Good attorney
I found Linda Klatchko on Martindale Hubbell Peer Rating Service after a former legal secretary confirmed this as the site that attorneys use. Linda was very highly rated on that sight, and in our first conversation gave me the impression that she was meticulous (which turned out to be true). I am grateful that I had her to represent me. She coached me well in covering my paperwork and interpersonal bases. She was understanding and helped me correct common misconceptions I had. She caught and followed up with details missed by other parties, and enlisted her husband Phil in making sure an important real-estate issue was correctly executed. She coached me how to protect some of my more vulnerable supporting records. She discussed options with me and helped me be realistic. Her staff was both friendly and responsive to my calls, as was Ms. Klatchko in her call-backs. Emails and mailings from her office were timely. Based on my experience I recommend her.

Outstanding Lawyer
Utilizing her legal expertise, business acumen, and effective communication skills, Linda Klatchko is one of the best attorneys in the Coachella Valley. I was fortunate to have her professional representation, and highly recommend her and her husband, Phil.

Best Money I Ever Spent
Linda was recommended by a friend of mine. I was going through a divorce and wanted a female attorney. The fact that Linda's husband Phil is also a Family Law attorney was a big plus for me since I also had a business to deal with. They were fair and represented me well in all aspects. My case involved being referred out for forensic accounting and marriage and family therapy. Those were good choices as well. Definite win win as far as I was concerned.

Linda Klatchko is the most professional lawyer I have met from Palm Springs to New York. She is very understanding and knowledgeable about family problems and family law. She is also most patient lawyer that I have ever met. I would highly recommend her for any one in need of divorce and adoption problems and need quick and excellent results.
