How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I have been working in the bankruptcy area for 16 years. I enjoy helping people.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

I have worked in high volume bankruptcy firms for 16 years.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We shoot straight with our clients. Sometimes, bankruptcy might not be the best option for you. If it isn't, we will tell you. We will not put you in a case that will not help you. Our goal is to help you and empower you.

Most of the large filers give you only a few minutes with a bankruptcy attorney. At my firm, the attorney typically spends two hours reviewing the bankruptcy petition with you. We want to take the time to ensure that your petition is perfect and your case will sail smoothly.

Jeffrey Kelly

I have been practicing consumer bankruptcy law since December 1998. The sole focus of my practice is consumer bankruptcy.In 1993, I graduated from Columbia University in New York City. While at Columbia, I was a member of the cross country and track teams. I graduated from Columbia with a Bachelors of Arts in political science. After graduation, I returned to Atlanta and worked as a case clerk for Alston & Bird for two years. In 1995, my beautiful wife and I moved to Knoxville so that I could attend the University of Tennessee College of Law where I received my Juris Doctorate. After law school, we moved back to Georgia .

I spent many years working for various high volume consumer bankruptcy firms. In May 2006, I decided to start my own firm. My wife, four kids, and I currently attend Stonebridge Church in Marietta, Georgia. In my free time, I like to swim. Unfortunately, I blew out my back in my late 30s so I had to give up running. However, I still try to stay in shape by swimming at the YMCA in Rome.
