Lisle primarily focuses his practice on appellate advocacy and civil litigation. He represents clients in a wide range of disputes involving construction, healthcare, premises liability, product liability, and commercial transportation. Additionally, he handles election-related matters, defends governmental entities, and litigates constitutional issues. His experience at both the trial and appellate level allows him to offer a unique perspective when coordinating litigation and trial strategies, as well as in briefing and arguing issues on appeal, to help see a client’s case all the way through to the end.

In addition to overseeing the firm’s summer law clerk program, Lisle enjoys co-chairing the 3L mentor program, mentoring first-year law students, and serving on the Advisory Board for the Center on Professionalism at the University of South Carolina School of Law. He also serves the South Carolina Bar as a member of the Judicial Qualifications Committee and co-chair of the Young Lawyers Division’s publications and marketing committee. And he is actively involved in the South Carolina Defense Trial Attorneys Association.

A native of Columbia, South Carolina, Lisle graduated cum laude from Wofford College in 2011, receiving his bachelor’s degree in government with a concentration in political thought and a minor in economics. He then attended the University of South Carolina School of Law, where he tutored in legal writing and served as Editor in Chief of the South Carolina Law Review, earning his Juris Doctor in 2014. Prior to joining Robinson Gray, Lisle clerked for the Honorable H. Bruce Williams at the South Carolina Court of Appeals and the Honorable David C. Norton at the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina.
