Yet another installment of our ever-popular feature: Member Spotlight. Please meet RCCP's very own Ms. Kellie Lego

Ms. Kellie Lego

Kellie is an attorney with a primary focus in immigration law. Her firm (MVP Law Group) also offers other services in the areas of estate planning and business formation. With immigration, she assists individuals and corporations – large and small, in obtaining temporary work visas/permits, permanent resident status (Green Cards through employment or through family) and naturalization. They also assist individuals eligible for the new Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

 

She assists and advises individuals/corporations across the U. S. and the world. She helps corporations prepare the requisite paperwork and petitions to bring qualified foreign workers into the United States. With the significant backlog in almost all areas of immigration, she is anxiously awaiting Immigration Reform!

 

Her Estate Planning and Business Formation services are able to assist Marylanders with will drafting, power of attorney preparation, establishing advance directives and the creation of prenuptial/post-nuptial agreements. Her law firm provides a wide range of business and legal services, including Business Formation; Contract Review; Business Agreements & Letters; and Registered Agent Service.

Kellie’s proudest career moment came on January 6, 2011, after being an employee of the company since 2005 in the roles of receptionist, law clerk, and associate, the owner of the firm approached her and asked if she was ready to take over the ship. Without hesitation, she drew up the agreement and the rest is history.

 

In 2013 AND 2014, Kellie was named to the Maryland Rising Stars list in the field of Immigration. The Rising Stars list is compiled by Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business that rates outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas. 

 

Kellie grew up in Altoona, PA, where the majority of her immediate family still live. Her mother, the Principal of Linton Springs Elementary in Carroll County lives here in Maryland. Her father, who worked for the Federal Government for over 15 years is now working for her law firm serving the position of Legal Assistant/Communications Manager. “My family is my support and without them, I would not be where I am or who I am today.” During her 2nd year of law school, she rescued her “son” -- her black and white Cocker Spaniel. “He brightens my day, each and every day.” 

Volunteering is her favorite hobby. She volunteers at least two-three times a month on the weekends to engage in pro bono opportunities and/or community service related activities: (Catholic Charities/Hogar Immigrant Service/ Casa de Maryland/Homeless Persons Representation Project/Wills for Heroes, and more).

 

Kellie loves to dance, shop, travel, read, organize and sleep. In 2014, Kellie made a resolution that each weekend she is going to work on one home improvement project — whether it be tiling the laundry room floor, painting the trim in the RAVENS WOMAN’S cave, installing a new dishwasher…so far so good…yet its only March!
