About me

After spending more than ten years as an Assistant Oakland County Prosecutor, I left in 2003 to specialized in criminal defense.  We take pride in aggressively representing our client's individual needs.  We are proud of our stellar reputation and have never paid one penny in order to advertise for a client.

    Deanna Kelley is a consummate professional. She is bright, honest, very hard working, well prepared, very well respected, and does a great job for her clients. She is a credit to our profession and is the kind of attorney I would want to have by my side if I ever needed counsel.

  • Renee K. Gucciardo

    I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Deanna for over 20 years, and have seen her litigate both as a prosecutor and a defense attorney. Deanna is an extremely talented attorney who aggressively fights for her client's rights. I have referred Deanna many clients over the years and they all have had extremely positive experiences with her. Not only did she passionately advocate for the clients, but she was very sensitive to the incredible stress that they were experiencing. I would highly recommend Deanna.
