well, if you worked for evan, you know she carried his office for years while he did whatever. She may have not been assessable to clients, but that was no fault of hers. I too worked there and respected her desire and dedication everyday. She made him alot of money. So say what you want, but I bet you are just disgruntled. If its all about the money, where does her money go. I haven't noticed her living too ritzy.

So I used to work at attorney evan meade's office when KNJ worked there before she started working in elizabethton and I can promise you that she is aweful!! Don't waste your money even if money isn't an issue. You will be extremely pissed if you pick her to represent you. She won't get anything done (she's all talk no action) and she avoids her own clients like the plague!! I don't know why ppl have recommended her on here, hell its prob her trying to promote herself, but only for the money! On the other hand, I can tell you Lisa Rice is prob the only other attorney in this area that I would ever recommend! She "gets it done" so to speak, she fights for her clients and won't stop fighting until she gets what you want accomplished. She stays extremely busy, but that's bc she's good! She can be difficult to get an appointment scheduled bc she is so busy, but I can tell u once she found out what my situation was, I had an appt with her in less than 24hrs, and thank god I did, or I wld have lost my mind. My spouse filed for divorce and kept me from seeing or talking to my child for 2 weeks. They were also trying to get full custody and me have no visitation ever. Well I can tell you by the end of all of it, I had full custody but I did grant limited visitation, on my terms, for my child's sake. And Lisa made a total and complete mockery of them and their attorney, and that by their illegal actions of keeping my child from me for no real reason (or alleged) caused unimaginable pain and suffering, and only a heartless person/attorney would instruct someone to do that and clearly they did not care about the best interest of my child, and no loving parent would actually put their child thru that! I won in every aspect possible, but without lisa......I don't even want to think what might have transpired. You will not regret choosing her to represent you!!!!!!!!!!

This whole Johnson/Rice/Fang lovefest slugfest is quite comical. I know them all. Very well. They all put their panties on the same way, Zippers first!!
Seriously, Rice is not Superwoman. Johnson is not as bad or as good as some say. And Fain is just plain a Pain and quite gay. Truth be told, IF you want a good chance of getting primary custody of your kid, BE the Best Parent you can be; dont use your energy to trash the other parent; and find you an attorney you can afford and relate to.
The FACTS usually win out no matter the mouthpiece.

I can assure you I am the farthest thing from disgruntled as I can get. I hated every minute of every day that I worked there and finally was tired of being misserable so I left, and I never looked back! It was the best decision I have ever made. I personally don't think either of them are good attorneys at all, and the way I saw it, neither of them carried that office, noone did and that's why it was in shambles when I was there. Don't have a clue how they r now and frankly don't give a damn either. I wouldn't send my worst enemy there for representation, and in my opinion evan is so crooked that I doubt he knows anything other than being dirty! I'm not trying to get into an argument about this, I was just expressing my opinion, observances, and personal experience as this thread was asking for recommendation for a good child custody attorney, so I gave mine!
ok for you

WOW, no need to be an ass about it! Topix is for opinions and that's what this thread wanted to know, a good attorney for child custody. Maybe u don't care but the person who asked the qeustion does. If you don't wanna read someone's opinion, then I suggest u get the hell off topix!!!!

Donna Bolton out of Johnson City is quite good. She handles herself very well in the courtroom, the Judges like her and she communicates well with other lawyers. I would recommend her strongly for custody matters.

To "knowsemall" , seems to me you have a little animosity toward good attorney's ... have you been on the opposing side of one of them maybe ???? Lisa is my attorney and I wouldn't take anyone else if offered for free .... She is straightforward and doesn't beat around the bush therefor is thought of as a bitch... She is by far the best to go with IF you can obtain her for child custody .. She has been a God send to me. And especially if you are a woman, she has a soft spot for single mothers because she is one herself, especially if the father is a deadbeat and just wants to get out of the responsibility of taking care of his child...
Lisa, quit free advertising on here. People who know you KNOW you.

Bill hampton did nothing but take my money. All he did was consort with my husbands attorney, Lisa Rice, on what was the best way to move forward. I spent my time telling him what I needed and got no advice. Lisa was the one calling the shots. I blew $3000 is all I got with bill hampton.

Well all I can say if you have a custody issue for either Washington county or carter county TN I choose one before KNJ and can honsetly say she is doing all she can keeps in contact and makes time for me. She has been honest upfront and expects the same from her client if you lie to her or show her any reasoning other then proof then its your own fault. She is quite busy but she does care about her clients and does all she can to get situations resolved I am blessed to have her as my lawyer after years of fighting on my own. KNJ is a good lawyer and I would recommend her to anyone going through what I have been through!!!
