Get To Know Your Attorney

  • Q:Why did you choose to become a personal injury lawyer?

    A:I like taking on the big bad insurance companies. I have always found it rewarding to stand up for regular everyday people and even the playing field for them against the insurance companies. When left to their own devices, insurance companies treat people very unfairly. My goal is to eliminate that unfairness for my injured clients.

  • Q:What makes Klenofsky Law Firm different from other law firms?

    A:Several things set me apart from the competition. First, I actually file lawsuits when necessary and litigate and try cases. Many personal injury firms either have no experience in real litigation or in the courtroom. Second, I maintain a close relationship with my clients and make myself completely available to them. There is a reason why our clients' reviews of our firm are so positive. It's because we are honest, knowledgeable, available, and get results.

  • Q:What is the first thing you do when you take on a new case?

    A:Formulate a game plan. I personally do this for every case. Practicing law is like playing chess. I have a plan and know what moves I plan on making from the beginning. Of course, as cases go on sometimes the game plan must change and we have no problem making creative moves down the road as well. It’s simple: We carefully analyze each case and execute the game plan to get our clients to high ground and experience success.

  • Q:Tell us about a case you are particularly proud of

    A:I put my heart and soul into every case I am hired for. Big or small, my clients and their personal injury cases are #1 to me. A recent case involved a young child bitten on the face by a dog, which severely disfigured him. We not only focused on getting that child compensated, but we also assisted with arranging plastic surgery exams and revision surgeries so that the child had the best possible physical outcome as well as financial outcome.

  • Q:What do you enjoy most about being a personal injury attorney?

    A:I have enjoyed the relationships I have made over the years with my clients. Many of my clients will call to check in from time to time or just call to say hello. The most gratifying part of my job is having a former client think enough of me and my firm to refer a family member or friend. I strive to reach that point with all of my clients.
