KelseyTill Thompson


"My favorite aspects of the legal profession are the intellectual challenge of it and the fact that it is never static—it's always changing."



A former NYS Supreme Court Appellate Division attorney, Kelsey primarily concentrates her practice on litigated tort defense, insurance coverage disputes, and appellate advocacy. She represents both individuals and businesses in a wide range of tort defense matters and litigates insurance coverage disputes in declaratory-judgment actions throughout the state.
