Customer Reviews

About 10 years ago, I was extremely frustrated and stressed as I was going through a horrible divorce. It was clear that my interests needed to be protected and I needed a top notch attorney that I trusted. I met so many attorneys in search of one that I felt was right for myself, my son, and my situation. I was so disappointed by many for various reasons. Thankfully I came across Attorney Duell. It didn’t take long for me to realize that this was the attorney for me!!! Kim, without question, is extremely knowledgeable about the entire divorce process. That is clear after talking with her for only 10 minutes. Kim also possesses other qualities that I find to be important in a divorce attorney as she is confident, straight forward, kind hearted, honest, personable, on top of things, respect for her clients, and excellent in her field. Kim has excellent integrity. Of course I had to hire her. It was very important for me to find an attorney that was honest and had good morals and I found this in Kim. I’ve come across too many attorneys that have no problem telling their client to lie….Kim will not do this…Kim has faith in honesty, as I do. My divorce took 3 years to complete as my ex tried to play every game known to mankind. So, not only did I get to spend a lot of time with Kim, I got to see how she handled herself with other attorneys, judges, and everybody in the court. Kim is a take charge attorney. She will NOT be bullied by anyone and she will not let anyone bully you in her presence. I never had to question if Kim was working on my case. If she told me she was doing something, I knew she was doing it. She took some of the worries away. Kim will take control and will not back down to anyone…as I have witnessed her strength and taking charge of the situation. Kim knows when it’s time to be straightforward, take charge, do several things at once, question things, and when to pounce when someone is lying. Kim also knows when it’s time to be calm, compassionate and patient with her clients. As I was one of those that did need some compassion at times. Kim is also quite funny, which is much appreciated at certain moments.

I’ve kept in contact with Kim through the years. Now I find myself having to go back to court. Of course I called Kim Duell as she is the only attorney I trust. I am confident in her expertise, attention to detail, and extensive knowledge of the divorce process. I wouldn’t want anyone to represent me but Kim as she always has my best interests in mind.

I would recommend Kim to anyone going to the divorce process!!!! She is phenomenal!!!!

Attorney Kim Duell is a highly educated, experienced, take-charge attorney. I was divorced 11 years ago and had to go back to court recently on matters involving child support, visitation, and higher education. Attorney Duell proved herself invaluable in all aspects. I only wish I had been referred to her the first time.Her knowledge, outstanding leadership abilities, and critical thinking skills make her a first rate divorce attorney. I highly recommend

Attorney Duell with complete confidence!!!

Kim Duell is one of the very best lawyers in the state. She is extremely knowledgable, practical and proactive. In addition to her wisdom and professionalism, Attorney Duell is incredibly approachable. She has always been willing to listen, and takes time to understand as well as give advice and work with her clients and families in a way that is above and beyond nearly all others I have encountered in the field. Attorney Duell is actively involved with her clients, and commits with unprecedented dedication to all of the people and cases that she represents. She took time to truly listen to me, and consistently communicated with me as well as all others to make sure she was doing the very best job she could. There was never a time that I felt uninformed, or that Attorney Duell left me uneasy or without reply. Time after time again, she has responded to my emails and phone calls within hours with no excuses or exceptions, even in the midst of her vacations and personal life matters. Her dedication to my family and case was unwavering. The work that Attorney Duell dedicated to my case and represented us with I am forever grateful for. She was fair, thorough, honest, reliable and incredibly trustworthy. In a time of much turmoil and difficulty, having Attorney Duell represent us gave my family a sense of peace that we could trust she would get the job done and would do what was right. She handled our case with an unwavering balance of both a strong, powerful presence as well as a compassionate person who is capable of hearing the needs and best interest of all in the case, and providing advice and litigation that will allow for the best possible outcome for all involved given her decades of experience in the field. Attorney Duell is an extraordinary lawyer, and I can not speak highly enough of how she represents her clients. It is with personal experience and gratitude for the extraordinary ways that Attorney Duell has truly supported and defended with professionalism, compassion and dedication that I would strongly recommend her to anyone, and have put my trust in her with my own case. Attorney Duell is an incredible lawyer who has earned the trust and appreciation of countless, including myself, with her experience, proactive-approach and persistent dedication that truly make her one of the very best lawyers in the state, and entire field.

Kim is fantastic. I have used her in multiple times. She is extremely intelligent, hardworking and diligent. She doesn’t sugar coat things, and helps you understand all possible outcomes. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and in fact I have.
