Lawrence M. Kelly


"My passion sometimes gets the best of me, but if it benefits my client, that's a win."

Larry Kelly knows his community. He’s been a part of it since the day he was born. Raised by New Castle natives, Larry has dedicated his adult life to upholding the positive values he learned from his parents while growing up. He and his wife, Marisa, also a Lawrence County native and a nurse who trained at St. Francis hospital, have raised four girls in the area. He has been a son, coach, father, friend, neighbor, service provider and a practicing attorney for the more than 30 years at LGKG. Yes, Larry Kelly knows his community. But it is also safe to say his community knows him.

"I won't let anything bad happen to you."
