Balamuth Law Client Reviews & Testimonials
Kelly represented us in a wrongful death case after our 19 year old daughter was killed in a car crash. In the shock and confusion that followed the accident we hadn't even thought of taking any legal action. Kelly was referred to us by someone we trusted so we set up an appointment to meet with her.
We were extremely impressed with Kelly. She was very professional, which was nothing more than we expected. What was more important, and what we hadn't anticipated, was the empathy, caring and sensitivity she showed us throughout the process. She let us set the pace of how much involvement and frequency of updates we wanted in the proceedings. She made sure we knew what we needed to know, when we needed to know it. She made herself available anytime we needed, or just wanted, to talk and always made it as convenient as possible for us.
Kelly always gave us her best legal advice and helped us make the decisions we had to make along the way.
We would have no hesitation recommending Kelly to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney. She genuinely cares about her clients and treats them with the utmost respect and sincerity.

In September of 2009, I was hit on my motorcycle. Ironically, as if out of a movie, a lawyer showed up on the scene. Before deciding to use "Superman", I was given an incredible report on a very personable yet professional lawyer by the name of Kelly Balamuth.
Now, she made me no promises other than the fact that she would do everything in her power to make sure that ALL my needs were taken care of and this was over the phone during our initial conversation. It did help that the at fault driver admitted fault and this was also supported by the police report. But... if you have ever had to deal with "the other parties" insurance company as well as their attorney, then you know nothing is settled until the check is in hand and clears the bank! Kelly made sure of this indeed!
From the moment I walked into her office, I was treated with warmth and genuine care and kindness starting with her assistant, Parya, who seems to have a permanent smile on her kind face. You could say that I am bias because "I was not at fault" and my case was "easy" but you would not have the full story. Kelly went beyond the call of duty. SHE acquired medical services for me when I was at a lost for this. SHE took the time to "teach" me about how the system works and what I "should" do as well as "not" do. I never felt alone, at anytime, in the entire process. In fact, I felt as if she worked for me as my personal on staff attorney! Kelly and her staff kept me in the loop every step of the way. She would even call me just to see how I was doing. A simple courtesy forgotten in this world of what can you do for me and how much can I make from it!
My case was settled in a very timely fashion. Kelly even took the time to call and email me while she was on a scheduled brief vacation! She did not pass me over to her partner or anyone else for that matter. It was like she took what I was going through personally!
Here is the biggest clue to her personality as well as a testament to her character... My case has been settled for several months now. All checks have been deposited and Kelly has been paid. I have received follow up emails, texts and personal phone calls from Kelly just to say hi and to make sure that I am doing well! How many lawyers do you know of caring this much about you AFTER the checks have been cashed and the baby put to bed?! I am trying to figure out a way to steal her away and make her the personal lawyer for my business!
You would be wise to meet and discuss your case with Balamuth Law! Even if it is just to have a "True & Fair" objective and knowledgeable opinion to your accident and injury case.
Thank You Kelly! I truly, from my heart, appreciate every single thing you have done for me and my family!
