I had never had to deal with a lawyer before, but I was blown away at Lisa Hall’s professionalism and attention to detail, while still being personal, kind, empathetic, and answering any question I had promptly. I felt like I had an advocate who was very realistic with my expectations, and who would fight for me when I was being taken advantage of. I feel like I had the best possible outcome of my divorce because I had the best advice and counsel. I highly recommend Lisa Hall at Hodges, Doughty & Carson.

Lisa is a consummate professional. She listened carefully and without time pressure on me. I found her easy to talk to, detail-oriented and intelligent. Knowing the hurried nature of the practice of law, I was pleasantly surprised by her aplomb. Karen Casteel, Lisa’s paralegal, was always timely in responding to my texts or calls and, I suspect, is one of the top “work horses” in the practice. She is kind and precise. That these women are able to do their best work speaks to the positive office attitude toward its employees, and to the character of the law firm that employs them. Thank you for your work on my behalf.
Lisa Hall – Superb Attorney

I recently went through a divorce and was represented by Lisa Hall. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney during this difficult time. Lisa was the utmost professional always displaying compassion, understanding and patience. She was always prompt in her responses to me and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I highly recommend Lisa Hall with Hodges, Doughty & Carson.
