Hello there, my name is Kelley Lester. Thank you for taking the time to read my biography. Helping others is why I became a lawyer. Even while in high school, I worked at a law firm, part-time during the school year and full-time every summer. I then attended Florida State University where I earned my college degrees in Psychology and Social work and later, a master’s degree in Social Work. My reasoning for those degrees is my desire to help and ultimately the practice of law is working with people in a wide array of settings.
While working with adults and children, in both private and institutional settings such as the Department of Children and Families, I was absolutely sure that I had to be a lawyer. I saw lawyers give their clients a voice and make a difference. It also afforded me the opportunity to see firsthand, unfortunately that some lawyers do not fight for their clients. I excelled in law school, working full time at a personal injury firm while maintaining top class ranking and achieving awards for my argument and writing skills. My path from a young age was intentional at every step to put me in the best position through today to be the best advocate for innocent people who have been wronged.
I worked many years as a lawyer on behalf of insurance companies and large corporations. Day in and day out defending their interests has placed me in the position to effectively and efficiently represent injury victims. The experience and insight that I have gained over those years has proven invaluable to provide me with the tools and strategies on the opposite side of the table, to maximize the recovery available for you. My accomplishments in the legal field have earned me “AV Preeminent” rating by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating available for ethical and professional excellence.
It would be my honor and privilege to give you or your loved one a voice. I am passionate to fight for you and what was taken away from you and your family! Please do not hesitate to call me at (407) 203-6647 or email me at Kelley.Lester@NewlinLaw.com.
