Efficiency of a Small Firm with the Firepower of a Big Firm

Klein & Wilson provides legal services that demonstrate a high level of experience, dedication, and responsiveness to clients' needs. Klein & Wilson is a small firm that has produced giant results, including a $26 million recovery for one client. Klein & Wilson's clients receive the same quality representation provided by large firms, personal attention, and cost-efficiency not available in large firms.

Klein & Wilson is the firm of choice for sophisticated purchasers of legal services who want trial-tested experience for complex business litigation. Klein & Wilson's attorneys have extensive experience in business and commercial litigation, including contract disputes, partnership disputes, shareholder disputes, and LLC disputes; real estate litigation, including lease disputes, residential litigation, real property disputes, and landlord-tenant disputes; and intellectual property disputes, including unfair competition and trade secrets, trademark infringement, and copyright infringement.

Advantages of a Small Firm

While large firms provide substantial manpower to staff cases, they also have overhead to keep busy. This overhead results in higher costs to clients without better results. The net result is that large firms "over-lawyer" many cases, at great and unnecessary expense to clients. At large firms, senior partners often pass important work off to younger, less-experienced associates. Overstaffing generally increases clients' legal fees and prevents a single attorney from having a comprehensive grasp of the case. As a case is passed from one lawyer to another, critical case issues inevitably fall through the cracks.

Klein & Wilson is discriminating as to which cases (and clients) it accepts because of the firm's dedication to excellence and attention to detail. Klein & Wilson assigns a single attorney to supervise a matter from the first pleading until the verdict, ensuring the trial attorney is intimately familiar with every stage of the proceedings and legal fees are not wasted educating other lawyers. Despite being a small firm, Klein & Wilson has no difficulty keeping up with its larger competitors. In fact, some of the largest firms in California have complained they had trouble keeping up with Klein & Wilson. Klein & Wilson's Significant Case Results against large firms speak for themselves.

Use of Modern Technology

Klein & Wilson's attorneys are experts in the use of cutting edge technology during discovery and at trial. Klein & Wilson routinely makes trials more interesting by using multimedia, including computerized document and video retrieval, videotaped depositions, and animation. Klein & Wilson has such a prominent reputation in the area of modern trial tactics, that many of the largest law firms in the country, as well as the Los Angeles District Attorney's office, the Ventura County District Attorney's office, and the leading trial organizations, asked Klein & Wilson to present seminars on how to use technology at trial. Technology is an important component of Klein & Wilson's trial success.

Early Evaluation of Settlement and Litigation Strategy

Because litigation is expensive, clients should explore settlement early and imaginatively. Unfortunately, many litigants explore settlement only after expensive discovery has been completed, and the trial date is rapidly approaching. Often, the amount of legal fees clients incur by the time of trial is so high, settlement becomes difficult. Klein & Wilson recognizes the best time to settle a case is at the outset, before clients incur substantial legal fees.

Klein & Wilson spends time at the beginning of the case formulating a careful litigation strategy that expedites settlement, if possible. If the case cannot be settled, this strategy serves as a road map to prepare the case for trial at the lowest possible cost.

Most "litigators" are not trial veterans and take vast amounts of expensive and unnecessary discovery while overlooking crucial evidence. As a matter of course, Klein & Wilson spends substantial time with the client at the outset of the case to make sure only appropriate discovery is completed. Throughout the litigation process, Klein & Wilson keeps the client informed of the case status, seeking authority for each substantial expenditure. As a result of this communication, the client can make informed decisions regarding strategy and settlement. While Klein & Wilson cannot guarantee success in every matter, the firm can guarantee its clients receive effective and affordable representation.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
