Kelly Morgan is a high achiever and lifelong learner with natural ability and a genuine desire to bring people together.
Having dedicated years to studying the law, Kelly has notable legal qualifications, however more impressively her knowledge and experience is firmly wrapped around a country heart dedicated to helping and representing hard working farming and rural, often multi-generational family groups.
Kelly advocates complete legal solutions for her clients. She has a Bachelor of Laws (Honours), a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, Master of Family Law and she is a Practitioner in the High Court of Australia. She is also an elected member of the Golden Key Society – a global invitation-only honor society that recognises academic performance of the world’s top 15% university students.
Kelly’s thorough and inclusive approach integrates her considerable knowledge with solid experience in providing commercial advice – wills and estates, family law, conveyancing (farming, business and residential), documentation for trusts, company documents, buy/sell agreements, workplace safety procedures and litigation – providing rural families with well-considered, integrated outcomes that reduce the need for clients to engage multiple legal advisors.
Kelly works with individuals, families and business owners and while she offers legal advice and expertise in all areas of law and across various jurisdictions, she has a specialised interest in farming businesses, particularly in the area of succession planning.
Her depth and breadth of knowledge of farming operations, coupled with years of rural legal practice means she is well placed to offer advice that bridges business and personal affairs and the inevitable business exit and transition to retirement.
Practising in rural legal firms since 2005, Kelly founded Kelly Kelly Legal in 2014 with her focus squarely on delivering quality legal advice and representing her clients’ best interests.
Known for her approachability and grace, Kelly understands that seeking legal advice can be confronting and strives to put her clients at ease translating complex legal issues into plain English, explaining often complex legal processes and outlining fees openly (and upfront) ensuring expectations are clear.
Personally. . . .
Kelly’s country heritage began in Yongala in South Australia’s mid-north. Growing up on the family farm she credits her parents as her strongest influence, instilling the values of hard work, country hospitality and community support. Her home-grown appreciation of the sacrifices that farming families make to build a brighter future for the next generation is ingrained.
While Kelly undertook her senior schooling and tertiary studies in the city, she returned to the country to help her Mum when her father died. It was locally in Jamestown where she met her husband, and the rest is history.
Actively involved in her local community, Kelly was President of the founding committee which established an annual ball as a social event that aimed to prevent suicide among local farmers. The ball is now in its tenth year and has raised over $100,000 for the local community. Kelly carries on the tradition of country hospitality as she enjoys entertaining and bringing family and friends together, volunteering legal assistance to community groups and coaching netball and supporting the local sporting teams.
