Very pleased!
Mr. Kelly's ability to think outside the box is what sets him apart from the other attorneys I have met with.
Posted by Lori | April 17, 2013
One of the best I've ever hired
I am thoroughly impressed with Mr. Kelly's professionalism and willingness to fight for our interests. He is not your run-of-the-mill attorney. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a competent, honest lawyer.

Jim Kelly handled my claim promptly. He gave me realistic expectations for my case, and he delivered on his promises. I got the result I wanted, and I did not have to spend years waiting for it.
