Personal Statement by the Divorce Lawyer Lisa Beth Older:

I am a New York Divorce and custody lawyer handling complex and cases. I was admitted to practice law in 1986 and have extensive trial, court, mediation, and as for appellate experience I won both appeals that I did in New York.   I am respected amongst my peers and legal community.   I am well published and had my own television show. I appear as a television legal analyst on many stations at the station's request when I feel it is important. I am very thankful for all of kind reviews I have received and am very satisfied with AVVO's service. Feel free to contact me about your service needs in the areas of TV analyst, peer review, legal services and representation in custody matters, criminal, divorce and personal injury law. I have an excellent record in client satisfaction. I am a dedicated public servant and I am an active member of the political process. I love what I do as a lawyer and I enjoy the arts, reading and painting.
