Caring Compassionate and Thorough
At first Rob wasn't sure if he would take my case. After speaking more at length with him he felt that he did want to help me. It took 3 years. Through the entire process Rob was very caring, compassionate and thorough. I knew he really cared about all of his clients. I live in another state so I would have to come back to AZ to prepare for the depositions and all the doctor appts. I felt like Rob was always with me and helping me. We were able to settle my case before it went to trial.

Robert Kleinschmidt
Atty Kleinschmidt went above and beyond the call of duty on my case. He worked day and night and believed in me and never doubted me or gave up on my case. He was tireless and brilliantly worked my case. This man gives a whole new meaning to attorneys because he truly cares about his cases and believes in the fairness of the law and fight tooth and nail for his clients. He does not pass his work off to associates or assistants he does the research, footwork and hard work. He truly is an old school atty in the modern times with a brilliant mind. You are lucky to be chosen as his his client.
