Kelly Dunn Gelof is an attorney and the managing partner of the oldest and largest full service law firm in Sussex County, Tunnell & Raysor, P.A. Ms. Gelof is lead counsel for the Litigation department. This department handles all areas of litigation, civil and criminal. Ms. Gelof's practice is primarily personal injury law and other civil matters. She represents victims of negligent conduct. Her clients have received millions of dollars in compensation. She handles automobile accidents, nursing home negligence, wrongful death and slip-and-fall cases. Ms. Gelof earned her Bachelor of Science degree in communications from Syracuse University and her law degree from Widener University School of Law. She is admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar and the Delaware Bar. She represented physicians in Philadelphia and its suburbs with O'Brien & Ryan, LLP before joining Tunnell & Raysor in 1996. Has served on the Board of the Delaware Trial Lawyers Association and as a volunteer on Boards and within several non-profit organizations. She has lobbied in Washington DC and Dover for victims rights. Ms. Gelof is passionate about her work for all clients. She is their voice. She uses that voice to obtain fair compensation for her clients. She achieves that through out-of-court settlement, arbitration, mediation or trial. Ms. Gelof explains, "Helping people is why I became a lawyer. When I meet with clients, they are usually in pain due to the injuries they have suffered during an accident, and they are overwhelmed by their medical condition, medical bills, lost wages and phone calls from insurance companies. They need someone to help them. When they walk out the door of my office following our initial meeting, I strive to have them feel less stressed and anxious about their unfortunate situation. They now have me and my entire team to help them through the legal process." Ms. Gelof provides her clients a unique perspective of their cases due to her previous representation of defendants and now plaintiffs in personal injury cases. This perspective helps her clients resolve or litigate their cases successfully. Ms. Gelof and the team communicate with our clients so they make fully informed decisions every step through the process. Ms. Gelof meets with clients in all four locations: Georgetown, Rehoboth Beach, Lewes and Bethany Beach.
