Highly Pleased
Ms. Ewing was very professional and a joy to work with. She was very detailed and both her and her staff made sure I understood the details of the process for my divorce. They made me feel very comfortable during the process and kept me well informed during each stage. I would refer her to my family and friends and plan on using her other services in the future.

Outstanding attorney
Mrs. Ewing is an awesome attorney I used her with my divorce as well as child support issue involving my child's father. She's very professional and goes above and beyond for her client.

Looking for a divorce Attorney? Lisa Ewing is the best!!
I was married almost 30 years and never expected I would divorce, but I did. Lisa Ewing and her Staff literally guided me through the process. I’m positive I would have not received my portion of my Marital estate if I had not have hired Lisa Ewing. She’s expensive and worth every penny. I would hire her again.

Amazing, relentless, fights for the underdog
Lisa was an amazing resource for me during one of the most difficult times in my life. She was an advocate for my family and always listened to what I wanted and tried her best to get it. She is extra knowledgeable, flexible, relentless, and tough. I highly recommend her!

Experience, Dedicated and Reliable
These three words speak volumes about the caliber of person that attorney Ewing exemplifies. The honesty and straightforward approach by attorney Ewing is a great benefit to any client who retains her. She is very meticulous, and she exceeded my expectations and how hard she worked to navigate my complicated legal situation. We are in a day and time where integrity is difficult to find in combination with experience and steadfastness. Her knowledge of the civil court system, process and people make her one of Nashville‘s finest in family law. She represents a unique combination of qualities that is difficult to find. I think Judge Phillip Robinson said it the best, “Your attorney has done an excellent job in preparing for this case.”

Very Prepared
I wouldn't wish a divorce on anyone but if you have to go through one Lisa is a great attorney for representation. She was well prepared and gave valuable insight for each step of the process. She was prompt with her communication and her experience was valuable.

Heart and Smart
Lisa handled our son's divorce and custody case. She was hard working, very professional and took the time to understand the complications of the case and effectively communicate them to the court. This enabled us to get a custody arrangement that put the kids first. Her efforts to make the case involved finding and using external resources such as detectives and expert witnesses and she is well connected in the community. We will be forever grateful to Lisa for helping to put the kids in an environment in which they can thrive.

Excellent consultation
Ms. Ewing was very helpful in explaining how to proceed in our case with the different options on what to file and how it would be handled. She listened, asked questions and really took the time to get to know us and the situation.

She Gets it Done!
Do NOT under estimate this sweet woman. As friendly and as sweet as she is, she will fight for what is right until it is won. My husband and I hired Ms. Ewing after several long years of back and forth with his ex-wife. While the outcome still took almost two years, at no fault of her own, when we did finally make it to court Lisa was a force to be reckoned with. She knew what we wanted as parents, she knew what our child wanted and she made that her priority, never faltering. Ms. Ewing argued this case like it was her own family she was fighting for. She was an amazing advocate for my husband, she fought for him and his rights as a father every step of the way. Ms. Ewing handled mediation and several hearings for us. She was very careful never to underestimate the opposing attorney. She was prepared at every turn her attention to detail is amazing. She was always ready to fight ready to fight for what was right. In the end, the VERY expensive opposing attorney whose reputation proceeded them was forced to settle. My husband and I walked away satisfied and with exactly what we wanted. We can never thank her enough. My advice to anyone is listen to Ms. Ewing. She knows the courts and she knows what she is talking about, and to be as invested in your own case as she is. Ms. Ewing is a professional and empathetic. She will do all she can for you, she will be honest, and she will get the job done to 100% of her ability. Ms. Ewing will be our permanent attorney for all family law matters. I would recommend her to anyone needing family law assistance.

Trustworthy, Understanding, So Helpful!
I went to Lisa for a consultation about changing my shared custody parenting plan. She was well-versed in the way the different county's courts tend to "go," the ins and outs of each court's politics, and could tell me up front how strong of a case I had (not much, in my instance, which I suspected, but it was very worth the time, effort, and consultation fee to have her give me that feedback).

Highly recommend Lisa Ewing
I went for a complimentary consult to Lisa and immediately was put at ease with regards to my non-contested divorce inquiry. She listened to what I desired, made great suggestions and was extremely patient with my particular situation over the length of time it ended up taking to work out issues that cropped up along the way. Her current paralegal is most excellent! I would recommend Lisa and her staff to anyone interested in hiring an Attorney.

Child Support Over-payment
Mrs. Ewing helped me with a case that involved child support over payment. Child support services garnished my wages for no reason 4+ years ago and trying to recoup my over payment. Very complicated case to say the least. Mrs. Ewing resolved my issues. Yes issues had to go to court two different times to recoup my money from the state. She handle my case with professionalism and determination. Just wish I knew of Lisa Ewing back 6 years ago when I stared my divorce. I can tell you this I would of not been in the mess I was in. Lisa Ewing resolved my issue(s) and I would recommend her to my friends and for that matter anyone that may ask me for an attorney reference. One big point I would like to make is. Always returned my phone calls and her paralegal was very helpful as well. If I ever need an attorney again. I know who I will hire without a doubt! Lisa Ewing

I Highly recommend Lisa Ewing!
My husband and I hired Lisa for a child custody case. We were very happy with her work as well as her paralegal, Cecil. She was very knowledgeable about the TN laws and was upfront with us about if we had a good case or not. Ultimately, we had our previous parenting plan updated with a newer and more improved version. Lisa made sure to get us everything we were asking for. On a side note, she also worked on my prenup and did an excellent job on that. We would highly recommend Lisa and would use her again, if needed. Many thanks to Lisa and Cecil!

Great Divorce Lawyer!
Attorney Lisa Ewing knows divorce law -- including post-divorce issues; child-support arrearage issues; Father's Rights; and Juvenile Court. Would definitely hire her again if my ex steps out of line.

My "Voice"...
Mrs. Lisa has had to be my "voice" on two separate occasions post-divorce. There were times during both proceedings that I wanted to lash out at my ex, but Mrs. Lisa has a way of relaying 'my feelings' in such a manner that is "stern" & truthful, yet with a level of professionalism that is unparalleled in most attorneys. She's been "my voice"!!! Hopefully, I will not need an attorney in the future, but should I need one, I will ALWAYS try to seek her help.

Excellent to work with!
Lisa did an excellent job helping me with my uncontested divorce in 2015. She was extremely timely in responses, friendly, professional and best of all -- CLEAR -- on what she needed, timelines and expectations. I was dreading dealing with an attorney during such a big life event, but she made it SO much easier. Would highly recommend to a friend or family member.
