Matrimonial
When I tell you this woman is a God send, I mean it. Not only does she KNOW the law but she very quickly learned, knew and cared for me and my needs. There was never a time, day or night, weekend or week day, that I did not feel as though she 100% had my back. Even now, after the nightmare that was my divorce, I truly feel as though I have the benefit of her hard work. I know what was finalized in my court papers like the back of my hand, at her insistence and I could not be more thankful about that.

Contested Matrimonial
Ms. Hartley (Lisa) has been invaluable during the entire process of my matrimonial action. She is extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and informative. Lisa was also caring and supportive during the difficult and stressful times. I will definitely recommend Lisa to anyone in need of an attorney.

Excellent Attorney
Ms. Hartley represented us as buyers in a house sale and we found her to be extremely competent, knowledgeable, and conscientious every step of the way. Whenever the transaction hit a snag, she kept in constant contact with the seller's attorney, realtor, and whoever else she needed to in order to keep things moving in a timely fashion, which was extremely important to us! Ms. Hartley truly knows how to get things done. She was easy to get in touch with, willing to answer questions, and is a genuinely nice, caring, very intelligent lady! I have also used Ms. Hartley's services in the past - approximately 10 years ago she represented me in a divorce proceeding and for a house closing when I was the seller. I was 100% pleased with her work during those transactions also or I wouldn't still be her client! My husband and I highly recommend her!

Amazing Attorney
I can't express enough how greatly I value Ms. Hartley and her determination. I have been represented on numerous occasions by Lisa, better than I could have ever imagined. No matter how bad things seemed, how tough it looked, how busy she got, she always made sure my needs were met. Always so caring, very knowledgeable and makes you feel extremely comfortable, as if you are family. She has always made sure my opinions were valued and my doubts were reassured. Ms. Hartley fights like no other, she goes way above and beyond! This woman is very open and honest. She has gotten me all the way through some of the toughest times in my life. I have been so blessed to have had Lisa by my side! I absolutely recommend Ms. Lisa E. Hartley a thousand times over! An Incredible Woman she is!

The Best!
Lisa came highly recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. She represented me during a long, complicated and nasty custody/divorce. From our first conversation and throughout the process, she was very professional and confident, and left no stone unturned to ensure I had the best chances of a successful resolution. She really looked out for mine and my child’s interest. As a result, I was ultimately granted custody of my child and my divorce as well. I am eternally grateful for everything Lisa has done for me.

Awesome attorney
Lisa was my attorney in a very sensitive family court case. Her experience and the way she handled the case earned me excellent results and also helped me survive emotionally. Furthermore, I was in a very difficult financial situation, Lisa did not give up on me and worked with me unlike other attorneys I worked with in the past. I highly recommend her.

Happy Camper!!
I have worked with Lisa Hartley a number of times. Yes, When I first met with her, I found her to be different than the other lawyers I had spoke to in regards to getting a divorce. All the other lawyers were robotic, gave me less than 30 min to discuss my case & charged me at times up to $100 or more for just telling them my standing situation. Lisa did speak to me in sitting area, however; for the all the times I had to meet with her, we were never interrupted. She is one to actually care for many if not all her clients in a sincere way. There are other people in this world who do not even know what that even is.

Horrible excuse of a human being
She represented my mother in my parents' divorce. She told my mother that I wasn't allowed to sit in with them to discuss pricing. She drained my mother's life savings, took her entire retirement savings (my mom owes IRS now, thanks to this wench), then proceeded to tell my mom she owes her another $7,000 (and never explained why.) My parent's divorce dragged on for two years. And it left both of my parents with nothing. She is disgusting. I honestly wouldn't even recommend her to an enemy.

So appalled
My mother hired Lisa as her divorce attorney. She was promised the world and at the end was told "don't you just want this over?". She ended up broke and in debt. A few months later, my mother fell ill and was on a ventilator. I needed to obtain her divorce papers (or copies of them) to process her health benefits. She could not speak for herself because she was on a ventilator and I was her power of attorney. When I contacted the office and finally tried to speak to Lisa, she screamed at me and had a temper tantrum about my asking for the papers- even though I offered to come by or fax documentation of the power of attorney. She ended up hanging up on me?! Is that professional when all I was asking for was paperwork that I was entitled to? I ended up finding other means to obtain the needed documentation and then my mother passed away. Thank you for NOTHING!

Sad single mom
The worst lawyer I ever hired. $60,000+ and wasn't even divorced yet. Had to hire another lawyer to finish the job......hence her nickname in the lawyer circle "drag-it-on-forever-Hartley". Talk is cheap....and she's full of it. Actions speak louder than words in my book. I implore you.... Don't fall for her down to earth, warm approach. It's all BS. She's incredibly disorganized, as evidenced by her messy office and poor follow through. I'm sorry for taking her as a recommendation, I only hope I can prevent another from making the same mistake.
