Posted by Karen
I was fortunate that a Seattle attorney I knew referred me to Lisa DuFour for my case which involved CPS and dissolution. From the first meeting, she made it clear her focus and priority was a positive outcome for me and my child. Lisa was professional, knowledgeable, extremely patient and understanding. I was impressed by her thorough knowledge of the family court system and appreciate that, even as the case went on for a year and a half, her attention and focus never waned. She is astute and thorough - and impressively handled trial which, despite repeated delays, had a result more positive than I had expected.

We were fortunate enough to have Lisa represent us in dispute resolution regarding a schooling relocation matter, despite an extremely compressed schedule. My ex refused to discuss a school change civilly and we only had a couple weeks until the start of the school year. Lisa was very forthright in advising us that we had an extremely difficult challenge ahead of us with very little chance of success if we filed with the courts. Luckily, all parties agreed to mediation and legally binding arbitration before school started and Lisa’s "Two Steps Ahead" approach resulted with the outcome we desired; approval to relocate schools before the beginning of the school year. We spoke for the first time with Lisa on a Tuesday and by Thursday the arbiter approved our request to relocate…3 days!!! This is obviously not the norm, but I have no doubt this wouldn’t have even been possible without Lisa’s tremendous abilities and talent for litigation. Leading up to the mediation and arbitration, Lisa was extremely communicative and responsive; we didn’t have time to waste and she was acutely aware of that fact, despite her workload. She helped guide us through what to expect from the event itself and helped to formulate and construct our petition’s supporting documentation for arbitration. Within mediation Lisa was level headed, sensible and advised me as to strength and legal impact of possible settlement discussions and offers. But, during arbitration, Lisa’s overwhelming ability and two steps ahead approach took over. She was articulate, concise and above all calm while interacting with my ex who was combative, argumentative and dismissive. Each and every point that was made was addressed and countered by Lisa leaving my ex's side with nothing left to argue. I couldn't be more impressed and satisfied with the counsel Lisa provided and highly recommend her.

Lisa was on top of every detail from start to finish. My lengthy Parenting Plan modification, a tedious and stressful process, was expertly navigated by Lisa. She always made me feel like I was her only client by being responsive, understanding, professional and strategic at all times. She is excellent at looking ahead in the process and planning accordingly. Not only did Lisa handle the entire process with ease, but the results that Lisa obtained have improved the lives of myself and my children in ways beyond words. A million thanks to Lisa! There is no one other than Lisa whom I would want by my side for divorce/parenting plan/child support/custody issues.

Lisa has represented me in two separate cases and did an outstanding job in both.
She is very knowledgably in many areas.
-Lisa helped me with my relocation case. She has a very good demeanor about her and handles herself well. She makes sure I understands the processes and was completely honest with me.
- Lisa also helped me with child support issues.
In both instances, I felt very confident that she knew the laws and explained them to me in detail. Furthermore, she was very responsive to my questions and concerns all the way through the processes.
I would certainly recommend her to any of my friends.

Lisa was my attorney for a parenting plan modification case that had a lot of complicating issues that were not necessarily in my favor. She gave me excellent focused advice about what I needed to do and the type of documentation I needed to gather as well as being a supportive adviser through an incredibly stressful time. I ended up with the best possible outcome I could have asked for in mediation due to her expertise and ability to keep things on-track with my challenging ex-husband.

Lisa DuFour is a diligent, kind and empathetic lawyer who represented our son in a contentious custody case. She came to court organized and well prepared. She was respectful but assertive, her points straightforward and succinct. her demeanor very professional. More simply put, she cared about making things right for our son and his children, and she did her job well.

I highly recommend Lisa. She is a top family law attorney in Seattle. She was able to handle my case and skillfully addressed a year of motions and counter motions. My case was complex and there were many problems dealing with the opposing side as the case took on an adversarial climate. Lisa was able to successful bring the case to Mediation after multiple court appearances.
Lisa listened with compassion and responded professionally at all times. I am so grateful for her care, legal expertise and the entire team at Integrative Family Law. I would highly recommend Lisa Dufour for your family law case.

Lisa is the best attorney ever. I was in a horrible marriage, abused and married for my money. Lisa got a annulment after being married to the looser for 6 months!!! That's unheard of in Washington, my other attorney before Lisa said I could not get a annulment, she made it happen. Lisa was very informative and on task at all times. Her rates were actually reasonable for the super star she is. If your getting a divorce I highly recommend
Lisa Du Four for a successful outcome.

Lisa is kind and compassionate. She stepped in when my first attorney created a mess and took over fantastically. When going through a difficult process, she brings humanity and empathy, and I know that she gave me time that she never billed me for. I recommend her as a knowledgeable, kind, and fair advocate.

Lisa has been very professional and very supportive during our daughter's dispute regarding custody and relocation of our granddaughter. Although initially committed to settling out of court (we had 2 mediation sessions), Lisa soon determined that the baby's father and his mother were never going to mediate in good faith unless they got everything they wanted. Lisa then decided we needed to get in front of the judge which was a very good strategic move despite the worries of "how will a judge see things?'. The judge ruled in favor of my daughter on the issues before the court and acknowledged the potential alcohol and anger issues in his decision. As this was just a preliminary hearing on relocation and a temporary parenting plan, I will update this review after final rulings.
