  • Edyta Christina Grzybowska

    Lisa is simply the best attorney you can hire because not only is she incredibly smart, very experienced, and beyond talented, but she has the biggest heart full of kindness and compassion. She is the most knowledgeable and ethical attorney I have ever worked with. Highly skilled, honest, dedicated, and effective, Lisa is a true gem. There are just not enough superlatives to describe what a fabulous attorney she is. You will fall in love with her calm and positive energy. She is not just a great lawyer but a wonderful human being. I would vouch for her any day. She is simply the best!
