Mr. Klein is the founder of our firm, and has considerable experience in nearly every area of law. His early career included everything from wills and trusts to divorces and minor criminal defense. In recent years his practice has been focused primarily on estate planning matters, including complex trusts, family business and farming planning, probate, and drafting wills. He also handles a variety of real estate matters involving homes, farms, and businesses.

Even though Mr. Klein maintains a very active full-time practice, he also finds time to devote to several charitable, community, and professional endeavors. He was instrumental in founding both the DeKalb County Estate Planning Council and the DeKalb County Community Foundation.  His love of local history has prompted his involvement in a number of historical societies and organizations. Most recently he agreed to serve on the founding board of the DeKalb Area Agricultural Heritage Association, and to serve as a chapter author of the DeKalb County Historical Society’s upcoming new history volume intended to span 1960-2010.
