    This lawyer is way to busy. U need someone who cares and is on Your case. They dont follow up. They dont fight Hard, to soft spoken, and is not firm at all.!! If dont want to lose, then dont go to them. I never got Any Stuff from divorce like i was suppose to. When it was all done, they sent a paper saying what i was to have from divorce and at the end I never recieved a thing. They just expected their letter was going to make the other defendent give my Stuff Back, which never happen. They dont have Your childrens best intrest . They knew the defendent was a bad acholic and put hands on the Kids. They didnt try , they lost.

    Lisa Douglas’s response: “We can tell who this person is by the word choice. Not every case can be won, particularly when the client withholds important information about drug use from the lawyer in the preparation process and then gets hit with it at a hearing. (By making this accusation, confidentiality is waived to the extent necessary to defend.) The welfare of the children and our clients’ rights and position are always our top concern, and we fight hard for our clients. This client, however, chose to keep the lawyer in the dark as to critical facts, from embarrassment or whatever, but that is always a mistake for the client because it leads to bad outcomes and can tie the lawyer’s hands in the case to be surprised. Here, these circumstances led to a less than desired outcome for the client. We regret that outcome, but it was the client’s own fault.”

    I have used other lawyers and none compare to Lisa. She is top notch. She looked out for my interests and was fierce in the courtroom. You don't want to be on the other side of her cases. Lisa was always there for me and always kept me informed of everything going on in my case. She knew the law better than her opponents. I am so thankful I found her, she's truly a hidden gem. I can't say enough good things about what she did for me.

    My sister is how I found out about Douglas. My sister had hired her to handle a PP & PI claim for her a year ago and wasn't thrilled with the services provided. She mentioned that getting Lisa to actually call her back or keep her up-to-date about the status of her claim was like "pulling teeth without the dental tools." She also claimed that there were times that she asked her about a certain detail in the case and was not given the correct information.
    For me, my consultation wasn't all that much better. It took a few days to get a return phone call or email response. I initially called the office and her receptionist said she was out and would return my call shortly. "Shortly" turned into never, so I sent an email. The email was responded to, but it took almost the entire week and when she did she was dull in her response. I figured it was just the workload she might've been under, but I'm still unsure. Although, my review is honest and regardless of the fact that my rating is "average," that doesn't mean she might not help someone else. Given the proper timing, she possibly could've helped me as well. My sister might've not felt as if she could trust her to do what she was paid to do, but I can't say that for the next person. It's unfortunate that I wasn't able to get passed the third email with this attorney. I pass her office all the time, but never know when she is in the office. I still have the email as being unanswered to this day. It is fine, hope she helps someone else.

    Lisa Douglas’s response: “This comment saddens and disappoints me because it sounds more like a former disgruntled employee than a true former client. I checked back through my records and did not find a Jennifer with this type of case nor did I find any emails from a Jennifer. I feel sad for you because you feel you have to blast me on a public forum with untruths, posing as a former client instead of yourself.”

    Ms. Douglas is unquestionably the best attorney I have ever known. She works very hard for her clients and has a strong desire to give personal attention. She is knowledgeable in medical, legal, and genuine human kindness. I highly recommend her for any legal problem you may have. She is extremely qualified.

    She responded to me promptly, but when it came down to getting the case filed in court she was not there for me as initially promised. She lied about the reasoning for not wanting to help me and this made me think twice about her as a lawyer!

    Lisa Douglas’s response: “I couldn't agree more with the comments above concerning the need for anonymous reviews to be screened and verified before posting, and the need to allow for legal recourse if it is determined that a review is fraudulent or unwarranted. AVVO should also offer some sort of pre-complaint process where anyone posting a negative review such as this would first be required to either resolve any miscommunication or misunderstanding with their attorney and/or to certify that they have previously made a good faith attempt to do so and that all other remedies have been exhausted. If AVVO does not ensure the integrity of the review process, then they risk their site becoming like many of the other generic consumer review sites that have little or no credibility due to their lack of quality control. I've referred to some of the answers that Lisa has posted on AVVO in the past and have always found her guidance to be well-reasoned and thorough. This leads me to believe the negative review above is inconsistent with both her online reputation and her reputation within the legal community.”
