*Please note that I represent tenants only, not landlords.

My goal is make sure all individuals with legal problems have access to the legal help they need. I offer individuals straight-forward, flat-rate billing options at prices they can afford. No more surprise bills at the end of your representation. If you have a serious legal problem and are worried about having the funds to get help, let me work with you. We can arrange something to make us both happy.

I am not your typical attorney. My journey to the legal field was a strange one. After studying biochemistry and gene therapy, I decided the lab environment wasn't for me. I looked into becoming a patent agent so I could help new inventors protect their ideas and start businesses.

I joined an existing Intellectual Property law firm and enjoyed the work. I decided to pursue a legal degree and become an attorney. After 3 1/2 years of night school, I received my license. While attending school, my interests expanded beyond patent law but always remained focused on the individual.

However, the firm's clients were primarily larger oil and gas clients rather than the individuals on which I wanted to focus. I left the firm to start my own practice. Let me know how I can help you.

Amazing!
Sarah Kelly is a fantastic lawyer and amazing human being – despite what others may say about those two things beings mutually exclusive in the legal profession. She helped me navigate my case when I was at the end of my rope and all hope was lost. Sarah was kind, patient, detail-oriented, and a fighter. All of the qualities you would want in a lawyer. Thank you Sarah for all of your hard work and guidance!

Very helpful and professional!
Sarah helped me draft a demand letter, and coordinate with my ex-landlord. She was professional, prompt, and produced A+ work to help get my legal situation going in the right direction. I would definitely hire her again!

Thank you!
Though Sarah Kelly was not able to help me due to the distance, she was very helpful to direct me on ways to work through problem collecting on a court judgement.

Told me what I needed to know
I contacted Ms Kelly about a landlord in Bell County who charged me more than twice my security deposit on move out, then when I disputed his spurious charges, added even more. While she advised against taking him to court, which was not what I wanted to hear, she told me what I needed to know to make that decision. I really appreciated her help.

We had an issue and needed consultation. Ms. Kelly went above and beyond to assist us. She was very knowledgeable, professional, and most of all nice. I highly recommend using her for any legal problems you may need representation for!

Thoughtful & Responsive
I requested a phone consultation with Sarah earlier this week, and we were on the phone just about 1.5 hrs later! Kelly was thoughtful; she listened through my situation in full extent. Though we ultimately decided my situation didn't require full legal action just yet, Sarah helped me reason through the possible options and next steps. It was low pressure - though I had reached out to her, it was clear she was working to help me find the most amicable solution for both me and my tenant. Fantastic job! I would definitely seek out her ear for any future issues.

Dependable and quick to respond
I was initially working with a different firm when I was notified the day before my contracts were supposed to be drafted that were no longer able to handle my case. When I contacted Sarah she immediately responded and when I explained the urgency she fit me in that day for a consultation. She was very knowledgeable, had a great personality, fair price, and great work! Would definitely recommend.

Supportive listener
Sarah was well-organized for our meeting and was punctual and professional. She listened to the issues and made sure to offer concrete suggestions. She followed up outside of our meeting with additional information, which I really appreciated. I left our meeting feeling energized and confident that I could move forward with someone at my back who was very diligent and passionate about her own field and career.
