Brenden is a young litigator with an already impressive range of experience. Brenden first starting working for Bill Wuliger at the ripe old age of 17 as a document clerk and became part of the furniture before he even went to law school. Brenden is a specialist in managing the massive documentary burdens of large cases and works tirelessly to find that one nuanced argument his client needs. Don’t let his boyish grin fool you, he is wise beyond his years and is ferociously loyal to his clients.
When it was time to decide where he would begin his fledgling legal career, there was only one option: to work for his mentor in the City that he loves. Brenden and Bill share a bond that only comes from knowing each other and working together for over a decade. The two have been known to crack jokes that only they find amusing. But he also learned what it takes to be a good attorney and more importantly a good person from Bill.
Brenden also feels a connection to this City and to its people. In his law school admissions essay he wrote that he wanted to bring his talents back to the shores of Lake Erie. He strives to live by his family’s motto to never forget where he came from and the people who helped him along the way. You can see Brenden’s passion in where he spends his free time volunteering. Brenden volunteers and works with Engage Cleveland, The United Way, his high school alma mater, Gilmour Academy, and the Alpha Tau Omega Leadership Fraternity.
Brenden will bring that passion, loyalty, and drive to every client and every case.
“I have seen firsthand what the law can do for a person and for a family. Lawyers have this great ability to come into a client’s life and to take on a client’s burden as their own. I strive to be the kind of lawyer who will to put those burdens on my shoulders and fight until I have nothing left.”—Brenden Kelley
