Welcome to the website for Kelly A. Damm, Attorney at Law.

I am a successful trial attorney with substantial experience in criminal, family, matrimonial, and surrogate issues. My philosophy is that everyone deserves to have the best legal representation possible … and that is what I provide for each of my clients.

As a sole practitioner in Ithaca over the last 14 years, I have long been committed to being a dedicated advocate for any member of our community – including those who cannot afford an attorney, through the assigned counsel program and my pro bono work. I handle cases from initial appearance through hearings, preliminary exams, non-jury trials, and jury trials. Over the years I have taken custody, visitation and family offense matters to trial, divorce matters to trial, and support matters to hearing.  I have represented clients in on-jury trials (where the decision is made by the judge),as well as jury trials to a verdict (an increasing rarity in these days of settled cases).

I look forward to working with you to reach a successful resolution of your legal issue.
