SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – On May 1, 1983, the firm that became Klinedinst PC opened its doors in San Diego for the very first time. John D. Klinedinst, an East Coast native who had moved to San Diego after law school, opened his solo office inside 1241 State Street. It quickly grew to include a small group of lawyers, working on cases involving personal injury, construction liability, and insurance defense. Within a short time, the firm outgrew its space, relocating to 444 W C Street, and then again to 501 W Broadway, where Klinedinst’s San Diego office stands today.

Today, the firm has five offices, with over 80 lawyers serving the legal needs of clients in five states across the Western United States. It is also an active member of USLAW NETWORK and Lawyers Associated Worldwide, effectively expanding the scope of legal service across the globe.

Klinedinst has always believed in providing high-quality and value-oriented legal services. This approach to client service has been consistent from day one, enabling the firm and its members to enjoy extraordinary growth and success in an extremely competitive environment. “We are so proud to be in our fortieth year of practice,” said Heather L. Rosing, CEO and President of Klinedinst. “There are very few companies or law firms that have this amazing history, with solid and continuous success throughout the decades.”

Klinedinst has steadily expanded the services it offers clients, with clients ranging from local start-up companies to national Fortune 50 companies. The firm expanded to also represent clients in matters involving appellate, banking, bankruptcy, business litigation, estate and trust litigation, corporate, employment and labor, environmental, intellectual property, products liability, professional liability defense, real estate and construction, restaurants and hospitality, securities, M&A, and business transactions.

Klinedinst attorneys believe that a clear understanding of each client’s business goals is crucial to achieving the best possible outcome for any legal matter. All of the attorneys at Klinedinst actively participate in the management and direction of the firm, and work collaboratively in achieving successful outcomes for clients.

Over the past forty years, the firm has become known for superior legal representation while maintaining a reputation for ethical practices, professional integrity, and civility. We are so incredibly thankful for our team members, both past and present, who have made this achievement possible, and all the wonderful partners and clients who have believed in Klinedinst and its mission of delivering excellence in legal service. “A law firm is entirely defined by the people within the firm,” added Rosing. “We thank each and every one of you for being a part of our history and a part of our very bright future.”
