Awesome team
Kindra helped me with a contract I needed her to review for me with a business I'm seeking to purchase in Arizona. I checked out several attorneys for the same purpose, but chose Kindra because of her assistant Lisa. Lisa was professional and a had a great personality. Kindra was informative professional and provided me with just the advise I needed to hear.

Top Notch Law Firm
I hired Kindra to handle a personal, family issue in early 2017, and she and her team were excellent to work with. They did a great job for us, and cared not just about the legal aspect, but also the personal impact the matter had on our family. I would highly recommend Kindra for any personal or business matter; she proved to be a valuable resource.

Professional, Exceptional and Above the Rest
I have used Kindra and her team for several services including establishing my wealth advisory firm. She took the time to learn about my goals and aspirations as well as review my different options and ultimately recommend the best way to structure my business to achieve my goals. Her advice and guidance is truly valued as it is very hard to find someone who cares about her clients as much as she does in her field. I have recommended several of my own business clients to Kindra. I highly recommend Kindra for all your business needs!

Not like other lawyers
I worked with Kindra and her team for 4 long years on a complexed litigation case. We didn't win every decision, as the case moved along, but she worked very hard to look out for my family's best interest. I would highly recommend her. The first law firm I worked with was given a budget of $3,000 a month and billed me $15,000 for 3 months in a row and then threatened to sue me! Kindra is not like other lawyers.

Effective Attorney
Ms. Deneau completed a settlement with a Scottsdale business when I was unable to make any progress on my own. She kept me updated with all movements in my civil suit and was very fair with her pricing.

Great Job!
Kendra assisted me in setting up two LLC's and a Federal Trademark. It was a pleasant experience to deal with a lawyer that was up front and honest about pricing and scenarios. Kendra was a great communicator and was very informative. I found Kendra thru another acquaintance that had highly recommended her as well. I would like to pass on the recommendation . Kendra is a great choice!

Kindra Deneau
I am very thankful that I chose to use Kindra Deneau as my attorney for several different legal issues.

She knew what to do when, and has an ability to approach uncomfortable or stressful situations with tact and professionalism. These abilities helped me to feel confident that I was in good hands and that Kindra had my best interest as top priority. Overall, my legal issues came out favorable and I am very happy with Kindra's legal services.

Poor Quality Consultation
I came with a concerning case for a consultation, and this lawyer behaved unprofessionally and was disengaged. She left our meeting multiple times to take care of other matters, my case file wasn’t read, and she never addressed the actual legal summary of what was going on. I had to fish for answers and wasn’t provided clear options. These are the reasons why I chose not to hire her.
