Great Lawyer
I retained Michael Kleiman after my divorce was deemed ineligible for mediation. Naturally, I was devastated. Litigation, I was told, was my only option. I was fortunate to happen upon Michael Kleiman. From the start, Michael was calm and patient. He put me at ease right away. He explained every step of the process, so I always felt prepared and informed. He remembered every single detail, no matter how small. When necessary, which was often, he defended my case professionally and calmly. I felt like I never had to worry. Whatever advice he gave me, I accepted, even if it was hard. Looking back now, I realize his advice was always wise and thoughtful. He made an otherwise terrible process, manageable. I wholeheartedly recommend Michael Kleiman.

Excellent Service
Michael was professional, efficient and compassionate in guiding me through the divorce process. He explained things to me in layman’s terms so I had a clear understanding of all documents I signed and decisions I needed to make. He genuinely cares about his clients and I was fortunate to have him represent me.

Absolutely Recommend
I met Michael in the midst of a family crisis that was not related to completing the divorce process for which I hired him. Under my very difficult personal circumstances, I found him to be, first and foremost, extremely compassionate and understanding. His calm and patient approach was exactly what I needed during a tumultuous time, and he consistently enabled a somewhat contentious legal process to unfold as smoothly as possible. He was knowledgable, thorough, extremely trustworthy and responsive. I could absolutely count on him to have my best interests in mind at all times, allowing me to safely lean on him more than I would have anticipated. Under any circumstances I would highly recommend Michael. His expertise, demeanor, and genuine care for his clients make him one of the best I’ve met in his profession.

Wonderful lawyer
I hired Michael for my custody trial after using a lawyer that I did not feel comfortable with. I was very anxious about switching lawyers in the midst of the custody battle. Michael was a breath of fresh air. Honest, kind, compassionate about his job and KNOWLEDGABLE. Michael is hard working and dedicated. I truly felt like he understood my needs and concerns and worries. Michael made me feel heard and understood and helped me tell my story in court. It was a story that I never felt was heard until he joined me. If you are looking for an honest lawyer with a lot of knowledge and understanding of the process, I would highly recommend Michael Kleiman.
