Attorney Spotlight: Kellie Rahl-Heffner

Attorney Kellie Rahl-Heffner, a partner at Gross McGinley, currently serves as Chair of the Family Law Practice Group. She came to the firm in 2017 and swiftly rose through the ranks. Kellie builds her practice through her steadfast dedication to her clients, fighting for their interests and for fair outcomes.  Prior to coming to Gross McGinley, Kellie worked for over eleven years as an attorney with North Penn Legal Services, providing legal advice and representation to underserved, less fortunate individuals.  

Kellie has spent many years perfecting her legal skills and is well-versed in the Lehigh and Northampton County family court systems, representing individuals in family law disputes. As an experienced arbitrator, Kellie also counsels families in matters that can best be resolved outside of the courtroom. Kellie’s passion for law comes from her drive to problem solve and help people through innovative strategies.

Kellie approaches law and community with resolve and is inspired by her idol, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who is quoted as saying “Fight the fight that you care about. But do it in a way that will lead others to join you,” and that is just what Kellie does. She inspires those around her to work with a passion for what they do. True to her civic-mindedness, Kellie currently serves on the board of directors for Habitat for Humanity Lehigh Valley, is on the Paralegal Advisory Committee, is the current Board Secretary for Pinebrook Family Answers in Allentown and is an active member and supporter of the LGBTQ+ community.

As a dedicated “dog mom”, Kellie enjoys spending time with her three dogs Abbey, Donavon, and Mia. In shelters, black dogs are often overlooked for adoption. Kellie steps up and makes a concerted effort to support and even adopt these oft-neglected pets.
