I initially hired Lisa to represent me in my divorce. After our first meeting I knew that she was absolutely who I needed to hire. From the start it was clear that she took her job very seriously and representing her clients to the best of her ability was first and foremost. Neither of us had any idea of the wild ride we were embarking on and I believe my case is one that will always stand out in her mind. Her professionalism and presence in the courtroom is impressive. Couple that with her knowledge of the law and her compassion and kindness and she's quite a force to be reckoned with. I was always so thankful that she was on my side in that courtroom. I have hired Lisa for subsequent issues after my divorce case because I know I can count on her to fight hard for me while maintaining her integrity and mine. I would absolutely hire her again.
Elizabeth Bonanno, Family Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Lisa is quick-witted, smart, poised and compassionate. She truly gives it her all and deeply cares about her work and her clients. Lisa can be trusted to put real thought into each of her cases - even the thorniest of issues - to find whatever creative solution there may be. I would want Lisa on my side.
Amber McClain, Child custody Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I met Lisa several years ago on the other side of a fairly high conflict matter that included complex tribal law and family law issues. Lisa is smart and creative when it comes to conflict resolution/strategy. She is trustworthy and respectful in her approach. I found her to be a fair opponent and I call her often for advice. I would hire Lisa in a heartbeat to handle any family law case and I have referred some of my closest friends to her for legal services.
