"Attorney Robert Kleinschmidt was heaven sent for me and my family. Our daughter had a very rare injury at birth. So rare that there is yet to be another case seen to date. Rob was there for us, like a family member and friend, from start to finish. He and his staff are compassionate, kind, helpful, and professional. Our daughter recently turned 18 years of age and all these years later Rob was still here for us. To answer any questions and help with the follow up with the courts. I can't begin to explain the integrity that this gentleman has. If ever I have a problem with anything Rob will be the first person I call." Aleal
"When hearing the word integrity with the word attorney it isn't usually in the same sentence unless you are speaking of Robert Kleinschmidt. I never thought I would sue someone but I nearly lost my life due to someone's negligence and had enormous medical bills. From the moment I met Robert Kleinschmidt and his staff I felt I was part of his family. I was nervous about the case and the proceedings but he made me focus on what was the most important thing which was getting myself well. I cannot say enough about how caring he was to me and my family. He's a man of the highest integrity & compassion." JJ
"After experiencing a life changing collision, I was fortunate enough to be referred to the law offices of Robert Kleinschmidt, and his amazing staff. I find it hard to put into words what Rob and his law firm means to me and how hard he and his staff worked for me, but very and I mean very simply put: I found an attorney and staff that was beyond honest, selfless and hard working that treated me like I was the only case they had. They worked long tireless days and evenings, always treated me with respect and the truth. They catered to my injury and therefore went the extra miles and there were many. One thing I can say for certain it this: He can be trusted, he is on your side 200% and goes as many extra miles as he needs to go. Now that my case is over I am beginning my grieving process of not having regular contact with Rob and his staff and I miss them so much." Lisa K.
"My wife was a victim of malpractice. The procedure, from beginning to end, we were extremely impressed with Rob Kleinschmidt and his staff.

Any concern or thought we had, they were very quick to respond to us. All in all, they made going through a rough time as smooth as possible. We wanted to take time out to thank them." Jeff S.
