Came through on tough case
Ms. Kleinpeter handled a case where our FCRA rights had been violated. Case progress had its up and downs over two years, but in the end, her tenacity and legal smarts paid off with a resolution and settlement in our favor. We'd recommend Amy to anyone wanting to legally defend their consumer rights. If we ever have future need of Automobile or Consumer Protection legal counsel again, we'll be knocking on her door.

Amazing Lawyer for credit repair
I had the misfortune of a collection agency denting my credit report with debt that I did not owe. Although the amount was not huge, the implication of collections being reported to the bureau was a nightmare. I turned to Amy for help and she alleviated my panic and anxiety, prepared a strong case and went after the bad guys! She was always responsive to emails and phone calls and kept me informed of the case as and when something new came up. From my interaction with Amy, she comes off as a very honest and frank person which I felt was very important - She never sugar-coated the reality, told me things as is, sticking to facts and never indulging in falsely raising my hopes up. So, to sum up, I would highly recommend Amy for any credit related issues that you may have.

Excellent

Awesome Attorney
Amy is great lawyer to work with. She has great knowledge of dealing with credit card agencies and helped to clear wrong credit history/ incorrect debts on my account. I wasn't able to resolve this for the past five years but Amy's assistance greatly changed my case and ultimately resolved it. I can now think of getting car loan/mortgage etc. Amy's promptness in response, good advice, positive attitude and organized approach are very important qualities. I will highly recommend Amy to friends/family.

Absolute Best!
Amy is an amazingly smart and super caring lawyer! She helped walk me through what seemed like a very scary process. She kept me informed, explained things to me in basic terms, and - I felt- as though she always had my best interests in mind.

Caring, intelligent, diligent and well versed in litigation related to debt collection and harassment
Amy is extremely caring, intelligent, diligent and well versed in litigation related to debt collection and harassment. She worked with me for over a year to settle a case and at every step of the way from initial consultation to deposition and lastly settlement discussions I felt that I was in good hands and was working with someone who always went above and beyond. Amy was always available via email and cell – which I why I am a little surprised to see comments that she was unresponsive. This is simply not the case at all, and I always found Amy to be extremely proactive with keeping me in the loop on findings and key conversations along her own research and how it could benefit my case. Most of all, Amy put me at ease. It’s not fun to be served with a lawsuit, nor receive several calls from debt collectors at one’s home and business. Amy was there to walk me through every step of the process. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone looking for the same guidance.

Best Attorney Ever!
Amy was referred to me by another attorney who said she would be great for my case. She was more then what I expected. She always kept me updated and would return my calls right away if I had any questions. She would always ask me what I thought on certain things about the case before she would proceed on doing them, which meant she would give me options and not doing them without my approval. Amy is not only a great attorney to have but she is also a great person. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.

responsible, reliable and committed
My initial meeting with Amy Kleinpeter left me feeling that I had met with a caring, informed and dedicated attorney. She graciously gave me a huge amount of valuable information much of which left me feeling some relief and a clearer perspective on debt collections/collectors. She answered every question and advised me not to second guess myself in thinking ANY question was unimportant. She returned my calls and emails promptly. She kept me updated on situations as soon as she received any news. Amy helped me in keeping a positive and responsible focus where I found I could've been very self-judgmental.

Dealership case
I hired this lawyer about three months ago and I've only heard from her about two times concerning my case. I'm very dissaponted as to how my case has been handled. This case was very serious and I trusted her to get the job done. I don't know what to do at this time. I've tried calling, and sending emails to the attorney and as of today she has yet to contact me. I've even asked her to withdraw from the case so that I may seek other help. It's like she has dropped from the face of the earth.

Response from Amy Clark April 9, 2019
Unfortunately I have no idea who you are. It is possible you were a potential client who's claims I was reviewing and I apologize that you felt ignored. 2015 I was out for a disability and working very few hours but it is never my intention to make anyone feel ignored. I hope you found an attorney to take your perspective claims.

No Bite, No Results, I'm On My Own Again
When I came to her with my case, she was intrigued and thought we had a winner. A few months later, I saw the first communications she sent to the would-be plaintiff. I was happy to receive copies of the letters she sent them. She sounded tough and determined. The deadlines she gave them to settle came and went. They spoke with her over telephone and calmed her down. Over 6 months after their settlement "deadline" passed, my attempts to get a status from her were finally successful when she called me and informed me that if I still wanted to pursue a case against them, I could go to small claims court alone, but that she was done serving as my counsel. She said it would be difficult for her to recover her costs and she would have to write it off. Over a year had passed since I first hired her and now I'm serving as my own lawyer in the matter. Hopefully I have better results without her. I know the plaintiff will not passify me so easily.

I am sorry you did not trust my judgment on the facts of your case. I hope that you found a satisfactory resolution to your issue. It is always frustrating when the law does not cover all inequities.
