Thank You Diane 4/5/2017

I have had one divorce in my 62 years of life. There was no infidelity, no children, no one was "wrong", we just drifted apart and did not have the skills to keep it together at the time. There was anger, a lot of anger. My wife had hired a very aggressive attorney and was going for the jugular. I called a judge friend of mine and he recommended a very aggressive lawyer for me also. During the first and last meeting we had, the lawyer actually said "Don't worry, we will f... the b........" my stomach turned, i thought i was going to throw up in his office. I realized how out of hand and crazy it was to try to harm the best female friend i ever had in my life, my wife of nine years. I married her for several reasons and one being that she was such a wonderful woman, and still is. Unfortunately i felt we needed a divorce. I did not need to harm or destroy my wife nor did i need to drag out a long and costly fight. I expressed clearly Diane my needs and feelings which was that i needed protection from my wife's throat cutting attorney and i wanted a fair outcome with the least amount of damage to both parties. Although the judge was a bit of a weenie at times, Diane remained steadfast , sticking to principal and not getting lost in drawn out personality conflicts. She was earning more money than i was and did give me a bill at the end, it was not free nor cheap, and i did pay in United Staes Dollars. I am so eternally grateful to Diane for her service, especially in disregarding my temper flares during this painful process. She kept her sight on the goal, a fair divorce for both parties. She allowed our marriage to end with as minimal damage to all. Only through Diane was I capable of consummating a divorce from my best friend with the respect and aloha the relationship deserved........Thank You Diane more

Consultation - HW 3/23/2017

I met with Diane Ho a week or so ago and as soon as I met her I liked her! She put me at ease right away and from her knowledge I can move forward with my divorce hopefully, very soon. Mahalo Diane! more

Money Monger 8/31/2016

Ms. Ho has not changed. I used her years ago for my divorce and she was just as rude and insensitive as she is today. Back then, I thought her dollar by the minute...more like $20 by the minute was abhorrent. She would patronize me when I voiced my concerns and always check her bottom line.Thank God my ex didn't disagree much. She ouldnt drag out marriage as long as she wanted. If I could go back and change lawyers I would. The experience traumatized me for life. more

Divorce consultation 9/23/2015

I met with Diane on Monday with a lot of trepidation. She immediately put me at ease & started tackling the monetary issues. I found her very knowledgeable and professional. Diane was very realistic and in a nut shell - I'd recommend her services anytime! more

Motivated by greed! 6/28/2012

Her ability to befriend and litigate with other attorneys is unquestionable. However, her motivation driven by financial greed, will really jeopardize the financial stability of an already shattered family. She will not hesitate to take advantage of the vulnerability of the grieve that her client is enduring through the divorce proceedings and she will prolong a divorce process, so that she can make the maximum amount of money that she can. She will bill you for every call that she makes to you or on your behalf, regardless of how much time was spent, and she will try to take your case as many times as she can to court, so that she can bill you for her court appearances services (250.00 an hour). By the time you divorce is completed, she would have taken your savings account and your kids education fund. She won’t care. Her demeanor and arrogance towards her clients is one to be desired... You better off going through a paralegal service to file your divorce. Keep your money and give it to your children instead. more

Nasty 1/4/2012

Very unprofessional . Used dirty trick on the opponent side like TRO's, accusation, CPS involve if u have children. She don't care anything but money. Her cost would 40,000 dollars minimum for divorce. more

Professionalism Questioned 7/20/2010

I would never question her expertise or experience, and I am sure she is a good litigator. However, her professionalism as a business person is heavily questioned. Lawyers should "sell" themselves to potential clients, and her method of selling (during the initial consultation) is by: eating lunch, leaving the television on (baseball game was on, so go figure), having her clerks interrupt constantly, and taking "emergency" phone calls for many minutes at a time while keeping the potential client waiting. On the surface, this is considered rude and improper. Business wise, this is ignorant and (arguably) unethical. In all fairness, emergency phone calls should be handled urgently and efficiently, but a simple,"...sorry folks, but give me a few minutes to handle this situation..." would have been more than welcomed. After mentioning my more-than-fair concerns, she became offended and irate, and "kicked-us-to-the-curb". I mean, I could be wrong on this, but if someone charges two hundred somewhat dollars for an hour of consultation, shouldn't they offer their undivided attention? Or are lawyers held to a different standard? In my not-so-humble opinion, this was totally a lack of professionalism. Arrogance was (and probably IS) the defining characteristic of this attorney, and if someone was to ask me if I can recommend her services, I will say, "Nah, brah, us un-edumacated peeps is not good enuff for her...no mek enuff monies for her...". more

Good family law attorney 8/13/2005

Ms. Ho has been in practice on Maui for man years. She is well known for the work she has done, representing clients in family law matters. She is a good negotiator as well as an experienced litigator. She will do a good job of representing your needs, and of making sure the needs of any children are addressed. more
