Kelly Sheridan

Admitted in Washington

Kelly Sheridan is a partner at Corr Cronin. He believes lawyers obtain the best possible outcome for their clients—whether through settlement, court order, or trial—by showing the opposing party they are willing and able to take cases to trial, and preparing each and every case accordingly from day one.

This guiding principle has earned Kelly recognition and respect in the Seattle legal community and from clients locally, regionally, and nationally—including companies and individuals that have been denied coverage by their insurance company, businesses that are in bet-the-company disputes with a competitor, and entities that are wrongfully accused of causing catastrophic personal injuries.

In addition to insurance coverage litigation, Kelly has significant experience defending product liability, professional negligence, and general commercial matters. He has also developed expertise in Washington’s open government laws, and regularly represents businesses in litigation against public agencies under the Washington Public Records Act, RCW 42.56 et seq.

Kelly joined Corr Cronin in 2012 and was elected partner in 2019. He has been recognized in Best Lawyers in America as “One to Watch” every year since 2021. Super Lawyers named Kelly a “Rising Star” in Washington from 2016 through 2022, and a “Super Lawyer” since 2023. In 2018, Kelly was admitted as an Associate Fellow by the Litigation Counsel of America, a trial lawyer honorary society devoted to promoting superior advocacy and ethical standards in the practice of law.

Prior to Joining Corr Cronin, Kelly served as a federal law clerk to United States District Judge Edward F. Shea in the Eastern District of Washington. He is an alum of Dartmouth College and the University of Washington School of Law, where he graduated with highest honors, served as an Executive Editor on the Washington Law Review, and was admitted to the Order of the Coif.

Kelly serves on the Board of Directors of the New Discovery School, and previously served for five years as Legal Chair of the Board of Directors of the Blue Ridge Neighborhood Club, and for 10 years on the Board of Directors of the Washington Climbers’ Coalition, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting and promoting rock climbing access across the state. Kelly is the author of two guidebooks to nationally-recognized rock climbing areas in Washington and remains active in Washington’s outdoor recreation community.
