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.
