Former shareholder of a defense firm, corporate counsel at Liberty Mutual, and co-founder of Ladder Down, Alison has a resume few can co...

I’m not alone!

As a young(ish) civil defense litigator, living in the south and who has an 18 month old, this podcast is invaluable!! I’ve been practicing for a little over 7 years and I constantly tell people about the issues that y’all address and people look at me like I’m crazy! So, thank you for the validation and PLEASE keep doing episodes!!
