I would not recommend this law firm. I went in for a one hour consultation with one of her associates. Needless to say it was a little over a hour and charged $600 for basically little advice that I already knew by common sense and research. I spent the entire time talking and explaining my case and she never gave any feed back or even explained things to me on how to help or what are the next steps. Just quote a price for her service. Im very disappointed! It was a waste of money.

I hired this firm after really thinking I could handle the entire divorce process on my own. After walking away from the staff attorney's offices several times with no progress (because they simply do not have the time to move your case without massive delays and inadequate staff), I decided to give in and ask for help. There are so many different family attorneys in the San Antonio area that it seemed very difficult to find the right attorney that would not take advantage of me and over charge for their work. The office of Lisa Vance felt like family to me after about 2 seconds on the initial call with them. They explained the entire process and charges up front. Everything went just as they said it would and my divorce was finalized in less than two weeks. We were able to handle everything via phone and email and I only had to actually appear the day of the finalization. This office is full of genuinely nice, compassionate, professional individuals that know how to get things done at a minimal cost and o you. If you want to resolve your case so you can move on with your life, I encourage you to contact the office of Lisa Vance and ask for Durime Fahim! Her assistant Jessica Goodman will get your documents ready and explain everything very thoroughly. Attorney Fahim is kind and extremely experienced. She will get your case finalized and you will be like I was...speechless and in awe (slightly mad at yourself for wasting so much time and not calling the office of Lisa Vance much sooner)!!!!
I highly recommend this firm, you will gain your independence back and honestly feel like you are among family the entire time. Thank you Durime!!!!

After almost ten years of hiding from an abusive husband, Lisa gave me the confidence to get a divorce. There was something about her voice, something about the way she looked at me as I relived my trauma, something about the compassion and sincerity in her demeanor, that gave me the courage to stand up and shake off my past and forge a new future. She was fair, honest, and realistic through out the process and turned a year long nightmarish divorce into an annulment in the span of 2 months. Of all the people I am forever indebted to, Lisa is probably among the ones I could never repay. Thank you so much for all you have done for me Mrs. Vance. I will forever be grateful.

I had a half-hour consultation with Lisa regarding a complicated issue involving divorce law and in-vitro fertilization. She was up-to-speed on every aspect of this quickly changing field and was honest about what the unknowns were. It was clear that it wasn't about money or bringing in a new client, it was all about helping me find the solutions to my problem. I would recommend her to anyone.

I read the negative review posted by the stepmother of the child dying of cancer. First as the father who lost a child my heart goes out to the parents having to endure this unbelievable pain. Having said that I would like to give my experience in dealing with Lisa A. Vance and her firm. My daughter had two children which my ex-wife and I had been very active in their entire lives since birth. I won't go into all of the details except to say my son in-law and his new wife decided to cut both my ex-wife out of our Granddaughters lives and became extremely vindictive. We hired Lisa and found an immediate bond with her as it was obvious that she truly cared and money certainly was not the focus of her involvement. Bottom line is that because of Lisa and her team we now have custody of our eldest Grandbaby and liberal visitation with the youngest. My family cannot thank Lisa enough for what she did for our family.

I had an opportunity to meet with Mrs. Vance recently and i have to say i was blown away by her level of expertise and her compassion. She is truly a public servant that wants you to succeed on your case and will do what is in her power to assist in that. I am grateful to have met that angel on my journey of child custody.
My battle has taken me to two other lawyers that were less costly but cost me know ore in time, effort and energy. For that reason, i have exhausted many resources and everything seemed so fuzzy and unknown (super scary). Lisa has a unique ability to consult you into understanding (if that makes sense). She didn't make me feel ignorant (like my last lawyer) and made me feel like my story mattered (unlike my first lawyer).

To everyone that is on my case, the way y'all handled all the ups and downs, all the hardships and everything, using your expertise and keeping my best interest in your heart, has meant so much to me. That's why when you say we're a team, the word team represents together everyone achieves more. Thank you to Lisa, Mary Lou, Brooke, Andrea, Durime, Crystal, and Dylan.

I have known Lisa for at least 6 years. I had a very contested divorce and although it's over now Lisa and I had to go through very specific details of my 26 year marriage because the issues were important to my case. You don't realize how important your lawyer will be to you and your family until you are faced with really tough issues like I was. Lisa's integrity is intact and knowing what I know now about our legal system and how we can still abide by legal rules but have to deal with a dishonest spouse or a dishonest attorney on the other side I appreciate that my attorney Lisa Vance was there to represent me when I wasn't able to stand up for my rights as a wife and mother. The legal system is what it is and Lisa has the experience as a litigator to protect your rights. She is prepared when she goes to court on your behalf and focuses on making sure that you and your children are protected. I am glad that a friend referred to her to me and that I stuck with her although there were tough times and very difficult issues to deal with. As a human being, you can tell what Lisa's passions are by stepping into her office. Her staff is unique and her love and passion for animals is as great as it is for human beings. She cares and it's evident in the way she manages her office and the people who work for her. She is a wonderful human being and I would recommend her services to anyone who is in need of a lawyer who will listen to what the issues are and tries to first resolve amicably and then fight for your rights. The law is specific and Lisa has the experience to represent anyone going through a divorce.
Sincerely SJA a client

I am currently going through a divorce after 26 years of marriage. Lisa and her team has made this experience as easy and pleasant as possible. They contact me almost daily and answer all my questions. They treat me like a human with feelings and not just a client. I can't imagine going through this without them. I HIGHLY recommend Lisa and her team.

My husband and I hired Ms. Vance's law firm for a child support case. After retaining her for 5,000.00 which she quickly used up in 2 months we were no further from having a settlement. However, we did start having to pay the maximum in child support under Texas Law. Every email small or not was met with an even larger bill! I sent an email less than a page long and it was met with a bill to read it and communicate it within her office staff of over 500.00 dollars. While her expertise in law may be extensive so is her billing!!! I do not see that we gained anything from our 5,000.00, it is worse 5,000.00 I've ever spent!!! I do not recommend anyone hiring the Vance firm unless your pockets are extremely deep and you like paying for nothing!!!!
