Whether you are seeking compensation for an accident or protecting the interests of your business, choosing legal representation is an important decision. You want a firm with the experience and resources to handle your case. You also want to feel that your legal team understands your goals and cares about the outcome.

At Kelly & King, P.C., we strive to provide value to clients through quality legal representation and superior service to our clients. We believe that our background as both plaintiff and defense counsel helps us anticipate what the other side will do and position our clients for the most favorable outcome.


Law partners Paul E. Kelly and David L. King each served nine years as Assistant State Attorneys in Cook County early in their careers, where they honed their legal research and writing skills and gained substantial courtroom experience. They then worked in private practice for 20 years and 15 years, respectively, with the Chicago civil litigation firm of Hoffman, Burke & Bozick before forming their own practice, the law office of Kelly & King, P.C., in January 2006.

Kelly & King serves individuals, families and businesses in DuPage County, Cook County and the Chicagoland area. Our legal team has expanded to include attorney Kellett McConville, who provides both litigation support and courtroom advocacy. Our attorneys have tried hundreds of cases as former prosecutors and as plaintiff and defense attorneys in civil litigation.

Our diverse law practice was originally geared toward defense counsel, and we still represent an Illinois-based Fortune 500 utility company and many corporations, construction companies and small businesses, providing plaintiff and defense counsel in commercial litigation and construction law.

We have also developed a reputation for results in plaintiff personal injury and wrongful death law, representing victims of car accidents, slip-and-falls, medical negligence and workplace injuries. We also help individuals and businesses stand up to insurance companies in coverage disputes.


Defense lawyers for insurance companies and corporations know which attorneys do and don’t go to trial. Kelly & King, P.C., commands respect in those circles because defense attorneys are familiar with our methods, our background and our record of verdicts and settlements in a diverse array of cases. This enables us to advocate effectively for clients in injury litigation, before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission and in business disputes in state and federal courts.

Unlike settlement mills that sell clients short in the name of efficiency, we do not rely on volume. We handle select injury cases and give them our full attention and resources. This enables us to get full value for accident victims and their families facing financial and personal hardships. We are diligent about pursuing all sources of compensation to cover long-term needs.
