Cathy has been with SLLDA since her clerkship began in 1996. When she passed the bar, she was hired as an appellate attorney where she served for six years. She then transferred to the trial division in 2003. Ms. Lilly has worked on numerous cases, representing clients with charges ranging from misdemeanor dog-off-leash to the most serious of felony offenses. If she had her druthers, she would travel the world, eat good food, and collect art. Her love for criminal defense work comes in a close second, however. Since it actually provides a living, whereas the former does not, she continues to fight the good fight at LDA. It is her pleasure and honor to have a career at LDA among so many fantastic colleagues doing the good work that she believes in…and taking the occasional vacation to travel, eat good food, and see art.
