Carlisle Law, LLC was founded by Wendy Carlisle.  Wendy has nationwide experience counseling corporate clients on best business practices, negotiating and drafting contracts, and litigating cases in a wide variety of matters.

Wendy Carlisle began her legal career litigating products liability matters nationwide for a large security alarm component manufacturer.   From there, she also began representing installers and monitoring companies of residential and commercial burglar and fire alarm systems.

Now at Carlisle Law, LLC, Wendy draws on her legal experience and vast industry knowledge to draft sales, service, and monitoring contracts, and represent security-industry clients–large and small–in business negotiations and litigation.
