Kelly helps couples and families artfully navigate through the complex and often divisive channels of divorce, pre- and post-marital agreements and child custody issues. Given the sensitive and generally emotional nature of these types of cases, Kelly passionately strives to help couples smoothly and successfully resolve the issues that often plague complex divorces. An avid proponent and leader of the Collaborative Law movement, Kelly works tirelessly with her clients to ensure collaboration without proceeding to court, resulting in the overall goals of reduced stress and financial burden. If, however, Collaborative Law is not an option and litigation is necessary, Kelly’s high-energy, tough, no-nonsense demeanor and dynamic presence make her a powerhouse in the courtroom.
Kelly began her legal career practicing tax law. While learning the ropes through the complicated maze of tax codes, rules and requirements, Kelly began providing pro bono services for domestic violence cases. Kelly was inspired by the rewarding work of helping others and decided to shift her practice to family law. With her background in tax law, Kelly offers another dimension to her exceptional client service.
