She's the best
Renee Kennedy has been an absolute life saver for me. I called for an initial consultation back in June of 2022 and didn’t hire her right off the bat, but she was there to listen and help me know my options. About a month later, things were turning south between my Ex and me and I needed to hire a divorce lawyer to file fast! I called back Renee out of the blue and she and her team immediately went into action and filed for divorce that night! Renee has all the qualities you want in a lawyer. She is smart, personable, caring, responsible, efficient, and communicates! I doubt I will ever find a lawyer half as efficient as she and her team. It truly has been such a delightful experience working with Renee. Renee cares about her clients and will do absolutely everything in her power to get what you need and deserve. I was in an extreme emergency situation when she dropped everything, drove out of her way to the courthouse, filed a restraining order and got it served to my Ex that night. She has proven her worth time and time again. She has been better prepared than the opposing counsel each time we’ve gone to court. She has won on my behalf time and time again. After the temporary orders hearing, I got primary custody of my children, I am in the martial residence, my Ex must pay me child support and more. I have gotten more than I could have even dreamed when I filed for divorce. Trust me, you want to hire Renee to represent you. You will not be disappointed.

Straightforward and passionate
HIGHLY recommended. Renee and her team were in the trenches with me for two years. I'm so grateful for the constant communication, support, and guidance I received. Renee genuinely cared and took the time to explain strategy and all things legal that I didn't understand. Renee will fight for you and isn't afraid to stand up to anyone. She and her team are extremely reliable, responsive, and supportive. They were the silver lining of a very terrible experience, and I recommend Renee to anyone who is ready to stand their ground and fight. I got primary custody, and also got to keep my 401k and house. So thankful for Renee.

Highly Effective Attorney!!
I wish 10 stars was possible for Rene Kennedy! Whenever you have to seek guidance from an attorney, it’s usually not a pleasant experience. However, from the very first call to Renee, my mind was put at ease that everything is going to be handled appropriately. Renee is aggressive, kind, thorough, and hands down the best Attorney I’ve ever worked with in my life. She will prioritize your needs and always advise you on the best option to achieve your desired goal. Also, I’ve never met an attorney that gives you their cell phone number and communicates seven days a week. Truly amazing! Renee Kennedy is a true gem within the legal profession, and I will recommend her to as many people as possible. Thank you, Rene!

The best
I’ve personally hired Renee for a divorce and modification, as well as my sister (divorce) and her family (modification), multiple times over the past nine years. All legal matters have been handled quickly and painlessly. Recently, I found myself needing family law legal help again. Renee was immediately on board to help me when I called. When I say immediately, I mean immediately. I received several emails from her with paperwork and documents within 30 minutes. She was on my case like a bulldog. I was in a fight and once again she was totally there for me. So much so that at times I wondered when she rested or slept. Renee and her team had me in mediation and a deal signed within a week. You read that right—within one week. She wasted no time and worked at lightening speed which was absolutely amazing. Renee and her team also kept me up to date in real time as to what was going on with my case. Never once did I have to call her and ask “where we were at on the case” because I already knew. If one day you wake up and find yourself in a family law legal battle and need a real bulldog of a lawyer, call her. Renee and her team will guide you through every step of the way to a great result in no time. Mark my words.

Amazing Lawyer!!!
Renee Kennedy is the best attorney in Texas! She's extremely efficient, reliable and gets the job done quickly. I switched attorneys in the middle of two cases and hired Renee both for a Motion for Enforcement as well as a Modification action. I switched because I wanted to speed up the process and have an attorney that would communicate with me. My ex has historically been an absolute nightmare to deal with. However, Renee Kennedy amended the pleadings, went to court appearances, and now has him him under her complete control. Needless to say, I got what I wanted and we ended up settling. If you are looking for an attorney who will get you results and start immediately, hire Renee Kennedy. She literally is the best.

Tough and fights for you!
Renee got the case filed against me dismissed, stopping the other party dead in her tracks. Renee was always there to answer my calls and texts, and her staff was also on top of everything. You need answers and results? Renee will make sure you get those, no matter who she needs to run through! Tough, firm and straight to the point!

Awesome
I recommend Renee, she fought hard fort my case it was highly contested. Renne went above and beyond to get me what I needed, she is very punctual getting back with me at all times, no matter the hour. I can not thank her enough for what she has done. I essentially get my son half the time and Rennee managed to get the judge to order it around my Dupont schedule. No one was named primary, this is an outstanding result and a win.

Great Attorney!
Renee Kennedy did an awesome job negotiating a settlement in which I made bank. I got to keep a majority of the community estate. My ex got only a fraction of what he could have thanks to Renee’s tough negotiation skills and litigation strategy. She and her team are very thorough and knowledgeable, and did everything they could to make the process easy for me.

Astute & Aggressive
I sifted through months of research before choosing Renee to represent me. Renee is impressively astute and aggressive (in a good way), & yet still embodied the strategy and compassion necessary for navigating the family law case I entrusted to her. We discussed the outcome I hoped for and she secured every item we discussed - I focused on moving forward and Renee ensured our case would not hinder me from doing so. Not only was Renee a pleasure to work with but her staff is equally as knowledgeable and thorough. I highly recommend Renee & will retain her to represent me in future legal proceedings.

Amazing Attorney Who Will Fight For You
Renee was kind, understanding, and fast moving when I needed legal representation for an intimidating family law matter. I would not trust anyone else with my family law matters in all of Texas. She was always on point and always explained everything to me in a comprehensible and considerate way. She and her staff are fantastic! Renee really, really fought for me. I am so grateful to her and her staff for all they did for me.

Hands down, without a doubt, hire her
Divorce is never easy, and if you’re reading this you’ve probably already made the decision to leave. To do so, you need to find the best attorney who will make sure the Courts are fair and just. If you retain Renee Kennedy that’s exactly who you’ll get: an attorney who is among the absolute best. She is straightforward, honest, and realistic, and someone fierce when it comes to dealing with your ex or their attorney. Nothing shocks her. She’s dealt with all of it. If you hire Renee, she and her staff will make sure every ‘i' is dotted and every ’t’ is crossed. Perfection is what you put in front of a judge, and with Renee, it will always be flawless. She’ll prep you before going to court so you know exactly what to expect. Renee will go toe to toe with the other side, and you can take your heartache to your counselor (if you have any left!) once Renee’s job is done and you’re free again. Hands down, without a doubt, hire her.

CPS Case
Renee helped us get through a CPS allegation brought on by a vengeful ex. She responded to my initial request very quickly and was always available to answer questions. She knew exactly what to do and got CPS to close the case against us finding we did nothing wrong. We would recommend anyone who is wrongfully accused through CPS use her. We would also hire Renee again.

excellent
I would like to highly recommend Ms. Kennedy for anyone needing a criminal attorney. She is outstanding. From the moment I contacted Ms, Kennedy about my daughter's case, she went above and beyond with her time to explain the process every step of the way. She argued the law for us, and presented a clear, thorough and persuasive packet to the grand jury regarding the criminal charges against my daughter. After reviewing the packet Ms. Kennedy put together for the grand jury, they no billed my daughter finding the charges against her were not warranted. I cannot speak more highly of Ms. Kennedy for her professionalism, quality work product and caring attitude. We would not have gotten the result we did without her knowledge and input.

Great divorce attorney!
I was referred to Renee when I began going through a divorce. She immediately made time to consult with me, and I knew within minutes that she was the fighter that my children and I needed. My divorce was extremely complicated and full of insane ups and downs, but Renee was there at all hours of the day when I needed guidance and advice. She worked rapidly and thoroughly to ensure the safety of both myself and my children, and made me feel like we were her main priority. She was honest and up front with me about every situation and gave me sound legal counsel and representation throughout the entire process. In the end, we managed to finalize my divorce faster than any of us thought possible given the circumstances and came to an agreement that was best for everyone involved. She came through for me and I was named the sole managing conservator of my children, and I couldn't be happier with the way she represented me.

Highly Recommended!
When I knew it was time to seek legal counsel for my divorce, I didn’t even know where to start. I found Renee through a referral, age age immediately put my mind at ease. She was incredibly flexible and transparent throughout the process, and she did a good job of always answering my questions and concerns promptly. Divorce is never easy, and rarely does either party really “win”, but Renee was able to fight for me and I truly feel I got a favorable and successful outcome. Renee made herself available at all times and treated me like her only client (although I knew she had many other engagements and clients during the process). Her communication was strong and effective, and also convenient (text/email/call). At the end of the day, I felt respected and cared about as her client, and I could tell her number one concern was making sure I was satisfied. If you are looking for an attorney for any sort of family legal issues, Renee is definitely a great choice!!

Responsive and honest!
I hired Renee to help me with a custody matter. Renee was open and honest with me from the onset and helped set expectations for me on the expected outcome. Renee is very communicative, and always answered the phone when I called her. She fought aggressively for me during mediation and helped me to achieve the strongest win possible given the circumstances. Because of Renee's experience as an attorney, she was spot on with her predicted outcomes every step of the way. While she's willing to offer her professional advice, she also leaves every decision up to her client in order for them to feel satisfied. She's willing to fight for whatever you ask for, so I'd recommend using Renee if you want a strong attorney on your side.

Divorce
I reached out to Renee Kennedy regarding my divorce. Having to get divorced can be very overwhelming and in the beginning I wasn’t sure where to start or in what direction to go in. After speaking with Renee, she was able to put my mind at ease and helped me through the divorce process. She was able to take a difficult situation and make it look easy. Renee is very kind, firm, understanding and very very quick to respond. Renee and her team were able to finalize my divorce quicker than I would have imagined. I would recommend Renee to anybody needing the assistance of a divorce attorney. At the end of the day I got everything I was looking for out of the divorce and was very happy with the result. You can rest assured that Renee and her team will always have your best interest in mind! 5/5 would recommend

Strong, smart, strategic, and effective
Renee helped me achieve exactly the outcome I was aiming for in my divorce and custody case. She was confident that she could win me primary parental rights for my daughter and child support, despite it generally being more difficult for fathers in Texas. I told her I wanted everything equal - completely 50/50, where neither parent was primary, nor paid child support to the other parent. Renee kept my wishes as her top priority and made it happen. When you are going to bat at a baseball game, you bring any lawyer. When you are going into a battle, you bring a fighter like Renee. She is extremely thorough and detail oriented, and she is aggressive and full of energy. She will tell you exactly what she is thinking, and sometimes it might be hard for you to hear, but she will be straightforward and straight to the point and provide the best advice. Her communications are often very short. You might feel they are even curt. But remember that her time is your money, and I realized early on that she was always doing her best to minimize the cost to me by keeping her words brief and efficient. In the end, I spent much less overall than my ex, even though I had worked with Renee for a longer period of time. Renee is strong, smart, strategic, and effective. I highly recommend Renee for any divorce or custody matter.
