Outstanding Legal Team
I've received outstanding legal advice and representation over the past year and I definitely recommend Attorney Lisa Thiessen and her paralegal Alyssa. Lisa and her team will look out for your best interests and provide solid legal services. They address your questions by explaining the processes until you feel comfortable moving on with the next step. They definitely have your best interests as their priority!

Highly recommend!
Ms. Lisa Thiessen is extremely professional, knowledgeable, straight forward, and personable. There was not enough time to hire her for my case, but I wish I had found her sooner! I was representing myself, up against a long practicing lawyer. The opposing sides lawyer was no match for Ms. Thiessen's valuable advice. She helped me tremendously. I cannot say enough great things about her. I highly recommend Ms. Thiessen!

Excellent
Hired Lisa for my custody case. She made me feel very comfortable and confident during our initial consult and I decided to hire her right away. Lisa and her assistants (Gabby especially) were always very helpful and professional. Very good in court and very helpful with explaining things for me. She fought for me and the children and we got the results we needed. She helped change our lives for the better and I will always go to her for my family law needs, I will always recommend her to others.

Great experience
I had a really great experience with Lisa and Gabriella. They were both very helpful with my case and helped me get the results I was looking for. Although my case was not looking to be the strongest case, Lisa never gave up on me and continued to exhaust all options possible. She also made sure I did not waste my time or money. Lisa is a very kind, smart, strong, caring lawyer. She knows what she's doing and does not go after your money!!! I definitely recommend her and would definitely reach out to her again if I ever need a family law lawyer in the future. Thank you Lisa!!!

True Warrior Attorney You Definitely Want On Your Side.
I hired Lisa 6 years ago and rehired her again. I cannot trust any other lawyer than Lisa because she knows exactly how to execute your case in the best and fair way possible. Her work beams justice. She has great advice, states true facts and will work hard to make sure you are taken care of. Lisa is definitely on your side. She is highly skilled in her work, 100% fair and true. I did not hesitated highering Lisa the second and third time. No one will fight for you like she will. I guarantee you.

Child Custody
Lisa is amazing. She helped me through a child custody case and divorce. She helped me stay at ease through a very stressful situation that I had to deal with. She was very clear on the process, she was very straight forward, and killed the case! I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else by my side through the whole process.

Pit Bull
Went from paying $450 a month in child support to nothing and get to claim the child on taxes. Got to have the Pit Bull in your corner when you are going to fight. And Lisa is a big a$$ PIt Bull.

A strong lawyer who will fight for you.
I've had the worse struggle with my divorce. When I hired Lisa, she was there to keep me focused, taking her time to make sure she got every detail in full to help finalize my divorce. Her thoughtfulness and knowledge is beyond comforting. Her presence alone helped me stay empowered when going to court which was by far the hardest day of my life. I wouldn't turn to anyone else. If you honestly want a lawyer who is strong and for you, she is definitely the one. She will fight for you.

Very Appreciative
I have had Lisa as an attorney for about 5 years now. With the addition of Fallon as her paralegal I have become greatly satisfied and confident that my case is running smoothly and organized. I am not eager to go to court and get things finished and finalized rather than worried and nervous. I would strongly recommend Lisa as she is blunt, honest, does not sugar coat things and I appreciate that she is ethical because I would never want an attorney who lies, cheats and builds a case upon those things.

As a single parent I know the struggle. Lisa Thiessen is the best attorney one can have.
I have gone through three attorneys and my child is three. One attorney who was literally a joke and I fired him after the first court date as he stood there like a statue and could care less for my child or my case the second attorney who was just there for his money he would do the paperwork but would show up late or postponed court dates to charge me extra as now he had more court dates on his books. The third attorney I hired was Lisa Thiessen. I’ve been to court with Lisa twice and every time she has been prepared and ready to prep me a week before and the morning of court. When I met Lisa Thiessen the first time I felt a personal connection as if she is one attorney who cared about me and my child. I have one of the most challenging child custody cases that anyone has heard of. As a single parent if there is one piece of advice I can give to anyone battling a child custody case it would be to hire Lisa. She has been my attorney for the past year and I could have not made a better choice. I am finally pleased with my choice as I know I have a powerful person who not only is knowledgeable but also very understanding. Her paralegal Alyssa is also pretty amazing, they are definitely a great team as a matter of fact everyone at Diane Drew Butler & Associates is very professional and kind.

What a blessing to have found the right attorney for me and my daughter.
Having one of the longest and most difficult child custody cases. I strongly believe that I found a wonderful attorney. Lisa helped me fight for what was the right thing for my young daughter. Lisa, the counselors, the mediator, and the judge were all on the same page and worked so hard for me. I didn't now I was going to do and had so many questions but I am a shy person and Lisa was very understanding and I really feel that was we worked together she was very understanding and supportive. I thank her and everyone at the law office that helped me and my daughter.

She is excellent in tackling difficult custody issues!
Lisa and her staff are very efficient and professional. Not only is she excellent in communicating with us as her clients, she has a good rapport with the mediators and the family law judges. Her ability to state the facts, negotiate, and when necessary argue what was needed for the benefit of the minor child was successful. It is apparent she loves what she does in helping families in difficult custody situations (as ours continues to be). I would highly recommend her.

Client
Lisa is a not only a great attorney to work with but a great person. Lisa understands the intricacies of divorce and child custody and has helped me through the millions of questions that have come up over time. I always get a quick response from her or her office. Lisa helped me through a difficult divorce and helped to settle custody arrangements with my children and their Mother. I trust Lisa's advice and have referred coworkers to her office.

Lisa Thiessen
I was and am still represented by Lisa Thiessen and the entire Dianne Drew Butler Family Law Firm. I am very fortunate that I have had their representation. On several occasions which took place in the family court system over the course of several years, I have had positive results concerning my divorce. Child custody, visitation, spousal support, and separation of property were all issues that were handled respectfully and with fair results. I do endorse Lisa Thiessen individually for her ability to adjust during court proceedings and protect my rights as a responsible parent and former spouse. I have recommended Lisa Thiessen to anyone who I meet in this county who discuses their family law matters with me. I simply say, Lisa Thiessen knows the laws and will do everything possible to protect your interests. Lisa Thiessen has helped me through some of the toughest times I'm sure I will ever see. I highly recommend her for solving family court issues.

Top Notch Attorney!
I found Lisa Thiessen online through the office of Diane, Drew Butler and Associates. Upon my consultation I made it clear that I did not want a divorce but first needed to know logistical information and my legal rights. I don't think anyone ever dreams of setting foot into a Divorce Attorney's office but I was met with complete empathy and absolute professionalism. Lisa was an excellent communicator and worked with my passive husband in a fair/professional mannerism that yielded a journey without speed bumps. My divorce was considered a pretty "easy one" no kids...house to sell etc. Lisa was timely with emails, her paralegal Alyssa was wonderful and I felt that I was truly in wonderful hands; not great life circumstance but Lisa was: kind, compassionate, professional and was always ready with the next step; educating me along the way. Lisa has my utmost respect and I am eternally grateful for the positive difference she made in my life during the most difficult time in my life. In fact, I have now referred colleagues and friends to Lisa! A blessing! A top Notch Attorney!

Very good Lawyer
Lisa Thiessen has taken care of everything for me. Child support, child custody, and even helped me get a 57,000 dollar judgement against my ex wife! She's very smart, thorough, and compassionate about her job. I couldn't ask for a better attorney! She gets results. Thanks for everything Lisa!!!!

Lisa Thiessen sets the bar extremely high! You can't get a better attorney to represent you.
Lisa has represented me several times over the past 9 years. I am involved in a very complicated child custody/support and jurisdiction case. Lisa has always taken the time to be very thorough with my case. She has represented my children and myself with the highest level of professionalism and tact, I have always felt very confident knowing that she would fight for me, going to battle whenever necessary. Lisa held my ex responsible for financial obligations by establishing child support payments that I desperately needed to raise my children. Lisa and her staff took the time to explain all aspects of my case, and never backed-down from the "high-dollar" opposing counsel. I could always count on Lisa to return calls and emails. She and her staff are available and extremely helpful. She always came prepared to court, with her game-face on. I have recommended her numerous times, and will forever continue to do so. Although Lisa was fully prepared for trial, she helped me negotiate with the other parent to include a parental agreement that was satisfying to all parties. Her negotiation skills helped me avoid an extensive trial and charges that would ultimately be incurred. Lisa works diligently for her client, and is not afraid to use all resources available to strengthen her client's case. Lisa not only represents me, but she represents my children , and I take comfort in knowing that I have the best attorney I could ask for. Lisa is one of a kind, and would recommend her in a heartbeat.
