Attorney Lisa LeFante

  • Practicing Family Law for 32 years
  • Parenting Coordinator
  • Licensed to practice Family Law in NC & NJ


Lisa LeFante joined Triangle Smart Divorce after a twenty-one-year courtship that was as inevitable as it was drawn out. Twenty-one years. That’s how long Lisa has known Jenny Bradley. They hit it off from the start, so much so that they will both tell you that they taught the other everything they know about Family Law.

Lisa brings a wealth of Family Law experience to Triangle Smart Divorce. She began her law career in 1989 and has focused almost exclusively on the many complexities and intricacies of Family Law as a member of the New Jersey, North Carolina, and United States Supreme Court Bars.

Lisa is tenacious. Her tenacity is well earned. After she graduated, cum laude, from Lafayette College, she attended Cornell Law School where – she will happily confirm this – she trudged to classes uphill both ways through knee-deep snow. This will come as no surprise to anyone who has ever visited Ithaca, New York.

We could write about Lisa’s experience with every aspect of Family Law from divorce to child custody to property division to support and alimony to paternity suits and prenuptial agreements. And, we could write about her philosophy – one, of course, deeply shared by Triangle Smart Divorce – that court is the last resort. Though she has extensive litigation experience.  We could write about her tireless efforts as a Parenting Coordinator.

Instead, we’re just going to point to her fervent belief that the best film of the last twenty years is Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.  Somehow, that says it all.

When not imparting more wisdom to Jenny, Lisa is guiding her two children in their young adulthood. Luke will be starting at VMI this fall on a lacrosse scholarship, and his sister, Kylie just graduated from App State. Lisa and her husband, Dave, also have two indifferent cats and a black lab called Thor, short for Thurgood.

Two more things: Lisa is a teammate of Jenny’s on the Bad News Barristers, the seven-time champions of the Wake County Bar Softball League.  They were also teammates on a local softball team, The Gimps, until Jenny decided she was too gimpy to play in two leagues. If she couldn’t be an attorney, Lisa’s dream – and this may say as much about her as her favorite movie – would be to be a singer, despite the fact she absolutely cannot carry a tune. A fact that would not stop her for a minute.
