Lisa Voso is the most amazing attorney I have ever met (including my previous years of experience working as a legal secretary), and does not know the meaning of the words "no" or "can't".
Lisa Voso was the answer to my prayers, settling my accident claim against all odds for a fair and just six figure amount. She efficiently, enthusiastically, and energetically fought for what she told me she believed was "Right". Because of her amazing skill and determination I was able to pay off all of my medical bills and debts incurred due to a 2005 automobile accident in which a driver talking on a cell phone struck me and changed my life forever. With the money left I will be able to afford care for the pain that I now will face for the rest of my life.
At the time I had sought out a reputable law firm to assist me in filing a claim for injuries sustained in an auto accident, and found myself increasingly frustrated with the obstacles insurance companies place in front of people in order to prevent them from continuing to fight for a fair settlement. Over the years I began, unfortunately, to understand a legal judicial process that encourages clients to give in and settle for lesser amounts in order to avoid the long, stressful legal battles. Coping with the physical (and financial) pain can prove overwhelming. Has it not been for my incredible attorney, the burdens placed on myself and my family would have led me to give up and settle for the pitiful sum proposed by the powerful attorneys representing the insurance company of the person who had totalled my car in 2005.
From the moment Lisa Voso took over my case at my law firm, results began to take place. As my attorney, Lisa Voso consistanty kept in touch with me, calling and encouraging me to continue to fight for justice, to keep having faith , reassuring me that she would not give up until she helped me to win a reasonable settlement. Because of her, my faith was restored in a legal system that previously had thwarted and stalled efforts to attain justice and a reasonable settlement for my medical bills, loss of work and income, necessary changes in career, daily pain, restriction of movement and mobility, and overwhelming lifestyle changes that occured as a result.
Lisa Voso told me she believed a six figure settlment was the only outcome she would accept. Like David facing down Goliath, this petite powerhouse informed opposing counsel and insurance company employees that she would not give in until they offered a settlement that was fair and just. Unrelenting positivity, knowledge of the law, and tireless dogged determination ultimately led to the six figure settlement she so confidently told me she would attain for me.
I will always appreciate how hard she worked. She gave me my life back, and I will always appreciate her hard work. Lisa Voso is an inspiration, and stands as an example to all other attorneys, and I thank her for everything!!!

My wife and I first became clients of Lisa Voso when my wife was in a serious auto accident that required spine surgery. We had retained another attorney who was not performing to our satisfaction. To say Lisa was different is an understatement. She came to our home, got us all on the same page and never stopped from there. She did what she said she was going to do, when she said it would be done and kept us informed throughout the whole litigation process. There was never a phone call that was not returned and never correspondence that we were not copied on. She stood toe to toe with me which is never an easy process.
Lisa Voso is perhaps the finest attorney and person I have ever met. She is the polar opposite of what most people think attorneys are. I trust her judgment in any situation and would give her my highest endorsement. She says what she means and means what she says.

Lisa Voso is a a remarkable person. She is a talented and competent attorney, public speaker and business person. She has a winning personality that clients appreciate - no stuffy lawyers here - and as a fellow attorney is generous with her time and resources.
