Copywrite Claim
"I was shocked when I received a letter from Higbee & Associates accusing me of copywriting infringement. I had no idea what to do or how to deal with it. Luckily, I found Griffin C. Klema, Esq online and contacted him for help. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. He explained the situation to me clearly and advised me on the best course of action. He contacted Higbee & Associates on my behalf which helped to lower my stress. I am very grateful for his representation and highly recommend him to anyone facing a similar problem."

Griffin was a pleasure to work with on our patent infringement case!
Griffin Klema has all of the best traits when you are looking for a diligent, knowledgeable, honest and hard working IP attorney. He is easy to communicate with and get ahold of when anything comes up and promptly shares updates. He also goes out of his way to make sure you understand the good and the bad about particular strategies in a case. He has a way of making hard to understand legal jargon easy to grasp. He always goes the extra mile and if he doesn't immediately have an answer to a question, he will take the time to research and make sure you are getting accurate information. When working with Griffin, I know my company is in good hands. I would highly recommend him.

Copywrite issue
Mr. Klema was a pleasure to work with. He was professional, clear and to the point. His experience and expertise was obvious right from the get go. Having an attorney who was down to earth was refreshing. He helped us settle within an acceptable period of time and amount. I highly recommend utilizing his services.

Griffin exceeded my expectations on a BS claim & I would refer him to others & plan on using him in the future for other “trademark” related issues… feel free to reach out to me for more details

Honest , Fair and Trustworthy!
I hired Mr. Klema after days of searching for an attorney to help me with an unusual case. Or shall I say he offered to help me after numerous attorneys refused. My case was emotional and Griffin helped me through it by listening, being up front and honest. I had a pet that escaped my yard and was found and the person who had him refused to return him. The police said it was a civil matter. Mr. Heckles , my 5 yr old tortoise, was gone forever. Until Griffin decided to help me. I know this isn’t a multi million dollar case but Mr. Klema treated it as tho it was. I have my tortoise back and my new baby Aldabra tortoise we named Griffin. I can’t say enough about a lawyer that will fight as hard for the “little” guy as he does for the “big” one.

Dedicated to his craft!
Working with Griffin was a pleasure. Not only did he take the time to explain everything in detail and offer his opinion whenever necessary, he was diligent in his efforts and used the exact wording and "voice" necessary to convey exactly what was desired. I have no doubt that if there were ever a need to work in IP again, we would rehire Mr Klema.

great human being, highly informed lawyer
we were sued for stopping a vendor services in Tampa, and being from Miami, first we hired a lawyer off the yellow pages who overcharged his worked hours, beside we noticed that the other party who was unfairly asking $6,000 contract cancellation, started to aske for $20,000, beside lawyer fees, A friend advised us to contact Griffin, and substitute our first lawyer, Griffin persuaded the truth with my partners, and spent over 8 hours, before taking the case, or accepting any consultation, and as we hired him, we realized the big hole that the first lawyer put us in, Mr Klema, not only offered discounts of his hours, based on his belief that the first lawyer cheated the work hours, but in less than two weeks, the other aggressive party became on the defense, many mistakes made by our first lawyer as well as by the adversary lawyer, became obvious. The language, efforts and honesty used by Griffin, can not be made by an average lawyer. Asking for honesty these days is a priority, but with getting highest level of knowledge, I recommend this great professional

medicine case
Herr Klema antwortete auf meine schriftliche Anfrage nach einer Vertretung in einer medizinischen Angelegenheit innerhalb eines Tages. Er nahm kurzfristig Kontakt mit dem Krankenhaus auf und sprach dort auch persönlich vor. Herr Klema war für mich immer erreichbar. Für Zwischenfragen stand er kurzfristig zur Verfügung. Herr Klema war immer freundlich und zuvorkommend. Ich empfehle ihn weiter.

Look no further
Always my first call for legal consultation. Griffin is very knowledgeable and practiced in many areas of law and has helped me with property law, estate planning, and even a medical billing dispute. Very professional with a personal touch, a truly trusted advisor. Look no further, this is the way law should be practiced.

Strong Character
Mr. Klema was the ultimate professional. He exhibited a strong work ethic and vast knowledge that you would expect of any top lawyer, but he also exhibited the honesty and transparency that is often hard to find in the legal profession. I was very happy with the work done by Mr. Klema and feel that he was very fair and transparent with his fee schedule and hours. His character is strong. Highly recommended.
