In April of 2019 I was in a (what could have been) severe car accident. I was stopped in traffic and was rear-ended by a SUV going 60mph. This was my first real accident and also my first dealings with a lawyer. From the beginning of the process I was scared of what to do and if I would be taken advantage of, but from the first moment I sat down to the last signature on the paperwork I had a feeling of being treated like a person and not a payout. I can’t even express in words how the entire staff of Kleinman and Lessmann handled my case. They were always polite and informative, but more importantly…they weren’t pushy. I was in control of my case; they guided me through each step to explain what the process was so I wasn’t scared or confused anymore. If I ever need a personal injury lawyer again, there is no question…they are my lawyers!
I have had the privilege of Ian Kleinman and Bennett Lessmann representing me in my personal injury case. They are honest, trustworthy and very straightforward. They will tell you exactly where you stand and what direction you should go. They have tenacity coupled with a degree of tenderness but never lose site of the end goal, which is to protect, defend and have the best outcome for their client. Which is exactly what they did!! My long journey is finally at an end with the best outcome possible. With the help of their amazing staff, they get the job done. THANK YOU!!
Two different friends referred me to Kleinman & Lessmann, after I was injured in a car an accident. I was able to focus on my recovery while they handled the of tedious process of dealing with 2 mega insurance companies, including my own UM carrier, who were more concerned with playing games than covering my medical bills. K&L stopped their games and guided me through the whole process.
I couldn’t be happier with the end result of my case, they were very thorough with me, explaining all my options. I have gone on to refer friends and the results have been the same. I have continued to work with them in some of my community programs and they continue to support all our efforts to help the youth and raise awareness against substance use disorder, this is what truly makes them remarkable and separates them, please don’t hesitate, their help and experience has changed the course of my life and family.
