Lisa has operated her own law practice since 2015, providing employment law services primarily geared toward small and mid-sized businesses, litigation consulting (a/k/a freelance legal services), and appellate representation to clients in Georgia and throughout the United States. Before opening her own law practice, Lisa taught courses in Civil Procedure, Employment Law, Remedies, and Contracts as a member of the full-time faculty of Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School. At AJMLS, Lisa rose through the ranks from Assistant to Associate and then full Professor, and earned tenured status. Her academic career yielded a variety of publications and presentations, including articles delving into complex employment law and procedural issues published by law journals at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Tennessee, and the University of Minnesota, among others.

Before joining the AJMLS faculty, Lisa spent four years in the Labor & Employment Group at Alston & Bird, where she represented large national and multi-national corporations and executives in a variety of employment law matters. Her practice involved extensive litigation, including defense of claims alleging discrimination, harassment, and violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act and Fair Labor Standards Act. She also drafted employment contracts, restrictive covenants, and employee policy manuals, and provided regular advice and counsel on such matters as reductions in force, internal investigations, and personnel management.

During law school, Lisa served as Executive Articles Editor of the Georgia Law Review and competed as a national semi-finalist in the American Bar Association’s National Appellate Advocacy Competition after winning the regional round and earning the award for the best brief.

Lisa is married to an avid runner/cyclist and entrepreneur, and they have four children. In what little spare time she can find, Lisa enjoys running, competing in triathlons, skiing on either water or snow, wine tasting, and fine foods.
