Lisa Parsons is the firm's administrative and legal assistant, and has worked with Jim since 1999. Prior to joining our office, she managed the office of a respected attorney in Northwest Florida. With over 25 years of experience in the legal field, Lisa is an invaluable resource to the firm and our clients. Organization is highly prized in a law office, and it is one of Lisa's greatest strengths; she keeps the office running smoothly and makes sure no detail is overlooked in a file.
Lisa is involved in many aspects of our cases, including research, drafting correspondence, scheduling, document preparation and assisting clients in complying with discovery requests. Lisa's handling of those tasks that do not require an attorney to complete them allows the office to work more efficiently and cost-effectively. She works closely with Jim, and often serves as a liaison for clients. Though Jim makes it a point to be accessible, when he is in court or otherwise unavailable, Lisa is often able to answer client questions, especially those about the legal process.
When clients call the office, Lisa's is usually the first voice they hear. Having worked in this field for as long as she has, Lisa understands the stresses and anxiety clients go through when facing a lawsuit. She enjoys being able to address client concerns and help relieve their anxieties, and makes a point of being approachable so that no one ever feels uneasy about calling with a question when they need to.
Lisa lives in New Jersey with her husband, and is the proud mother of two daughters.
