The founder of her eponymous law firm, Lisa M. Standish focuses her practice exclusively on family law matters. Based in Wexford, Pennsylvania, she provides advice and counsel to clients throughout Allegheny, Beaver, and Butler counties and other parts of the greater Pittsburgh metropolitan area. Ms. Standish has been admitted to practice in Pennsylvania since 1999, and she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

A significant portion of Ms. Standish's practice involves her representation of people whose marriages are coming to an end and who, as a result, are having to deal with such related legal issues as spousal and child support, property division, and child custody and visitation. An accomplished and forceful courtroom advocate when litigation is necessary, her background in mediation and collaborative divorce allows her to help many of her clients reach an accord on these matters in a less-adversarial manner through the use of those alternative dispute resolution methods.

In addition to her matrimonial practice, Ms. Standish's family law experience includes the preparation and review of prenuptial and post-marital agreements, adoptions, and grandparents' rights. She also helps clients whose marriages have already been dissolved and who are now seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing parenting and support orders. Her successful track record in all these areas, as well as her high degree of ethics, have earned Ms. Standish the recognition of her colleagues, including a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.

Ms. Standish is a member of several organizations related to her practice areas, including the Collaborative Law Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals. She is a 1998 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
