I was raised in Alaska, graduating from Chugiak High School in 1985. After graduating from Hamilton College in 1989 and Columbia Law School in 1992, I returned to Alaska to serve as a law clerk for the Honorable James K. Singleton with the U.S. District Court for Alaska. For the past 20 years, I have been practicing law with my wife, Michaela (also raised in Alaska). We are co-owners of Kelley & Canterbury LLC, where our focus is on helping injured Alaskans with their personal injury claims. Clients appreciate the individualized attention from a family-owned practice, where Michaela and I can share our collective experience and sometimes disparate analysis, finding two heads better than one! Together we have handled a variety of liability cases, from automotive collisions and slip and falls, to more complex sexual assault, medical malpractice, and even food-borne pathogen cases.
We have two children who are fanatical about hockey and two dogs (Irish Setter siblings). We can appreciate the varied challenges and interests that our clients experience in their daily lives and we make sure they are treated fairly in resolving their claims.
