She cared for me and my kids and the whole case well above and beyond. I highly recommend to anyone that needs fantastic help that you just can’t get anywhere else. She was always very honest and detailed and kept me up to date, like up to the MINUTE throughout my case. She will totally assist in any way possible. Excellent Counsel, it does not get any better. Amazing.
I joined this site to show everyone my opinion about my great experience with Kissandra Tysman representing me. I just wanted a way to thank her publicly for the wonderful outcome for my family that she made happen. If not for her we would no way all be together as a family right now. Nothing could be more precious than what she gave to me. Anyway, I hired Tysman to help me when things had got really out of hand. She was at all time respectful and refreshingly humble. She was dedicated very ethical and incredibly trustworthy. She truly went the extra mile for me both in terms of her actions and what she charged me. The end result was that my family was not torn apart as some wished before I hired Tysman. I do not believe anyone would have done what she did for me. I would and will recommend her to anyone I ever feel has been wronged and needs help fighting to right that wrong. I do definitely recommend Kissandra.
VERY long story...horrible communication, horrible billing practices, unethical. You attorney is supposed to represent you...and your best interests. That is why you hire one. Kissandra and her firm totally mislead me, breached their own contract, settled our case, and then stuck us with a HUGE bill after not billing for months...MONTHS! Our settlement would not have been acceptable had we had ANY idea that the bill would have been as much as the settlement...we understand that, why can't she? What's the point in hiring an attorney if they only thing you net out of the ordeal is legal fees covered??
Also we were billed for many hours of work at her rate that she did not do, her assistant (who had not passed the bar yet) did all the work. We also spoke to 2 other past clients who had billing issues as well.
Arrogant, unethical, untrustworthy. Go find a lawyer who has your interest at heart and mind. If you disregard this review, you get what you asked for...

RUDE !!!!They are Dishonest and very very unprofessional .
Bad ethics, Rude, and Unorganized. Boxes of actual cases on the floor for everyone to see and take. I would rather use a criminal to represent me. Once you are pulled in, you will get the feeling I did about being violated. Her website is outdated and has some questionable 'facts'. She charges behind her 'No Upfront Fees' slogan.
Handled my case like it was a pain in her neck. Like Poison Ivy. Go figure.
Her contract said no upfront fees and I ended up filing bankruptcy due to her wanting ME to pay for depositions, copies, and her other legal fees ($15,000) and at the end she still got her 40%. She did not fight hard for me she barely even fought she made me feel weak.
