He listened and provided terrific direction
Val took the time to hear about my situation and offered a great solution to help my case. I began the conversation with a sense of hopelessness and ended the conversation knowing that something could be done. I would look forward to working with Val if for some reason things don't work out the way I hope.

Confident and determined to help
Val was excellent following up and providing honest feedback. I have approached several attorneys to discuss my case and Val calmed my nerves with an understanding of how to navigate the process and a strong desire to help.

Great divorce lawyer that gets things done.
I hired Val and his firm to represent me in a very complicated divorce case. My wife was being unreasonable and I had a prior attorney who just wanted to litigate the case until the cows came home without regard for my finances. Val helped me reach a settlement and saved me a ton of time and money. Highly recommend this lawyer if you want to get through divorce quickly and efficiently.

Excellent attorney: comprehensive service
I retained Mr. Kleyman to represent me for a minor criminal violation, and was incredibly impressed with the attentiveness and support he showed throughout the entire process. Not only did Mr. Kleyman help gain me a favorable resolution, he treated me with the utmost professionalism and respect I was hoping for. I highly recommend Mr. Kleyman to anyone contemplating hiring an attorney for a criminal matter.
