I am thrilled to offer my highest recommendation for Ms. Lisa McCall, the family attorney who represented me in a high-conflict custody and divorce battle. Ms McCall took over my case two and a half years after I escaped from an emotionally and verbally abusive marriage. The attorney who initially represented me was forced to take an emergency medical-leave. The transition was seamless and Ms. McCall breathed fresh air into my case which renewed my much-needed energy and conviction. Her genius-level knowledge of the law is unprecedented and her ability to articulate it in an unthreatening manner will blow you away! The deserved respect and acknowledgement she receives from the many professionals in law enforcement and in the legal industry is widespread and common. It never failed that when I discussed who my attorney was or if I was with her at the courthouse, I was flooded with reassurances (even admiration -
as if I had something to do with her abilities!?) of sincere, high praise for Ms. McCall. These words of confidence came from bailiffs, other attorneys (even those who served as opposing counsel in a few of her active cases), several mental health professionals, and even two judges (not those hearing my own case).
But I’m writing this based on my own personal experience and interaction with Ms. McCall and her legal staff, not on hearsay or others’ recommendations. Her tireless work ethic and thoroughness gave me the peace I needed to live my everyday life, to tend to my responsibilities as a newly single mother and career professional, and put the details and burden of my case in her hands without the constant nagging worry someone has during this tumultuous experience of divorce and custody litigation. Unlike my first attorney, I never needed to ask myself, “Am I doing enough? Is my attorney working for me? Does she have my children’s best interest in mind? Is she fighting for me? Does she believe in me?” I knew without a doubt the answer was, “Yes, of course, Jami.”
Strategic delays, human-calendar-errors, lack-of-preparation, and pure laziness BY OPPOSING COUNSEL, as well as judge-reassignments resulted in several postponed and continued hearings/trials. There was not one thing Ms. McCall could have done to avoid these, and with each disappointment, she became even more steadfast in reaching a just outcome.
Ms. McCall and her legal staff are diamonds in a field of dirt, coal, and grime and I am so incredibly blessed for her representation. She is thoughtful, caring, realistic, and the most intelligent and knowledgeable attorney you will find out there. She has the wisdom of a seasoned veteran approaching retirement and the attitude and energy of a newly-hired associate fresh out of law school. I will continue to sing her praises and recommend Ms. McCall and her firm to anyone seeking family law representation.
I declare under penalty and perjury that the above is true and correct.

I had been through a divorce before and honestly, my general opinion of family law lawyers was not positive... Lisa is an exception.
Having moved to Ca from out of state, with no kids and only 3 years of what I thought was a happy marriage, my divorce came as a total shock. When I realized my wife already had an attorney and was setting me up, I needed to hire an attorney. So I searched out and hired the best one I could find. Lisa worked for the firm I hired and handled my entire case... my X seemed to have a goal that consisted of trying to run me out of money which, made it a needlessly long and difficult case.
Lisa always seemed genuinely concerned with how to keep the cost down as much as possible, and always seemed to look out for my best interests. My case went on for over a year but was eventually, successfully mediated.
In the begining I had tried on my own to settle out of court, but with Lisa's help, a settlement better than what I had originally wanted was reached.
I am happy with and thankful for her representation , she changed my opinion of lawyers and I would recommend her to anyone facing a divorce.

I hired Lisa after my ex wife decided to take me back to court for additional alimony as the end of child support was near. My previous lawyer (as she noted through substantial research) missed several items that should have been addressed in the original proceedings. She was well prepared for trial and did very well with communicating to the judge and court room staff, they all genuinely liked her. Her preparedness and cross examination was excellent and has left my case in a positive disposition should there be further legal action. I will also mention that her legal staff is top notch, responsive and professional.

Divorcing from a woman with lawyers up and down her family tree was daunting and yet I’m not about to back down when I know I’m in the “right”.
I met with LISA from a referral from my sister. We talked on the phone and in her office multiple times. She helped me before I was even a client and made it very clear. There are several parties in the divorce and she and her firm was one of them. So was my ex legal team and then kids and, in essence, the elephant in the room was that if we didn’t figure it all out even if it was slightly leaning unfairly on either side it was better than dragging it on.
Lisa is not that greedy lawyer that wants you to win at all costs. Which ends up costing SO MUCH MORE. She is a breath of fresh are and a good friend.
I left a fight on good terms, with my head high and have asked for her advise many more times thereafter mostly to my contentment she has offered I not use her services and start a fight.
She protects her clients, very smart, young but experienced, and I think proves a rare breed of legal that isn’t all about the money.

I was married for 5 years and I filed for divorce in 2014. I thought it would be a smooth divorce process because we were married for only 5 years and we had no assets together that we had to fight over. That was not the case. The judge that presided over my case was new to family law and as result of that the judge exceeded her authority in several instances. She ordered retroactive spousal support to an absurd day with NO end date. My x wife's attorney asked the judge "can you do that?". They even could not believe what she ordered. I was devastated. I was referred to Lisa Rose McCall to appeal the courts ruling. Lisa was awesome!!! First of all and more importantly she is very competent. She responded to all my questions and concerns in a timely matter. She worked extremely hard on my case. I felt more at ease because I felt like I had someone on my corner that sympathized with what I was going through and was genuinely interested in helping me get out of the hole I was in. She was able to reverse the unfair courts ruling and settle with my x wife. I will always be very thankful to Lisa for what she did for me. Don't hesitate to give her a call if you find yourself in a hole like I was in. It will be the best call you will ever make.

Lisa McCall came highly recommended, and I was not disappointed. At our initial consultation I found her to be knowledgeable, thorough, compassionate and surprisingly generous with her time. That continued to be true throughout my divorce case, which was settled out of court in only six months, thanks to Lisa's work. I was kept informed every step of the way. Although extremely professional, Lisa treated me like a good friend. She works very hard and gets results. Lisa is passionate about Family Law, and is definitely on her way up. I can wholeheartedly recommend Lisa McCall.

Lisa professionally guided me through the challenging, emotional, and difficult process of building a temporary restraining order case, combined with divorce and custody cases. Lisa kept me clear and focused on the facts, and guided me to make realistic, proper decisions based on those facts. Lisa took the time and energy to make sure I was just as prepared as she was.
She built a case so strong and sound the end result was a proper and fair judgment that left both parties satisfied. She is a very fast thinker and was able to instantly and assertively stop several nonsensical requests during the process - saving everyone time and cost.
I felt like I was part of her legal team - full confidence in Lisa McCall. The ball kept rolling all the way to the finish line and never stood still.

After family court awarded a 5-year restraining order against my ex-husband, he felt compelled to appeal the decision in the appellate court, even though he had no real legal standing. Not wanting to take the chance on messing up my own response brief (in pro per), I met with Lisa McCall at her office and she was incredible.
She listened, provided insight, was extremely professional, asked the right questions, didn't talk over me, and her memory of the facts and how to respond legally and take action was amazing to watch. She had to peruse over volumes and volumes and volumes of legal pleadings and the trial transcripts in order to prepare. She communicates efficiently via email and calls, doesn't over bill, and really took my case on with vigor and the passion required to win and uphold the family court verdict. At the last minute she was required to go in and argue the case orally, and she was amazing. Even my divorce attorney decided to appear to watch her in action and was amazed. We won and the restraining order stood. I highly recommend retaining Lisa McCall, you will not regret your decision.
