Real estate consultation
Brenden is exceptional. During our initial consultation regarding a real estate matter, he was transparent and candid about my likelihood of winning a lawsuit (which was low) and advised exploring alternative options. He invested time in locating an attorney specializing in land use and zoning for me. Brenden was not only great to talk to, but also extremely knowledgeable, and I highly endorse him. Thanks a lot for your help!

Brenden is excellent!
Working with Brenden Kelley on my oil and gas lease was a fantastic experience. He explained everything clearly, added crucial protections to the contract, and helped to secure a great lease rate. I wholeheartedly recommend Brenden to anyone in need of legal representation, especially in oil and gas lease agreements. His commitment to his clients' best interests is clearly evident, and I have no doubt that he will continue to provide exceptional service to others.

One of the Best!
I hired Brenden to create an estate plan for my family and me. He attentively listened to my concerns, cared about my needs, and made sure I was taken care of. I have worked with other estate planning attorneys in the past, but Brenden stands out as truly exceptional. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable in the law, but he also took the time to clearly explain it to me. Most importantly, he put all of my concerns at ease and I am confident that my family will be taken care of after I pass. I would not consider any other attorney.

Couldn't have asked for a better representative.
Professional. Efficient. Caring. Brenden assisted me in the purchase of a dental practice. His calm manner, keen insights, and negotiating skills were invaluable during this stressful process. I am grateful for his personal touch and tireless persistence. He helped make my dream a reality. I would highly recommend Brenden to other dentists and business owners looking for a lawyer who understands their needs and cares about their success
