Highly Recommend
Lisa was very professional but also relaxed and comfortable to work with unlike some other lawyers I have experienced. She was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions and asked me questions about things I hadn't thought about that I needed in my will. She was great to work with and I will definitely call her again for any other legal needs I might have in the future.

Review -- Lisa Chesley
After my husband's death, I needed legal advice. Chesley, Harvey & Carpenter, PLLP was recommended so I stopped in and was given a Client Estate Plan Information form to fill out. October 17, '16, I had a consultation with Lisa Chesley who made recommendations and filled out an Engagement Agreement. On November 7th, I met with Lisa to sign legal forms and she completed the legal work I requested. On December 20th, Lisa sent a final letter with original and copies I needed. Lisa Chesley was a godsend to me, very helpful, kind and considerate and patient, very professional. This was a good experience for me and I would definitely recommend Lisa and seek her counsel again as needed. NOTE: This involved both a consultation (no charge, which I appreciated) and I "hired" Lisa to execute the legal work.

Prompt & Professional
I had never imagined to be going through a divorce. I didn't know what to do, what to expect.... Lisa Chesley was extremely helpful with answering my questions and guiding me through the divorce process. When I needed to contact her with questions, she was extremely prompt in answering them. A divorce is extremely stressful- so to have your questions answered promptly is a huge thing. It provided relief just knowing that she had answers and guidance for me. There were times that I felt completely alone and just having her support and guidance truly helped. Lisa Chesley was extremely professional and I'm thankful she represented me during my divorce.
