Wonderful Attorney
My wife and I will be forever grateful for finding Robert Klingler to represent us for my employment arbitration. From the initial meeting, Mr. Klingler was attentive and supportive, and showed great confidence in pursuing our case. He was able to quickly determine the legal paths for proceeding with our arbitration and outlined our options in a clear and convincing way, giving us a full understanding of the potential outcomes. Mr. Klingler maintained communication with us consistently throughout the process leading up to our arbitration and delivered a deliberate, intentional, and focused approach during the arbitration process that lead to a substantial outcome for our case. Despite the difficult odds for winning employment arbitrations, I believe that Mr. Klingler’s experienced approach gave us a not only the foundation for a successful outcome, but also provided us the support to navigate the entirety of the process with trust and confidence. We highly recommend Mr. Klingler to anyone facing the challenging resolution of employment disputes.

Non-compete assistance
Robert returned my phone call quickly and was able to work with my schedule to meet as I had a tight deadline. He provided excellent advice on several different documents and I felt confident about my decision after leaving his office. Thank you!

Honest attorney and great human being
Robert takes the the time to explain things thoroughly when you get overwhelmed by the process. My case took 2 years and he still had time every step of the way to talk to me when needed. All I had to do was send him an email and he would call me to explain away any doubts I had. He had a couple of associate attorneys that worked for him that weren't too concerned with the details but seemed a lot more concerned with loading up on billable hours. Even though I wasn't going to be charged for those but it seemed they did it so it would seem to Robert like they were being productive. They have since moved on and aren't working at the firm anymore. I highly recommend Robert Klinger if you need an attorney.

The man of integrity
For a variety of legal circumstances, Robert Klinger has been my legal counsel for approximately 9 years. Mr. Klingler's desire to choose justice over financial gain is a true testament of his character. As a result of his selfless practices and compassion, I have survived and continue to survive through some horrific battles. He is without a doubt the exception to the rule.

Blows away the attorney stereotypes
Lawyers are often perceived as being dishonest, self serving, greedy and other, not-so flattering adjectives but Mr. Klingler and his staff are the antithesis of these. I hired Mr. Klingler in 2011 to help me with an employment law case. From the beginning he and his staff concerned themselves with my feelings and emotional wellbeing. Even though they handled everything, including arguing my case before the Ohio Supreme Court, they kept me involved the entire time. They made it clear it was my case and, with excellent guidance and counsel, helped me to attain an equitable resolution. Bob and Patricia were interested in getting to know me, my family and the dynamics thereof. They took the time and made the effort to become my friend and I trusted them completely in the advice they gave. I cannot say enough good things about the 4 years I spent with him; and, although it was the longest 4 years of my life and I couldn't be happier to see my case come to a close, I will miss the camaraderie we built during these years. If you are looking for an honest and hard working attorney and all around quality human being then look no further than Bob Klingler.

Great Lawyer. Great Service. Great Guy.
Robert Klinger is an absolutely outstanding attorney. Not only is he a very good attorney, he is also a very good person. He represented me in a very complex matter in which we overwhelmingly prevailed. I highly recommend Mr. Klinger.

A lawyer who works for you!
Working with Robert Klingler and Brian Butler was a positive experience from beginning to end. From the office staff to the paralegals, you won't find a team out there that will answer the phone when you call, reply to emails when you write, and be there for you when you feel concerned, as much as they did with me and my case. I worked with them for three years and feel as though there was not a better fit out there. When other lawyers didn't think I had a case, Robert Klingler Co. believed otherwise. The amount of research and time put into my case proved to be the reason we came out successful. I not only gained a lawyer, but also a friend and contact forever.

very helpful, patient and persistant
Robert and his team handled my case very professionally. My previous employer was very difficult and slow in responding but Robert was consistent and steady in his approach to push for resolution. He stood fast on our demands and helped me to negotiate a successful settlement. I could have never done this without him.
