Joel Halvorsen is a partner and founder of Halvorsen Klote.

Joel Halvorsen and his partner Greg Klote founded the Halvorsen Klote law firm on the principle that injured people and their families should have access to the same quality legal representation as large insurance companies.

That’s why at Halvorsen Klote, your initial consultation and case evaluation is always free, and you never pay a penny for anything unless we are able to obtain financial compensation for you. No matter how devastating the accident, Joel prides himself on giving each client and family the personal attention they deserve.

Joel is a proven fighter for injury victims and has been honored and recognized for his work in helping his clients receive the compensation they deserve. In 2018, 2019, and 2020 Joel was named a Super Lawyer Rising Star, an honor awarded to no more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in Missouri. Joel has also been selected by the National Trial Lawyers as one of the top 40 trial attorneys under the age of 40 in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020. In 2019, Joel was selected by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys as a nationally ranked top 10 personal injury attorney under the age of 40. In 2020, Joel was selected and awarded as one of America's Top 100 High Stakes Litigators®. He has been awarded a perfect 10.0 score by Avvo.com; a national consumer rating service for attorneys and was recognized with the “Client Choice Award” by Avvo, based on feedback from former clients.

Joel has helped his clients recover millions of dollars in compensation for their injuries. Joel has a passion for representing individuals and does not shy away from taking on large national corporations or insurance carriers. Prior to founding Halvorsen Klote, Joel gained valuable experience working for a national defense firm where he saw first-hand how corporate defendants evaluate cases and utilize their immense resources to deny just compensation to victims of their corporate negligence and wrongdoing. Utilizing that knowledge, Joel has represented individuals and families from all walks of life and is committed to helping people obtain the justice and compensation that they deserve.
