Car Accident Settlement
Lisa was an excellent choice as my attorney and was very effective in settling my case. Lisa was a skilled advocate for me and guided me carefully through the legal process. Lisa is dedicated to serving her clients and is an honest and incredibly hard-working attorney. Lisa is confident, knowledgeable and well prepared. She always had time to answer all my questions.

Worthy Of The Title "Super Lawyer"!
Lisa's expertise is incredible. She represented me in the most professional manner. Her attention to detail, competence and personal integrity make her the attorney, I would recommend to anyone seeking a lawyer worthy of the title "Super Lawyer".

Sama advocate .attorney
I would recommend this attorney to anybody. She does treat the clients with compassion she put the smile back again in my 7 years old daughter because she kept locking for the truth to find out thats i am good father and the child has a very strong bond with the me .the ex wife tried every thing to make me lock like i am a bad father but thanks to Lisa Bangert to bring the truth after meeting with the child and the parents and now thanks to you Lisa i see my child very happy by spending more time with my child .so if you are truly good mother or father this is the right attorney for you but if you some one try to hide the truth and try go take revenge for some one divorce you by using your child as part of your revenge Lisa bangert she is very smart and she will discover the truth by locking to your child face .what i am trying to say is Lisa will take care of your child and do what is best for your child and put the smile and happiness in your child face so if you not scare of the truth and you wont to see your child Lisa is wonderful lady and i am shore she is a great mother because in my case she was a great mother for my child and my child feels very comfortable and relax every time she has abutment with her .thank you lisa

I spoke with Lisa for 12min while on a break at work. Dad and I had same routine for 13yrs. Dad is prejudice and my fiancé is African American, I’m now considered a N lover and dad since hired an attorney. This is what dad does his entire life hires attorneys when he is mad or to get out of trouble, he has 3 DWI’s. My fiancé is a substitute teacher and supervisor at a very large company. Dad does not work has an unsafe home. No bathroom sink, showers don’t work, a junk yard, literally. Dad never enrolled any of our kids in school or sports. Never showed up at school or sporting events. Well after a 12min talk with Lisa she decided I sleep by my fiancé every night, he lives 18hrs away for the last 2yrs. I never missed a day of work in 2yrs so u tell me how that’s possible. Dad convinced our son he’d get the child support money. Well since I’ve seen my son dressed poorly, enrolled himself in school, was not at dads all summer long, out running around with friends. Been in trouble that normally he wouldn’t have. Called me several times to pick him up cause dad didn’t show up, has no friends sleep over, well he’s embarrassed of the “house”. Lisa herself said my son was influenced by dad. Well why let a drunk and a 13yr old convince her it’s ok for dad to have custody when I clearly had all evidence that dad never enrolled in school, sports, took shopping and drank a ton all day and night. I’m sitting watching my son suffer. I told everyone I did not have money to fight but figured I had all this evidence why it would not be good for our son. Physical proof. Thus is so so so sad. Heartbreaking. From a 12min conversation are u kidding me. Even if my fiancé was in this state i was home and never missed a beat with my kids. Not a beat. Horrible that it’s about money and letting a 13yr old convince you cause dad pressured him. Well my son I can promise is now regretting this just like I told the courts he would. Now what? I can’t hire an attorney??? My son now suffers. What a shame do not I repeat do not let Lisa represent your child. She put mine in an unsafe and horrible situation. Heartbroken!

Very Bad Laywer and Parent Coordinator
She does not have any intrest in finding the facts. If you get her as a Parent Coordinator as a male you will loose every desion and she will not even care. just threating you to make you pay for it all.

Would give a 0 if I could
Stay away from this lady. If you’re appointed her ask for someone else. She is the absolute worst! Doesn’t ever respond to you. Doesn’t look out for best interest of your child what so ever! Doesn’t even do her own investigations relies on others and then goes off their opinions of the matter. I mean I could go on and on. She will basically destroy families. BEWARE!!!!

Doesn’t do due diligence
Lisa didn’t do her due diligence until the order in my sons case was already issued. She has preconceived notions that you can’t get her off of, and doesn’t hear reason. For the sake of your family, stay away.
Response from Lisa Bangert May 10, 2019
I do not represent Ben, but the best interests of his child. The case is pending, we are partially through a trial, and therefore I will withhold comments until all the evidence is in.

Horribly unethical
I've been a client of Lisa Bangert for over 4 years. I can't get rid of her. She is the most unethical person I've ever met. She is ruining my child's life. She only communicates with my ex-wife's attorney and she makes every effort to show one-sided evidence to the judge. She does not return phone calls, emails or follow court orders. if you can avoid her you are better off doing so.

Response from Lisa Bangert August 23, 2018
Clearly this person is NOT my client (my "clients" are children and their best interests). My role, as a Court-appointed Guardian ad Litem, is to help protect and support a child's best interests, so that a child is safe, secure and can thrive. That sometimes means presenting evidence of a parent's poor choices which have harmed or are likely to significantly harm their child. However, I believe that all children should have a healthy relationship with both parents, and I strive to find resources, ideas and solutions so that can happen. Unfortunately, some parents find it easier to criticise the messenger than to work towards the goal of having a healthy relationship with their child.
