I know and have worked with a number of family law attorneys through the years but Kelly Malone is the one I chose to represent me when I needed an attorney. Kelly possesses skills and knowledge far greater than the average attorney and she has compassion and understanding for her clients. Her years of experience and her ability to remember details about individual cases and the court rules help to make her awesome in the office and even more so in the court room. She is definitely my first choice when in need of a family law attorney.
Kelly Malone was hired to assist us in a family child custody dispute. Whenever I spoke to her, I was often given the impression she was confused or simply didn't know how to answer the topic at hand. After talking to three other lawyers in the Spokane, WA area, I realized my several thousand dollars (@$5000?) has totally gone to waste. She didn't move or take action on subjects and requests we asked for and other lawyers have advised our requests could have easily been requested and granted by the courts (like drug tests for parents with a known drug history!) All legal counsel I spoke with after her agreed she did not apply herself and defend us as well as she could have. For someone being licensed for 16 years in the legal profession, it sure doesn't show. DON'T EVER HIRE HER!
I hired Kelley over 4 years ago and in the past 4 years she has done nothing. Everything was agreed upon so everything should have been filled along time ago. I paid her well over what's she is worth. Recently in a conversation I said would meet with her but won't pay her a d dime and she told me she won't meet with me unless I pay her, I then told her I would hire another attorney then after that she agreed to meet with me for 30 min with no charge. I waisted over 6,000 on an attorney that has sat on her butt.
