John was recommended to me by a friend and I am so grateful I retained him to litigate my divorce! John was very understanding and always available for my questions and responded almost immediately. This was a very difficult time for me, but I knew John was taking care of the legal side for me and that was one less worry. His knowledge was invaluable but always gave me the choice of options. John is very professional and very thorough. I truly believe I wouldn't have received the settlement I did with any other lawyer. I was very happy with the outcome and I cannot stress what a fantastic job John did! I would (and have) highly recommend John.

Mr. Klobasa is a wonderfully warm, understanding and empathetic attorney. His knowledge and expertise has been very helpful for my case and preparing me for statements. I am very confident that as the case progresses Mr. Klobasa will make sure that my settlement is fair and what I deserve. I know that having him in my corner is the best decision and he has taken the stress and uncertainty of my case off my shoulders. I would highly recommend him.

John selected a lawyer in his firm to assist in the sale of my dental practice. While the other attorney handled the details, John oversaw the process and gave input. John handled the probate of my brother's estate, ensuring we were informed of all aspects in a timely manner.

I have worked together with John on numerous and diverse litigation matters for over 40 years. He is a very capable trial lawyer specializing in general litigation, complex business litigation and marital litigation. I am delighted to endorse him.
