    Domestic Violence

     

    Divorce matters are complex enough to begin with, but when there are issues of Domestic Violence, an attorney with knowledge, experience, and compassion in this area is imperative.  For more than a decade, Lisa has dealt with legal matters concerning domestic violence.  She has attended many trainings, both local and national, focusing on all areas of Domestic Violence.  She then became a trainer herself in this area.  Serving in the capacity as Prosecutor and Supervisor of the Domestic Violence Division, Lisa has tried hundreds of cases involving Domestic Violence.   She has also participated in hundreds of contested Order of Protection hearings.

    In the area of Family Law, when Domestic Violence is present in a case, it is important that an attorney have a background in dealing in this area when addressing important issues concerning custody and visitation, and continued safety of the children and parent.  Having someone that understands not only the legal process but also the difficult emotional turmoil that is caused in these cases is imperative.  Lisa will work with compassion and understanding and support her clients through the family court process both in Divorce and Order of Protection matters.
