Big-time LA lawyer is also an energy healer and exorcist (video)

Wall Street Journal video

ken-klee-wsj-grab.jpgKenneth Klee, one of the most respected bankruptcy lawyers in the U.S., is profiled in today's Wall Street Journal for his personal side practice. Klee, 64, was the court-appointed examiner in the Tribune bankruptcy that involved the LA Times and KTLA a few years ago. From the WSJ:

By day, Mr. Klee inhabits the world of high-stakes bankruptcy cases, charging clients such as Jefferson County, Ala., about $1,000 an hour for legal advice. At night, Mr. Klee holds energy healings in a small room of his elegant, one-story home in the leafy Brentwood section of Los Angeles.

Mr. Klee said he can talk to spirits, mend broken bodies and wounded souls and, if necessary, perform exorcisms. The suggested donation for a two-hour session is $300.

Alternative medicine and other New Age practices and philosophies have many followers in the corporate world, particularly in Southern California. But it is unusual to find a white-shoe lawyer like Mr. Klee who so publicly embraces his connections to the metaphysical.

"I am just a vessel," said Mr. Klee, sitting in his office on the top floor of a 39-story skyscraper with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. "I just bring through this energy.''
