John Eugene Kelly

also known as John Kelly

About me

I am focused on client communication and effective collection of the compensation my clients are owed.  I understand the stress which can be related to a legal case; mounting bills, time off work, pain & suffering.  My approach is to make the legal portion as painless and stress-free as possible, while maintaining a focus on maximum compensation for my clients claims. 

Recent Awards 

I have won top attorney under 40, three years in a row by the National Trial Lawyers Association, 10 Best Attorney for Client Satisfaction and I have maintained a perfect AVVO rating and maintain excellent client ratings on Google and Yelp. 

Primary Practice Areas 

My main area of focus is on personal injury; including but not limited to: Car accident, motorcycle accident, workers compensation, slip and fall, defective products, class action, brain injury, trucking accident, dog bite and as a former prosecutor I do occasionally take criminal defense cases such as DUI. 

Free Consultation  

If you are in need of a personal injury attorney in the Phoenix area, please feel free to give me a call.  We can setup a free consultation and determine if your case has merit and the best way to maximize your compensation.
