Kelly represented us in a wrongful death case after our 19 year old daughter was killed in a car crash. In the shock and confusion that followed the accident we hadn't even thought of taking any legal action. Kelly was referred to us by someone we trusted so we set up an appointment to meet with her.
We were extremely impressed with Kelly. She was very professional, which was nothing more than we expected. What was more important, and what we hadn't anticipated, was the empathy, caring and sensitivity she showed us throughout the process. She let us set the pace of how much involvement and frequency of updates we wanted in the proceedings. She made sure we knew what we needed to know, when we needed to know it. She made herself available anytime we needed, or just wanted, to talk and always made it as convenient as possible for us.
Kelly always gave us her best legal advice and helped us make the decisions we had to make along the way.
We would have no hesitation recommending Kelly to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney. She genuinely cares about her clients and treats them with the utmost respect and sincerity.

Kelly Balamuth represented me after I was hospitalized with Campylobacter Jenuni. While food poisoning cases are difficult to negotiate, Ms. Balamuth negotiated an equitable settlement on my behalf. Client Communication and follow up are key to establishing an attorney-client relationship and I immediately felt that Ms. Balamuth would work in my best interest and she did just that.

Kelly represented me in an attorney malpractice case over the course of 3-1/2 years. She was steadfast in being extremely thorough, knowledgeable, supportive and assertive in pursuit of a faborable and fair outcome that we achieved. I recommend her firm highly.
