About me

I have been a partner in the law firm of Greenman, Lacy, Klein, O'Harra & Heffron since 1978, and have practiced family law for 38 years.  In 2000 I hired my neice Katie Anderson as an associate attorney.  Then in 2005 and 2006 I hired two more associate attorneys, which were my son, Jeffrey Bledsoe Lacy, and my daughter, Jennifer Bledsoe Lacy.   Currently, I am the supervising attorney for these three outstanding associates.  This allows me to better represent complicated and large cases more efficiently for my clients, as my associates provide a genuine Family Law Firm with a variety of experiences among our Family Law Attorneys for those clients who seek representation.
