About Kiley

Learn Kiley’s areas of practice.

After graduating law school I realized that my focus as an attorney should be on helping individuals. I began doing criminal defense work when I realized how earthshattering criminal allegations and the legal system can be to individuals. I take my role, of providing a voice to the accused, very seriously. I also enjoy helping individuals who have become overwhelmed with financial issues. I enjoy working with clients to restore normalcy to their lives and a fresh start in a Bankruptcy.

Helpful Kiley
I have to say I was so nervous using a lawyer. I was told they are hard to understand and take awhile to hear back from. This is far from my experience with Kiley. She helped me in a very tough time and answered all of my questions. She provides me with easy instructions that even I understood. She was very patient with me. She was very quick to respond with any questions I had. I would hire her again if needed.

Excellent Attorney
I can't thank Kiley enough, I asked a lot of questions along the way but she answered everything extremely promptly. The roller coaster of the whole situation made things stressful but I always knew in the back of my head that having Kiley on my side was a huge asset. I would highly recommend Kiley for any legal situation you may be encountering, she will put her best effort to get a positive outcome.

Great Lawyer No Matter the Case Type
I have chosen Attorney Kiley Zellner to help me with a few tickets and life problems that have come up over the years. Two years ago I was given a ticket for Disorderly Conduct. I chose Attorney Kiley Zellner to defend me because I had heard many good things about her from my family. She asked me about the ticket and what I remember from that night. I told her everything and gave her a copy of the ticket as well. She looked it over and worked her magic. Somehow she was able to work out a deal where if I behaved for year they would drop the ticket and take it off my record. About a year ago I was given a traffic ticket which resulted in a manditory court appearance. At that time i lived far away from where I was cited and I had two jobs. Being able to get off work to go to court would have been nearly impossible. Attorney Kiley Zellner made a few phone calls to talk about the ticket I was given and try to work out a deal. She keep me informed the entire time as to what she was doing and who she was waiting for a response from. She was able to get my ticket significantly lowered and I didnt have to show up for court either. I would recommend Attorney Kiley Zellner to anyone. No matter what the case she is always professional and very well-informed. She conducts business in a timely matter and keeps the client updated everystep of the way. Even if she hasn't been given an answer she will tell the client that, that way they dont feel as though shes forgot about them.

Amazing Attorney
Kiley was great to work with. Immediately at our first meeting she made me feel at ease and I knew I could trust her. She was also quick to return calls and my concerns where always a priority. I had tons of questions and she was always willing to answer them.
