Murchison & Cumming Attorney Kelsey Maxwell Named to Southern California Rising Stars List

May 30, 2019

Murchison & Cumming, LLP is pleased to announce that Associate Kelsey L. Maxwell has been selected to the 2019 Southern California Rising Stars list. This is an exclusive list, recognizing no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in Southern California.

Ms. Maxwell focuses her practice on the areas of general liability, and specialty tort including habitability and discrimination claims. Her desire to help people and advocate for those that need assistance has allowed her clients to expect first rate responsiveness and customer service. She goes above and beyond to be sure that matters can be resolved quickly and efficiently to best suit her client’s needs. Ms. Maxwell routinely seeks to resolve cases through dispositive motions and has found success with these motions both in the courtroom and as leverage to encourage early resolution. In a recent case, she had a products liability case dismissed right before trial on a motion on limine which was later upheld on appeal.

Ms. Maxwell is a graduate of The University of Arizona (B.A.) and Chapman University, Dale E. Fowler School of Law (J.D.). Ms. Maxwell’s father is also a defense attorney and observing him while growing up was a key factor to her becoming a lawyer. Having started undergraduate school at 17 and graduating in three years, she passed the California Bar Exam at only 23 years old and became a practicing attorney that same year.
