4.5 stars 15 totalReview Lisa Vance
Posted by Don
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!!!!

I would like to say that Lisa and her law firm did not only help my daughter with her child custody case. But made us feel at home, even though we were 200 miles away from where we live. The compassion and dedication that she and her firm showed for our case, made us feel like we were the only clients she had. If I have any legal needs in San Antonio, I would never hesitate to use her firm again.
Thank you for everything you did for my daughter and my family.

Lisa is empathetic, wise and well respected by peers.
Our family was dealing with serious false allegations and a difficult ex continuously filing erroneous motions.
She helped us get the best possible result. She is the second attorney we hired in San Antonio and is leaps and bounds better than the opposing attorney (who has a good reputation) and our past attorney. Custody issues are so hard to go through. We wish we would have chosen Lisa to begin with. She was less expensive than our previous attorney. She will keep you out of the courtroom - if at all possible. She knows the right therapists, evaluators and mediators in the area.
Lisa has a team that will keep you up to date and answer all your questions. You will get a speedy response from her and her team. Lisa called us directly within 1 day of our initial call to her office for a lengthy consult. Attorneys just don't do this. She cares. I cannot say that enough.
I hope my review can help someone else find Lisa, an attorney with compassion - but she is a shark too!!
Visiting her office is more like visiting your favorite aunt. She has a beautiful garden that surrounds an old Victorian home and cats and pups always around. She loves animals too. Who could ask for more?
We will always keep her number in our phones. We wouldn't call anyone else.

She “took the bull by the horns”
Mrs. Vance saw me through a horrible custody case. It was one of the toughest times of my life and it was ripping my happy little world apart. Ms. Vance taught me how to do the right thing “take the high road” as she called it, even when that was the last thing I wanted to do. She was an absolute powerhouse in the courtroom. She is also very creative, and offered me several different options on how to handle my case. She even showed me how to do some of the paralegals work so I would save money on the legal fees. I am so very thankful that I had Lisa Vance as my lawyer. I highly recommend Ms. Lisa Vance to anyone who needs a lawyer.

I want to express my deepest gratitude to Lisa Vance and her office for their wonderful work, their care and understanding – it is priceless. I felt understood, helped, I felt as if Lisa stood in front of me, supported and protected me. My case was complicated by the fact, that my ex is a lawyer himself, but I realized very soon, that it is impossible to intimidate Lisa. She is very knowledgeable, fearless, operates efficiently and will do everything possible to protect her client. Thank you all, thank you!
