Klein Legal and Mediation Center was founded on the idea that there is a better way to help people with their legal disputes. We believe in finding peaceful and productive ways to resolve disputes and we want to provide a positive and memorable experience to everyone we work with. We recognize that we, as practitioners, are accustomed to working within the legal system, but that it can be very confusing, scary, and intimidating for people in the midst of a lawsuit or legal dispute. We focus on good communication, responsiveness, and working with our participants to find sensible and workable solutions to those concerns.
