    Posted by John R

    I approached law office of Anne Kennedy for help with my immigration case due to high reviews and I can honestly say it was the right choice. She met all my expectations. I always received emails and call backs whenever I left a message within appropriate time . Anne knows her work from bottom up and she will set u straight forward from day one!! She is very professional and is sorrounded by great stuff ( Jasmine and Melissa ) . I wish nothing but the BEST for this law firm and if your reading this review and need help undergoing an immigration process THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO.

    Can't say enough FAVORABLE things about Ms. Kennedy.  After she came highly recommended by both a former Immigration Judge and by a former Assistant Prosecutor, I consulted with and hired her.
    My husband's Immigration case was complicated, but it did not deter Ms. Kennedy from filing two separate Writ of Habeas Corpus in Southern District Court to address his illegal detention. 
    Ms. Kennedy has a STRONG yet Light Spirited personality that helps relieve the legal burdens from her clients to her expertise.
    We found her direct and straight forward style of communication to be rewarding because it further prepared us for the legal battles.  Ms. Kennedy and her staff kept us well informed during the process.  

    Ms. Kennedy's BOLD & UNFLINCHING Legal Strategies are worth every dollar!

    We highly recommend Ms. Kennedy for your legal affairs.  We have already recommended her to a few of my husband's associates and at least one has already retained her services.

  • Amazing attorney, deserves well beyond 5 stars

    Posted by Amber

    Ms. Kennedy has been my attorney now for 5 years. I hired her back in 2011, when I needed an attorney that didn't play games, like the one that i fired before her. Anne definitely does not play games. She has been very straight forward through every process we have been through: divirce, child custody, modification and mediations. Her staff are great as well, and remeber you by name when you call. She has known my case inside out, every time I have needed her. I love that she is very blunt, even in the court room. I remeber back in 2011, she went to question my ex about contradicting order he file pro se at a prior court hearing. He was only wanting to pay $50 for 2 children. She questioned him about his lifestyle and then asked if he was a made-man! The judge found him intensionally underemployed. Recently we went to mediation, I walked out with WAY more than a judge would grant in trial and didn't budge on some issues that needed addressed. Thanks to Ms Kennedy and her knowledge of my case and how the family court system works! She didn't play games then either when the opposing parties were trying to. I can only give her a 5 star rating, she deserves well beyond that.

  • Tremendous Immigration Help

    Anne has been an excellent attorney and consultant to me helping bring my South African wife to the US. She has given us invaluable information and guidance through the mounds of forms and processes involved with everything from walking through customs at the airport to work permits and ultimate US citizenship. We rely on her expertise/experience and have thus far enjoyed a smooth transition.

    Anne's helped our family in a couple of situations. First time was to close out my father's estate. The second time she helped set up custody terms and conditions for my son. In both instances she was very helpful. Her rates were amazing. I appreciate her honesty and her upfront approach. She is very strategic and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend her. In fact, I did to one of my closest friends!

    Mrs. Kennedy was straightforward, genuine, and extremely helpful with our issue. We felt in good hands and she made us feel comfortable. Her rates are more than reasonable, and her advice was exactly the perspective we were hoping to access. I plan to retain Mrs. Kennedy in the future whenever I should need legal counsel again.

  • Experience, Quality, Integrity...Anne Kennedy, A Great Lawyer

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    Anne Kennedy has represented me in Civil Litigation and in Family Court. I have had great outcomes and success in both areas with Anne as my attorney. I have found Anne to be extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the law. Anne did a tremendous job in communicating with me as the client and explaining to me what was occurring and what to expect during the litigation process. It can be an overwhelming time, and Anne did a fabulous job with time management to keep my costs low and really address the concerns that I had and deal with the areas in the case that were important to me. Anne has a powerful presence and will fight for what you want to accomplish but at the same time will let you know what you can expect from the judges and jurors and is great at managing your expectations. She knows the law and what battles can be won. This helps with cost as well. From personal experience, I know Anne will always do everything possible to win for her client, she did for me. Overall, I have found Anne to have the utmost integrity, incredible experience, a wonderful and helpful office staff, and an incredible understanding of the law and how the court system works. All of these wonderful attributes, I believe, allows Anne to represent her clients incredibly well. I would recommend Annes's services to anyone. I consider her a friend and a great lawyer.

  • horrible experience

    1.0 star

    Posted by Elisabeth

    i typically don't ever do bad reviews but i wouldn't ever want anyone to go through the experience i went through with Mrs. Kennedy. She was an absolute nightmare to work with, i could never get in touch with her on updates on my case. I would call her office only to get a rude response from her staff or told Mrs. Kennedy would call me back when she got in the office and to never hear back. When it would come to her actually appearing to represent me she would always have a higher priory case to handle. She would be out of the state days before my hearing and when she wanted to talk about my case i had to constantly repeat my self about my case when she already had all the information or she would take different calls or start talking to someone else while i was talking to her. When i finally decided to terminated her as my lawyer i was fed up..... since the day before my mediation she called me at 2pm to tell me she wouldn't be able to attend and she would be sending either someone else or have to reschedule, this truly was an ongoing issue the communication and the no shows. i would be much more understanding if i was told this information maybe 2 days before mediation not less than 24 hours.Its very disappointing since i choose Anne due to all her great reviews unfortunately she was not what i expected at all. please look around before you come to her law firm.

    Anne Elise Kennedy’s response: “It is unfortunate to read a review like this. I have been practicing law for more than 10 years, and I have had extraordinarily good client satisfaction. I value the attorney-client privilege- even in cases where, as here, it is arguably waived. Nevertheless: Expectations must be realistic in an attorney-client relationship. I have a strong personality. I fight for my clients. I do not tolerate nonsense. I am known for "telling it like it is." My clients appreciate this. There are times that a case may be reset. With 4 million people in Harris County, Court dockets are crowded. A case involving allegations of child abuse, for example, may be given a higher priority on the Court's docket than other cases, forcing a reset of others. This is the reality of the courthouse. There are also times that I am not immediately available. This can be very upsetting, especially for those who do not handle stress well. The easiest way to deal with this, however, is to convey, politely, to my office staff, what the concern is. An email or text is also great. Family cases are stressful. It can be a long and difficult process. I really do understand that. But if my office staff is abused, cursed at, hung up on, or subjected to a tirade, it will NOT be tolerated by me. I will speak with a client about such behavior, and that may result in a client's decision to "terminate" me and decide that I am a "nightmare" to work with.”
  • Child support

    Anne gave me great advice about proceeding on my custody case. On my first consultation, she gave me more than enough information than any other attorney I consulted with. I was able to see my children more than just every other weekend. She was very tough and aggressive in defending my rights in court. I definitely recommend her to any other father out there trying to get reasonable child support and visitation for their children.
