Kelly Byrnes & Danker

With more than 50 years of collective experience and over a decade practicing together, Kelly Byrnes & Danker partners John E. Byrnes, Sean P. Kelly, and Maureen E. Danker all bring to the table an ability to handle the myriad complex issues, both legal and emotional, that go hand-in-hand with domestic relations law. But they also understand that family law is not one-size-fitsall. “The key differentiator of this firm is that even though we all have a different approach and style, our goal is common,” says Byrnes. “And that is to get our clients focused on results as opposed to issues that may have brought them to us in the first place.” Indeed, keeping clients focused on that elusive light at the end of the tunnel is paramount for the firm, who rely on a variety of finely honed legal skills to distill the best results. Their exceptional legal skills have earned them the recognition of their colleagues, with placement with both Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers, as well as repeatedly being named Tier 1 in family law in Washington, D.C., by U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms.” That’s not to mention their tireless service to the bar, with the partners and associates holding various positions of distinction with several legal groups. But such accolades and commendations are not what brings Byrnes and his colleagues to work every day; rather, it’s the chance to help people untangle the legalities of complex relationships—and move on. “We want our clients to realize the benefits of this process,” he says.
