Lisa is a New Jersey native who, after spending years in large law firms litigating complex commercial and insurance cases, moved to Amherst in 2001 and realized that her passion was family law.
Lisa concentrates her work in high conflict divorce and matters involving children, as a litigator, mediator, and as a collaborative attorney. As a certified Category F Guardian ad litem, courts in the Western counties regularly appoint her to investigate, report upon, and make recommendations regarding parenting plans.
Nothing that I have done in the law has been more fulfilling than bringing peace and clarity to a client’s home and family life.
