Ms. Reisman is an of counsel attorney in the firm's New Orleans office and has more than 20 years of litigation experience. Her primary practice areas include products liability, offshore and land-based personal injury and property damage claims, construction disputes, maritime matters, and toxic torts.

In products liability matters, Ms. Reisman's practice has included cases involving aerial platforms, offshore drilling tools and equipment, building materials, and chemical compounds. Ms. Reisman has represented clients who have suffered property damage and deferred production arising from offshore casualties and she is commonly asked to interpret contractual indemnity and insurance provisions as well as construction contracts. She has successfully defended consumer class action certification attempts and attempts at class certification made by neighboring residents in chemical release areas. In the admiralty arena, Ms. Reisman has handled cases involving barge breakaways and cargo disputes as well as Jones Act claims.

In addition to her maritime work, Ms. Reisman has been involved in numerous individual personal injury and death matters involving industrial accidents and alleged toxic exposures occurring on land. Ms. Reisman has extensive experience in questioning medical, engineering, and scientific experts at trial, in class certification and Daubert hearings, and in depositions throughout the country and abroad. Her courtroom achievements include the rigorous and successful defense of a toxic tort lawsuit in which the plaintiff claimed significant brain damage and sought both compensatory and punitive damages. The four-week jury trial concluded with a “zero” verdict for her client.

Before beginning her practice at Liskow & Lewis, Ms. Reisman graduated summa cum laude from Tulane University Law School, where she was inducted into the Order of the Coif and was an Associate Editor of the Tulane Law Review. She subsequently served as a law clerk to the Honorable Luther F. Cole, Associate Justice, Supreme Court of Louisiana, from 1990-1991.
