[GRAPHIC: Super Lawyers, James Michael Kelley rated by Super Lawyers. Attorney James Michael Kelley, III explains how his background directed his career to the types of cases he handles today.]

James Kelley: The primary area that I practice in is medical malpractice. And within that I kind of subspecialize in the area of birth injury and birth trauma, whether it be a maternal injury or an injury to the child. My entire background is in trial work. First on the criminal side. That gave me the ability early in my career to stand up, try relevant cases to a jury. Jury trials are about story telling, and they're about being persuasive. That gave me a leg up, I feel like, on the competition as far as that experience early on in my career.

Thereafter, I went on to the defense side. As the defense attorney, I was not only inundated in the medicine, but I learned the inner workings of the insurance industry, how they defend these cases. I think bringing that combination of experience to the plaintiff's side benefits my clients in the courtroom. The most important ingredient in being successful in this business is a sense of competitiveness and compassion for your clients.

People come to you with the most serious problems they face in their lives, and they're looking to you for a clear answer and a solution to that problem. Being able to provide them that answer and guide them through the legal process is probably the most rewarding part.
