  • H. Michael Finesilver

    I have had a number of cases with Lisa Sharpe as opposing counsel. I have the highest regard for her. She is not only knowledgeable and a skilled and effective advocate, but she is oriented towards being a pragmatic solver. She is adept at finding creative ways to solve seemingly intractable problems to reach settlements while optimizing the protection of her client's interests.
