As we know divorces are never enjoyable and who really comes out totally satisfied? My divorce dragged on almost 7 years and I was completely insane and full of anxiety ! During this time I actually went through a few good attorneys and when the separation got serious I chose this firm. I was represented by Elisabeth Lord whom I highly recommend. Honestly at first I was skeptical, she operates calm, subjective, and realistic from the start. At the time this was not what I wanted I wanted a tiger I wanted to make some noise I had unrealistic expectations and felt of course that I was on the losing end mostly because I felt my spouses attorney was dominant , loud, and more experienced. Feeling this way I drove everyone crazy, family, friends , the whole entire firm. (but Elisabeth's approach was sophisticated and effective ) I don't know how they tolerated me, but Elisabeth was an Angel, she guided me and helped me to understand the process, explained everything thoroughly so I I was able to make rational sensible decisions which in my frame of mind was not an easy task since I had a hard time keeping my mouth shut long enough to actually let her speak I just couldn't see past all of my anger and resentment. Looking back compared to allot of divorces mine wasn't even that difficult but I was, so I must praise the most wonderful paralegal in the world Jessica Diaz! Jessica literally had to deal with my insanity daily, if it wasn't for her patience I would not have made it through.
Elisabeth has been my divorce lawyer for nearly 3 years and she makes me feel at ease with an uneasy life event. Since hiring Elisabeth, I feel like I am getting the best advice and I don't go into court feeling like I am alone. She makes me feel important, and provides the best advice in order to move forward and fight the battles that are important at that particular time. I can't say enough good things about her. I would recommend Elisabeth to everyone!
Elisabeth guided me through an unusually complicated divorce. She was great about explaining things clearly and was easy to reach when I needed her. She is professional, patient and kind but knows how to be tough when necessary. I would definitely use her services again (but hopefully won't need to!)
I was very pleased with the outcome that Elisabeth was able to work out for me. She kept me informed about what was going on and the variables that were involved in my case. She explained very well to my wife and I about what she was doing and what to possibly expect as an outcome. My wife and I rate her very highly.
It was a year long divorce battle primarily over money and Elisabeth never backed down from the fight. She battled tirelessly against someone who was vindictive, mean spirited, spiteful, and did nothing for the right reasons. Elisabeth fought hard and her dedication paid off when it was over. After watching her in action…..Elisabeth is definitely the one you want on your side of the court room!
Elisabeth has been my lawyer for over 12 years. She has been an amazing asset to myself and my family. She is beyond knowledgable of family law, and has proved to be an incredible lawyer in and out of the court room. I have entrusted my family in her hands, and I have never once been let down. I would recommend Elisabeth to anyone who needs an excellent high quality lawyer.
I hired Elisabeth about two months ago. I felt hopeless and was facing the worst situation of my life.
And was seeking the best Attorney possible for my situation. After my first phone call with Elisabeth
I instantly knew she was the one. She was very knowledgeable about what i was facing as well as very professional. She Had a very promising attitude and totally made me feel hopeful and comfortable. She had extreme empathy for my situation and was very kind and sincere. She is a outstanding litigator and very aggressive. She is highly responsible and extremely diligent in everything she does. Elisabeth along with all her staff were everything and more than what I could have ever imagined. I never had a question or concern left unanswered or a problem not solved. I would highly recommend Elisabeth Lord as the best attorney I have ever encountered along with the wonderful firm that she represents. My outcome thanks to Elisabeth and her firm has been one that has brought life back into my soul and happiness back into my heart!!! I am and will always be extremely grateful for all the countless hours and priceless effort that was put into my case.
Elisabeth Lord is an outstanding family law attorney! Ms. Lord assumed control of my case from another law firm and sought a solution to my never ending family law case rather than extend it just to appease the courts. She is exceedingly knowledgeable and quick thinking as well as compassionate and understanding. She took my case to heart and performed above and beyond anything I could have expected. I highly recommend Elisabeth to anyone who is seeking a solution to the circus that family law can be.
Facing a divorce after a long term marriage can be complex and difficult. Ms. Lord was able to navigate the issues and focus on what was most important to me. She did so in a personal and professional manner. The end result was fair and I was able to avoid an expensive trial. I had a true advocate in a complicated and life changing situation.
Elisabeth Lord was the ONLY lawyer who took her time to talk with us, listen to us, and fight for us. She always responded quickly. She always put our minds at ease, when things seemed their worse. The office staff, (that I will not name) also were always so polite and helpful and dealt with our continuous calls. They were very gracious. I have and will continue to tell my friends and family about hiring Elisabeth Lord. All I can really say is that by the grace of God and the effortless and hard work of Elisabeth and her office, we are once a family again. And you can't put a price tag on that.
