Experienced and Effective!!!
Some of the attributes that I look for in an Attorney are as follows; Practical experience in the respective field that I need assistance in, high ethical/morale standards, diligent, effective and a great communicator. I am delighted to say that I found all of these attributes in Attorney Daniel Kleiner. Attorney Kleiner surpassed all of my expectations. Inasmuch, I would highly recommend Attorney Kleiner to my relatives, colleagues, friends and anyone else that needs proper legal representation. Attorney Kleiner recently assisted me in the settlement of a case via arbitration. When I initially met Attorney Kleiner, he diligently explained the entire legal process in detail. He answered all of my questions and responded to my numerous emails and phone calls in an expeditious manner. He fought tirelessly in order to reach our goal. The final results were favorable.

I was so grateful that I found Daniel Kleiner, who helped me navigate a complicated case with utmost professionalism, sophistication, and kindness. He made me feel extremely comfortable and prepared me for every step of the process. I was very happy with the successful result of my case, and with Dan’s expert handling of it, allowing me to move past my situation.

Very professional and kind service
Kleiner is very helpful and gives great attention to detail. Helped me so much during my accident, and made sure to keep in touch throughout the process, which is great as I really did not expect that. Made the process a lot less stressful as well. Would definitely recommend him to others in need of help.

The best accident lawyer I've ever had
Daniel Kleiner is never too busy for his clients which means when you reach out to him you will hear from him immediately. He's very good at what he does so you never have to worry. You're in good hands. He is also the quickest lawyer to settle for me while making sure that I get the most from my settlement. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a "real lawyer " who actually cares.

Do Not Read This! You will want to hire him and he may be less available for me ;)
I worked with Daniel after hospitalization from being hit by a car while on a bicycle. A friend suggested I contact Daniel, and found in him an attorney that I can trust. He has a gifted bedside manner that clarifies and helped me understand the differences between what I felt is "right" and what the law provides. This injury has altered my life, possibly permanently. So I sought other opinions. And found that not only was Daniel correct, he is highly respected within the profession. I will avail myself of his services again should the need arise.

Professional, caring and helpful!
I was injured in a fall and was very reluctant to bring a case as I'd never done so before and don't really believe in suing at the drop of a hat! But Mr Kleiner was very patient and put my initial reluctance to sue into perspective and was honest about possible outcomes.He was very supportive and helpful and the case was finally decided in my favor! I am very grateful for his support in this matter and do not hesitate to highly recommend him.

Friendly, hard working attorney
Dan Kleiner represented me and worked tirelessly on my case. His service was excellent. He is an attorney who actually cares and keeps his client informed about the progress being made. He aggressively pursued the negligent party and was excellent with communication to me about the issues. I would recommend him highly. He is an honest, compassionate attorney who works hard for you.

Very strong in court but compassionate with me.
Mr. Kleiner walked me through every step of the process. He was very understanding and knew the law. When I went with him to court, he made me feel at ease, but he was very tough on the other lawyer. I was glad he was on my side!
