Practice areas of Attorney Thomas Kelley
Criminal Law: As a defense attorney, I have handled hundreds of criminal cases in my 30 years of practice in both Federal and State courts. I have represented individuals accused of all types of crimes including drug trafficking, sex crimes, assault, theft, white collar crimes, burglary, robbery, DUI and traffic violations. Recently I have represented an increasing number of DUI clients because many more people have been affected by the numerous changes in the law. These changes make it easier to be convicted and expose offenders to harsher penalties.
Family Law: Divorce, Dissolution, Custody. My 30 years of experience includes the gamut from simple dissolutions to complex divorce and custody matters. I have litigated custody matters in both the Domestic Relations and Juvenile Courts. I have represented parents who have been threatened with having their children taken away by the local children’s services agency. I am also experienced in paternity actions.
Civil Litigation: Civil litigation is a regular and continuing part of my practice. I have litigated a wide variety of civil matters, including but not limited to contract cases, real estate transactions, residential construction matters, personal injury, consumer litigation, business litigation, and workers compensation.
Personal Injury/Workers Compensation: I have handled auto accidents and other types of personal injury cases. A large part of my practice has been devoted to representing workers and businesses in cases dealing with work place injuries. Representation in workers comp cases is provided at both the administrative and court level. I have handled workers compensation cases that have involved simple injuries to those involving catastrophic injuries including death.
Probate: I have experience in counseling individuals for simple estate planning needs including Wills, Living Wills, Healthcare Powers of Attorney, Financial Powers of Attorney, Transfer on Death Deeds and other probate avoidance devices. I have also processed estates of deceased individuals in Probate Court. In addition, I handle Guardianships and step-parent Adoptions.
