The Best!!
Kelly Nunez, by far, was the absolute best professional I have ever worked with. I’m a bit on the easy to freak out side, and she kept me calm the entire time. She answered every email or returned a phone call immediately. Questions were answered with clear and easy to understand answers. I highly recommend Kelly.

Great Lawyer
I hired Kelly over 23 years ago for my worker compensation claim. She handled the claim well and offered me plenty of choices in the direction to go. For knowing her for this many years I can say she's a great lawyer. If you need her services give her a call and let her manage your claim.

Does what she says
She was always attentive to the needs that I had at the time especially when I was nervous about having surgery she was always there to calm me down and saying that'll be okay and it was when I would get anxious again she would calm me down and tell me it takes time and it does but she was always kind and considerate and so was her assistant kyleen I appreciate her to.

Professional and communicative.
My husband and I sought her counsel for a Workmans comp benefit that we had never received. Painless was not what we were expecting. The paperwork was very easy to understand. Both she and her staff kept us informed throughout the process. She communicated with us frequently and was available to answer our questions in a timely manner. The case was settled much faster than anticipated. We have already recommended her to several friends for other matters.

Best of the best
Kelly is fantastic. We met with a few different attorneys before we met with Kelly and she was very sympathetic and understanding from the very start. She listened to our story. Took detailed notes and started to explain her course of action immediately! She was very helpful, full of knowledge, and explained things better than the doctors. Kelly and her paralegal colleen were always available to talk no matter how many times you called and answered any questions no matter how many times we asked. They are genuine and caring and treated us as if we were family! She fought for us and made our unfortunate situation easier to deal with. I'm times where I felt discouraged or like giving up she was there and gave us the strength to continue. Its amazing to have someone in your corner, fighting for you that knows what they are doing!!! I would hire her time and time again in a heartbeat. Recommend her 100%

Client
Kelly and her associates are excellent attorneys. They are very knowledgeable, responsive and reliable. Kelly represented me in a damage claim resulting from the BP oil spill and I am very pleased with the quality of her work and the resolution. I would recommend Kelly and her firm to any perspective clients without any reservation whatsoever.

Auto accident
Kelly was referred to us by a close friend who also is an attorney . She is very knowledgable and a total go getter. She is trust worthy and hard working and knows the law. This is our second time we are using her services.
