Lisa Frigo-Outstanding Performance
Ms. Frigo recently represented me in a dissolution of marriage involving a child case. Ms. Frigo was extremely attentive; even working on the weekends to address my case. Ms. Frigo as extremely responsive and I never waiting for more than a couple of hours before hearing from her when I had a question or concern. Ms. Frigo represented me extremely well in my permanency orders hearing and assisted me through the entire process. My gratitude to her and to Morgan Thompson is endless and I was truly satisfied with the service that I was provided with her and her firm. She exceeded my expectations.

Domestic Violence Accusation
Lisa is an excellent attorney! She was very responsive and reassuring in one of the worst moments of my life. Despite the false accusations of domestic violence Lisa was there throughout the whole process keeping me focused and hopeful. The charges were dropped with Lisa's assistance and I am forever grateful! I'd reccomend Lisa/The Burnham Law Firm for any criminal matter!

Lisa Frigo is incredible
Since the beginning of my parenting time case Lisa has been attentive, thorough, patient, and considerate of how difficult the situation was. There were several frustrating nuances to this case that Lisa identified with which helped me set realistic expectations. I could ask her anything and never felt ignored or pandered to. It's one thing to feel like someone just represents you, and it's something very different when that person truly supports you. Lisa's efforts got me 50/50 parenting time with my son with an ideal parenting schedule and 50/50 decision-making. This was absolute best case scenario and I am so grateful. She has given me hope that Dad's absolutely do have rights, and I can not imagine where my son and I would be without her. Thank you forever for everything you have done for us!

Wonderful results with an emotional case
I had the pleasure of having Lisa Frigo represent me in a child parenting case. I was at once impressed with her professional and caring demeanor. She made me feel like I had her undivided attention and kept me updated with any changes or progress with my case. She handled a very emotional and personal matter with care and the outcome was better than anything I had imagined. I am now afforded the parenting time and decision making in my sons life that I did not think was possible.

Doesn't believe in fighting for her clients rights to be involved in child's life
As soon as I fired her, I Found an attorney that believed in me and fought for my case of parental alienation against my ex. No thanks to Lisa frigo but another law practice, I now have a great relationship with my children and have joint decision making and have a normal relationship with my kids without mother's interference. Fight for what you believe in, and if an attorney says no I can't do this for you, find another attorney. I wasn't asking for anything unreasonable other than to be in my children's lives and stop mom from interfering.

Ripped off my sister
Warning. Do not use this lawyer. She does not seem like she knows what she is doing. My sister used her for her family law case. In which she was a winner going in. She exhausted the entire retainer with emails, ignored all of my sister request and was not looking out for best interests of my sister and then walked away from her case a week before new trial with no warning, after she continued it out for her own personal issues. This lawyer seems un educated and incapable. My sister had a slam dunk family law case with a protection order. Once she hired Lisa her abuser continued to harass her and this lawyer did nothing but waste my sisters money then walk away when she needed her the most. She can't handle women who are abused or being abused. I will be warning all of my friends family and huge network of individuals stay away from this lawyer and firm. They did one over on my sister and now she left her in a lurch after she gave her all this money. This is one of those shady lawyers you stay away from warning. I will be telling my huge network. Save your money, hire someone else.
