Lisa M. Hirschman
Family disputes are stressful and when it gets to the point of separation, it is a watershed moment requiring careful navigation. Lisa brings years of experience to these disputes so that you come out the other end in the best situation possible. As a child of divorce, Lisa draws on her personal experiences when negotiating the emotions and conflicts that often arise in divorces and custody disputes.
Lisa obtained her undergraduate degree from Luther College, in Decorah, IA, double majoring in anthropology and classics. She joined the work force for a few years before attending law school at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. While in Madison, she worked for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, most notably working on the first surrogacy case to be presented to the Court, assisting in creating case law guidance for surrogacy practitioners in Wisconsin. Lisa was also involved in pro bono work, assisting individuals with AIDS in Louisiana with their various legal problems that arise due to prejudice. Lisa graduated law school with a certificate in Family Law, noting her concentration in this area of law.
Since graduating, Lisa has experienced high conflict and low conflict cases, from divorces and custody disputes to adoption and grandparents’ rights cases. As the level of conflict runs the gamut, it is important to have a variety of approaches to adapt. Lisa helps clients through these situations by focusing on the people involved and providing creative processes by which to reach the clients’ end goals. There are many paths to the end result. Lisa finds the best one for you and your situation.
While not working, Lisa spends time with her husband, three children, two cats, and two horses. She enjoys competitive (and non-competitive) horseback riding, gardening, and general home improvement.
