Nicholas Patrick Kelly is an attorney at Duncan Law Group. He has personally recovered millions of dollars on behalf of his clients and has centered his career on protecting people’s rights against some of the most powerful insurance companies in the world. He primarily focuses on personal injury law and his specific areas of practice include car accident claims, truck accident claims, premises liability cases, and wrongful death claims.
Nicholas began studying law at the University of Illinois, College of Law on a full-tuition merit-based scholarship, where he spent his free time helping others in need. During law school, Nicholas worked for the Prisoners’ Rights Research Project, providing legal insight to indigent prisoners. Additionally, he was involved with the Community Preservation Clinic where he battled banks and unscrupulous lenders in order to save his clients’ homes from foreclosure.
During his final year of law school, Nicholas worked as a clerk for a personal injury law firm. After 4 months of helping injured victims, he knew personal injury law was his passion. Nicholas joined our legal team at Duncan Law Group after graduation.
Over the course of his education and career, Nicholas honed a multifaceted client-centered approach in his fight against insurance companies, corporations, and institutions that prey on the vulnerability of the public. He treats every client’s case with care, attention, and compassion as if each client were a family member, understanding that, in most instances, his clients, many of whom face imminent destitution because of their injuries, are experiencing the most difficult times of their lives and are relying on him to protect their interests by achieving the best possible outcomes in their cases.
Nicholas Patrick Kelly is currently a member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, Illinois State Bar Association, Chicago Bar Association, and the American Bar Association. An avid adventurer, Nicholas loves exploring Chicago with his wife and two dogs, and enjoys hiking, biking, and camping.
