I hired Lisa to help with a family custody case. She was extremely professional, helpful, and available at all times. She and her team explained clearly what would happen at each turning point, and every step of the plan was executed just as she said it would be. The team is very organized and very helpful in sorting and organizing your documentation. They are also very responsive and answered my emails within a few hours at most every time I sent a note over. End result: exactly what we had hoped for in terms of the custody arrangement. I would highly recommend hiring Lisa as your attorney and will continue to recommend her to coworkers and friends for their particular cases.

I hired Lisa to handle my recent divorce which turned out to be very lengthy. She and her staff were always professional, positive and assisted with all issues in a timely fashion. I highly recommend Lisa and her staff.

Lisa represented me better than I could have ever imagined. The cards where stacked against me because of the falsely exaggerated claims my ex-wife making. Lisa was able to clear the air and poke holes in my ex-wife's claims. Lisa worked with my fiscal situation and I tried to do whatever I could to make her job easier. Lisa helped with convincing me that I did have the right to more time with my children and when I was about to give up she was there to convenience me otherwise. In the end, I received more time with my kids which is all that really mattered to me.

First let me be clear: I wrote a heartfelt review for Lisa when I was sent the email request and then received a reminder two weeks later to write a review. After contacting AVVO only to find that my initial review was never received (even though I completed a captcha and clicked "submit") I am now doing my best to re-create that review...SO it should be clear that if I am taking the time and energy to compose this review again, it is because I firmly stand for that which I am putting forth with these words.
Lisa Sanders Richardson KNOWS what she is doing, and has a well developed blend of practicing the law while still maintaining a personable understanding of her clients.
My case was a modification for a custody agreement and her guidance during that turbulent time as well as her advice regarding what I could do to exercise my rights of visitation with my twins was spot on and wrought a favorable outcome once a new agreement was reached in mediation.
All that was nice, but this was the part that was invaluable to me: I was the stay at home for my twins, and was re-entering the workforce while the situation arose that necessitated me to hire Lisa in order to avoid being alienated from my children. Lisa understood my situation and helped keep the costs down. Granted, this was not a pro-bono situation, and it required me to pay her and her team for their time and efforts, yet they knew my situation and helped me in terms of keeping billable hours within limits that I could afford.
Look, I had researched her after being referred to her, and went in understanding that it is best to follow her advice. Once she heard what I was seeking, I followed her guidance in legal matters, and the opposition found it best to reach a new agreement through mediation. In the end, I got what I wanted; more time with my children without interference. In fact, I just had them for a full week during Spring break this year, and I know that was possible because of Lisa's talents and knowledge, for interpersonal awareness and the law, respectively.
If you need legal counsel for family matters, I recommend hiring her. Without a doubt, I know my life is better for having done so.

When I was getting divorced, I heard a lot of horror stories about how much it was going to cost and how difficult it would be to amicably settle our assets and get me the time I deserved with my children because I am the father and work a lot out of town. Lisa is highly sought after yet she worked me in, quickly grasped the facts of the case, quickly drafted a framework for us, and efficiently supported my negotiations with my ex and the filing of the documents to the point where I actually got some of my retainer refunded. I also got the joint custody I desired. When I had some disagreements with my ex after the decree was signed Lisa and her staff responded quickly to my questions and helped me frame the situation correctly to avoid major conflict. Lisa is reasonable, professional, pragmatic, and knows her clients well and the details of their cases even months later.

Divorce is awful, plain and simple. I spent hours looking for a lawyer that I thought could help me get everything I wanted after I found out my husband was unfaithful and extremely unstable. I called around to multiple firms and explained my case (leaving state with my child) and every law office recommended Lisa Richardson. She stays extremely busy, which shows me two things: she comes highly demanded and she maintains a high record of integrity. I begged Sheri, her front office assistant, to get us in and the rest was history. I had many crazy situations where I needed their help and the office helped me at the drop of a hat, ALWAYS. Jennifer, Lisa's paralegal, really is a God send. Divorce sucks, and she was so kind and patient with every question I had. My ex was very unstable, and they assisted me in getting the protection My child and I needed from him, during this process. They let me cry and feel this situation with zero judgements. Lisa was very honest and forthright about what I wanted that was realistic vs. unrealistic. She will shoot you straight, and sometimes it was hard to hear. No one thinks clearly through divorce, that's why you have her to make quality choices for you. She was affordable and honest, I would recommend her to anyone. If you can't resolve your marriage, the ladies at Lisa's office will be a great support to you, and give you strength you never knew you had.

I don't believe anyone plans on a divorce. It is scary and the uncertainty of the future is real. I have never been through a divorce (I was married for almost 25 years). Lisa and her team held my hand through this process. Lisa never gets flustered, she is straight forward in her communication style and will give you a dose of reality (we all need it in this situation). She kept my finances at the forefront to insure that I wasn't spending the monies I had set aside unnecessarily. We all have unique circumstances; I had some very unusual circumstances and other specialists were required to finalize my divorce. Lisa found the best individuals with correct credentials to assist me through my situation. For this and many other reasons, I would highly recommend her if you are ever in a situation that requires someone with her expertise. I will always be grateful to Lisa and her team.

I wanted an amicable divorce, unfortunately my spouse wanted a fight. He hired a litigation attorney while I sought Lisa Richardson's expertise in mediation. I was impressed at her efficient navigation through the barrage of legal attacks the other party made. It all came down to a one-day mediation anyway. She saved me a lot of cash (~$15 K I'd guess) and a lot of aggrivation compared to engaging in the tit-for-tat legal battles. She kept me focused on the real goal and deftly brought me to it. I admire her high ethical standards and dedication to solutions for her clients. I highly recommend her services!!

Lisa guided me through a complex divorce proceeding and kept me focused on protecting my interests. I was pleased with the outcome. I am grateful for her diligent services and will employ her again when needed. Thank you, Lisa.

Lisa was amazing through this entire process. I first consulted her a year before I filed just to understand what was needed. She gave me a lot of information about each step of a divorce. Lisa then advised me that I needed to be ready and sure as no divorce is easy. There is no judgement on her part just honest and sound advice. She asked great questions to understand what I wanted and her primary concern was the children and making sure they were taken care of by both of us. This is a hard process and she made it as easy as it can be. I never felt I was a bother. The entire staff was amazing. Every email and phone call was answered promptly and sometimes within minutes. The office is welcoming and comfortable. This billing was well documented and easy to track. Towards the end she kept on top of the other attorney and made sure this got closed out. I truly recommend Lisa for any family needs. She is worth the investment and you will feel secure in knowing your next steps.
