Accolades and honors have followed. As The Legal Intelligencer wrote: ìAlong with partner Tom Kline, Shanin Specter left The Beasley Firm over a decade ago and now sits atop what many view as the most powerful plaintiffs firm ... with countless seven-figure verdicts and settlements to the firm.î Kline & Specter has attracted the best of the best lawyers.

The firm and its injury attorneys have won an extraordinary number of major settlements and record-setting jury verdicts throughout the country.
