Taier Perlman, Esq., leads the Rural Law Initiative; there she combines her passion for counseling entrepreneurs and small businesses with her love for sustainable agriculture and farm-fresh food. A graduate of Brooklyn Law School (located in her hometown), Ms. Perlman focused her studies on dispute resolution and legal counseling, working with diverse NYC-based start-ups. In an unconventional post-bar exam trip, she worked on a biodiverse organic farm, where she developed a deep appreciation for the agrarian lifestyle. After litigating cases in New York City courts, she moved to Albany to pick up the reins of the Rural Law Initiative, where she legally supports entrepreneurs, businesses, and farmers in rural New York. Ms. Perlman enjoys meditating, mountain hiking, volunteering on farms, and working on her various art projects.
