Brouse McDowell Associate Gabrielle T. Kelly Certified as Insurance Coverage Law Specialist


Brouse McDowell, a leading regional legal professional association, is proud to announce that Gabrielle T. Kelly has been certified as a specialist in Insurance Coverage Law.

Fewer than 20 Ohio lawyers have been certified as specialists in insurance coverage law and five are at Brouse, making up the largest contingent of such specialists of any firm in the state. Brouse attorneys Keven Drummond Eiber, Amanda M. Leffler, Caroline L. Marks, and Paul A. Rose were certified in February 2014.

Attorneys who devote a large part of their practice to a particular area may choose to earn specialty certification. To obtain this certification attorneys must, in addition to other requirements, demonstrate substantial and continuing involvement in their practice to that particular field of law; submit five references from other lawyers attesting to their competency in the specialty area; earn 36 hours of intermediate or advanced continuing legal education credits in the specialty area during the past three years, and pass a written examination in the specialty area. Those who have earned a specialty certification must be re-certified at least every four to seven years and must report annually to the certifying agency.
