Made the whole process easy
Mr. Klepak made my divorce process very simple. He told me our plan of action, told me the cost of everything up front, and made constant contact with me along the way for any changes or just to update me. Would highly recommend.

Home deed
I added my wives name to a rental house we own . Gary took care of the property deed. And Gary got it all taken care of and I did not have to worry about a thing. Will use Gary for my future needs.

Probating Will
Mr. Gary Klepak helped us write our wills many years ago. My husband died on 2-5-2023 and Mr Klepak probated his will for me. He and his wife did an excellent job! I recommend him to any one needing an attorney.

Professional and friendly
Working the Attorney Klepak's office was a real pleasure from start to finish. Both him and his wife are both very friendly yet professional. Everything was done quickly and they made the process of setting up mine and my wife's wills and other documents very easy. If you are in need of someone who gets the job done right at a fair price then this is the office for you. I will definitely be recommending this practice to anyone who has a need.

Probate
The past few years have been extremely emotional for me in losing both of my parents and my brother. Understanding that my parents did not have a living will, I needed to seek out an attorney for assistance with probate. I am so fortunate that I came across Mr. Klepak information passing by his office in Columbus, Ga. His team is very nice and professional, provided guidance and assisted me through the entire process at an affordable price. I will recommend and refer all my family members and friends in need of his assistance. Thank you so much for your help. Larry

Review of Attorney, Gary Klepak
After retaining the services of the Klepak firm, they took great care in completing what we needed. Like most people that did not have a clue what to do we wisely followed what the attorney suggested. They took great care in leading step by step and completing our needs.

Awesome Service
Case: One year Spousal Support - Loss of Spouse Upon initial contact with Mr. Klepak's office, I received professional, courteous service. My mind was quickly put at ease when Mr. Klepak assessed my case and told me exactly needed to be done, what I needed to submit and approximately how long it should take to resolve the case. He didn't just accept what I said I wanted to be done, but told me exactly what needed to be done to best benefit me and my family. Once I submitted everything he requested, my job was done; he and his staff took it from there. My case is complete in the manner he said it would be. I'm so happy I chose Mr. Klepak's office, as doing so lifted a huge burden off my shoulders during an already highly stressful time. A stella performance from Attorney Gary Klepak and staff from the beginning to the end.
