Kelsey Smith
Associate Attorney
Kelsey went to the University of Michigan where she earned Bachelor of Arts degrees in Political Science and in International Studies. Prior to law school, she worked at the International Association of Defense Counsel. She recently graduated magna cum laude from Loyola University Chicago School of Law. In law school, Kelsey served as a doctrinal Academic Tutor for first year Property and Criminal Law classes, as well as working as a law clerk for PLF.

As a PLF clerk, she worked on an array of legal matters, including business disputes, shareholder disputes, intellectual property matters, and legal malpractice. She tells us that she is thrilled to continue the same type of work as she joins the PLF team as an associate attorney.

In her free time, Kelsey loves to travel and has been to 20 different countries so far. While each has been wonderful, Greece and Peru are at the top of her travel list and she cannot wait until we all can travel again.
