Alissa Kelso believes that anything worth doing is worth doing well. So, like most bright, talented and ambitious associates, she works diligently at sharpening her already considerable skills by writing briefs, researching and developing strategies, and generally providing top-notch legal support to her colleagues and clients across a variety of practice areas that includes products liability, commercial transactions and white-collar litigation.

But unlike most other bright, talented and ambitious associates, Alissa possesses an interesting secret weapon. She’s a trained military interrogator. After spending five years with the US Army Reserves learning and mastering effective debriefing and interrogation techniques, she knows how to collect information in a friendly but definitely effective manner. Needless to say, it’s a skill that comes in handy in her profession.

Since she’s an avid sports fan, Alissa loves living in Chicago because, like her native city of Detroit, it is well supplied with major professional teams. When she’s not cheering in the stands, she’s busy enjoying the theatre, museum and dining scene with her husband and young daughter.
