Today’s spotlight: Lisa Reilly Payton

Title: Senior partner, Frazer Ryan Goldberg & Arnold

Background: Reilly Payton focuses her practice on tax controversy, tax planning and estate planning. She also assists business owners in business formation, succession planning and tax planning. She earns both her B.A. and J.D. degrees from ASU.

Source of pride: “I am most proud of becoming an equity partner at my firm at the age of 36. As a female lawyer, I am very proud of this accomplishment. I recently read a statistic that only 18 percent of law firm equity partners are women. I hope to show other young, female attorneys that they can be leaders as well.”
