DREAM TEAM
The best period. Lisa and her team are the most caring and devoted individuals. Lisa is a bulldog in court! She gets the truth out of people. I hired her for the impossible (termination of parental rights). The Dream Team went over and beyond for the safety and well being of my child and were successful! If you are looking for an attorney, don't look any further!

Dad in the state of Texas
2 years ago my husband went into a very fierce and fiery custody battle. Being in the state of Texas he didn’t think it was even possible to try to get 50/50 custody. He found Lisa after a horrible first time around with another attorney for his divorce. He met consulted with her and came home saying she was willing to help him. After NUMEROUS ups and downs and going through multiple ringers she won us sole custody of his kids. During these years we suffered heartache and frustrations. Lisa and Sky took us in as if we were family and walked through the ENTIRE process with us. Words cannot begin to explain how much they eased our mind and made us feel as if dads had just as much rights for their kids. Lisa upheld every word and did not disappoint in any aspect.

Best attorney and paralegal, have no doubt.
If you need an attorney that will actually fight for you, who genuinely cares, communicative, it’s Ms. Moran. She is the one. Very professional, and purely exceptional at her job. Sky, her paralegal, they don’t get any better. Made our super stressful and complicated experience an absolute breeze. Just like Ms. Moran, Sky genuinely cares and she will make sure you know it. Always going to extra mile to communicate, to make you feel heard, and to show you the way, step by step. Absolute professional. The Sunday at 10pm kind of hard worker, for you. Don’t take the chance of being in the opposite room of these two professionals. By the end, you’ll feel like family, and have the results you were looking for, have no doubt. My wife, children, and me will forEVER be grateful for these two ladies, and the team behind them. Don’t wait, hire this team now!

BEST ATTORNEY
I'm writing this review with a FULL heart. Because of Lisa's knowledge and willingness to fight for me and my babies, I got EVERYTHING I wanted in my divorce and got my children (Twins) WITHOUT stepping foot in a courtroom. I KNOW Lisa spent LONG LATE NIGHT HOURS working on my case and I appreciate ALL she put it in. I can't continue this review without acknowledging the Senior paralegal who was with me every step from beginning to end (every phone call or email) to answer my questions and to help through this painful process JULIE FITZGERALD!!!! THANK YOU for being patient with me at times, getting everything to Lisa QUICKLY, and for taking the time to make sure we got what was best for my children. I can't truly thank you all enough for all you did for us. Yall will always hold a special place in my heart for all of this. Lisa and her team were worth every penny spent #bestattorney #FIERCEinthefight #moranlawfirm -Elizabeth C

The Best!
I hired Lisa Moran to represent me in my child support modification case and she was phenomenal! Lisa and her exemplary team worked hard to understand my case and ease my anxiety regarding the process. They prepared me for what to expect and never left me alone, while handling all communication with the other party. Lisa's experience, professionalism, and confidence were reassuring and key to procuring the outcome that is in the best interest of my children. I recommend Moran Law Firm to anyone who wants a strong and successful attorney on their side. Thank you Lisa and Team for your care and dedication - you are the best!

Great Attorneys and Great People!
I retained Lisa Moran for a child custody dispute and I could not possibly be any more impressed with her and her teams level of knowledge, professionalism and genuine care they all took with my case. Lisa, Promise, Julie, Sky, Nina and the rest of the team provided me with with a great deal of hope and ultimately, results that no other attorney had provided in the past. I absolutely recommend Lisa and her great team!

Intelligent, fierce and confident!
My name is Brittany Davis, I’m 23 years old, I’m a single mother of 3 and I work for a church children’s ministry I needed my custody agreement modified for my 2 year old daughter. Lisa Moran and her staff were incredible and on point and an absolute blessing to me and my family and were able to quickly get us the safety and peace we needed. They are always very reassuring and answered any questions I had and made me feel confident and at ease. Thanks to Moran Law firm we are now able to move forward with our new life in peace and feel safe again! If you are in need of a Family Lawyer this is definitely the place to go, I wouldn’t want any other firm to work on my case other than the Moran Law Firm! They are absolutely the BEST! Words can not describe how thankful I am for them.

Best Attorney in Texas!
My name is Stacey Simmons, and as many know grandparent rights are super difficult to obtain in Texas, and Lisa Moran did that just for me. She got me access to my grandkids and more. Lisa is hands down the BEST attorney in Texas, she is superb at what she does. Lisa was always on top of my case, very informant on every detail, and made the whole process easier for me. Lisa is absolutely remarkable at what she does. I could genuinely tell that Lisa was invested in me and my family. She was absolutely not in it for the money, she was in it for ME. Also, she has a team that is highly experienced in family law, and they were always more than willing to help me through the process. I recommend her to anyone! I will use her for the rest of my life. Lisa and team went above and beyond for me I can never thank her enough for what she has done for my family.

Faith Filled Team!
I was referred to Moran Law Firm by Kroscher & Kroscher in Longview, Tx. From the beginning of 2020 this firm and each employee within has worked with me hand in hand threw this long custody battle! I was blessed by the employees each listening & ultimately fighting for my rights as a parent. They encouraged me threw Covid19 cancellations & prayed with me & for me! I truly believe God put me in their path knowing I would need a faith filled team! I'm forever thankful for the team at Moran Law Form as well as the results produced threw our custody pursuit!

Moran Law is amazing!
I hired Lisa Moran and Sarina Hager to represent me and my 3 year old son in a child custody modification suit that was initiated by my son's mother. Over the 9 months it took to finish the case this firm exceeded my expectations! They were very attentive to my concerns and the best interests of my son. My custody went from a 50/50 custody order to me having primary custody in the final orders. I was able to reach my attorneys at pretty much any hour of the day, if needed. They were very generous with their time and helped to build a very strong case to protect my son going forward. They are certainly not the cheapest attorneys in turn but, you get what you pay for when it comes to that. Cheap is not good and good is not cheap! Even after the final orders of my case they have stayed in touch and helped with some of the aftermath as the dust has settled from a very hectic and trying year. If you are looking for a truly helpful and dedicated team then these are the people you want! God loving and God fearing attorneys!

Family First!
All things family is at the heart of the work being done by the Moran Law Firm. My in-laws had been married 58 years when they told me that they had never written wills. I immediately recommended Lisa and her team of professional staff. My in-laws expressed how kind and considerate the staff was during the process of making out their wills. They didn't feel rushed and every details was explined to thir liking. My father in law is not one that quickly takes to people, but he had nothing but great things to say about the respectful way that they were treated.

God brought us together
If you look on one of Lisa's cards, you will find "In God we Trust". That is how our journey together started. She was in Smith County and my case was in another county 2 hours away. She didn't want to take my case at first, but I showed her, her own card and insisted that she be my attorney. After all one of my very spiritual and close friends had sent me to her. Trust is something that you earn, and she has earned mine forever. John 3:18 Let us not love with words or speech, But with actions and truth. This sums up Lisa. She works based on actions and truth. She is a very spiritual and Godly person. She walked by my side even when, in the beginning, she didn't want to. I can honestly say that it also was not about money as so many other attorneys base their case load on. Hers was faith based. I will forever be grateful to Lisa and to God for sending me to her.
