Lisa Taylor brings a unique skill set to her law practice, which is built on the invaluable experience she gained as an employment litigator at the international law firm of Alston & Bird, and the knowledge, intellect and skill she honed teaching and writing about civil procedure and employment law as a full-time, tenured law professor.  Lisa combines her experience, knowledge, intellect, and skill to offer exceptional personalized client experiences at extraordinary value.


When Lisa is not busy delivering efficient and effective legal services to her clients, she can typically either be found shuttling her three young children to their varied and many school, sporting and extracurricular activites, or engaging in her own form of therapy through running, biking, or swimming (and, quite naturally, racing a triathlon here and there).  Her other interests include college football (Go Dawgs!), fine (and budget-worthy-but-tasty) wines, and spending time with family and friends.

Such a kind and professional laywer! Deeply appreacited!
Lisa was very professional, friendly, and kind. She has provided excellent suggestions, advice, and help on my case which is being falsely accused of bad faith. She helped me win the case which was against a powerful party! She protected my rights and encouraged me through this 14 months-long and stressful period. And they offered a discount rate for their kindness. I really thank Lawyer Lisa Taylor, who is so kind and professional. Strong suggestion to anyone who is seeking legal advice and support!

Very efficient and easy to work with
We hired Lisa for couple of projects- Handbook and Contracts. She is very knowledgeable and with her good listening skills addressed our concerns and questions patiently. She was very responsive at all times and gave us enough time to review and comment without rushing us into decisions. We will definitely use her on future projects.

Great Experience
We hired Ms. Taylor to write our company policy and advice us in other legal matters regarding our small business. She did a fabulous job and was a pleasure to work with. We are very pleased with the policy she put together and thankful for her expertise. We have since hired her again to assist with writing a policy for our non-profit. We would highly recommend Ms. Taylor.

Litigation Attorney | Mar 19
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Lisa Taylor has and continues to be an invaluable resource for our law firm and me. I worked with Lisa on two extensive motions in two different areas of law. The projects required robust analysis, review, writing, and legal acumen. On top of that, we were working on tight deadlines. She exceeded all expectations on every front. Great communication helped move the project along and give me peace of mind that we remained on the same page on the project. We handily won both motions. Beyond the work product being excellent, what impressed me was how Lisa was invested in the cases and demonstrated care and empathy for the situations. I am grateful for getting to know Lisa and recommend her without reservation and look forward to working with her in the future."
Employment and labor Attorney | Jul 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Lisa is literally a walking library on employment law and the controlling cases. We often work together on cases and she is a fair but tough litigator who knows how to assess a case and always informs her clients of the options and pros/cons before moving forward. I consider Lisa a trusted advisor."
Employment and labor Attorney | Apr 26
