Kevin P. Kleinpeter is a native of Baton Rouge and a member of the Kleinpeter Dairy family that has lived and farmed in south Louisiana since the late 1700s. He joins the Tomeny Law Firm after nine years of handling various litigation matters in civil and criminal courts.
Mr. Kleinpeter graduated from Catholic High School in Baton Rouge and earned his B.A. in Political Science from Louisiana State University. Mr. Kleinpeter received his J.D. from South Texas College of Law in May of 2000.
Martindale-Hubbell, the leading authoritative resource for information on attorneys worldwide, has given Mr. Kleinpeter an AV rating, an indication of his exemplary legal skills, stellar reputation—and highly respected, well-established practice. Only 2% of the attorneys in the United States receive a Martindale-Hubbell AV rating.
Mr. Kleinpeter’s practice is made up exclusively of litigation, including personal injury, class actions, mass actions, and criminal matters. He maintains a full trial docket in courts from Shreveport to Slidell and Lake Providence to Lake Charles—and nearly everywhere in between. A graduate of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA), Mr. Kleinpeter thrives in the courtroom and is comfortable trying cases of all sizes and complexity.
In 2011, Kevin was named a “Forty Under 40” Honoree by the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report. Since 1984, Business Report has showcased men and women under the age of 40 who are influencing decisions, capturing the entrepreneurial spirit and balancing the bottom-line results with involvement in community and charitable activities. More than 180 people were nominated that year.
Mr. Kleinpeter is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum which is one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members.
Mr. Kleinpeter was recognized by the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 in 2012 and 2013. While many lawyers talk about taking big cases all the way to the finish line, we do it.
