    • I do not recommend Denise Khoury.
    • I hired Denise 1-3 years ago.
    • Denise handled my Child Support matter.

    Denise was the most awful attorney I have ever dealt with. Every time I met with her she went round and round, she seemed to be very unprepared and distracted. My case was only a child support matter, she promised it would be simple. My case ended up costing over $20,000.00 for a matter that I was not contesting simply wanted to go by the state guidelines. She billed almost daily ".25 for intra-office communications" whatever that means. I was force to hire another attorney that in a matter of 2 hours my case was reviewed and closed. I would never recommend Denise to anyone. Please be aware she will promise to finish a case and bill you off the ying yang!

      Lawyer Comment:

      Mr./Mrs. Nuñez - I am very sorry and disappointed that you feel that my representation was "awful" – especially since I all but ate, slept, and breathed your case (charging you only a fraction of my time) and defended against a T just and irrational attorney on the other side who issued pages of discovery for "just a child support case." Also, from the beginning, I highly recommended that you either retain me on a hourly consulting basis, or you allow me to refer you to a lawyer who would charge you less per hour then I, even having my associate handle part of the case at a reduced rate. Several times I recommended that I would draw from the case and refer you to another attorney, but each time you refused, asking me to continue to represent you in that matter. After several court appearances, discovery arguments, and numerous meetings with you and your spouse (before and after each court appearance), I was finally able to transfer the case (despite strong objection from the lower court and the attorney on the other side) to the more appropriate District Court. I explained each part of the process in detail to both of you in Spanish and English; and after transferring the case to the District Court, I knew that I could withdraw from representation, refer you to a respected colleague, and the matter would be quickly resolved. I am happy to know that was the case – i'm sure it helped greatly that the litigious and inexperienced attorney on the other side was no longer representing your ex.
      I truly hope that you and your daughters are doing well. And although I am very sorry that you felt ill represented, I stand by the decisions and I made, with your active approval, and handling your case. Wishing you the best now and always. Denise

    • I recommend Denise Khoury.
    • I hired Denise 1-3 years ago.
    • Denise handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Denise has done a fantastic job in my divorce representation. She has been wonderful in working with the opposing council who has been extremly difficult to work with every step of the way. She is professional, experienced and has bent over backwards to protect my interest in everyway. She has gone above and beyond what I expected, communicating at all hours of the day and on weekends when necessary.
    I am living out of the State of Texas, making the situation even more difficult for her, yet she has handled this added difficulty very well.
    She has been very responsive to the ever changing situation and is always concerned with the most important part of the divorce, the children! She has done everything in her power to make sure they were taken care, protected and the final outcome was as much in thier favor as possible.

    Denise was great during a time of great stress in my life. Not only a great lawyer but great in telling me about the over-all process (of divorce; and then later a pre-nuptul agreement) and assuring me that I could and would indeed survive the process.

    Denise was on top of the program at all times and was very savvy when it came to court politics and knowing how to best employ the nuances in the laws and court rules. She fought for what was best for me and strived to understand the specifics of my case that made it unique from other cases - a divorce is a divorce is a divorce but each case has different circumstances and personalities involved and Denise did not try to handle my case in a cookie-cutter fashion.

    While in the waiting room of her practice I could see that she represented a variety of people from all walks of life. Based on my interactions with her my guess is that all of her clients were treated respectfully and received as much attention as did I.

    She has an aptitude for listening and dealing with tough adversaries. I would highly recommend her. I consider her a top-flight attorney.

    • I recommend Denise Khoury.
    • I hired Denise 1-3 years ago.
    • Denise handled my Adoption matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    My husband and I decided for me to legally adopt my step children who were 13 and 14 at the time and lost their birth mother many years ago. Considering there were no objecting parties from me, the kids, my husband and even their birth mother's mother!, we were shocked to hear that the children were required to be assigned a lawyer by the government to represent them. However, when Denise came in to do her work, we were blown away. She gave the kids absolute respect and an open pathway to express any concerns they might have. Even though it was an open and shut case, she put so much time and care into assuring this was the right move for us all. It is apparent that Denise does this with all her clients, as she truly worked with all her heart and soul. We were sad to see her go when it was all finished. I would choose Denise to represent me with any legal matters I might have in the future.

    • Denise handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Denise was very good to work with from start to finish of my case. She listen to what i have to say and could even understand where I was coming from when trying to explain how I felt about my what I was going through and the things that I wanted out of my divorce. She always made me feel welcome to talk with her and she would always listen to what i had to say. She got me exactly what i wanted from my divorce and could of not asked for anything more. I would recommend anyone to work with Denise on any case they might have because I had nothing but a great experience with her on mine.
