Introduction

The Kelley Consulting group provides well over 100 years of experience in the legal and medical fields. Our consultants have extensive experience in the legal review of appropriate medical management – related to both acute, as well as chronic, illnesses and injuries. Unique to our group is expertise in toxicology including areas such as opioids abuse, impairment from synthetic psychoactive agents, military chemical exposure, performance enhancement in sports and environmental toxins.

The success of any criminal action or civil litigation is based not only upon the accuracy of the evidence but also trust in those testifying. Therefore our consultants are chosen with two criteria in mind - recognized expertise and their ability to convey information in a manner which can be understood by those parties charged with judgment.
