I have been in Family Court more times in the last 11 years than I care to say. I went through three other attorneys the first 2 years, all of whom ended up being less than capable to handle all the issues involving the manipulative tactics of my ex. Unfortunately, like marriage, sometimes you don't recognize bad choices until you're well into the game. Those first two years ended up costing me hundreds of thousands of dollars and drove me into bankruptcy. The attorneys seemed more intent on increasing their billable hours than resolving my case in a cost effective and healthy manner.
In 2010, I heard about Andrew Klausner and decided to give him a call. Hiring Andrew is one of the best decisions of my life. My only regret was that I did not do it sooner. Even though our divorce judgement was finalized in 2011, there have been ongoing issues with my ex who is unwilling to comply with court orders and is steadfast in creating chaos in our children's lives, and mine. After so much personal experience with attorneys and court over the last 11 years, I am well aware that even with the best attorney, things can be unpredictable and go awry. Andrew's confidence, extraordinary experience, sharp instincts, and caring sense of partnership with me consistently got me the best results possible without breaking my bank. Moreover, the stress of dealing with custody issues can be overwhelming, and his involvement in my case over these last 9 years gave me more peace of mind than I can ever express. We just completed yet another a 6-month, 2-hearing matter, and Andrew was successful once again. Actually, there were many issues in the matter, so there were multiple wins on all counts. Even bigger than winning in court, was the peace of mind I had due to Andrew and his highly professional, attentive and caring team at Klausner Johnson.
I highly recommend attorney Andrew Klausner for any kind of divorce, or any legal issue for that matter. Andrew is not only highly experienced and knowledgeable--he's street smart and people smart. Andrew is extremely good at his craft, genuinely cares about his clients, is the epitome of integrity, makes himself accessible to his clients (how refreshing!!), and goes well beyond the call of duty to be responsive and effective. He charges more per hour than any of the attorneys I have used before, but don't let the sticker shock cause you concern... I spent far less money with Andrew and his firm in the last 9 years with many more hearings, documents, and issues while actually getting results than with any of the three prior attorneys in my first two years, not to mention the much needed peace of mind I got with Andrew representing me. He cares much more about his clients personal and financial well being than his own personal gain. Andrew is realistic, honest, and sees the big picture. He would tell me when it is not in my best interest to pursue an issue, and then try to help me find alternative solutions, even though it certainly would have lined his pockets--significantly--to litigate. And, when he does litigate-he is consistently successful with the best possible results in the most efficient and cost-effective way.
Lastly, if you don't live near any of the Klausner Johnson offices, don't let that stop you. My court and residence is about 50 miles away from their offices, and it has never been an issue. In fact, on the rare occasion I chose to meet him in person at the office, it was always well worth the drive compared to the drive to the local attorneys I used in the beginning.
