Dedication to Service

Clients are not interested in legal theories, they are interested in solving problems, they do not want to know why not, they want to know how.”

James E Brill

Clients want lawyers who are concerned about their issues and who care about them. They want honest lawyers who have good reputations. They want prompt business like lawyers and somewhere after they get all of that, clients want lawyers who charge reasonable fees. Basically, the clients are more interested in the quality of their experience and of our service than they are in the price.

What is a quality law practice? A quality law practice means matching our services to the client’s expectations. The Kelley Law Firm delivers quality which provide value for the clients needs.

With that in mind, we must help our clients articulate their desires and expectations, ensure that those desires and expectations are realistic, and take prompt and appropiate action on the clients’ behalf.
