About Our Firm

We are a team of local, client-oriented professionals. We share the goals and values of the individuals and families who flock to Belmont for its stability, safety, top-notch schools, and community spirit. Our founding partner, Attorney Michael D. Kelly, chose to limit his law practice to personal injury representations because he understands how a tragic, unexpected event can damage a well-planned future. Like so many Belmont residents, his goal is to help his clients protect those they love the most.

Attorney Kelly is an honors graduate of New England Law School, where he was on the law review. Since forming his practice, he has been named one of the top 40 lawyers under 40 in Massachusetts by the National Trial Lawyers Association. Attorney Kelly’s talents and legal sophistication could have landed him a job at a major downtown firm, but he found his purpose instead in helping individuals and families recover from devastating injury and tragic loss. He takes a personalized approach to every representation, meeting face-to-face with each of his clients, making sure they know he’s available around the clock if they need him, and even offering them a 30-day satisfaction guarantee on his services to show his commitment to earning their trust and confidence.

Although every circumstance of personal injury or tragic loss is unique, clients commonly seek our assistance after one or more of the following incidents:

  • Motor vehicle accidents. As anyone knows who has driven on Concord Ave. through Belmont on a busy day, particularly with the afternoon sun shining in their eyes, accidents happen here and cause serious injury. Kelly & Associates represents victims of single and multi-car accidents, large truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents in Belmont.
  • Pedestrian accidents. Belmont, sadly, is no stranger to pedestrian tragedies, as the death of a young mother of two Butler elementary students in August 2018 reminded us. At Kelly & Associates, we commit our entire resources to help families struggling with tragedies that occurred at intersections and school crossings.
  • Bicycle accidents. Belmont has also, unfortunately, seen its share of car-on-bicycle collisions on city streets. When drivers collide with cyclists or commit “doorings” by opening a car door into a cyclist’s path, the result is serious injury and fatality. Kelly & Associates is ready to help the victims of these accidents.
  • Boating accidents. Whether you’re rowing on the Charles or sailing in Boston Harbor, tragedy can strike on Boston-area waters. We represent victims of accidental drownings and boating/jet ski collisions throughout the area.
  • Public transportation accidents. Belmont residents who ride the Fitchburg line into town for work or play never imagine they might fall victim to an injury on a train, track, or platform. When accidents happen, seeking compensation from transportation authorities be a challenge, but Kelly & Associates is up to the task.
  • Construction accidents. Road and building construction workers risk their safety every day. When an incident on a job site injures a worker or tragically takes a life, Kelly & Associates can help the victim and victim’s family recovery compensation.
  • Unsafe property accidents. Belmont businesses and property owners should always keep their premises safe for visitors and customers. We can help victims who slip, trip, or fall on someone else’s property seek help for their injuries.
  • Dog attacks. Belmont parents and pedestrians justifiably worry about the dangers of unleashed or unsafe dogs. When a bite injures a child or an adult, we know how to hold pet owners accountable.
  • Defective products. Manufacturers of the products Belmont residents use every day for work and play have a duty to ensure those products are safe for intended use. When defective products harm someone, Massachusetts law gives victims the right to recover damages. We can help.


We deal with a range of injury cases and our team will help you fight for justice and maximum compensation if an act of negligence left you injured.

About Our Client-Centered Approach and Track Record of Results

Kelly & Associates takes client service serious. In every representation we handle, our first priority is to learn about our clients’ lives before and after their injury or loss and to identify their most pressing needs to enable them to recover. Then, we get to work.

We have the talent and know-how to investigate and litigate all manner of personal injury and wrongful death claims on behalf of Belmont residents and families. We aim to achieve the best possible outcomes tailored to each client’s particular needs and circumstances. Because of the strength of the compelling cases we prepare, we often negotiate settlements to serve our clients’ needs. When a negotiated resolution is not possible, however, we are prepared to bring our arguments to judges and juries around the Boston area.

We are proud of the results we have achieved for our clients, which include:

  • $145,000 for a client injured in a pedestrian accident;
  • $100,000 for a client injured in a head-on collision;
  • $70,000 for a woman struck by a vehicle while crossing the street.

At Kelly & Associates, we also understand our clients may struggle financially after an injury or loss. To accommodate their needs, we never charge for an initial consultation. We also often agree to represent clients on a “contingent fee” basis, meaning we do not get paid unless and until our clients recover compensation through a settlement or jury verdict.
