Kelly Donley grew up on a farm near Clay Center, Kansas. Kelly’s family maintained a dairy where he learned the principles of hard work and attention to detail from an early age. These traits and communication are essential elements used to develop strong attorney-client relationships.

Kelly is an empty-nester, as all three of his children attended and graduated from Kansas State University. As a proud KU alumnus, Kelly is learning to cope with this situation. On the other hand, Kelly’s wife is quite happy that they attended her alma mater. Even though he may be outnumbered by Wildcats, Kelly will continue to support his Jayhawks.

In his spare time, Kelly enjoys traveling and distance running. He qualified for the Boston Marathon and completed it in May 2016.

It’s not the will to win that matters…everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.
