Experience matters. I realize that there are many attorneys that you could choose for representation. However, my background as a Former Prosecutor sets me apart from other attorneys. I have handled in excess of 10,000 criminal cases over the past 25+ years in practice and I able to examine the case from both sides to best represent my clients.

My philosophy about the way I practice law is the same as what I tell my children - Treat people the way you wish to be treated. I treat my clients the way I would want to be treated if I was experiencing legal problems. I treat my clients with honesty, kindness and respect and I feel that a good lawyer should be financially affordable. I charge a fair price for my services and flexible payment plans can be arranged.

I do not tell clients what they want to hear just to get a case. I don't scare clients into retaining me. What I do is tell clients the truth. I talk to new clients over the phone, for however long it takes. When clients call me, I explain their options, give them my opinion about what could happen to them and I even quote them a fee and a payment plan, right over the phone. I believe that an informed client is the best client. Again, if I were having legal problems, that is the way that I would want to be treated.

Whomever you choose to represent you, do your homework. Ask questions and then ask more questions. Read reviews from former clients online on websites like Avvo.com. Get second opinions. You must be comfortable with your attorney and be certain that he has the experience to properly represent you in court.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Ellis Klein is a terrific attorney who represented my son in a DUI case. Ellis was understanding and sympathetic yet very forthright regarding the seriousness of the issue. He was extremely knowledgeable of the process and kept us informed at every step. He had a very professional presence, was confident (but not arrogant) and kept us calm throughout a very traumatic situation. He was a critical factor in my son receiving the best possible outcome from this DUI event. John Doe
★★★★★
Recently Mr. Klein helped me out with a criminal charge in which the outcome was the best possible situation for me. Ellis worked with me as far as a payment plan, knew the judge and officer and I couldn't ask for anything more out of a lawyer. I'm very happy with his performance and would recommend him to anyone.

★★★★★
Ellis literally gave me a new lease on life. I was facing a DUI, which would have affected my livelihood, my freedom and would have left me with a criminal record. Mr. Klein was able to have all the evidence suppressed by challenging the officer's cause for pulling me over. He was very thorough, leaving no stone unturned. His demeanor in court was confident and knowledgeable. He saved my reputation and my family from facing serious economic hardship. Thank You Anonymous

★★★★★
Like many young adults, I made a bad decision that resulted in very serious consequences. I was afraid and nervous. Ellis was very straight-forward when he explained things to me, telling what the best outcome could be as well as the worst. Through his knowledge, professionalism, and legal reputation, my case was resolved with the best possible outcome. I advise my friends not to make the same mistake that I did, but if they do I will highly recommend Ellis. I feel like I have been given a second chance. Anonymous
