Lisa communicates effectively with her clients with empathy while assisting them to identify and work through their legal issues. She understands that a relationship breakdown can be one of the most stressful and unstable times in a person’s life, often fraught with uncertainty and confusion. Lisa’s work in her previous career as a health professional has strengthened her interpersonal skills assisting her to compassionately and confidently guide her clients through the family law process to its conclusion, allowing them to move forward independently and with confidence.
