Dawn Renken is by far the best attorney I have ever hired. Dawn worked hard and won custody of my 2 girls for me. Dawn was tactical, perfectly prepared and dominate in court over the course of 10 + appearances. Dawn's courtroom prowess is undeniable as she was able take on 4 different attorneys over the course of 2 years and win. Dawn is professional and straight forward in direction to her clients so that they know what to expect and how to navigate the legal process. If your are looking for a tough, smart, agile and dominate lawyer....look no further. Hire Dawn!

I hired Dawn out of my search in Avvo and I was not disappointed. She not only knows the law in Texas like the palm of her hand, but most importantly knows the Courts in Harris County, the judges, and the procedures very well. She's a master of the rules of engagement in front of the judge and in my case practically destroyed the opposing counsel (politely and professionally) in Court proceedings. She's also very personable and fun to be around. My divorce case was handled expeditiously and successfully beyond my expectations. I strongly recommend you hire Dawn to represent you.

First let me say...do not go into a divorce without your own attorney!!! I almost waited too long to hire Dawn. While on the phone, she pulled the information on the courthouse records she told me to get in as soon as I could that afternoon. It wasn't what was stated in the paperwork it was the ambiguous terms that were used.
Dawn is direct, aggressive, very busy which sometimes makes her hard to reach and a darn good negotiator. She knows her stuff. Don't go see her if you want a shrink...go to her if you want to be well represented. Make sure your expectations are realistic and you will do well.
The "friendly" divorce paperwork was full of open ended statements that would have cost me more than my legally fair share. With that being said she warned me right from the beginning that we are now negotiating a business transaction not a friendly settlement. You can go back to friendly after the divorce is final.
You have to take care of your interests and Dawn will do that for you in legalese if you let her. Sometimes you wonder where she is going in her logic... but just sit back, watch and listen...she knows what she is doing. I think if I had been as aggressive as she suggested I may have done better...but I couldn't let go of the relationship. Remember if you are enlisting the help of an attorney (Dawn)...your relationship is over...so let her get down to business.
She is very good in mediation. She understands how to effectively work through the process. She should since she offers mediation services in her practice.
I think the most impressive thing and the sign of a well respected attorney is when we went to the courthouse (unfortunately we had to go), she was known by many of the court employees, officials and other attorneys that were waiting for their time slot.
If you are reading this I am sorry you are having to go through it...but I think Dawn is a good choice. By the way she was recommended to me by another satisfied client.
