All too familiar with divorce on a personal level, Lisa B. Canterberry brings to her family law practice not only 29-plus years’ experience in and out of the courtroom but also an acute empathy and understanding of what’s in the hearts and minds of her clients.

A native of Oklahoma, Lisa earned her Bachelor’s in Business Administration/Accounting from the University of Oklahoma in 1985, with additional studies in French and Theater, the latter of which comes in handy in the courtroom. Following graduation, she moved to the Dallas area and worked as in internal auditor for the banking industry before successfully passing the Certified Public Accountant’s examination in 1987. With those credentials, Lisa worked for Grant Thornton, performing audits of manufacturing and retail concerns, as well as non-profit organizations and banks.

But with a desire to help families in crisis, Lisa decided to pursue a career in law. Attending Southern Methodist University School of Law, she was active in student government, received the American Jurisprudence Award in Constitutional Law, and served as the Vice-Magister for Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity.  Earning early recognition for her aptitude in the courtroom, she was one of four students chosen to participate on SMU’s National Trial Team and participated in American Trial Lawyer Association competitions.  She earned her law degree, a Juris Doctorate in 1991 and accepted a position with a small local firm.

In 1992 Lisa opened her own law firm and for the past twenty years has focused primarily on family law.  While Lisa’s firm accepts cases in criminal, guardianship, estate planning, and business matters, Canterberry Law concentrates primarily on the family relationship.  With her fierce dedication to her clients, in Texas the word is that you want Lisa on your side in litigation.

When not practicing law, Lisa can be found at her son’s college campus based events, supporting his educational pursuits.  Lisa is additionally an accomplished musician and enjoys writing and playing in her rarely found spare time.  Her hobbies include cooking, karaoke, planning special events, involvement in her church community, and researching family genealogy.
