Nothing substitutes for solid courtroom experience. That’s why you should investigate the types of cases your prospective lawyer has handled all the way through trial.
Kelly’s trial record includes winning one of the largest verdicts in the history of the nation for a reverse discrimination case. She's also won numerous age, disability, race, sex, and religious discrimination cases, often before trial.

Kelly applies her experience and judgment to help employees resolve issues with employers, whether that requires a demand letter, filing a charge with the EEOC, or filing a lawsuit.

Kelly's experience representing big companies gives her a perspective few plaintiffs’ employment lawyers enjoy. That perspective works to your advantage.

If you have an employment problem, Kelly would be happy to set up a consultation with you. A consultation typically takes about one hour. For this reason, Kelly charges $250 for a consultation. Although her hourly rate is $400 per hour, she charges less for consultations in order to make sure everyone has a fair opportunity to discuss his or her legal rights and options without it being cost-prohibitive to do so.

A consultation is your opportunity to fully explore your potential claims, and to have Kelly explain how the law applies to your particular facts. After the consultation, when Kelly has a clear idea about the facts of your situation, and you have a fuller understanding of the law applicable to your circumstances, you and Kelly will discuss whether your case is worth pursuing. To better prepare for a consultation, please review “Preparing For Your Lawyers”. If you have questions about the litigation process, please review “Understanding Litigation”.
