Kelsey Veitengruber is part of the firm’s litigation team with her focus on general civil litigation in both state and federal courts, including matters related to insurance coverage, construction and contract disputes, real estate and property matters, and mortgage foreclosures.  She counsels clients through all phases of conflict resolution, from pre-litigation through trial, if necessary.  Kelsey also regularly counsels individual and business clients on various legal matters, including risk mitigation, contract drafting and negotiation, and employment matters.

Kelsey was born in Dayton, Ohio, but spent the majority of her youth right here in Charlotte County, moving to Port Charlotte when she was ten. After graduating from Port Charlotte High School, Kelsey went on to receive her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of South Florida, graduating magna cum laude. Throughout undergrad, Kelsey worked as an Office Manager for a locally owned business and stayed with the company until she began law school. Kelsey says working with this company for several years gave her “a unique perspective on the issues that companies face and allows me to provide better legal advice.”

Kelsey attended the University of Florida Levin College Of Law where she graduated in the top 10% of her class with magna cum laude honors and received two book awards. She is a proud Gator! After receiving her Juris Doctorate, she began her career in law at the Tampa office of a nationally ranked law firm with 300+ lawyers, where she focused her practice on insurance coverage defense.

Kelsey is thrilled to practice law in her hometown and to serve her community.
