A Member at Stoll Keenon Ogden’s Evansville office, Kelly serves as chair of the firm’s Family Law practice. She joined SKO in 2017 as part of the firm’s merger with Bamberger, Foreman, Oswald & Hahn, and has extensive legal experience. She is a Certified Family Law Specialist, as certified by the Indiana Family Law Certification Board, and is a registered Family Law Mediator. She specializes in cases involving families in transition with business interests and other high-value assets.
Kelly helps lessen the difficulties of divorce for families through “collaborative practice,” a growing legal specialty that’s focused on helping parties avoid litigation. She provides options to minimize conflicts, consulting as needed with financial planners and other 3rd-party resources.
Mediation is a large part of Kelly’s practice, and she works both with represented parties and parties who have not yet or may not retain counsel, to determine what issues they can resolve by agreement and help them reduce those agreements to writing.
Kelly also assists clients through four other practice groups at the firm, including Business Litigation, Arbitration & Mediation, Trusts & Estates, and Tort, Trial & Insurance.
Whether she’s handling a case as a mediator or representing an individual client, Kelly leverages her creative problem-solving skills to arrive at an agreeable resolution, in a manner that’s compassionate, efficient and cost effective.
