"I aspire to leave my clients satisfied that they were vigorously defended and that their case was resolved with their best interests being the primary concern".
Kevin L. Kelly
New York Office
New York, NY 10006
Obtaining critical factual information as quickly as possible is the basis of Mr. Kelly’s proven success. He believes in analyzing each case early to determine if it should be defended vigorously or resolved by earlier mediation or direct settlement negotiations.
Mr. Kelly has spent more than three decades in the practice of law. A partner at MSZL&M since 2001, Mr. Kelly has found that in those cases that are identified early as being defensible, it is essential to prepare the case fully for trial, because a fully prepared case is necessary for success at trial and often leads to a favorable settlement at the courthouse steps. As a former Managing Attorney for several major insurers, he remains cognizant of the needs of the industry.
Mr. Kelly received a B.A. cum laude at St. Michaels College in 1970 and graduated from Rutgers-Camden School of law in 1977. He is admitted to the New Jersey Bar, District of NJ, New York Bar; Southern District and Eastern District of New York. He is a member of the New York State Bar Association and the Defense Research Institute.
A Ramsey, New Jersey native, Mr. Kelly currently lives in Staten Island, and has two children. He is an avid skier and traveler as well as a college football and basketball fanatic.
