Who should have presented a defense for me? The Lawyer, Genevieve Houle-Torres, whom I hired for representation, re-paid me with seemingly a lack of confidence, competence, and due diligence, who seemed to conspire with and identify with the Opposing Counsel and his client. So, I made the difficult decision to report her behaviors to The Florida Bar.
Amid many other atrocities, she agreed without my consent that I would pay half of a medical expense that was out-of-network. Attorney Torres didn’t draw the line and say ‘Enough is enough’ anywhere for me. The opposing team stomped us!
Requesting no proof of truthfulness- no documentation - from the Opposing Counsel seems to have been okay with Attorney Torres, since the Opposing Counsel presented none, and she asked for none. It was a hellacious ride, 1 year of arbitration and 45 minutes of Court Hearing. So, I would not recommend Attorney Genevieve Houle-Torres to anyone

Genevieve was an amazing attorney. She made me feel so comfortable while going through a difficult time! Was always available when I called or emailed. Divorce is a rough time, but working with her made it so much easier. I would recommend her to anyone!

I hired Ms. Torres to represent me in my divorce case. She proved to be the perfect hire for me. Never having gone through anything like this before, naturally I had lots of questions and concerns. She took the necessary time to explain each step in the process. She was very organized and looked out for my best interest. Her legal assistant Kyrsten was always very polite and pleasent as well as knowledgeable. If I called her with a question she couldn't answer she would make a point to get the answer and call me right back. They were always just a phone call or email away. Ms Torres and her staff made this painful process as pleasent as it could possibly be.

I have had the opportunity to work closely with Genevieve over the past year, and I will fully endorse this lawyer. Genevieve is a passionate advocate for her family law clients, and pays close attention to the details of each case. She is highly ethical and is a consummate professional.
