Highly Recommend
I hired Joanne as my legal counsel for my divorce. Despite my shortcomings, her representation of me was nothing short of professional. She had the misfortune of having to deal with my ex's lying, disorganized unethical legal counsel, yet she continued to remain professional and fought for me. Her communication skills and her response time are excellent. Joanne's fees/rates are more than fair and she allowed for flexible installments of payments. I would highly recommend her. Sally, her assistant, is very professional as well. She was very supportive during the rough times.

An excellent attorney
Joanne has represented me and protected my interests in family court matters of marital property distribution and a child custody matter in which my wife proposed to relocate with my twin boys. From the moment I initially consulted with Joanne, her knowledge of and experience with family law matters in Montgomery County Pennsylvania were clearly evident. She is a consummate professional who anticipates and is prepared for all possible outcomes. In my profession I deal with attorneys regularly. When I requested a referral for a divorce attorney in Montgomery County from the lawyers I most respect, Joanne is who I was pointed to. After seeing her work first hand I understand why.

Knowledgeable in all areas of Divorce/Custody
Joanne has been my lawyer for over 5 years. I've been very satisfied with her service. She has effectively walked me through the divorce process within the Montgomery County court system. I appreciate her knowledge of the Masters and Judges and she could always give me an idea of what to expect before heading into court. If you desire to stay out of court she also can help you along that path. She replies promptly and on several "emergency occasions" she replied to me after working hours. I highly recommend Joanne!

The very best!!!
In 2012, I hired Joanne Kleiner to represent me in a custody matter. Immediately, she began to work diligently on my case. She listened carefully, and advised me accordingly. Joanne’s service went “above and beyond” any of my expectations. In fact, at one point, when an emergency court order was urgently needed, she personally got in her car, and delivered it. At the time, I thought this was unbelievable dedication. In the following years, I learned that this is Joanne’s normal modus operandi. When she represents a client, she gives it her all. My case was difficult and protracted, even going to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. At every turn, Joanne’s counsel was “spot on”! I’ve learned to rely on her judgement in the area of family law, and in life, in general. Joanne has represented me for over three years now. My sons and I have only benefitted from her representation. Joanne’s rates are very fair. Moreover, on numerous occasions, she has helped me in dozens of ways, without charging me a penny. Communication is one of the most crucial aspects of custody and child support litigation. In those times that I needed her most, she was always easily accessible. When I call, she answers immediately. Even when busy or out of her office, she returns calls in minutes or hours. Often, she calls on her own, to give me news and updates. Having been in business for several decades, I’ve had contact with many attorneys. I have never been more satisfied with any, as I have been with Joanne. Not only is she an absolutely top-notch lawyer, but also a true and sincere human being. I am fortunate to have Joanne Kleiner as my attorney, and more so, I like to think of her as my friend.

She tried to keep us on track despite very contentious circumstances. Her knowledge in custody cases helped us hang on, and her final advice in settlement brought a relatively quiet long term solution.
