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.

Friendly, timely and professional
I had gotten myself involved with someone who I thought loved me, but turned out to be untrue. But Klepak Law Office helped get get me out of it really fast. I truly thank them so much. I definitely recommend them when it comes to divorces. Thanks again!

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.

Divorce
Handle my divorce in a professional and timely manner. We did everything thru, phone conversation and email. Also, the price of divorce was reasonable. His firm made a uncomfortable situation, very comfortable. Great lawyer, who was referred by a close friend

A Professional Estate Attorney
Mr. Klepak oversaw a fairly complicated Will Probate for me that another attorney failed to complete due to inattentiveness and incompetence. I was initially wary because of the previous attorney’s severe and rank ineptitude. That previous attorney was not one worth getting up early for. But Mr. Klepak allayed those concerns quickly by getting things done. He was upfront and concise. What he could do and what he couldn’t. What you, the client, can do and what you can’t. He responded to every email and phone call. And whenever something new happened; he didn’t hesitate to explain or make one aware. This other attorney, you could call and email early as possible, but would either not respond or would force you to talk to snarky secretaries. Not so with Mr. Klepak. He, or his wife, will get to you with the real answer and will explain everything to you without being vague nor unnecessarily abstract. His timelines were accurate and his rates are quite fair for his services. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Klepak. My case was emotionally draining and I had already had such a negative experience with an earlier attorney , but Mr. Klepak certainly worked hard, made no excuses, and was never unreachable. And he got results.

Review of Mr. Klepak
Mr.Klepak and staff handled my mom’s probate of her estate. From the very first call they we’re always very nice and helpful. They would always answer any questions I had even after everything was settled. They helped make the most difficult thing I had to do so much easier and I am forever grateful for their help

Amazing Lawyer
I hired Mr. Klepak to complete a name change for me. He was absolutely outstanding. Him and his staff were always kind and made sure I felt comfortable contacting them with any questions that I had. The process went so smoothly, which I'm grateful to him for. I would highly recommend this lawyer.

Caring attorney
I went to Gary Klepak to handle a personal matter for me. Mr. Klepak and his staff treated me as a person, not just another case to collect a fee for services provided. I was kept informed during each step of the process. I will highly recommend him to anyone needing his service.

Great Person and Lawyer
Mr. Klepak is outstanding! His friendly but professional way he handled each case for me was very impressive! When I was at my low's point in my life by losing my Husband, Mr. Klepak and his wonderful wife Cindy who also works in the Office made it almost seamless for me to go thru probate. I have had Mr Klepak since handle my name change and my Last Will & Testament. I would recommend him to anyone who was in need of a good Lawyer and at a very reasonable price.

Outstanding!
Mr. Klepak is outstanding! His friendly but professional way he handled our cases was very impressive! We explained our cases, he promptly and clearly explained our options. We appreciated his quick responses to messages either by phone or email. We would highly recommend our lawyer to anyone and I assure you, if he can't handle your case, he will definitely refer you to someone. We had a situation that involved Louisiana law and he put us in contact with a Louisiana attorney. As anyone knows, LA laws weird!! Any questions, feel free to contact us.

Excellant Service
After shopping around for different rates and services, I found Mr Gary Klepak's rates were better than any other attorney contacted. To add to this was his impressive service. He and his office staff always took the time to fully explain things to me about services provided. I have used them on several occasions such as Chapter 7 Bankruptcy,Probate issues, as well as Power of Attorney for the Elderly and more. Due to their Stellar service, I highly recommend their services to my family and friends.
