I hired Lisa Hesse because of frustration with the original lawyer. Lisa took my case and worked with the lawyer as well as my husband's lawyer to resolve all matters of concern. I was very pleased with the way she handled my divorce, keeping me informed of each step in the process. I felt a sense of relief and comfort with her professionalism. Because of the way that she proceeded, the divorce was expeditious. I felt a win-win. She successfully accomplished what I hired the original lawyer to do. She told me upfront what her fee was and however, due to my situation, I probably would get money back. I was pleasantly surprised to receive an itemized invoice and refund check. I am ecstatic to have worked with such a honest, fair, thorough, and knowledgeable lawyer.

Stuck between a rock and a hard place. I had to switch lawyers in the middle of my case. I feel this lawyer took no real interest in learning the history of my case. There was basically no communication leading up to the court date. She was totally unprepared the day of court and very unprofessional but made it a point to tell me how much she would be charging me for her time.
I feel my case was just some quick cash for her.

Lisa Hesse has been my attorney for two years, through a very difficult custody case. She is highly knowledgable, skilled, well-regarded by her peers and judges, and she is of the upmost moral character. She does the right thing for the client, without regard for her own personal interests. I strongly recommend her as an attorney for any family matters, such as divorce and custody.
Rosalyn Otieno, Child custody Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Lisa Hesse is a very experienced and competent lawyer. She is smart, tenacious and fair. I have handled a number of matters in which she represented the opposing party, and I find that she is aggressive in representing her clients, but cooperative in resolving the conflicts that often arise in family court matters. I fully endorse her and recommend her to anyone who is seeking good counsel in family court.
Michael Danels, Divorce and separation Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer as she is a highly skilled litigator who is always prepared. Ms. Hesse is one of the finest family law attorney's in the state, and is well respected by members of the bar and of the bench. She is a strong advocate for her clients, and is qualified to handle any type of family law matter.
