Outstanding law firm, their so charitable and have worked hard to help clients get compensation for their lost property,lost loved ones, terrible afflictions, ROUND UP ( AGENT ORANGE) cancers, medical malpractice,etc. etc etc . The lost time and money they went thru , the pain and suffering they experienced and their families,spouses and children,and or their own children who may have been the unfortunate ones sick themselves from the maladies, Caused by Round Up etc ,And least of all , their wives, children, and family usually ended up going through mental anguish trauma that makes them feel sad and alone in this wonderful world and country, having to go thru life without a dad or mom, cousin or sister or brother, uncle or aunt, or grandparents . And or mental illness or anxiety for their children.My hats off to someone fighting for the little ones, parents, grandparents. Against the greed of Corporations, shareholders, and their stock price. and their families went thru,

Horrible service. Never received updates. Never returned calls or emails for over 2 months! Do not waste your time!

I previously left an ugly review on here. Now, with me about to lose my career due to this injury , my negative review has blocked me from getting the help I need. I do a lot of referrals but mainly for criminal cases instead of civil. My ability to find and discover errors help me to develop a good rep so because people were use to running to me for good lawyers I applied the same approach to finding good civil attorneys as I did for criminal lawyers. And, so it worked . I found bulldogs in K&S. I referred my niece with a birth injury case and without violating anyone's anonymity I'm gone leave it at that. So now my employer who has clearly displayed negligence both in failing to train & supervise others resulting in a career ending injury, also avoided reporting the incident to the DOT, supplied trucks with both a faulty breaking system and transmission. I could go on. Locked me out for reporting and filing workers comp. Now guess what, some of the biggest bulldogs in the game won't touch my case cuz I opened my mouth n inserted my foot. I can't be mad because that's the game now a days. Can't have an attorney rep u while they mad at u. Gotta respect em for it. I learned just through researching the law that you never stop fighting, gotta be a bulldog and that's the kind of attorney we all should search for and hope in. So I say all this to say, watch we u say bout Kline & Specter , they've proven that they big dogs in the game an u never know when u gone need them. I know one thing, I'm thinking bout a career change now that my injury took me out the game, maybe a Paralegal, cuz just the the fight. The research the arguements makes te fight worth it.

I called explaining the full issue about a vert serious matter....I wanted to specify all my concerns and the representative was rushing with no understanding of his job and AjAy the manager told him to get off phone as they had other calls and I was taking to long. My urgency was laughed at by the manager AjAy this was a matter of life and death., so I guess if you are not respected enough and rushed by customer service and told I have other callers and a manager told agent to get off phone and I was laughed at by AjAy the manager I would not at all recommended this firm.How horrifying is that? Completely unacceptable.

After reading negative reviews, I was treated the same way. Had my file for nearly a year & I'm the one that had to keep calling to get updates. I was so disgusted after my last call, all of a sudden, they couldn't do anything for me, medical records were documented. Not once was I asked my deposition & my records. Hindsight I should've reported it to Bar Assoc. Don't wait on them too long, time will run out to file a claim.

I was out of state and was close to a time line that would have not allowed me the opportunity to get justice. The Attorneys at Kline &Specter tok on my case just in time and helped me. The most amazing legal assistant Michelle Zasada was always able to help me out with any questions or just to keep me calm. I would highly recommend this office to anyone that my need help like I did.

Worst law firm out there. They spend big bucks on tv ads but don't want a case unless it's a slam dunk- don't have to work for it case. Easy money only! RUDE intake person as well.

Photo of Kathleen C.

My case was settled and everyone got money, But they're holding my money pending medical liens. I don't have any medical bills yet they won't send my money. It's a shame that you have to get an attorney to get your money from an attorney!

Photo of K P.

Kline & Specter recently represented my husband and I in a product liability case.  From day one, everyone there treated us with kindness and respect and always took the time to respond promptly to our many, many questions and concerns. Our case was taken very seriously and much time and effort went into settling it.  We could not be more pleased with our legal representation and the outcome of our case.  Our case was complex and took years to complete, but my husband and I will be forever grateful to everyone at Kline & Specter who always looked out for our best interest and worked tirelessly on our behalf. If you are looking for an outstanding,  professional and competent law firm,  no need to look further than Kline & Specter.  They are the best of the best !! PS. A special heartfelt thanks to our attorney, Lee Balefsky !!

case was declined without a reason after intake. Never had a chance to speak to a lawyer. I suspect that it's just too complicated. Law firms say free Consultations, but in reality give no advice and are just cherry picking their cases. Beware.

Shelsby & Leoni, Personal Injury attorneys

Kline Specter Affiliation

Gil Shelsby and Rob Leoni are associated with the Philadelphia-based law firm Kline & Specter, a personal injury firm with some 30 attorneys (seven of whom are also doctors) and a staff of more than 100. Kline & Specter is one of the most highly regarded personal injury and whistleblower firms in the nation. Both Gil Shelsby and Rob Leoni are Of Counsel at Kline & Specter while maintaining their own firm, as well.

Shelsby & Leoni has the backing and benefit of Kline & Specter’s expertise and vast resources. For example, Kline & Specter was able to spend $750,000 investigating a single case – including examining some 40,000 documents, conducting 39 depositions and hiring 14 experts – that resulted in a $36.4 million settlement for a worker killed at a Delaware City, Del., refinery. (See Motiva)

Such assets are critical in litigation against large and formidable opponents such as government agencies or major corporations. In one such case, Kline & Specter was able to persevere in a case against Ford Motor Co. that lasted more than a decade and resulted in verdicts of $153 million and $52 million before settling out of court.

In another notable case, Kline & Specter won a $19.9 million verdict for a patient who was assaulted while in a Delaware hospital. That outcome represented a record at the time for a personal injury verdict in the state First State.

One of the Nation’s Best Law Firms

The firm has won national acclaim, including being named among the  BEST LAW FIRMS  in the United States for 2011-2012 by U.S. News Media Group and Best Lawyers. In addition to winning a litany of seven- and eight-figure personal injury verdicts in practice areas including medical malpractice, workplace, auto accident, premises and product liability, Kline & Specter also assists with government whistleblower cases. It also has a Mass Tort Department that litigates product and pharmaceutical cases, including its key role in the $4.85 billion Vioxx settlement and current denture cream and transvaginal mesh injury cases.

The firm is headed by attorneys  Tom Kline  and  Shanin Specter , both named among the “Best Lawyers in America,” Pennsylvania  Super Lawyers , and as members of the Inner Circle of Advocates, a select group limited to 100 of the best plaintiffs attorneys in the United States.

Many of Kline & Specter’s legal victories have made news, with hundreds of stories in newspapers and on television, including nationally on ABC’s Nightline and 20/20 and ESPN’s E:60. The firm and its lawyers have obtained verdicts and settlements that were among the largest ever in Pennsylvania, Delaware and across the United States. (See  Major Victories )
