I had a terrible experience with Achsa. If you need an attorney who is there for you, will be attentive, and communicate she is not for you. She reels you in by a consult, and a retainer that is lower than most other attorneys, but you blow through that before anything ever gets done and then she needs more money. Every time i would call the office, she is not there, on vacation, with another client, or the secretary covered for her saying shes not available. My emergencies and concerns were not important to her, she wuld be short with me and never return my calls or emails. My hearings would be continued constantly which means more money.If the hearings were put off for another month or two thats a few more billing cycles that she bills for and nothings being done. Shes a snake. The day before my final hearing she called me to prepare, she prepared for my final hearing the day before. She was not there for me when I needed her and i thought that what im paying her for. My kids and my entire family were in between this custody not just my ex and myself. I think she is selfish and arrogant and aloof. she is a waste of money and only has a law degree for her status
I had never needed an attorney for anything until I suddenly needed to battle for custody of my daughter. I did not know where to go for help but was referred to Achsa by a happy client of hers so I crossed my fingers and called her. It turned out to be an excellent decision. From the beginning, she made me feel at ease and informed as to how things would be handled and what to expect. Never did she make me feel like a layman. Everything was laid out in a way that made me feel in control. Not only did she make me feel comfortable with the process but I was satisfied with the outcome of the legal proceedings. She fought hard for me and my daughter! I will recommend Achsa to anybody in need of a "family lawyer".
Last year, in a state of extreme emotional turmoil, I separated from my husband of over thirty years. Although I had never been a proponent of divorce, I felt that in my situation it was the only way I could avoid financial ruin. I sought out Klug Law Offices at the recommendation of another prominent attorney, who assured me that Achsa Klug was the person I needed. Achsa’s clear understanding of the law, her authoritative courtroom style, and her warm heart seemed paradoxical—I had figured a good lawyer would be all business and no heart! Was I wrong! Achsa’s self-confidence, legal brain, and compassion all blended-- to provide me constant assurance that she had my back! Klug Law Offices helped me through one of life’s most difficult experiences with grace and dignity, and I am forever grateful! . . . Janet
I cannot say enough about Achsa Klug. She was hired very last minute for my custody/ child support case. Not only was my case tedious and difficult to sort out, the opposing lawyer made things much more difficult than they had to be . Achsa was professional, accurate, punctual and to the point. She was good at telling me the truth about what was reasonable and what the different outcomes may be so that I was able to make informed choices. Even though I had many many questions, she made the time to address each one fully. I also appreciated that while she was very personable and kind to me and my family, she kept herself non emotional about my case, therefore teaching me to remain calm and maintain a strong powerful sense of self. With her dynamic professional character, speed, incredible accuracy and ability to keep up.. all while not letting anything slip during our trial, I felt empowered with her watching over me in the court room. I truly felt that all of the things that make it hard for a common person to work with/ or understand law/ a lawyer were addressed and taken care of by Achsa. She and her paralegal assistant worked hard for me in and out of the court room, and for that I am so grateful!
This was my first experience working with a lawyer, it couldn't have been better. I expected our appointments to be stiff, awkward and nerve wracking. It was the exact opposite. Great experience working with Ascha. She was amazing handling our case-responded promply, kept us informed on our status and walked us throgh step by step. Our case wasn't really common. So she took the time to find out exactly what we had to do. She didn't pretend to know, she was honest. My husband and I had met with a couple other lawyers who were boring, know-it-alls. One lawyer even charged us after the first visit to do research. His "research" came back with nothing useful. His letter stating his "findings" had more questions than we originally started with. No answers. He wanted more money to google our situation another 10 minutes. No way. Some lawyers may act like they know all the answers when they really dont. They just run you in circles. Longer it takes, the more cash you put in there pocket. Ascha was real with us. We never had to ask her to do something, she took it apon herself to go above and beyond. Could not have asked for anyone better. Very knowledgeable, personable, just down-to-earth. When we were in court, she played trains with our 3 year old while we spoke with the judge. Come on, need i say more?
Through-out my child support case (which reared its ugly head 6 years after my divorce was final) I felt completely confident that I had obtained the best attorney to represent me. Atty. Achsa Klug always returned my calls and answered my emails. There were times when I would begin to respond emotionally to something the other party would demand or contest. Rather than dismiss my input as worthless or unwarranted, Atty. Klug would allow me to "vent" or make suggestions for a reply. When I was done, she would then make suggestions of her own based on sound legal principles and with a calm demeanor. I felt as though she was really listening for valid points that I might have before making her comments and discussing with me what she thought was the best course of action. She never made false promises or assurances. I was always consulted before any action was taken, and we discussed the possible "pros and cons" of our intended actions. All of her responses, both to me and the opposing party, were always calm and completely lacking in artificial or deliberate drama. The out-come was fair to all involved, which was all I had wanted, but I firmly believe would not have been the case were it not for her participation. I recommend Achsa Klug without reservation to anyone who wants to be represented by an attorney who treats her clients as more than just "billable time", who is smart, personable and well versed in the law and savvy to the ways of the courts - the consummate professional. Thank you again Achsa.
Not all divorces are or should be ugly. Especially if kid are involved. If you want to escalate drama then she's for you. If you want to move forward as amicable as possible then find someone else. She had me talked into a direction I ethically knew was a road I should never travel. 1yr after divorce was made final I'm STILL having consequences. Did I mention the "strategy" she convinced me was in my best interest long term was rejected by the judge so was for nothing. Its my opinion she lacks life experiences and is too hot to feed her own greed to listen & advise and not pout if you won't go for the woman who birthed your 3 children's throat. I regret obtaining her. When your hurt and anger fades you will too
A divorce is difficult for any person to go through. But the moment I walked through Achsa's doors and sat down with her to discuss my situation, I knew there was no one out there that would be a better fit for me. And was I ever right! Achsa fought hard for my needs. She understood where I was coming from and went to any measure to get what I deserved. Achsa was always readily accessible for a phone conversation, email response or a quick office pop in. Achsa will fight for you and not take no for an answer. I can honestly say, Achsa Klug is one of a kind and it would be a nonsensical idea not to seek her advice.
