The Circle of Excellence recognizes female attorneys who have been previously honored as top women, but whose continuing achievements merit additional recognition.
"Lisa is incredibly deserving of this honor. She always puts the client first and goes the extra mile to provide clear, concise advice, and strong innovative advocacy.
