Attorney Profile
Lisa is an experienced family law litigator who focuses on complex divorces. She is an advocate who works to protect the best interests of her clients and their children. Lisa participated in the asset valuation of telecommunications businesses in one of the largest marital dissolutions in the United States. She combines this experience with her finance background to resolve cases that involve the split-up of substantial assets, property tracing, and the valuation of businesses. Lisa also resolves matters relating to marriage dissolutions, support, child custody, visitation, and property rights; drafts both pre- and postnuptial agreements; and handles post-judgment motions. Although she appears often in court in King County, Lisa also firmly believes in using mediation and arbitration to resolve conflict and disputes between parties in order to minimize the legal and emotional impact on her clients.
