I am currently embroiled in a very litigious post divorce case that started because of the perpetration of acts of domestic violence against myself and my children by my ex-husband. Lisa McKnight fearlessly stepped into my case AT THE LAST MINUTE in order to represent the interests of my children, and she has been extremely effective in front of the judges that have been assigned to my case. I have been truly impressed by her professionalism, how she investigates the Texas Family Code, Texas rules of procedure and any other relevant statute in order to defend my position in court and how she is always on top of her game. She is excellent at keeping me focused on what is relevant in a court of law since I am not always objective to the elements of my own case. Based on her years of experience in the Dallas court rooms, she has developed an intricate understanding of the best way of communicating to each individual judge who has been assigned to the case. For example, some judges prefer to see a time line of events leading to the present day, while other judges might prefer a different mode of presentation. Her oral and written communication skills are also quite impressive. She understands the fine art of legal argument before the judge, being careful to always present her line of reasoning within the context of the law and within the context of the case. I have seen other attorneys whose brutal attacks in court and lack of professionalism have been shocking. However, Lisa McKnight always maintains her dignity in the court room and is always professional. I have never seen her stoop to a level of conduct that is not becoming, and this has helped to further increase my credibility before the court. She is also an attorney with integrity. Her staff is always extremely prepared when we are in court and they are instrumental in helping Lisa to have the necessary documentation in her hands at the moment when she requires it. They are also very helpful in answering my questions before we have our court date. Lisa McKnight is not afraid to handle complex cases. She gets the job done. I would definitely recommend "Lisa McKnight for the fight!"

When I first hired Lisa, she was really helpful and on top of everything. Later on, when it came it came to discoveries, she wasn't helping. My ex husband said he attached everything to the file but he didn't attach his bank statement and tax return - those are very important but she didn't care to check the document all the way through to make sure that the files were there. I asked her to subpoena his bank statement since he didn't attach it but she responded, "I cannot subpoena to give you community property," which wasn't what I was asking for at all. Her assistants were very rude as well. When I came to drop document , her newest assistant stood in the way of the door, took the paper from me and charged me for dropping it. I paid her 21,000 dollars and she didn't even finish what I needed her to do and definitely wasn't worth all that money.

If you want custody of your children, Lisa is the lawyer to hire in the Dallas Metroplex area. In the last four years, Lisa has handled several cases for our family. My wife and I have been previously married with children. She handled my wife’s child support case, my divorce, and my subsequent custody case.
In 2009, I hired Lisa to handle my divorce case, in which see did an exceptional job. She told me on my first visit, that I was going to have an uphill battle. I was in a conservative county, conservative court, with a judge known to have a reputation for favoring mothers. After stating that, her next comment was, “now let’s see how to keep your kids”, and went to work. With her skill, I was able to keep primary custody of my children, and my home.
In 2013, my wife and I were sued by my ex to try and get custody of my children. After eight months, and four court appearances, we walked away with full custody of my children, and several large monetary judgments against my ex. She has also made it very difficult for the ex to sue us again.
She also handled a child support case when my wife’s ex sued her to reduce child support. Lisa did her homework and found out that he had a part-time job, and was able to preserve the child support for her.
Lisa does her homework ahead of time, prepares for your case with all evidence and documentation needed, and knows about everything she can find out about your opponent, their lawyer and the judge. She understands their strengths and styles and prepares accordingly. When In Court, she demonstrates great confidence; she knows when to be aggressive, and when to tune it down a notch, she knows when to show strength, and when to show understanding. She does her best to work things out with the opponent to avoid going to court, saving both money and time; however, if the opponent is not willing to go that route, then she does her best to secure the best outcome for her clients.
You will find Lisa not only a smart and intelligent lawyer, but also a compassionate person. She identifies with your issues, and lives your frustration, and will take it on as if they were her issues. It was kind of funny to see her reactions towards the opponent and how frustrated she seems to be towards them which make you really believe that she is on your side and is as a family member who knows what you’ve been through and is ready to put an end to your misery.
We would HIGHLY recommend Lisa McKnight for anything involving family law. She is smart, witty, fierce, funny, and very professional.

Lisa and her staff were a true blessing for my wife and I. From the moment we met with Lisa we both felt comfort knowing that we were in very capable hands and that she would fight for us. Lisa was fair, thorough and honest in her assessment of our case. She kept us extremely informed and worked very hard to provide the outcome we were looking for.

Lisa McKnight has represented me in two different matters in the same marriage, over the past 5 years.
Lisa McKnight is the finest Family Lawyer I could recommend in Dallas. Lisa was 100% dedicated to my case & my concerns for my children's well being. She helped everyway possible to protect the innocent children, and my family/corporate assets. Lisa not only listened intensely to what I needed, but demanded the same from me in guiding me through an extremely emotionally charged time.
Lisa and her staff showed me they genuinely cared about me and my children, and the fees for her services were secondary. I can honestly say that she was worth every penny in fees & she has the character and honestly that allowed me to trust her not only financially, but with the care & advice she gave and also demanded of me throughout.
It is obvious that the courts are aware of her honesty & integrity, and knowing that gave me great comfort. Lisa possesses the ability to be kind and understanding, & then go to court with ferocity to protect what is right and fair.
Thank God for a very few lawyers like Lisa & your caring staff!. As a dedicated "Father" in a "mom-friendly" world, you effectively showed the truth bluntly & effectively. Lisa and her staff have VERY successfully leveled the "Good Father's Playing Field" for me and my family's safety.
GREAT JOB Lisa!!- Thank you for preserving & protecting the most important thing in my life- My children's well being.

Lisa and her paralegals were inviting and understanding. Lisa gave me the confidence throughout this case. When I was discouraged she lifted me up. She was my helping hand that defended for me. On trial she was fierce! I can never forget what happen and knowing that I have a superb attorney that stood by my side. She gave me her time to help me with my case that words can not express what it meant to me then… and now. She is the best! I would definitely recommend Lisa McKnight.

Lisa McKnight and her team were extremely professional and knowledgeable about the subject of divorce, of which I knew nothing. She explained to me the timetable of events that would occur and then made sure that the events happened in the time frame that was suitable to me. Lisa provided continuous support for me during a very strenuous time. She was always there when I needed her advice and counsel. She also kept the process as simple as possible, never letting my focus waiver, and making sure that the endpoint that I wanted was what she delivered. Simply put, she was an angel when I needed one. I can recommend Lisa McKnight with the highest of accolades and without any reservations.
