THE BEST LAWYER IN DUI CASES
Posted by John, a DUI client
Mr. Kellis represented me in a DUI case that occurred in May of 2012. I chose Mr. Kellis for couple of reasons. First, he handles only DUI cases so I knew that he was an expert in the field. Second, after talking with several lawyers, one of the lawyers actually recommended talking with Mr. Kellis. The lawyer’s response was that Mr. Kellis will give you an honest answer. From that point, I had a good feeling about Mr. Kellis. I met with Mr. Kellis and he reviewed my case. A quick rundown on my case: I was involved in a motorcycle and automobile accident with BAC level of 0.219% (tier 3). If you know a little about DUI cases, you know this is one of the worst cases.
Right from the start, he was able to catch something that other lawyer didn’t see in the criminal complaint. And he was the only lawyer that said he can get me into ARD program. Every other lawyers’ response was that it was not possible because of the accident and victim or gave me the “we can try but…” answer. I decided to have Mr. Kellis represent me and from beginning to the end, he put me at ease. He was very response and kept me in the loop at all times. He definitely earned my trust quickly. Again, my case was one of the extreme ones (accident + victim + tier 3 BAC level) but Mr. Kellis persistently fought and defended my case. The ARD was initially rejected but that did not stop him from continuing to fight for ARD approval. He wrote an appeal letter and kept fighting for ARD approval. In the end, I got accepted into ARD program.
I would like to thank Mr. Kellis for his expertise, persistency, and trustworthiness. Mr. Kellis will stand by you until the end and he will try everything possible to get the result you want. He is truly the best of the best in DUI cases. Thanks again, Mr. Kellis!
Thank you, Mr. Kellis

Steve Kellis is hard working, tenacious, and he gets results. He only does DUI cases, and he’s a real professional in this specialized area. In my recent case, entry into the ARD Program (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition Program) was denied twice, despite a clean driving record. Mr. Kellis kept pounding away, moving steadily up the chain of command in the District Attorney’s office, until he won the hard-fought battle and saved me a host of problems. Things looked bleak for a while, but Mr. Kellis saved the day and I’m currently enrolled in the ARD Program. I recommend him strongly for your consideration.

Mr. Kellis is a very knowledeable lawyer with a wealth of experience. At my request, he met with me to go over the most common outcomes, as well as the extremes of outcome. When I had questions, or felt mis/underinformed, I simply placed a phone call and he was usually responsive within 24-48 hours. He did his best to put my mind at ease in a very stressful situation. He was able to get my charges reduced, which per him, in my circumstances, is a rare occurence. I was very satisfied with the outcome.

Excellent D.U.I. Attorney
Posted by Drew, a DUI client
I decided to hire Attorney Steven Kellis for a D.U.I. charge and after our initial phone conference, I felt confident that I had hired the best attorney for my situation. After talking in depth about my case he informed me of what our next steps were going to be and helped put my mind at ease. At the preliminary hearing he was able to have all of my charges dismissed before we had to go to the actual criminal hearing. Furthermore, he has had my charges expunged from my record so that I will not have to deal with any future ramifications. If you are considering an attorney for D.U.I. charges then I highly recommend hiring Mr. Kellis.

I went to Mr. Kellis hoping for a professional and understanding attorney. That is exactly what I received. Mr. Kellis conducted himself as a professional at all times. He never made false promises and worked as hard as he could for me to give me the best outcome possible. I also felt Mr. Kellis knew the way to defend me because of his many years as a DA. I would recommend him to anyone. I would also hire him again if needed in the future. If you have a Dui or possession case, you should definitely consider Steven Kellis.

A very Competent Lawyer!
Posted by Mr. Gardner, a DUI client
I had the pleasure of having Steven represent me last year. My case was in the court system for at least year. Steven was there with me at each hearing, successfully representing me. He NEVER missed a date. I was very much impressed at the actual trial. Steven represented me with true professionalism and was completely aware of both the laws of the state and my rights. He punched numerous holes in the statements of the officers testifying against me as well as the prosecutor. He even found a technicality, that almost had the entire case thrown out! Ultimately, with Steven’s proper representation, we actually WON the case. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel. I truly believe that you could not find a more capable and competent lawyer.

Bogus Chester County DUI
Posted by Jeffrey, a DUI client
Steve was very responsive. Clearly he was well informed and familiar with the process, the officers and the judges. He articulately conveyed the risks and rewards of one approach versus another. He communicated and managed our expectations. I hope to never go through that harangue again. However, if I do I would certainly utilize Steve’s services again.
Someone who will work for you
Posted by George, a DUI client
As my daughter’s representative on a charge of DUI, I found Steve to very diligent throughout the judicial process. Furthermore,through his personal intervention, all of the secondary charges were dropped at the first hearing and her driving privileges extended. Steve’s personality is one of patience and respect. We are very grateful to Steve for his work to get the DUI criminal charge expunged. Steve understood how anxious we were to see this brought to conclusion and expedited the final package to us.

Steven Kellis DUI case
Posted by Todd, a DUI client
Throughout my whole case Steven did a superb job of keeping me informed of what was going on, as well as doing an excellent job with my case overall. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer to represent me. Steven got the exact result out of the case that I was hoping for. My charges were reduced, which saved me jail time and a lot of money, he also made it a point to insure that all of my needs were met.
Good lawyer to have on your side.
Posted by Steve, a DUI client
Without Mr.Kellis on our side, the DUI my son received could have been disastrous. Mr. Kellis was able to keep him out of jail and received minimum restitution. I would highly recommend Mr. Kellis if you are in need of a lawyer.
Posted by Charlie, a DUI client
Without reservations do I recommend Steven Kellis. I was facing the real possibility of 60- 90 days jail time and an extended period without a drivers license due to two DUI charges within three weeks. Clearly experienced in trying DUI cases in Philadelphia Steve demonstrated tenacity and skill as well as a command of the law
He was successful in getting one of the cases dropped and the other reduced to the mandatory minimum of three months probation-no jail or loss of license. I am grateful for finding Steve and the good fortune that has been afforded me which I will not squander.
Steven Kellis: “Justice Served”
Posted by Andrew, a DUI client
Steven Kellis was attentitive to my case from the day that I hired him to represent me. His knowledge of the laws, along with his willingness to fight on my behalf, led to a not-guilty verdict in my 7 month long DUI case. I would highly reccommend Steven Kellis to anyone who gets a DUI charge!
1st, 2nd, 3rd DUI/DWI? Yes, you DO need an experienced DUI Attorney!
Posted by Bob, a DUI client
In February of 2009, I was arrested in Philadelphia and charged with DUI. Unfortunately, it was not the first time this had happened. Facing significant jail time and the subsequent loss of my job, career, home and personal freedom, I reached out to Mr. Kellis after reading about his experience online. Steven agreed to take my case and thus began our journey. In the months that followed, an additional charge of felony fleeing was added by the DA’s office further complicating my case and seriously jeopardizing any kind of favorable outcome. Obviously, I was in an arduous position with little hope. In the end, it came down to Steven’s acute knowledge of of the law, his experience on both sides of the bench, his excellent negotiation skills and his ability to think quickly and act precisely when presented with opportunities in court. Thanks to Steven’s exemplary representation, the felony fleeing charge was ultimately dropped and a plea was negotiated resulting in minimal disruption to my personal life. I chose to work with the right attorney whose experience proved to be far more valuable than I could have imagined. Without Steven’s help, I’d most likely be sitting in jail right now – a sobering fact which I am reminded of every day. If you are in any kind of trouble with DUI/DWI, you need an experienced attorney to represent you in court. Give Mr. Kellis a call – you’ll be glad you did.
