Allison E. Laffey



As an associate at LLG, Allison brings the unrelenting passion of a young attorney to each case and every client.

Allison cut her teeth at the Atlanta offices of a large national firm, where her practice focused primarily on complex product liability, premises liability, and professional negligence and malpractice. She also has experience in toxic tort litigation and consulting.  Prior to that, Allison worked at Rockwell Automation in Milwaukee.

Allison is the only LLG attorney who can honestly say she interned for the Canadian Senate.  And like most younger associates, Allison is ambitious in seeking out opportunities to enhance her skillset. LLG integrates Allison into its client-focused teams where her youthful exuberance and brains are best put to use.
