Kelly L. Neitzke primarily practices family law and divorce law in Waukesha County.  The cornerstone of Kelly’s practice is her relationship with her clients.  She listens to clients and offers genuine compassion for their legal concerns.  Kelly makes it a priority to communicate with clients and provide each client with her honest opinion regarding their needs, goals, and personal objectives.

Kelly offers a free consultation on all matters, and would be happy to meet with you to discuss your important legal matter and to begin to establish a quality relationship.

School placement trial
I hired Kelly for a case that involved placement for minor children's school district. It took a year of battle with the special master than with the Judge. The final outcome was a win from Kelly and I. Thank you for all your long hrs and hard work Kelly

Great attorney
Kelly was appointed by the judge to my case as our Guardian at litem. I felt she really did a great job for my child. She was always informed, she contacted my ex-spouse and I promptly, her office is quick to return calls, she spoke very calmly and politely with my ex-spouse's attorney (who was an extremely difficult attorney to work with) and she was always courteous (but firm) in court. She truly looked out for my child's best interest and she made recommendations to the judge fully acknowledging requests from both sides - mine and my ex-spouse. Thanks to her, my divorce went smoother and settling on custody issues was much easier given her knowledge of the law and ability to explain it in such a way that a lay person like me could understand. I really highly recommend her if you have tough custody issues with your ex-spouse.
