Practice Areas



I have referred several family law clients and/or matters to Lisa Ann Sharpe, one of the partners at the law firm of Lasher Holzapfel Sperry & Ebberson in Seattle, WA. Ms. Sharpe not only accepted my referrals, but I also heard back from the clients, all of whom were very pleased with her firm's work. I am very pleased to report that the lawyers within the firm to whom she assigned particular matters were also excellent, likely as a result of her training, management and oversight. From my experiences working with many family law firms nationally and internationally, my experience working with this firm was one of the best. Without question, I can endorse this firm as a worthy recipient of the designation Best Law Firms in America.
