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.

Brian Prain | Criminal defense Attorney

More Than Just an Attorney
Hired attorney

If you ever find yourself in need of a defense attorney, it's hard to know where to begin. How does someone select an individual to speak for them and fight for them in what is most likely the most terrifying experience of their life? If this is you, and you are considering Deanna Kelley, you can confidently end your search now. Deanna is the one you want on your side. She not only knows the law inside and out, but having been a prosecutor, she has the distinct advantage of understanding the other side of the case. This gives her a strategic edge over other attorneys when formulating a strong case for her clients. With that said, what makes Deanna so special goes beyond her superior talent and knowledge of the law. She is a kind and compassionate person, and is understanding towards her clients. She is tough and direct when needed, yet still calm and reassuring to her clients in such a difficult time. If you haven't gone through a legal battle in your life, I can't possibly enforce how important it is to have someone on your side that believes in you, cares about you, and who you know is truly fighting tirelessly for your well-being. That person is Deanna Kelley. I am thankful every day to have had her on my side.
