WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Jul 14, 2011) - Renowned plaintiffs' trial and litigation firm, Klores Perry Mitchell, P.C. (formerly Bruce J. Klores & Associates), announced today that former Washington, D.C., Mayor Adrian M. Fenty has joined the firm as Special Counsel. Fenty, who served as the fifth Mayor of the District of Columbia, will draw on his vast knowledge, experience and trusted relationships to contribute to the continued expansion of the firm and its practice areas.

"We are honored to have Mayor Fenty join us," noted Bruce J. Klores, founding partner of Klores Perry Mitchell. "His successful mayoral 'reformer approach' used to streamline the D.C. government and make it more responsive to residents will be a great asset to the firm. This innovative approach to law, combined with his strategic thinking and sound business judgment, will compliment the firm's focus on efficiency and attention to clients' needs."

As a law firm nationally known for its medical malpractice work, KPM represents individuals and businesses as plaintiffs on a contingent-fee basis in high-stakes litigation. The firm believes that businesses and individuals are best served by contingency-fee agreements because it ensures the client's and its lawyer's interests are aligned, and rewards efficiency and success.

"KPM's commitment to advocating on behalf of their clients, combined with their emphasis on winning -- not billing -- was of great interest to me," explained Fenty. "The firm is also dedicated to values I believe are extremely important -- fostering a high quality of life for its employees and for those who live in the Washington, D.C. area."

A visionary with an intense focus on reform, Fenty became a recognized national leader in urban education reform, public safety, public housing, city revitalization, healthcare and increased tourism. Fenty's Housing First program, which became a national model, provided permanent, affordable housing for thousands of District residents. Since leaving office, he has provided strategic advice and business development solutions to an array of constituencies.

Klores Perry Mitchell has provided innovative plaintiffs' counsel and winning trial & litigation strategies on behalf of its clients for 30+ years. KPM, which uses contingency-fee agreements, has earned a reputation for its compassionate approach. Its representation of victims of medical negligence and other catastrophic injuries has led to verdicts and settlements totaling over $250 million. KPM also prosecutes high-stakes commercial claims arising out of a wide-variety of business transactions/contracts. www.klores.com.
