Highly Recommend
I reached out to Lisa regarding an employment issue. She promptly responded to my inquiry and was very timely in all her communications with me. In all of our conversations, she was very empathetic, kind, and supportive during a difficult, stressful time. I truly felt like I had someone in my corner. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in her practice, and she was able to provide amazing insight and advice based on her very thorough evaluation of my case. I was so pleased with her counsel and would highly recommend her.

Excellent, Knowledgeable Advocate
Lisa aggressively represented me in complex litigation with a very large client. From the beginning she was a great communicator with me. She gave me realistic advice. She was aggressive in advocating for me and the result was a settlement that was far greater than we had expected. I highly recommend her.

Hostile Work Environment
I was pleasantly surprised to get a call back from Lisa when my days at work were so unbearable. She listened to understand the situation thoroughly. Lisa clearly defined what my options would be at work as well as shed light on possible outcomes if terminated. Lisa is so knowledgeable in the area of work discrimination, harassment, and hostile environments. She was encouraging and empowering for me as well as sympathetic. I definitely want her on my side if it comes to hiring an attorney and you do too!!

Experienced, Intuitive & Tough
I was well represented by Lisa Bradner on a complicated case. Her experience and intuition were invaluable. She immerses herself in her client's case, to see it from their unique viewpoint. I really felt that she understood me and my case, and made herself available for my concerns and questions. She is not intimidated by anyone. If you want an attorney who will really fight for you, this is who you want in your corner.

Fantastic Attention to Detail
I normally don't give perfect ratings, because there is always room for improvement, but Lisa's attention to detail alone makes her deserve the highest rating. Once she collected all the documentation should could for my case, she was able to find additional violations by the defendants in the documentation that they provided, which only strengthened my case. This was key to the settlement that was reached. Her attention to detail and persistence resulted in our success.

Severance Negociation
Lisa Bradner represented me in an age discrimination and wrongful termination case against my former employer and I could not have been happier with the outcome. I could not have chosen a better attorney to represent me. Lisa specializes in employment law and it certainly shows. From the beginning, she was empathetic to my situation and carefully guided me through every step of the process. She knew exactly when to push harder against my former employer and when to back off. In the end she was able to help me negotiate a substantially larger severance payout -- more than double what I was originally offered. Lisa is a superb attorney and I would recommend her to anyone who has been the subject of a wrongful termination.

Personal Injury Case
Lisa worked on our complicated personal injury case arising from a car accident that involved all four members of our family. Lisa was always professional, diligent, and sympathetic to the emotional toll the case had on our family. Our case was resolved in mediation and our family was awarded a favorable settlement.

Severance negotiation
Worked with from Lisa and Rose Law firm during my separation agreement with my employer. Lisa was caring about my situation and knew all aspects of the employment law well. Helped me keep the focus and advised on which areas to target during negotiation. Lisa represented me well in negotiation with company's lawyer and the outcome was positive with fetching me additional 6 weeks of severance.

I highly recommend Attorney Lisa Bradner!
In January of 2012, Attorneys Lisa Bradner and Joe Rose helped me to regain my right to arbitration in a termination of employment. Lisa was always there to answer my questions and kept me briefed on the status of my case. In my experience she was professional, knowledgeable and cared about my situation and case. In January of 2013, I regained my right to arbitration which led to regaining my job and overturning the termination case in November of 2013.

Contracts and Settlement Agreements
Lisa Bradner assisted me with a very difficult contract dispute I was involved in. Although my adversary had agreed he violated our contract, he continued for months to refuse to re-pay me any of the thousands of dollars he owed me. Lisa Bradner examined the contract and the issues surrounding the dispute before composing an extremely effective demand letter to my violator. She continued to consult with me through-out the follow-up and took my input seriously, composing a mutually agreed upon plan, and then convincing the business owner to start re-paying me. To date, he has made each of his monthly payments according to the settlement arranged by Lisa Bradner. I cannot recommend her legal services highly enough. I am extremely grateful for all she has done for me.
