Lisa has been a zealous advocate for over a decade.  She started her legal career working for a firm which handled civil, criminal and family law matters.  From there she worked in juvenile court handling abuse and neglect and delinquency matters.  Subsequent to that, she served the public as a prosecutor for nearly eight years including in the capacity of supervisor of the domestic violence unit in Kane county and supervisor of the traffic/misdemeanor division in Kendall county.  Lisa then opened her own practice and currently concentrates in the area of family and criminal law,  handling matters such as custody and divorce, orders of protection, guardian ad litem work, as well as traffic, DUI and juvenile cases.



Lisa believes that the justice system can be daunting for those who have never had the experience of being in court.  She feels it is her duty to her clients to work tirelessly to not only aggressively fight for them in the courtroom, but to also provide guidance and support outside the courtroom as they move through their case and the legal process.

When faced with emotionally charged matters that have significant long term effects on clients' lives, lisa will work as a compassionate advocate for her clients both in and out of the courtroom using the knowledge and vast experience she has gained over the last decade.
