"I almost find it difficult to write this review for James Kelly, as no words can express my gratitude for his services. For one, Mr. Kelly took care of my father's will/estate papers with the utmost care and attention. He made it a priority to finish quickly as my father unfortunately did not have much time. Mr. Kelly also helped me with a very difficult divorce. With his extreme professionalism, expert knowledge and understanding the emotional toll it took on me, he patiently guided me thru and worked everything out perfectly. I find James Kelly to be now not only a friend, but even a family member, and definitely my lifelong attorney."

"I have never been through anything like this and Jim was so understanding and supportive! He did everything from helping me not miss work to easing my mind through the entire process all the way to a hug after it was all done! I would refer him to anyone! Personality means a lot when you are going through hard times and never once did he make it appear it was anywhere near a hard time! Thank you Jim you are not just a great lawyer but a very awesome person!"
