Walid A. Zarifi

Walid has been practicing law in Arizona since 2005. For the first several years, Walid was an attorney with the same Phoenix law firm at which both of his colleagues, Matthew J. Kelly and Kevin C. McCoy, began their legal careers. For the next eight years, Walid was a sole practitioner in Tucson. Coming from a family of builders, Walid has roots in Arizona real estate. At 18, he became a licensed real estate salesperson and, shortly thereafter, a broker. Naturally, Walid's practice includes commercial and residential real estate development and finance, real and personal property leasing, business law, and corporations and business organizations. Walid also has significant experience as a trial and appellate lawyer, in administrative law, family law (particularly high-end and sophisticated divorce matters), probate and criminal defense. In fact, Walid has represented more than 100 clients in DUI and other criminal matters over the years. In January 2017, Walid decided to bring his legal talents back to Phoenix by joining Kelly McCoy, PLC.
