Kelli was a pleasure to work with throughout an otherwise unpleasant divorce process. She handled everything in a very effective and efficient manner. She is no BS and will shoot you straight. Her fee structure and billing was extremely fair. I have nothing but respect for her and I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a divorce or family law attorney. Thanks Kelli!

Kelli took on my case and prepared me for the entire process. She continued to keep me in the loop and is respectful of your time and money. I wanted to make sure that I am able to see my child and pay a respectable amount in support. She fought for me the entire time and especially when it was crunch time. She is sure to talk about every possible avenue your case could go. She started researching on my case during my free consultation and I knew she was someone who worked for their clients.

Kelli took on an extremely difficult case representing my wife and dealing with some very serious issues regarding her ex-husband and their kids. There were more challenges in this case that I could have asked anyone to deal with, but Kelli did it in masterful fashion. When you're busy trying to protect your kids, it can leave "mom" more than a little on edge and stressed. Kelli kept an intense, tedious situation totally under control, put her at ease and comforted her along the way. She had to serve as therapist, attorney and mediator all at the same time. I cannot say enough good things about how she commanded control of the situation, each step along the way.
No one can guarantee a “win” in these situations, because if you find yourself in family court, no one is really “winning.” It’s a hurtful, tense process. But we walked away with more positive outcomes than we ever expected and the credit goes solely to how Kelli dealt with each issue as it came.
There were a number of surprises that came up in the court room setting, but each little “gotcha” found Kelli prepared with a response. Why? Because she knew the case front to back, was over prepared, had command of the process, the setting and is incredibly fast thinking on her feet.
Bottom line, she’s a good person who has a heart for what she’s doing. I couldn’t appreciate her more, personally or professionally.
She was worth twice what our fee was simply to see how she put my wife at total ease in an incredibly difficult situation. That’s why I said, if you need assistance in the area of family law, stop looking, pick up the phone and call her - today.

In my practice, often there is some overlap between divorce and tax and probate issues. In this regard, I have worked with Kelli in assisting her family law clients with the tax ramifications of property settlement agreements. I trust Kelli and respect her legal acumen and do not hesitate to provide her name to people seeking family law counsel.

Kelli is a fighter who is dedicated to doing all that she can for her clients. I have had the opportunity to refer multiple clients her way. Each client has come away impressed by her ability to protect their interests through a divorce proceeding. Don't let Kelli's courteous bed-side manner fool you...she's a fighter and will do so if/when the situation calls for it. Simply put, I can't recommend Kelli any more highly.
