About me

Welcome. Thank you for stopping by my profile.

I believe in holding manufacturers to higher standards and restoring dignity to my clients after an injury or loss. Through my work on aviation incidents and motor vehicle crashworthiness cases, I combine the technical aspects of each case with winning legal theories. I have experience in complex personal injury litigation, products liability, wrongful death and conflict of laws.

  • J.D. Smith

    I had the honor and privilege of working on a case with Alisa when we worked together. Daily, I personally observed her dedication and her exceptional skills. She is one of the most caring and warm human beings you will ever meet. I have watched her grow as a person and lawyer and without a doubt she is among the best in the legal profession. Outside of her work she is a tireless volunteer, dedicated wife and mother. I am proud to endorse this exceptional lawyer.
