr. Kelly to be an excellent communicator. He explained a difficult legal process in simple terms and then kept me informed of all the progress along the way. I would not hesitate to retain his services in the future.

Military Law
Excellent experience with Steve on military law. He provided accurate guidance and demished my concerns accurately. He was always available by cell for consultations/advice. I would highly recommend Steve for all the facets of law he practices. His conscientiousness and knowledge is beyond compare.

Wonderful, couldn't have asked for any more....
We called from 250 miles away with an Emergency with our son. Mr. Kelly immediately responded and maintained constant communication throughout. Things were settled very quickly and we were extremely pleased we found him for a lawyer. Great knowledge of Military Law.

"I give Steve my highest endorsement. I was Steve's supervisor for two years when he and I were active duty attorneys in the Air Force. Steve was responsible for providing defense representation in the eastern third of the United States for all Air Force personnel facing courts-martial, nonjudicial discliplinary actions, and involuntary discharge actions. Steve led an amazing cadre of over sixty attorneys and paralegals in providing these services, while maintaining his own individual caseload, representing senior officers facing multi-faceted legal and career difficulties. He is a brilliant litigator, but an even better person. I would gladly work with Steve again, and strongly encourage those in need of criminal representation to avail themselves of Steve's expertise."
