Lisa G. Banjak
Lisa Banjak does a little bit of everything at Sitko Bruno, from retail leasing, development and acquisition, to residential development of regional resort property and representation of lenders in construction loans.
She also does a lot of listening, learning and responding. Detail-oriented and not content to simply rely on the facts, Lisa always takes the time to understand her clients’ concerns.
Ever a team member, she is integral to the firm’s development, contributing to the improvement of our form library and administrative processes, and became a Partner in January 2016.
Prior to law school, Lisa was a social worker; and prior to joining Sitko Bruno in 2011, she developed her real estate and finance practice at global and regional law firms with Pittsburgh-based offices.
Mom to two kids, Lisa spends her free time hiking, doing crafts with her daughter, working in her yard and entertaining by her family’s pool and fire ring.
Her ideal vacation? Sinking her toes in the sand in the sunny Caribbean, preferably in the winter. Living in Pittsburgh, we totally get it.
