Lisa began her legal career in 1994. After 10 years with Kenyon Disend, Lisa accepted an in-house City Attorney position. She has served in that capacity for the cities of Newcastle, Bainbridge Island, Burien, and most recently Sammamish. Lisa has broad experience in all aspects of municipal law, with a particular emphasis on negotiating labor agreements, dealing with a broad range of employment issues including significant experience with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family Medical Leave Act, land use and SEPA/NEPA issues, franchise agreements with wireless carriers, drafting wireless codes, public records, and open meeting issues.
In addition, Lisa worked for T-Mobile for two years negotiating contracts for the network engineering division of the company. Prior to becoming an attorney, Lisa spent five years at the Boeing Company negotiating defense contracts with the U.S. Navy.
We are excited to welcome Lisa back to Kenyon Disend to continue her career in the place where it all began.
