Exceptional!!
Navigating through a divorce is a difficult and draining experience. My specific situation with my now "ex" had me battling some real challenges regarding our income, assets and child custody. I found myself so overwhelmed with where to begin the legal process and am so thankful I choose Lisa to help me through it. I have referred people to her who have been equally as happy. She is very skilled and professional, highly respected in her field, and brings the right amount of compassion + perseverance that you will need to survive this process and move past it with the best possible outcomes!

Honest. Prepared. Proactive. High Integrity.
Lisa was retained to support me during an unexpected divorce situation. From the early consultation, through completion of a case that took surprise twists due to hostile and often irrational opposition, every interaction with Lisa and her team was first class. Nobody wishes a divorce situation, but when one presents itself the only answer is thorough preparation, a solid plan, and proactive representation. Lisa excelled in having me prepared for every eventual scenario, and even when crazy was the order of the day, the result achieved allowed me and my family to move forward in a positive manner. Much of this was due to Lisa's preparation, integrity and insistence that a positive outcome is achieved by doing things the right way. We were always better prepared than our opponents and ultimately achieved the best possible outcome. Before the case was even settled, it was evident that my life was going to be much better post-divorce, and Lisa helped me see this before I even knew it myself. I recommend her without hesitation.

Highly recommend
Ms. Cyr is an exceptional family law attorney. She has exceeded my expectations and has always been supportive and understanding. Ms. Cyr is professional, knowledgable, and ethical. My divorce and child custody case has been complicated and ugly to say the least. My children's best interest has always been first and foremost. She has helped me obtain full physical and legal custody of my children. Ms. Cyr is very responsive, honest, and fair. She set responsible expectations and kept me informed. She has excellent communication skills and is able to guide you through a very stressful and emotional situation. I highly recommend her because of her experience, ethics, and integrity. My family is forever grateful. Thank you!
