Russell Britton Kelly
As the son of a successful lawyer, Britt Kelly has been exposed to the judicial system and the law throughout his life. He observed his father help clients resolve personal injury and other cases while those hard working clients were in some of the most vulnerable times of their lives. It was, therefore, no surprise that Britt chose to attend law school after graduating from Sewanee: The University of the South in 2001.
Britt attended the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law at the University of Memphis, where he graduated magna cum laude in 2005 with the second highest grade point average in his class. After finishing law school, Britt started work as an attorney with a prestigious Charleston law firm and was named partner after six years at the firm. In August of 2016, Britt founded Kelly Law Firm, LLC.
Since becoming licensed to practice in 2005, Britt has helped numerous clients litigate and resolve construction defect claims, personal injury claims, and breach of contract disputes, among other matters. Because of his advocacy experience and skills, Britt has been recognized by Super Lawyers as a "Rising Star" and has the highest rating (AV) bestowed by Martindale Hubbell. These recognitions are a testament to Britt's knowledge of the law and his commitment to helping clients.
Britt currently holds leadership positions in the Charleston County Bar Association and the James L. Petigru American Inn of Court and serves on the Future of the Profession Committee of the South Carolina Bar. In the recent past, Britt served as President of the Charleston Lawyers Club, as a member of the House of Delegates of the South Carolina Bar, and as the Secretary/Treasurer of the Young Lawyer Division of the South Carolina Bar. Britt is a supporter of Operation Home, a non-profit organization that provides critical need construction home repairs to some of the most needy families in the Charleston area and is a recent past participant in the Charleston County School District's Reading Partners program, which is improving literacy among Charleston County's elementary school students.
