Klores Perry Mitchell (formerly Bruce J. Klores & Associates) has provided innovative winning litigation strategies on behalf of its individual and business clients for over 30 years. The firm's determined approach and focus on results has earned a national reputation for zealous, creative and compassionate representation of individuals, families and businesses. Its representation of victims and families of medical negligence and other catastrophic injuries, have led to verdicts and settlements totaling well over $250 million.
Our depth and wide-range of experience in the courtroom provides clients with an unparalleled level of client service. Our lawyers cull from their judicial clerkships, significant frontline experience practicing in large corporate law firms and their measurable record of success to provide our clients with best -in-class legal representation. Given the firm's Washington, D.C.-based roots, KPM has garnered the trust of the local community by winning their medical malpractice/personal injury cases, which has transitioned seamlessly to representing those same individuals in high stakes corporate, business disputes. The arrival of former Washington, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty as Special Counsel in 2011, contributed to the continued expansion and depth of the firm's practices.
We recognize the substantial responsibility we take on when we agree to represent individuals and businesses and we pay close attention to all factors that can influence the success of a case. We stay abreast of changes in the law and meld legal, medical and business issues to craft effective strategies so our clients have the best chance of winning. We regularly teach classes to legal professionals about our areas of practice, including medical malpractice, professional negligence, false claims and alternative dispute resolution. Our dedication to the practice and to our clients allows us to adjust to the obstacles that are invariably placed in front of us by bottomless-pocket opponents.
We believe strongly that each client - whether an individual or business entity - should be treated respectfully and with the care and attention their cases deserve. Indeed, it is often former clients, business leaders, physicians, other lawyers, judges and even hospital risk managers that refer matters to the firm.
The firm is also committed to fostering the quality of life for those who work in the firm and for those who live in the Washington, D.C. area. In 2002, the Bar Association of the District of Columbia awarded the law firm the "Quality of Life Award," recognizing the firm's treatment of all its employees. In 2001, the United Planning Organization awarded the firm the prestigious "Martin Luther King, Jr. Corporate Community Service Award" for its work with disadvantaged children. Prior awardees of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Award were corporate giants such as PEPCO and Safeway.
