Excellent Attorney - I was fortunate to find Steve Kelley through a referral back in 2003 and we have been using him ever since. Steve is a brilliant attorney with great ideas who thinks beyond the current situation looking forward. He is a very knowledgeable and experienced negotiator and handles all matters in a very professional manner. I have such confidence in Steve's ability I have asked him to take on a matters that were not in his area of expertise, like Union issues, Buy America Act, etc, I think he enjoys the challenge. Steve has the resources and takes the necessary time to research matters so we are at the forefront on each approach to all business contracts and dealings. He is a valuable resource to our business and impressively wise and tactful. I highly recommend Steve Kelley, he is a testament to what a good attorney is made of, honest, ethical, hardworking, and very competent.
Philip McCune, Litigation Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
Steve is that rare lawyer who has the highest professional skills, but combines them with practical and imaginative insight based on his real world business background. Steve is therefore an exceptionally effective negotiator, but also a superior practitioner at identifying and addressing issues to his clients’ advantage, often before others involved identify them. To have a lawyer who is consistently ahead of the curve, with such a wide range of skills and the ability to use them effectively (and cost effectively), is rare indeed. I have worked with Steve on and off throughout the years on matters ranging from litigation to sophisticated business negotiations. I generally find myself pushed by Steve to be imaginative, insightful and proactive. That is high praise from someone who prides himself on possessing those qualities independent of my business relationship with Steve. I give Steve my highest recommendation.
