She works closely with local psychologists, mediators, drug and alcohol assessors, private investigators and other respected professionals in order to best represent her clients. Cognizant of the myriad financial and business issues that accompany the dissolution of marriage, Lisa counsels clients regarding decisions with respect to selling or keeping the marital home, division of retirement accounts and support matters.
