following are comments from some of our clients:
"I have used
Dr. Kelly's expert services in two cases and in both instances
his opinions have proven invaluable. Dr. Kelly has a strong,
credible presence in depositions and his command of his field
of toxicology is evident. In addition, Dr. Kelly is prompt in
reviewing records, learning the intricacies of the case, and
preparing an expert report. I have found that he fully understands
and appreciates the importance of legal deadlines. Dr. Kelly's
participation as an expert has proven to be a great asset in
getting cases resolved."
"I have been
a criminal defense attorney for over 25 years. Dr. Raymond Kelly
is probably the best forensic expert with whom I have ever worked.
In a recent
case involving charges of manslaughter and furnishing drugs against
a dentist, Dr. Kelly proved to be the "central intelligence" of
my forensic expert collegium.
services of a forensic psychologist, pathologist, ergonomics
and safety engineer, psychopharmacologist and other toxicologists.
Dr. Kelly reviewed all case information and forensic data. His
understanding of the totality of considerations was nothing short
of phenomenal. The case involved substantial destruction of toxicological
evidence and an evaluation both of its impact on the defense
and the accuracy of prosecution testimony through its own experts.
Dr. Kelly was
keenly aware throughout of the difference between solid toxicological
opinions and stretching forensic speculation to accommodate adversarial
interests. As a witness, Dr. Kelly was questioned not only by
myself and the prosecution, but also by the trial judge. He was
able competently to agree and disagree where the state of forensic
science and current studies necessarily required. Dr. Kelly supervised
and integrated input from other defense experts, assisting me
as trial counsel in harmonizing and assigning testimony and expertise
best suited to the qualifications of individual defense expert

opportunity to use Dr. Kelly as an expert witness in a rape trial.
The complaining witness had a .24 blood alcohol level when the
sexual assault exam was conducted at the hospital. Dr. Kelly
testified as an expert on blood alcohol levels and the effect
of alcohol on the body. Dr. Kelly was able to take complex subject
matter and present it to the jury in a clear and concise manner.
Dr. Kelly had a very professional presence on the witness stand.
I would highly recommend Dr. Kelly both as an expert witness
and for consultation."

its role in cardiac arrhythmia. His testimony was crucial and
effective.... His work on the case was largely responsible for
preventing my client from having to serve time for a crime he

the pleasure to retain and work with Dr. Raymond Kelly in a recent
personal injury case, tried to defense verdict in Las Vegas,
Nevada. Dr. Kelly testified on the issues of alcohol intoxication,
the effects of alcohol and the procedures utilized to establish
valid clinical and forensic blood alcohol results. I found Dr.
Kelly to be extremely knowledgeable and competent in all of these
areas. He was a personable witness, who explained things in simple
terms before a jury who obviously liked him. I highly recommend
Dr. Kelly as a consulting or testifying toxicologist."
