Great Help at a Difficult Time
Lisa York represented me in my divorce. I had recently left a toxic relationship and moved out of the marital home. Besides leaving the home, the best decision I made was hiring Ms. York. She understood my concerns while being prudent with my time and money. She provided excellent legal advice regarding protecting my assets. Ms. York has that rare combination of empathy and legal strategy. She protected my interests and flawlessly moved the process through the court system. I recommend Ms. York without hesitation.

Compassionate and Consistent
Lisa was so wonderful to work with and helped make a very stressful and overwhelming process related to the guardian advocate process manageable and smooth. She was clear and consistent and so incredibly compassionate through the process. I cannot possibly be more satisfied with my experience and am incredibly grateful for her! I would recommend her services to anyone going through the guardianship process!

Divorce
Before finding Lisa, I probably called 3 or 4 different lawyers. At the end of each 60 minute consultation I would find most of my questions unanswered and feeling just as confused and frustrated as before I called. I finally called Lisa and she answered all my questions and presented me with a plan to get my divorce started. I was finally getting somewhere! Lisa and Christie were professional, attentive, and patient when explaining the (sometimes confusing) legal process of a divorce and all the paperwork that comes with it. They answered all of my questions and I never felt like I was left in the dark about the progress of my case or what direction it was going in. I feel like I can finally live my life again, and a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I can’t recommend her enough. Thank you, Lisa!

She fearlessly sailed in uncharted legal waters!
I had a very difficult divorce case. From the moment I sat in her office, Lisa knew the type of individual we were dealing with and how to guide me. I had very difficult decisions to make for me and my children, and Lisa gave great advice that saved me a lot of hardship months down the road. The legalities around my marriage were complex - no one had ever been in my situation before - she tackled the unknown head on: doing research and asking questions of others to figure out the best way to proceed. And in the end, she secured for me the best possible outcome! Lisa is very careful and thorough. She will tell you what she can and cannot do for you every step of the way. She doesn't get caught up in the drama, and her matter-of-fact demeanor helps you to clear your head and get re-focused on the main thing. Would definitely hire Lisa again!

Professional and Understanding
I have consulted with Lisa on two occasions regarding delicate family matters. She took time to listen to my concerns, and ask questions to clarify those concerns before providing guidance. She was understanding and very respectful, which I appreciated. She gave me solid advice that regarded areas of her expertise. When the topic involved a different area of law, she suggested that I speak with someone that works in that field. She is a kind, trustworthy attorney that made me feel very comfortable when having to discuss such sensitive matters. I definitely recommend Lisa and proud to call her my attorney.

I highly recommend Lisa and am very thankful and grateful for her expertise.

Awesome Attorney
I would just simply like to state,having never dealt with the legal system,even with my basic knowledge ,it was not simple.I was referred to Lisa York by a parent whom I had her child a few ago in elementary school. Lisa was upfront,honest,kind and warming from the first meeting. Lisa allowed me to get all my emotions out in her office .i Would highly recommend her to anyone that is in need of more than just an attorney .

Help with a complicated issue
Very appreciative of Lisa's efforts because she researched whether or not she could help me before charging me a consult fee. This is a very unique thing in the legal world since most lawyers want money up front before talking with you. As it turns out, my issue was outside of her lane and she was able to point me in the right direction. Thank you.

lISA YORK
My lawyer Lisa York is the BEST in PENSACOLA, FL!! I thought that I could have taken on my divorce case without a lawyer but I was wrong. I called Mrs. York and she agreed to meet with me the next day. I loved meeting with Mrs. York because she cares and she made a big difference in my life. Mrs. York asked all the right questions and was straight forward with me. A lawyer that keeps you informed about your case and not blowing smoke (100 points). She would email me, call me and send letters if she wasn’t able to reach me in a certain amount of time if she missed my calls she would immediately return my calls within hours. Mrs. York was recommended to me from a former client and they spoken very highly of her and she lived up to everything they said about her and more. Mrs. York embraces her own in court and in front of whomever when it comes to the protection her client. She made me feel very comfortable and she reinsured me that it was alright. Mrs. York is the Lawyer you need to defend you. I won my case and now stress free without any high legal fees. Thank you!
