James SteveLandlord & Tenant client

Ms. Burris was professional, accessible and handled my tenant eviction with tenacity. She made me feel comfortable and confident that the process would work out for me and it did. I was very impressed with her negotiating skills with my tenant and her ability to always keep my best interests at hand! We may have to get a writ to complete the process but I am very happy to have had her on my side. I would definitely call her and use her services again.

Precious JenningsLandlord & Tenant client

Lisa Burris brilliantly/ effortlessly helped my wife and I with an deceitful tenant that refused to pay rent and leave our property. From our initial call to Lisa Burris, she has consistently been available to answer our questions and has provided us with a high level of service. No matter how busy she may have been, she always responded immediately to all of our needs and were spot on with her legal analysis of our situation. My wife and I, always felt as though we were one of her most important clients even though our issue was probably a minor one for her. She confidently assured us that our tenant was now dealing with an experienced attorney and that she was in the driving seat from this point forward, and that there was no need for us to worry. We honestly slept better after speaking with Lisa. I highly recommend Lisa Burris to anyone looking for an experienced attorney with outstanding service and positive results!!
