Kelsey Norman is from South Alabama. Kelsey has always had a passion for the law, and she has wanted to be a lawyer since she was a young girl. Kelsey attended the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL, where she graduated Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Sociology. While pursuing her degree at the University of Alabama, Kelsey spent a year working as a secretary in the Tuscaloosa County Public Defenders Office.
After graduating from the University of Alabama, she decided to pursue her law degree at Stetson University College of Law. While at Stetson, Kelsey worked with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Florida on creating resources for juveniles. She also spent several semesters participating in the Veterans Advocacy Clinic, where she helped low-income veterans obtain their disability compensation benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. During her time in the Veterans Advocacy Clinic, Kelsey worked on disability claim appeals before the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs regional offices, the Board of Veterans Appeals, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
Kelsey’s is a proud Veteran’s spouse, and her interest in Veterans Law stems from her experience navigating the Veterans disability claims process with her husband. She learned firsthand how intricate and complicated the process is for Veterans, especially without legal assistance. Kelsey knows firsthand how life-changing it can be for someone to receive disability benefits, so she has dedicated herself to compassionately helping Veterans and other claimants seeking benefits from the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs.
When not in class or working as a law clerk, Kelsey enjoys being outdoors with her family and pets, traveling, and crafting.
