Lois is a long time friend, my attorney, teacher, and coworker. We need to file bankruptcy, and she stayed up late in her office, with us filing it. It was an urgent, needed today, type after case. As I need an income, she contracted me as her administrative assistant. She taught me everything I needed to do. Patiently. I have ADHD. She has helped me grow so much. Since I worked with her I know, all the time and effort she puts in for her clients. We worked past midnight several nights. As she is in court all day most of the week. I have seen her do, several legal cases at reduced rates, make payments, even free. I highly recommend her, for all types of cases.

Lois has handled several matters for our family through the years and we have always been satisfied with her work. She was especially kind and helpful when my elderly Mother needed help.
I would highly recommend her.

Mrs. Carlisle was/is very proactive with her work on our case. She has enough knowledge of laws and experience regarding child custody and divorce that she has not wasted our time with any filing or extra paperwork. We have been confident in her decisions and have been very impressed with they way those decisions have panned out. Attention to detail and patience are her strongest qualitlies.

I endorse this lawyer. I know personally that she puts everything into her clients' cases. She seeks benefits for her clients often times to her own detriment, meaning that often times she is venturing in to areas of first impression before the bankruptcy court. Cases of first impression require alot of time, research, brief writing, and arguments before the bankruptcy court. If you really want to know how monumental her efforts are, then ask one of the Chapter thirteen judges in Jefferson County for their impression of her as a bankruptcy attorney. Those judges are Judge Cohen, Judge Bennett, and Judge Mitchell. She puts in long hours to get the maximum benefit for her cleints and is definetely one of the best lawyers that you a debtor could have in their corner when trying to make it through their court process

I have used Lois for almost the past 20 years for multiple reasons, from Workers Comp to Real Estate. She has always been there for me when I have needed her, even for advice. I have never asked a question that she did not have an honest answer for. It may not have been the one I was hoping for but regardless it was honest and straight up. She has never one time pretended to produce miracles like others have and I can appreciate that. She has always went above and beyond to help when she really did not have to. I have never experienced any regret from using her and will not hesitate to use her again. I can not only say that I am proud to have her in my corner but honored as well. Thank you Lois !!!

Lois was wonderful... she was very intellgent, knowledgable, and informative. She took time to listen to what we had to say, and to understand our problems. She gave sound advice and instruction, and followed through with consummately professional performance in court. She came prepared, and with an enthusiastic attitude, and kept us informed about what was happening at every step of the way...I felt completely confident and at ease in her hands. Ms. Carlisle is very good at what she does; I wouldn't want to use anyone else, and I would readily recomend her to others...

I just walked into Lois's office one day with no appointment. She sat down immediately and we talked about my financial problems. I showed her my binders of bills and receipts. After talking to her about my option...I decided to file chapter 13. Any questions I have had...she has always responded in a timely manner. Truth be told I have contacted her after hours & weekends. She has always been there. I have referred several people to her because of her professionslism and her caring nature.

I have known Lois for well over 15 years. As a friend, a person couldn't ask for a better one. She is a top notch attorney and always has time for me and any and all questions I have for her. She has handled several cases for me and my family and I have nothing but respect for this lady. I hold her in the highest regard. She is involved in her community and is a well rounded human being.

Mrs. Carlisle was very helpful to me and my son on a couple of different occasions. She explained our options and was very supportive in the choices we made. She was present at any court ordered appearances and pleasant and helpful to us at a time when knowledge of the law was crucial to a beneficial outcome for our case. She, at all times, was more concerned with the outcome of our case and never pushed any financial issues. As a matter of fact, she bent over backwards to help us work around limited funds and was very patient with our payment plan. I would recommend Mrs. Carlisle to friends and family in need of legal advice without hesitation.

I have been using Lois as a lawyer for many years. She is outstanding. Despite the fact that she is very busy, as all good lawyers are, she (and Terry) have handled all matters I have entrusted to her on time, under budget, and with great results. All in all, she is great.
