 Returning to her Memphis roots, Kelsey Duckett joins Harris Shelton as an associate.  She previously worked as a law clerk for the firm.

 Kelsey’s interest in law was sparked after taking Constitutional Law as an elective in undergraduate school.

 “It was the cases and how the courts interpreted and shaped our Constitution with those cases that inspired me to pursue law,” Kelsey says.

 She further honed her legal skills working at AutoZone, Inc.. During her internship there, she drafted and reviewed contracts and vendor agreements and policed trademark registrations.  At an externship at Regional One Health, Kelsey analyzed research for medical malpractice claims. She also composed case and deposition summaries for medical malpractice cases, among other duties.  

 Kelsey is involved in Memphis Urban League Young Professionals; Association for Women Attorneys; National Bar Association - Ben F. Jones Chapter; Memphis Bar Association; Memphis Area Legal Services; Tennessee Bar Association;  and the Memphis Professional Development Program.
