Socorro attorney Don Klein dies
Don Klein, a longtime local attorney who was well-respected by his colleagues, recently passed away. “Don Klein clearly did not become an attorney to be a wealthy man, but to be a champion for the underdog,” Keith Valles, an attorney with the 7th Judicial District Attorney’s office, wrote in a personal statement. “We need more of that passion in our profession. He will be missed.”
Funeral arrangements were pending as of the time of this publication. Read a profile on Klein in Saturday’s El Defensor Chieftain.
