Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
After practicing law and working as a neutral in both mediations and arbitrations in the State of Texas, respected attorney and trained alternative dispute resolution (ADR) professional John W. Kelly, Jr. recently announced he was bringing his dedication to community service, his clients’ interests, and justice to the nation’s fastest-growing online ADR portals Mediation.com and Arbitration.com.
“In every situation, I bring my 38 years of experience as a practicing trial attorney to bear,” said Kelly. “That experience makes me an effective mediator or arbitrator because I help both sides recognize their strengths and weaknesses, helping to resolve the conflict as fairly and reasonably as possible. I’m proud of that work and want more people to be aware of it, so I’m working to raise my online profile.”
A graduate of the University of Kansas School of Law and a member of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section of Texas State Bar as well as the Association of Attorney-Mediators, Mr. Kelly currently focuses his practice on areas of commercial law, construction law, contract law, employment law, insurance, personal injury, workplace, wrongful death situations, child custody, divorce, and family law matters. He received his ADR training in Civil Law mediation and Family Law Mediation conducted by the A.A. White Dispute Resolution Center and has pursued continuing education in this field ever since.
A staunch supporter of his community, Mr. Kelly has served on the Boards of the Harris County Dispute Resolution Center, the Houston Grand Opera, the Mental Health Association of Greater Houston, the Houston Area Urban League, Fort Bend Lawyers Care, and the Fort Bend County Bar Association where he currently serves as Its President. He has been previously included among Texas Super Lawyers in the field of Civil Litigation.
