Lisa M. Lucas


Lisa Lucas knows that relationships and experience count. During college, when she worked for former West Virginia Supreme Court Justice Margaret Workman, she was introduced to the legal world. That job developed into an interest in attending law school. Then a later clerkship led to an interest in the area of bankruptcy.

Without those experiences, she might not have wound up at Carrington Coleman, where she has developed her practice, focusing primarily on bankruptcy and financial reorganizations, as well as representation of secured creditors, landlords, municipal entities, directors and officers, and plan trustees. Some of her recent cases have included reorganizations in the mining and retail industries, as well as real estate and municipal development.

At Carrington Coleman, Lisa enjoys the relationships she’s been able to develop with the partners and clients alike, working with and helping clients as a team to help achieve the smartest resolution possible.
