I cannot thank Kelly enough for all the hard work she has put into my high conflict custody battle. It's been 7 years and I finally have my judgement. She dug my daughter out of a bad situation, got the 730 evaluation we needed in our case and wrapped it up with a judgement on it. Thank you Jesus!!! I thought I would never see an end. She knows the law better than any lawyer I've met. She is also extremely professional and fights for her clients. She will never feed you crap and will always tell the truth. The law was always on my side, Kelly helped solidify everything. I cannot thank her enough.

This was one of the best investments I made in getting my divorce finalized!! I filed my own divorce papers and had trouble with the final judgment packet. This process has been ongoing for a year until I finally decided to consult with a lawyer. I consulted with Kelly to assist me with the final process and from the moment I walked into her office, I knew I made the best decision to consult with her. Kelly was very professional, thorough and straightforward in the hour that I spent with her. She was also very personable and compassionate, and knowledgeable in her craft. She told me the mistakes I did in my divorce paperwork, assisted me in completing what I was missing, and put together my judgment packet.
Sure enough, the minute I filed what she put together, my divorce was FINALIZED!! I would definitely recommend her office and services to anyone seeking legal advice or representation in family law.
Kelly, thank you so much for your expert legal advice!! I don't think my divorce would ever be finalized without your guidance!

Kelly helped me through one of the most difficult challenges of my life. I was totally disheartened and depressed with the way things were going with my case. I met Kelly by chance and she was able to accomplish in one month what the previous attorney could not accomplish in two years! She was on it! A relentless tiger in the court room! Leading up to my court date, Kelly took care of every detail and followed up to make sure I stayed on track. She leaves no room for nonsense and does not waste time. She is honest and 100% ethical. A rare gem! Thank you Kelly! I am forever grateful to you! You know it!

I endorse this lawyer. Kelly is an excellent mediator. She is very knowledgeable about the law and shows empathy and compassion towards the litigants. Kelly is child centered and encourages parents to work together to come up with the best parenting skills and plans for their children. I highly recommend Kelly as a mediator.
