I found Cary on Yelp. He responded quickly even on a holiday weekend morning. He also set up a face to face meeting right after hearing my case. He gave me professional and useful legal advice on my house selling. Definitely I will hire him again if I have legal advice needs.

I am going to sell a property off market , and was informed that I could use a lawyer to do this. I was not knowledgeable about real estate. Cary Kletter was very informative and explained things very well. He is easy to talk to and makes himself available. I am very glad that I reached out to him.

I recently consulted with Cary Kletter regarding a possible wrongful termination case. From the very beginning, Cary responded quickly to my inquiry, which set the tone for our entire interaction. Although I cannot disclose the specifics of my case, I can say that Cary was extremely thorough in explaining the legal process and concepts to someone like myself, who had no prior knowledge of these matters. Cary's professionalism, knowledge, and expertise led to a positive outcome in my case, which exceeded my expectations. Working with him was truly a 10/10 experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Cary Kletter to anyone in need of an employment attorney. You won't be disappointed!

I needed help with landlord-tenant law questions. I called Mr. Lee's office. Mr. Lee returned my call and answered all my questions the same day that I called him. I called him 2 other times and he always responded in a timely fashion. I appreciate that Paul was always there when I needed help.
