She represents counsel in felony and misdemeanor cases, from the filing of a criminal complaint through trial and post-trial review, on issues ranging from DUI, Possession, Theft, Assault and Drug Trafficking to First-Degree Homicide. Kelly also handles plea negotiations, treatment court resolutions, probation and parole violations as well as juvenile court.
Before entering private practice, Kelly made sure every voice was heard as an attorney at the Chester County Public Defender’s Office. She handled all aspects of felony and misdemeanor cases from the preliminary hearing to trial and through all stages of state appellate review. She also served as first chair for numerous jury trials, including first-degree homicide and more than 15 other felony trials.
