    • I do not recommend Gerald Klein.
    • I hired Gerald more than 3 years ago.
    • Gerald handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Mr. Klein is very concerned about the well being of his clients' kids, which is admirable. If parents have already decided to divorce, the best thing for the kids is to get the proceedings wrapped up quickly. And often that takes an aggressive attorney who still has the eye of the tiger and won’t let things drag on for months and months by being too passive and apathetic. Mr. Klein would like both parties to walk away happy, but when the other party is unreasonable, that desire becomes impossible. I had hoped to find an advocate with zeal, but after 30+ years in law, Mr. Klein appeared tired. He seemed to forget who had retained him in my case and he often behaved as though my ex and I had hired him jointly to mediate a settlement. It appeared Mr. Klein was less concerned about voicing his clients’ position to the court and more concerned about prostrating himself before the man in the black robe. If peace, love, and understanding, with a generous helping of daisies, is what you want from your legal representative and voice before the judge, I recommend Mr. Klein. If you want someone who always helps you see how your ex feels and what his or her needs are, then by all means, hire Mr. Klein. But if you want an attorney with zeal, someone who will fight as hard as your ex’s attorney, then find someone else.
