"Lisa went above and beyond. She gave me a new perspective on the case, offering new arguments that would never have occurred to me. Her writing was impeccable, and she researched caselaw from my jurisdiction that provided me with an understanding of the arguments she suggested. My client was extremely happy with the end result, and he has asked me to engage Lisa's services in the future."
