Lisa Pace’s law career began in 1992 as a criminal defense attorney. Fighting for her clients and for what is right and ethical was the passion that has always driven her successful career. Her clients have found that there is no better advocate than Lisa. The role as a defense attorney taught Lisa that there is a truth in every person.
Lisa later took that fervent skill of representing others into the real estate arena, where she handled zoning matters all over Long Island. Lisa grew up in a world of real estate development and law and learned from the best; her Dad, John Pace, an attorney, builder and business man. She turned those life lessons into an amazing law practice and real estate development career. Lisa has built numerous houses, managed commercial properties, and has vast experience renovating industrial and office properties. Lisa is now developing a 90 unit apartment complex in Bay Shore, New York.
Her unique skills in the area of real estate development and management have always proven to be a big asset in her work with real estate zoning law. Lisa has represented large pharmaceutical retailers, banks, and many local businesses. Although, Lisa’s favorite project is the Veterinary Medical Center of Long Island.

Lisa also obtained Town of Islip Industrial Development Agency tax abatement benefits for the project and remains counsel to the hospital for all of its expansions, development and real estate needs. Lisa has become proficient in representing Veterinarians for their business needs.
Lisa’s mother, Lorraine Pace, a tireless advocate for Breast Cancer research, has taught her to fight for what she believes in.
