employment law
Lynn was very helpful with providing advice on an employment law situation I was dealing with at my office. She is very knowledgeable and I would recommend her to anyone who needs legal assistance in employment law matters.

Employment Legal
Lynn Kelly was very knowledgable in employment matters as it relates to non compete agreements. I called her and left a message and she returned my call within an hour, which I was impressed because I had called other law firms and have yet to return a call to this day. She took the time to listen my situation and reassured me that she could handle our matter. She is extremely timely and easy to work with and handled our legal matter in 24 hours! What a great attorney to have. Thank you for all you do!

A friend you can count on.
I met Lynn, several years ago and found her to be very knowledgeable in the areas of law she practiced and a great friend. Not until I was surprised with a lawsuit, did I need her services and really started to see her shine.. As I began to panic, Lynn was instantly there to calm me down as a friend and guide me through what would be a multi-year legal battle with Lynn confidently at the helm. Now that the battle is over, and won in our favor, I cannot thank her enough! If you are ever in need of legal assistance, just call Lynn. You will not find a more compassionate and professional attorney out there! I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Excellent lawyer for employment-related matters
I hired Ms. Kelly to look over an employment agreement and was introduced to her through a referral. I found Ms. Kelly to be very knowledgeable and professional in her work and she was a great help to me. I thoroughly recommend her.
