Simply the best family law attorney. Lisa successfully helped my family with blocking the relocation of my shared custody child. She was so knowledgeable, organized and confident that I hired imidiately at our first consultation. Lisa is a very genuine and honest lady that believes in helping good people through the overwhelming family court system. She argued the facts of my case with a force in effect that I had not recieved with the other attorneys that I had retained in the past. I am very happy with the outcome of my last family law matter and I attribute that to the incredible level of expertise Lisa brought to the table. I have recommended her services numerous times and feel very confident in doing so. What a blessing to know this amazing attorney.

Lisa Dufour is an exceptional attorney. I could not have gone through this difficult time in my life without her experience and knowledge. My divorce was very complicated with issues of domestic violence, child support and child custody. Lisa's high standard of integrity and confidence carried me through this case with results that went beyond my expectations. Lisa is a wonderful person and I am so blessed to have found her. I can highly recommend her to anyone who has a complicated case and needs a skilled family law attorney.

Lisa did a fantastic job for me. She always responded to me in a timely manner and got my case handled in my favor. I would highly recommend her services

Lisa actively listened to my specific needs related to a desired divorce from our first meeting, which were somewhat unusual because I was experienced and capable and interested in doing most of the analyzing and negotiating with my spouse myself. She provided me with the necessary forms and written information regarding dates, forms required, etc. at our first and only meeting. After that, we communicated mostly by email and sometimes by phone, which was my preference, not hers. This approach kept my husband from overreacting and kept my legal fees reasonable. We succeeded in reaching a mutually agreed property settlement within a year without mediation or going to court.
Response time to my inquiries was very timely, almost always the same day, often within an hour or two, and right on point. Lisa was very efficient with her time. She wisely used her paralegal when appropriate.
I always felt that Lisa cared about me but was able to give me tough advice when I was heading off track.

Lisa responded to my request for counsel within hours. We met for our initial consultation the next day. She went out of her way to help me understand my options, gave fantastic advice, and even took action to contact opposing counsel-- all during the initial consult. Best of all, she reassured me and made me feel better about my situation.

Lisa is a wonderful, very experienced family law attorney, and I highly recommend her. My divorce was simple yet complicated, frustrating, and long. Lisa kept the case focused. She is very empathetic and caring and a delight to work with - despite how devastating divorce is. After it was all over, I missed Lisa - though I did not miss the process! The whole team at Carol Bailey & Associates is wonderful to work with. Their office has a great vibe. Everyone is very friendly and easy to work with. It feels like they are in it to help you - not for the money. If you have a family law issue, definitely give Lisa a call.

Lisa was everything we could ask for in a family law attorney. She dealt with a complicated, contentious relocation case with intelligence and professionalism. She has the experience and levity to work through many details and difficult aspects. She was completely on task and skillful during trial, and found ample relevant case law to help us. We would definitely work with her again if we need a family law attorney and highly recommend her.
Posted by a Child Custody client,
I hired Lisa to give advise on a very sensitive child custody decision I was trying to make. While she could have taken my entire case at that meeting and charged me lots of money....she instead gave me sound advice to make my case stronger so we wouldn't waste time & money until we knew we could WIN. Once I am ready, I WILL be hiring her for the job!! What a wonderful, understanding yet firm and tactful attorney. I hope to be working with her soon.

My experience with Lisa was excellent. I am truly satisfy with the time, effort, and dedication she invested into my case. I have been so bless to have her representing me through a very difficult time, and her hard work dedication and determination has allowed me to enjoy, and continue to build beautiful memories with my four year old daughter. Lisa and her team are experienced, knowledgeable individuals of high moral standards. She was willing to work with me and help me understand the process. I would recommend Lisa Dufour and the team at McKinley Irvin law firm with no hesitation.

Lisa Dufour represented me in my recent divorce via mediation. Lisa and her paralegal Kim Nichols were informative, knowledgeable and true to their words. Considering it was a divorce, Lisa and Kim made the experience as easy and trouble-free as I could ever have hoped.
Lisa kept her promise to keep me informed each step along the way, to keep my out of pocket expenses to a minimum, and to represent me and my interests to the best of her abilities.
I can't say enough positive things about my experience and I would highly recommend Lisa for your family law needs.
