John Q. Kelly, widely known for representing the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and
Natalee Holloway, was featured in a 2013 article in Greenwich Magazine
discussing his experiences as one of the most “sought-after wrongful
death attorneys in the land.”
At the beginning of his career, Kelly worked for the Queens District Attorney’s
Office where he prosecuted major murders, rapes, and drug cases. He later
decided to go into private practice and began defending the people he
used to prosecute. Now, Kelly is best known for his victories in the civil
trial that found O.J. Simpson liable for the 1997 deaths of Nicole Brown
Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman and for his role in the capture of
Joran van der Sloot.
A humble advocate, Kelly never forgets the weight of his cases and how
important it is to provide fearless and tenacious legal representation
to families in a time of crisis. “High profile, high stakes litigation
is basically a blood sport,” he says, “You either win or lose,
and losing’s not an option.”
