NISKAYUNA — Sarah Tishler's legal education began at age 2, sitting on the lap of her father, appellate attorney Nicholas Tishler, who combined reading trial transcripts with baby-sitting duty in a converted backyard shed that doubles as his home law office.

"I've still got my little Playskool plastic kids' desk in there," she said. "I learned everything from my dad. He's my inspiration. I love being an attorney."

Tishler, 28, is a 2006 Niskayuna High School graduate, Duke Law School graduate and a corporate lawyer in New York City. She voluntarily waded into a tense, confusing legal standoff at John F. Kennedy Airport in Queens the day after President Donald Trump's Jan. 27 executive order that barred all refugees from entering the U.S. for 120 days and blocked all citizens form seven predominantly Muslim countries for 90 days.
