What was your route to the top? Focus, perseverance, perspective and balance. After graduating from Emory University School of Law, I joined Proskauer Rose’s Labor and Employment department in New York City where I worked with and was mentored by some of the most talented and brightest attorneys in the country. After three years, I moved to Atlanta with Fisher & Phillips (F&P) and honed my skills as an employment law advisor and litigator, while also gaining experience in attracting, retaining and developing clients. While at F&P, I had the great fortune of being able to evolve as an employment lawyer while having and raising three children. Thirteen years later, I jumped at the chance to join an innovative and unique start-up law firm, Taylor English Duma. I joined Taylor English in 2006, just after its first anniversary and with only 20 attorneys. As its first female equity partner and first female Vice Chair and Practice Group Leader, I have been instrumental in growing Taylor English into a leading and diverse top-ten law firm in Atlanta.
