Klein has more than 25 years of experience defending product manufacturers in complex product liability litigation, dealer and distributor termination litigation, and toxic tort litigation. Although Klein has litigated in over half of the state courts in the country – and has gone to verdict in 10 different states – the majority of his cases are tried in the notoriously tough courtrooms of Texas and the Southwest. Klein is renowned for fearlessly defending clients in these hostile jurisdictions. His knowledge of mechanical automotive, motorcycle, and power tool design and his compelling jury rapport have earned him a formidable reputation as trial counsel for companies including General Motors, Ford, Nissan, and Fuji Heavy Industries, the parent company for Subaru.
Klein received his J.D., cum laude from Baylor Law School in 1984. He was a member of the National Order of Barristers and an Associate Editor of the Baylor Law Review.
Bowman and Brooke LLP is a nationally recognized trial firm with one of the largest product liability practices in the country. The firm has offices in Minneapolis, Phoenix, Detroit, San Jose, Los Angeles, Richmond, Columbia, Dallas, Austin, San Diego, Miami and Orlando.
