Steve Lisle is one of the firm's partners, and in addition to his other practices areas, serves as the manager of the LegalShield section of the firm.

Steve devotes a considerable amount of his practice to the representation of clients in all manner of land-use matters. He has broad experience in these matters representing cities, land owners, and property developers. With the tremendous increase in public projects, he has devoted much of his effort to advising landowners in condemnation litigation. He has successfully represented landowners in numerous takings cases initiated by various federal, state, and local governments and public utilities. He is a former City Attorney and is a frequent speaker at professional seminars for attorneys, civil engineers, and other professionals involved in public projects. In addition to eminent domain court actions, he also interacts with planning officials, code enforcement officers, planning commissions, boards of adjustment, and city councils on behalf of clients on issues such as zoning, site plan, subdivision, and other developmental approvals and permits as well as conditional use permits and variances.

In addition to his land-use experience, Steve represents clients in various civil litigation matters. He advises businesses and individuals on wrongful termination claims; allegations of age, race, sex, and disability discrimination; the validity of covenants not to compete and contract negotiations in administrative proceedings and state and federal court. He also handles commercial litigation cases involving deceptive trade practices, breach of contract, tortious interference with contractual relations, and a wide spectrum of business-related claims.

Steve is a past contributor to the American Bar Association Annual Review of Condemnation Cases, and is a recipient of the Leadership Award with which he was recognized from among the many attorneys working with LegalShield throughout North America. He has also received the President's Award from the Arkansas Trial Lawyers' Association. In addition to his professional activities, Steve has served on the Board of Directors for the Arts Center of the Ozarks, the American Heart Association, and the Wilsons 3 Foundation, which recently led the campaign to build a new state-of-the-art facility for the Children's House, which is a residential treatment center for abused and neglected children.

A graduate of the U.S. Army Officer Candidate School, Steve served in the Cavalry before graduating from Hendrix College and Vanderbilt University School of Law, where he interned at the Tennessee Supreme Court. During his spare time, Steve enjoys a variety of activities including open-water swimming competitions, canoeing, hiking, and coaching his kids' sports teams.
