Accidents and injuries can be life-changing. At Kelly + Kelly Lawyers our goal is to help people and families injured in car accidents, falls and other traumatic events.

The ability to work, and the opportunity to do so, are both essential to a person’s security. The onset of illness or injury making it too hard to work is frightening, like standing on a precipice.

At Kelly + Kelly Lawyers we provide criminal trial and appeal services on a selective basis, with focus on particularly challenging and complex matters.

At Kelly + Kelly Lawyers we have years of knowledge and experience dealing with insurance companies to help our clients make sure that they are indemnified and restored after loss or damage.

At Kelly + Kelly Lawyers we act for non-unionized employees. The shock of dismissal, especially after many years of employment, can be staggering.

We pay particular attention to assessing early on how a family law file is best resolved, whether through negotiations, referrals to custody/access assessors, mediation, arbitration or litigation.

Kelly + Kelly Lawyers strive for fair and just resolution of civil disputes involving private individuals, businesses and public authorities.
