Posted by Jim
Upon my initial meeting with Sarasota and Manatee County Florida Family Law Divorce attorney Lisa Kleinberg and her para-legal assistant Ltea Humphrey in March 2014, I was impressed with Lisa's professional knowledge and personal skills. Lisa exhibited the solid Mid-West Illinois and Wisconsin work ethic that I am use to. At this meeting I hired Lisa to represent me in my Divorce proceedings. Lisa is a very thorough and competent Family Law Divorce Attorney who always had my best interests in mind. Lisa would not hesitate to tell me when I had to focus my attention and bring me back on point and not let my emotions get in the way. Lisa and her staff never missed a scheduled meeting with me and always answered or returned my calls and Emails on a timely basis. During the 22 months that Lisa represented me until my Final Divorce decree (with-out trial) in December, 2015, she consistently demonstrated all of these qualities and more, and I heartily endorse her for any individual who requires the services of an outstanding Family Law Divorce Attorney. Of particular note... Lisa's billing's for Professional Services rendered were very reasonable and detailed. I never had to question any of her Statements for Services rendered.

In 2015 I hired Lisa Kleinberg and associates to represent me in the dissolution of my marriage... Her office offered me a high degree of professionalism and was able to help navigate me through a tough and tricky divorce settlement. I came here from out of state and Lisa understanding of Florida law led to a very quick and fair settlement .. Lisa made herself available to answer my questions on an almost daily basis.. Divorce is never an easy matter but Lisa held my hand through the whole process and answered all of my questions with a great degree of legal skill..

I never thought my "custody battle" would last as long as it did. Going into year 3 now and I can't even begin to express my gratitude to Lisa and her whole team. Mine was not an ordinary case and at times I felt like I was fighting an uphill battle, but I always knew what was going on and I was always "in the loop." Lisa was very honest with me. She told me when to compromise and she told me when not to give in and each time- it wasn't about me or my son's father- but about my son and what was best for him.
I read a couple of reviews that she didn't return phone calls and I can't believe it- my phone calls were always returned and she would listen to me and let me cry, scream, rant and rave! Angela and L'Tea were so good to me and so helpful! They got to know me and my son and it showed.
I am telling you....if you ever need to go into a courtroom- you want Lisa on your side- hands down!

I hired lisa for a divorce, after spending way too much money for nothing, I had to find a different atty. She does not return phone calls, she allowed me to have a motion to compel put on me and my case, I had provided her with all of the necessary information and documents in a very timely manner and way ahead of her deadline for me to have them. When I asked her about this she simply said that the court deadline was just a soft date and not to worry. I would not recommend her to anyone unless you want to be treated poorly and not represented properly.

Ms. Kleinberg and her staff have always been willing to help. Anytime I had a question they would respond in a timely manner. She was always on time to all of the court meetings and conference calls. She would call me on her way to court and ask if there was anything I had questions about. I never felt like I was in the dark with her. She was always upfront and honest with me. She is a very compassionate lady and understands children come first.
Ms. Kleinberg is very understanding when it comes to finances being tight during a divorce and is willing to work with you. Just don’t take advantage.
Ms. Kleinberg definitely knows her family law. She was recommended to me from a friend and I drove over an hour to meet with her and I am so glad I did.
Hopefully I will never be in a situation where I would need to hire her but if I was I would in a heartbeat.

Lisa Kleinberg knows her family law. She was very knowledgeabel with alimony and child support. Lisa ALWAYS returned my calls in a timely manner, maybe not that day but the following day, as she does have other clients.
Lisa was focused on making sure that my kids and I got what was rightfully ours. I had never been through a divorce before (married over 20+ years) nor would I wish this on anyone. Lisa was very supportive in helping me understand what all the legal terminology meant.
Lisa took on my case knowing that I was in Hillsborough County and that it would be at least an hour drive to the court house and most likely a couple of trips until the case was over. She never was late and was always in communication with me on her way there letting me know where to meet her so we could talk before going into the court room.
Every time I would call her office knew who I was and was always pleasant to speak with. Not only did I have the office phone I also had Lisa’s personal cell number.
Lisa goes into the court room with her documents in prepared and in a file that is organized. She is a class act when it comes to representing.
If I ever need an attorney again she will be my first choice. I hoping I never have to but not because of her.
Lisa, L’tea and Angie you all are amazing and helped me through one of the hardest times of my life!

PLEASE! Spend your money elsewhere. Lisa can not be bothered to return messages or emails... I placed more than 32 phone calls to her office during my case with little return contact. Luckily, her assistant knows how to use a phone occasionally. Regarding my divorce; I found GROSS errors in form specific data, and child support payment calculations appeared to be from a generic template and she forgot to change all the blanks from her last case!!! Emails seem to disappear and are scarcely returned or acknowledged. Lisa FAILED to file NUMEROUS papers required by the Manatee County court system to establish my child support order. After a weeks of calling and persisting that she follow up, the only answers Lisa had were the "it's not my fault" garbage answers. I finally had to get my own case worker and file the paperwork MYSELF after Lisa fell of the face of the earth following my final hearing.
Lisa was a HOUR LATE to my mediation because (and I quote) "My feet were killing me so I had to run home and change my shoes) I WAS SPEECHLESS! REALLY?!?!? It should have been no surprise then that she was also 30 minutes late to my final hearing, where she also "forgot" my paperwork that had to be turned in!
I'm done writing this review because it's just aggravating me again to no end. In closing, Please Please PLEASE use another attorney. I got screwed, no need for you to get screwed too.
