Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am happy and proud to share with you all that Rudolph Ramrup was found not guilty of the felony DWI charge after trial in Bronx County Supreme Court. Many of you have followed this case which we litigated for the past four years. The discovery motions resulted in the decision by Judge Price which mandated disclosure by the People of the actual gas chromatograms used when certifying the simulator solution used in a DWI arrest and breath test of a motorist. The consequence of the discovery failure was the preclusion of the breath test evidence. This result confirms that “that is the way it’s done” is not an acceptable practice. I am happy to share the motion to compel with any of you who wish to incorporate it into your practice.

In less than fourteen months, Alexander Klein took a personal injury case from beginning to end—first winning on liability, and then advocating for the plaintiff at a hearing in Brooklyn Supreme Court to obtain damages. The result was a judgment of $700,000.00 in favor of Barket Marion’s client.

This man was amazing!
I came to Alex in absolute frustration. My incident had completely changed my life.He was beyond compassionate and patient in explaining whatever questions I asked. He was aggressive and very professional. I knew Alex was going make sure I got justice no matter what it took! I came to him last November within a year I won my settlement case of 700 thousand dollars!!!! He was beyond genius. Most cases like mine will take several years . How he won this case so fast I have no idea but Im beyond grateful! I would recommend this man to anyone. You will always be on the wining team.

Barket Marion attorneys Steven Epstein and Aida Leisenring won the praise of a very satisfied client after achieving an amazing outcome in upstate New York.
Barket Marion attorney Alexander Klein recently secured the return of a siezed automobile and $59,000 in U.S. currency that was improperly taken from a Barket Marion client who had been wrongly suspected of having committed a federal offense.
Mr. Klein was able to convince the government not only that the seizure was improper, but that no federal charges were warranted.
“These seizures were made pursuant to civil forfeiture laws,” explained Mr. Klein. “And while these laws can be draconian, they also contain certain protections for people falling into their grips. Fortunately, we were able to use these protections to convince the federal government of their overreaching and to help our client recover his assets.”
