    Tom Kline is perhaps one of the best lawyers on the East Coast, certainly at the top of his profession. He has a very inventive approach to each case, it is almost as if he loved and cherished the case--he works and works it, and then has an incredible courtroom presence at trial to present the case to the jury.
