    • I do not recommend Denise Houghton.
    • I hired Denise 6-12 months ago.
    • Denise handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was recently a client of Denise's. She was unresponsive to phone calls and email, often taking weeks to reply. She was not aggressive as she claimed she would be and allowed my case to drag on for almost a year when it should have been done in less than a month. During the time she dragged out my case she continued to bill me for unnecessary work resulting in a bill 4 times larger than she said it should cost. When I brought this up to her and her staff she threatened me to submit a change of attorney if I didn't like the way she did things. Of course this was in the middle of the case and would have left me hanging and I would lose the money I had already paid her. In the end, she did not accomplish any of the things we discussed at the time I hired her.

  2. Amazing, Intelligent,Strategically Aggressive Lawyer who looks out for your best interests.

    After all the nightmare experiences i've heard about lawyers & divorces,I count my blessings when I went thru my divorce I had Denise advising every move. She took charge & knew what was fair and just. I highly recommend her.

    • I recommend Denise Houghton.

    • Denise handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I am a current client of Denise and I can only say that she is very responsive and extremely knowledgeable. I have been through a prior divorce and I wish I had known her then. She also has a great staff of clerks and other office employees that are just as on the ball as she is .. I feel so secure in the way she is handling my case..
