Gerald A. Klein has tried more than 30 cases to verdict. His success in the courtroom is underscored by the numerous accolades and recognitions he has achieved throughout his career, including selection by his peers as "Trial Lawyer of the Year" by the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association in 2003 and again in 2009.

Mr. Klein represents both plaintiffs and defendants in business litigation, legal malpractice, real estate, trade secrets, unfair competition, and insurance bad faith. He has also served as an expert witness in legal malpractice matters.

His tenacity in the courtroom led to a $26 million recovery, including punitive damages, in a breach of contract/fraud case against a major media company. Mr. Klein recovered $10 million in a legal malpractice case against one of California's largest law firms and $12 million in a breach of contract case that settled on the first day of trial.
