Testimonials

Morris Handler, Esq.

"Timely, high-quality research is crucial to the success of the trials and motions I handle as a solo litigator. Lisa Solomon has always provided me with top-notch research, even on rush projects. In our discussions, she always relates the existing caselaw to the issues facing my clients. Working with Lisa is like working with a partner: she has become an essential resource in my office for all research projects."

She reliably completes assignments on the timetable that we have agreed to—no last minute surprises! She's also simply a pleasurable person to deal with. I heartily recommend her services."

Jay Goldenberg, Esq.

"I retained Lisa Solomon to research a matter involving an Illinois land trust. Her research and cogent analysis of the state of the law helped me to accurately evaluate my client's position. We ended up settling the matter on much better terms than I initially thought possible."

New York City Personal Injury Attorney

"Last year, a colleague referred me to Lisa Solomon for assistance in drafting a motion to vacate an order dismissing a personal injury case in which I represented the family of a retarded man who was badly injured in a fire. While the case was pending, my wife (who was also my secretary) was diagnosed with cancer, and died after a long illness. The repercussions from my wife's death triggered mental and physical illnesses, during which I failed after many reminders to put the case on the trial calendar. Lisa's research uncovered other cases involving dismissals resulting from a lawyer's impairment, and she helped me draft a motion explaining why dismissal was not justified in light of these facts. Thanks to Lisa's work, the dismissal was vacated. The case later settled for $3 million—a favorable figure attributable, in part, to some research Lisa did concerning damages.

I couldn’t have done it without Lisa: not only is she a powerful writer, but she also compassionately guided me through the process of drafting what was, for me, a difficult motion to make, helping to protect my interests and the interests of my client."

Patricia A. Sokolich, Esq.

"Like most solo practitioners, there are times when I'm just swamped with work. Recently, during one of these busy periods, I needed to file a post-trial memo concerning the proper construction of an ambiguous term in a separation agreement. Lisa came to the rescue, clearly identifying the issues and writing a concise yet powerful brief that showed my client's case in the best possible light. Lisa is dependable and efficient, and her quick turn-around gave me plenty of time to review the draft she sent me before filing it.

Before finding Lisa, I used a large legal research and writing services company on a few occasions. The work product I received from that company was fairly generic and did not really incorporate the facts of my cases. By contrast, I have used Lisa Solomon's legal research and writing services a number of times over the last few years, and she always tailors her research to the facts of the case at hand, providing the basis for particularly persuasive legal arguments. Lisa is a lifesaver!"
