Curtis represented us on our adoption. Curtis and his staff were great. Always kept us well informed about what we needed to do and how the processed worked. Our adoption went very smoothly and it was all because of Curtis. In my mind there is no better adoption attorney.

Solid Experienced Guidance
Needing family law is tough enough by itself and I needed guidance to navigate the waters through a multi-year experience. Curtis was great to work with. A very experienced no-nonsense straight forward attorney that I grew to trust. I certainly recommend.

Would hire again and again!
Mr. Kleem helped guide my sister and I through the process of pulling our youngest siblings out of a terrible home environment with our mother. He was always available to us when we needed him, and served as an incredibly calming presence in incredibly high-stress settings. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him. I'd hire him again and again... I just hope I don't have to!

What to say about Mr. Kleem? This lawyer was one of the best lawyer's my wife and I have hired. We needed him to help us with an adoption and he was right on top of the process to make this adoption go smoothly as possible. His work ethic was exceptional as he went the extra mile for us. I would definitely recommend him to any of our family and friends. In fact, we have already! Therefore if your looking for a great lawyer, he is the one to choose!

An exceptional lawyer and person!
I am so thankful my friends referred Curtis Kleem to me! I was seeking a Separate Maintenance and there was so much I didn't understand as well as the dealing with the grief of my 29 yr marriage ending. Curtis Kleem is a professional, intelligent, kind and compassionate person. He was patient with my many questions and was helpful in explaining the process and all that was involved. He was easy to reach. His phone calls were personally and promptly returned as well as his emails. I would definitely use his services again for any future legal issue and highly highly recommend him to others!

Endorse Curtis
Divorce and separation Attorney | Jun 09
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I recently completed a case with Curtis as the opposing counsel. Curtis was no pushover. He represented his client very very well. BUT Curtis was nice. He was not a jerk, as too many attorneys tend to be. Curtis follows the old model of the gentleman lawyer. I would gladly work with Curtis again, and I will refer business to him. Curtis Kleem is a good, professional fellow, and he worthy of serious consideration. If I needed a lawyer, I would want Curtis to represent me."
Family Attorney | Mar 05
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Curtis is an excellent lawyer that vigorously and zealously represents his clients. Super nice guy, but a bulldog in the courtroom"
