Geri C. Kelley, an associate attorney at Robert J. DeBry & Associates, has dedicated her life to helping others and has represented over 700 clients since working at the firm. She is highly motivated and dedicated to caring for her clients who need help because of a personal injury or automobile accident.
Before Geri decided to pursue a law degree at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, she received a B.A. in English with a secondary teaching certificate, along with her nursing degree from Weber State University.
After she received her undergraduate degree, she spent the next five years working as a nurse and 10 years after that teaching English and the Humanities to high school students in Davis County, Utah.
Geri enjoys getting involved in local politics. During her undergraduate, she served as assistant to the president for the student body government. After she received her degree, she worked for Senator Jake Garn, and later she decided to run for a local house seat in Salt Lake County, Utah.
Since Geri began to work for the firm over 14 years ago, she has represented and helped people with serious injuries receive a fair settlement. For example, she helped a family of three daughters receive closure and compensation for the medical bills and other future expenses after their father was killed in a motorcycle accident by an improperly fastened trailer, which came loose and slammed head-on into his motorcycle.
Geri still has the same passion and hard-working attitude that has helped her settle cases like these. She continues to fight for people who need fair compensation from insurance companies that are treating them unfairly.
A few years ago, Geri represented a young boy who was not able to communicate or fully function by himself because he was mentally disabled and as a result, needed constant supervision and assistance. The boy’s nighttime care-giver fell asleep during her night shift, and while she was asleep the boy’s roommate attacked him, leaving him seriously injured. Geri was able to reach a settlement for this young boy that allowed the parents to pay his current and future hospital bills.
When Geri is not hard at work representing people who have had an accident, she is either cooking or trying new foods. Geri is a major foodie and excellent cook. She has traveled all over Europe and has maintained a very wide view of the world from her many travels.
