God’s gift for justice seekers.
As a disabled US Navy Veteran I can say with all honesty that lawyer Mandy Kelly is God’s blessing to me. She was so professional, sincere, kind, friendly, punctual, humble, and persistent. Her relentless efforts bore for me the fruits of my due rights which the blessed VA department owed me. She was able to get me all the benefits I was entitled to prior and post appeal. She is such an honest lawyer and greed does not exist in her dictionary. I never forget when she was able to make me win back the full extent of my due benefits and refused to get paid for her services for that specific benefit. I wholeheartedly advise all people especially veterans to seek Lawyer Mandy Kelly and put all their confidence in her for she will take you to the harbor of safety.

Dynamic Partnership With Disability Law Group
Mandy Kelly and her team of case managers have been very helpful in navigating the VA claims process effectively. After several years of thinking this is a hands-off process, I realized I needed to learn as much about the VA claims process and regularly communicate with the legal team. I realized how much work Mandy and her team did and that being informed helped me engage in the process. The team was patient with me; helped me decipher the VA language/process, thereby significantly decreasing my anxiety about what was happening. The staff are professional and answer the phones with a real person once you identify your relationship with firm. I greatly appreciate the support and excellent representation from Mandy and her team (Ashley/Meredith) . Thank you

Five stars isn't enough for this law firm!
. If you're searching for a disability lawyer, look no further! By far the best experience I have ever had. They are beyond professional and handle every aspect of your claim. I couldn't be more happy with the way my claims ended up. I would receive mail from the VA or Social Security and call Mandy's office to see if I needed to do anything. They were always on point and most of the time they had already handled whatever the VA or Social Security wanted. They were wonderful about keeping me informed with updates about what was happening with my claims. I can't speak highly enough about this company. I trust them completely! I have a group of friends that have used this law group for their disability needs and all of us are completely happy with how our claims were handled and the outcome of those claims.

I had used a VSO (Veteran Service Officer) with no results for a couple years. Mandy took over and has got me across the finish line.

Outstanding!
Ms. Kelly was wonderful in all aspects of my VA Appeal along with her staff. I had almost given up hope with the VA process until I reached out to her. She made everything seamless, was always available, kind, caring and professional. I can't say thank you enough. If you're having any VA issues, I highly suggest contacting her.

Excellent
Mandy is very professional. She is interested in your best result, not the quickest finish. Elyse, is her her assistant and very helpful. If you deal with the VA they are slow but Mandy handled things as quick as possible. Start to finish during a backlog of covid it took less than a year to deal with the VA, after dealing with 2.5 years on my own. Thank You Mandy and Team!!

Over the Moon!!!
OMG I am truly over the moon right now!!! When I started my journey with Mandy and Erica I was very distressed, losing all hope. When Mandy took my case she encouraged me and told me its going to be okay. She was right! Mandy went to court with me and fought for my compensation! I started out with 10% compensation, and now as of today I'm at 100% ALL THANKS to Disability Law Group and Mandy!!! Thanks again Mandy!!!

Mr.
Mandy Kelly has been there with me through this long arduous journey to receive my disability rating and compensation. It took several years and two lawsuits but in the end we found success. Thank you Dasability Law Group, Attorney Mandy Kelly, and assistant Elyse for all the hard work and dedication to my case. We won and I am grateful for your help.

Chuck Gibson/Retired Marine seeking compensation
I cannot remember how I found Mandy but I was searching for an Attorney to represent me for a V.A. claim. After contacting her she gave me an appointment for a sit down to discuss my case. I wasn't in the chair 5 minutes and I knew she was what I wanted. Straight to the point, and she laid out a plan for my case to get what I was asking for. I hired her immediately. I have a way of reading body language and watching how people speak. Mandy says what she means and means what she says. My case was reviewed and settled in a reasonable amount of time and I received more than I expected. I am very grateful and I would refer any Veteran who seeks an Attorney to her. If I am in need again of any legal action, Mandy will be the one I call.

Amazing!
Mandy Kelly and her staff took on a huge challenge to get my husband the VA Disability benefits he deserved. I can't imagine us having gone through with any other attorney! Mandy is extremely knowledgeable of all the red tape and hoops one must work through to get a positive outcome, but, better yet she's caring, confident and takes on the responsibility and problems so you don't have to. Her ability to know what needs to be done to get a positive outcome is amazing! We have no hesitation recommending Mandy. If you find yourself in situation where you think you need a disability attorney don't shoulder the burden alone...Call Mandy!
