Kevin, Partner/Managing Attorney
Kevin Jolly, “KJ” is a fighting Bruin. After graduating from Law School Kevin spent 27 years working for State Farm as a trial lawyer. From day one, he knew he wanted to try cases, and that is what he has done. KJ has tried over 140 civil jury trials to verdict. He has earned a reputation as a fierce advocate, often referred to as “a bulldog who knows his way around the courtroom.” He has been recognized for his vast trial experience, and holds the title of Diplomate within the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA)—the highest level attainable. Fewer than 300 attorneys in the entire Country hold this ABOTA distinction. KJ is one of them because he has the unique ability, through years of experience, to communicate with 12 people in a jury box, to explain the most complicated issues in an accident reconstruction in a way that makes perfect common sense. KJ fights for what he believes in—whether it is as a part of a larger team to expose unethical behavior that amounts to criminal conduct, or representing a family who lost a loved one in a tragic accident.
He and his partner, Leah Berry worked together investigating Fraud Claims for State Farm, and have collaborated on numerous complex cases, including traumatic brain injuries. Together they have successfully tried several long cause jury trials to verdict together before deciding to start their own trial firm.
KJ and Leah formed their own firm with the mission to work on every case together: from meeting with you, developing a litigation plan, retaining experts, and executing a trial strategy with you. Jolly Berry law is unique in that two very experienced lawyers, with different styles and approaches, develop every case together. All cases– the minor injury accident someone recovers from, and the catastrophic forever life changing event—receive KJ and Leah’s personal attention and joint approach from beginning to end. When you are in a lawsuit, you need someone who will hear your side of the story, and tell it. KJ believes in the trial by jury system, and that jurors usually get it right. Together, KJ and Leah tell each of their clients’ stories.
“We were in a bad situation and things seemed as if there was no hope. If you’ve ever had that feeling of hopelessness you know what I’m taking about. We spoke to Leah about our case while she took copious notes and asked us a lot of questions – uncomfortable ones. All the while she kept her professional composure and gave us the honest to God truth…..truth about our options and how things were going to go down depending on what happens. It was a tough day. As we progressed into the process we were introduced to Kevin who supported Leah’s strategy and provided more insight. Together they showed compassion and empathy for our situation. Right from the get go we knew Leah and Kevin’s professionalism and extensive knowledge in trial was going to benefit us. They knew people, best strategy and possible outlook. Things were looking much better. We decided our best option was to go to trial and it was a good decision. Watching Leah and Kevin in action picking out the jury, lining up the witness stand and re-strategizing after objections was an amazing experience. We won 12-0 in our favor. If you are ever in a situation that you need an attorney you need to call Leah and Kevin – you won’t regret it. “
“We have had the pleasure of working with Leah Berry with the Jolly Berry Law Firm this year. She has a thorough knowledge of the law and a deep understanding of our legal system. Above all, Leah’s exceptional communication skills are what set her apart from other attorneys we have known. She is very proactive and kept us informed every step of the way through our legal proceeding. Best of all, she won our case!
Leah has an amazing talent and personality for bringing calm to the most stressful situations. We highly recommend Leah Berry and her law firm if you are looking for the highest level of professional legal care.“
“Leah Berry and Kevin Jolly are the ultimate advocates. Their experience, their attention to detail, their research, and their preparedness are second to none. They are not afraid to try cases and can connect with a jury to produce favorable results. More importantly, they care about their clients and their cause. They bring a passion to their litigation and advocacy skills that directly translate to favorable settlements and verdicts.“
“We wanted to thank you for representing us in the lawsuit. Our case was settled out of court because of your time, dedication, and effort. We can now sleep and have piece of mind. You and your wife are always in my prayers to continue your good work.”
