Kelly has developed a practice in Landlord and tenant matters acting for both housing associations and clients, in particular legal aid clients.  Her experience ranges from possession proceedings to injunctions and boundary disputes.  She also has a working knowledge of non-residential disputes and disrepair matters.  Owing to the nature of her practice Kelly is able to sensitively deal with clients with mental and physical health difficulties as well as other personal issues which regularly arise in these matters.

Kelly was called to the Bar in 2017 and has had a successful mixed practice since completing pupillage.  She now practices Civil and Family Law representing parties in a range of matters and hearings.

Prior to commencing pupillage, Kelly undertook the BPTC at BPP Leeds.  Whilst at BPP Kelly acted as a student advisor at the BPP Legal Advice Clinic which gave her the chance to work with real clients on a variety of civil and family matters.  She was also a finalist in the St Philip’s ADR competition.

Kelly obtained a first class LLB (Hons) degree at Leeds Beckett university.  During her degree, Kelly was a finalist in the DAC Beachcroft Mooting Shield competition and also came third in the Herbert Smith Freehills annual advocacy competition.  She also obtained 93% in her Advocacy module in her final year.

Alongside her studies, Kelly ran her own audio-transcription business, converting witness evidence from audio and DVD formats into transcripts for solicitors and the courts.

Kelly was the three-time National Blind Tennis champion (B1 category) in 2013, 2014 and 2016, as well as being part of the National B1 Doubles champion team in 2016. She also enjoys travelling, cooking and outdoor activities.
