Jose Klein

Tenacious. Smart. Compassionate. A Harvard Law School graduate, Jose Klein specializes in client-focused representation in employment law and civil rights matters in Oregon and Washington. Achieving justice and fairness for his clients is his mission. Getting there requires understanding the unique needs and concerns of the individuals and small businesses who hire him. It also requires the courage to fight for what is right.

Prior to co-founding Klein Munsinger, Jose gained skills and insights as a litigator and labor negotiator at top local and national employment and labor law firms. He spent nearly a decade developing inside knowledge about how employers and employers’ attorneys approach workplace disputes. Now running his own shop, Jose applies those insights to vindicate the rights of victims of harassment, discrimination and retaliation at work. Jose represents victims of discrimination based on race, gender, sexual orientation, disability and other protected classifications. He litigates wage and hour claims, violations of protected leave laws, and breach of contract cases.

After graduating from law school, Jose clerked for Justice Martha Walters on the Oregon Supreme Court. As an honors attorney at the Oregon Department of Justice he handled termination of parental rights cases. He has experience with jury and bench trials and arbitrations. In each instance, Jose brings wits, integrity and insight to the challenge.

Honestly, look no further. In my opinion, there is no better employment and civil rights attorney in Oregon or Washington. He represented me skillfully, and I would recommend Jose Klein, Esq. with zero hesitation. He’s super smart and will get you to the finish line with his ability to think about things as a whole.


I wanted an attorney who would fight for me, and someone who I could trust had my best intentions at heart. Jose and his team were diligent, meticulous, and incredibly talented when it came to handling and planning a strategy for my case.


Jose was fantastic to work with. He was quick to respond and get things done, easy to interact with and he achieved the result I was looking for in a very short time period.
