I first met Mr. Klest in 1994 and, a few years later, asked him to represent me in my claim against the Archdiocese of Chicago. His professional demeanor towards the defendant was tempered by his attention to my needs and concerns, never failing to return my calls and answer my questions in laymen’s terms.
He has unselfishly availed himself to helping strengthen and amend state laws to protect children from sexual predators.
In 2005 he represented me in my personal injury claim against a driver and again he did an excellent job on my behalf.
I highly recommend Joe Klest as an attorney with impeccable credentials.

I was referred to Joe Klest by a well respected group of friends because of his sterling record representing personal injury cases for special needs clients. He works tirelessly on his client's behalf against wealthy corporations who bring limitless money to the table to fight against the plaintiff. Joe gives his professional and prompt attention. He is empathetic and kind, always seeking our best interests, giving us peace of mind through the tough process. Joe also gives free consultations answering in detailed remarks. Joe is never hesitant about sharing his expertise when invited to speak to groups with special needs. I would recommend Joe above all other lawyers. He's the best.

Mr. Joe Klest is the most professional attorney I have ever worked with.I was involed in a very complex auto accident with personal injury. I called Mr. Klest at least 10 times .He had spent hours talking to me and would give me advise what to do. He took a personal intrest in me and my family as a friend pior to hiring him to represent me that he did not have to do.
Mr. Klest is a true professional in my eyes I feel I can call him for any personal advise a great friend to know

I have known Joe to have an excellent reputation in the personal injury field for years. He is as professional as they get and I have dealt with negotiations opposite him on civil matters numerous times. I strongly endorse endorse Joe.
