These comments were made by fellow attorneys during the annual nomination process.

“As a lawyer, I only refer cases to other lawyers that are of the highest quality. When it comes to defending DUI/DWI cases, there are none better than Lisa Wells.”

“Lisa is focused on giving her clients individual attention. She shows compassion for her clients, and fights for all of them like they are the most important and only case she has.”

“Lisa is dedicated to her clients like few other lawyers. I have seen her commitment, compassion, and integrity first hand. She is the epitome of a Super Lawyer.”

“An excellent attorney who truly cares about her clients. Well trained previously as a prosecutor.”

“Lisa is a definitely a rising star in the world of criminal defense. Although she went to law school later in life, she has been successful in whatever career she has chosen. When she made the switch from prosecutor to defense attorney last year, I knew it would not be long before she became one of the most sought after defense attorneys. I suspect it won't be long before she takes her place amongst the best defense lawyers in the area.”
