Biography

In the last several years, Ms. Vance’s practice has included a central focus on family and marital disputes.

She promotes a gentler focus on marital termination, convinced that a family’s energies should be spent on the healthy development of children, rather than concentrating on marital angst. Ms. Vance works closely with mental health providers, so that clients can heal, rather than continue to wound those they do, and have, loved. As a result, the firm promotes collaborative law for marital disputes, whenever appropriate. When necessary, however, to protect families, Ms Vance's trial skills successfully promote the best interests of her clients and their children.
Lisa Vance is a trial lawyer who has won significant verdicts for companies with challenging disputes. These include dangerous vicarious liability claims of sexual assault and murder as well as document-intensive national litigation.

Ms. Vance has tried first impression cases at all levels of state and federal courts throughout the southwest, arguing emergent theories of law in trial and on appeal Lisa A. Vance is an AV rated lawyer and the firm is registered in the Martindale-Hubble Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers; her peers have granted her the highest level possible for competence and ethics.

Ms. Vance has recently been elected "Woman of the Year" by the VIP Division of the National Association of Professional and Executive Women (and was so named in 2010 and 2011 as well). Lisa has been recognized as one of the "Best Family Lawyers in San Antonio" by SA Scene Monthly Magazine every year since 2006. SA Scene, Scene Publications LLC. In the August 2015 publication, Lisa Vance was listed again for Family Law and again chosen as one of the "Best Litigation Attorneys" in the City.
