Great attorney
Kelisen was referred to me by a friend who had used her for an Order of Protection. She was extremely helpful and responsive. Her team was professional. I was very glad to have found her.

Kelisen was referred to me by another attorney who works mediation cases. Kelisen was so helpful and explained everything to me, she didn't treat me like an idiot for not knowing how the law and child custody works, she was very respectful and intentive. Thank you, Kelisen, you've made this a not so horrible experience!!

Great attorney
I approached Kelisen with a simple dissolution matter. She took time to listen to my situation and provided me objective feedback. She actually suggested that this was something I could handle without an attorney to save $, but that she would gladly take care of it for me if I wanted. It is this kind of honesty that a lot of 'bill-hungry" attorneys lack. I chose to hire Kelisen and she handled my case perfectly.

Zero Stars
During my first consultation with Kelison, I thought she was nice and informative. However, after I hired her to take on my case, she was not easy to get in contact with and I felt as though she was not taking my case serious. After several texts from my ex stating he knew that was getting ready to have a baby and that she was on maternity leave. I felt as though Kelison was way too personal with the opposing counsel. And I did not appreciate that at all. Especially, with all the stress I was already going through with having a newborn baby and having to go through a court case. After seeking new counsel, I sent Kelison an email stating that I would no longer be seeking advice from her and that I had found a new lawyer. I have sent a few emails after parting ways with her and her firm and I have still not received any of my retainer from the Binder Firm. If I could give 0 stars, I would! How do you not refund someone part of their $1500? I understand her services had an hourly fee, however, I only met with her face to face twice and spoke on the phone with her once or twice. The services used did not equal $1500. And I should have received something as a refund! It is now August of 2020 and I parted ways with Kelison in December of 2019. Why has it taken so long for me to receive a refund?? There are better lawyers in the KC area than this firm!!

"I got to know Kelisen when she was a judicial clerk for one of the Jackson County Judges. She was polite, civil and well versed in the law. As an attorney, you will find her to be kind, reassuring and extremely competent to handle your case. She is very intelligent and quick on her feet. Family Law is full of stress and heartache. You will find Kelison to be a strong, smart and steady advocate for both you and your case. I recommend her highly."
