In February of 2009, I was arrested in Philadelphia and charged with DUI. Unfortunately, it was not the first time this had happened. Facing significant jail time and the subsequent loss of my job, career, home and personal freedom, I reached out to Mr. Kellis after reading about his experience online. Steven agreed to take my case and thus began our journey. In the months that followed, an additional charge of felony fleeing was added by the DA's office further complicating my case and seriously jeopardizing any kind of favorable outcome. Obviously, I was in an arduous position with little hope. In the end, it came down to Steven's acute knowledge of of the law, his experience on both sides of the bench, his excellent negotiation skills and his ability to think quickly and act precisely when presented with opportunities in court. Thanks to Steven's exemplary representation, the felony fleeing charge was ultimately dropped and a plea was negotiated resulting in minimal disruption to my personal life. I chose to work with the right attorney whose experience proved to be far more valuable than I could have imagined. Without Steven's help, I'd most likely be sitting in jail right now - a sobering fact which I am reminded of every day. If you are in any kind of trouble with DUI/DWI, you need an experienced attorney to represent you in court. Give Mr. Kellis a call - you'll be glad you did.

Without reservations do I recommend Steven Kellis. I was facing the real possibility of 60- 90 days jail time and an extended period without a drivers license due to two DUI charges within three weeks. Clearly experienced in trying DUI cases in Philadelphia Steve demonstrated tenacity and skill as well as a command of the law.
He was successful in getting one of the cases dropped and the other reduced to the mandatory minimum of three months probation-no jail or loss of license. I am grateful for finding Steve and the good fortune that has been afforded me which I will not squander.

Steven is an amazing attorney. His knowledge of DUI law is endless. He knows his way around the courtroom and will fight to the end to get the best possible outcome for his client. I highly recommend Steven. He is truly a good person and a great attorney.
