  • Joseph A. Lavigne

    Lisa is an outstanding attorney. She is very bright, honest, well prepared, respected, and does a great job for her clients. I have had the opportunity to work as opposing counsel with her on a number of matters as well as representing clients in common, and to have seen her work in many other cases. She is a consummate professional, fighting hard for her clients but always fighting fair. Her mere presence on a case gives her clients an edge. She is the kind of attorney you want by your side when the chips are down.
