Had an emergency situation within the family and needed help asap! Attorney Kelly gave me excellent advice and assistance regarding my grandparent's rights in North Carolina. I highly recommend her... she was there when I needed help!

I must of caught Ms. Kelly while she was on a lazy streak.
She charged me a $2500 retention fee. She sat on my case, then decided two months later, that she didn't want to represent me. She strongly "suggested" I should look elsewhere for counsel, but it would cost me $500 because, as she put it, "I did do some work"??? Really, sending me an email (which I'll post) is work? Different rules down here I guess.
In my home town of New York City, there's a name for this type of behavior......(fill in the blank yourself)
Do yourself a favor, steer clear and look elsewhere if you want true quality representation. Lesson learned.

Kristin has assisted me the process of a divorce. I was apart of a domestic violence experience at the of my same sex marriage. She assisted me in obtaining a 50B (restraining order) to begin my journey. I am truly grateful for her guidance.
