Success with payment from used car dealer
Ms Lisa Berdine was instrumental in securing a payment I was to have received from a used car salesperson. The salesperson/owner was reluctant to tender payment for cost I incurred on a vehicle purchased from him.. He signed the receipt promising to refund money for repairs to said vehicle After repeated attempts to secure the money, I contacted Ms. Berdine. She spoke with the owner and the full amount was remitted to me after she forwarded a document indicating that the case would be filed in court if he continued to refuse to cooperate. I was very pleased with Ms Berdine's efforts in securing the money on my behalf..

Outstanding professionalism
Attorney Berdine is very direct in her communication. This is great because she doesn't sugar coat the process which allows her clients the opportunity to be prepared for what's to come. She is well versed in the law and isn't intimidated by the opposing council. Attorney Berdine is knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend her to anyone that needs an attorney.

Attorney Berdine Review
Attorney Berdine is an awesome lawyer! She is very professional and responsive. She always keeps me informed and up to date on my case. She also is good about getting back to messages within 24 hours. I highly recommend her as a lawyer, you will not be disappointed!

professionalism and compassion unmatched
Lisa has literally been fantastic. She has helped me through setting up child support and custody arrangements with an ex who is more than uncooperative. She has never been afraid to tell me I was wrong but helps me understand and correct it before any ill effect comes after me. I owe her much more than her fees require. Her compassion, professionalism, and her knowledge is yet to be matched.

Attorney Berdine is extremely professional and knowledgeable.
Attorney Berdine was a rock during a very difficult time for me. I hired her to handle my divorce. She advised me and held my hand through a most painful 18 months. When situations arose, she kept me informed and responded in a very timely manner. Her professionalism was exemplary. Her knowledge of family and business law was very reassuring.

Wonderful experience all around.
Attorney Berdine is an outstanding attorney. Before meeting her I thought all lawyers were the same. She is definitely unique and provides her clients with a unique experience from the initial consultation to the close of the case. I would recommend her to my family and friends. Exceptional attorney!

| Hired Attorney
Speaking with Lisa during our initial conversation left me hopeful that I found someone who would diligently represent me. Unfortunately, instead of diligence I ecountered difficulty and frustration. She was tardy for phone conferences that had been scheduled weeks ahead or would cancel them at the last minute leaving me lost and confused to the status of my case. Documents that she crafted were inadequate, ambigious and open to the interpetation and whims of opposing council. This caused great aggrivation and extra expense to me. When the problems became evident, instead of correcting them, she seemed to take offense that her work was being questioned and while claiming to still be representing me, she was absent and no longer available to help or comunicate in ways that mattered. Obvious errors and over charges were made in my billing statement (I was being charged for work in someone elses name on a similiar case), when I pointed this out, again she took offense that anyone would correct her or her billing practices. Overall, she did little to help me and left me with lots of loose ends that I have had to handle alone. I really needed someone who cared more and followed up on the statements and assurances she made in our initial consultation.
