This week on the podcast Jim and Tyson chat with Curtis Kleem. After 17 years (13 years as a partner) at a respected small town firm, Curtis went out on his own in June, 2018. He continues to work in the same town, doing similar work (Adoptions, Family Law, and Personal Injury). He has built a busy solo practice which uses technology to assist with keeping all the plates spinning at once. He is married and has two adult daughters, two (almost adult) sons and the best looking grandson a man could hope for.
