About Lisa A Vance

In the last several years, Ms. Vance’s practice has included a central focus on family and marital disputes.

Ms. Vance works closely with mental health providers, so that clients can heal, rather than continue to wound those they do, and have, loved. As a result, the firm promotes collaborative law for marital disputes, whenever appropriate. When necessary, however, to protect families, Ms Vance's trial skills successfully promote the best interests of her clients and their children. Lisa Vance is a trial lawyer who has won significant verdicts for companies with challenging disputes. These include dangerous vicarious liability claims of sexual assault and murder as well as document-intensive national litigation.
