HAPPILY OFFERING PERSONALIZED, AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION IN FAMILY LAW

As a divorced parent of a teenage boy, I have experienced many of the same emotions and parenting issues as my clients.  I enjoy family, our church, music, theater, sports and our pets and hope to make more time for them.  I am blessed to be a part of a profession that is so fulfilling and truly enjoy my work.

Honest, Trustworthy, and Knowledgeable- Highly Recommended!
I hired Lisa as my divorce attorney and she is very knowledgeable in family law. She is very compassionate and empathetic and she really strives to meet the best interests of her clients and in my case, my child as well. She went above and beyond as far as being responsive and I appreciated her honesty and candor. I was very satisfied with the way she handled my case.

Great lady!!!
Mrs. Canterberry was an awesome person who walked me through one of the hardest and stressful times in life. I would refer her to anyone looking for a tough gal to get you through your divorce. She not only was a great lawyer, she also was a great person to get to know through our interactions. Thank you so much

Extraordinary person
Ms. Canterberry is extraordinary lawyer, but more over she is extraordinary person. She will help you, when no one will. She will guide you smooth to the process, and make it easy for you. She is quick with responses and information's for your case, so you will be informed almost daily. I highly recommend her, because she is the person that you need the most in the most difficult times for you and your family.

Caring, knowledgable and attentive.
Lisa is an amazing attorney! Family court can be stressful, draining, and emotional but with the right representation you’ll never feel any of that. Lisa represented me in a successful custody battle. Although the process was very long, messy, and stressful…I never felt any of that. She is very knowledgeable of family law, attentive to her clients, and professional. If you looking for an amazing family attorney in Dallas, hire Lisa!

Life Saver!
Due to time constraints before a hearing I couldn't find anyone to help me until I called Lisa Canterberry. She didn't hesitate and has a real can do attitude, even answers the phone when you call her. She got my case settled with the other side in 1 day, for much less then I offered them before hiring Lisa, AND I got almost half of my retainer refunded. Hiring Lisa cost me less then if I had not hired her, and most importantly she fights for you when you don't even ask for something, she has your back. The peace of mind she gives is priceless during a time when emotions are high in a family law case.

Amazing Focus with Amazing Results. 100% Recommended.
I could not be happier with the service, professionalism, and focus toward me and my situation that Lisa Baker Canterberry provided. Her drive toward what was fair for my needs and my situation was extremely helpful. While going through one of the toughest times in my life, I counted on her to provide me with the proper advice and next steps toward the entire proceedings. She never failed in this aspect. I also respected her advice and guidance, even when I chose not to follow it. Her support to work on my needs and interests were always the top priority. I am also very appreciative of Lisa always keeping me very aware of my financial standing with her firm and never once providing me with anything different than what we agreed to. This was one of the larger items that kept my stress level down as she was open and willing to discuss any legal confusion I had not understood, until I did. Lisa Canterberry comes highly recommended from me as she helped lower the severity and stress of my situation from beginning to end until my legal proceedings were complete. I ended up being very happy with her negotiations and final results. Thank you for all your amazing support, Lisa!

Simply the Best - Bar None
Contacted Lisa after wasting eight months with a well-known high-dollar attorney. It was a simple divorce case - no kids, house up for sale - but it had been going nowhere. A month later, I switched to Lisa and the difference was dramatic. In the first week, Lisa set up dates for mediation and trial. She talked to the opposing attorney, instead of just leaving voicemails, and kept things on track. Lisa understood the details of my case and was very conscientious of her billable work. I've already recommended Lisa to three people. She is the best and I am so thankful Lisa got my case resolved in just three months.

Blown away and forever grateful!
Honestly it is quite difficult to put into words the customer service and attention Lisa provided me. Every five star review she has is spot on. From my first phone consultation she blew me away. I had sought out a lawyer for a separation/custody case of four children, where another lawyer had given me legal advice that shattered my world. A coworker of mine referred me to Lisa for a second opinion, and when I tell you the amount of disgust I could hear in her voice over the terrible legal counsel I was given previously, I knew she was the strength I need. She is knowledgeable, prepared, efficient, organized, unbelievably attentive, and available when you need her. I don't know how many emails and texts we had until the early hours of the morning or calls going over testimony and evidence. She all but physically held my hand in what must have been the most traumatic fight for my kids. I put my trust in her and I will be forever grateful for what she has given me. I cannot stress how wonderful she was to have on my side while I closed that chapter. Lisa and her team are my go-to for family law and even now for a personal injury case. I would recommend her 1000 times over.

Client focused, diligent and emapthetic communicator.
I found Lisa Baker Canterberry after another attorney and his office kept dropping the ball missed meetings, failed to respond to my concerns, and typoed my name, missed deadlines. I had to seek a different attorney to take over my case, and was extremely blessed to have Lisa take over my case; she communicated extremely effectively over texts, emails and phone calls, even after hours and on weekends and holidays. Unheard of service! She scramble quickly to meet deadlines, with her clients priorities and needs at heart. She immediately identified next steps and reassured me with an action plan, answering any of my numerous questions and worked on my case after hours, staying in constant contact throughout the process. Lisa is clearly passionate about her work, and puts her clients first. Honest, fair, dependable, trustworthy, hard-working and empathetic, are just a few of her qualities, collective traits which are rare in her profession. I am truly thankful that she represented me in my case.

Divorce Case
I used Lisa in my divorce and she was extremely helpful. She was not afraid to tell me how it was and to help steer me in the correct direction. Although there is not winning or losing in divorce, I was extremely happy with the outcome of my divorce and would recommend her to anyone looking for help.

Highly recommend!
Lisa is very professional, transparent, and knowledgeable. She walked me through the whole divorce process and made sure I was aware of what was going on behind the scenes as well as checking in to make sure I understood everything. She is attentive and responds quickly to any questions or concerns, and is very respectful to her clients even going so far as to use their preferred name and pronouns. I highly recommend her if you need any help with a divorce or anything in her area of expertise.
