This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Grateful for his representation!
I would like to echo what has been said in the other reviews and add that Hans has the rare combination of being an extremely ethical and personable attorney. His legal skills and knowledge are outstanding but even those are overshadowed by his interpersonal skills. He had the ability to deal with opposing counsel's atrocious behavior and prevent my case from going to trial, but still was able to obtain an advantageous settlement for me. Truly, it is amazing to watch him work. He has an incredible memory and a keen sense of how to handle people in a warm and personable manner. He has a reputation in the court system for being an ethical and courteous person, yet not someone who can be taken advantage of. He is an extremely hard worker, and was able to implement my wishes as much as humanly possible based on my initial and subsequent interviews with him. It was very comforting to have him working on my side during the worst year of my life. I cannot begin to express how thankful I am for his help.

I will hire him again should I need representation
Mr. Kuenzi represented me in a child custody case, and made sure I got a fair outcome for my child. He was praised by the social worker the court ordered to evaluate our case. And despite being opposing counsel, even my ex was so impressed by him that she recommended him to a friend.

Very knowledgeable & lots of help
I worked with Hans on my child support case about a year-and-a-half ago. He was a fair, efficient attorney who handled my case well. I appreciated that he took the time to get to know me as well as my family; friends that I have spoke with have noted that other attorneys in their past treated them like they were just a number or paycheck. Hans is a charismatic, quick, and friendly man who happens to be an excellent lawyer. He knows the law and the "books" well. Top notch I believe.

A True Professional!!
Hans and his staff dealt with my divorce last year in a courteous and professional manner. There are literally hundreds of family law attorneys to choose from in the Cleveland area, and I just happened upon Mr. Kuenzi through word of mouth. I am so glad that I did! He is attentive, personal, and responsive whenever I had a question or issue. Although he has so many years of experience he made your case feel as though it was on top of his priorities. I would definitely recommend Mr. Kuenzi, and I am sure that my children would, too.

Excellence in Professionalism!
Hans Kuenzi represented me in my divorce several years ago. He's a wonderful attorney and almost professional to a fault, with a very nice personality. My case was in domestic relations court but if I need an attorney in the future, he will be my first call!
