Could not ask for a better representation and experience
I feel the need to share my great experience with Lisa Murray. I had been facing a very difficult time with a child support and custody case. After two years of trying on my own, I knew I needed to find representation. I decided to contact Lisa which turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made. From the moment I began I knew I was with the right representation. My first contact was with Kelly who was wonderful and extremely helpful with her assistance. When I sat down with Lisa, she really listened and was extremely thorough with gathering all the information from my end. Lisa explained everything to me about what the process was and helped me understand many things I was unaware of. I also liked that she was very honest and forthcoming with me. She was very confident but did not sit there and make all these promises. Her goal was to be there for me every step of the way and make sure I knew every detail and step. I am very thankful to Lisa and Kelly and would recommend her service to anyone. Anyone going through family court knows how much it sucks but I had the right person to get me through it. As a disclaimer, this is an unsolicited review as I feel compelled to give credit where credit is do. I wish anyone going through a difficult situation the best of luck. Thank you for taking the time to read my review.
