After graduating from Tulane University School of Law, Kelly practiced for many years as a trial attorney, prosecutor, and then DUI attorney in Houston, TX. DUI cases are often considered one of the most technically difficult cases to handle, due to the depth and breadth of knowledge required to win. However, Kelly is a recognized blood expert with a deep understanding of the science behind blood testing, which gave him a leg up in DUI cases and an excellent success rate.
When Kelly returned to private practice after four years on the bench as a judge, he redirected his practice toward educating his local community and expanded the types of cases he handled. With a dedicated team and extensive network of fellow lawyers across the country, Kelly is able to focus on the clients that he is best able to serve.
Outside of practicing law, Kelly spends his time with his family and enjoys fly fishing, carpentry, and cooking. He builds custom bamboo fly fishing rods by hand.
