I began practicing law in 1996. Since then, I have helped many clients in Maryland and the District of Columbia deal with divorce, custody, support, property, post-divorce issues, domestic violence, premarital agreements education, school discipline and campus sexual assault cases
Family law cases often involve significant financial issues and life-changing decisions that affect children. Divorce, custody and other legal matters can also generate a great deal of turmoil and raise many difficult questions about how to proceed.
I appreciate that each case is personal and different, and I advise an approach tailored to each client’s unique circumstances. Some cases are resolved through persuasive negotiation, while others require aggressive action and litigation. I practice collaborative law and recommend this option for individuals who seek a team-based approach to divorce. I also mediate divorce and custody matters.
I am committed to developing effective legal strategies and creative, practical solutions to help my clients achieve their goals in the most cost-effective manner.
Lisa provided me with exceptional counsel pertaining to post-divorce custody and support issues. Lisa's experience coupled with her sensitivity towards my children and their unique needs helped me navigate incredibly challenging matters and provide successful outcomes benefiting my children and me. I am immensely grateful I retained Lisa.”- Amy Blum
