2 words: Integrity, Compassionate!
If you would like a compassionate, intelligent, knowledgeable lawyer with integrity, then Lisa is your definitely who you should be calling! I had a nasty divorce that went on 8 yrs AFTER the final disposition. I had another attorney that was " representing me" who let this thing keep dragging on. I ended up firing them and hired Lisa and the BS STOPPED and I was finally done with the back and forth to court for frivolous stuff... My ex-husband and his attorneys would constantly haul my butt to court for nonsensical reasons, and my attorneys would keep pushing the matters out, but when Lisa and her team got on board not only did she put a stop to the madness, she also let them know if they continued to do this and use delay tactics, they would be responsible for my attorney fees as well. It's amazing how quickly this whole saga ended and The kids and I are finally able to live freely. Thank you Lisa and your team for a job VERY WELL DONE! You helped end 8 yrs of hell and our family will forever be grateful! May you continue to be blessed as you continue to be a blessing to others ;0))

Thank you Lisa
I hired Lisa to handle my divorce. Throughout the process she helped me to remain calm and focused in what was an emotional and at times, volatile situation. Lisa’s ability to cut through the minutiae and guide me through the entire process greatly relieved my stress and took a great weight off my shoulders. Her attention to all details was, in my opinion, flawless. Lisa’s sense of humor, calm demeanor and explanations saw me through one of the most challenging episodes of my life. I would recommend her to any individual, male or female, who is in need of a family practice attorney.

my divorce/custody case
From moment one, Ms Risner conducted her attorney/knowledge of family law savy, genuine passion for that what Is right, not simply profitable & finally her daily professional determination to be the best attorney possible...

I wish that she had been on my side....
Although Ms. Risner represented my ex-husband, she did her best for him, and I acknowledge that. Yes, I would have preferred that she had been able to discourage him from lying to the court in trial and subsequent filings, but I admire that she drew a line where she said she would no longer help him cheat a fellow single-mom. (OK, I'm imagining that scenario, and hoping that she actually chose ethics over buck$ as the reason why she will no longer be his attorney, even if she told him otherwise.) When she could, despite my ex's avarice and acrimony, she did a great job upholding the law. She was well-prepared and presented her line of questioning and arguments soundly.
