Was assigned Lisa Pardini as my attorney, she gave me the wrong date for one of my court dates, and I ended up missing it. When I confronted her she left me a really nasty and unprofessional voicemail, and when I called her back the next day, she basically yelled at me to get out of the courthouse, and when I asked for a copy of my dismissal papers, she hung up the phone on me. I will be writing to multnomah county defenders about the incident, and if she is assigned as your attorney, I would recommend trying to switch.

I was assigned this lawyer for a traffic violation. Upon completing multiple requirements I tried to contact Lisa Pardini multiple times, probably 20 or so. I not only never heard back from her- once from her assistant- but when I came to court for my dismissal she showed an hour late. Lisa did not know I had completed diversion, the DA confirmed, and she had no organization regarding her clients cases. I observed an incorrect plea entered for one client, and another was almost completely ignored as she sifted through a large stack of papers.
