Kelly Giles 

Kelly Giles: Born Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, 1963.

Writer, and publisher. Kelly was educated at Trinity Western University in Canada

and at Pepperdine University School of Law. Several of Kelly’s poems can be found

on his Facebook page, and he has published numerous Six Word Memoirs on Smith Magazine’s website.

He was first published in the Times Colonist newspaper in Victoria, British Columbia while in the 3rd grade, when he wrote a letter to the editor about how integration was a wonderful thing, because you could learn so much from other cultures (despite having only one non-white classmate at the time).

 

His lifelong love of writing continued with such short stories as “Kentucky Fried Humans”, and was enhanced by both his high school careers and English instructors having him keep a journal for each class. His love of writing was so great that his English professor at Trinity begged him to change his major to English, but instead he spent four years getting a degree in business, only to finally figure out he  didn't have a business bone in his body.

Knowing only that he wanted to help others, he then got a law degree from Pepperdine and has been an immigration lawyer ever since. Since no one would believe him when he told them he was a starving lawyer, he has now decided to become a starving writer, with 3 poetry collections published to date.

Kelly is currently working with filmmakers on a documentary "Killing Justice" 

 “killing justice” (elevator pitch)


An adopted immigration lawyer who, at the age of 25, had lost his adoptive dad to a permanent head injury from a near-fatal car accident, begins working midway through his career with a trusted friend and colleague who offers him the kind of safety and security his parents once had. He trusts his friend to handle the business side of things, which he hates, leaving him free to simply help his immigrant clients.

Unfortunately, however, his “trusted” friend gets greedy, and uses the lawyer’s law license as his personal ATM, to enrich himself to the tune of around $800,000, and his wife to the tune of around $400,000, on about 80 fraudulent cases, out of a total caseload of nearly 1600 cases. 

The lawyer was unaware of his friend’s deception, having only been paid $16,000 on those 80 cases, or $200 per case, the same amount he’d been paid on the other 1500 cases handled during that same time period.

Since he was unaware of his friend’s deception, when he’s recorded by a client wearing a wire telling him “not to let them intimidate you”, he’s warning him not to let the government intimidate him into lying. 

His lawyer advises him, however, that the government prosecutor could easily emotionally manipulate a lawyer-hating jury into believing he was telling the client to lie, potentially doubling his maximum sentence from 2-3 to 5-6 years. 

When his wife’s breast cancer recurs from the stress of his case, the adopted immigration lawyer finally reluctantly agrees to take a bullshit plea, in order to reduce the risk of an extended separation from her, and ends up being sentenced to serve 10 months in federal prison.
