Kelly Dancy is an attorney with the Walny Legal Group LLC in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A top-rated attorney with over nine years of legal experience, Ms. Dancy focuses her practice exclusively on estate planning and administration, and she finds great reward in being able to help so many across the greater Milwaukee metro region protect themselves and their assets for the future and provide a lasting legacy for their loved ones.

A 2006 magna cum laude graduate of Saint Mary's College, Ms. Dancy attended Marquette University Law School, where she obtained her Juris Doctor in 2009. The State Bar of Wisconsin admitted her to practice that same year, and Ms. Dancy honed her legal skills at several other area law firms before joining the Walny Legal Group LLC in 2012.

Throughout the course of her career, Ms. Dancy has achieved notable success assisting clients in drafting wills, trusts, marital property agreements, powers of attorney, HIPAA waivers and other important instruments that detail their final wishes regarding health care, asset protection and business succession. She also routinely advises both fiduciaries and beneficiaries alike with all aspects of probate and trust administration, including representing their rights and interest during highly contested proceedings.

Well-versed in her field, Ms. Dancy writes extensively and conducts lectures and seminars across her region and throughout the country on a variety of legal topics related to estate and trust planning and administration. She also maintains active involvement in several professional legal organizations, including the Milwaukee Estate Planning Forum, and she currently serves as president for the Milwaukee chapter of the Society of Financial Service Professionals.

Dedicated to helping those less fortunate, Ms. Dancy volunteers her services with the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic and the Wills for Heroes Foundation, and she has earned recognition from the Milwaukee Bar Association and Marquette University Law School for her selfless contributions and pro bono services. Devoted to her local community as well, Ms. Dancy serves with the Milwaukee School of Engineering Planned Giving Advisory Council and the Greater Milwaukee Foundation Young Advisers Committee.

In 2016, the Wisconsin Law Journal named her as an Up and Coming Lawyer in the region, and she has received several other awards and honors for her professionalism and service.
