Determination has helped Kelly successfully and aggressively defend his client's interests since joining GJTBS in his first year out of law school. Kelly is always looking for innovative ways to resolve his client's issues, continually focusing on serving his client's needs without compromising each specific client's expectations. Since joining the firm, Kelly has focused his practice on all manner of commercial and personal injury litigation in both state and federal court. Kelly has had the privilege of representing clients in litigation involving admiralty and maritime law, oil and gas law, healthcare liability, property law and general casualty defense including employer's liability. Kelly has also represented clients in administrative venues, including claims brought under the Longshore and Harbor Worker's Compensation Act and workers' compensation claims. Kelly is licensed to practice in Texas and Colorado, and has also litigated in Louisiana, Florida, Pennsylvania, New York and Arkansas.
In 2011 and 2012, Kelly was named a Texas Super Lawyers Rising Stars Edition, which recognizes the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state. Compiled through peer nomination and research, only two percent of attorneys in under 40-years old receive this distinction.
Outside of the courtroom Kelly is an active member of the community. Kelly has been a volunteer for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on the Breeders Greeters Committee since 2008. He is also Co-chair of the Houston Young Lawyers Animal Welfare Committee and regularly volunteers for BARC (Bureau of Animal Regulation and Control) Houston and the Houston Humane Society.
Kelly enjoys playing golf, snowboarding, and competing in triathlons. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, Cynthia, his son, Liam, and his two golden retrievers, Duke and Duchess.
