Steve Klearman and his staff have been extremely helpful to me in the duration of my auto injury case. After my accident, I called and was seen almost immediately. They accommodated my two year old son while my options were discussed. I have referred other cases to them. Steve Klearman is professional, witty, and straight to the point. He is a no-nonsense kind of guy. I can see why he's very popular in the Reno area. If I need and attorney in the future, I will call Steve.

After being injured in a car accident, I never even thought to get an attorney. But let me tell you, the process is a long, very involving and confusing process. In the end, the other peoples insurance didn't want to pay for the damages done.
Being disabled and having to pay for all medical bills out of pocket, it wasn't something I could just let go and allow the insurance company to walk all over me. I called and met with at least six or seven different attorneys about my case, and Steven was far and away the best. He actually answered all my questions during our consultation, and was more interested in talking about what was best for me and what he could do for me, unlike others who just wanted to talk about what THEY could get out of my case.
His whole office and staff were very help full through the whole process. They literally took care of everything for me. Whenever I had a question, it was answered directly upon calling, no need to wait for days for someone to call back.
In the end we ended up settling out of court. We could have gone farther, and this would have resulted in Steven himself earning more money as well, but he recommended to settle, as it worked best for ME. He truly looks after his clients, and that seems a hard thing to come by if you have ever dealt with any other attorneys in the area. I know if I am ever injured again, he is the first person I am calling, and I will only recommend him to my family and friends.

I endorse this lawyer. I’ve had the opportunity to work with Steve for over a year now. His professionalism and competence is inspiring and has earned him the respect of his colleagues, clients, judges, and opposing counsel. Steve’s exceptional attention to detail and vast knowledge of the intricacies and nuances of personal injury law consistently results in outstanding outcomes for his clients. Steve generously shares his expertise with other attorneys as he is the author of "Elements of Nevada Legal Theories", a book that serves as an excellent guide to Nevada civil law and is widely used by lawyers and judges throughout Nevada.
