Kelly knows that confrontation during a divorce is inevitable.  He also knows that it’s his job to cut through that conflict and its associated animosity so that real solutions can be found.  Not necessarily easy in the emotionally charged world of family law.


Thoughhe’s always helping his clients look for common ground, Kelly knows hisway around a courtroom, too. With a background in litigation anddefense, he spent years getting to know the subtleties of successfullyarguing a case.


All this adds up to a no-nonsense approach to practicing law.  ForKelly, it’s all about helping clients focus their time and energy onwhat really matters, whether in a simple mediation or before the judge.

Very Satisfied with Initial Consulation
I needed advice on a parenting time issue and Kelly was very knowledgeable, explaining all of my options and the pros and cons of going each directions. He was very honest on his time with me and I would not hesitate at all to contact him again or hire him for more in debth legal work.

Top Notch Legal advice
I used Kelly for a child custody and parenting plan case. Not only was he very knowledgeable and thorough, but he explained my options in ways I could make the best decisions possible. With the situation being emotional and difficult I found him to be extremely compassionate as well. The firm has an amazing reputation in town and I feel completely satisfied with their work. For that reason I am using them for estate planning as well. No regrets and would go back in a heartbeat. Worth every penny.

Review of Kelly Evans
Kelly Evans represented me through a nasty divorce, where the husband decided to come after my retirement. Kelly very much supported what was in my best interests. The result was that some of my legal fees were paid, and I paid out not one penny. Kelly's legal knowledge, genuine concern, and sense of humor were exactly what I needed. I would recommend Kelly anytime, in fact, I already have.
