Thank you!
I consulted with Kelly on an imminent and (for me) confusing tax matter. Her assistant listened patiently and passed my info on to Kelly, who called me back within one day. She gave me valuable advice on the phone and was very knowledgeable. I wound up not needing to pursue my case, but if I ever have an issue again I will call her for sure! Thanks so much, top marks.

Excellent lawyer, thorough, and dependable.
Kelly was enthusiastic about our case from the minute we spoke on the phone. Kelly reassured us with her in depth knowledge of our case, the law and she was extremely helpful in her legal advice. She took the time to hear us out and fought for us and won our case! She also made a house visit to wrap up the paperwork, saving us a day off and travel to her firm. Doesn't get better than Kelly! My husband and I would recommend her highly and will vouch for her sharp intelligence, experience and legal maturity.

Protecting assets
Kelly helped me form my LLC's. I am a bit of a procrastinator, and have been meaning to set them up for several years. With Kelly's help, I finally moved forward to complete the process & I feel very relieved to have them in place. She did a great job following up with me & being clear about my "next steps" in the process.

Lawyer Extraordinaire!!!
Kelly's experience, drive and compassion is far too extensive for me to attempt to describe adequately. I have dealt with many attorney's in my day and some have been very good. if they were a 10 , Kelly is a 100. I was involved in some very nasty IRS issues which Kelly successfully navigated my family through. My gratitude is endless (just wish my checkbook was).

Municipal lawsuit
Kelly was excellent. Although she is starting out in her long and I am sure successful career, she was very helpful. She always kepy us well informed and went above an beyond in our case. I would highly recommend her as an attorney.
