Rated By Super Lawyers | Rising Stars | Kelly Stafford |


As a family law attorney, Kelly prides herself on providing honest legal guidance coupled with compassionate support for her clients. She believes her role as an attorney is to help guide a client through a difficult transitional time and see them into the next phase of their lives.

Kelly joined Meridian Family Law after practicing as an Assistant District Attorney at the Bronx District Attorney's Office in the Child Abuse & Sex Crimes Bureau of the Special Victims Division. As an ADA working with children and families, Kelly utilized a trauma-informed approach to her work, prioritizing the well-being of the victim and their families in difficult and emotional circumstances. As an associate with Integrative Family Law, Kelly brings that client-centered approach to the forefront of her practice.

A graduate of Boston University School of Law, Kelly sought out litigation experiences whenever possible. Before her time as an ADA in the Bronx, she also interned at the Suffolk County District Attorney's office in Boston where she spent her time arguing in court, handling motions, and gaining trial experience, and with the United States Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts.

Kelly prides herself in her advocacy skills and attention to detail. Her "support has been a bright spot in what was otherwise a very difficult time."

Kelly resides in Seattle with her husband and her dog. In her spare time, you can find her baking with her trusty KitchenAid mixer, or cheering on her beloved Michigan Wolverines.
