James W. Burdick | Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer & Healthcare Lawyer at Burdick Law, P.C.

Deanna Kelley is an outstanding criminal defense lawyer and a well respected litigator. When she was a prosecutor, many defense lawyers dreaded her courtroom prowess and ability to communicate and persuade a jury. Deanna's ability to achieve amazing results for her clients is well known and many defense lawyers seek out her advice when an issue they are facing is unusually complex or difficult. Judges and prosecutors know that when Deanna Kelley appears in court, she will do everything possible to win! I highly endorse and respect Attorney Deanna Kelley.

Deanna is an extremely talented attorney who aggressively fights for her client's rights.

Martin S. Baum | President at Baum and Associates

As a criminal defense attorney, if I were facing a criminal charge myself, there are colleagues whom I would turn to for help and those whom I would not trust. Deanna Kelley is one of about 4 or 5 that I would count on because she has proven herself again and again. Whether you're seeking a plea deal or planning to fight your charges all the way by taking it to Trial, Deanna is the lawyer who will pay attention to those important facts that lesser attorneys ignore, and her meticulously planned Trial strategies unravel like an intimidating checkmate that Prosecutors don't realize they're in until it's too late. I'm not being forced to write this review, so let the very fact that I felt compelled to give this endorsement stand as a testament to Deanna's prowess in the courtroom.
