As an attorney, I find it very satisfying to see a case all the way through from beginning to end. What began as an unclear set of facts and allegations ends up as a dispositive settlement or verdict, cost-effectively and cleanly, and ideally benefitting our clients as much as possible.
Lacy Triplett represents financial institutions and lenders, including mortgage loan servicers and investors, national and state banks, and others in state and federal courts. Her primary focus is defending clients in complex mortgage foreclosure litigation. Her practice includes defending lender liability claims, as well as claims arising from a variety of consumer protection statutes, disclosures pursuant to the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), and federal and state laws governing loan servicing.
Lacy’s primary role is providing research, drafting and negotiating support for complex cases. As a practitioner, she is a methodical, thorough and detail-oriented researcher who is responsible for identifying the case and statutory law that supports her client’s position, and then communicating it to both opposing counsel and the court in clear, precise, and well-reasoned writing. Another major responsibility is working with opposing counsel on settlement discussions and communicating with the client.
Writing is one of Lacy’s strong suits as an attorney. As an undergraduate, she was a journalism major, and has always had an interest in excellence in writing. Whether she’s preparing a brief, a memorandum for a partner or the client, or simply an email to opposing counsel, she communicates even extremely complex concepts efficiently and persuasively
Prior to joining McGlinchey Stafford, Lacy defended broker-dealers in securities litigation before the Financial Institution Regulation Authority (FINRA). While in law school, she clerked for the Office of the Governor. Lacy also interned both with the Honorable Charles R. Malone with the Sixth Judicial Circuit of Alabama and with the U.S. Department of Justice Executive Office for Immigration Review in Memphis.
