Kelly Burdette was very helpful throughout my SIRVA claim. She explained the process thoroughly and was very specific about what information was needed and how I should complete the forms and applications required. She clarified the negotiation of settlement and I am satisfied with the result.

Kelly helped me file a case with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation program. I had received my yearly flu shot in December 2015 and was quickly diagnosed with SIRVA. I, of course, had a lot of questions and Kelly always responded to all of my emails and calls in a timely fashion. Kelly was very good at explaining what was going to happen and what the process entails so that I knew what to expect at all times. It is March of 2017 and we have accepted the settlement, which I am very pleased with. Fast and efficient service! I liked her so much that I refer people to her who don’t even need a lawyer in what she specializes in!

I had a disabling reaction to a common vaccine, which, by law, can only be addressed through the federal court of claims. The law limits payments to lawyers in such cases but despite this Kelly Burette applied herself with dedication and creativity, finding paths through the process even when serious obstacles were put in our way. She communicated well with parties on both sides as well as expert witnesses. Her efforts kept me well informed and led to a settlement acceptable to all parties. I would highly recommend her and her firm.
Eric Nelson, Car accident Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I highly recommend Kelly Hooper. We worked on a case together and I witnessed first-hand how dedicated she was to her work and that her legal skills were exceptional. I would not hesitate to ask Kelly to handle a legal matter on my behalf.
Eric Jones, Immigration Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. She was very professional and did not play games. She was clearly passionate over insuring her clients needs were being met without being over zealous and thus hindering the possibility of negotiating a settlement that was fair to both sides. I would recommend her as an advocate and I would work with her as counsel.
