Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: NY12828
~I have been a guardianship attorney for over 20 years. She is one of the best, most informed guardianship judges I have had the pleasure of being before. I do not practice in Suffolk County. She was smart, knew her evidence and Article 81. Very impressed and I wish her well.


Comment #: NY10682
Judge Kelley showed tremendous concern and compassion in two separate (but related0 trials where I witnessed her in action.


Comment #: NY9929
Horrible judge. Incredibly opinionated. She lets her personal opinions and beliefs affect her rulings. Very biased.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: NY5472
Friendly judge
Kind person

But firm on her decision

Domestic violence courts must implement laws to make it a felony if a victim lies and calls police to have there spouse arrested for false domestic violence and destroys the defendants life


Comment #: NY5471
Friendly judge, very kind, but firm on her decisions

But There is a great concern for domestic violence victims that use the court as a tool to destroy the defendants life with court orders and full stay away that destroy the parent and children's relationship

New laws should be implemented that is a victim is found to be lying and committing perjury to have there spouse arrested for a false domestic charge. It should be a felony if the court find out if the victim is lying
