Jack Klausner

 

Jack D. Klausner

For more than 40 years before his 2016 retirement, Jack Klausner built a diversified practice in commercial litigation matters, real estate transactions, employment-related disputes, contract disputes, and general family matters. He represented clients at both the trial and appellate levels, and had significant experience appearing before the Arizona Court of Appeals, the Arizona Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals of the Ninth Circuit.

Jack served as a judge pro tempore with both the Arizona Court of Appeals (1992) and the Maricopa County Superior Court from 1991 - 2005.

He received his B.S. degree in 1967 from Miami University (Ohio) and his law degree from the University of Florida in 1969. After time in the military, Jack was admitted to practice in the State of New York in 1971, where he practiced until 1975, and he was admitted to practice in Arizona in 1975.
