The Best Lawyer in the State of Florida
Stephen Kelly was a breath of fresh air for my family. He went above and beyond to save my son college career. He’s not only a great lawyer. But a great role model. Even if I wasn’t going to choose him to take my son case. He still wanted to talk to him one black man to another. He was upfront and honest with what we were facing. And told us as long as we do what was asked, what the outcome will be. I can write a book on this young man. But I’m going to say I trusted Stephen Kelly with my 1st offender son life. And he was able to give his life back to him. I give him 10 stars and above! My son case was DISMISSED, DROPPED!! My baby got a fresh start, lesson learned, and his life back!!

Mr Kelly is the best!
I was facing ridiculous charges and was completely overwhelmed by the system. Then I hired Mr. Stephen Kelly as my attorney. Immediately, things started to change. His knowledge and hard work resulted in all charges being dismissed. I can not possibly give him and his diligent staff a higher review. Hire them! You won't regret it!

Client
Mr. Kelly helped us out with a criminal case that I was positive would require jail time. Luckily he was able to resolve this matter for us without even having to show up to court. I am extremely grateful and glad we hired him. I hope we won’t need his help again but he is definitely the person to go to for a criminal matter.

Best attorney ever
17 years of living as a convicted felon! No one believed it but me… all hopes lost.. didn’t know what to do and where to go. My prayers were answered. Mr. Kelly was able to located one of states witnesses through a PI and forever changed the verdict! He shined some light on my case and was able to reopen the case which resulted in judge vacating my conviction and state not proceeding with new charges! Mr Kelly is a knowledgeable attorney and a great friend! Definitely recommend his services! Thank you Steve!

Thank you Mr Kelly
Helped me settle a case with a big company that I thought would end up getting over on me and in the long run not paying me for the injuries caused at their establishment. Thankful to Mr Kelly we got it settled and he made sure I got the correct funds for my injury and for my time wasted with the company. I am very thank ful for him.

Knowledgeable and Hardcore
We would like to thank Mr. Kelly for his service taking care of our situation. He was referred to us by a family friend. He got right on the case and left no doubts. He was proficient, knowledgeable, respected, passionate and got our case dismissed. We can’t thank him enough.

Felony charges
Attorney Stephen Kelly is by far one of the best and well respected lawyers. We are very thankful he was able to take over our son's case and resolve in a short time. Excellent communication and upfront. No false narrative, just the facts. Where we had no hope, he made us feel at ease during the worst time of our life. Our son was looking at a lengthy jail/prison sentence and with the diligent work of Attorney Kelly, he was given probation and our son will not be convicted felony. We are eternally grateful for him and the excellent work he has done. Thank you.

Honest, Clear and Confident
This review is in hopes that anyone discouraged about their situation who can be honest with the facts will be in good hands hiring Mr. Kelly. He is a very confident and knowledgeable attorney who is upfront and not looking to prey on civilians for money. He offers great help and insight to the possibility of the outcomes and is trustworthy. Although everyone is different I highly recommend that you secure his legal counsel and watch him Work!

Arch Angel Michael of the courtroom... He will fight for you!!
I hired Mr Kelly in July of 2022. I went to him discouraged and feeling lost and defeated. After one consult I instantly knew that God placed him in my path for a reason. He never gave me false hope or mislead me. What he did do was state the facts, discuss my options and suggested his path of strategy. He was constantly and consistently in contact with me all the while encouraging any calls or texts to ensure that I was always informed and updated. He tackled this case with dignity, diligence and determination. Going in to a situation that was potentially grim with 20+ years he never sugar coated nor waiver in his knowledge and while I give all the glory to God I know first hand that this young man is destined for greatness. He is honest, hard working and very driven. I highly recommend anyone that finds themselves in need of an attorney to trust that Mr Kelly will present all avenues of defense and fight whole heatedly. He demands and deserves all the respect he so justly due!! He is by far one of the most intelligent individuals I have ever met. I am so proud to not only have hired him as attorney but to know that he is forever a friend and mentor that I will always respect and encourage others to hire him knowing that he is the best at what he does! Thank you sir for being you!! Thank you for turning a situation that could have been a life sentence into 6 months and probation. You are truly master of your craft!! God bless you and yours!!!
