Kelly Young Rizzo

Kelly is passionate about the practice of family law and commits herself to zealously advocating for each and every client she represents. She balances her attention to detail with a constant awareness of minimizing client costs. Clients have relied on her to represent their interests in a variety of lawsuits, including divorces, custody disputes, and modifications of existing court orders.

Kelly believes client input is key in effecting a resolution to a family law dispute. Clients can expect to be involved in every stage of the process, and no substantive decisions will be made without the client fully understanding each step.

A native Houstonian, Kelly has a deep affection for this city and remains involved with her beloved alma mater, the University of Houston. She volunteers her time mentoring at-risk youth and working in animal rescue.
