Rainmaker Q&A: Kluger Kaplan's Alan Kluger
By Kluger Kaplan September 2, 2016
Founding member of Kluger Kaplan Silverman Katzen & Levine PL, Alan J. Kluger is a Miami-based powerhouse trial attorney who advocates for his clients at all stages of the litigation process. Kluger is a veteran courtroom lawyer who represents some of the nation’s largest businesses and most prominent individuals in their most challenging and complex cases.
Many of his clients come to him after first facing him as an adversary and determining that Kluger’s tough, no-nonsense litigation tactics and creative, out-of-the-box thinking is what they need for their own disputes. His practice is guided by three key principles: thorough preparation, thoughtful strategy and mastery of the facts and the law. These are the reasons he consistently earns top rankings by peer-reviewed publications such as The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA and Florida Super Lawyers.
As devoted as he is to his clients, Kluger is equally passionate about his community. He and his wife, retired Judge Amy Dean, created a private charitable foundation, the Dean-Kluger Charitable Foundation, which supports various local and national charitable organizations.

But that is what puts me in the best position to understand the issues that they face and give the trusted advice that they need.
