Alyson is a very bright attorney in the divorce law field and she is extremely responsive. Because of this I felt as comfortable and confident one can feel going through a divorce. I would recommend her to family or friends.

Alyson was an advocate for me in my divorce and custody issues. She is professional, extremely honest, knowledgeable and straightforward about the process and potential issues. As a parent, Alyson was empathetic and acted in the best interest of my child. She is aggressive when needed, but also cares about her clients and their outcome. I highly recommend her!

Strong | Respected | Skilled Family Law Attorney
Alyson assisted with me with a post-Divorce Settlement Agreement where the OP was seeking alimony in perpetuity by exploiting weaknesses in the contract language. She was timely, client focused and highly thoughtful throughout the process. She and her firm were masterful and polished with all pleadings and filings. Billing was painless and fair. She selected an impressive mediator and swiftly brought the case to a close. This firm blew me away and brought me to tears. They helped me to feel understood and reassured. You won’t second guess yourself while working with them. Be honest and true. They are on the good side and masterful at family law.

Highly Recommend
Alyson was co-attorney in my divorce case. From the outset both she and Savannah showed sincere concern for my well-being. I cannot express enough my gratitude for all of their dedication and hard work on my behalf. Alyson is a very savvy lawyer. If not for the savvy of this dynamic duo, I feel my case would still not be settled. I highly recommend that you hire Alyson!

Alyson Lembeck was very responsive and helpful. She did not try to overly complicate things as many attorneys do. She asked questions to make sure you understand what is happening and why. She does not require you to do any heavy lifting.

Exceptionally knowledgeable in Case Law, Empathetic & Laser Focused
I hired Alyson after having hired a slew of "high-powered" attorneys in my area who wasted my resources and lacked direction with how to get my desired results. I had a complex case. Alyson was able to laser focus on the solution immediately. She is intelligent, honorable, and truly cares for her clients. She was able to get me the necessary results to keep my family safe. I am forever indebted to Alyson for everything she did for our family. I would recommend her hands down as the best in this area. If your situation is complicated and feels like an impossible feat, Alyson is the lawyer for you.

Both Lisa and Alyson were extremely responsive and answered all the questions I had with professionalism. They settled my case within 2 weeks which would have taken me forever had I not hired such an amazing firm! I highly recommend Ellis Funk, P.C to anyone who is looking for punctual, professional, and responsiveness on their case.

Best Family Law Attorney
Ms Lembeck has represented me for over 10 years four separate cases. She understands family law and fights to get the best. In each of the four cases we got what we wanted within a short period of time. Ms Lembeck got me full custody at a time when it was almost for the male parent to get full custody. Dhe does a lot for very little money. Very professional and pays attention to every detail. She understands the court system and how the judges work. An excellent high results family law at below average cost

The Right Choice
I have worked with Alyson on my custody matters on and off (and on again) over the last 11 years. She has been a strong advocate for my children and myself and worked to present situations and possible outcomes to me with an honest and practical point of view. I will be continuing to utilize Alysons knowledge and expertise over the next couple of years as we wrap things up. I would highly recomend her as someone who works to learn the details and help to attain positive, realistic outcomes.

An enthusiastic endorsement of Alyson F. Lembeck
Alyson represented me in a difficult divorce/custody case more than a decade ago and has continued to advise me on related issues ever since. She is exceptionally well-educated, a fierce advocate, a gifted negotiator, and all-around one of the calmest, most clear-minded, most conscientious people I have ever known. There are few people I trust more.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
I found Alyson to be the exact right kind of advocate for me after the end of my 20 year marriage. She was patient, offered sound advice and exercised a firm hand when needed. Most importantly, she protected me from myself during a time where my judgment was compromised.

Outstanding divorce attorney!
Alyson was an absolute pleasure to work with considering the stressful nature of a divorce! She is very approachable, professional at all times, knowledgeable, and experienced. She is easy to communicate with, explains everything during the process, and makes you feel comfortable with the decisions being made. I feel she is very fair but will also fight for what her clients are entitled to. I would definitely recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or child support issues.

Excellent attorney
Alyson was a pleasure to work with during a difficult process. She was knowledgeable, efficient and professional. She was definitely strong and tough, but not overly aggressive like many divorce attorneys. I hope to never need a divorce attorney again, but if I do, I will certainly use her again!
