When I was faced with obtaining a lawyer for my divorce proceedings (and other legal matters stemming from it) a friend gave me Kelly's card and told me to giver her a call. After our first consultation, the thought of looking further for someone to represent me never entered my mind. You wont find a stronger advocate for your rights than Kelly. She will fight tooth and nail to get you what you deserve. The staff is warm and friendly, and always put my mind at ease when challenges presented themselves (which they often did). I highly recommend Kelly and her associates for any legal matter.

Nobody wants to deal with divorce period. Mrs. Rocco's office dealt with my case and my personal issues very effectively and as efficiently as possible...all while understanding my concerns over my children (which were most important). She listened and guided me appropriately with understanding what my choices meant...the law is a bit confusing and trusting someone to navigate you through it is important. ..especially when it comes to your children.
