Quality attorney
Lisa is an All-Star attorney she will fight. Tooth and nail for the best outcome in your case she stands by her work she fights hard for those that everybody else gives up on she makes you feel as though you have dignity and respect again she supports the lgbtq+ community and has her clients best interest at heart she tells you like it is and don't beat around the bush she goes above and beyond, defending her clients innocence or rights. I appreciate Lisa's hard work and diligent attitude and would recommend her to anybody whether it be civil rights or criminal defense she's good at what she does she tells it like it is and if you're innocent she'll fight for that and she knows what she's doing....

I can't thank Lisa Rasmussen, Jim Hoffman and all the staff at the this law office enough . They took on my case , kept me informed , treated my case as if it was as important to them as it was to me .They won the case and had it dismissed .. I am forever thankful..

Amazing Lawyer
Just amazing is the only way I describe Lisa Rasmussen. How she ever was able to get my case dismissed is beyond me. All I can say is Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you.

Human, Kind, Passionate Defender
“In the recent past I found myself in need of legal services, fortunately I was introduced to Lisa Rasmussen whom I must say is very knowledgeable, very professional and very effective. Not only did she provide the best defense for me but also very humane, kind and compassionate treatment to me and most importantly to my wife and children who visited on occasion from abroad. She and her team really went out of her way to help in any way possible even in matters that had to do more with emotional support to my family and advice on how to get around the Las Vegas area in an affordable way during their visits. I am and always will be so grateful to Lisa, that every thanksgiving I never forget to write her a thank you note.” Daniel S.

Great attorney,
I hired Lisa Rasmussen to represent me in a criminal case where I could of been given a third strike or sentenced to many years in prison. She professionally managed my case, kept it low profile, and got me negotiated me probation. I will be in her debt. She was attentive, caring, thorough, and on top of all legal issues involved.
