Excellent, very helpful. Always had an answer for any questions. Steve's assistant, Dawn, was very helpful, too. Would definitely recommend him to others.

Steve Klesner understands that legal proceedings can be intimidating, if not downright scary. I was both intimidated and afraid, as I had no training in this field.
From his calm, friendly manner to his constant willingness to explain every aspect of my case to my satisfaction, Mr. Klesner's patient, yet direct approach consistently communicated tremendous training and knowledge to me, as well as (and perhaps more importantly) to all other parties involved in my case.
He and his staff are responsive and thorough. I communicated with him via phone, fax, email, and in person. All calls were handled in person and all messages were returned immediately. Rates were quoted up front, and he always made time for me when I had questions. He was always on time. I have never met a more knowledgeable lawyer.
Most importantly, because of his very thorough, yet efficient data-collection process, my case was over in no time, the process was completely painless, and I learned a ton of valuable information that will help me in moving forward with my life. Steve walked me though the entire process and I got to keep my house, my cars, and my sanity. I am now much more organized, and much better prepared to handle my financial future.
I am glad Steve Klesner was my first call when I needed legal help, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs assistance.

Mr. Klesner was competent but communication is not his strong suit. Once you have been to court you might as well forget trying to get questions answered. We have emailed and called with no response. Guess once they have your money your importance is done.

Steven G. Klesner was my attorney for my recent bankruptcy. In addition, he advised me on an earlier issue involving a creditor. Prior to my hiring Steve and proceeding with filing bankruptcy, he advised me about the meaning of this filing for my life. I felt that he offered sincere objective advice in a time of great turmoil. Because of his assistance, I will be better to handle my financial issues in the future. While bankruptcy is not something anyone wishes to have to do, when faced with job loss or other devastating life events, it is an important option for us to consider. Steve took the time that I needed to consider such a step. HIs legal work for the filing was excellent and he kept me informed throughout the process about what I needed to do next or what to expect. He is not only an excellent attorney he is compassionate and understanding but retains his objectivity in order to truly be of service during difficult times. I felt I truly had an advocate to rely on throughout this process.

Mr. Klesner was able to assist me in successfully & efficiently filing an international bankruptcy. I had lived in the Caribbean, Iowa, Africa, & Wisconsin for the time in question. Mr. Klesner was able to cohesively work through all the details while I was in Africa & Wisconsin. I am an Iowa Farmboy at heart, having been born / raised in central Iowa. He & I also share both Central College & the University of Iowa as our alma maters. Use Steve & you will be happy.

Filing Chapter 11 was not an easy decision but in the end was my only option. Steve was personalble, considerate of my feelings, and answered my questions. It helped take the fear\ and guilt out of filing bankrupcy. His assitant was always very nice and usually available if Steve wasn't so you really have a team helping you.
