    Attorney Profile

    Attorney Lawrence H. Kleiner is the founder and owner of Kleiner Law in Closter, New Jersey. Certified as a Civil Trial Attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court, Mr. Kleiner has more than 28 years of legal experience, and he represents the rights and entitlements of clients throughout Bergen and Passaic counties and the surrounding areas who have legal needs involving any of the following:

    · Personal injury and bad faith insurance claims

    · Family law and divorce

    · Criminal defense

    · DUI/DWI and traffic violation defense

    · Business litigation

    · Zoning and municipal law

    Early in his legal career, Mr. Kleiner worked as an insurance defense attorney, so he has invaluable insight into the tactics insurance providers use to reduce or deny claims. Armed with this experience, he can devise the most effective strategies possible to help his plaintiff clients strive to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for the injuries and losses they incurred. He has recovered numerous substantial settlements and awards for those in need.

    Equally effective in other legal areas, Mr. Kleiner has successfully handled thousands of civil and criminal matters both inside and outside of the courtroom, including dozens of jury trials. From his efforts, he has achieved considerable success helping his clients obtain the favorable outcomes they expect and deserve both through settlement negotiations and litigation, and he has earned many top rankings from his peers along with numerous testimonials and referrals from his satisfied clients.

    A 1988 graduate of Rutgers College, Mr. Kleiner obtained his Juris Doctor in 1991 from Dickinson School of Law (now Penn State Dickinson Law). The New Jersey State Bar admitted him to practice that same year, and he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.

    Fully committed to his practice, Mr. Kleiner is a member of the Bergen County Bar Association, and he once served on the Board of Governors for the New Jersey Association of Justice. He has also served as a member of the Richard J. Hughes Inn of Court, and he currently acts as arbitrator with the Bergen County Civil Arbitration Program.
