    • I recommend Lisa Vance.
    • Lisa handled my Child Custody matter.

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

    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.

      Lawyer Comment:

      We were the second lawyers hired to represent FH in her divorce action. We created a litigation strategy so that she would work ONLY with one of our paralegals, rather than include the hourly rate of a lawyer. She never called me, only the legal assistant and therefore it is not true that I did not return her calls. That paralegal, however, spent time with FH, analyzing her data, creating a budget and expense roster for her to use in her case. She wanted us to work for free and when we refused, she said she would post negative messages on the web about me. That is defamation; her malicious intention is evident in her refusal to even list her name in this comment.
      Her husband worked in the oilfield and was only able to come into San Antonio sporadically. At the first hearing, his lawyer forgot that the hearing was to be held and it was therefore continued at his request. At the second, FH told us we no longer had her authority to represent her. The night before that hearing, the husband’s lawyer’s car was stolen and he had no papers to present anyway.
      Knowing that FH would not permit us to represent her, I explained how very difficult this client is & outlined our work to the Hon. Karen Pozza, who voiced her confidence in me and my work. FH attempted to file a grievance against me with the State Bar of Texas, but her allegations were insufficient to even justify any state investigation whatsoever. FH asked us to return her entire retainer; we gave her back the money that had not been spent on her case. She then threatened that if she did not get her entire retainer, she would post negative comments on the web about me. I do not tolerate bullying behavior and am more than comfortable explaining what happened in this case.
      No damage was done by the husband during our brief representation of FH. They were living apart and she was able to support herself.

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

    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.
