    • I recommend Lisa Wells.

    During my legal process, I was shopping around for different lawyers. I began my search online looking at profiles, resumés, and career highlights. My first choice was Lisa, followed by two others. The next morning I went to Lisa's office to briefly talk and schedule an appointment. She was not there but I left my contact information. From there I contacted the other lawyers on my list. I received a call from one, had a meeting the same day, and was almost set to hire them as my lawyer. During the meeting, Lisa called my phone and I decided to contact her directly after the meeting with the other lawyer. She answered the phone immediately, gave her opinion of the case immediately, and offered to meet with me ASAP.

    When I arrived at her office minutes later, Lisa was courteous, professional, knowledgable, and reassuring. She began working on my case without asking for a retainer. Something as little as calling the officer in charge of the case, another lawyer wanted thousands of dollars, not Lisa. When it came time to paying for a retainer it was a lot cheaper by far. Lisa contacted me when she received information on the case immediately. If I had any questions I could contact her by phone or e-mail, and she would reply in a very reasonable amount of time. She would also build a rapport with me, asking about different things going on in my life and would make small talk. While this may not be important to some; I viewed it as her viewing me as more than just a pay day and it helped ease the stress. Lisa used to be a prosecution lawyer, and she used that expertise, resources, and connections to find information and put pressure on the case. Ultimately the case was dismissed.

    It was a very stressful time in my life. However, Lisa worked very hard and helped get the case dismissed ASAP. She is a very busy woman with a radio show on 700 WLW, and other cases going on (as evident by the paperwork in her office). However, there is a reason for that. It is because she is the best lawyer around. Even with that workload she responds fast, works hard, and gets things done. It was the best decision choosing her as my lawyer. I would recommend Lisa to anyone and I will recommend her to anyone that needs a lawyer.

    • I recommend Lisa Wells.

    I was listening to Lisa Wells on 700 WL W before the holiday season. Talking about law-enforcement cracking down on DU I drivers. Her recommendation said to tell the policeman with all due respect sir I don't want to say or do anything without contacting my attorney. That stuck in my mind. I got pulled over after having a couple of beers and did exactly what she said and refused to take the breathalyzer test. Then I was charged with DUI. I thought my world was over because I have a class a CDL with hazardous material endorsement. after our fourth court appearance the judge declared a mistrial. And I was charged with disobeying a traffic signal. My license were reinstated along with my CDL. I couldn't believe just what happened in court. I had been thinking of losing my job, higher insurance rates and everything that comes along with having a DUI. It's saved me from a lot of embarrassment for I am a 58-year-old well respected churchgoing Man. Lisa treated me with the utmost respect and I would recommend her to anyone.

    As a former client of Lisa’s I would like to express my gratitude to her in representing me in a difficult child custody case that went on for well over a year. I would without a doubt recommend her to anyone in need of legal counsel. She was extremely knowledgeable, savvy, professional and best of all accessible. In addition she has excellent presence in the court room! Throughout the length of this case she always made herself available for advise and solutions. She has my utmost confidence and I am so grateful for her help in a successful ending to my case.

    • I recommend Lisa Wells.
    • I hired Lisa 6-12 months ago.
    • Lisa handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was charged in Warren County Ohio for Felony 3 Failure to report a change of address as I am a Sexually Oriented Offender, (REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER), I was treated very poorly by the detectives and other police so I heard about Lisa Wells on the radio, and have been screwed by another attorney I was very skeptical about hiring another and not to mention I don't have allot of money. I called and talked to a man that started helping me named Tony, and he told me some things and assured me that I would be in good hands and I Talked with Lisa and worked some details out and the state kept putting things off and Lisa kept me in the loop spent allot of time making calls and the whole time never leaving me in the dark with anything this was my life in her hands, I would be doing more prison time. When the trial came Lisa was Brilliant, never missed a step caught the states witnesses in situations, and the detective got kinda startled but Lisa was sharp and fearless. You could tell her passion for the truth and well it paid off after only 2 hours into the trial it was over......NOT GUILTY, the judge said... I was so overwhelmed I did not even have to have any witnesses and the state had 3.... Lisa Wells is worth twice what she charges if not more I will have her help me in the future and NO other Attorney. .. Thank you so much Lisa thanks to you I get to see my new baby girl grow up and not from behind bars...

    • I hired Lisa 6-12 months ago.
    • Lisa handled my Juvenile matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I am writing my review anonymously due to the fact it involves my son who is a minor.

    I never thought that I would ever need an attorney for my juvenile son, but when the police show up at your house everything changes. My son was charged with importuning for sexting in Butler County. Which is a 2nd Degree Felony. So I started looking for one.

    I had heard Lisa on 700WLW and she sounded like she was an aggressive attorney and a woman that could get things done. I was so glad I called and I was right. She is an aggressive attorney and she got the job done. Ms. Wells did a great job for my son. She was on top of the case from beginning to end. She kept us informed on everything that was happening and everything that was going to happen. Lisa is a great attorney and if you need one she is the one to call.

    Thank you Lisa for doing a great job!!!!

    My lawyer Lisa Wells worked with me on my case involving assault on a police officer. Lisa is a very upfront honest lawyer who cared about me as a person throughout my whole trial. Lisa made this frustrating time of my life as comfortable as possible. She brought my felonious assault which I was charged for, down to a misdemeanor with no probation or any court cost.

    • I recommend Lisa Wells.
    • I hired Lisa 1-3 years ago.
    • Lisa handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was involved in a nasty contested domestic relations case in Hamilton County. I had wanted a divorce for over 6 years. In that time, I saw 4 very highly recommended attorneys. The first 3 attorneys offered little advice and were stumped by my complex case. One attorney was a partner at his firm and suggested I try and "work it out." I couldn't believe how I was dismissed and actually advised to stay in a very unhealthy environment for me and my children.
    Lisa told me up front what the process would involve. I was already legally separated and she knew exactly how to proceed with filing for the divorce. She listened to my concerns with parenting time and custody and was honest about possible outcomes. She kept my children's safety, mental and emotion state in mind when negotiating parenting time. Lisa also was honest when she told me how the court process works. She never promised anything she couldn't deliver. For example, she gave me the Hamilton County courts usual turn around time on mediation scheduling and court processing. Although I wanted the divorce proceeding to be quick she was correct about how long it took and the amount of money I was looking at investing to get the needed results. When I was anxious about an upcoming court date or mediation appointment, she would tell me specifically what to expect. I had never been in a court room in my life until my divorce. It can be a scary experience, but she was with me every step of the way. She never over charged me or called just to talk to run up my bill. In fact, she did the opposite. She would email or text me if the information I needed wasn't crucial to the case just to save me money. Divorce can be scary especially when there are children involved. I was used to staying at home with my kids. She helped me build my confidence to get back to work after several years of working very minimal hours. I would recommend her to anyone! She is smart, savvy and knows how to get the best for her clients. I feel so blessed that she was by my side for a very scary time in my life.

    • I hired Lisa 1-3 years ago.
    • Lisa handled my DUI & DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was pulled over for an OVI in Butler County, OH. I refused to blow and therefore my license was suspended. Lisa was able to stay the suspension within a couple days. She helped me through the ordeal keeping me well informed and letting me know what to expect. The charge was reduced to a wreckless operation. Since then I have also used her services for some family matters. I have found her to be very accesible and keeps me informed of my options.

    • I recommend Lisa Wells.
    • I hired Lisa 1-3 years ago.
    • Lisa handled my Child Abuse matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Lisa Wenzel Wells was my attorney for several years. She has successfully supported me in various legal settings such as my divorce, which included false allegations of child sexual abuse. Lisa showed great passion and energy in helping me deal with those heinous allegations. She was successful in defending me in a civil suit, as well as helped me win my counter claims of slander, defamation of character and infliction of emotional distress. For anyone falsely accused of child sexual abuse, I would highly recommend Lisa Wells as an experienced & caring attorney that can help you through such difficult times. I will always remember her holding my hand in support as the verdict was returned at trial, as well as asking how my boys are doing years after cases ended. Lisa cares. Also impressive was Lisa's team of support personnel including a top notch private investigator & staff, her networking with other attorneys and her familiarity with the various judges involved. Her ability to build a relationship with a jury was astounding. You won't find a better attorney to conduct a deposition in my opinion.

    She will persevere & work hard on your behalf. I greatly appreciated her willingness to stand up to judges and other attorneys for what was right. Her willingness to listen, to accept other points of view, to understand a client's strengths/limitations, to communicate effectively and then champion a strategy that supported my goals were invaluable. Lisa was also very financially responsible and caring, which was a great comfort during my divorce. Her compassion for the human aspect of litigation has been commendable. My two boys will be forever grateful for Lisa's 'family values' approach. I have enjoyed many years of invaluable time with my two boys because of Lisa Wells' efforts.
