I am licensed in Tennessee. Georgia and Alabama.  Before joining The Hamilton Firm in 2012, I had several years of experience as an insurance defense lawyer in Alabama and Tennessee. That inside knowledge of how insurance companies evaluate and defend cases has enabled me to maximize settlement outcomes for many personal injury clients. I handle various personal injury cases, including automobile wrecks, truck wrecks, workplace injuries, and premises liability cases, as well as workers’ compensation cases in Georgia and Tennessee.

Excellent Personal Injury Lawyer
I hired Annette Kelly to represent me after I was in a car accident. I felt relieved when I realized I was in good hands with a lawyer that actually cared about my well being and was knowledgeable and compassionate. The entire office staff was amazing. I would hire them again if needed.

Caring, Helpful, and Dedicated
Annette Talley Kelly represented me in a terrible car accident involving a tractor trailer, that affected me physically and financially. She worked tirelessly on my case, and was always easy to reach when I needed her. I am very happy with the outcome of my case, and thanks to her, I was able to recover all of my losses.

Outstanding Professional Representation
I hired Annette Kelley to represent me after I was injured in a car accident. She provided clear, helpful and always professional advice, support and a positive outcome to my case. I'm hopeful I'll never have to use her service again, but would certainly do so if needed. I will personally refer anyone with a car accident, personal injury, workers compensation case to Ms. Kelley with confidence knowing they will receive the same outstanding professionalism and expertise as I did.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Annette and I have worked on opposite sides in multiple matters. In each and every instance, Annette demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and skill. She uses her experience and deep understanding the law to vigorously fight for her clients, but with a civility and demeanor which facilitates progress in the case without needless litigation. She is, however, a formidable litigator should a hearing become necessary. I would happily refer friends, family, and clients to Annette for representation should the need ever arise."
