Mark Kleiman is unprofessional and disrespectful to his clients. He took my case on a contingency basis. Upon doing so, Mark gave me the brunt of the work to do in filling out several extensive documents with detailed information, which was the foundation for the case. Upon completion Mark explained that he will review the documents and get started on the case. “Get started” consisted of his asking for a copy of my employment documents from my former employer. This was the extent of what Mark did. He would ignore my numerous calls, emails, and voice messages left in his office leaving my case unattended to. Mark never made any efforts to call me regarding the case. His legal assistant however continually reassured me that he was indeed working on my case. As several more months passed, I finally got Mark on the phone after many attempts of reaching him, and he apologized for not attending to my case because he had personal things to attend to. He admitted he never even looked at the case. He however promised that he would not take on another case or attend to another case before mine. He vowed that at the end of the month, he would have reviewed my case, have a document ready to send to my previous employer, or at that point give me the name of another attorney that he had spoken with that could take on my case and finally help me. This was two months ago. I never heard from Mark, nor would he return any of my many emails, phone calls, or voice messages.
After 6 months of being misled, manipulated, and disrespected as a client, I have decided to let others know to be careful of this attorney. My case now is by the wayside due to Mark’s lack of professionalism and promises to attend to my case. I am disappointed because I have put my faith in him to help me through an unfair circumstance and now I am left at square one.
