Paula Kleinman is absolutely the worst attorney. I went to her for help. I was trying to get a divorce. I never received billing statements till 4 months in I requested them. I gave her a retainer of $3000. She filed the first round of paperwork and then said she had my ex served. She not only didn't have him served. My paperwork was never filed. After finding a great attorney, my new attorney showed me what was filed. I was charged for multiple filings. And multiple services that were never served. Her assistant, another attorney whose name is also Paula, dipped continuously into my account with no progress on my divorce. I had to restart from the beginning. Paula charged me $2300 to file the initial paperwork. And the rest was completed by my Awesome Family Law Attorney for $4500 total. Paula is dishonest and crude. My first meeting her she said to me, (I have a terminal illness) she said sitting across from me.... It may be because you have terminal illness, but your breath smells like bad sausage. Could you breath in another direction?
If you want to be insulted, overcharged, and feel small and scared, use Paula Klienman.

Outstanding customer service, i would recommend Paula to anyone going through a family law matter.

She really helped me through a hard time and was able to get me better than expected results.




I believe in Attorney Paula Kleinman’s ability and expertise so much that I am writing my first review ever in the hopes that she can help your family as much as she has helped mine.

Initially, I tried to handle my case myself but after going to court I quickly realized I was in way over my head. I contacted Paula at the last minute, leaving her less than a week to familiarize herself with my case. Instead of turning me away, she just looked at her schedule and started naming off dates and times she could squeeze me in to prepare for court. Paula was incredibly easy to work with and showed great compassion for what I was going through. Obviously, family court is never going to be a fun or happy experience but my meetings with Paula managed to lighten the mood and gave me the confidence to keep going. She did her best to keep our costs down every step of the way. For instance, we were trying to obtain court records from out of state and for some strange reason the court charged far less if you used a Discover card. My husband and I just sat back and laughed as Paula rushed around her office trying to find anyone with a Discover card. She also gave me options I didn’t even know existed. Paula effectively negotiated with everyone involved and reached an agreement we could all accept, thus, ending any future court appearances, lawyers’ fees and most importantly the stress and pain this ordeal was causing my family and me. I firmly believe Paula’s tactful persistence is the only reason I was able to end this painful chapter in my life so quickly.

Paula will fight tooth and nail for her clients but she does so with tact and class. That is why I would whole-heartedly recommend Attorney Paula Kleinman to all my friends, family and even strangers on the street if they were in need of an outstanding family lawyer.


Attorney Paula Kleinman is an EXCELLENT attorney!

I had a custody battle with my ex-husband who violated a court order and did not return my 2 minor children home. Paula and her staff were ALWAYS professional and very hard workers. My case was complex and Paula was VERY knowledgeable about what to do next. If she got stuck in a hard spot, she discussed my options with me and sometimes sought advice from experienced colleagues if need be.

Paula is an HONEST attorney who will fight til death for what is right. I needed a Bull-Dog -Go-Getter type of attorney, and I'm glad I found her! Her job is not just a paycheck, she was very passionate about my case!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Paula Kleinman. I retained Paula after my miserable and costly experience with a previous attorney. She worked zealously on my case. Paula was compassionate and easy to talk to when discussing my case and the actions that needed to be taken. It is hard to find an understanding attorney who will take the time to know you on a personal level. I had a very litigious divorce case, but Paula handled it gracefully and with sensible attorney’s fees. From the research I did prior to hiring Paula, her rates are very reasonable and her services worthwhile. I am shocked to see that other clients had a terrible experience with Paula. I would recommend Paula to anyone and everyone, as she is a marvelous attorney who knows the law, and works diligently around the clock to achieve success.

Paula Kleinman is a pleasure to work with . I have collaberated with her on several occasions and found her to be very knowledgable and compassionate. I would definitely recommend her to friends and associates to handle their cases.



Disgruntled Client

Paula Kleinman was the absolute worst attorney I have ever been represented by. She was unprofessional, unorganized, rude, condescending, and has now idea on how to help her clients. I should have read all of these reviews previous to this. Such a shame she took so much money from my family and did absolutely nothing. The funny thing is, is that I realize that by representing myself what a waste of money it was for Paula Kleinman to attend law school. I though you were supposed to come out of law school with knowledge. Guess not!! I was thinking about attending law school myself if anyone can get a law degree. Sorry to see all the folks who have been ripped of by her. "THE WORST ATTORNEY EVER DO NOT PAY HER MONEY... HIRE A PROFESSIONAL"




Better think long and hard before you give this one your money. Paula is the kind of attorney that gives other attorneys a bad name. I would recommend someone else for sure.
