    • I recommend Lisa Copland.

    I hired this attorney for my visitation case and am very happy with the schedule I got with my son. She also helped me get a fair child support order even though my son's mother and her lawyer were being very unreasonable.

  2. Don't waste your money -- terrible lawyer!

    • I do not recommend Lisa Copland.

    Do NOT hire this attorney! She made so many promises she couldn't keep, was useless in the courtroom, and then pretended the poor outcome was expected all along, just to try to protect her reputation. She spoke to me in an extremely disrespectful manner almost every time I talked to her, and tried to make it seem like I was stupid every time I asked a valid question. She divulged personal information to my ex that I specifically told her not to bring up, then merely rolled her eyes when I complained. There were serious issues with the way my ex was treating my child, but Lisa didn't even bring them up when she spoke to the judge. She accused me of sounding "mentally ill" and told me my child was lying. I switched lawyers and got much better results. Then she became vindictive after I fired her. This is a dreadful lawyer, and a complete waste of money. The biggest mistake I ever made was hiring Lisa Copland.

    • I recommend Lisa Copland.
    • I hired Lisa 1-3 years ago.
    • Lisa handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I hired Ms. Copland for my visitation and child support case. I always knew what was happening in my case and she made sure I knew what to expect. If I have to go back to court I'll use her again.

    I do not recommend Attorney Copland. I am not able to delete my initial rating. So I am writing a followup rating. She did not fight for me at end. It's like she gave up. She authorized an agreement that I did not agree to. Keep looking.

    • I recommend Lisa Copland.
    • I hired Lisa more than 3 years ago.
    • Lisa handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Lisa represented me in my divorce which became final in 2010. She carefully analyzed mounds of documentation in order to build my case and successfully argued on my behalf. I was apprised of the progress throughout the process. I was happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to recommend Lisa.

    Attorney Copland is THE BEST. You can trust her. I wish I had found her before my previous laywer. She knows absolutely everything there is to know about child custody law. She will not steer you wrong. She will not waist your money or use time unwisely. She will be honest, upfront and you will be satisfied. My custody case is still pending and I can tell you that if I had o go through this again I will call Lisa in a minute. Call her today. You won't be sorry.

    This woman is truly a joke. She is very unprofessional and rude. She is useless in the courtroom. I hired her for a child custody case and she never presented my information to the judge. She never approached the bench at all on my behalf. She charge you for every email and phone call that you send to her if if she was the one who initiated it. She will blow through your retainer doing absolutely nothing for you. She will blow through it on email and phone calls. She does not have heart for people at all and she is truly not concerned with your legal needs. I don't know if she had too many cases or she just literally didn't care but she never follows up with you in regards to status. She do not answer concerns in a timely manner or at all. I would not recommend this attorney to my worst enemy.

    This woman will mislead you until you're too invested to turn back. Absolutely useless in the courtroom. I'm not being spiteful, I just don't want anyone else to waste their time and money with this woman. USELESS!
