AMAZING LAWYER GREAT SUPPORTER
Lisa has helped our family in more ways than we could ever express. Her communication, professionalism, knowledge, and dedication is unbelievable. My husband and I have used several different lawyers in the area over the past few years. After using Lisa there is no one else we could imagine to represent our family but her. Lisa and her staff ALWAYS returned calls, were ALWAYS there to EXPLAIN things (sometime more than once ), stayed very well ORGANIZED, and really CARED about our case. If communication, organization and professionalism is not enough just watching Lisa in court is amazing. Lisa Fitzpatrick does her homework and knows the laws. She was a fire ball in court and even had past court cases that she had researched for our case. We highly recommend Lisa and her team to anyone looking for someone who is passionate about your case. SHE CARES, SHE WORKS HARD, AND SHE IS DETERMINED TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT!

Excellent family law services
Ms. Fitzpatrick provided excellent legal services for my separation case, which included multiple iterations of a separation agreement. She served as my legal liaison for the initial serving of the separation agreement to my spouse, and subsequent communication with his legal team. She provided guidance (based on both the law and her experience within the legal system) on a multitude of issues addressed within the agreement, including separation of assets, custody, and further guidelines to be followed post-separation. She helped provide strength and support when needed while making difficult decisions, and was very candid regarding the legal rights of both parties and what it would look like if court was required. As I’m sure often happens, information came to light throughout the separation process, and I’ll forever be grateful to Ms. Fitzpatrick and her team for their support and grace throughout the process.

Wonderful Service
Lisa is a wonderful lawyer who is extremely knowledgeable. She was always readily available to me by email or phone. I had many questions and she took the time to explain so I could understand completely. I hired her for my separation and she was upfront about all the details. She gave me multiple options on certain details pertaining to my case, and was open to my own wants. Lisa is someone who anybody can relate to and feel comfortable with. She always listened to my needs when it came to my case, and even her staff are pleasant. I'd glad recommend her to anyone.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Compassionate Attorney that will fight for you.
I read many reviews of law offices in the area and finally decided to use Lisa to help me in the beginning stages of my separation and as an "advisor" in my DVPO hearing. She helped me to prepare and went over what to expect in the different situations that may arise. Lisa and her team were very responsive every time I called or emailed. Lisa was 2 weeks away from having her baby and still took the time to help me with my case and even checked in on me multiple times while on her maternity leave while I went to court using my legal aid attorney for the DVPO. She even had her husband (Michael Fitzpatrick: Fitzpatrick Law) check in from the courtroom and talk to me in her absence due to Covid and her being so close to her due date. Lisa is very knowledgeable and will work with you to make sure you get the best representation possible and will take your calls and emails for ANY questions you have. Although Lisa did not represent me directly, she gave me the support, information, and helped me prepare to head into court. Most of all, she gave me the confidence to push forward in the case and ultimately I was able to get the DVPO extended and was granted most of what I wanted from the case. Most importantly my children! Because it was a DVPO it was stated that the price was higher due to getting involved in the litigation aspect of the DVPO and not an out of court situation, which I had no problem with. My legal aid was handling the case and I wanted to have Lisa as my backup attorney. I was given the contract and signed and paid for the retainer fee. We spoke later and we mutually decided she would not officially represent me on the trial, relieving her of any litigation and that she would be more of an advisory role from the domestic side concerning separation and divorce. Considering she was still helping me in the case itself, the contract remained the same and she did an excellent job getting me ready for my court appearance. All in all, it was worth any money spent because I now have my 2 boys and am giving them as much of my time as I can. I will definitely use Lisa and her firm again when the time comes to finalize the divorce and/or get a separation agreement drafted. I highly recommend Lisa Fitzpatrick to anyone seeking an attorney that truly cares about her clients! Matt Update: I contacted Lisa on a weekend after an incident happened and she was very quick to respond. She went out of her way to talk to me during her off time and was again, extremely professional and helpful. She really does care about her clients and I have learned that she truly has my best interest at heart. Thank you Lisa!

The Best Family Attorney
This past year has been one of the hardest times our family had to endure. In April, we needed to find an attorney to assist us with our desired outcome. I came across Mrs. Fitzpatrick. From the consultation, I knew our family was in good hands. Mrs. Fitzpatrick went beyond our expectations and went well above the calibor as an attorney. Mrs. Fitzpatrick truly cares for her clients and their desired outcome and will go to the ends of the earth to try and make it happen. Not only will you meet an outstanding attorney, you will also be engaged by a friendly and attentive staff. Honestly, there are no complaints about this practice. If you are in search of an attorney who will have your back at every turn, look no further than Mrs. Fitzpatrick. I truly can not thank them enough, for what they accomplished for our family.
