    Attorney Kevin Klein to Be Sworn in as State Bar President

    Encourages Volunteerism and Leadership Among Lawyer Colleagues

    Wisconsin Dells, WI – On Wednesday, June 13 at 5:00 p.m., Attorney Kevin G. Klein of Phillips will be sworn in as State Bar of Wisconsin President during the organization’s annual meeting on June 13 at the Chula Vista Resort in the Wisconsin Dells. Klein will serve a one-year term beginning July 1, 2012. He will succeed Attorney Jim Brennan of Milwaukee.

    Klein will encourage fellow attorneys to help shape the future of the legal profession through volunteering with organizations like the State Bar.

    “Leadership can take many forms. I encourage members to accept leadership roles at the local bar level, as well as at the State Bar level. And that can be done simply by active participation,” said Klein. “Leadership is about being decisive in a productive and positive way, so that things are accomplished through teamwork and consensus.”

    Klein is a 1981 University of Wisconsin Law School graduate who has been a sole practitioner serving clients in Price and neighboring counties. He has served in a variety of senior State Bar leadership roles, including positions on the Board of Governors and its Executive Committee. He is also the Butternut Village Attorney, president of the Price County Bar Association and is involved in other community groups, including the Phillips Chamber of Commerce Board, the Flambeau Hospital Foundation, and the Price County Women’s Health Alliance.
