Kelley Simoneaux  - Attorney & Disability Rights Advocate

Kelley became a T-12 paraplegic as a passenger in a car wreck when she was 16 years old. She is the founder of The Spinal Cord Injury Law Firm, PLLC where she represents individuals following a spinal cord injury. Kelley has committed her professional life to help those with spinal cord injuries and has also expanded her practice to include working on issues surrounding civil rights and disability justice.

When Kelley is not in the courtroom, she is fighting for greater accessibility in her community.  After being denied a ride by a rideshare company, due to her wheelchair, she began a national campaign called Wheel2Ride, focused on education and policy change in accessibility and inclusivity for rideshares also known as Transportation Network Providers (TNPs).

Kelley's discussion on policy changes on behalf of the disability community has led her from town halls to Capitol Hill and she has dedicated her time to serving on various boards to guide local governments and agencies on how to include the disability voice in conversations surrounding transportation, employment, and strengthening community accessibility and inclusion. Kelley is the mom of a 7-year-old daughter, a 4-year-old son, and a newborn son. She enjoys traveling the world with her family and uses any rare moment alone to practice adaptive yoga.
