  • Lisa was my divorce attorney a few years ago. Marriage dissolution can be messy business--mysterious too, for those of us who aren't lawyers. I had lots of questions as well as some big decisions to make. Lisa guided me through the whole ordeal and always made me feel at ease. She has a great depth of knowledge as well as respect for the legal system and truly embodies the term Justice for All.

    - Pamela

  • Lisa assisted me with my child support and visitation case. She was very knowledgeable and confident. When ever I would call in a panic, both she and her assistant Sandy would give me reassurance and helped me to keep my piece of mind. My case ended in a positve way and I would have no hesitations in recommending her services.

    - Lissa

  • Going through a divorce is never easy, but Lisa Nyuli made it as easy as I think possible. She did an excellent job of keeping the process moving, while at the same time preserving what was financially in my interest. She was always responsive when I had questions or concerns, calling me back or emailing me within a day or two, and her fees were very reasonable. Hire Lisa you won't regret it!!

    - Halle

  • Lisa was an excellent attorney that stood by my side and fought for her clients needs. Divorce is a hard process, but I appreciated her advice and counsel. I will continue to recommend her to others in need of a good attorney.

Response to COVID-19:
At Ariano, Hardy, Ritt, Nyuli, Richmond, Lytle & Goettel, P.C., we have implemented our business continuity procedures, which include working remotely, if needed. This is a difficult and uncharted course of events for all of us. We are committed to meeting the needs of our clients as this situation unfolds. For the safety of all, we will be limiting in-person meetings to only those necessary, but we continue to be available by telephone, email and via our website.

For our litigation clients, please note that due to Circuit Court imposed closures, cases are being delayed at least 30 days, unless there is a genuine emergency. In the interim court access is severely limited. During this time, we will continue to move cases forward as much as possible outside of Court.

We appreciate the difficulty that all of this presents, and AHR will continue to work tirelessly for our clients as we have done for almost 40 years.
