Amicus Law & Mediation

About

At Kelly A. Driscoll Prof Corp, we have a client centred approach – meaning that we offer the kind of services that we would want if we needed a lawyer.  We get that a lot of people are nervous around lawyers so among other things, in order to put our clients at ease, we will:

  • Be approachable in our mannerisms;
  • Speak in plain language instead of attempting to impress with unnecessary legal jargon or unnecessary use of latin;
  • Help clients get their story out by asking the relevant questions;
  • Provide the legal advice in the manner that works best for our clients (i.e., in person or if the client prefers visual presentation, we can provide the advice in writing);
  • Make our expectations of clients clear from the beginning of the file and make clear what clients can expect from us;

Our areas of practice can be found on our services page.

  • Law Society of New Brunswick
  • Canadian Bar Association

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.

A proponent of access to justice, Kelly volunteers her time with the Fredericton Legal Advice Clinic as well as the Oromocto Legal Clinic.

Her unreasonably intense work ethic is balanced by her whimsical sense of humour and a very patient husband who reports that 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).

Kelly’s primary areas of practice include:

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