STARTING OVER AT 72
Divorce Case – it took my now ex-wife with the help of her son and his family just 90 minutes to walk out on me after 39 years of marriage. When asked “Why?” Her response was, “You don’t love me ... I’m sorry." I said, “But I do love you.” My words meant nothing. I worked hard as a teacher to pay the bills. She did not have to work, and could sleep until almost noontime, then she would go to the pool. Her help in the house was buying the weekly groceries. A few days later, after she left, I got served with divorce papers. The cost to start the divorce process - $Thousand$, and I really didn't have any money, so I put it all on a credit card. Seven months later during a two-hour allotted time for negotiations I became speechless because of what was being asked of me by the opposing counsel and ex-wife to be as if I was a Hollywood star and so nothing was accomplished. Then, by this time what dawned on me was that it seemed as if anything my ex-wife’s attorney wanted, my attorney would agree to it – crazy. By this time my family was screaming at me to get a second opinion. At last, it took an outsider (Zee) who said after listening to me go on a rant about what was happening, “Look, I’m not your friend, I’m not family, we just do business together, but I need you to promise me that when we hang up you will call another lawyer and get a second opinion. I have been all through this myself, and so do it! Pay whatever it will cost but promise me you will do it.” So, I did it. I called and talked with Eric Klein and after just a couple of minutes, I had this “gut-feeling” that this was the law firm that should be representing me. A second meeting was scheduled, and it was at this time I met an extraordinary attorney Mariajose Rivera (Maria) – a person I honestly had a vision about even before the first mediation took place. A special professional who would save me from all this divorce craziness. Someone who truly understood family law and more importantly was the first and only one who fully understood what I not only wanted as an outcome, but what was right. Again, when I first saw Maria, I knew she was the person who I had a prior vision of helping me and felt quickly at peace. She was always professional and gave quick and attentive responses to all my communications. There is no question because of the entire Klein Law Group, and especially Maria, I was able to start my life over again and furthermore only needing to completely focus financially on myself. I believe there is a God who makes living angels – one of them is Maria. Thank you for being alive and working at the same time as me … what are the odds. Finally, I can say with trust and faith that it was a great experience having attorney Maria in my corner filled with confidence. I was taken care of like I was family.

Professional, Easy to Communicate, Thorough
Eric Klein is easy to find, he answers calls, emails, inquiries quickly. He got me the results I wanted in real estate and other situation-s. Eric is a consummate professional and most definitely FIGHTS FOR YOU. When you hire him, you will see the difference between his laser-focused service as compared to other attorneys. He is actually 'too fair' sometimes when it comes to his pricing. I recommend him for all of his specialty categories of law. You will not be disappointed with the results. Excellent, above-and-beyond service.

Thanks to Eric and Staff I am a proud HOME OWNER AGAIN!
I started the Chapter 7 process in Sept of 2015. I listened to Eric and his staff, papers were filed 9/2015 and then bankruptcy went through in December of 2015. I rebuilt my credit using suggestions from Eric. I could have bought a house a year ago but wanted to save some more money and get credit scores up even more. I just closed on my house, last week of September 2020. I got a mortgage with only 5% down with an interest rate of 2.99%! Thanks, Eric and his staff. Trust their process!

Great law firm
The Klein Law Firm was excellent in the handling of my case. The attorney that I dealt with most was Kunal Mirchandani. He was absolutely fantastic in every way.

Highly recommend
I used this law firm a few years back and they were so supportive and kind. Not only does Mr. Klein meet with you personally but he actually listens so you receive the best attorney from the practice to suit your needs. My boyfriend needed legal advice just recently and I referred him to the Klein Group and I was impressed a second time. Mr Klein personally met with us and was just as kind as he was at my last meeting years ago. This is a great Group who actually cares about getting you the best help you need. I am an actual client and would highly recommend this group for any law issues you need resolved.

Best Attorney in South Florida!
I have consulted with Eric on several legal issues. During my consultation, Eric gave me personalized attention and never made me feel rushed. He listened, asked questions, educated me and offered a solution. I felt like Eric was on my side and that I could trust him to guide me in stressful situations. If I need to hire an attorney, Eric is it, without a doubt in my mind.

First Time Home Buyer
I purchased my first home last fall and Klein Law Group handled my closing. As a first time home buyer I was overwhelmed and found much of the process stressful and confusing. Everyone at Klein Law Group was very patient with me as I navigated my way through the process. Katie and Damian answered all of my questions and they never made me feel like a burden. They understood my needs as a client but also treated me as a human being. They kept me educated about the process which made me feel calm and confident. I felt that they were on my team and they went the extra mile for me. By the time we got to closing I felt like I was among friends. Klein Law Group won't make you feel like you're just another closing, they care. If you are looking for a professional, caring and reliable group to handle your closing then Klein Law Group is the place for you.

Great Divorce Attorney
Eric and his team provided me and my family with fast, expert legal services with a family touch. Divorce is a major life altering event, but Eric helped guide me through the process with comfort and ease.
Posted by Holly | October 3, 2013
I only wish he would move back to Massachusetts.
Eric has always been available or called me back in a very reasonable amount of time. He is always willing to explain anything and everything so that I understand it all. He is always patient with my questions. He schedules meetings for my convenience. He listens to and retains what I have to say. I couldn't say enough good things about Eric. He handled an auto accident for me and he handled all my estate planning. During the auto accident case, he always kept me apprised of the situation. He gave me all the information he had. He made recommendations as to whether I should accept the settlement being offered but he also didn't push me in any direction but allowed me to make my own decisions. With my estate planning he explained everything to ensure I knew what I was actually putting in place for myself should I not be able to make decisions. My only complaint would be that he left the state I live in so I can no longer use him as my lawyer.

THE PROBLEM SOLVER
Eric Klein was and is my attorney. I have the highest regard for him and his team. When I first had a meeting with Eric , we discussed my problem and he made me feel comfortable by explaining the law and how he would represent me .. He is very professional and pays attention to what you have to say. I can't thank him enough and recommend him very highly. The outcome of my case was in my favor and for that I am very appreciative

Attentive and Dedicated
I have many friends that were giving me lawyer referrals, and quite frankly, was getting a little confused until someone mentioned Eric to me saying that he was a dedicated, sensitive and informed lawyer that would listen attentively, never keep you waiting and always returned calls promptly. I retained Eric on those merits and found all to be quite true. He handled every aspect of my case and I was never passed off to a secretary or paralegal. I would highly recommend Eric as he made a difference at a critical point in my life.

Recent Client
With the downturn in the economy my business revenues declined significantly. At the same time my family incurred a lot of medical bills that were not covered by insurance. As a result we maxed out our credit to cover the basics. Of course, the credit companies immediately lowered our credit limits and more than doubled our interest rates. This despite a perfect credit rating for over 30 years and still making on-time minimum payments. We engaged Eric Klein at the recommendation of a friend who had used him for bankruptcy matters. We found Eric to be knowledgeable, compassionate, patient and very responsive to our questions. He kept us sane during this trying time. Our case was handled professionally and expeditiously and the outcome was better than we had hoped for. I unconditionally recommend Eric Klein should you find yourself in the need for a bankruptcy attorney.

Tremendous!
Occasionally good people find themselves in bad trouble. I had just turned 53, I had a bad accident that put me out of commission for a long time, lost my job, for the first time in my life I couldn’t pay my bills. I couldn’t see anyway out of this mess. Eric helped me resolve my debt. I was able to keep my house with bankruptcy, and I got my life back on track. I was treated like a human being, And the results – Tremendous!
