I’m honored to be able to help other moms and dads like me. And I'm especially flattered to hear their kind words. If you have any feedback, please feel free to send it along. I’m always looking for ways to improve and, of course, happy to hear about the things I’m doing that are working well. After all, my goal is to make the things you're doing that much easier.
"As a working mother, or expectant mother, there is nothing scarier than navigating the Human Resources department. For me, I was worried about balancing my job with my financial, physical and emotional needs. I immediately called on Lisa for help. Within two minutes, she had calmed me down. She easily and simply explained my rights as an employee, and empowered me to demand what I was entitled to. She talked me through how to speak with my employer and what language to use. Because of Lisa, I was able to remove the stress of securing maternity leave and benefits from my life. Lisa is smart, calm, easy to talk to, and a valuable asset for any career mom."
"Lisa's advice concerning my maternity leave benefits was invaluable. Lisa not only advised me on the law, but also on how to communicate both my rights and my requests to my employer in a way that was productive. Lisa also helped ensure I got full disability and family leave benefits from the State. Since I've had my daughter, Lisa's been there to answer all my questions concerning hiring and properly paying our nanny so that I comply with all tax and employment laws. Lisa always takes the time to fully answer my questions and even helped make my transition back to work much less stressful. My husband and I highly recommend her unique service--part lawyer, part psychologist and part friend--to any parent."
"When I went on maternity leave from my job at an elementary school, Lisa was able to provide me with invaluable advice and direction that even my HR contact at work didn't know. As a result, she was able to get me money that I had not realized I was entitled to. Furthermore, once I could consult someone with Lisa's expertise, I was able to confidently transition to being a parent with a far lighter burden on my shoulders."
"Lisa is definitely not your stereotypical lawyer -- she is warm, compassionate, honest, and very funny! Meeting with Lisa is like meeting with a good friend . . . with one huge exception: she knows a TON about mommy-related legal issues. And she knows how to explain those things really well to those of us with mommy-brain. Lisa prepared an excellent employment contract for our part-time nanny, which gave us the peace of mind that both our family and our nanny were protected. It's clear that Lisa loves helping other moms. I can't recommend Mom, Esq. enough!"
"Soon after announcing my pregnancy to my boss he began giving me negative feedback on my work for the first time in my career. I was being treated unfairly and didn't know what to do when HR ignored my complaints. Lisa helped me to understand that crying in the bathroom was not my only option. I had rights and a way forward. Without Lisa, I don't know how I would have gotten through this difficult situation - Mom, Esq. was a life saver!"
