Adv Sean Kelly commenced his career as an enthusiastic entrepreneur. He honed the skills of negotiation and perseverance as a young sales representative. Later, he saw an opportunity in the pharmacy industry and opened his own wholesale distribution firm, which he successfully owned and managed until the end of 2012.

In 2013, Adv Kelly completed the Debt Counselling course and registered as a Debt Counselor. With his legal experience, he was able to assist many consumers with complex debt problems and practiced as such, working closely with an attorney.

As debt counselling issues are legal issues, Adv Kelly gained experience in Motion Court matters, Mediation, and Settlements. Clients’ other matters were also referred to Adv Kelly and his attorney. Both worked closely together to find solutions to resolve issues.

Adv Kelly commenced practice as an Advocate in June 2017, having completed pupillage with the Gauteng Society of Advocates. He is an enthusiastic, pragmatic practitioner, who pays attention to detail and prides himself in providing world-class service to the attorneys who brief him and in the practice of law.
