Meet Atty. Kelly

Your personal advisor, advocate and ally.

Matthew-Kelly-Lawyer-Kingston-PAWhen things go wrong, sometimes the first step is finding a lawyer who will take the time to listen to your story. Why hire a huge law firm that pushes hundreds of cases through each month? Why get stuck dealing with secretaries and paralegals at what, arguably, could be the most critical time in your life. If you ever needed direct access to legal expertise, that time is probably now. Attorney Matthew Kelly is here to help you.

Since 1992, Attorney Kelly has provided his clients with intelligent counsel and aggressive action to help them accomplish their goals. He believes strongly that everyone, no matter their circumstances, deserves the full protection of the law.

Even as a small child, an innate sense of fairness and justice was a driving force in moving him forward, personally and professionally. Admired for his staunch integrity and unyielding tenacity, Attorney Kelly is both a formidable ally and a supportive advocate.

A native of the region, he currently lives in Forty Fort, Pennsylvania, just a short drive from the office. He supports many community organizations and is an active member of the Forty Fort Lions Club. A huge Penn State fan, Attorney Kelly also enjoys golf and working out at the gym.
