Elisa helped with the sale of our business in a very quick manner, then again with the probate of our parents’ estate. She is caring, answers questions right away, and gives invaluable advice. Highly recommend her for all kinds of legal needs.
She also volunteered in many aspects at the high school. She was a phenomenal judge for Mock Trials – I highly recommend that she throw her hat in the ring for a judgeship someday! She worked wonderfully with the students – she was patient, answered all their questions, and gave them great advice. A woman of many talents!

Elisa is a great attorney. She has helped me out regarding a couple of legal matters and will always be a straight shooter. Sometimes outcomes are not as planned but she truly looks out for her clients and their best interest.


A very knowledgeable and reasonable attorney

Hi Elisa, I just wanted to share with you that I made it!!!! I just had the interlock machine taken off of my car after a looooong year. I could not have gotten through this without you and if I haven’t told you before, Thank you so much for your support and all of your help. I truly did not think I would get through this whole ordeal.
