I am a graduate of Albright College and Widener University School of Law where I was a two-year member of the Widener Law Review. Upon graduation, I became an Assistant District Attorney for the first 5 years of my legal career in which I handled cases ranging from Speeding tickets to Homicide cases. I left the District Attorney's Office to start the Criminal Defense department at Paul Young Associates, where I was made partner 5 years later and the name of the firm was changed to Young, Klein and Associates.
When I am not in the office, I enjoy cooking with my family and I am a huge fan of the Beatles.
I pride myself on telling clients truthfully what to expect from their case. I do not tell clients what they want to hear just to get a case, nor do I scare clients into retaining me. I feel that the best clients are ones who are well informed which I why I like to speak in detail over the phone with a prospective client so they know what to expect when then come in for a free consultation.
I have been named as one of the Top 100 Criminal Defense Attorneys in the state of Pennsylvania by the American Society of Legal Advocates (ASLA) and one of the Top DUI Defense Attorneys in Pennsylvania by the National Advocacy for DUI Defense (NADD).
