About Me

Excellent Legal Counsel

Andrew M. Klaas is a true litigator. He believes in the simple premise of providing clients with high-quality legal services and individualized attention. Clients hire attorneys to zealously advocate on their behalf, Andrew understands that well.


Andrew concentrates his practice in litigation, civil disputes, personal injury, workplace accidents, employment disputes, medical malpractice, catastrophic injury, general litigation, and estate planning. His experience has taught him to represent on behalf of his clients while recognize their needs for the present and future.


Andrew also focuses on domestic disputes. After his time with Barrington Police Department and practicing law for the Domestic Violence Clinic under Illinois Supreme Court Rule 711, he possesses a unique understanding of his clients personal and psychological needs. Andrew has enjoyed giving back to his community by volunteering in Willow Creek’s Awana program and accepting a board member position with the KlaasKids Foundation to help continue the fight against child abuse.
