| Hired Attorney
Happy to of Hired Mr. Kevin Kelly
I hired Kevin Kelly who was referred to me by a friend, I did have reservations in the beginning only because Mr. Kelly's practice was geared more toward Commercial real estate, my case was a personal injury but in spite of what his specialty in law was he did a great job representing me and was tough when he had to be. Although he always consulted with me about decisions I left it up to him to use his professional opinion and was happy in the end that I did.
