About Lisa

Learn Lisa’s areas of practice.

I take pride in helping all of my clients achieve fair, equitable and dignified results with all of their legal issues.  I work diligently with my clients to obtain out of the court settlements. However, in those high conflict matters where settlement is simply not possible or in the client’s best interest, I take strong, thorough and aggressive approaches in all phases of litigation.  I understand how difficult and emotional family law cases can be. Consequently, I'm committed to working closely with all of my clients to ensure that I assertively, but compassionately, represents my client’s best interest during what is usually a very difficult time.

Excellent divorce attorney
I was absolutely pleased with the professional, thorough and personalized service Lisa and her staff provided throughout my entire divorce process. She was always readily available and responsive to my questions, provided focused and sound advice, and all of her suggestions ended up being right on target. I ended up with essentially what I had sought originally at the beginning of the process. I would unhesitatingly recommend Lisa to anyone forced to go through a similar ordeal.

Attorney Review
The process of a divorce and custody proceedings can take a financial and emotional toll. Lisa Stone and her staff are cognizant of the process and knowledgeable that it is a journey and not just a legal matter. They have always exhibited empathy and recognize the importance of this psychological event. Financially Lisa Stone has always been honest about the economic aspects of all legal decisions. I have never felt over the past 10 years that she has ever been more interested in her financial benefit than her clients. She knows which legal matters can be won and which will probably be lost and therefore should not be pursued. Her firm is not interested in continual conflict which is not economically helpful or beneficial for co-parenting. Every great attorney is supported by a talented staff. Terrie Spangler, paralegal, has worked for Lisa for at least 10 years. Terrie consistently creates sophisticated letters and documents. She has always been willing to revise and review as needed with Lisa's oversight. It is symbolic for a business to have such long term talented staff. In closing Lisa Stone has been a tremendous professional. It is inconceivable that there is a more talented Family Law Attorney in Phoenix. My reasoning is based on her knowledge of the law, capacity to minimize legal costs when able and the expertise to recognized the psychological aspects of the process.

She's the BEST!
I can not say enough Great things about Lisa and what she did for me & my son. When looking for a lawyer you are at a very low place. You want someone to understand your feelings, your fears, your concerns, your situation and well, you. Lisa was that for me! She helped me modify my custody and years later helped me collect on unpaid medical & child support. If it wasn't for Lisa I wouldn't have been able to be the mother that I am and my son wouldn't be the person is has become today!

Compassionate Representation
I contracted with Lisa to represent me in my divorce proceedings. I found Lisa and her staff to be very compassionate to my situation and gave me valuable advice along the way regarding my children and the parenting agreement. Her and her team are very prompt with their responses. I was very satisfied with every aspect of the process.

Lisa Stone
Retaining Lisa for my divorce was the smartest move I made. Lisa was very patient, took her time with me (I never felt rushed like she needed to finish up our meeting to move onto the next). She was detailed, organized and made the difficult process smooth and seamless. Even when I was being stubborn, she helped me not to get caught up in the little things to contain her fees. She was there for me whenever I needed her. I refer Lisa to everyone as she is the most professional, amazing attorney and person.

A true advocate for Families
In the maze that is family law Lisa has a profound way of explaining complicated law in a way the average person can understand. I have been lost many times and unaware of how to handle my personal situation, and Lisa eased my fears and showed me a way to handle my issues specifically. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a competent attorney

Professional, Knowledgeable Attorney
Lisa Stone is an experienced attorney who displayed her skill at every stage of my case. She was referred to me by an attorney friend of mine. From day one, she gave excellent strategic advice and was able to anticipate how the case would unfold. My case was exceptionally complex and went on to require over five appearances in a courtroom. Lisa is an outstanding attorney in general, but in a trial setting, she is uniquely effective. After the trials were complete, my ex husband's family even shared that they felt his representation was outmatched. Beyond typical legal advice, Lisa's positive attitude and the time she took to prepare me for my ordeal were invaluable. Additionally, her staff was professional, responsive, and pleasant to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone seeking a family attorney.

Cream of the Crop
Lisa has been very helpful in regards to my family Court case and helping me secure 50/50 custody of my two children. Lisa always keeps me updated and her staff is on the ball. I have unfortunately had a rough road battling my ex whom never agrees on anything. She, the ex, has brought me back to court several times. Lisa allows me to mitigate costs by keeping me informed and allowing me to file parts of my case that she then reviews. Lisa can't retire until my children are 18!! So 14 years to go :)
