Testimonials
Since the beginning of my parenting time case Lisa has been attentive, thorough, patient, and considerate of how difficult the situation was. There were several frustrating nuances to this case that Lisa identified with which helped me set realistic expectations. I could ask her anything and never felt ignored or pandered to. It’s one thing to feel like someone just represents you, and it’s something very different when that person truly supports you. Lisa’s efforts got me 50/50 parenting time with my son with an ideal parenting schedule and 50/50 decision-making. This was absolute best case scenario and I am so grateful. She has given me hope that Dad’s absolutely do have rights, and I can not imagine where my son and I would be without her. Thank you forever for everything you have done for us! Matt

I had the pleasure of having Lisa Frigo represent me in a child parenting case. I was at once impressed with her professional and caring demeanor. She made me feel like I had her undivided attention and kept me updated with any changes or progress with my case. She handled a very emotional and personal matter with care and the outcome was better than anything I had imagined. I am now afforded the parenting time and decision making in my sons life that I did not think was possible. Anonymous
