More About Tom Kline

In more than three decades of practicing personal injury law, Thomas R. Kline has forged an incomparable record of courtroom victories — some with remarkable results against seemingly incredible odds. Beginning with a jury verdict of $5.1 million in the early 1980s, Kline has since achieved hundreds of seven- and eight-figure jury verdicts and settlements. As a result, he has received a litany of accolades and recognition, including his position as past president of the Inner Circle of Advocates, described by The Washington Post as "a select group of 100 of the nation's most celebrated trial lawyers."

Most recently, as chair of the Plaintiffs Management Committee of the Amtrak 188 multidistrict litigation consolidating all cases in the federal court in Philadelphia, Kline was instrumental in establishing a $265 million settlement program for passengers injured and families of those who died. It is believed to be the largest such settlement in railway history. Kline continues to lead this important litigation.

Tom Kline has been honored for 15 consecutive years, 2004-2018, as the No. 1 attorney in Pennsylvania by the independent rating service Super Lawyers, an accomplishment unmatched by any lawyer across the nation. He also has been chosen by Best Lawyers as a Philadelphia Medical Malpractice "Lawyer of the Year" and as among the nation's best lawyers every year since 1995. And, of the more than 1.2 million lawyers in the United States, Kline is named as among “The 500 Leading Lawyers in America” and the leading personal injury plaintiffs' lawyer in Pennsylvania by the independent review organization Lawdragon, which describes Kline as an "ever influential and zealous advocate." Lawdragon previously featured Kline as "one of Philadelphia's legendary litigators" and noted recently that he was among only 50 nationally named as a Lawdragon every year since 2015, placing him among "The Legends."

A Godsend … dogged determination

Andy Stern and his team were a Godsend to me. The time and attention to detail spent on my case were second to none. They never gave up! I will never forget their kindness, their availability and their dogged determination which really paid off in the end!

Savvy... skilled ... wise

When my sister died, I was consumed with wanting to do right by her, especially if her death could have been prevented but for someone's negligence. Enter Tom Kline. Tom was savvy enough to handle roving reporters, skilled enough to manage complex litigation and wise enough to know how to deal with a grieving family with care.

Fought feverishly

I had the best experienced legal team imaginable. They were patient and understanding throughout the whole ordeal. They knew how sensitive I was concerning the care of my brain-injured child and fought feverishly to win my case. It was a long battle and we were victorious!

Compassionate and real

After being rejected by several other prominent law firms, Tom Kline took our case, telling us that he was ‘all in’ and that he would fight for us to make sure the parties responsible for our loss would be held accountable. Tom is a compassionate and real human being who felt our pain and was able to convey the depth of that pain and our hardships to the jury. When you lose a loved one, there is no “victory” in court, but with the persistence of Tom Kline and his staff, we were vindicated. Those responsible were, indeed, held accountable.

One victim of the Amtrak 188 derailment in which eight people were killed and more than 200 were injured

I want to express my sincere gratitude for the work you've done for the victims of the Amtrak derailment on May 12th, 2015. I want to thank you for your professional and personalized approach in dealing with me and my inquiries. While a settlement was the result, I feel that the process of receiving information, being able to follow the case and knowing that I was working with a trustworthy team was the most valuable realization from this experience. This process has helped me understand the events of that night, gain closure and has gotten me closer to who I was on May 11th, 2015.
