Eloise Kelsey’s practice now regularly includes the most serious allegations including strike offenses, sex crimes and gang allegations. And while every case is fact dependent, Ms. Kelsey is proud of her trial results which frequently include not guilty verdicts to some or all charges. If you are looking for someone to assist you through the stress of a criminal charge with patience and compassion, but without judgment, while still passionately advocating for you and your rights in court, look no further.
Ms. Kelsey was born and raised in Merced County. She is the daughter of a farming and ranching family which has been in operation since the 1850s.
After graduating from Merced High School in 1999, she attended Saint Mary's College of California. She received a bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies in 2003. She then spent time working as a Constituent Service Representative for Congressman Doug Ose (retired) in Sacramento focusing on the areas of immigration and social security. She later returned to Merced and worked with the USDA through a subcontractor. She attended law school at San Joaquin College of Law in Clovis, CA. She graduated and passed the bar in 2010.
Following several years at the Merced County Public Defender's Office, where Ms. Kelsey handled hundreds of cases including misdemeanors, felonies and juvenile delinquency, Ms. Kelsey left to begin a private practice. Since 2014, Ms. Kelsey has been the proud owner and partner in the Law Offices of Kelsey & Ramirez, LLP.
Since 2014, Ms. Kelsey's experience and passion for criminal defense has grown. She has now represented multiple clients on charges as serious as 1st Degree Murder. In November 2017, Ms. Kelsey defended a Special Circumstance Homicide case during a 5 week trial.
