    Attorney Profile

    The founder of her eponymous law firm, Lisa Staight focuses her practice exclusively on family law matters. From her office in Irvine, California, she provides astute representation to clients throughout Orange County. Admitted to practice before all California state courts since 1977, Ms. Staight has been certified as a specialist in family law by the Board of Legal Specialization of The State Bar of California since 1985.

    A significant portion of Ms. Staight's practice consists of her representation of people whose marriages are coming to an end and who thus are having to deal with such divorce-related issues as the division of complex community assets and debts, child custody and visitation, and spousal and child support. A forceful courtroom advocate for her clients when litigation proves to be necessary, she is an experienced negotiator as well, and this allows her to often help her clients reach an accord on these matters in a less-adversarial setting. Ms. Staight's family law background has also encompassed paternity disputes and establishment, and she regularly prepared and reviewed prenuptial agreements. She has also represented victims of domestic violence in their quest for protective orders, and for her clients whose marriages have already been dissolved, she helps them obtain the enforcement of or modifications to existing support and parenting orders.

    A Louisiana native, Ms. Staight attended Tulane University in New Orleans as an undergraduate, where she majored in political science and received a Bachelor of Arts cum laude in 1971. Her legal education was obtained at Pepperdine University School of Law, and she served on the Pepperdine Law Review before being awarded her Juris Doctor in 1977. Ms. Staight worked for the Offices of the Orange County Public Defender before entering private practice. She formed her own firm in 1991.
