A few areas Lisa Stone dedicates her passion...


Family law is our primary litigation focus. With staff who grew up with divorced parents, we understand first-hand the impact of your difficult decision, and dig deep to relate to our clients. Being able to communicate in a personal and empathetic way allows us to ensure we always keep your well-being top of mind.


Figuring out your new family dynamic is stressful, and we know your children’s comfort, health, and happiness are your top priority. Child custody conversations aren’t typically fun, but we work to at least make them as easier. We devote ourselves to helping you take care of your family’s future, and assist in helping you write your next chapter with ease.


Beyond helping our clients overcome these difficult challenges, we carefully collaborate with them, overseeing child support. The joy we experience when we see our clients smile and laugh is our favorite reward. Being able to hear their stories, years later, and to see the outcome of their evolved family dynamic, is a feeling we couldn’t experience in any other career.


We’re firm believers in educating our clients on the importance of co-parenting after separation. While it's hard to see past the transition, parenting doesn't end when your marriage does. In fact, it’s a new, involved challenge. We work with you to understand how you and your counterpart can best continue parenting together, even if it’s no longer under the same roof.
