Neely has an extensive background in complex civil litigation and administrative law, which she uses to evaluate and develop cases on behalf of her clients.

When with the US District Court for the District of Kansas, she analyzed briefs and pleadings and prepared proposed orders involving civil rights claims, habeas corpus and other issues.  She also served as the Court’s Public Outreach Specialist, directing preparation of a book on the Court’s history, working on naturalization issues, and coordinating a Court event featuring the Honorable Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Prior to joining the Court, she was in private practice for several years in the Kansas City area, working on complex cases involving State and Federal statutes and regulations on behalf of multi-million dollar companies, as well as individual clients.

Neely is a graduate of Nebraska Wesleyan University and earned her J.D. at the University of Virginia.  She is an avid listener of true crime podcasts, which makes all the driving she does for children’s activities a bit more bearable.
