Former Client Testimonials
Dear Michele, Thank you so much for your note. Your insight is truly appreciated. You were so important to our case and instrumental in the successful outcome for our daughter and grandchildren. We will all forever be grateful. You are an excellent and caring lawyer.
Dear Ryan, I cannot thank you enough for your steadfast representation and the wisdom and kindness you have shown me as I have weathered this wild ride the past two years. I am SO happy and relieved to have my son safe, thriving and going to school with the neighborhood kids next year! I would highly recommend your services to any parent concerned about their child's well being. - Andrea
Mike was great defending my son from a marijuana possession charge that looked like was going to be elevated. He successfully negotiated a probationary settlement. Mike also gave my son the facts and counseled him about what is actions would mean for him. He wants to see his young clients fix their lives and helps them get on the right path. He gave my son a second chance. He is young and very smart. Highly recommend
"I have been meaning to tell you this, but you and your team have given me peace in my life. The work you have performed on the divorce action and house sale issue has provide me a sense of peace because capable people are properly handling my legal issues. This is your area of professional expertise and I trust you and your firm to guide me through these legal obstacles. I sleep better at night knowing you are representing me. I will definitely recommend your firm to someone who needs your expertise. Thanks again."
Jonathan handled my daughter's first offense DUI/OWI. I contacted him online after business hours and he called back first thing the next morning. He took the time to speak to both my daughter and myself about her case. He had a very pro-active approach to her case, a plan, when we had no plan. He offered good advice that worked in getting her case reduced to the lowest offense without going to trial. Jonathan was exemplary in contacting us via email and by phone, and we always knew exactly what was going on in the case. We would recommend him to our family and friends.
During the past 5 years, I have retained Kelly and Kelly PC for several corporate issues and several personal issues. I must say they have restored my faith in attorneys. They are extremely professional and have a flawless record as far as I am concerned. I HIGHLY recommend John, Michele, Ryan & Kelsey plus the entire legal staff at Kelly and Kelly….they have been absolutely fantastic in every facet of the Law…with that special personal touch!!!!!! - Sincerely, L. Stock / President In Stock Marketing Services, LLC
From my first conversation with Mike, I immediately become aware of his integrity and commitment, and moreover, the passion he exudes for his work. Any concern I raised was immediately addressed. Phone calls were answered in a timely manner and his staff is very friendly and helpful. Information I requested about the process was promptly forwarded. And there was never a complaint from his staff. They were always courteous and attentive, making me feel that my case was the only one being handled by the firm, when in reality I was likely one of hundreds of clients. That’s right, the Law Offices of Kelly & Kelly has gained a reputation as the “go-to” firm for Family (Divorce / Wills-Trust) cases. Mike's genuine warmth and kindness make it near impossible not to become his friend. " Thanks Mike.” - Rick

They have a wonderful balance of youthful energy steered by the experienced wisdom of their senior partners. With this winning combination of youth and wisdom, I highly recommend the Kelly and Kelly Law firm for all your legal matters." - Mike Ladwig - Owner and President - Northville UPS Store
Mike is an awesome lawyer, he always treated us with respect and kept us informed of what was happening. He was able to see clearly thru the other party and ALL of their witnesses when they were clearly lying and fabricating their testimonies and was able to bring out the facts. Mike was able to successfully get a change in domicile to the state in which I have been living so that I could continue to have all of my children living with me; in which to my understanding is the first time the judge has made such an order. I am happy and so satisfied with the overall outcome of my case. - Jes
Excellent, Professional, and Effective - Jonathan Paul is professional, yet I did not feel like I was talking to a machine. He was friendly, and kept me posted on a regular basis on what was happening with my case. He was able to reduce me from a misdemeanor to a CI just by talking with the prosecutor. Could not have been happier, I would highly recommend him.
Don't know how or why anybody would enter a courtroom without representation, even in minor cases. Mr Kelly took complete control of our case from beginning to end. He was very assertive and knowledgeable. I'm happy that we used Kelly & Kelly lawyers, and would definitely use Michael in the future. - Samantha, Northville, MI
I first came across Jonathan's name on this exact website, and I read all of his amazing reviews. This, plus the fact that he works from Northville (which is where I was arrested for OWI) are really what prompted me to contact him. I sent him an email detailing lots of things from my terrible experience, and he emailed AND texted me back right away, even though it was a Sunday and he was out with his wife. He later sent me an even more extensive email telling me when he thinks he could do to help me in my particular case. This kind of prompt and thourogh feedback was standard the entire time I worked with Jonathan.
Some background on my case in particular: I was arrested in Northville Township for OWI with a BAC of 0.21. This technically falls under the Michigan Super Drunk law. However, as it was my first offense of any kind, they only charged me with misdemenor OWI. I spent the night in jail, my car was impounded, it was terrifying. I am almost done with college in the medical field and I just kept thinking "my life is over."
So I hired Jonathan after meeting with him. He used to be a prosecutor so he knows both sides of the game. He put me on a unique "proactive approach" which was AMAZING and completely helped me out in the eyes of the court. He also really helped to walk me through the process and ease my mind about what to expect in terms of sentencing.
Well today I had my day in court, and I have been dreading this day for a month now. Thanks to Jonathan's approach, he was able to convince the prosecution to give me a lesser charge of OWVI (the lowest and cheapest alcohol-related driving charge). This is a HUGE success, especially since I could've been charged with felony Super Drunk. I was also given 9 months of reporting probation with only holiday blows, 5 days of community service of my choice, and an alcohol class that probation recommends. I did NOT lose my license (which was another huge fear of mine), and only have a restricted license (work, school, medical appts) for 90 days.
I am so happy I chose to work with Jonathan Paul. Without him I probably would have never been offered the lesser charge, as it was his unique proactive approach that finally made the prosecutor offer it to me. He really makes you see that you're not a bad person because you got a DUI/OWI, you just made a really bad mistake. I would highly, highly recommend Jonathan Paul to anyone in need of a DUI Lawyer, because I could not have gotten that outcome without him. - OWI Client
"I hired Kelly & Kelly Attorneys at Law to represent my son (18 1/2 years old at the time of the incident) He was charged with a misdemeanor and a moving violation while traveling as a car passenger in a local highway. The police officer charged my son and the driver with a misdemeanor and both were detained and kept in jail overnight. My son was not allowed to make any calls until the next day when he contacted me and explained the situation.
Kelly & Kelly Law firm reviewed my son's case and accepted my request to represent my son. Mr. Michael Kelly was assigned to this case. Michael did and prepared a great in depth analysis of the incident which was presented during the Court Appeal Case. He did an outstanding in-depth analysis-review of my son's police report. Michael was able to identify and detect several inconsistencies in the police report write up.
My son's case was dismissed by the preceding Judge.No charges or records of misdemeanor were filed!!!
I am extremely thankful to Mr. Kelly for his professional legal representation and high objectivity handling my son's appeal case.
Yes, I do recommend Mr. Michael Kelly to anyone who is in search or in a need for legal counseling and/or representation."
Mr. Kelly is an amazing attorney, extremely smart, an effective legal counselor and with a great knowledge of the Law. - Mac
Mr. Kelly secured our monumental victory despite facing strong opposition from the prosecutor and caseworker!
Not only did he effectively and expertly navigate thru the many obtacles which existed in our case, he went on to present a defense which was clear, concise, law-based and extremely difficult to refute and/or contest.
Every aspect of Mr. Kelly's defense was on target and effective, resulting in diversion from adjudication. - Don
Kelly and Kelly law firm is a professional and personable network of attorneys. I was treated like a family member and a client. I would recommend Kelly and Kelly law to anyone going through a divorce or any other legal matters. They are a top notch legal team and I truly appreciate the years of experience this firm has resulting in the positive outcome of my case. Thank you again Michelle, Ryan, Michael and Jonathan.
Mike represented me very well. Even though the opposing counsel was derogatory towards me, made spurious and fraudulent claims, Mike was steadfast. He has kept me abreast of any changes or information promptly, and was always accessible. There were points where the opposing counsel was so infuriating, it was a relief to have someone able to defend and soundly refute the claims and even be able to respond with significant points to weaken their case. This allowed me to be able to relax a bit knowing that Mike was there to back me up.
Mike was also a support through some of the stressful times as incredulous things were found out in regards to treatment my son was enduring. Mike was invested in my case and truly cared about the results. - Chris
Hi Ryan & Mike & also Mom & Dad,
I just wanted to take a minute to tell you want I think of you Guys. First of all I know we lost in court today but that doesn't say anything about what I think of the job you did for me.

Dear Michele, You are Awesome and the most intelligent and efficient counselor - with our gratitude and admiration for your outstanding performance - Thanks again M & L
It is with great pleasure that I now recommend Jonathan Paul. Jonathan is a quick learner. When Jonathan took my case he learned all the facts of the cases and started to conduct legal research for different motions and issues involved in my case. Jonathan’s drive has led him to achieve a successful legal career as well as a very successful outcome in my particular case. - Oakland County Matter
Mr. Paul did a great job with my son's case. He had an assault charge in which Mr. Paul got dismissed, with no fines and no probation. He is very responsive and contacts you back right away. He was patient and answered all questions and addressed all of our concerns. He was very encouraging to work with and also very knowledgeable. He also personally encouraged my son after the case to stay positive and focused. We could not have asked for a better outcome! We were very pleased with his services.
Thank you Jonathan. You are a good man and a fine attorney. I'm very happy I chose you to represent me. I am pleased with the outcome of this case. Aside from complete dismissal of all charges (which was highly unlikely) this is a favorable outcome. Hopefully I won't need your services in the future, but if I do or I know someone who does, you will be the man we contact. - Macomb County Criminal Matter
I feel great! It's all falling off of my shoulders. I cannot express enough how thankful I am. What a complete mess you helped me resolve. The whole world just opened up for me again. While it may be standard operations for you it was a life saver me me and my kids.
I was recently charged with Retail Fraud 3rd degree. I've never been in trouble with the law before therefore I wanted the best attorney to represent me. In doing my research I came across Jonathan's website. After I read through his clients reviews, his proactive approach and his professional background I gave him a call. Because he took applications as to who he represents, I knew he would not be too busy for me and my thousands of questions...And I was right! Jonathan was available to me via text, phone and email 24/7..literally! He replies to my texts at midnight! (No joke)
Needless to say, my case was dismissed and I can't thank him enough. I truly believe that his proactive approach along with his previous experience working as a prosecuting attorney, all worked in my favor! If you find yourself on the wrong side of the law, call Jonathan! He fought hard for me and he will definitely do the same for you.
