Best attorney EVER!!!
Lisa helped me through one of the most trying times in my life! She originally agreed to take my case to do a child support review. Shortly after, I had made some not so great decisions, and needed to go to treatment. This caused repercussions with the custody of my child. Most attorneys would have dropped me as a client, because it was not what they had signed up for. Lisa stayed in constant contact with me, the treatment center, my son's fathers attorney, and the courts. She gave me guidance during a time I didn't know would have a positive outcome. She was caring, genuine, empathetic, and understanding during all of this. Her and her staff were very prompt on returning phone calls, emails, and setting up face to face conferences before and after court dates. She maintained a high level of professionalism with me and in the court room. I could not of been more proud to call her my counsel! I was highly impressed with her performance and dedication inside and outside the court room. She was never afraid to stand up for me when necessary and fight on my behalf. I would highly recommend Lisa and her staff for any and all of your legal needs!

The Very Best
Lisa really went to bat for me in my divorce. She gor me everything I wanted and fought for me like I would think she would had she been in my shoes. Her compassion and diligence is what I needed to get through a very ugly divorce and trying time. The day after it was final my first husband had me served to change our parenting plan. Yet again Lisa showed up with the same vigor and represented not only my but my son. She worked to ensure he was in the best environment possible for his emotional health and as a momma that means the world. I have and will continue to recommend Lisa and her services as they are the very best.

Absoluty the Best!
Lisa helped me get through a long divorce process and was there for me every step of the way. She would answer any questions I had in a knowledgeable and timely manner. She also really pushed and fought for me to obtain the things me and my children needed from my ex to move forward when he was being difficult. I highly recommend her and will definitely use her again if needed!

If I could give 6 stars, I would
From the moment I walked in Lisa's office, I knew she was the lawyer for me. I was an emotional wreck and overwhelmed with an uncertain future. Without her and her assistant Beth I would have been lost. They answered every call, text and email no matter how many times I contacted them. Thank you Lisa for helping me through the worst part of my life. I'm looking to the future and I will keep you updated :)

Best Lawyer in Lebanon Tennessee
Lisa is nothing short of excellence. From the day I reached out to her she was compassionate and caring and had myself and children in the best interest. She stood her ground and fought for what I deserved. I was very sick at the time of my Divorce and she came to the hospital to help me with paperwork and then came to my home so I could sign them. She always returned my phone calls promptly and though my divorce is final, she still calls and checks on me to make sure everything is going well. I would recommend Lisa for any legal matter you may have. Especially divorce.

The Best of the Best!
Lisa is an amazing lawyer! She was supportive every step of the way. She is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. She made sure that I understood my rights and made me aware of what I should expect at every step of the process. Most importantly, she helped me stand up for myself. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone that is looking for an intelligent and driven lawyer that is willing to go above and beyond to meet your needs.

Excellent Lawyer
Ms. Tomlinson was very professional, on time with appointments, emails and paper work. Her advanced knowledge of the laws were very comforting and assisted in quick outcomes. Ms. Tomlinson was always willing to go the extra mile to make sure I understood where we were in the legal process.

Aloof and unorganized in my experience
In my time working with Lisa she was unorganized and either asked for the same things more than once, did not show up with all documentation for things like mediation, and was not as responsive as I had hoped. Lisa did not provide timely follow up without being pushed to do so. Lisa sold herself to me as a fighter, but when things began to unfold seemed to me to be pushing me toward settling. Often times the information she would give me would conflict with information she had given me previously and when I would ask to get a better understanding Lisa seemed to get upset that I was questioning her on nearly any topic. I would not recommend.

Terrible
Terrible person only worried about money doesn't care about the mental health of children. It is essential to stop this woman and associates so they do not hurt anymore children

She keeps child away from parents.
This woman recommended a mother keep her child away from a unmarried father because they wasnt married. Anyone that would allow this woman to work ever again is a disgusting human being. I would hire satan himself before this monster.

Do not use her if you have children.
Lisa is very poor at returning calls or emails. She has none nothing to help my custody case. My child threatened suicide and it too 4 weeks to even get a reply. I supplied everything for my case and she wasn't willing to listen to me and do what I asked of her. IF she ever replied it was not in my favor. Don't waste your $5,000 on her representing you because she will not be available to help. I could not be more disappointed in her "representation" she did not give.
