Kleyman Domestic Relations Law Firm Client
Val acted with honesty and integrity and that’s not something that you see every single day. You can’t put a price tag on that. At the end of the day, a legal firm is a business, but what that man has shown me is heart, compassion and understanding. In my personal opinion, this is the best law firm to be at.

entire legal team behind you instead of one lawyer
We are able to offer each case and client the best of what our entire team of attorneys has to offer. Each of our attorneys has a unique set of skills (counseling, legal writing, research, court advocacy, etc.) that they are particularly good at and we put those skills to use for every case and client, even those that are not primarily handled by this specific attorney. This process places an entire legal team behind each matter instead of a single lawyer.
During your initial consultation, we will personally review and discuss the facts and legal issues you may be facing. We will provide guidance, build a personalized legal and psychological strategy and help select the right lead attorney for your case in our firm who has the required legal skill set, knows the specific court, the judge and has the right experience matching the posture, complexity and individual needs of each case.
We focus on resolution. Divorce and family law matters often involve animosity and conflict. It’s easy for lawyers and clients to lose focus of what matters most and the bigger picture. Our family law attorneys will make sure this does not happen from the very beginning and throughout the entire legal process while zealously representing your interests inside and outside of the courtroom. Our goal is to get you through this time as quickly as possible.
