Practice areas

Alexander Klein is the head of Barket Epstein’s commercial litigation unit and a co-chair of its division on Civil Rights. He joined the firm in 2013 after having worked for the Bank of New York Mellon and Merrill Lynch, as well as on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. He then graduated from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law with a full merit scholarship.

 

Since joining the firm, Mr. Klein has helped grow the civil litigation practice exponentially. In the commercial sphere, he has represented and won cases for companies of all sizes, from growing local businesses to international publicly traded corporations. He has won cases that clients and prior lawyers labeled “impossible,” and won decisions that changed the law for clients’ respective industries. He has also been at the cutting edge of a range of litigation practice areas spanning from commercial finance to scholastic discipline to the ever-sensitive interface between civil and criminal law.

 

In addition to his commercial practice, Mr. Klein has been a driving force in Barket Epstein’s renowned division on civil rights. In that capacity, he has contributed to several newsworthy matters, including Christopher Loeb’s civil rights case that helped lead to the imprisonment of Suffolk County’s District Attorney and Chief of Police and Samuel Brownridge's wrongful conviction case against the City of New York.  He has also represented clients in quieter but equally important matters, recovering millions of dollars on behalf of many disadvantaged members of society.

 

Applying his commercial and financial background, Mr. Klein also represents criminal defendants in high-stakes white collar federal cases. There, in the white collar sphere, he has been recognized several years in a row by Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star.”

Great experience, very satisfied with results, highly recommend...
I had the pleasure of meeting Alex after I was referred to him and his law office by a family member. I had been in a serious car accident and sustained a fracture to my lower spine resulting in major surgery on my back. My profession is a physical one and the injury threatened my livelihood, not to mention my day-to-day physical well-being. Alex was communicative, helpful, and always available to answer my questions, and his staff was equally supportive. In the end, Alex recovered a substantial sum for me and it ended up being more than 7 times what the insurance company initially offered. I can't recommend Alex enough and I am so thrilled with the outcome. The settlement I received will have a positive impact on my life from here forward, and that result is priceless. I'm so grateful to Alex and his staff.

Thank You Alexander
Alexander and the staff at Barket Epstein, LLC were extremely professional, answering all my questions, and assisting me in every step of the case. My car accident was the first time I was involved in any sort of lawsuit and they kept me completely calm throughout the process. I never doubted for a minute that they had my best interest at heart and sought the best outcome they could. Alex is an incredible negotiator and I was extremely pleased.

Thank you Alex Klein
Thank you Barket, Epstein, Kearon, Aldea & LoTurco, LLP and especially Alexander R. Klein, Esq. This firm was recommended by my brother-in-law who knew the partners very well having worked in the court system. Alex was the lawyer in the firm who handled my case. I was being sued by my daughter on a personal matter. Although I was advised as to the severity of the suit, how much she could potentially sue for, and totally wipe me out, I was also reassured that they would present a rigorous defense to the claims and that she could not succeed unless she proved her case. After nearly 18 months of back and forth negotiations (which I am told is not long for NY cases), Alex obtained a "discontinuance with prejudice," which means the lawsuit was discontinued, nothing was paid out by me (except legal fees) and I cannot be sued on that issue again. The best possible resolution. During that entire time Alex was always available, including weekends and evenings, to answer any questions and to explain what was occurring and to keep me as calm as possible. Thank you, Alex. I would definitely recommend you and the firm for excellent legal advice and representation.

Alexander Klein
A friend referred me to Barket Epstein Kearon Aldea & LoTurco, LLP for help in case of shareholder fraud. My friend said everyone he referred had been satisfied in the end. Thankfully, I am now among those satisfied also. I worked with Alex Klein, and he successfully represented my interests in a case of corporate malfeasance and executed a flawless strategy ensuring the best possible outcome. Alex was always very responsive by both email and phone and took the time to explain the applicable laws and his thoughts on how best to proceed at each step. The matter was resolved more quickly than I had hoped and without the need to file suit. He is extremely personable, knowledgeable, and strategic. I highly recommend him and believe you will be in good hands for your legal issue.

Personal Injury Case
Alex and associates at Barket Epstein Kearon Aldea & LoTurco, LLP who represented me after my unfortunate injury were always in my corner and were there when I had any questions or concerns. From their knowledge and expertise he was able to provide certainly contributed to the compensation I've received in return once my case concluded. I would certainly recommend Alex if you are in need of an attorney.

Alexander Klein - 5 stars
Alex Klein is an excellent attorney who I highly recommend. I was involved in a horrific auto accident and suffered numerous serious injuries. Through a family friend, I was referred to this practice. Over the course of almost three years (extended due to COVID), I found Alex to be knowledgeable and supportive. His calm demeanor, composure, and support were definitely assets when I was concerned about unfamiliar law proceedings. Alex had great patience and promptly returned all calls and carefully and clearly answered all questions. The insurance offered to settle for $30,000 and by Alex working on my case, I was awarded 8.5 times more! This was truly validation for me. Thank you, Alex! If you want a lawyer who is trustworthy, hardworking, and knowledgeable, then Alexander Klein should be your first choice!

Better than expected
Alex is a great attorney and a very good man. This was the first time in my sixty years that l needed an attorney and Alex listened and understood . Alex spent a lot of time and legwork on my case and I felt very comfortable dealing with him. Alex’s hard work was the difference, I can’t praise the man enough. We had a very favorable outcome.

Alexander Klein
The experience with Mr. Klein and his firm's colleagues was exceptional across the board. Professionally speaking, Mr. Klein proved to be a knowledgeable and skilled defense attorney: listening attentively, articulating well, and expertly and thoroughly analyzing alternatives for addressing the case. He strategically and aggressively responded to the opposing side's causes of action by cutting through and capitalizing on inaccuracies and misstatements of law cited by the plaintiffs' lawyer. As a result, the court summarily dismissed the allegations on all counts - a tremendous outcome. On a personal level, Mr. Klein was cordial and patient; managed the case intelligently and empathetically; shepherded his clients through the process to ensure they understood it and their options; and remained consistently accessible and open to discussion. All this, of course, made for a productive and supportive relationship with him and a less stressful undertaking in general. A priceless advocate who earns the highest recommendation.

Excellent results
I and my company was sued by my former employer in a multi million dollar claim of damages. This was a vengeful lawsuit and Alex aggressively fought for us from the start. Thanks to Alex the case was immediately thrown out by the judge. This case was then appealed to the appellate division where Alex again successfully achieved another victory which was the nail in the coffin for these losers that wasted all this money to sue me and my new company. Well thanks to Alex “They can Judge Kiskes my ass”.

Patient, Result Driven, Highly Recommend
My family found itself in a very complicated matter which resulted in the potential loss of a significant amount of money. We were fortunate to find and work with Alex. He was extremely sensitive and patient with all of us and did everything to limit any additional loss and recoup a substantial sum of money. This case involved FINRA and his knowledge of the Financial Industry and specific to process of bringing a case against a Financial organization and Financial Advisor were critical to our success. He explained our options, typical outcomes and prepared us for the process. He brought a unique prospective to the case which drove home what had taken place and thankfully brought us to a positive outcome. I highly recommend Alex if you find yourself in the need of a lawyer.

UNPRECEDENTED RESULTS IN A DUI LITIGATION
I can't thank Alexander Robert Klein enough for the work he did on my behalf on a complicated DUI case. I contacted Barket Marion Epstein & Kearon, LLP Attorneys at Law and was well represented by Mr. Klein. I just went through arguably the toughest year of my life, dealing with a career change, relocation, and personal - family challenges. As my attorney, he displayed a level of professionalism that was beyond exemplary and took a keen interest in my case. Alex is extensively knowledgeable of the law, and was courteous and forthright about my case from the very beginning. I was also extremely impressed with how organized and prepared he was, contacting me the day before and in the morning prior to appearing in court. He spent as much time with me as I needed even after an appearance and was always available to answer my questions or just to put my worried mind at ease. He reassured me that my case was in good hands and that he would do his very best to defend me in my time of need. I was facing a very serious situation where my life and career were at stake. As a United States veteran, an individuals integrity means everything to me; I trusted him with this case and continue to trust his direct advice and wise council. His defense was crafted with an "out of the box" mindset and resulted in a dismissal of my case. I couldn't be happier with his level of integrity, his preparedness, and his ability to successfully navigate the justice system. I would not hesitate to strongly recommend him to anyone!

This man was amazing!
I came to Alex in absolute frustration. My incident had completely changed my life.He was beyond compassionate and patient in explaining whatever questions I asked. He was aggressive and very professional. I knew Alex was going make sure I got justice no matter what it took! I came to him last November within a year I won my settlement case of 700 thousand dollars!!!! He was beyond genius. Most cases like mine will take several years . How he won this case so fast I have no idea but Im beyond grateful! I would recommend this man to anyone. You will always be on the wining team. C.Corr New York,New York
