Lisa spends much of her free time pursuing one of her favorite passions, race car driving. She is a member of the BMW Car Club of America, BMW-CCA Club Racing, Mercedes-Benz Club of America; and Porsche Club of America. She has also volunteered for Doberman Rescue of North Texas, an organization that specializes in seeking permanent, loving homes for rescued Dobermans; she has previously volunteered as an organizer and speaker at a Women's Chamber of Commerce Money & Power Conference; and been Race Chair for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation's Austin Race for the Cure.
When asked about her legal career, Lisa says “as a trial attorney and amateur race car driver, I understand the importance of being aggressive at the right time and place, of making the right decision under pressure, and of striving to finish first. I attribute my success to an absolute dedication to my clients’ best interests, combined with the skills and experience I’ve developed in an array of disputes that have affected nearly every aspect of my clients’ business interests. And because court trials should always be a last resort, I leverage my trial experience into “litigation mitigation” in which I assist clients in reducing the costs and risks of lawsuits in the first place by preparing or revising their agreements and procedures.”
