My background litigating coverage, contract, commercial and negligence claims provides unique experience which transcends forums, allowing me to aggressively, creatively and cost effectively defend interests of employers in Workers’ Compensation litigation. I defend employers by maintaining a pragmatic approach, focusing on well defined, clearly articulated strategic goals. I promptly analyze legal and factual issues, assess exposure and formulate a result-orientated defense strategy. I maintain primary- hands on involvement in all litigated matters. I vigorously defend my clients, yet maintain focus on reducing litigation costs and prompt closure. I have successfully defended waste haulers, manufacturers, PEO’s, construction companies, health care providers and insurance carriers in Michigan and Federal forums, by leveraging legal and factual defenses while maintaining utmost integrity. I recognize that my success is entirely dependent of my clients’ complete satisfaction.

David Klein is an excellent lawyer. He is a great advocator and litigator. Since my practice is solely criminal defense I do not hesitate to refer all civil matters to Mr. Klein. He is great to have on your side. I highly recommend David Klein to anyone who wants the pinnacle of legal representation.
