Kelly Hart & Hallman, LLP


Inspired by his vision to establish a law firm that would not only provide exceptional legal service, but also become an integral part of the community, Dee J. Kelly founded Kelly Hart & Hallman in 1979. Since its inception, Kelly Hart has grown into a formidable legal powerhouse with 150 attorneys across five offices, specializing in 20 distinct practice areas.

Today, the firm is led by an executive committee that includes Managing Partner Marianne Auld and partners Hugh Connor, David Cook, Cal Jackson, Dee Kelly, David Keltner, Chad Key, Todd Spake, and Bill Warren.

“Clients look to us to provide exceptional legal expertise for whatever legal issues and concerns affect their businesses,” says Marianne Auld, managing partner.

Although Kelly Hart represents clients’ interests across the country and globe, Texas is home.

“We distinguish ourselves by being true to our Texas roots and our remarkable clients; by understanding on a deep and personal level the culture in which our clients are doing business; and by hiring extraordinary talent who shares our commitment to providing excellent client service,” Auld says.

In 2024, 104 Kelly Hart lawyers were named Top Attorneys by 360West, showcasing their dedication and commitment to their clients and profession.
