MGM Members Profile: Cara Kelly


Who are you and what do you do?

I am an attorney practicing commercial litigation in Austin, Texas.  I recently moved from New York where I worked at a national law firm for several years. I assist clients with various breach of contract disputes, bankruptcy-related litigation, and real estate issues.  In addition, I have expertise in the area of CMBS and CLO-related litigation.

What motivated you to join MGM?

Women are rarely well represented at the top positions in law firms. I wanted to join MGM to learn from other female leaders and offer my own expertise in assisting others.

What would surprise us to learn about you?

In addition to loving my career, my happiest days are usually spent in my garden.

How can we support you?

I’m looking to network with women for career advice, as well as expand my client base and professional contacts.

What do you most want people to know about you?

I am trustworthy, responsible, helpful, easy to work with, dedicated, flexible but determined and a go getter.
