Kelly A. Scott believes the two keys to handling matters most effectively for clients are transparency and communication. Kelly practices as part of the Family Law group and represents clients in all areas of matrimonial and family law, including prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, dissolution, custody and visitation petitions and post judgment matters. She takes a reasoned approach to understanding and developing a client's goals from the outset, and then works to implement those goals from start to finish. Kelly has extensive experience representing clients with high-net worth and complicated assets, both in the preparation of prenuptial/postnuptial agreements and in dissolution matters. She regularly interfaces with business valuation, accounting and other financial experts. When child custody is at issue, Kelly is well versed in preparing a case effectively and efficiently to achieve the best possible outcome. Kelly is also a certified Guardian ad litem.
Prior to joining Pullman & Comley, LLC, Kelly practiced at a boutique matrimonial and family law firm in Westport, CT, where she focused on high-net worth and high-conflict custody and financial matters. She previously worked at the Regional Family Trial Docket, for the Honorable Lynda B. Munro and the Honorable Gerard I. Adelman.
Kelly is an active member of the legal community and currently serves as treasurer of the Family Law Section of the Connecticut Bar Association. She is a Special Master for family matters in the Fairfield Judicial District. She has been recognized for her accomplishments by Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers in the area of family law.
