Client Comments

"David Klapheke is very intelligent and prepares very thoroughly. His low key demeanor works very well with juries. Even though he is low key, he is tenacious in getting the right information out of every witness. He communicates very well, and in a timely manner, with the client. He has successfully tried a variety of railroad cases to jury verdict."

"Mr. Klapheke has represented CSX for approximately 10 years. He is extremely bright and articulate. At trial he is very well organized, presents the information to the jury in a logical and well-reasoned manner, and is a strong advocate for his client. He has a very high success ratio in the suits he has tried for CSX. Outside the court room, Mr. Klapheke is pleasant, charming, and very good in social situations. He responds very quickly to the client's inquiries by telephone or e-mail."

"Mr. Klapheke has provided outstanding legal analysis in the representation of State Farm. His candor and business acumen have been of great benefit to me as a client. It is rare that your outside counsel really understands your business and philosophy; when that does occur it makes for a much more meaningful relationship and makes collaboration easy. Mr. Klapheke has always provided timely responses to questions and assignments. I highly recommend Mr. Klapheke - not just for his legal work, but also because he is a man of character and integrity."
