David S. Klein has more than a quarter century of experience in a broad swath of complex legal issues. After obtaining his law degree in 1994, he was a practicing Family and Business Law attorney in Massachusetts for 8 years. Upon retiring from the Army with 27 years of service in 2002, he worked at the premier law firm in Augusta, continuing to hone his skills under the mentorship of some of the most talented and respected attorneys in Georgia. He was exposed to a wide variety of complex practice areas in both Federal and State cases, including insurance defense of personal injury, automobile and trucking accidents, railroad law, environmental law, negligence liability claims, criminal defense, tort defense, workers’ compensation, professional liability claims for physicians and lawyers, commercial litigation, securities litigation, estate planning and probate administration. Many such cases involved seven and eight figure dollar amounts.


It is this "Big Firm" case experience, combined with small firm customer service, that sets David apart from his legal peers. Most solo and small firm attorneys will never gain the type of experience in their entire careers that David brings to the table. 

David concentrates primarily on family, probate and criminal law. He was chosen in 2010 as Lead Faculty/Area Chair in the College of Criminal Justice and Security of the University of Phoenix (Augusta campus), overseeing the launch of the University’s Criminal Justice degree program while recruiting, training and supervising the CJ adjunct faculty, which included a veritable Who’s Who of local outstanding members of the criminal defense bar, law enforcement, corrections, and attorneys from both the Solicitor’s and District Attorney’s office, for over eight years. He is one of the few attorneys, legal and criminal justice professionals in the CSRA to have taught dozens of graduate and undergraduate Criminal Justice courses.  This is the type of experience that sets David apart from other attorneys and contributes to positive results in the courtroom for his criminal law, family law and probate clients. Experience Matters.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Professional legal service with estate planning and divorce.
Professional relationship for over 40 years. I hired Mr. Klein for estate planning and all items relating to that planning. 100% satisfied with everything he accomplished. He represented me from start to finish in a very complicated and highly contested separation/divorce case. A case that eventually reached The State of Georgia Supreme Court. Again 100% satisfied with the result and everything he accomplished. Honest and professional attorney.
