Attorney Profile

For more than a decade, Kelly has represented hundreds of injured children and adults, dedicating a significant amount of her practice to advocating for individuals with serious brain injuries. A legal force and advocate for those suffering from brain injuries, Kelly has been active in organizing speaking engagements and presenting to attorneys, neighborhood associations, schools, and civic groups throughout New York State and at national conferences.  She has been an active member of the Brain Injury Association of New York State (BIANYS) since 2006, serving on their Board of Directors since 2014, and participating on both their Resource Management Committee and Governance Committees.

Kelly is the supervising partner of our firm’s Lead Poisoning and Toxic Exposure Litigation Group, one of the leading lead poisoning injury litigation groups in upstate New York. Due to her extensive experience in this area, she is frequently consulted by other attorneys, landlords, tenants, government agencies and the media about lead poisoning and its effects.

A partner within our Family and Matrimonial Law Department, Kelly devotes a substantial amount of her practice to clients dealing with difficult family matters, including separations, divorce, custody, parenting time disputes, spousal maintenance, and child support.  She takes great pride in compassionate collaboration with her clients while guiding them through these difficult personal matters.  She was honored to be designated as an Attorney for Children by the Third Judicial Department Office of Attorneys for Children in 2016, and receives appointments for representation of children by judges in Rensselaer County Family Court.  Through her involvement with the Albany County Bar Association, she is also a monthly volunteer at the Albany County Family Court Help Center.

Kelly’s community service efforts also include her service to the Third Judicial District’s Committee on Character and Fitness, her active participation in the End Distracted Driving Student Awareness Initiative, and her former role of Vice-President of the Donald P. Sutherland Parent and Teachers Organization.
