Lisa Esser-Weidenfeller represents injury victims in personal injury and medical malpractice claims. She also represents individuals in cases against those who have committed horrific acts of sexual assault.

I became a lawyer because I love arguing and debating, especially on behalf of those who are not capable of advocating for themselves

I represent victims of medical malpractice and sexual assault survivors because these individuals have been harmed in such a way that they don’t have the strength to go against those that have harmed them, and are often left with devastating, life-long injuries. I enjoy bringing the truth to light.
