Learn Lisa’s areas of practice.

Attorney Lisa Conner co-founded Conner & Roberts, PLLC in September 2010 and is the firm’s managing member. She was born in Chattanooga, and received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga before receiving her Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) from Florida Coastal School of Law.

Upon graduation from law school, Lisa returned home to practice law in her native Tennessee. Her first job as a lawyer was at a large, multi-state defense firm where she was a managing attorney. She started to see how big firms did not serve the needs of local individuals, so she decided to work with Attorney Amelia Roberts to do just that, opening Conner & Roberts, PLLC in 2010.

Ms. Conner focuses her practice on family law, where she has represented numerous clients and helped them navigate the court system. She also represents clients in work-related injuries, workers’ compensation insurance defense, and personal injury, obtaining numerous favorable verdicts for her clients.

As a successful appellate attorney, Lisa won a significant victory in the Tennessee Supreme Court with a leading case on workers’ compensation injuries. She has served as a special judge for the Hamilton County General Sessions Court.

She has litigated numerous cases in district and appellate courts.

Uncontested Divorce
I was elated to make the acquaintance of Noah Conner of Conner & Roberts. Within a week’s time Noah became almost like family through his diligence, hard work, and kind spirit to meet the deadline we were trying to meet . Noah exemplified professionalism and sincere concern and made me feel that I had the best in Chattanooga representing my best interest. Thank you, Noah of the Conner & Roberts team for a job well done!

Truly a great experience
Lisa represented me in my divorce. I was truly astonished as to how smoothly everything went as this was my first time hiring a lawyer and dealing with the court system. She made the whole process so much easier and I found both her and the staff at Conner and Roberts to be very efficient, professional and kind.

Patience goes a long way
Lisa took my case after our consultation. She told me exactly how everything would be discussed and she delivered. We had a few bumps in the road but definitely not on her part. I appreciate her for taken the time for my case. Her staff is very helpful. I always had a quick response. Lisa was in contact with me, not just her staff. That means a lot to me!

Great Attorney
I used Lisa for a pretty nasty divorce. Lisa walked me through the divorce and as bad as divorces are made a bad situation tolerable. I would Highly recommend Lisa and the Conner and Roberts team.

Highly Recommend
I highly recommend Lisa Conner! She worked with me for a year and a half and I have noting but the highest respect for her and her incredible office staff. She is very educated in the law, but what's more is that she knows the system. Lisa knew when we needed to be patient and when it was time to be aggressive and she fought for me and my interests the entire time. I ended up getting exactly what I told her I wanted in our first consultation. Responses to emails and calls were always same day and all questions/concerns were addressed to my satisfaction. The circumstances were unfortunate and I would never want to go through them again, but I am so glad to have had Conner & Roberts representing me.

Excellent representation
Lisa was excellent! She handled all my concerns in a professional yet caring manner. She and her office were efficient, always available and quite calming. It was wonderful to finally have closure and know I had made the right choice with the right attorney. She made things seamless and calmed the chaos with ease.

Highly recommend
When I left an abusive relationship Ms. Conner was a voice for me when I wasn't strong enough to use my own. She never filled me with what I wanted to hear, she was upfront and honest, which I appreciated. She and Ms. Roberts fought for me during my divorce, Order of Protection cases, and mediation. I was always treated with respect. My phone calls and emails were always promptly answered. Ms. Conner is professional and talented and I highly recommend her.

Excellent professional
Lisa Conner was the third lawyer with whom I got in contact after I decided to get a divorce. I was reluctant to talk to Lisa because of the bad experiences I had with two other professionals. When I finally decided to schedule an appoint with her, I was amazed by her professionalism and her ability to connect to a client at a personal level! She is caring, supportive, knowledgeable and of course very competent. Within five days she solved everything for me! I recommend her to all women who want to feel heard and understood by a lawyer when going through such a hard phase.

Kept me from stupid decisions
Had an unconstested divorce in which I planned to give my ex assets without any restrictions, believing she would do the right thing. I protested Lisa against putting any time limits or restrictions for a while but she pressed (in a very kind and firm way) me to do so. I am very grateful I listened to her and let her do some of what she proposed. In hindsight I should have listened to her more. My first time in the situation and should have listened to the wise counsel she provided though experience. While things went well, I see I could have faired a little better had I relented to her suggestions based on her experience in these types of situations. Thanks Lisa!

Excellent Attorney - Very Knowledgeable, Assertive and Professional
I knew after the initial consultation that Lisa was the attorney for me! I wasn't ready at the time but the advice she gave me during the initial consultation helped me figure out strategy for my divorce, which could have been a very complex case due the circumstances. With her advice, we were able to get my spouse to agree to an uncontested divorce and within four months everything was finalized. She resolved the case as quickly as possible, minimizing legal fees. She made sure that everything was in my best interest. Divorce is never easy, but working with her helped me get through the process with minimal stress and anxiety. I highly recommend Lisa Conner.

Very Satisfied
Lisa Conner represented me in my divorce and I couldn't be more satisfied. After listening to the horror stories of my friends' divorces, I was very nervous about the entire process. My first meeting with Lisa put my mind at ease. She gave me great legal and personal advice during this very stressful and emotional time. She considered the financial aspects of my divorce as well as the emotional impact on my son and counseled me on what was best for all involved. I truly feel that because of Lisa's experience and skill, my divorce could not have gone more smoothly and fairly.

My bulldog Attorney
Lisa handled my two year long divorce, as well as the after math of it. She was always the calm to my crazy. She knows the law and what can and cant be done like the back of her hand. Her attention on matters was always quick, responding and updating me in a timely manner, even if it was just a short email to calm my nerves. I'd trust Lisa with my life, all over again.

Best lawyer in Chattanooga
Lisa is easily the best lawyer in Chattanooga. I retained her services with respect to a parenting plan modification. Lisa was always readily available, she listened attentively, and she fought on behalf of my daughter and I. She argued our case brilliantly in court, and we won. She always acted in our best interests and was accountable, professional, available and dependable throughout the whole process. If I had to do it all over again, I'd hire Lisa in a heartbeat. Definitely the best lawyer I could ever have hired. Her efforts have secured a bright future for my daughter, and we will be forever grateful for that.

5 Star Attorney
Lisa Conner is very skilled in the practice of law. She will not only advocate for what's fair in your case but also help you see needs you may not be aware of. Her tone of voice demonstrates her assertiveness yet she is very personable with her clients. I highly recommend Ms. Conner for anyone who needs a strong, reliable attorney for their case.
