What we Do

Represent Small Businesses and their Owners

  • We provide start-ups with flat fee and ala carte options to fit their budget and needs, while protecting their owners from personal liability and excessive taxes.
  • We counsel existing businesses that are facing compliance issues or new regulations threatening their industry.
  • If you find yourself in a courtroom, you need someone like Brenden who will fight like hell and do what it takes to win.

Represent Victims of Legal Malpractice

  • We represent individuals and businesses that have been injured financially or faced major consequences for placing their trust in the hands of an ineffective or unethical attorney.
  • Ohio lawyers are required to carry legal malpractice insurance to cover these types of situations, just like doctors are required to have medical malpractice insurance. However, you only have one year to file a claim against your attorney, so time is of the essence.

Represent Families and Individuals in need of Estate Planning

  • We design and build estate plans based on your unique needs, concerns, and aspirations.
  • Our estate plans are about more than just “who” is to get “what” when you pass away. We believe that your estate plan should be about how you want to enjoy your retirement, achieve your life’s goals, and pass on a legacy to your children & grandchildren.

Brenden is exceptional. During our initial consultation regarding a real estate matter, he was transparent and candid about my likelihood of winning a lawsuit (which was low) and advised exploring alternative options. He invested time in locating an attorney specializing in land use and zoning for me. Brenden was not only great to talk to, but also extremely knowledgeable, and I highly endorse him. Thanks a lot for your help!

I hired Brenden to create terms of service for a website. First, I saw the many automated services that are offered. Legal zoom, rocket lawyer, etc. I ALMOST decided on using them for a mere $200. But, as my grandpa who fought in WW2 always told me “you get what you pay for”. I shopped around because my situation was unique. I made dozens and dozens of phone calls to lawyers looking to help. Only 10% of my calls were returned. Brenden came in with a flat fee for less than 1/2 of the competitors quote. I met with him today. He was VERY thorough and thought of important coverages I did not think of. I thank God I found him. He communicates well and promptly…. Not like most attorneys. I could not be more pleased with my finished product. Honestly…. He should charge more. I am happy to give my personal reference to him. -Beekeeper Mike

Professional. Efficient. Caring. Brenden assisted me in the purchase of a dental practice. His calm manner, keen insights, and negotiating skills were invaluable during this stressful process. I am grateful for his personal touch and tireless persistence. He helped make my dream a reality. I would highly recommend Brenden to other dentists and business owners looking for a lawyer who understands their needs and cares about their success.

Working with Brenden Kelley on my oil and gas lease was a fantastic experience. He explained everything clearly, added crucial protections to the contract, and helped to secure a great lease rate. I wholeheartedly recommend Brenden to anyone in need of legal representation, especially in oil and gas lease agreements. His commitment to his clients' best interests is clearly evident, and I have no doubt that he will continue to provide exceptional service to others.
