Hear What Our Clients Have to Say
“Kelly is as good as they come. I’ve worked with other attorneys and she stands out as one that is more than capable, intelligent, trustworthy, easy to work with, and is a fighter. In fact, you will not find someone more genuine as her. If you want to be just another case number that needs to be attended to, keep looking. But if you want someone that truly cares about you and your family; someone that will go the extra mile, go with Kelly Fritsch. You will be in good hands.”
“After a bad experience with a prior law firm handling my case, I was lucky to be referred by a colleague to Alicia Palmer at Kelly L. Fritsch, P.C. Alicia was very professional, compassionate, hardworking, understanding and most importantly highly knowledgeable in her field. She always had time for her client (even off the clock), was very patient, and had answers to my questions and solutions to any problems that came up. I felt so confident with her by my side in court. My divorce which lasted over a year with the previous firm was closed in less than three months after Alicia took over. I highly recommend this firm because their goal is to obtain positive outcomes for clients.”
