Atlanta, Georgia, November 18, 2019 — Attorney Cheryl D.

Ms. Kelly credits conscientious attention to client satisfaction as her number one power in an arsenal of legal training, strategies and experience. “We routinely go the extra mile and take opportunities to refine the client experience.

Avvo was founded in 2006 as an online tool to help people find and connect with highly capable legal professionals in their community. It rates and reviews nearly 97 percent of practicing lawyers across the United States and ultimately awards legal professionals of merit based on Avvo’s formula for evaluating client reviews, disciplinary actions, peer endorsements, and attorney submitted information.

Ms. Kelly garnered five star ratings from past clients who reviewed their experience working with her, highlighting her winning ethic and approach as “professional, communicates and informs, well-prepared and appropriately restrained & aggressive”. Reflecting on the implications of earning the award she said, “Being approachable and professional, but relatable is KEY to establishing a trusting relationship with a client. When you have the trust and confidence of a client, there is better communication and a better chance to convey and deliver your client’s wishes in mediation or litigation.”

Praised by colleagues as “the client whisperer” this 2019 Client’s Choice Avvo Award winner also distinguishes herself with the Bachelors of Arts Degree in Legal Studies from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia and Juris Doctor from the University of Georgia School of Law in Athens, Georgia. Notably, as a law student at UGA, Ms. Kelly founded the school’s first Family Law Society. She has studied law in Oxford, England and Edinburgh, Scotland. All told, Ms. Kelly has more than 15 years of experience handling complex litigation matters from every aspect, as a legal assistant, paralegal and as a practicing attorney.

Now in her second year as founder and CEO of C. Kelly Law, LLC., located in Atlanta, Georgia, Ms. Kelly envisions growth of a robust and streamlined practice that serves clients needs effectively and efficiently. To achieve that objective, she emphasizes client information and education. “I prioritize education and making information accessible to the client whether in one-on-one consultation or in group settings such as in empowerment seminars like my recent Super Dads conferences. It is a win-win when clients are equipped to self-advocate even as C. Kelly Law pursues legal strategies,” she said.
