Attorney Profile -- James M. Kelly, Esq.

I have been in the private practice of law for the past fourteen years. I understand that when a person contacts a law firm, especially with a family-related issue, it is usually a stressful time. I try to make my clients' contact with the legal system as smooth and as pleasant as possible while I guide them towards the most beneficial outcome. My strengths, therefore, are honesty, integrity, and thorough representation. I will negotiate hard and aggressively litigate for my clients' interests when necessary.
