100% DEVOTED TO FAMILY LAW

Review of Lori Blackwell
When I was served divorce papers, it took me by surprise. Though no marriage is perfect I thought after 18 years together my ex and I were in it for the long haul. I was blessed to be referred to Lori Blackwell through a friend. And from the very start, I knew and trusted Lori had my back. My ex claimed she was trying to be civil and nice. In reality, the way she had worded the original divorce filing my ex could have taken my daughters away to another state. Thank goodness I consulted Lori before signing anything. Lori took the time to explain all the legal verbiage in simple terms. Throughout the process, Lori was attentive, empathetic to my situation, courteous, professional, well organized, punctual, dedicated, a tough bull dog when needed, and above all looked out for the best interests of myself and my daughters. Lori was able to get my ex to agree to mediation terms, foregoing costly and prolonged divorce trial. Lori was able to ensure that I got joint custody of my daughters, they had to stay in Fort Bend County, ensured that the property division was fair & equitable, was knowledgeable on the intricacies of my military pension as related to the divorce, and ensured that I was able to retain some family land that I had inherited that had been in my family over 150 years. I am forever grateful to the service & legal advise of Lori and would recommend her to any man or woman going through divorce.

Exceptional
The father of my son sued me that the child is not his, after we already went to the court recently about custody and child support and he never even showed up. Loreen was quick to find solution and counter act and sue him back as she was very knowledgeable about all the laws, and family codes. Father of my son withdraw the suit and we won. I saw this to be a very quick, efficient almost aggressive approach. Will use her again and highly recommend.

It makes a big difference to have the right attorney in your Divorce support team!!
Divorce is never a pleasant process, but with the right attorney, it could be a lot less painless and costly. I was lucky to find and work with Loreen, who really cared about my best interests and yet was also very understanding of the complexity and delicacy of my co-parenting relationship, which helped finalize my Final Decree Agreement in the terms that both reserved financial security and set the right tone for the co-parenting journey. She could relate from the parenting perspectives which was a bonus. Her communication was swift, timely, precise, and professional. She knew when to put her foot down and when to be lenient. Being able to finalize my divorce swiftly meant I could shift my focus, energy, and mental capacity to more important matters such as preparing my child and tending to his needs through such turbulent times of change and rerouting my life. Thanks, Loreen!

Wish we would have found her sooner!
After using another lawyer and feeling like a constant bother and getting nowhere, I feel like she was a Godsend. I was dealing with a termination of parental rights/stepparent adoption case against my abusive ex husband who was incarcerated. Although incarcerated, his family had unlimited financial resources to fight us. They hired an attorney that was part of the State Legislature in order to get legislative (any any other possible) continuances granted. This case took two years. In those year, Lori was a constant source of not only legal knowledge and professionalism, but also comfort. You could tell she was invested in this case. It was personally important for her to fight for what was right. I truly believed she saved our son's life. She kept him from a violent criminal and gave him a sense of security that he so desperately needed. We are forever grateful for Lori and I highly recommend her.

Cannot say enough about Lori and her team!
I cannot say enough about Lori. Getting a divorce was not what I envisioned for me and my family, especially with three young kids, but going through it with Lori as my attorney made a daunting process into one that was actually bearable. When I first contacted Lori, I did not even know if I wanted to go through with the divorce yet. She answered all my questions and was professional, kind, and not pushy at all, which is something I really appreciated. Months later, I contact her again after I made my decision. She listened to me and what I wanted, patiently answered my many questions, advised, and advocated for me the entire time. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the entire process, and in the end, I ended up with not only the terms I wanted, but felt like I also gained a new friend in the process. Thank you and your team, Lori!

THE BEST EVER
There are no words in the English language that can express the value of having Lori on our case. We were going through a nasty termination of parental rights case, while optimistic it felt impossible that we would get everything we wanted out of the case. Lori poured her heart, mind, and soul into our family against a blank check defendant, and she totally wrecked shop. I can honestly say without a doubt if it were not for Lori Blackwell, I would not have a son, that I have raised since he was three years old, with my last name. In short just hire Lori, she is the best ever.

Superior Family Attorney
If you find yourself in an unfortunate divorce situation, I highly recommend Lori. With her expert counsel, we worked extremely well together to craft and accomplish a plan, as she guided me (including a little therapy at times) through the complexities of the process. Despite the many horror stories I’ve heard from others that have been through it, I walked away confident the settlement was fair and equitable given my circumstances.

Modification of Parent-Child Relationship
I hired Lori to help me modify standard orders put in place by Harris County. From the beginning we knew this was going to be a difficult task. Lori stayed persistent through the entire process. With her knowledge and experience she helped me win my case. Lori was very professional all the while acknowledging my concerns and genuinely caring about my child's well-being. She kept me up to date with filings and hearings and made sure my questions were always answered. During such an emotional, stressful time it is hard to process any type of information. Lori explained everything with patience and understanding. I would highly recommend hiring Ms. Loreen Blackwell.

Great Attorney!
In 2020 my wife and I decided to divorce. During that moment of feeling lost, Loreen was there to help me pick up and move forward. Loreen was precise, professional, sharp, tough, and friendly all at the right moments. She helped me settle my estate and put me in a strong position to continue to move forward. I do not wish for anyone to be put into that position, but if you are, Loreen is hands down the best for the job. I would highly recommend her professionalism and leadership. Thank you for all of your hard work!

Lori Blackwell is our Angel
Lori Blackwell came highly recommended to us by several trusted acquaintances. Amid an incredibly difficult contested stepparent adoption case, Lori always communicated with us in a compassionate and respectful way, which we desperately needed. Lori, along with Lennea, and the entire team at Hendershot, Cannon & Hisey, were beyond generous towards our family with their time and thoughts towards our case. In the courtroom, Lori is confident, extremely knowledgeable and well-spoken and it was a privilege to stand beside her through our successful adoption trial. I can wholeheartedly offer my recommendation of Lori Blackwell as a trusted source of legal counsel that will work hard for favorable outcomes.

Excellent and professional
Ms. Blackwell recently represented me in a family lawsuit. I researched a number of family law firms in Harris County, TX. In particular, I was looking for a family lawyer specializing in complicated property division. After narrowing down my search to a dozen family lawyers specializing in property division, I spoke with each of them on the phone and Ms. Blackwell stood out as the one with the best knowledge in this area. I decided to choose Ms. Blackwell to help me with the case, and that turned out to be a great decision. Ms. Blackwell is professional, very knowledgeable, and very responsive. I highly recommend her for anyone in need of a good family lawyer.

Divorce Case
Loreen really cared about my situation and worked hard to achieve my goal. I was very pleased with the final outcome.

Superb legal counsel!
I employed Lori through KHC and I couldn't be more pleased with her services. I was over 3000 miles away from her and she made my experience as pleasant as it could possibly be. I needed changes to my divorce decree, and she was very knowledgeable on the whole process and actually fixed what needed fixed plus exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend her services for all matters, very pleasant to talk to and seems like a good person overall, very down to earth.
