Look no further
When no one believed in me Mr. Kelly did, he never hesitated to fight for what was right. My case against a huge federal organization did not phase Jesse. He never backed down, he prepared me and worked night and day all the way through the finish line and even past that. We came out victorious, for the first time ever we won a sexual harassment case against this federal military organization!! Jesse has a passion and heart for this work, it’s not all about the money. To have a lawyer who is absolutely out to do the right thing and make the victim feel seen and heard is very hard to find, but Jesse Kelly is the guy who can do that and WIN. Do not hesitate or even waste time looking any further for a winning, passionate and hard fighting lawyer he is the best.

Attorney Jesse Kelly did a great job representing me. After calling multiple law firms, he was the only attorney I spoke with that truly showed genuine interest in understanding my case in its entirety. He was very responsive, flexible and I would highly recommend him.

Attorney Jesse Kelly
Attorney Kelly was very diligent with my case. I love the fact that I was able to call him after hours if I had a pressing question and he would always respond promptly. He was very knowledgeable about the law and he made sure I understood. He informed me of every decision and did not move without my consent. When I got discouraged about some of the outcome he would always encourage me. He often told me not to give up and that he was willing to fight on my behalf and he did just that. He gave advice to me like he would give a family member which showed he had my best interest. I’m so grateful he was willing to take my case.

Professional, compassionate, and thorough
Mr. Kelly was professional, flexible, compassionate, and very thorough in responding to my questions and concerns. I had some technical difficulties that resulted in needing to reschedule my initial consultation, and he was very patient while I got this sorted on my end. My reasons for contacting Mr. Kelly involved a complicated time line with some unprofessional and problematic supervisors. Mr. Kelly actively listened, asking clarifying questions, repeating things back to me to ensure he understood, and thoroughly answered my questions. He acknowledged and respected my feelings, and gave me multiple options to deal with my specific situation with respective pros and cons. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Kelly for your legal needs.

Mr. Kelly Is A Powerhouse!
Mr. Kelly is an outstanding attorney who fully engages with you as the client. Since he has become my attorney I have appreciated his candor, patience, and knowledge. I needed an attorney that not only knows the law but is a stellar writer and communicator. Mr. Kelly has been all of those things. Even though he has several clients, I appreciate the fact that he has prioritized my case within his practice. Very impressed…

Impeccable Attorney
It is very challenging to find an attorney that you mesh well with. After my first interaction with Mr. Kelly via phone, I knew I wanted him to represent me!! Mr. Kelly is compassionate, professional, articulate, detail oriented, very knowledgeable and an excellent educator. Before I met Mr. Kelly, I had no knowledge of federal law or legal processes. Mr. Kelly explained everything to me in layman’s terms and helped me immensely with completion of documentation! Mr. Kelly was always readily available when I needed him and he made sure that we adhered to all federal timelines. It is very evident that Mr. Kelly is passionate about his clients and his work! Most importantly, Mr. Kelly has always been there for me when I needed him. I will definitely be referring Mr. Kelly to my colleagues!! Mr. Kelly not only cares about your case, but also cares about your well being. Thank you Mr. Kelly for all that you have done for me!!

Hard working, provided me the time I needed
Jesse was able to leap into a case that was half completed, learn all the details, and guide it to a satisfactory solution. He spent a lot of time explaining to me the details and answering my questions. I have no complaints and would highly recommend him for future clients.

Really tries to have your back!
I am extremely happy with Jesse. He took a chance on me and believed me when nobody else did. He fought and won a proposed removal. My employer then did a 15 day suspension and had that dropped as well. A very patient person who always made me feel i could call and ask questions.
