Excellent lawyer
I worked with Lisa Barquist on a civil matter five years ago. . She is hardworking, knowledgeable, creative, and honest. She is personable as well. With her combined experience in both civil and criminal fields, she is unusually capable.

Scarce resource
Talk about a scarce resource when it comes to attorneys.. I have worked and dealt with many law firms in the past; however, none of them are as hard working, dedicated, HONEST, compassionate, trust worthy, and well experienced as Lisa. Lisa was able to obtain results quickly, whereas other attorneys will generally take months just to accomplish the same. Lisa's fearless approach, armed with knowledge and experiences, in representing the client when it comes to legal matters is priceless. Lisa always have our best interest at heart and in mind. For our company, Lisa's performances and services are highly valued since we were able to resume and focus on business while she takes care of the necessary legal matters. Furthermore, Lisa's dedication and integrity made us felt like we have one of the best in house attorney from within the company.

Assistant United States Attorney
I worked together with Lisa for several years in the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Florida, where she tried numerour criminal and civil cases. Lisa was a tireless worker and fierce advocate for her client. She was invariably diligent, well-prepared and effective in her representation. She achieved a perfect record for the United States, including cases which were legally and factually challenging. I would recommend her wholeheartedly and without reservation.
