    I endorse Lisa. I have had the opportunity to see Lisa interact with her clients for the past few years and I have been very impressed with the devotion and personal attention she gives to each one of her clients. She goes the extra mile for her clients, meets and speaks with them personally and that kind of client attention separates Lisa from other lawyers. Lisa always strives to learn and become a better lawyer every day. If you are looking for a lawyer that will treat you and your case with the respect you deserve, you can't do any better than hiring Lisa.

    Lisa is well respected in the legal community, and I would recommend her for any criminal defense matter. She is very attentive to her clients, and is willing to take cases throughout the metro area. This means she is familiar with different prosecutors and court personnel, and this can obviously be helpful when representing a defendant. I wouldn't hesitate to refer a friend or client to Lisa.
