A personal yet tough approach to civil litigation and professional malpractice

Don’t let my boyish grin fool you, I am seasoned litigator with an impressive range of experience. I started working for my mentor Bill Wuliger at the ripe old age of 17. Without me realizing, Bill was teaching me how to review evidence and prepare for trial before I had my high school diploma. Through college, Bill taught me how to slowly thread nuanced arguments and how to work opposing counsel. Bill was teaching me the intangibles that they don’t teach you in school.

When it was time to decide where I would begin my legal career, there was only one real option: to work for my mentor in the city that I love. In my law school admissions essay, I was asked to write about what inspired me to go to law school. I wrote about the two greatest men and litigators I have been so fortunate to have in my life: my father and Bill. They had shown me what the law can do for a person and for a family.

BRENDEN P. KELLEY | Wuliger & Wuliger, Cleveland Business Law firmGood lawyers have this amazing ability to come into a client’s life and to take on a client’s burdens as their own. Good lawyers give their voice in order to get justice for the voiceless. I strive to be like my father and Bill. I strive to be the kind of lawyer who will put those burdens on my shoulders and fight until I have nothing left. I too want to give my voice for the voiceless.

Armed with a law degree and license to practice law, I have spent the last three years using my passion, my loyalty, and my drive to help each and every one of my clients. I was fortunate enough to have a boss who let me swim in the deep end from day one. I was able to go to battle with him and try cases that few young attorneys would get the opportunity to even sit in on. I was so fortunate Bill believed and trusted in me.

Some highlights of my young career are: drafting contracts on multimillion dollar real estate transactions, drafting estate plans for families in excess of 15 million dollars, serving as corporate representative for multiple corporations and trusts in litigation, and drafting and successfully arguing motions in state and federal court.

While both my father and Bill have passed, I carry on in their honor. They ignited a flame within me many years ago and I have no intention of letting it burn out.
