About Us


Our firm, Kelly | Dorsey, P.C. was founded in 2011 by Attorneys Gerald W. Kelly and Gregory A. Dorsey. For 13 years, Messrs. Kelly and Dorsey proceeded on different paths in the private practice of law. Mr. Kelly, a former IRS Revenue Officer and Offer in Compromise Examiner, focused on servicing individuals and businesses with IRS audits, collection matters, and criminal investigations. Mr. Dorsey, a former software developer and manager at a Fortune 500 company and numerous leading-edge technology firms, focused on servicing entrepreneurs and businesses in transactional and commercial litigation matters.

When managing their own law firms, Messrs. Kelly and Dorsey recognized a synergy between their respective practices. In 2009, they capitalized on this synergy when their professional paths merged as partners in a premier Baltimore-based law firm where they continued to grow their respective practices while servicing some of the largest companies and individuals in the media, fitness, health care, technology, environmental, and commercial development industries. Having known each other since the early days of law school at the University of Baltimore in 1992, Messrs. Kelly and Dorsey decided to combine their gifts of advocacy and client development outside of the restrictions inherent in larger firms by establishing their own firm.

The firm set out to practice law the way Messrs. Kelly and Dorsey have always practiced law – with an unbridled passion to deliver focused legal solutions to the issue at hand while furthering the clients’ overall business and life objectives. Regardless of the size of the adversary or amount in controversy, the clients of Kelly | Dorsey quickly discover the passion and prowess of its founders are enmeshed in each client engagement.
