Tammy Kehe, Owner and President of Network Affiliates, carries a deep admiration for her experiences with the late Norton Frickey who pioneered legal advertising and personally hired Kehe in 1987.

Kehe has been a recognized speaker and panelist at both local and national legal conventions.

“Client relationships are, and always have been, our top priority,” says Kehe. “Network members are like family to us, and we cultivate those relationships with our own experience and personal investment in every partnership we make. We cherish our clients!”

It’s hard to explain what a Vice President of production services does. Some days I sit in that big director’s chair and yell “action”. Other days I sit in a room with our amazing and talented creative staff thinking of the next great legal creative campaign that will generate all kinds of leads and cases. And others, I’m sitting in an edit suite nitpicking over the tiniest of details, because what may seem like a trivial detail actually makes a big difference in the end product. I’m very grateful to work with such an amazing group of creatives, producers, editors, sound engineers, colorists, photographers and on and on. We take a lot of pride in what we do at Network, and we do legal creative like nobody else. We know our creative isn’t meant for every law firm, but what we do know is we’re going to give it everything we’ve got to make sure the clients we do work with have the best creative in their market, and are blowing the doors off the competition. I love what I do, I love this place, and I’m very proud of what we create.

An Account Director at Network Affiliates since the mid-90s, Brian serves as a primary point person between the agency and the attorney advertising clients. He tries to approach each work day with a simple motto –understand what the client is saying or asking, respond as promptly and appropriately as possible and learn something new. “I’m very ‘seasoned’ in my role at Network Affiliates. I don’t know all the answers, but I’m completely focused on finding a right answer…and the best solution. Network Affiliates is a wonderfully collaborative agency that is exceptionally privileged to work with some of the country’s leading law firms. After 20+ years, I’m still honored to come to work each day.”

After more than 10 years in marketing, seven as a Media Buyer/Planner in the Automotive Industry, Kasey joined Network Affiliates’ Team in 2020. “Planning and buying media within the automotive industry was a wonderful experience, but after a decade, I was ready to expand and grow my expertise within a new vertical .” So the Montreal native, and longtime resident of South Florida packed up her car and moved to Denver. “I’ve loved digging into media buying for personal injury attorneys. Although the mediums may be similar (TV, Cable, Radio, Outdoor and Streaming Media), the thought process for selling and stimulating demand for a product is vastly different than the thought process for elevating a brand and “selling” a professional service. My philosophy has always been to use a firm but fair approach in negotiating.” A proud alumnus of the University of Florida (Go Gators!), Kasey enjoys her time away from the office discovering her new hometown, learning to exercise at altitude and learning to ski (and drive in the snow). Outside of the fact I have a naked cat (Hi Drax!), most people are surprised to know I have a love of music and am an avid record collector.
