Lisa Kleinberg knows her family law. She was very knowledgeabel with alimony and child support. Lisa ALWAYS returned my calls in a timely manner, maybe not that day but the following day, as she does have other clients.
Lisa was focused on making sure that my kids and I got what was rightfully ours. I had never been through a divorce before (married over 20+ years) nor would I wish this on anyone. Lisa was very supportive in helping me understand what all the legal terminology meant.
Lisa took on my case knowing that I was in Hillsborough County and that it would be at least an hour drive to the court house and most likely a couple of trips until the case was over. She never was late and was always in communication with me on her way there letting me know where to meet her so we could talk before going into the court room.
Every time I would call her office knew who I was and was always pleasant to speak with. Not only did I have the office phone I also had Lisa’s personal cell number.
Lisa goes into the court room with her documents in prepared and in a file that is organized. She is a class act when it comes to representing.
If I ever need an attorney again she will be my first choice. I hoping I never have to but not because of her.
Lisa, L’tea and Angie you all are amazing and helped me through one of the hardest times of my life!
PLEASE! Spend your money elsewhere. Lisa can not be bothered to return messages or emails... I placed more than 32 phone calls to her office during my case with little return contact. Luckily, her assistant knows how to use a phone occasionally. Regarding my divorce; I found GROSS errors in form specific data, and child support payment calculations appeared to be from a generic template and she forgot to change all the blanks from her last case!!! Emails seem to disappear and are scarcely returned or acknowledged. Lisa FAILED to file NUMEROUS papers required by the Manatee County court system to establish my child support order. After a weeks of calling and persisting that she follow up, the only answers Lisa had were the "it's not my fault" garbage answers. I finally had to get my own case worker and file the paperwork MYSELF after Lisa fell of the face of the earth following my final hearing.
Lisa was a HOUR LATE to my mediation because (and I quote) "My feet were killing me so I had to run home and change my shoes) I WAS SPEECHLESS! REALLY?!?!? It should have been no surprise then that she was also 30 minutes late to my final hearing, where she also "forgot" my paperwork that had to be turned in!
I'm done writing this review because it's just aggravating me again to no end. In closing, Please Please PLEASE use another attorney. I got screwed, no need for you to get screwed too.
I paid Lisa Kleinberg a large amount of money which I thought would get the job done. Boy was I wrong. She obviously could smell my desperation. Where do I start with this lawyer? First of all Lisa Kleinberg does not do her job. The only person I dealt with at Lisa Kleinberg's office that ever even attempted to work on my case was her secretary. She would call the opposing parties attorney, answer my questions etc.. I would call for a week straight and leave messages without 1 return call. When I did actually talk to Lisa Kleinberg she would act like I was wasting her time. I got nothing but total disrespect from this attorney. When I told her I didn't think she was doing her job finally, she acted as if I was crazy and that I was overreacting. Lisa Kleinberg left me no other choice but to cut my losses so I could try and find a decent lawyer. I will never recommend Lisa Kleinberg to anyone for any reason whatsoever. I wouldn't let her represent me if she offered to do it for free.
