A lawyer who cares about you
I hired him 20 months after signing a release with my insurance company yet he was able to recover a significant amount of money. He kept me informed and was prompt to answer every single question. He is very warm and respectful. Most importantly, he knows the law. Having a nationally recognized trial lawyer on your side makes insurance companies think twice before deciding to lose in court. I highly recommend Rich.

Great Commercial Truck Case Lawyer!
Richard is fantastic! A large truck rear ended me and knocked me out. No insurance company contacted me. Within a few days of hiring Richard, his firm had obtained statements from witnesses, the 911 tape, talked with the EMT, and had an expert download the "black box" from the truck. He also helped me make arrangements with my employer to keep my job while I'm out if work. He helped me find ways to make ends meet while unable to work and still be able to pay my bills. He settle my case for great money! I highly recommend him!!!

Excellent Personal Injury Trial Attorney
Rich Klein has helped several family members in Injury cases over the past two decades. He also helped my grandfather get his job back when his employer fired him illegally on the basis of his age. Rich helped with the union grievance process and my grandfather was able to continue working until retirement with full benefits. I highly recommend Rich!

Great Personal Injury Attorney
I have had the pleasure of working with Rich Klein on several personal matters in the past. I am impressed with his knowledge of the law especially pertaining to personal injury cases. More impressive is his desire to want to do what's best for his clients. He truly cares. His fresh approach and strategy to each case is very much appreciated. I would highly recommend him and his firm.
