Helping Protect What is Important to You

At the Lenexa offices of The Kelly Law Firm, L.L.C., our attorney provides experienced legal counsel to clients throughout Johnson County and the surrounding Kansas City metropolitan area. From the initial filing of your case, to enforcement or modification actions following a divorce, we can help guide you through even the most complex family law matters. With more than 25 years of experience, our attorney knows how to successfully negotiate an agreement on your behalf or, when necessary, skillfully litigate your issues at trial.

To us, each client is an individual with a unique set of challenges and expectations. In order to successfully address family legal matters, it is important to give meaningful attention to your concerns. We will never treat you as just another case file number.

Integrity is a core principle of our legal practice. We will not make promises to you unless we are fully confident in our ability to keep them. It’s not about saying what you want to hear. It’s about reliably delivering every time.
