Practice Overview
Kelly formed her boutique firm in 2007, after nearly 20 years of practicing law in a variety of legal settings. The firm represents deserving individuals who face discrimination in the workplace.  It also assists businesses who need help investigating discrimination claims and ensuring compliance with federal discrimination laws.

As a trial lawyer, Kelly won one of the largest race discrimination verdicts in the history of the nation, as reported in the National Law Journal, Top 100 Verdicts (2003). On the other end of the spectrum, she successfully defended a minority-owned business and its owner unjustly accused of discrimination. In other words, when you receive advice from Kelly, you’ll receive advice from an attorney who has first-hand experience representing plaintiffs and defendants. This allows you to obtain an objective and realistic assessment of your case.

Kelly’s firm handles all types of discrimination and harassment claims, especially race, gender, and religious claims. She understands the nuances of the law governing employment-related claims and works to protect and defend her clients’ interests.

During the past few years of economic turmoil, Kelly increasingly hears from employees who need help developing exit strategies, reviewing employment contracts, and understanding the full consequences of proposed separation agreements. The firm takes particular pride in assisting people during these difficult transitions.

The firm has seen terrific results with mediation, both as an advocate and as a mediator. Because of this experience, Kelly is committed to the mediation process, and she handles numerous mediations to successful conclusions each year.

Feel free to call or email Kelly to see if her unique combination of experience and excellence can help you.
