Kelley | Uustal is probably not the firm for you. We work relentlessly to achieve personal victories for our clients and that means we make sacrifices. Our clients have come to us in life-altering circumstances and we are constantly aware our actions and our abilities can be the difference between staying in this devastating place or moving beyond it. It means the gravity of helping them achieve their personal victory literally keeps us awake at night.  When we think we have gone as far as we can for an answer, we look further.

If you have an exceptional legal mind and are satisfied meeting the billable hour requirement each month and working years without ever taking a deposition or getting into the courtroom, Kelley | Uustal is not the place for you. If you are satisfied being a staff member who follows directions, gets to work on time, and does good work but never feels ownership and real contribution to what happens at the firm, Kelley | Uustal is not the place for you.

But if you are truly the very best at what you do and want to contribute to delivering personal victories for people who have been catastrophically changed by the negligent and sometimes intentional acts of others, please review our website and get to know who we are. Then, let us hear from you. A meaningful career awaits those with dedication to excellence and changing lives.
