Alan J. Kluger
Founding Member

"A trial lawyer should be the prism through which the judge and jurors come to see the facts."

  • Founding Member Alan Kluger is a powerhouse trial attorney who advocates for his clients at all stages of the litigation process. Alan 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 Alan’s tough, no-nonsense litigation tactics, and creative, out-of-the-box thinking is what they need for their own disputes. Alan’s 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, Alan 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.

    A devoted patron of the arts, Alan and his wife own a world-class encyclopedic collection of Contemporary Latin American art spanning from 1945 to the present.

    Over his many years of community service, Alan has been a Grand Founder of the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center, a trustee of the Miami Chamber of Commerce, a board member of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, a past president of Florida Hillel Council, and a former member of the Miami-Dade County Community Relations Board.
