When a client hires Kelly, her number one goal is to add value to their business by helping them to navigate current challenges and encourage future growth. She understands retaining an attorney should be an investment in a relationship, and she spends considerable non-billable time learning about clients’ businesses, operational challenges, and goals.
Kelly specializes in complex class and multi-plaintiff employment litigation, including wage and hour and trade secret litigation. Throughout her fifteen-plus years of defending corporate clients, Kelly has first-chaired a number of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and breach-of-contract claims to successful verdicts.
Kelly understands the cases she handles for clients involve systemic practices that can have significant impacts on a company’s bottom line, and spends much of her time learning about clients’ unique needs in order to obtain results that advance their strategic business goals.
