Touro’s prestigious award recognizes Ms. Tayne’s influence as a leader in her legal field as well as her many contributions made to the community through public service.

Her mission is to reshape consumer debt resolution alternatives by presenting clients a supportive and reliable environment built on experience, trust, and results that will not only relieve clients of the stress from debts, but also the burden of the never-ending debt cycle.
