"His previous experience working in the DA's office allowed him to give me invaluable insight as my defense attorney, leading to a successful outcome in my case."

Kevin Kelley attorney


I am an experienced trial attorney dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes for my clients in difficult circumstances. My practice focuses criminal law, but I also handle select personal injury, civil litigation, and real estate matters. I served as a Deputy District Attorney for Washington County for over a decade and have tried more than 300 criminal cases to verdicts. My comprehensive understanding of how prosecutors approach cases now helps me excel at defending the rights of individuals charged with crimes.

I am a graduate of the National Advocacy College in South Carolina and have attended ongoing training in the criminal law field since I became an attorney in 2003. I am admitted to practice law in both Oregon and Washington.
