She “took the bull by the horns”
Mrs. Vance saw me through a horrible custody case. It was one of the toughest times of my life and it was ripping my happy little world apart. Ms. Vance taught me how to do the right thing “take the high road” as she called it, even when that was the last thing I wanted to do. She was an absolute powerhouse in the courtroom. She is also very creative, and offered me several different options on how to handle my case. She even showed me how to do some of the paralegals work so I would save money on the legal fees. I am so very thankful that I had Lisa Vance as my lawyer. I highly recommend Ms. Lisa Vance to anyone who needs a lawyer.
I want to express my deepest gratitude to Lisa Vance and her office for their wonderful work, their care and understanding – it is priceless. I felt understood, helped, I felt as if Lisa stood in front of me, supported and protected me. My case was complicated by the fact, that my ex is a lawyer himself, but I realized very soon, that it is impossible to intimidate Lisa. She is very knowledgeable, fearless, operates efficiently and will do everything possible to protect her client. Thank you all, thank you!
Ms. Vance helped me through a very rough divorce and saw to it that all my resources were not drained by ex-wife. She pointed out many specifics that I hadn't an idea existed. I couldn't imagine where I'd be today without the help of her and her staff. Several times I needed reassuring that the course I was taking was the best thing for everyone involved, and she made sure my every discomfort was attended to. In simple terms, if it had not been for Ms. Vance I'd have been raked over the coals depleting what was rightfully mine.
Poor professional. Didn't return calls. Kept delaying the court dates. After 4 months with Lisa, she still didn't get me any temporary orders for my divorce. My ex by then had done so much damage. The only time she was genuinely concerned and cared was when she wanted my retainer. Sad that she bears a professional title.
Serious, trusting, honest, and smooth. I have to say I was overwhelmed with how to go about my situation. After one meeting, I was very comfortable. Everything went as discussed. They were very diligent . Thank you VERY MUCH!
Mine was a pretty simple case; however, due to the fact that my ex-spouse wasn't very good at communicating with anyone, including his two attorneys (both of whom withdrew from the case on two separate occasions), my divorce took longer than it should have. I was frustrated, annoyed, and disappointed in the legal system. From the first appointment when I met with Ms. Vance, I was made to feel at home. Lisa Vance and Agatha Rode were both courteous, interested, knowledgeable, and accessible. I never had to wait more than a day to receive an answer to a question or concern, either via email or phone. Whenever we had to go to court, both attorneys were very well-prepared and kept me informed of the situation at hand. I trusted them both and when they decided with one instead of another strategy, I knew that they knew best and I trusted their expertise. In the end, our case had to go to trial -- a trial that lasted 3 days. It was exhausting but through it all, Ms. Vance and Ms. Rode had one objective in mind: to support me and stand up for me and my rights (and wishes). I am grateful that I sought Vance & Whitley's services for my divorce. I have recommended them to two co-workers already and I will continue to do so. Thank you, Lisa. Thank you, Agatha. You know how much our "little" victory means to me.
Lisa Vance is the only attorney that I would recommend for family law matters. She is the best when it comes to integrity, knowledge, professionalism. Her Knowdge of family law puts her above the rest but her compassion, integrity and focus on what is in the best interest of her client truly makes her shine. She always answered my phone calls promptly. My questions no matter how minor were taken seriously and answered factually. Her staff is nothing but professional. Lisa keeps her cool, professionalism in highly emotional situtions which keeps the situation from escalating to a more volotile level. My trust and faith in her ability remains solid. I recommend her to all friends, family, co-workers and aquaintances. With Lisa you can be guaranteed, honesty, quality, and integrity.
