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!

Lisa York represented me in a criminal case regarding a DUI and some drug charges. It was my first time being in trouble, so I really needed some help navigating the legal system and defending myself. Lisa was there for me every step of the way. She was really great about staying in touch with me to keep me updated on my case. Lisa was able to help me get several false charges dismissed, a development I was really grateful for. I felt very comfortable about having her represent me because she knows many people in the local courts. Transparency in billing is another benefit.

I can think of no more empathetic, compassionate, yet effective attorney for those who find themselves dealing with a family law matter. Whether it is a divorce, property or custody matter, Lisa York doesn't just take care of the legal work, she does it with a keen appreciation for how the disruption and uncertainty of their lives affects her clients and their families. I would endorse Lisa York for any family law matter.
