Kelly A. Driscoll, BBA, LLB

Barrister & Solicitor

Born and raised in Miramichi, New Brunswick, Kelly initially made her way to the Fredericton/Oromocto area when she attended the University of New Brunswick for both her B.B.A. and LL.B.  She was called to the bar in June 2009 and opened her own law practice in September 2009.

Believing that legal advice should not be unaffordable for members of the general public, Kelly volunteers her time with the Fredericton Legal Advice Clinic and other initiatives related to access to justice.

Kelly’s primary areas of practice include:

  • Family Law;
  • Real Estate; and
  • Wills & Estates.

In the rare moments when she is not working, Kelly can usually be found doting on one of her cats or attempting to sneak back into her office (…usually with a cat in tow).
