Robert Kelley Named Among 2014 "People of the Year" by DBR

Robert Kelley, a founding partner at Kelley/Uustal, was named among the Daily Business Review's (DBR) "People of the Year" for 2014. This merit is a reflection of his commitment to providing top-tier trial advocacy for clients nationwide.

DBR featured Kelley after he took on a high-profile whistleblower case for a Texas nurse who claimed that her employer, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, was unprepared to handle Ebola patients.

This isn't the first time Robert Kelley found his way into the national spotlight; in 2009, he represented a woman on behalf of her sister, who required a lung transplant. After multiple appeals to a large tobacco company, the woman became too weak to receive treatment and died.

The case went to trial, earning a $300 million verdict. Even though the verdict was later reduced, the lawsuit was the largest of its kind when the case originally closed.

One of Kelley's lawsuits was also featured on 60 Minutes. According to the case, General Motors sacrificed consumer safety by failing to install fuel tank shields on its vehicles. GM's decision saved the company $2.20 per automobile, but placed passengers at risk of burning alive in car fires.
