HOW TO BE "SUCCESSFUL" IN YOUR LEGAL CASES

Lisa's Philosophy

The Choice is Yours

Only you can decide whether a divorce, premarital agreement, or other legal action is right for you.  Lisa will help you explore your options based on years of experience to determine the best timing and course of  action.

Client Focused Service

No two clients or cases are the same.  Lisa strives to provide excellent service  to meet the needs of each of her clients from staffing to advocacy.  She is compassionate, detailed oriented, and ethical.

Realistic Goals Within the Bounds of the Law

Contrary to popular belief, divorce is not a battle to be fought and/or won by attorneys. Lisa educates clients about the law and their dispute resolution options and helps them create the most efficient process to meet their goals within the bounds of the law.

Future Security

Lisa helps clients ensure that their affairs are in order whether planning for an upcoming marriage or the administration of their estate upon death. Premarital agreements and detailed estate plan documents provide clients with many opportunities to clarify and control future outcomes.

The added “win” of achieving these goals is to minimize the financial and emotional cost of the process.

Based on Lisa’s experience, including her knowledge of the law and the local community, she provides an honest assessment based on the facts of your case. Communication, education, hard work and a dedicated staff are keys to establishing the relationships that allow her to better serve your needs.
