"I worked with Lisa through a particularly difficult period in my divorce, she is an amazing advocate, litigator and subject matter expert. Lisa quickly understood the complexities of my situation, proposed the best solution and helped me make significant progress with my case and ultimately resolve it at a lower cost than I expected to. Divorce is not fun! But if you have the right Counselor it can be a lot less painful and much simpler. I came to Lisa Mendes having had one bad experience and she restored my faith in lawyers, I still reserve the right to make lawyer jokes but do so much less frequently. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone at any stage of any proceeding in Family Law cases and I seldom write these things, it takes a really amazing experience to get me to do so. Thanks Lisa and I appreciate what you did for me."
