Client Testimonials

Lisa has worked on several projects for my company. Her work has always been thorough and very professional. Her attention to detail has been very impressive and I highly recommend her services.

We were first time home buyers and the sellers were trying to pull out of our contract right before inspection. We really wanted this home. They were bullying us and were having their kids contact us trying to scare us away that they had contacted a lawyer. We were shocked and really did not want to give up this house. We retained Lisa for help. She was amazing and so caring toward our situation. I don’t know what we would have done without her. She fought for us and helped us through. We did wind up letting go eventually as they were adamant they were never going to let us have this house, even after we tried to work out letting them stay longer….she helped us get a settlement and closure. We were able to put that toward a new house which worked out even better.

When the real estate market crashed, my wife and I were forced to do a Short Sale. Even though I am in the real-estate business and have watched several clients go through the process it was terrifying to my wife and I. Lisa was able to weave through the paperwork and the convoluted Court process and make it as painless as possible. We appreciated her kind, patient attitude as we resolved it. Her professionalism was comprehensive and efficient. Hopefully we will never need her services for this process again, but if we did, she would be the first person I called. I'm glad she is on our team!

My association with Lisa was terrific. I live in Colorado but needed an attorney in New Mexico and she did a fantastic job for me. She is diligent, intelligent and represented my needs in a very thorough way.

Lisa worked with us to resolve an issue with some tenants that were basically squatters. We had tried to work with several other lawyers over the last two years with no results. She resolved the issue within three weeks. Her skills and knowledge were excellent. If she had questions about the law she found answers. She worked very well with us and the other lawyer. She was very honest and straight forward with her ideas to correct the issue, to remove the squatters. We look forward to working with her in the future when needed.

I recently had the opportunity to utilize Lisa’s service in a legal matter for my business. I found her to be professional, responsive, thorough and comprehensive in her representation on my behalf. Her insight, perspective and legal knowledge delivered a favorable outcome in an efficient and timely manner. I recommend her services without reservation.
