The Best of the Best
I hired Lisa to represent me in my divorce. The circumstances in my case were probably the hardest that a lawyer can deal with. Specifically, my ex wife was abusive and extremely mentally ill. Without Lisa, I do not believe my children would be in a safe place right now. She was honest and forthcoming about my advantages, weak points, and things to consider. She was not afraid to tell me when I was wrong, which should be appreciated in cases like this. The divorce was long and drawn out, 15 months. During that time, Lisa was patient with my stress, and always answered questions in a timely manner. If you want a lawyer with integrity and honesty, but also knows how to win, you would do well to hire Lisa. There is not enough gratitude in the world for me to express just what she has done for my children and me.

Very Satisfied
I contacted and hired Lisa several years ago on an emergency child custody issue. She was amazing, walking me through what I needed to know and do. I hired her again this year because I trust her skills, and appreciate how she fights for me and my child.

Very Pleased
Lisa represented me in a child custody case. She was always prompt and prepared. She was very honest with me and helped me set realistic goals with the custody agreement. I truly believe I would not have custody of my children had I chose someone else to represent me. I have not hesitated in recommending her to my friends.

Private Adoption
We hired Lisa Wright to represent our birth mother during our adoption. From the first time I spoke with her she was very friendly and professional. She always made our questions priority and gave our birth mom the support and guidance she needed to make tough decisions for her child. From the meetings we had with her to signing papers in the hospital she was supportive and professional. We hope to adopt in the future and plan to use Lisa again. I highly recommend her to you. *The negative reviews listed on her pages do not seem accurate based off my interaction with her and her office.*

Very sweet to work with.
Lisa represented my daughter in an adoption case. She explained everything in great detail....in terms my daughter could understand. She did not rush my daughter and wanted her to understand what she was signing. She came to the hospital after birth and again asked if my daughter had any questions before signing the paperwork to give up her baby to the adoptive family. Very professional and very understanding. It was a very tough situation to deal with, but Lisa covered all the details and basically walked us thru it at the appointment prior to delivery. It was obvious she wanted the best for my daughter in this situation.

Lisa
Lisa definitely has a heart for who she is taking care of. I felt so protected even after my court date. She made me feel super comfortable and I always knew that no matter what she was going to have my back. Court was a scary thing for me but while I was in there Lisa never stepped down and helped me fight my case at full force. I would recommend her to anyone needing someone who you can trust and get the job done. THANK YOU LISA! You’re one amazing person!

Fights for her clients
Lisa obviously has a heart for her clients. This is so obvious in even the first consultation. She’s not afraid to be honest even when results may not be what her client wants. She fights had in court and doesn’t back down. I would trust her with my life.

Advoccate for Life
I hired Lisa as my attorney. She went the distance multiple times for my family. She was honest, up-front, professional in court, always prompt and prepared. I would recommend her to my personal and professional connections anytime. She represented me whole-heartedly and is my Advocate for Life.

Excellent lawyer
Lisa represented me in my custody case to get sole custody of my children. She was always there to answer all my questions and always made me feel like I was her top priority. She genuinely cares about her clients and fights so hard for them. I highly recommend her!

Wonderful Attorney
Lisa Wright took on my case probono to get sole custody of my daughter. First off I am a male so it is awfully hard to get custody as a father. Lisa Wright fought her ass off for me and she won our case. I now have sole custody of my daughter and couldn't be happier. I paid nothing but the trial cost. I definitely recommend her.
Response from Lisa Wright February 8, 2018
I am delighted that we were able to make things happen in your case. Thank you for trusting me with your family.

Unethical, incompetent, non communicative
Lisa Wright was recommended to me by one of my clients, and she sounded like a great fit for me. I reached out via email. Didn't hear back for some time (weeks). When she finally did email me back, she said that my email had gotten sent to her junk folder. OK happens all of us, no big deal. Communication continued to be an issue. I had to pursue her. I continually reached out. At some point I finally even left a voicemail just saying that if I don't hear from the office in the next day or so, that I would assume that she did not wish to, or could not take my case at this time. They finally got back to me and I went in for a meeting. I gave her a retainer of $3k. I signed the documents that she prepared during our meeting, she said she would file them in the next 7-10 days. There was some time sensitivity but 7-10 was acceptable to me. I left feeling pretty good, like she understood my case, and that the course of action we had chosen was good. Week after week, I heard nothing, even after asking for updates. During the months of correspondence from me reaching out to conclusion, I literally got every excuse in the book for the terrible communication, the spam folder, severe illness, and death in the family. Finally, 25 days later, I told the office to wait on filing. I was having second thoughts about going forward with my case. Then all of a sudden, Lisa claims she had just driven up to Clackamas county just that day to file, but only stopped the filing process when she received my email saying I was having second thoughts. How convenient that she could bill for the $800 of time to drive to Clackamas once I said to wait. After 25 days of ignoring my requests for updates. It's almost comical. I let the office know that I was not going to proceed with my case. When I asked for the remainder of my retainer back, first Lisa said that she had sent it back in December and she would have to put a stop payment on that check before issuing another. Then she said she was waiting on checks for her new account, the next week it was the same excuse, and then in the end she told me that she had actually "goofed" and that not only was none of my retainer left, but that I owed them money. To recap: I had ONE 90 minute meeting with Lisa, and no paperwork was ever filed. For $3k?!?!?! In what universe. I went back-and-forth with her to try to come to a logical conclusion to this conflict, and she just acted as though she was flabbergasted that I would be upset and think that I did not get my moneys worth.
