AMAZING ATTORNEY----THE BEST FAMILY LAWYER IN TEXAS
In my opinion, Lisa Garza is the best family law attorney in Texas! She handled my modification case, and she was absolutely amazing! She will tell you what is best for you and give you the guidance and direction to get through a tough, nasty case (child custody, support & abuse). I felt like she really cared about me and my children. She truly cares about her clients. She is honest, trustworthy, responsible, and dependable. Lisa goes above and beyond to give you excellent legal counsel. She has an excellent court reputation and reputation amongst her peers. More than that, she delivers in court. Lisa is definitely the attorney you want on your side. I highly recommend her!

I WOULD DEFINITELY HIRE LISA!
The best decision I ever made in my entire life was hiring Lisa Garza as my divorce attorney. Lisa is a true professional and an asset to the legal profession. She is a truly smart, competent, and skilled litigator who is knowledgeable, attentive, compassionate, proactive, and results oriented. She knows the law, and I believe she helped me get everything I was allowed under the law. She looks at the big picture keeping in mind your best interests. She is up front and honest with you, and she listens and fights for what you want. I had 4 other attorneys before I found Lisa, and none of them achieved the results in court for me that Lisa did. A couple of the attorneys charged much more than Lisa and had a lot larger staff than Lisa, but they didn't get me the results that Lisa did. Working with some of these lawyers was really a bad experience---a nightmare. I can't say enough about Lisa and my experience with her. The best money I ever spent was hiring Lisa as my divorce attorney. Lisa is worth every dollar I spent and much more.

Highly Recommended
We had an amazing experience working with Lisa Garza. She represented my cousin in divorce & Child custody matters. Working with Lisa is very comforting for my cousin during a very painful divorce process. She worked extremely well with the opposing counsel and took our requests to the table to attain a winning outcome in a very frustrating divorce. I appreciate the work she did for us and hands down will recommend her in the future!!

Get her as your lawyer before the other side does
I contacted Ms Garza to handle a change in custody for one of my two sons, who both lived with their mom after I moved out of the immediate area after said son had issues with his mom's husband. I thought I had a horrible uphill battle ahead of me, until she represented me. Lisa broke it down for me what we could do, and I could tell right away I made the right decision. Her name alone let's the other side know you didn't come to screw around. She is dynamite, aggressive yet personable to her clients, and her associate and office staff are first class. I never had to worry about a phone call or question not being answered or returned. She gave me great guidance, and made suggestions that suited my son and me for now and in the future. She is no non-sense with her approach, and it seems most opposing attorney's are more than willing to work with her toward a mutual solution, but never did she compromise what mattered most to me. I cannot recommend her enough to anyone about to take the monster of divorce on, especially with children involved. I was made to feel like she had no other clients in the world, that I was the only one. I was so grateful I had the opportunity to retain Ms. Garza, and you will be too. She is fantastic to negotiate outside the court room, but if it comes to needing an in court force to be reckoned with, it's Ms. Garza.

Phenomenal Attorney!
Lisa, to say the least, is an angel!!! I used a different lawyer through my initial divorce process and custody order. A few months after our divorce was finally finalized, my ex husband decided to send me back to court once again (with ridiculous request and no legitimate cause). My family and I decided we wanted a lawyer to teach them a lesson and showed no mercy. We researched Many lawyers and decided Lisa was The one. Lisa shows an abundant amount of intelligence, sophistication, and class. She is well respected by everyone. She not only advises you to the best of her ability, but genuinely cares about your child. Don’t let her height fool you either, she’s an absolute beast in the court room. Our first lawyer left a lot of loose strings and vague statements in our initial order. I could be happier with our newer final order. My ex husband definitely learned his lesson regarding taking advantage of me. Lisa thank you for all you do , and continue to do ! The world needs more genuine, amazing lawyers like you.

Great Lawyer For Family Law
Lisa was great in handling my case. She kept me up to date throughout the process. Lisa takes the time to listen and explain in detail the process and expectations. I would highly recommend her not only for the reasonable cost but her thoughtfulness with handling my case.

Dedicated, Professional, & Fearless
We were relieved to be represented by Lisa. Our case involved many lies, along with the other attorney constantly bringing up things that had no relevance in our case. Lisa fought to bring out the truth by staying proactive and deliberate, all while showing professionalism and class. The time she invested in our case truly paid off in the end. Lisa works with integrity and fights for her clients. Her knowledge and skill set her apart from the rest. We would highly recommend her to any and everyone!

Very Pleased
I had Lisa assist me with my divorce that was particularly tricky. I had a very erratic and unpredictable ex spouse to deal with. She helped me every step of the way and I am finally out of woods and back to living my life. Thank you Lisa, and for anyone reading this don't hesitate to have Lisa help you with your case.

Great Family Law Attorney
My children are my life and Lisa understood that. She worked with determination and a compassionate heart in helping my wife and I get custody of my children. Her knowledge of family law was vast. It was clear in the courtroom that she had the respect of her peers and the judges. I highly recommend Lisa Garza for any family law issues that need to be resolved. She did a great job for us!

Lisa G Garza: A Mindful and Upright Family Lawyer
This letter is written on behalf of Lisa Garza in reference to her assignment to my custody dispute concerning my son, age 10. Lisa was hired in February of 2013 and the case was not concluded until December of 2014. During that timeframe, and no doubt in times to come when dealing with these complicated matters, I came to trust and rely on the expertise from Lisa and her office staff. From her own demanding calendar she managed to accommodate my hectic schedule, which was important to prepare me in advance for all legal appearances and documentation. Her office staff is always available to take calls and is graciously willing to answer questions within their reason. There was never an unreasonable gap in correspondence time or any sense of being “brushed off” or ignored. There were countless, tiresome motions to discuss, which would have been a frustrating undertaking if not for Lisa’s patience and guidance. She worked studiously to protect my rights by defining every ambiguity, closing every open sentence, and adding warrants overlooked or misaligned by opposing counsel. Due to her diligence, I went into depositions and courtrooms, highly unpleasant places, with intact confidence. I truly would have felt lost and vulnerable without her. I would be remiss if I did not mention that outside of business, I have the utmost admiration and respect for her personal ethics. There is a strong sense of justice working within her and a refreshing lack of discrimination. She is truly an advocate of social justice. In a world that is seemingly losing more and more of its conscientiousness every day, Lisa is one of the few people I’ve met that has the integrity to gift some back. I cannot speak highly enough of Lisa. Without a doubt, she comes with my highest recommendation as a mindful and upright family law counselor.

Fantastic family lawyer!
Lisa kicked butt in court. She was well prepared, and a fierce fighter when it came to the court room! She really cares about you and your case. She won my children back for me! She is the best family lawyer I have ever worked with and would recommend her to anyone who need a kick butt lawyer! Hiring Lisa was the best decision I have ever made! You won't be disappointed!

The smallest most innocent looking WOLF....
This is the smallest and most innocent WOLF I have ever met. She takes charge, learns the case quick, and is understanding to needs. Always quick to return your phone call and keep you up to speed on current events with the case. Did I mention she's a wolf? Yeah wait until you see this lady in court. She is the best decision my wife and I ever could have made and we only hope she can continue to change others lives for the better. We will never look to anyone else except Lisa now. Loyal, trustworthy, and hunting for the best options in the case, she's the wolf you don't mind hanging out with.!!!
