Smart, fair and honest are the words that best describe my experience thus far with Denise Kuhlman. Once I was in the unfortunate situation of needing an attorney, I knew that I wanted someone that was actually going to help dig me out of the hole that I created, not put me deeper into it. She exceeded my expectations. She not only knows her stuff, but she is willing to take the time to explain complicated matters until you thoroughly understand what is going on. She has truly been a lifesaver.
Denise was the best possible lawyer that I could have found for my case.
I am a Canadian and was a defendant in a bankruptcy/litigation case in the US, and In order to find someone to help me, I did a google search for lawyers in WA and found Denise's name, among others. Several mentioned they gave a free consultation but on sending emails to a few, I had only 2 responses, Denise's being one of them.
Denise called me and we had a lengthy first conversation after which she went over what she could do for me. She suggested the best way to proceed yet gave me some options, going over each one of them in detail. The amount of time involved was mentioned and the fee structure explained.
At every stage along the way Denise was professional and knowledgeable. She was easy to speak with and was kind and understanding of the situation, making me feel very hopeful of a positive outcome. She is a great listener and I was able to share my fears and anxiety without feeling I was being judged. Every phone call I made to her and every email sent, was responded to, if not in minutes, then by the end of the day. I was kept abreast of what was happening at every stage.
Denise managed to settle my case with huge success, something that would not have happened or been possible if I had continued on my own. I am extremely grateful and I would recommend Denise to anyone, without reservation.
I have known Ms. Kuhlman for over 15 years. She works in a very difficult field of law, and yet she establishes an empathic relationship with her clients. One of her strengths is her ability to move clients along their dissolution path expertly in a reasonable amount of time to achieve the greatest benefits for clients. Ms. Kuhlman shows great compassion for her clients' personal and/or business circumstances. Ms. Kuhlman is well versed in her areas of law, and executes a custom tailored strategy for each client. I referred several friends and business clients to Ms. Kuhlman over the years, and I have received great thanks and accolades for making the introduction. I recommend her highly to personal and business clients who have a need for expert guidance in bankruptcy, foreclosure, and/or business dissolution.
Denise guided me through my bankruptcy with skill, responsiveness, and non-judgment. From the time of our first conversation, I knew I had someone on my side who not only had the expertise and experience to guide me through, but who would actually listen to what I had to say. Denise always made me feel that I was important to her and that she would be there for me. She responded promptly to my many questions, took the time to listen to my fears and concerns, and was able to explain the process to me in a way that I could understand. I never felt like I was alone, and I never felt like I was "just another client". I cannot thank her enough, and I cannot recommend her enough. She has what it takes to get the job done!
During our lives, we have had the occasional instance where we needed to retain an attorney. Without exception, the lawyer him/herself turned out to be the negative part of the equation, not the issue itself as we might have expected.
From the moment we contacted Denise Kuhlman, we realized that this was going to be something different, something better than we might imagine. Every step of the way, Denise was on our side, responded to each and every question quickly, gave us the educated legal direction we needed in understandable, clear terminology, stood by us from beginning to end. She is so capable, so likable, and so approachable. No one wants to be involved in a legal issue, but to have Denise by our side made our experience infinitely better than we might have imagined. Thank you Denise!
