Kelley and attorney David J. Solfanelli.
Mr. Kelley is an experienced business lawyer with an outstanding commitment to providing pro bono legal work and public service. Mr. Solfanelli is an exceptionally talented lawyer, who handles litigation, criminal cases, business matters, and real estate. For many years Dave has served the public as a Hearing Committee Member for the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

Polishan Solfanelli, LLC is a NEPA litigation law firm created to focus on improvement of the law, access to the legal system, administration of justice, and quality of service rendered by the legal profession. In addition to handling jury trials and other litigation, the firm's lawyers offer ADR services as mediators and arbitrators.
Polishan Solfanelli, LLC is founded on the principle that lawyers should cultivate knowledge of the law beyond its use for clients, employ that knowledge in reform of the law, and work to strengthen legal education. A core part of the firm's mission is to further the public's understanding of, and confidence in, the rule of law and the justice system. This is because legal institutions in a constitutional democracy depend on popular participation and support to maintain helpful authority that serves the people.
To fulfill these goals, lawyers must be mindful of deficiencies in the administration of justice and of the fact that many who need legal help cannot get it. Therefore, lawyers should devote professional time and resources and use civic influence to offer everyone equal access to our system of justice. Lawyers should help pursue these goals and regulate their profession in the public interest.
