Attorney Profile

Katie Kelley is an attorney with Nancy Zalusky Berg, LLC, law firm in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A top-rated lawyer and emerging leader in her field, Ms. Kelley focuses her practice solely on family law. She provides exceptional counsel and support to clients throughout the greater Twin Cities region and surrounding areas who are going through a divorce or have another serious legal issue affecting their families.

As an attorney, Ms. Kelley has gained a reputation for her compassion and empathy as she provides her clients with the highly personalized advice they need to make the best-informed decisions about the matters that will affect their families for years to come. Well-versed in mediation and negotiations, she prefers to help her clients resolve their conflicts and reach favorable agreements outside of court in order to avoid the cost and stress of traditional divorce litigation.

However, Ms. Kelley will not hesitate to take her clients' issues to court when necessary, and she maintains an unwavering focus on protecting her clients' rights and best interests, as well as those of their children, throughout all legal proceedings. From her efforts, she has achieved considerable success helping her clients through some of the most difficult and uncertain times in their lives, and she has received many testimonials and referrals from those she has served.

Along with maintaining a successful legal practice, Ms. Kelley routinely volunteers her time and services to those less fortunate in her community, and she has earned consistent top rankings and endorsements from her peers for her outstanding professionalism and service.

A 2012 graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Ms. Kelley obtained her Juris Doctor from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 2017. She is an active member of the Minnesota State Bar Association, the Hennepin County Bar Association and Minnesota Women Lawyers, and she serves on the Board of Family Law League.
