Attorney M. Kelley Solomon Johnson
Kelley joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2020 and views her position as a personal injury attorney as an ideal way to advocate for members of our community who can’t do it for themselves. She focuses her efforts on fighting for those who have been the victims of nursing home abuse and neglect. She sees her responsibility as twofold – helping her elderly clients fight for the justice they deserve, as well as trying to ensure that any abuse they suffered doesn’t happen to others.
As a child, Kelley knew she wanted to be a lawyer because she saw it as a way to help the underdog – something she and her family literally did with their adoption of rescue and shelter dogs as part of their family. Kelley is passionate about helping those who need it the most and sees it as her honor and responsibility.
Born and raised in Clayton, Kelley has kept her focus and talents in North Carolina. After graduating from North Carolina State University, where she obtained a B.S. in Business Administration, she attended Campbell University School of Law. As a co-coordinator of the Wills/Advanced Directives portion of the law school’s Pro Bono Project, Kelley explored her passion for helping those who need it most and gained insight into the needs of the vulnerable elderly population. After graduating from law school, Kelley practiced law at a local firm but felt that she could contribute more. No longer able to ignore the desire to follow her dream of making an important difference in people’s lives, Kelley joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin to fulfill that dream.
