As a practitioner with over twenty years experience, I am deeply committed to the concept that divorce and family law proceedings should be a vehicle to move two people away from each other with respect and dignity.  Unfortunately, many times this is not the case.  As a result, the children and extended families of the clients are often pulled into a whirlpool of emotional decay and financial ruin.  These situations require an experienced professional who can by-pass needless litigation and move toward a results-oriented goal.


I believe that good people often find themselves in difficult circumstances with little or no understanding of the true policy considerations underlying the Florida Statutes on Dissolution of Marriage, Shared Parenting, time sharing, Child Support, Spousal Support, and Equitable Distribution.  These are critical issues that must be dealt with strategically and professionally in order to provide a new foundation to each party for the future.


It is with the above in mind that I strive to represent each client to the best of my ability.

Child Custody
While going through a very emotional and stressful situation Lise won my case in court. She was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Lise and her staff were caring, patient and always prepared. I am extremely grateful!

A true child advocate.
Lise took excellent care of our family's needs during a difficult relocation case. The staff was extremely thorough and communication was top notch. Lise was extremely professional and a true child advocate. We highly recommend Hudson Family Law.

Lise shed any ill feelings towards lawyers I may have had. Thru my 1&1/2 year divorce her staff & her instilled confidence in me. She was asked to fight off four "pitbull attornies" my wife had hired to gain unwarranted finances from me. Lise did so with her expertise of family law without being overly aggressive or hurtful. She showed empathy towards both parties involved & stressed her points of law & knowledge time & time again. Her knowledge of case law was outstanding. Thru the divorce, all emails & phone calls from me were returned within 24 hours if not within an hour. There was none of this "Sorry, but Lise is in a meeting". Once I was very upset, Lise was out of town & when her plane landed, she called me from the airport. What other attny does this ? She took my case personally, I truly believe this. I also could not help but notice the respect she got from the opposing counsel. She is a cut above the rest & I was blessed to have found her

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have worked with Ms Hudson on many matters over the years and I continue to refer clients to her whenever a family law matter comes to me. Shes a compassionate counselor and a talented litigator and I wholeheartedly endorse her."
Family Attorney | Jun 29
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I had a very high conflict complex case that was litigated for several months before my client retained Ms. Hudson as co-counsel to help us prepare for trial against a Biglaw firm. Ms. Hudson did a superb job on her portion of the case, including preparing our client's testimony and completing a brilliant cross examination of the opposing party. She has an in-depth knowledge of family law, a great deal of experience and is a pleasure to work with. Her office functions like a fine tuned machine and she is a formidable lawyer. It is my pleasure to endorse Lise Hudson and her firm."
Family Attorney | Jan 02
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I worked on a case with Ms. Hudson, where my non- party client was dragged into a family law enforcement action. While Ms. Hudson and I did not represent the same clients, her client's interests were often aligned with my client against one of the most vitriolic attorneys that I have come across in my 25 years of practice. Throughout her involvement in the case, Ms. Hudson maintained her professionalism and civility in the face of personal and ad hominem attacks. Her legal positions were well grounded. As a result, I highly endorse this lawyer."
