I am a mother of 2 lovely girls and have been married to a wonderful husband for 6 years.  Law is my second career.  Before becoming a lawyer I was a school teacher for children with special needs and had worked with children for special needs for the last 15 years.  I have a B.S. in Human Services, Master's in Special Education, and Juris Doctorate.  I have devoted a large portion of my life to teaching and helping children and their families.  I choose law to be able to assist families in other ways such as custody, divorce, education issues, estate planning, disability issues as well as several other areas of law.  I have enjoyed my career change, because I have had the opportunity to advocate and assist many families in trouble times.  I look forward to helping you in a situation.  I firmly believe because I have a better understanding I can give better service.  Please feel free to contact me.  My office is located on South Blvd. in Charlotte, NC, but I do travel.

Outstanding Service
OMG I've never had such faster action in my life! I contacted Espaillat Law about payment that was due me for over 4 months from a job I worked and felt that company was giving me the run around. I talked with Kelli at Espaillat law and immediately she understood how I felt and was determined to help. She was so informative in explaining steps we should take in terms I could understand and as promised stayed in contact. I RECEIVED THE MONIES DUE ME WITHIN 10 DAYS FROM THAT COMPANY WOW....THANKS KELLI...

Excellent Counsel for assisting with my Family Estate concerns
Kelli was able to quickly assess my Stepfather's Will for me when a concern arose before his Estate was to be settled concerning monies to be bequeathed to me. She provided me with a better understanding of what to expect and was always prompt in getting back with me. I was very impressed with her and will definitely seek her advice in the future.

"I endorse this lawyer. Kelli and I were classmates during law school. I witnessed first hand her dedication, tenacity, fierce determination, and willingness to learn. She was one of the hardest working students in our class. She had two babies while attending law school. Kelli visited my home on many Saturdays during law school for study sessions. Now that she is practicing, she has exemplified that same determination and work ethic. I have spoken with her on many occasions since law school, and, she is always positive about her clients and the work she is engaged in. Kelli is upbeat, outgoing, sincere, likeable, smart, knowledgeable of the law, and fun to be around. I recommend her without any reservation whatsoever to anyone in the Charlotte area!"
