Biography

Lisa’s client-centered law practice includes advice, counseling, and litigation in all aspects of labor and employment law as well as general business law advice, document drafting and litigation of business disputes. She also utilizes her expertise in legal research and writing and knowledge of the appellate process to provide top-notch representation in civil appeals in both state and federal courts. Most recently, Lisa became registered through the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution as a mediator and arbitrator, and she brings her wide range of legal experience and her ability to see and understand all sides of a dispute to assist other parties and their attorneys with resolution out of court.

Lisa’s law-practice philosophy begins with developing personal client relationships, whether they are owners/operators of small or mid-sized businesses, in-house general counsel or human resources professionals in large corporations, or individuals. She learns what the client needs and understands their goals, then applies careful, well-informed legal analysis to bring about the best possible result, whether advising on compliance and decision-making or resolving disputes through trial or appellate litigation. Although Lisa’s approach is collaborative and practical, her competitive nature fuels her desire to achieve victory in whatever form that may take given the context of the legal matter at hand. She is a tenacious litigator and skilled negotiator when the circumstances call for it, and she demands personal perfection  in all aspects of her law practice, while priding herself on maintaining utmost professionalism at all times.

Prior Experience

Prior to partnering with John to form Stembridge Taylor in 2021, Lisa operated her own law firm for nearly six years, providing many of the same services that she now brings to her partnership. She began her career as an associate in the labor and employment group at Alston & Bird LLP and taught law school for 12 years.
