While studying for the bar exam in the summer of 1990, Sadam Hussein invaded Kuwait. The
ensuing mobilization preceding Operation Desert Storm inspired Attorney Kelly to apply to the
Air Force Judge Advocate General Corp. As a result, he was commissioned a first lieutenant
and entered active duty in the spring of 1991. Although Desert Storm was largely over by
this time, Attorney Kelly saw service in the Middle East in support of Operation Southern
Watch and Operation Enduring Freedom. .
Upon retiring from the Air Force, Attorney Kelly returned to his Worcester County roots to
open his own legal office. In his civilian practice, he applies to each client’s case the values
and skills cultivated over two decades of military service. He prides himself on providing his
clients with honest, zealous and determined legal representation
