Stephen P. Kelly

Stephen Kelly is licensed to practice in all Illinois courts as well as U.S. District court and state and federal appellate courts. Stephen is also licensed to practice in the State of Iowa, and a member of the Iowa Bar Association. He is recognized by his peers as an Illinois Leading Lawyer in workers’ compensation law.

With experience in large and medium-sized law firms in his background, Stephen Kelly knows how those firms operate and, as the lone attorney in his practice, he is not intimidated by numbers. He wants only to do the best job he can for his clients, starting with the initial consultation that he does himself rather than appointing a staff member to take the meeting. The same is true when a case reaches the courts; he will be there representing your case, protecting your rights.

“People don’t call an attorney because their life is going well. They want to know you are going to help them. They want results. That’s what I give them. I don’t think there is an attorney who will work as hard for you.”
